“Great family fun!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2013

We've been here several times for different shows, usually with kids in tow. We all have a great time. You can't beat live Theater. Much more fun than going to the movies!

“Les Miserables - Fantastic Show!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2013

Don't miss Les Miserables at Toby's! Great talent and a well done show. The sets are perfect, the actors are flawless and the story by Victor Hugo lives on! A good buffet to enjoy before the show makes this a worthwhile night. The Baltimore Sun gives the show a fantastic rating and so did the group I was with - do your self a favor and go.

“Absolutely wonderful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2013

I recently attended the matinee performance of "Les Mis" at Toby's. By far there aren't enough superlatives to describe the performance. Absolutely wonderful. I am amazed at how many people come to a matinee that starts serving at 1045 AM, but the place was packed. We had great seats and I am not sure there is a bad one in the place. The staging was clever. I couldn't imagine how they were going to master it on such a small area, but they did including Javier leaping from the bridge - you have to see it! Even though it was a long production the time flew by. The food service ran continuously right to the start of the show. The buffet offered many choices including the wait staff slicing roast beef. I do love the ice cream sunday offerings. If you haven't been in a while this is the show to see!

“Great food, good atmosphere, decent theater”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2013

Toby's Dinner Theater in Columbia serves a buffet of surprisingly good food. The venue itself is well-constructed for a small-troupe theater, with ample free parking. The actual play we watched was OK; neither remarkably good nor bad. Perhaps other shows produced there are more exciting. But the overall evening's experience was definitely positive.

“Local Broadway”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2013

This dinner theater is FAR from typical. It is VERY professional and has won numerous awards for its various productions.The director/creator of this theater is EXTREMELY creative.(She actually got a helicopter into the theater(not that big) for Miss Saigon.) .Great seating since it is a theater in the round and each section is well elevated.
