We used to go here for dinner and a movie. We enjoy the comfort of the seats and the movies but to day we went for lunch and a movie..OMG they must have raised the prices cause I dont remember a soda costing 5$ and a burger was like 12$ total bill for 2 people 48$ +. That is by... More

We enjoy the Movie Tavern more than AMC Southlands, and the food is better. I like the fact that servers serve throughout the movie if you want. The food however, needs improvement. I had the hamburger sliders and they were dry and served on a dry bun, with nothing else. For the price of $10 you should at least get... More

FAKE "vanilla" shake and 1/2 TEASPOON of avacado in "Cobb" salad. Stop cheating your customers! Shame on you for serving overpriced and malnurishing items. Will not return.

My son was home from college for Christmas so we decided to make it a family outing to see a special showing of "It's A Wonderful Life". First, my wife and I had been here before on date night and fell in love with the theater. This was the first time we ate dinner during the movie however. The oversized... More

Movies are better with drinks. It's a fact. Seats are comfortable and recline. Dinner is really not that great.

Our "go to" theater! decent food and drinks. Also great sound system. You can feel your seat shake! Nice bar area in the front too if you want a cocktail early.

I love that you can reserve your seats online. Also, this is so nice since they remodeled it. The electric recliners are super comfy and the food is decent for a movie theater. You can also have an alcoholic drink. (Beer, wine, mixed drinks etc.) I also like that they have large glasses of free water, so you don't have... More

I always have this opinion that servers at places like this are not as good a servers in restaurants--but today our server was great. He was fast, friendly, and knew the menu like the back of his hand. He was very personable and was laughing and smiling with guests as he took their orders. He was a great server and... More

Unfortunately this is the only local theater and it's easy to eat here. However, with their rising ticket prices as well as rising food costs, it's getting way too expensive to make it a regular habit. They are now charging per person, including babies and toddlers 2 and under, even if they sit on your lap. You can't find a... More

Has gotten to be a super place to go and catch a movie. Good food and comfy seating makes for a good view. I no longer go to AMC now. The shrimp and grits were pretty decent as well
