There were many selections on the buffet and they were tasty. The service was excellent and friendly. The play members served drinks and did clean-up before the play and at intermission. The cast members were very talented.

I have been attending performances at Tobys for many years. The shows are stellar and rarely disappoint. The buffet is efficiently run and of good quality. The salad bar is well stocked, but unfortunately the Caesar is always soggy from being over-dressed. The carving table...More
