Been going for many years. Performances are usually very good and the variety of shows appealing year after year.

“Cool atmosphere, but too pricey for quality meal served”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2012

I took a friend here for her birthday after reading rave reviews online about the live on-stage entertainment. It definitely has a cool cabaret-like vibe and made for a fun evening, but we were both shocked by the price of the meals. Either the food should be better or the prices should be cheaper! We didn't find it to be a good value for the cost.

“Better than I remembered”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2012

I had not been to Philadelphia in a number of years, but very much wanted to see the show then showing at the Walnut St. Theater. I discovered that parking was convenient and reasonably priced, the theater's acoustics were excellent; and the seats, despite needing more leg room, were very comfortable. Getting back on the interstate following the show was straightforward and quick.

“Doubt leaves Doubt”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2012

We saw a wonderful production of Doubt and think Ellen Tobie outdid Meryl Streep in the same role!
