What a relaxing evening as we ate a fine buffet, had time to catch up with friends, and then settle back for an outstanding performance. The building, itself, is great architecture and while we were seated in the middle, there was absolutely no difficulty in seeing the performance. The buffet was plentiful with selections that should please anyone, and the... More

We have not been able to come for several years because of where we live but we were able to check out The Sound of Music recently. Wow! Dinner was fabulous and the service even better. I also recommend splurging on dessert at intermission. Our bootlegger (waiter) also played Max in the show. His performance was fantastic in both roles.... More

Have gone to several shows/plays at the Circa. Great venue and entertainment. Food buffet is excellent. Table service is superb. Desserts are great. Plays are professionally done. Never disappointed.

We went to see "White Christmas," with my bonus daughter. It was a wonderful show, as always. Circa really knows how to entertain you.

We saw Sound of Music today at the matinee. Wonderful production! Awesome meal. And the Bootleggers did an awesome job of entertaining on stage and off. Highly recommend if you've never been.

This is a fantastic place to visit ! They have a buffet style food service and excellent wait staff who are also performers as well. There are at least two meats available and a large assortment of veggies and other foods available,prime rib is not unusual. The site is an old remodeled theatre and part of the deal is food...

I have been there numerous times over the years. Never disappointed... The last two shows have been remarkable.. The Sound of Music cast couldn't be more perfect. Les Mesiralles ( Forgive the spelling) was Good from beginning to end. Saw a Bobby Darren impersonator a year or so ago that if you closed your eyes, you would have thought it... More
