“Food tasted a little funny too :-\”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

The comedians are funny and the room is cozy with every seat being close to the stage. However, they tell you to be there 90 minutes before showtime so that you're forced to order food and drinks while you wait. That's not the problem - the problem is that the food is horrible tasting, much of it comes out room temperature, and everything is over salted, requiring you to order more to drink to get rid of the aftertaste. Everyone we talked to around us complained of the same bad food experience, many of whom have been their several times and were hoping for better.

If you eat elsewhere and the show sells out they will seat you individually - you bought seats, not a table - so if you eat at Gordon Biersch and then show up at 7:15 for a 7:30 show, you and your date might be given separate seats across the room from each other.

Hopefully this business model is changed soon. They got us once, but if it happens a second time then we'll stick with that OTHER comedy club downtown on Salina Street.

“Better be a Good show or not worth the time....”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2013

Went to show tonight, saw Tommy Davidson. The show was very good, the dinner part was BAD! Brought our food after 1plus hours of waiting, they brought the wrong food, because the waitress and waiter couldn't see in the dark what they were giving us. It is so dark in there you don't know what your getting. Couldn't get more drinks, had NO silver to eat with, had to wait for waitress to come back to finally eat. On top of that they don't have to give you good service because they add 18%, so they get a tip either way. Over all go for the show, Eat before or after someplace else, unless you want to take a shot in the dark at what your eating......

“Look carefully at your bar bill - tip is automatically included!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2013

Nice comedy club in Destiny. Up on third floor of the new expansion - right by Dick's Sporting Goods. Lots of seating. Pleasant wait staff but make sure you look closely at the bill -- a 18% gratuity is ALREADY added.
