They have shows nightly but you can get dinner without attending (not sure how it works if you book during the show hours). Their team is phenomenal and so friendly. Great place. Everyone should check it out.

Delicious food, excellent service, great sound and lighting (but I recommend that you eat your food before the music starts or you’ll be eating in the dark!). Both our Caesar salad and roasted lemon chicken were well seasoned and delicious! The service was attentive, polite, and accommodating. Despite the ominous warning on OpenTable, they did not remove our table and chairs when the music started!! We had friends who joined us after dinner with no issues. All in all it was a fabulous evening! A class act!
