Hands down, Hot Springs finest performance Theatre. Celebrating 31 years of business in Hot Springs. This beautifully remodeled venue has been transformed into one of Arkansas' only year 'round Dinner Theatres. Strategically located in the heart of historic downtown Hot Springs and adjacent to the visitor center, it is within walking distance of all the major downtown hotels. The theatre features plays though out the year and often brings in Branson music acts between performances. A 5 Star experience venue for a great night of entertainment and dining pleasure. Who has been on our stage? Governor Mike Huckabee, Tony Orlando, Yakov Smirnoff, Linda Davis, Lang Scott, Bill Whyte, Tommie Smothers, Jerry Van Dyke, The Browns, George Dyer, Tony Witt, Sonny Burgess and the Pacers, Todd Oliver and Irving the dog, The Platters and many more.

The dinner buffet was pretty good. The salad makings were fresh and tasty. The vegetables were overcooked. There were several vegetarian dishes from which to choose. The desserts were fair. I appreciated the fresh strawberries as a dessert option. The servers did an excellent job...More

Children are welcome. They do serve wine and beer. It is at an additional charge from the buffet. I think the price was like $40-45 with the food. You can go see the show without eating but the meal is well worth it.
