We are a professional theatre with food and drinks available before each performance (and don't forget the apple crisp at intermission!)

The talent and presentation of the actors/actresses was delightful! We saw a performance of "The Tempest" when we went, and it was super neat! I have never been to a live performance that was so up-close and personal before. Our table was literally about 5-6 feet from the edge of the stage. I had also never seen a production of a Shakespeare play, I've only ever read them. It was awesome and so much better getting to watch it as it was intended, to be played out. So, for the show, it is DEFINITELY worth it.

The dinner was also good, but not "all that". It was different and at a decent price. The Cornish Pasty I think was the best and most exclusive entree- we also tried the King's Supper Sandwich and the Shepard's Pie. The potato salad was bland, but mixed with some ranch dressing was great, the salad was good- not just iceberg lettuce but actual greens, spinach etc. Price is fair. We purchased 3 entrees, no drinks and 1 dessert for a total of $32. It filled us up, but we were not stuffed.

Overall, EXCELLENT experience- very unique, I believe a must-see for ATL. Will definitely be coming back next time I'm in the area. Also, parking is directly across the street in the Emory Hospital garage for $5.

In an environment that may be similar to the Bard's, beer, bawdy women, great facility, wonderful prose, good acting.

This is a fun place - you get "old time" food and beer or wine, sit at tables and watch the actors perform. They've done all of the Shakespearean plays at one time or another, plus Chaucer and some Restoration Comedy.

I recently saw Titus Andronicus at The Shakespeare Tavern. It was an excellent performance and a great opportunity to see this rarely performed Shakespeare play. I look forward to their other upcoming Shakespeare plays, Tempest, Romeo & Juliet, Julius Caesar, etc. Their performances are always professional and accessible, even to those not as familiar with Shakespeare. Plus the setting is a lot of fun.
