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.

I've been to Toby's twice. I have nothing negative to say about the server/performers; they're all courteous and extremely talented. The shows are exciting and very well done. As theatre goes, it's well above average. You get your money's worth with the performances alone. That's good though because the buffet is mediocre. Don't get me wrong, it's not bad, just lackluster. The vegetables are cooked to death, the shrimp are mealy, the meat, while nicely cooked, was underseasoned. It's very good theatre, but it's not a great dinner. Still worth a visit.

Great fun for everyone. A huge buffet and great performances. There isn't a bad seat in the house and the waiters and waitresses are the actors and actresses. It is a fantastic show for families, friends, or even a date night.

The food is okay, but the talent is incredible. We just saw Newsies for my birthday and I took my friend a couple of weeks later to see it again. Loved it!
