I went this July to see a Midsummer's Night Dream, and then last night to see A Christmas Carol. I have been impressed both times by everything! (The food isn't amazing, but everything else definitely is.) I would highly recommend The Shakespeare's Tavern to anyone looking for an enjoyable dinner theater in Atlanta. I can't wait to go again!

My first visit to the Shakespeare Tavern was nearly ten years ago, and I was impressed then. I took my husband this past Sunday for an afternoon show of A Christmas Carol. As is always the case, the Shakespeare Tavern, volunteers, cooks, and troupe never cease to amaze me. What a fantastic way to get in the holiday spirit: following... More

I love this place! My whole family goes several times a year. You must try the apple crisp! The feel is casual, and it's easy to see the stage from any seating

In Atlanta for a conference so decided to get tickets to the theater. Dinner selections were just enough to make people happy. The atmosphere was fun and the show was very good "Twelfth Night." A couple next to our table got engaged during intermission which made the evening even more eventful. If I am ever in Atlanta again I most... More

If you like theater and good food, why not have them together? My husband and I have been to the Shakespeare Tavern numerous times, and it's always fun. There's something about being in this venue that makes you feel like you're part of the action! Or, maybe it's that the atmosphere makes you feel you're part of a century's-old type... More

My family loves this place. I think we have seen 12 or more plays there and plan on seeing many more. First of all if you can't sit for a 3 hour play - this isn't for you. But if you can, while munching on some teriffic pub grub (and yes alcohol is served), then you need to try this... More

I visited the Tavern as a bonus English Literature class field trip from Middle GA State College in Fall 2012. We watched the showing of Romeo and Juliet while eating dinner at an evening performance. I was thoroughly impressed with the excellent decor and stage settings. The acting was fantastic. The size of the accommodations is large enough for a... More

My husband and I save this for special occasions. We are never disappointed. Plan to get there when the doors open and enjoy a special dinner and drinks. The food is excellent if a bit expensive, but it's worth it. Each show we've been to has been breath-taking. The interpretations are flawless, the staging, lighting, and acting are perfect, and...

I go to see a Christmas Carol every year at this venue. It's awesome! Small performance, very well done. This year I bought tickets for the wrong date. I called and left a message on their answer machine at the box office. I hour later I received an email correcting the date and sending me confirmation for the new date.... More

Having lived in London I have seen a lot of good Shakespeare but I was blown away by the talent and energy of the actors at the Shakespeare Tavern Playhouse. I don't believe I have ever laughed as much at any other Shakespeare performance I have attended! I consider seeing a performance at the Tavern an essential stop on any... More
