My wire and I went to the Shadowbox Live performance of the Shadow Zone, loosely based on the Twilight Zone. Skits with a guy who impersonated Rod Serling and others. The band was very good and played some old rock and newer songs. All the performers were very good. The food was pretty good and is served before the show... More

I would have given out a five star positive on this but felt that I was pushed into purchasing reserved seats "so that we had a private table". When it was all said and done, I think we could have simply purchased 3 tickets for the show and not spent extra to reserve a table. For the 10:30pm Saturday show,... More

Nine of us went to see The Best of Shadowbox 2016. We had a wonderful time. I recommend getting the theater by 5:30 for a 7:30 show. Make sure at least half of your party is in attendance. Get a seating number and then spend time at the bar before you get your table around 6:15. This venue is great... More

A friend of mine got four free tickets to Front Street Funk at Shadowbox Live. We were all a bit skeptical at first, but it ended up being an amazing night! It was my first time there. It's a great little theater that serves dinner. All of us ordered nachos which were full of deliciousness and amazing toppings. I also... More

I went to Shadowbox live for the first time and had a great experience. This is a restaurant with stage and the audience can enjoy the show having dinner. The band members wished people who were celebrating birthday/ anniversary singing songs and by wishing all. This makes it even a great place to celebrate the occasion with friends and family....

I went to Shadowbox Live for the first time and was pleasantly surprised. I saw best of Shadowbox 2016 and it was hilarious. It is definitely adult humor and I laughed most of the evening. Like reviewers before, it was similar to Saturday Night Live type by having several short comedic skits with live music throughout. The food was pretty,... More

Our friends introduced us to the show for our first time on Friday, and I have to say it was fantastic. The music was fabulous and the skits were hilarious. The food was awesome also. The Friday, 7:30 show, was $30 and they offer a student rate for $25. The Saturday show was a little more. I definately plan on... More

Shadowbox live theater is fun and entertaining. The local talent in Columbus Ohio is phenomenal! This place even has good food and friendly service. The actors and actresses are your servers as well as your entertainers! A really fun, casual, inexpensive time out!!
