Great Entertainment

This makes for a fun evening out. Good food and fun. Waiter/Waitress is part of the show. Don't forget to get dessert during intermission.

My 4-year-old got to go for free as a part of his day care field trips and loved it so much that we bought tickets for the whole family to go see Jingle All the Way. Both my 4-year-old and 6-year-old sons loved it! We ate at QC Pancake House across the street before going (YUM!!!) and then headed over... More

Circa 21 dinner theater is a treat for us and our date nights. We love the theater and purchased season tickets several years in a row now. The bootleggers work hard to make the experience great along with their pre-show. Food is OK it is typical buffet food. The price of our season ticket is well worth the cost.

Saw Ghost in January 2017. Whenever we go or are invited to attend the Circa 21 it has always been a great experience. This musical was fun and they all did a great job in performing it. Meal was a bonus....it was de-lish.

Be sure to go see Ghost before it leaves this theater. The play was excellent, the food was good and the Bootleggers work really hard to put on a good show and serve our dinner as well. Well worth the money!

One of the best dinner and show places around. Actors are so good and they put on the best plays after you eat a great meal. It's truly a great evening out and nobody should miss this if you are from this area or are from out of town. A must!

Just saw the opening of Ghost, the musical from 1990 featuring Patrick Swayze and Demi Moore adapted to the stage. The dinner part of the dinner theater was great, served buffet style. Hard working young attentive staff. Stage performance was excellent.
