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 food was good and the selection was also good, but there was a larger walk-in crowd than expected and they ran low/out of food so I couldn't try some of the things I would have liked. The cheesecake was good and my hubby's carrot cake was excellent. The service was amazing. I had no idea what "Murder at Howard... More

I like the Five Star Theatre because Tom Wilkins and his friendly and competent staff produce a wide variety of shows; tribute bands, singers, impersonators including the Beatles, Patsy Cline, Elvis, Mark Twain and others like Christmas parties, election parties... The recent recognition party for those who contributed greatly to Garland County during last year was well done. The excellent... More

Waitstaff was great. Show was great. Food was good. Should have someone seating folks. Our seat was taken and disorganized. Had a name placard but rude people removed it. Guess Arkansas isn't as friendly as we thought.

We came to the show for my mother's 60th birthday and Christmas gathering with all of her kids and grandchildren. This was the 30th anniversary of the show and it was wonderful!
