Good pre-show drinks and food - this time it wasn't as great as the last, but it might just be what we ordered didn't quite hit the spot.

Our delicious cuisine is a mix of American and international dishes created by our rockin' band of chefs across America. Appetizers to please are the perfect opening act before diving into juicy steaks, tantalizing salads and decadent desserts. Our burgers are even better than scoring a backstage pass. So whether you're in the mood for our tender Applewood Bacon Wrapped Meatloaf or the Shrimp & Grits with its seductive and crispy fried grit cake, there's a little something for every rockstar on this menu. Our menu is bold yet classic and has a contemporary twist that will leave your taste buds singing all the way home. Closed on Mondays, but open on show nights from 4pm-11pm.
