It is a very unique place with both food and entertainment. We had a private room dedicated to Houdini with antique memorabilia. The buffet was better than expected. The seven and nine year olds loved the magic shows, the food and all the curiosities.

This is by far the best beef wellington I have ever had. If you are a foodie, go to this place. No matter what, dinner is always awesome!

Dining experience was terrible. The food was terrible and expensive. The staff was extremely rude the entire night. Also this place needs to be CLEANED, very dirty.

Membership is needed. Or if you know someone they can get you in. Make your reservations, they are VERY stick on the clothing. NO JEANS & gentlemen need a jacket. Once you know your dining time, you can go see magic shows, there are about...More

I love great food, magic, comedy and a reason to dress up. What's not to like? There are three seatings for dinner and about a 6 wk wait for a table they said, UNLESS you are staying at the hotel next door - in which...More

What an honor to be invited to such a wonderful place! I could have spent hours and hours viewing and listening to stories about the many artifacts in the Magic Castle. The magicians were top notch. While I did not dine in the formal dining...More

Up close and personal magic displays and shows, an incredible culinary experience, the feeling of history, energy and class. This is a must have experience for anyone who loves Magic.

Hi, as far as I know, the only other way to go to the Magic Castle without staying at the hotel is to be invited by a magician who is a member. Also, I believe you must be 21 to enter the castle so i don’t think your son... More

Not cheap. You have to pay an entrance fee (I think it's around $50, there's a minimum for dinner, but figure at least $120 plus 10 drinks at $10 is another $100. So probably at least $250
