Wonderful, grown up place for a good meal, wonderful music and not the hassle of dealing with downtown.
Also, wonderful that the food, drinks and entertainment are reasonable priced!
We will be going back soon!
The music was awesome! Jennifer Grimm is entertaining and has a fabulous voice, sax and guitarist were wonderful. We stumbled into this without knowing we would be entertained as well as having dinner. Food and drinks were good. Excellent value with the entertainment!
Met a friend here for an early dinner. The music was great. Excellent piano player who didn't really interfere with out conversation but added to the enjoyment of the evening. Food was very good and filling. I had been hungry for a hamburger and this one was excellent.
This was my third visit to Crooner's. They always have two or more solid dinner specials - I had the fish & chips. Excellent!. Enjoyed drinks and music of Willie Murphy in the lounge. Iconic Blues/R&B! A memorable night with my sister on her birthday.
wonderful gathering with friends for a birthday. The reason to go to Crooners is LIVE MUSIC. Nice atmosphere. Great sound system (not too loud or distorted). We had wonderful service. Food okay.
I come every time you have Butch Thompson performing at the piano we are so blessed to have such a person in our midst
All good as far as reservations go. I was disappointed when we got there because we were greeted immediately and courteously, but were walked along the live music room, through a hall, around another corner, and placed in a room with no music playing but had the faintest playing of the live music over the speakers. Menu was easily understood, but different than the online menu (could just be the seasonal changes). Waitress (Abbey) was very friendly and attentive and kept water filled almost entire night. Food service was quick, we were given a decent amount of privacy, the food was delicious (I got the salmon and seasonal vegetables). Tab was slightly above what I would have expected because the experience felt like 3-4 stars, but felt like I was paying for 4-5, and didn't even get offered a chance to hear or view the live music.
Suggestion: ask quests if they would like to sit nearer to the live music so they can at least hear it because the "overflow" room has it so faintly on the speakers they were better off not having the music on at all.
Great food and service, will definitely come back!
Always good food and friendly staff.
On occasion the lounge might be understaffed, due to a busier night than expected, so the service is slower than typical, but generally a favorite place for us!
We loved the music & food. Only gripe is the confusing method of reservation. Thought we needed 2 separate ones for show & dinner. When we were served in music room our Open Table reservation was not checked off. The couple we were with had same confusion
Food wasn't great, took 15 minutes for our server to stop at our table took an additional hour for our food to come out. The bar was great but the regular dining I wouldn't recommend.
Highest of Recommendations. Absolutely loved the place from the food, service and atmosphere; it was a real gem to find and we will certainly be going back.
The food is great and the service is outstanding. I love this place!!!
We - my children and the two of us - have enjoyed Crooner's immensely, ever since we found it. The ambiance has always been good, but is gorgeous! since the re-decorating. We also make it
our responsibility to SPREAD THE WORD about Crooner's, and hope to have it for the next
Full of energy, fun, great server, while eating dinner music was a little too loud hard to talk but otherwise music was great. Great food selection from sandwiches to steaks.
Always a reliable dinner. Great food. Quiet dinner.

Went here for the first time to celebrate my wife's birthday. We love the old supper club genre of restaurants/clubs. They did not disappoint. The server was friendly and attentive. The food arrived rather quickly despite some other reviews to the contrary. This was a Friday night as well and moderately busy so not sure what those other people experienced. We had prime rib and desserts and they were very good. We stayed for the show in the Dunsmore room. I've never been a huge jazz fan, but after listening to Jeremy Siskind I would definitely go back for more jazz. The Dunsmore room is beautiful and a really nice intimate place to listen to some music and relax looking out onto the lake. We will definitely be back!
The overall experience was not bad. The waiter was attentive and nice. But the sea food platter that was fried all tasted exactly the same and the price was too high for the quality and quantity of the food. The same goes for the sandwiches, smelt good, looked good, but there was no flavor. Not a bad experience but just not as great as hoped.
Great venue for live music. Food is good and the service was great.
Old fashioned supper club meets cool jazz/live music venue! Prompt service, tasty food, the Parmesan crusted walleye was delicious! We ate in the in the bar area, close to the music stage, it was fun to enjoy the food, wine and music.
Brought some business friends here from Indonesia. Awesome food and cocktails, and an experience of live piano lounge music that made my guests know they were special.
My wife and I were there for New Year's Eve and were very pleased. From the service to the food choices to the music in the bar after dinner we were happy with everything. We will most definitely be back.
