  • Imagine watching your friends jam in a garage in high school. Now replace your friends with some of the best musicians in the world. That's what a show at the Baked Potato feels like. Last night someone was so close to the stage, his head was less than 12 inches from the bass players head stock. If I lived closer, I would visit pretty often. The friendly staff is an added bonus.
  • Tons of fun. Nice small place. The music was great. I had good drinks. I didn't try the Baked potatoes but it smelled great.
