    You won't be disappointed at the Pines Dinner Theatre
    We love the Pines Dinner Theatre. There is not a bad seat in the house! The food is excellent! The staff members are very accommodating! We recently went to the Christmas show and was not disappointed. We felt very safe as they are taking the necessary precautions to guard against the COVID-19 virus. We had a very nice night out. The actors and actresses are very professional and the costumes and sets are simple but fabulous. They have a small gift section in the main lobby that I checked out during intermission. I was anticipating expensive items but I was very pleasantly surprised to find very affordable items. Plenty of parking as well.
    Thank you so much for the kind words. We're so glad we could entertain you, and we're tickled to hear how much you enjoyed your visit. We've worked very hard to provide a fun but safe entertainment experience during these challenging times, and we certainly appreciate that you noticed our safety procedures that we have in place. We will pass on your kind words to our performers and staff, and we can't wait to entertain you again in the future!

    Great Evening at Pines!
    Last night a party of four attended Dirty Rotten Scoundrels at the Pines Dinner Theater. Wow! What a delightful evening. Parking is close, level, and abundant. Upon entering we were warmly greeted and told where the bathrooms were located. Knowing it was BYOB we had wine and were offered lovely glasses and cork service without extra cost. No actual tickets were needed since our name and seat selection was in their computer system from time of purchase. Two days prior to the show I received an email reminding me of the event details- extremely professional. After making our food order, service was quick since the show would start in an hour. Three of us started with the French onion soup. It was delicious! We sampled three entrees- pot roast, fettuccine Alfredo, and grilled shrimp skewers. Everyone felt the food was very good. Dessert top choice was the shareable apple crisp. Dessert was served during intermission which was a very nice touch. Wait staff was exceptional. The entire service made you feel like an important quest. Now for the show! It was so entertaining. The cast was well rehearsed and enthusiastic and talented! The intimate small theater really let the audience feel part of the action. I heard lots of laughter from every table. This group of local thespians deserves a huge thank you for their efforts to provide local live theater during these pandemic times. If you are looking for a delightful evening or afternoon while staying close to home, this is it. We had a full dinner but I think you could just get an item of two or nothing to eat if that was your choice. We wish this hard working group good fortune and success!
    Thanks for joining us for "Dirty Rotten Scoundrels." We're so glad to hear how much you enjoyed your visit, and we'll be sure to share your kind words with both our kitchen staff, and also the show cast as well. Thanks again for the kind words, and we can't wait to entertain you again at another show here at the Pines.

    Great value and entertaining show
    We attended the Christmas show with another couple. The food was surprisingly good for a dinner theater. The play was also way above expectations. They have a permanent staff of multitalented actors and musicians who arranged familiar songs into medleys and composed a few songs as well. The songs were well paced so as to never be too long and they were well sung and entertaining. We’ll be back again.
    Thanks for joining us! We appreciate the kind words and also the five star review. We're so glad to hear you enjoyed both dinner and show, and we can't wait to entertain you again in the future!

    Wonderfully, enjoyable evening!
    We have been to many, many of the productions at The Pines Dinner Theater and would highly recommend going there. The food is always tasty and well-prepared. We love that it's a local theater and we don't have to travel far to get there.

    A nice night out
    We have been to the Pines before to celebrate special occasions, but went this ime just because we wanted a nice night out. We were not disappointed. We saw Under the Boardwalk this time and also had dinner. A small menu but they cover most food groups. Good food, great service by the waiters/entertainers and had really enjoyed the show. The only downside is that we find it to be rather chilly temperature-wise. They explained it is because their air system mixes in fresh air and the night we went was cold and damp.
    Thanks for joining us! We're so glad to hear that you enjoyed your visit, and we'll certainly pass on your compliments to our entire staff. We can't wait to entertain you again, and we'll work on making sure the theater is more comfortable when you visit. This time of year, we never know whether to turn on the heat or the air conditioning, and sometimes it's a challenge to keep the building at a temperature that works for everyone. Thanks again for the kind words, and we look forward to having you as our guests again in the future.

    Fun night with a delicious meal
    Last evening was my first visit to The Pines and I am looking forward to going to the the next show! Dirty Rotten Scoundrels was very well performed. The cast had great voices and the show was very comical so I found myself smiling during most of it. Food service was very good and the French Onion Soup was absolutely delicious.
    Thanks for joining us here at the Pines. We're so glad to hear that you enjoyed your first visit so much, and we appreciate the kind words both for the food and the show. We'll let the chef know how much you enjoyed the soup...it's his favorite recipe!

    Great time all the time!
    We have truly enjoyed going to the Pines Dinner Theatre for years. They have a wonderful variety of shows, and the entertainers always do a fantastic job (and have fun doing it). The food has always been top notch, and the variety will appease even the pickiest eaters. The servers are also super-friendly and helpful and go out of their way to make your experience even better. Give the Pines Dinner Theatre a try, and you will be a fan, too.
    Thanks for taking the time to share your most recent experience with us. We're so glad to hear you enjoyed everything, and we're glad you noticed that we have fun entertaining all our guests. We'll be sure to pass on your compliments to our entire team, and we can't wait to entertain you again in the future.

    Delightful and entertaining experience
    We build a quick weekend away around going to Pines Dinner Theatre! The show is always top notch! The food is well prepared and delicious. We like that it’s a smaller theatre so you don’t feel crowded in. It’s always clean and well taken care of. Anytime we are in Allentown - we will be here!

This was our first visit to the Pines Dinner Theatre and we really enjoyed our evening! Upon arrival I was pleasantly surprised to find an off-street parking lot at the Pines. The hostess was very friendly and helpful. We were seated immediately and our server took our drink order shortly thereafter. The menu was interesting and fairly priced. Our entree portions were filling with no leftovers. We both enjoyed our dinners. The show started at 7:30 pm and at the intermission our desserts were served.
The facility is small and intimate. We were able to see the stage easily from our table on the third level. The stage was simple but adequate.
The show we saw was "Why Do Fools Fall in Love" which calls for four female actresses. All of the actresses were very capable and played their parts well.
We plan to return and possibly pick up season tickets!

We took a friend here for her birthday to see "mid-Life 2". It was a great night for all. I was surprised at the talent level of the performers. The vocals were strong and spot-on key and the comic delivery was flawless. The food was good and I especially loved the deserts. They say they are for two but that's debatable. It's BYOB, we did not know and would have grabbed a bottle or two of wine for the table. The staff was attentive and eager to please. Parking was easy (they have their own lot)

Two couples and one single attended the Wedding Singer Friday August 5 for show and meal. We are season members and do not regret it. Great entertainment and food and lots of laughs. Recommend this show. Would go again. And that is even after I was't to hepped up about the Wedding Singer with Adam Sandler. This is better. Positively uplifting.
