We had a great time. Food was great and the show was fun. They do make drinks on the strong side (they even mention it on their menu do watch out). Entertainment was really fun. With all the queens doing their performances and the great food we had a good night. Highly recommend.

I don't usually do drag shows, so totally just not my thing, so I like went w/a friend 'cuz she wanted to. We did the early show which turned out great since we actually got to park in the lot as well as got in easily w/o a line. Parking and lines was like a circus for the next show... More

I had such a fun time at my first Lips show. The venue was much smaller than I anticipated which made for an up close and personal experience. My group had reservations for the Sunday Brunch. The show was really fun and entertaining. The food options were good and although the drinks were a little weak and sugary they were... More

This was very entertaining. We laughed a lot and had a great time. If you don't have a sense of humor - don't go there. When we walked inside, the man/lady yelled through microphone: we have more white people coming in! There wasn't offensive to us at all. If you'll look like you don't enjoy it, they see it right...

I would definitely recommend this place for a bachelorette party. Nothing but ladies and men in ladies clothing. The show was hilarious and entertaining! The food was tasty and we enjoyed the evening.

So fun! I would definitely recommend it. They have different shows almost every night. The Queens are super funny and gorge. I loved the host, Cher. Her jokes were hilar. Tips: #1 Go early so u can finish your food. The show started a few mins after I received my so so dish so I was more interested in laughing... More

This place is classic. A bunch of over-the-top drag queens who make you laugh nonstop. If you aren't comfortable with that thought of men in ladies clothing, don't go. They will spot you immediately and then you are in BIG trouble...LOL! The food isn't great, but that's not why you go. Be open minded, and have fun!

I was brought here by a friend who assured me we'd have a good time. Though not exactly my cup of tea (it's a drag show/dinner theater) I totally agree with her after the show.
