We started coming here with our children and now love returning with our grandchildren. Nothing has changed! The ice cream is delicious, the singing wait staff are entertaining and talented, and it's always fun to be asked to sing!

The ice cream was yummy, and the entertainment was great! The wait staff look like they are having just as much fun as the customers. Be aware, this is a cash only ice cream parlor.

Haha! A great experience. Enjoy the ice cream and enjoy the show! Always a good time! The wait staff usually always work for the local theater so they are really talented. It is a fun time, especially for the people who enjoy the theatre.

Show Place is located next to the Surflight, but it's an event in its own right. Sittings usually take about 30-45 minutes. You'll probably have to wait in line if you don't arrive right before a show, but there's a staff member outside and I...More
