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

Great food and very fun interactive atmosphere. Great for group and couple alike. The crew works very hard to take good care and provides a very enjoyable experience. Definitely a recommendation in old town. Glad we went.

Went when in Chicago for a conference. Had a great evening! Everyone was in character from the moment we walked in until we left. The host, waiters and waitresses were also the characters in the show. The show was interactive and some audience members were pulled on stage. There were school groups along with adults and the dialogue was suitable... More

Saw this dinner show on the internet (www.tommygunsgarage.com). Sounded like fun, and it was. The place and the show are based on a 1920's era prohibition speakeasy. Actors are dressed as "gangsters" and "flappers" too. Some audience participation especially if you are celebrating something or with a group. We dressed up similarly and were asked by a couple sitting near... More

Enjoyed the show. Dinner was good. Advertised online, via confirmation email and on the menu that tips and taxes were included in the cost per person, and yet they asked for tips at the end of the show. It was a bit off putting.
