Like your comedy a little R rated and like a few drinks this is the place for you, try to eat somewhere else food is pedestrian, only the pizza is safe

We came to the Shadowbox on Saturday to see Sex at the Box. We have enjoyed every one of the sketch comedies we have seen. The staff are friendly and very organized. The shows are laugh out loud funny. I would recommend the Shadowbox to anyone with a good sense of humor.

Shadowbox Live is known for its Unique performance-arts venue & cafe staging rock musicals & sketch comedies in daytime & evening. We have been to many of their performances and love the "Saturday Nite Live" type of comedy in their sketches. They offer unique food - always good- but the fun part is that the wait staff is made up... More

Excellent service - waiters, greeters, table runners, are all members of the cast, which is really cool. Very friendly, and helpful. Food was quickly served after being ordered. Limited menu choices for those looking for healthier options - menu available on web site. Talented performers - actors, actresses, musicians all quite talented Clean facility

I and my work peers went here today for an end of year team outing. The food was excellent. It was a private buffet with a good variety of mostly healthy food options. Obviously the portions were perfect since it was buffet style. The entertainment followed and was probably a PG13 rating. With the Christmas holiday themed "lunchbox", there were... More

This brewery district gem knocks it out of the park with every performance. The house band is fabulous, backing up some really great vocal work. The comedy sketches are original and fresh. Best part is the price. You can't get better entertainment cheaper.

We have seen several shows at Shadowbox. Edgy comedy skits and great music. Good food and drink. 1st timers get special attention.

I went on November 9 and didn't know what to expect. I was captivated! Whether you are an arts aficionado or not, you will find this to be a totally original, unique experience. They take works of art from the Columbus Museum of Art and explain their meanings though original music and dance. This show would make a bundle of... More

We frequent the Shadowbox. The live band, BillWho, rocks it out. The sketches can be of adult nature as can the language, this is not for the closed minded, rather a great time relatively inexpensive and it the best few hours you'll spend with either your special one, or with a group since the tables seat 8. Parking was good,... More
