I was there for a Bellemy Brothers concert. The tickets were bought last minute, and I might have picked different seats, they were still good seats. Because the venue is small, I do not think there would be a bad seat in the house. It was a pleasant evening, and would recommend the theatre.

The meal was all you can eat, family style. It did not disappoint. Plenty of good food. The show was good. There is not a bad seat in the house, even the back seats are great. It is a small intimate theater.
