We watched a great performance, but the tables were spaced very tightly next to each other. It was very inexpensive, but the format was strictly one hour, no time for encores and felt rushed for that reason.

Wonderful spot to enjoy music and food. Good service, friendly staff, but slow to get drinks, order two if you think you want more than one when ordering.

Since it is cabaret style seating I would imagine they can remove a chair or two to make room for a wheelchair. If you dine in the restaurant before the show you get reserved seating. I would call them directly and ask.
