Love going to this old theater. Broadway quality plays and musicals. The food is not gourmet quality but average. The atmosphere and performance make this a winner.

Circa 21 never fails to provide high quality theatrical productions in our hometown. Through the years I have seen numerous plays and musicals in their theater ranging from big name shows, like "Cats" to lesser known shows that were created for off Broadway use. The professional performers that are brought in continue to improve with each season, and they enlist... More

This was our first time at Circa 21. The friends we went with have been several times and have always raved about it. We went to Les Miserables. Show was very good. Food was not. All the meat entrees had too much seasoning and they did not pair well together. This was Valentine's weekend so it was a disappointment. We... More

Circa 21 always puts on quality shows with good food too. The Bootleggers are your singing wait staff which perform preshow entertainment as well as provide excellent service. A mixture of professional and amateur actors are used to present shows. Always an excellent evening of entertainment.

We love the afternoon shows where they serve you at the table. The plays have been fantastic, the staff more than accommodating and prices are right

I try to visit this delightful dinner theatre on my holidays to Iowa. Great food and entertainment, with a second to none service. Wish they still had these kind of venues in the UK, sadly this is not the case. Well worth the visit.

we enjoy being able to eat then see a play all in one place. The food is ok leaning towards good. Good seats no matter where you are seated.

A great performance was seen by a packed house Friday night Dec. 5th. You could feel the story come alive. The pre show by the bootlegs was full of energy and very entertaining. The tap was especially delightful. The buffet before the show had variety and quality. The turkey and stuffing simply great. Thanks all who made this performance memorable.

We were there Dec. 4th for a Thurs. Matinee. We saw White Christmas and it was excellent. I was with a group of senior citizens and several of us are diabetics. Couldn't you have had one meal choice that would have been easier for a diabetic? Sugary carrots was the only vegetable. Then, there was choice of turkey with a... More
