4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2012

What a comical night out celebrating our friends birthday!entertainment great but as far as the food, not so much.Especially for the price quite expensive and the food as cold.
Other than that these guys are a hoot! The fist act comes out and turns around and you would swear it was Cher
And Vulgar these guys re FUnny

“Entertainment & Drinks”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2012

This place is a fun entertaining club/restaurant. We only had drinks and watch the show.. I can't say anything about the food since I didn't order anything.. But from the looks of other people, food is good..

“Show good, food questionable”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2012

I went there for a friend's bachelorette party. They have a $8.00 cover and $15.00 food minimum (only food, does not include your drink) per person. I had the house special 15 oz blended drink and it was bad. Three of us at the table ordered the drink and the consensus was that it was bad so stay away from it. The food was over priced and questionable too. I think some of my friends had good tasting dishes, but very over priced. Expect to spend at least $40-60 per person, if not more when you attend.
The show was enjoyable and cheeky. Honestly because of the cost and value, I would not go back.

“Lips Restaurant”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 23, 2011

Just like a club, you'd hate to see what the place looks like with the lights on. The food is decent, the entertainment over the top. Definitely not a place for the shy...well, maybe only AFTER a few drinks. Be prepared for a night of fun and laughter with some beautifully made-up queens.
