We just came from Ed Fletcher's Early Bird Theatre. What a wonderful evening. The buffet is first rate. As well as a decent salad bar, there was a hot food line with potatoes, rice, vegetables, meatballs (delicious!), salmon, chicken, ham and roast beef. The hot food was nice and hot. Everything was very fresh and tasty. Dessert was a bit... More

Tried the dinner theater last night after reading about it. Really and truly is fantastic. The salad bar was excellent and then the hot buffet was great too. You are in a large room with salad bar at one end, hot buffet at the other end and large stage on the middle wall. While enjoying the meal there was a... More

The buffet is incredible! Truly delicious selections along with coffee or tea and then sit back and laugh and laugh and laugh at the wonderful theatrical antics by delightful actors.actresses. All for $29.90+! We saw 'Caught in the Net' last Thursday and it runs until March 1st. Get on-line and buy tickets. You'll be so glad you did! www.earlybirddinnertheatre.com

The theatre is new, beautiful and clean. The wait staff is exceptional and well trained to handle a room of 200. Everything is timed perfectly. Friendly greeting, personalized seating, very nice salad station and superb dinner buffet by Banquet Masters. The show provided a shocking end of no less than three or four surprises. I took a friend here as... More

I heartily agree with every thing Ivan S said in his 12/24/14 review, except the comment about alcohol. They now have a bar so you can no long BYOB (Florida state law.) And, I would like to emphasize his point that they accept cash, only. We have been going to the Early Bird for several years and have loved every... More

We just got back from the new play that started on 1/10/15 and runs for about 6 weeks. We have seen about 10 plays so far as the EBDT and by far this was the funniest. It was a laugh a minute and the cast was superb as usual. Hard to believe they can keep a straight face through most... More

This is a great experience. You make reservations ahead of thime for Thrusday through Sunday and pay cash at the door. A great buffet dinner with carving station followed by a Farce (funny play) and after the show you can meet and greet the actors. In fact, the actors eat at the same time as patrons. Mostly seniors attend as... More

We went to the Saturday night show and dinner (they have matinees too) and thoroughly enjoy the whole experience. Very professional actors in the play (Miracle on South Division Street) and the wait staff couldn't do enough to serve us. More than enough food on the buffet and someone slicing roast beef and ham at the end of the buffet... More

Love going here. They usually have light hearted comedies and farces which I very much. The service is good, the food is okay but the plays make up for anything lacking in that department. My daughter and son-in-law acted in two or three of their plays and they enjoyed working wirh the theater staff and everyone else. A lot of... More
