Descent Food Prices but Place Needs Renovation

The movie quality was acceptable. The sound system wasn't all that impressive. The concessionary servers were friendly and done well. The quality of food was good and the prices were decent. The chairs were old and the patting on them were thin and sitting for the 90 minutes to eat and watching... read more

The movie was good. Constant flow of employees during movie is annoying despite the fact that it is a dinner theater. Management is on a serious power trip as mentioned in a comment a few reviews below mine. The mall theater has much better service and management!

I love this place! The theater is very comfortable and the fact that while watching the movie you can order from their extensive list of draft beers and cocktails, and munchies, too, is just excellent. The prices on everything seem quite reasonable as well. I don't live near this place and wish we had an Alamo Drafthouse Cinema available because... More

The alamo drafthouse deserves a 5 on this visit. During a recent snow storm we were staying at a nearby hotel. Literally every restaurant was closed due to weather, but the hotel recommended the Alamo. There were 7 of us. Our waiter was very attentive, even though they were short ataffed from the weather. The pizza was great ! Scratch... More

I have now been there over a dozen times. Two times we were turned back because they were sold out. BOTH times I called before and they never answered the phone. It goes to voice mail and they do not call back. That sucks as I had to drive an hour each way with my 96 year old Father. "Fury"... More

The 4-star rating reflects the overall experience, though the food is just average. We enjoy Alamo because of the "package" - dinner and a movie all at the same time. Some of the seats are bit worn, but fairly comfortable. The food is good (but not necessarily great), and service is good. As others have said, it is a bit... More

My friend and I saw "The Judge" and shared nachos with cheese. We had great seats, and could see well and hear well. We were comfortable with the temperature, and the theatre was clean and nice. The service was good, and the people around us were quiet during the movie, which always makes it more pleasant to be at the... More

Hey, you get meals while watching a movie. Have to learn which food selections are good and which are just siphoning money from your wallet. Sometimes there are seasonal deals for certain dishes to be half off. Bottom line, expect a single movie viewing to cost you at least $30+ dollars. That adds up quick if you love going to... More

We saw a movie and had a good meal. My husband's only complaint was that we got the food after the movie started and he couldn't see what he was eating :)
