Great show, Great food, and will be back again soon. It was a full house which made it more fun. This is a mainstay of the area, and popular with the locals

We have taken our 4 kids to one play a year (musical) and always had a very enjoyable time. The food is decent, the venue is intimate and the acting is great. Our kids range from 8-16 with boys and girls and all have enjoyed the experience. Highly recommend it.

My husband surprised me with tickets to The Led Zepplin Tribute. It was a rainy Friday evening when we got there! We ordered the sirloin dinner and we both very much enjoyed the meal. The service was excellent! The concert was very good-excellent musicians and vocalist!

The show was amazing. We saw it last time it was done. This was done differently and done very well. The food was great, the steaks were done perfectly. Our wait person was very attentive. All in all a very enjoyable time! We already have tickets for the next show coming!

Haven't been back since 1977 and it is still the same venue! The service was remarkable, our server was awesome. He knew alot of the history of the venue as well and his assistant also did a fabulous job keeping our table cleared and our beverages filled. We saw the production of Beauty and the Beast and it was fabulous!... More

I took a friend to see "Beauty and the Beast" for her birthday because she wanted to go. I have never wanted to go to this theater because it seemed overpriced... why spend the same amount when I could go to the Ordway? I was so surprised by the quality of the experience that I plan to become a regular... More

This was my first time at this venue and loved it. I did not go to a traditional dinner theater show but a concert in a great theater within the complex. Great sight lines and sound. We had dinner before hand at the restaurant which was included in the price we paid. I had an excellent steak dinner cooked to... More

Brought my mother and 8-yr old granddaughter to see "Beauty and the Beast." The production was amazing! My granddaughter was mesmerized by the costumes and set design. The actors were so professional. The food was great. This is worth every penny of the price!
