Tommy Gun's Garage is a fun place to have a special evening out. The place is not fancy, and not large, but just right for the kind of entertainment it provides. The show is like a variety show with skits and singing and dancing done by actors dressed as gangsters and flapper girls. Most of them were very talented people.... More

A fun evening out! The meal served is a hearty portion and absolutely delicious. I personally didn’t care the dessert (rainbow sherbet). Would be nice if they offered an alternate option. Limited, but adequate wine selection. The show was fabulous! You never know what to expect with an interactive show, and this time it was hilarious! I can’t remember when... More

I took my 18-year old son to this show tonight and we had a fantastic time. We showed up without a reservation, but they fit us in and made us feel so welcome. The performers are terrific--talented and funny. We laughed all night long. I had the prime rib and it was tender and cooked perfectly. My son had the... More

Step into the fascinating world of the Roaring Twenties, as you enter Tommy Gun's Garage, the ultimate destination for an interactive audience spectacular in Chicago. The theme begins before you even walk into the building at this amazing dinner theater, where a secret password will gain your entry to the "garage", which looks like it was used as a set... More

With pictures of local gangland notables of the period. Dinner,which is included is good, with a choice of steak, pork chops, chicken etc. with salad and baked... More

This was a hoot! Such fun. A password to get in. The ladies called Dollface and the guys Mugs. A walk into the 20s, sorta... But what a great show which our 10 year old and 16 year old both loved. Food was good too. Highly recommended.

You can have a fun time at Tommy Gun's Garage. It is an interactive dinner/show where the staff are also the performers. They did a great job for what it was. They were funny, they kept us engaged, and they made sure the audience participated as well. The food was just average, nothing out of the ordinary. They try to... More

The studio is great, giving the ambiance of 1920s, the staff who are also the artist are all professional and nice, fair for money a little bit expensive for 3 person we paid 250US including dinner with 3 course. Taste is ok nothing special. The performance is entertaining but very standard. Maybe they need to improve by develop story in... More

I won't restate things mentioned already in other reviews; I think most of them pretty much capture the essence of the night. This was pretty much what I expected after reading those reviews. The joint is not marked outside (presumably because that's how speakeasys were back in the day). I particularly enjoyed the one-on-one interactions with the staff. They stay... More

That's a sound you hear in this most fun and exciting restaurant. The Host Gangster greets you at the door and all your servers are in character to give you the atmosphere of a true Speakeasy in Old Chicago. The food was great and the interactive dinner show was fabulous. Wouldn't you know that they picked my little old Sicilian... More
