Don't really know where to start. We went as a show and dine option. The food was awful, terrible, microwaved, tasteless and bland. Can't find any other words to use. It was like a flashback to 1980's school dinners. All the food had been pre-plated, the salad was lifeless. I was looking forward to fish and chips then the menu... More

This restaurant could be very, very good. Service is very professional, the food is tasty, hot and good. The pricing is very competitive. The restaurant is clean and tidy, well laid out, tastefully decorated, so far no complaints BUT absolutely it has no atmosphere. This is such a shame. The menu is a set menu 3 courses for £15 with...

As we had booked for the show at the Winter Gardens, we took advantage of the 'Show& Dine' offer to take the dinner at the Empress. I must start by saying that this is not a restaurant I would have considered if I had been looking for a venue in Blackpool, and I can continue by confiring that it will... More

Decided to come here for dinner prior to seeing Dirty Dancing at the Opera House. We were greeted by the waiter who showed us to our table. As we only had an hour he speedily took our order to ensure we had enough time to enjoy our meal. All the food was really nice. Steak was cooked perfectly. The service... More

Timing and price was right before a show, lovely surrounding and the wine list was was nice. Two of our party had to send back their Salmon as it was cold , other than that the steak was excellent.
