The food was fantastic and the portions large. The show was very informative, entertaining and well researched. We laughed while we learned. It is an unique dinner theater that I would highly recommend to all fellow history buffs.

This show was an amazing experience! There was humor and some facts that we didn't know about. Got a ton of food too. Very worth it for the price! Definitely recommend.

Their website says vegetarian meals are available with advance notice. Reservations are required, so I assume you would make that request when you make your reservations.
