We went for our 30th Anniversary- They treated us like we were the only people there. Rob Olson took care of us with excellent attention to all details. Great food and drinks. We felt the pricing was great for the package we got. Excellent service and a great performance. We are on the mailing list and hope to get there often.

“A Delightful Experience!”
Reviewed October 6, 2013

I have been at this theatre a lot of times and every time has been a different experience. Last time I was there I saw Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat. The musical was very good, my 9 year old nephew and I really enjoyed it. The food was really good too. I had the famous chicken chanhassen and then my nephew and I shared a chocolate bundt cake with ice cream for dessert. If you like chocolate this will make the perfect dessert for your visit. Our seats were located in the upper level but the view was still good since the theatre is not so big compared to other theatres I have been to. We shared the table with two other people but we didn’t mind because they were very nice. The servers made our experience even more pleasant. They were very friendly and answered all my questions about the menu. I just found out that you can also reserve the theatre to celebrate a special event such as a wedding, a birthday or holiday party. In overall, I had a delightful experience at this theatre, just as I expected. I plan to go back there to see Fiddler on the Roof sometime in November.

“Professional and delightful”
Reviewed September 4, 2013

The show was so polished! We saw Joseph and it was so much fun! The food was absolutely delectable. I had tilapia and it was very generous as were the sides. My daughter in law RAVED about the salmon. I can hardly wait for the next show and a return trip!
