One of our favorite summer spots. The restaurant has been hit and miss over the years but we have never come to a play here and not loved it. We always choose to buy reserved seating and purchase a dessert in our seats. All other...More

I have been many times over the years, but this summer went to "Young Frankenstein". It was a funny, adult-themed play, done very well by the troupe! The building is historic, charming, and comfortable thanks to the years of upgrades made to the seats and...More

The place is historic and quaint. Food in dining room is excellent but slow and waiter was new, so he made a lot of mistakes and dropped a whole tray of food...luckily for us it was for another table. Theater is local talent and amateurish...More

10 productions in the Summer. Each production is 2 weeks. Dinner across the way is excellent, and reservations are a must. The theater itself is "tired" and I hope the beautiful building will be kept up. Acting is by local adults, students, and semi-professional actors....More

No A/C. The place gets too hot in the summer to be enjoyable. The seats lean to the side. Prices for tickets are to high considering this is amateur theater in an uncomfortable and hot venue.
