my wife and i have been here several times, usually for special occasions or with out of town guests. dinner is ok, but what you're really there for is the show, which is always entertaining and fun. great for kids, family special events, or anytime you want to do something different.

This is a fun place. We have been to the show many times and enjoyed it every time. We always take our friends that visit us the always like the show. Not only do you have the stage show but the magicians perform at your table and it is really something to experience. The trip to Martinez is worth the... More

Campy, schmaltzy And pure entertainment for all ages. Don't go expecting high end magic acts, go to be entertained by budding magicians. The food was generous and pretty darn good. The ambience is perfect for a small dinner theater with a twist. Good family fun in our own backyard.

We had a Great time at the show, non stop entertainment at the stable and on stage. All magicians are excellent! food is good. only negative is the bar could have a wider variety of drinks, however they have limited cocktails, and wine.

We went to the dinner show on January 17, 2014 as a part of our Ladies' Weekend in the bay area. The food was superb, the entertainment was great fun and we all had a fantastic time! Both my daughter and my daughter-in-law got to be magician's assistants up on stage and they had a blast. I would recommend this... More

Every weekend Gerry Griffin hosts the California Magic Dinner Theatre in Martinez, California. To begin with the food is excellent. Sit down with your family and friends to enjoy a delightful meal. Before the meal and while you are eating strolling magicians come to your table to whet your appetite for the upcoming show on the stage. Gerry is an... More

Our party of six, ranging in age from 9 to 67, absolutely loved the entire evening. We can't say enough good things about the food (we all had their signature beef/chicken meal and fell in love with the butter & herb sauce that is served with it), the personnel, the quaint atmosphere, and of course the degree of magical talent....

We've been to the California Magic Club about a half-dozen times and have enjoyed an excellent evening every time. We intend to return again and again. This intimate venue opens its doors for dinner on Friday and Saturday nights only and reservations / purchase beforehand are a must. Booking at least a week early, especially for Saturdays, is advised -... More

It was an absolute delight to experience Gerry Griffin's special California Magic Dinner Theatre - We just loved it ! It's a gem of a place. You walk inside to a cozy, intimate dinner theatre setting. It's gorgeously decorated with vintage magic posters and photos dating back to the turn of the century (and original props on display from Charles... More
