We have gone several times to see tribute bands or celebrities for dinner and entertainment. The prices are very reasonable, especially if you sign up for e-mail special offers. The food is buffet style and surprisingly good and plentiful for the price!

Very exciting to see Melissa Etheridge in such a close and intimate setting! I loved the availability of the multiple bars within the venue, so you could get a drink without missing any of the show. Acoustics were not great though. While the music was...More

The menu has changed and all food is ordered at the table unless you are seated in an area that does not have wait staff. I would ask when being seated about service at your table. Even though they should tell you.
