“Excellent entertainment and desserts to die for!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2012

Every year for the past several years, my sisters and I take our mom to see the show and enjoy either the luncheon or dinner show. The food is good with several entree choices, but the shows we've seen (usually musical revues) are always excellent and we all just love the miniature dessert buffet. The theater troupe is composed of very talented singers and dancers, the costumes are numerous and the show just a delight. There energy on the stage filters down through the audience. We always leave with smiling faces after a wonderful afternoon of entertainment.

“Great Time; Worth the $”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2012

Meal consists of salad, fruit cup (entree - choice of 4 items with veggies and potato/rice) and all you can eat dessert. Four chose prime rib; one chose the fish -- all were happy. Price is all inclusive--(although tax is included, we tipped extra because our waitress, Kelly, was the best---very hard working and nonstop so I would highly recommend a little extra) . Definitely worth the $ for a show and dinner--don't know where else you could get all this. All you can eat dessert bar was awesome--everything you can think of. Wally's Cafe was funny and the stage set exceeded our expectations. Definitely looking forward to returning and hopefully Kelly will be our waitress again. Don't hesitate, just go. Mostly older crowd, but that didn't matter. Parking is free.

“DInner and a Christmas show at a reasonable price”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2012

This was my third time visiting them for the Christmas show. I am a firm believer of you get what you pay for. With that said, If you don't go expecting "The Radio City Christmas Spectacular" or "Le Cirque" you won't be diasappointed.

If you do go, make sure you get there early so you can be seated for Dinner with enough time, otherwise you will feel rushed though your dinner. Keep in mind the show starts at a certain time and they have to clear everything off in time for the show.

Dinner choices were Prime Rib, Chicken and Salmon. Regular average wedding catering fare. In our table we had mixed reviews. My Prime Rib was dry and tough. My wife's however was tender. A couple of people in my group had Chicken and Salmon and all seem to be pleased. Their home made Bread is great.

Dinner is followed by a Dessert Buffet served in another room which was also descent and then came the Show.

The show is akin to a cruise ship performance. I wasn't too particularly pleased with this years performance but in the past enjoyed them very much. It is a pretty long show
with a 15 Minute intermission, I think close to 2 hours. The bar remained open the whole time.

All in all it is a very nice way to spend an everning during the Holiday season with friends and family
