Save your money! This place is terrible. I wish I had thought to come here and read the reviews before we went, but I got sucked into going along for a friend's birthday celebration.
I have been to dinner theater, cruise ship entertainment, broadway shows, tony and tina's wedding and everything in between. I can appreciate good talent and a good play whether at a local dinner theater, high school play or by an A list name talent on broadway.
I will say, the actors/singers here have talent. They sing extremely well and should be doing something other than Dinner theater at this place. But a job is a job I guess.
That being said, the show was TERRIBLE. Food was even worse.
We were seated and there was an antipasto plate before every one of us. I don't eat this. In fact I would say 70% of the room didn't touch it. Very odd choice to present for appetizer for a large group with many different tastes. I would have thought they were better to put out a cheese and crackers plate, nachos and salsa- but this antipasto plate was obviously a bad choice and a huge waste of food - dozens of plates just going back.
Next up was buns and butter (good) and beef soup, which was actually pretty good and filling.
We had a choice of chicken, beef (steak), salmon or pasta. I had the steak, but it was not a steak, was more of a thick slice of dense roast beef with gravy, and it was cold. There was a potato 'brick' and some steamed vegetables.
Later on we were brought custard with a half strawberry on top. The custard was gross and fridgey.
Spoilers below: (although trust me not much to spoil).
Now for the 'show' - still trying to figure out this show, as it made no sense at all.
Started with all the actors coming around to the tables to talk to you, feel out who will be the types to bring up on stage, etc...
This is when drinks were being pushed.
Then they start the show adn bring up 4 people from the audience on the stage dressed as a chicken, a box of pasta, a cow and a fish - to represent the food for the night. The only thing that struck me about this was how disgusting and dirty these costumes looked and how they all had wigs or hats, and how many people prior to this had worn these? Lice anyone? Sorry but that was my thought process.
Then we had dinner and the main guy came back on and started the show - basically from what I could gather (although the sound system is so loud it slurs the words of the actors) was some dude had a record store and now CD's were the next big thing and he wanted to preserve the vinyl. The actors did some very disjointed acting about this and I sat and yawned. I would look around and a few people did a token smile or laugh, but not many. Then they would do stupid little skits like a workout routine (where they brought the drunkest guy in the room up on stage to do it with them), a pretend makeout scene, etc.... There was also one where the female actors would rub their breasts in unsuspecting mens faces. Hmmmmm....
I appreciate good comedy and a good laugh - but none of this was funny - it was just stupid. I wanted to leave.
Then a break (and they brought the lovely custard out) and then all the actors came out as themselves (nice to see because the hideous 80s costumes were just bad) and sang 80s songs. They were very talented and very good - I enjoyed this part of the show.
The main guy then pretended to be neil diamond and then had a lady come up and dance with him, then he faked an orgasm on stage. I can take some good sexual humor, but this seemed TOO off color for this show and was awkward to watch - and this poor woman (probably 60-65 yrs) had to have him grabbing her and pretending to orgasm all over her -she looked very uncomfortable and played along, but could tell she wanted nothing to do with it.
At the end of the show they bring you your bill. Now keep in mind you have already paid the $55 each to get in, but they put this back on your bill and then add an 18% gratuity on the 55 plus your drinks. Its highlighted in yellow for your ease of viewing it and paying it. I chose my own gratuity I felt appropriate (our server was good, but between 2 of us not worth a $45 tip) and left that. Also some of the skits in the show are not skits - they are selling tshirts and sing about it, selling overpriced drinks and sing about it - was a big sales show at some points.
Overall - save your money - I could have gone out for this birthday dinner somewhere a LOT better!!! Never again - expensive lesson learned! Hope this review helps some of you save your $$!
