I had an absolute great time celebrating my birthday there. We had a few drinks, and a few appetizers. The music was awesome, the entertainers are great. Be ready to have a great time, and sing along to the music. Will be back again!

I'm so sorry that we missed this question. Hope that you came out and enjoyed a show. Our fare is definitely bar food (sliders, dips, pizza), but we do have hummus & wings that are gluten free
