Great music and acting. Food is pretty good too. They have specialty drinks for each production. Not seen a bad show yet. Highly recommend. Seating isn't the most comfortable and you might get seated with another party if you are by yourself or just two. Intermissions are a little long but the wait is long at the bathrooms so it balances out. Some shows are not appropriate for children.

Certainly a unique dining experience. The show that I saw was Miracle on 34th Street, and it was pretty good. Some of the singing seemed a little off key, but not too bad. The food was pretty good for buffet style dining, and they had a good variety of dishes. The wait between dining and the show was a little long, but necessary to allow everyone a trip to the buffet and to allow the performers to get ready....oh I didn't mention that many of the people in the wait staff are also in the productions.

Great shows with a great food. Not that many options food wise but the food for the most part is very tasty. The current building is very small and I wouldn't recommend using the restroom if you are a female during intermission. I have seen many of the shows and love getting the collectable glasses from each show. The actors are all very sweet and I've never had a bad experience.

Toby's offers an unique experience and view point. Plenty of food but flavor gets only 3 stars. Salad bar is excellent. The cast are also your servers. I personally prefer the matinee show times. Shows book up fast.
