I love this place (for lunch!) For dancing it's awfully small and therefore crowded. But Don Miller is wonderful. Here's the hot tip: Go there from 8-9, leave at their first break, and then go to Memories. Don does his "jam" the first number of the second set, but his break is 1/2 hour, so if you want to wait, he does one of the best versions of "Sing, Sing..etc." that I've ever heard, but we've been told that after that, everyone gets out on the (already too small) dance floor and tries to emulate what they've just seen, but they've had to much to drink. So, to stay after the break, you do so at your own risk. I'd give it an "A" for him, a "C-" for everything else.

Teeny tiny floor, and really no place to sit unless you want to order dinner (even then it's a hassle.) But, Don Miller is there, so people will always go. As a tip, this is what I do, get a table and order the dinner salad. The house dressing is delicious and the salad is not to pricy.
