This was exactly what I was expecting and SO much more! I haven't laughed that hard in a very long time. The venue is great, the staff/actors/cast are top notch! Live entertainment doesn't get better than this :)

This was one of the worst evenings we have ever experienced. The show was not clever or funny. The actors were worse than amateur. There was no plot and it dragged on and on. We left at dessert time but should have gone earlier. Dinner was awful...continued

Unfortunately, this was a very amateurish production. The actors were having more fun among themselves than the audience was. We paid for them to entertain each other! Thank goodness we paid the Goldstar rate! I took a friend from out of town...continued

We enjoyed many things about it. . The game in the beginning to get people to converse with one another at the table. . The food was delicious. . and of course, the cast (servers) were very fun & personable. . It was a great time!

We thought the play presentation for hysterical. It's hard to find something that my family (all adults) enjoy, but this was one of them. My daughter-in-law was even part of it. Prior to friday night, I had never seen her embarassed. Boy was...continued

A delightful show in which the actors are also the very funny wait staff. I'd recommend this dinner show for a fun night out with friends or a special occasion.

All guests were assigned table seating prior to the event. We were greeted and seated by the actors already dressed in their costumes. While waiting for the show to begin, each table of 8 was given a trivia game to play as an ice breaker. The...continued

Although the food is nothing to talk about, the show is very funny and entertaining. They use audience participation a lot as well. And valet parking is only $5.

Based on the reviews I had read I went into this with a very open mind and truly expecting the worst. To my surprise it was quite enjoyable. We all had a really good time and a good laugh. The food was not that great, but we did get a lot so by...continued

Easy to find IHR. Parked in lot across street for $5. Drink prices were usual but the dark beer was bad. The venue was adequate to see and hear the whole presentation. Seating was round table for 8. Food and service was very good. It was a...continued

Funny show, the actors utilized the space well, the service was great, the food was cold, but it had potential. Recommend going with a group. Round tables seat 7 or 8 people. Arrive at least 30 min prior to show to get good seats.

Great energy ...some good acting and the players were clearly having a good time which was infectious ! The writing was a bit uneven and the 'story' a bit difficult to follow ...but the show was fun for sure !

I took my two granddaughters who are self proclaimed "theatre geeks." They absolutely loved it. Best outing we ever had!

I was a little apprehensive to go after reading some terrible reviews online about the food and the whole experience being terrible. I was trying to find something different to do with my friends for my birthday, and this was fairly fun. The food...continued

If you are in the mood to have a fun night watching an entertaining skit then check it out. The entertainment was good, the food was not so much, but like I said if your in it to just enjoy yourself then I'd give it a chance.

My husband and I had very fun night! We were totally wrong about who did it! The food was better than I had expected, usually over cooked! Not this time.