Four of us went to Crooners for a New Year’s Eve dinner and live music. The four course meal was terrific and the music from the Scottie Miller band was perfect.
Nice place. NYE menu was $50 for a four course meal. Food was good but not great. Lobster bisque and squash bisque were very good but the beef and the cordon bleu both seemed to be missing some complexity. Gravy served with the potatoes was ok but didn't have any depth to it. Chocolate ganache was too rigid and doughy. Bussers seemed to be having a lot of chatter on the floor and not making way for customers. We peaked at the lounge room and the bar area and it is a beautiful place. I looked at the menu and prices seemed a bit steep for the quality of food, on par with Sarna's a few miles a way but $5-10 more per entree.
We were seated in the Fireside room next to the entrance to the Dunsmore (sp?) Room. When the doors were closed the entertainment there made for pleasant background music but when the doors opened to allow passage to and from that room the music overpowered conversation at our table. These were infrequent and brief interruptions which were well tolerated by our group. The butternut squash soup was excellent. Most of the group opted for the crab stuffed walleye and all of them commented on the food as very well or excellent in preparation and taste. I had the chicken which I found to be just slightly over-cooked which resulted in the chicken being a little dry. The accompanying vegetables were excellent. The dessert choices were well received and, judging by the total consumption of the items, were very tasty and not oversized. While one of our group has a peanut allergy our waitress was sure to verify with the staff that his need for nut-free food was recognized and accommodated.
At no time did we feel rushed to complete our dinning experience and enjoyed our post meal conversation.
We were seated at a window table and absolutely froze. At one point a fan came on and blew cold air on us besides the cold air from the window! It was New Year's Eve. It totally overshadowed the rest of our experience at Crooners which was really good.
Food and service was good. We were in the "fireside" room which had a fireplace at the other end of the room and not even viable or on. We were all freezing and kept our coats on the entire time, maybe a space heater in that corner or some outside window coverings might be a good addition. Actually couldn't wait to be done sitting there, thought lounge would be better, but not much.
The service was terribly slow and not a lot of apologies or explanation. This place has great ambiance
And could be great but the service was soooo slow. We were there 15 minutes before a server came to our table and 30 minutes for our first drink. The saving grace was the Erin Schwab show.
My only complaint was that the waitress was too slow at taking our entree order (we had long finished our appetizers before she returned to take our main dish order). The entertainment had started before we had finished eating our dinner and we missed the intro. We had scheduled our meal for two hours in advance and that should have been sufficient.
We had dinner with our best friends in the room with the Southern exposure. It was a beautifully decorated, quiet and comfortable room with a lovely view of the lights reflecting off of Moore Lake. The waitress was pleasant and took us seamlessly to our seat in the northern room for the show when we were finished dining.
Overall, great experience. Our dinner took about 40 mins., but we were in no hurry. Also, we had placed our order as the placed filled up for the live music, so that probabaly had something to do with it. Good food, music, and ambiance. Cool experience as there are very little places like this that still exist.
Good food. Service on the slow side. Apparently, they have a very small kitchen. We didn’t mind, as we were celebrating with family and could hear the music from the lounge.
Celebrating the Holidays
Food was great.
This place used to be much better. The servers and decor are still wonderful. Mixed drinks, perfect. Menu limited, boring, high priced. Tables are too close, no room to move around. Also, we were not notified until arrival that we would be sharing our table (that we reserved over a month ahead) with another couple. Not pleased. According the menu given, my entree was to include a potato side, but was served wild rice. Not pleased. Acoustics need improvement and they need to figure out volume control for such a small space. I don't think we will be go back for dinner and night out. Maybe stop in for a drink if the music is someone we love to hear. Too bad, this used to be our favorite, go-to spot.
A throwback '60s era ambiance with excellent drinks, very good food, and phenomenal live music (predominantly jazz).
My neighbor send I went to Crooners just because! The wait staff were wonderful and attentive but not overbearing. The food was hot and delicious. After dinner, we went on the lounge and listened to a Jazz Ensemble and really enjoyed! Thank you for making our evening special
This was our 38th wedding anniversary. It was very noisy when we entered. However, after looking around we could see that this was a happy and social place. Many tables had groups or couples having a great time. We, too, had a great time celebrating our special day. The food was excellent. We will definitely come back!
Was very nice. Waiter seemed like he needed more training on the menu.
