As the title says... We've been there twice this year and plan on at least one more time. The entertainment is very good, the service is polished and the food, although Buffett style is surprisingly good quality. You eat at the table that you will be watching the show at. Not a bad seat in the house. You get your... More

My mother and I saw Sister Act here over the weekend and had a wonderful experience. The historic theater is beautifully maintained, the food and drinks were yummy, and the show was AMAZING! We had so much fun and would love to attend another performance at this great venue.

Dinner theatre with buffet and top notch plays. We saw Sister Act witch was brilliant and dazzling costumes, 4 plus hours of entertainment, pre-act and main play. Come rested and do not over eat so you can enjoy the decadent desserts.

Wonderful show and fantastic acting. I love going to Circa 21. It's a great evening out. I don't go for the buffet but the show is always great. Whether I enjoy the buffet varies with the menu but it's always worth it when you consider you're getting a great live theater experience that is very entertaining.

This was our second time to the Circa 21. The first time, we watched the Church Basement Ladies which was hilarious and well done. This time we saw Sheer Madness which was funny, but we didn't like it as much as the CBL. The buffet meal is OK. There are some excellent dishes (chicken) and some mediocre ones. Good service....

Circa is a fun thing to do with or without family. It does need updating though. Most of it looks like it's stuck in the 60s
