I have to admit that I'm not a fan of buffets, primarily because I've found that the food is usually predictable and not very good. Eating herd-style with staff urging you to move through the chutes does not stimulate the appetite. That being said, the food was no better or worse than similar buffets. Our waitress was friendly and efficient. The play was well staged, and the actors, except for Nellie, were well cast. Her voice is good, and her song presentations were okay, but her acting needs work. Maybe the director envisioned Nellie as a marionette on speed. At that she excelled as she jerked her way through the performance, never moving below high intensity. We weren't expecting Broadway level performances (even though that's in their name), but the rest of the cast just couldn't carry her to make it the good play it could have been.

We just attended a dinner theatre and show in Fort Myers - well worth the price and great fun. We saw South Pacific and the production was professional, backdrops and stage settings well designed and attractive and food was much better than we had anticipated with a wide variety and selection of items. If you are looking for an evening of entertainment, this is the place. Well located and easy to get to.

We just saw South Pacific and loved it! Everyone had strong, beautiful voices. The food was good. Our waiter, Dee, was very friendly and attentive. Getting there 6:00/6:15 would give plenty of time to enjoy the dinner before the show. Save some dessert for intermission!

We have attended this establishment at least a few times and have never been disappointed by the food, beverages or live productions. This is a unique venue because you can make reservations, while ordering your tickets, to have a buffet style dinner pre-show. These people know what they are doing. Everything is a class act, including the productions. We thoroughly enjoy every visit. There is a decent variety of food and desserts on the buffet and it is replenished often. I would highly recommend this theater. It is really unique and entertaining. Plan ahead, though. The place is usually fully booked with every performance.

This theatre is amazing, simply put. The shows, the food, and the hosts are amazing. The selection of shows, which changes each year, offers some of the best shows this world knows. The food, also changes each show, and is prepared by a chef that reall cooks up amazing ideas. The hosts and servers are pleasent and really care to see you enjoy your evening. They offer just show tickets or combo tickets. The price is what you would expect for the show and food you get,
