Come Blow Your Horn was the show, and it was fantastic. Totally entertaining, and the cast was superb. Arrive early and enjoy a wonderful meal which is included with the ticket price. Ample parking, and easy to get to off east I-295 and Beach Blvd. We went to the matinée show for lunch, and enjoyed a 3 course meal. Service... More

Our foursome visited the Alhambra to celebrate the theaters 50th anniversary. It was an evening of festivities. We went on the opening night so we enjoyed part of the gala opening. There was free champagne toasting the event with most guests dressed up for the occasion. Craig Smith the owner/host was gracious and funny as always in his introductory comments... More

We had a wonderful evening. The show " Smokey Joe's Café" was very entertaining and our food was great. The seats were fine but cramped when there are six at the table. Good value for dinner and a show.

A good friend took me out to see Sister Act this week, I was really excited to see the show and revisit the Alhambra which i hadn't been to in over 20 years. I have to say the interior has been updated since I was last here, no more buffet thank goodness. The space is tight if I am being... More

I regularly visit this Theatre as the value for price is great. They feature many productions throughout the year. You can buy season tickets or just one performance at a time. The food used to be very average but now with the new Chef they are very good. As for the performances - they are excellent and always fun. I... More

My folks go all the time so I bought the xmas show tickets for a bunch of the family to go together. WE HAD A BLAST. The show was great and I was worried about having dinner served while watching a show but the staff has a great handle on how to get the food served without interrupting. I will... More

I attended the opening Smokey Joe's cafe show and consider this one of the best entertaining shows that I have ever been too. I consider this show better or just as good as the Broadway shows of New York. The singers were excellent and I rate them as good as you can get. The food was excellent and the price... More

The Alhambra is a unique dinner theatre. It is older, but so well cared for and quaint. I attended a matinee with my adult daughter for her birthday. There is no bad seat and no bad meal. Food was amazing, performance incredible. Loved it so much, I already booked tickets for the next show.

We visited while on vacation. I attended shows here as a child and wanted to share the experience with my own kids. There are no bad seats in this theatre. My family of six was seated in the farthest section from the stage and we had no issues or major obstruction of views. My only complaint is with the family... More

Well done and worth the price. This theater employs a wide variety of people to work here. Many are college students who serve and star in the play. Very well done and professional. Food includes vegetarian and gluten free choices.

Many of our past and present performers have worked on Broadway, and have done national and international tours. Even our customers have come from as far away as Sweden to see the shows we present.The Alhambra is a symbol of entertainment, history and a place of celebration and friendship. We have helped thousands celebrate anniversaries, birthdays, graduations, reunions and even a few marriage proposals have graced our stage.In a way, this theatre has its own place in history and we are proud to make our customers part of it.
