Having dinner at the Magic Castle Club is an experience. The Dress Code is strict ( Coat and tie for men and dresses or suits for women ). Everywhere you went in the building ( more like a maze ) there was some sort of magic being performed. Oh by the way the meal was very nice.

I felt like Fred Flinstone when my steak arrived but it was delicious. Going to such a location you don't really expect to find such a terrific meal. Our party was very happy with all of our meals.

I had this place on my "hit list" for a father-son long weekend. After a lot of research I was left wondering how to score tickets. I did meet a magician from LA who said he could help, but then I discovered my hotel next door could get me in (Magic castle hotel). We went on a Saturday as only... More

A private club so entrance may not be available to all. We were accepted as staying at hotel next door. Old world charm, maintained with dress code. Meal was delicious with lots of entertainment before and after. Would love to have been permitted to take photos to share the magic of the decor. A must for anyone who believes in... More

By far one of the worst places ever! I don't even know where to start. The food is just awful. You would get better quality probably at some chain crappy restaurant like Applebee's or worst except that at those restaurants you'd only spend a fraction and have lower expectations going in. So after we were all disappointed with our gross,... More

If you can get invited make it into this historic building... welcome!!! You are one of the privileged few that have stepped into its halls! My friend is a magician, so he was able to get us in! Souvenir shop is the first room! Make sure to buy things before you leave! Through the hidden door in the book shelves... More

We enjoyed the Sunday shows and brunch. Which is the only day when you can bring kids to the magic castle which is adult only. It's pricey (yet less expensive than the disney princess table) but delicious. Many options from

We were there for dinner and the shows and it was a magical evening. With dinner and drinks for 4 it was well over $500. The staff was amazing and the shows were fun and entertaining. All in all it was worth it but just go in knowing that you definitely pay for the experience of old hollywood.
