The show is always a good time but the food is nasty , don't be afraid to season and stop skimping like it come out your check.

Wait staff was friendly and attentive. The lamb wasn’t cooked very well. The broccolini was way too chewy and the veggies in the Mediterranean pasta lacked seasoning and salt. The food was not worth the $150.00 price tag.

The only issue we had was the location of our booth which was to the right close to the bar. Entertainers always had their back to us, blocking our view.

We ordered the burrata mozz and grilled Caesar salad for apps. The burrata was ok. The grilled Caesar was interesting but not great. For entrees, we ordered the tuna (rare) which was good, wings (that were very dry), and two burgers that were both supposed to be cooked medium but were raw in the center. The waitress took the burgers back to cook them to the appropriate temperature but the burgers were just bad at that point. They should have been remade. The waitress was fantastic but the food wasn't good enough for us to go back. We did have dinner here once before on the patio during the summer and it was meh, neither bad nor great which is why we decided to try again. We will not go back.

I reserved a table and requested wheelchair accessibility. The place is small but the staff made it work. I was so grateful, because we were celebrating my sister's 65th birthday.

We were not happy about the music before the show, it was so loud we could not hear each other, but the music was lively and energetic throughout the show.

We ordered food for my mother and the meal was never delivered, so we had to cancel it. And we were never told by the waitress of alternative options on the menu.

The entertainers were AMAZING, beautiful, interactive and talented.

For the most part the staff were amazing and the show was wonderful.

My best friend and I visited for the drag brunch it was so much fun; we loved it so much we immediately said we have to come back but with more friends. Only downside was the shrimp and grits, not my favorite and the portion was too small for it to cost $22. However overall, great experience.

Our server, Sarah, was pleasant and efficient. We ordered an a la carte house salad to share without onions and peppers and she not only got the deletions correct but she had the kitchen split the salad for us before it came to the table. The salad was simple but fresh. I ordered the crab cakes which came with home fried potatoes and asparagus. My husband ordered the special of the evening which was a crab cake and steak with potato purée and asparagus. His potatoes and our asparagus were both fine but the disappointment came with the meats. The rib eye filet was cooked properly (med-rare) but was tough. Our crab cakes were so full of filler, which had the texture and taste of cornmeal, that it would have been impossible to tell that they were crab if we hadn’t known that was what we had ordered. My potatoes were so spicy that I could not eat them. The entrees were extremely overpriced for the quality.

We had an excellent dinner at Croc's. First, as soon as you walked in the music choice was excellent with a Motown/Otis Redding vibe adding to the decor. Every single dish we ordered was delicious, every member of our party cleaned their plates, until there was nothing left, and we each ordered our own desserts. We each left stuffed and talking about the next time we planned to come back. Friendly staff, delicious food, highly recommend.
