I used to like going to the theater here, but the last two times I have been underwhelmed. The buffet was average, although the ribs and shrimp were excellent. When we were finally offered coffee, it was served lukewarm. Service, removing used plates, was sketchy....More

Most time that we go to The Candlelight, I'm blown away by the talent. The final show of Crazy For You did not do it for me. Aside from two stand out numbers, I found the show and talent a bit boring. Expected better.

Saw the Winter Holiday show last week. It was great! Some contemporary songs as well as some I have never heard before. As always, the food was excellent, in fact, I don't know how they do it!
