We love-love this place! It's quaint, charming, cozy, delicious, delightful, and fun. What more could you ask for in an evening? We have also taken grandchildren, and it's perfectly appropriate.

Walls full of fascining posters, a simple and tasty meal, good close-up Magic and bigger tricks on the intimate stage. I love to be fooled and close- up magic is served up before Dinner whetting your appetite for bigger tricks to come. Magicians as young as 16 amaze you with their accomplished sleight of hand. Owner Jerry Griffin makes you... More

What a great evening and very excellent dinner we enjoyed. The magicians at tableside were very entertaining in an intimate atmosphere. Several of our group got to perform on stage and it was a real hoot. The dinner itself was delicious and the dessert was a very nice assortment of mini chocolate covered fruits. Everyone in our group had a... More

Though I'm writing this review a few months after my time there, it is fresh in my mind due to the charming atmosphere, good food, and talented magicians. The experience began from the moment we were cheerfully greeted at the door and led to our table, easily accommodating our group of ten. Two or three magicians well-practiced in sleight-of-hand, card... More

If you want an evening of good old fashioned entertainment, with talented magicians and a three course meal, this is a place you definitely have to go. You are greeted by the owner, Gerry Griffin, at the door and you are escorted to your table which has your name. Throughout the evening, before and during dinner, magicians will entertain and...

It was a night out with friends. We wanted to try something different. This is a small dinner theater. You must find parking on the street or elsewhere. During drinks and dinner young performers ply their trade at your table. It was fun watching these young performers working on their craft. After dinner the main show begins. The illusions are...

End of season for our Bocce team and what a great way to celebrate! Most of us hadn't experienced this place before so it was a huge surprise. From the moment we walked into the small venue, we felt welcome. The magicians travel around the room as we were served our food, just a preview of the real show coming... More
