It can be a cool date or friends night out. The theater is fun, interesting. The play was good, but the food served is fair. I would return again because of the environment and the plays.

After many years of regular visits to Atlanta, we finally got to the Shakespeare Tavern. And what a wonderful evening we had. Amazingly, this company produces plays all year long with only a one week break between Christmas and the New Year. Most productions appear...More

I have been to four productions at the Shakespeare Tavern in the past 6 months. The current production of Midsummer's Night Dream shows the depth of the actors talent in this company. Great food, great service and tremendous entertainment.

This place sucks. It’s supposed to be a nice dinner with a play, and the play was ok, but the dinner was horrible. You can get better food at a QT for one third of the price. I ordered the supper king pork sandwich and...More

I went to see "A Midsummer Nights Dream". The play was hilarious and the actors did an amazing job of keeping us laughing. The food and beer were good and represented a great English pub's menu well. A fun time especially for Shakespeare lovers!
