This was an amazingly talented group of people! I loved every minute of the performance. Food and service is also very good, but the talented actors and musicians for the show made this a wonderful experience!

What a great night!! The food was better than I expected, our waitress couldn’t have been nicer, and you would have thought It was a Broadway production....we saw White Christmas and it was awesome. Will definitely go to this Dinner Theater again.
