Likable plays and entertainment for whole family . Good quality performances. Dinners available before shows Small theatre ..check if reserved seating. Prices are affordable if you exclude dinner. Best to purchase tickets ahead of time.Lights by stage can be hot , so sit appropriately. Must climb stairs to sit in upper rows.

bought dine and show tickets for my wife's birthday. She was appalled at the meal and refused a do=over. The entertainment did not make up for lose of appetite, so we left at the break.

We've been to several shows; some with dinner beforehand. The food at LAB is excellent, the shows varied as to theme but always so good. One was done 'in the round' with the performers in the centre of the theatre and audience on all sides. I'd recommend attending this venue.

We attended a dinner theatre murder mystery. Some of my party enjoyed it more than others. I saw a similar mix in the audience. If you love to get involved, you'll probably enjoy it. If you're uncomfortable speaking up in a crowd, you may find it daunting. Food was OK, but not outstanding.

The Lakeview Arts Barn was the perfect solution to a birthday on a Monday night in Bobcaygeon, Ontario. Thank you so much for hosting a lovely evening! We were without a car, and the LAB is a ways out of town (one of its charms). At a nominal fee (much cheaper and easier than a taxi) they arranged transportation for... More

Thoroughly enjoyed "Long Weekend." The entire audience was laughing right from the opening lines. All the actors were so talented and this story was full of unexpected twists. Highly recommend it - Catch it this week if you can!

Food was great, service was great, Liesa Way's tribute to Dolly Parton was extremely entertaining. Aside: Liesa is an excellent singer and is a great actress. After seeing her tribute to Patsy Cline, we couldn't wait to see her tribute to Dolly Parton. There was only one tiny complaint. We were asked if we wanted coffee at the end of... More
