Must see, great for families

This is a hidden gem. If you have kids, and even if you don't, this is a must see. The blacklight theatre shows are awesome.

I was here with a large group. I personally loved the food(salad, a whole chicken leg[was not wild about but tasteful] and an amazing dessert following the show. The show was pretty funny but I felt it got awkward at some points.

Went there to celebrate my birthday. Meal was delicious, served by the "players". Then we went to see the show. It was fantastic -- beautiful to see. Very enjoyable. Then back to our original tables for dessert and coffee or tea. What a wonderful way to celebrate my birthday. Thanks to my daughter for arranging it.
