Jellyrolls - worth it?

So, does anyone have an opinion on whether Jellyrolls is worth the time and money? We are only at WDW 3 nights in January. I really enjoyed my dueling pianos experience in Vegas, but frankly, the cover charge for Jellyrolls is scaring me off a bit.

If the cover charge is scaring you then the prices will scare you even more!

But, you get what you pay for and Jellyrolls is a blast.

We just took a 4 night trip and spent 2 of those 4 nights at Jellyrolls. The entertainment is well worth the cover charge.

Haha! Yeah, that was the scary part...Disney-priced drinks on top of the cover charge! But I think we might give a shot. Thanks, everyone!

Ouch! That is a little steep, what are the average drink prices?

Our Ratings of Jelly Rolls: (4/5/2012)
. . . food price value: B (for drinks)
. . . food quality: n/a
. . . food quantity per serving: C
. . . food prep speed: n/a
. . . food selection: n/a
. . . seating quantity: B
. . . seating comfort: B
. . . eatery atmosphere: B
. . . eatery convenience: C
. . . staff friendliness: C
. . . staff attentiveness: D
. . . character interaction: n/a

NOTE: Jelly Rolls is an adult entertainment "bar". Pianists play
requests from the audience. This is a copy of the Howling At The
Moon locations. Drink are a liitle sttep, but reasonably priced for
WDW. It is a non-smoking facility and they serve only snacks. Once
the place gets rockin' (about 9:30pm), it is great fun. There are two
pianists playing continuously - each hour the two swap for two new,
so music does not stop. They play 60's-70's-80's oldies and no rap,
raggae, etc. Really good for anyone over 21, and for us older folks.

Maybe I'm too young here, but I've paid $50 to get in bars in Atlantic City, and $30 here in Boston. $12 doesn't seem bad at all!

Jellyrolls is one of the only cover charges that I do think is worthwhile. It's a great time.

As for the report of the performers not doing any rap songs, you're really missing out on their rendition of "Baby Got Back."

Maybe I'm just a really old 32! I live about 2 hours from Philadelphia, so I really don't see the high prices much.

I went last November earlyish around 8 or before & there were no seats left. We had a beer or two & left. It was a waste of $$$

Moving to Theme Parks and Attractions, as Jellyrolls is not a restaurant.
