Dinner & Into The Woods

My husband and I celebrated our 34 Wedding Anniversary at Tobys. Dinner was plentiful but satisfactory at best. The ice cream was waaay too soft. Our server Beth was pleasant and exceptional. As for the play - it could have ended at intermission. OMG!!! On and on....finally, it is over.

The food wad good and the show wad excellent. All the actors are waiters and everyone in the shoe does something with the meal. It was a phenomenal experience. Highly recommend it.

The last few years have seen a building of momentum. Songs are more polished, scenes are moved more seamlessly. Amazing talent is coming through here.

Food and production were excellent! Surprising because buffet meals for crowds often lose their flavor and/or are bland to begin with.

Let's be honest, the food here was just so-so. They have a fairly decent method to ensure that not everyone slams the buffet at once, but it is not really an all-you-can-eat type experience. If they waited for everyone to fill up, the show would never start. The real experience is the performance, and we were lucky enough to catch... More

Wow, what an awesome night! Good food, good friends enjoying an awesome show. The buffet food was good and plentiful, even offered cheese cake and ice cream for desert. All five of us raved about the food and the performance. The actors did a good job being your servers as well. The story line was very good - Wednesday falling... More

We've been going to Toby's for a long time. We've taken our children to see a variety of shows over the years, but also enjoy an evening out together as a couple once in a while. As season ticket holders we agree that the shows are always excellent. The food (buffet style) is usually the same, just labeled with different... More

This was my first visit but will not be my last. Everyone involved were pleasent and helpful. The actors rocked! Mixing my old memories with some of today's laughs. The music was very enjoyable. The dinner buffet is acceptable but nothing to rave about. Ask for a birthday sign up card. They will send you a ticket for your birthday.... More
