    An Enjoyable Evening
    Upon recommendation, we attended this dinner theatre . It was sold out the night we went. The set up reminded us of a wedding reception the way the tables were laid out and the service of the meal. At our table, some had the lobster with mussels and salad and others chose the cod with potatoes and vegetables. Both were equally good. Cake was the dessert. The meal came with coffee, tea and water. If you want other drinks, there is a cash bar available. The show was full of laughs and music. Good Newfoundland fun. The performers did a great job showcasing Newfoundland and had everyone clapping and singing along. Be prepared to be there for approximately 4 hours. We felt it was worth the price of $58 per person and thoroughly enjoyed our evening out.

    Entertaining evening with excellent dinner
    The food was excellent especially the cod and the salmon. Service was efficient. Interesting to share a table and make friends with another couple. The staff then put on a show with humour and local music. Altogether an enjoyable and entertaining evening to be highly recommended.

    Fantastic evening!
    My husband and I had a fun evening at the theatre last night. We made sure to drop by the theatre in the afternoon to pay so we could get a table assignment close to the stage. The dinner was very nice, but the highlight is the wonderful show. It lasted 100 minutes with an intermission. About 8 different instruments were played. The songs were historical and important to Newfoundland. So much talent and energy. We were surprised to be the only Americans in the audience. The others at our table were all from the island. We highly recommend an evening at the theatre!!! You will feel immersed in the culture of Newfoundland.

    Great time
    Great night out! Dinner was really good,as out table had both the stuffed chicken and the salmon, plus the staff have the serving process very well organized. The bar is cash only so be prepared for that. The show was excellent, as it was a great mix of songs, stories, and comedy. Everyone involved is very talented in multiple ways, and all seem to enjoy doing it.

    Vb ok early so you don't miss the Twillingate Dinner Theatre
    Excellent lobster dinner followed by a wonderful, energetic, homey style performance. The show had a mix of comedy skits, combined with beautifully sung traditional Newfoundland songs. Worth every penny ,

    A very nice dinner and night of entertainment.
    The lobster dinner was excellent and the show was very good. It was a little hard to understand some of punch lines, partly because of the sound system and the Newfie accent but the fun and laughter they had on stage spilled into the audience. It was a nice evening.

    Fun night out
    Great food. Cod was awesome. So fresh. Would like if they replenished water and let us know bar was closing for the show. I was so thirsty until the intermission when the bar opened again. Show was fun. A bit corny skits but made me laugh. Music was great.

    Wonderful Show and food!
    What a wonderful evening in Twillingate! We all got the lobster dinner and it was absolutely delicious. All the servers were so kind and charming (and some of them were in the show!) The show was so much fun! The music was incredible, everybody on the stage had so much talent and they sounded amazing. And the sketches were fun, too! I feel like I learned a lot about Newfoundland culture and in a humorous way. Twillingate is also the only place in Newfoundland we saw icebergs! So I would highly recommend spending a day here to enjoy the views and the people.

    A Night to Remember
    Just the night we were looking for....excellent seafood dinner, chicken for me, lively music and crowd interaction. Bonus was meeting coworkers from our Ontario hometown who just happened to be there as well. Kudos go to waiting staff, especially the twins. Excellent job ladies. Overall, a terrific Newfoundland experience.

    Not to be missed!
    Our party of four had a great time and the food was excellent. Three of us had lobster and one of us had the cod. The cod was the best my husband had in all of Newfoundland (and that says a lot!), and the rest of us throughly enjoyed the lobster! The entertainment provided exactly what we were looking for - a taste of Newfoundland - its music, humour, language and more. Who knew one man could play so many instruments! Not to be missed!

A great meal and entertainment. This is a must do if visiting Twillingate between May & September. Serving staff are also the performers and they were perfect at both tasks. The fact they also fund raise to support less fortunate shows there community spirit and compassion that comes out in their skits and music.

Experienced the delightful dinner theatre just last week. The food was tasty and generously portioned. The entertainment was very good and the pride of the Newfoundlander culture shined through. I would recommend to anyone visiting the province. Cheers from Ontario/Croatia

Individually the musicians were all very talented.
Somehow the show just didn’t click, no laughs I guess.
The one in Rocky harbour was many times more entertaining with equally talented musicians.
Sorry but that the facts.

Great meal, they are serving a large number of fried cod but it was hot, not overcooked and large. Delicious. The show is a true Newfoundland party with lots of good, well played/sung Newfoundland music interspersed with a number of corny but good skits. Congratulations to all concerned with providing a great night’s entertainment.

What a wonderful time we had!!! Was amazed how quickly that everyone was fed the delicious meal! And then extra surprised that some of our waiters were also performing in the show! Talented musicians and singers who not only entertained with music but fun skits as well!!! Dedicated to their fundraising efforts, these folks do this 6 days a week during the season! We were humbled by their talent and dedication. Will be a fond memory of our trip to “the Rock”!!!

We had a very good night there. We love dinner theaters and this is a good one from start to finish. Felt welcome from the moment we walked in the door. The food, music and tales were so good. They support a wonderful cause that you will want to endorse and do consider buying one of their CDs.

Freaking amazing! We got the stuffed chicken and couldn’t finish it. Huge!

As for the entertainment….I think my cheeks and hands still hurt from the laughter and clapping. I’m not sure I’ve ever had so much fun!

I cannot WAIT to bring my husband back next time. There will definitely be a next time!
