Great value, and great fun. Our first visit, and will not be our last!! The play was good and the buffet was great. The cast is very talented. One of the cast members provides music in a pre-show setting. Good singer with all the oldies. Could be in a musical. The play ("love, lies, & the Doctor's Dilemma") was a... More

I am a Tour Operator and visited Early Bird Dinner Theater earlier this year with a Motorcoach group of Older Adults. Susan Lyons the owner was so easy going and wonderful to work with. The staff was super welcoming and friendly as we arrived and got seated. There was plenty of hot food available, great variety. The show was a... More

My husband and I have been to the Early Bird Dinner Theatre many times and have never been disappointed. They produce their shows in a wonderful venue which has ample seating and parking. The food is top quality, the pre-show music is excellent, and the comedies they choose are well directed with talented cast members. The price is absolutely one... More

Have attended three plays here -- all belly-laughing comedies! But, you have to like eating dinner early. Salads start at 4 pm, then entrees, and delicious deserts. Waiters and waitresses stroll around to keep your coffee, tea, or water filled. Main meals usually include both veggies and meats, plus carving meat too! Highly recommend.

A group of us went to the 11am show with buffet dinner. We started out with a fresh salad bar with a wide variety of toppings. I was disappointed the lettuce was iceberg. The hot buffet had a delicious vegetable medley, real mashed potatoes, wild rice mixed with white, meat balls, ham, herb roasted chicken, roast beef the way you... More

We went about a month ago and thoroughly enjoyed it. The dinner was great, salad table great, entertainment during dinner was great!! The play was funny and the actors were wonderful. Only complaint...They put the desserts out when they put out the salads. Evidently, people who have gone there before got their dessert then. When we went up for dessert,... More

Second trip. Last trip. Read the other reviews. Thought last visit an off night for food. Not! Must be the norm. Fill up on salad, potato salad & Mac salad and rolls. The buffet dinner is bland & lacking in quality and TASTE! Desserts are tiny bit ok since no one on our table liked theirs. For folks who don't... More

You can't go wrong for the price. You have entertainment before and with dinner that consists of a nice salad bar (your drinks are served - tea hot or iced, coffee, water, or something from the bar) and after your salad you are in for some nice entrees. Entrees on the buffet include Virginia Baked Ham or pork entree, Carved... More

Good shows, good food, but you must call to make a reservation as well as to get specific information about dates & times. It would be better to have this available online.
