    I love this place including when there's performers. They are normally locals and there's mostly a $10-$15 cover but it's totally worth it.

    Eat at the restaurant first and they'll let you reserve seats for your show. Even if all you get is appetizers and drinks, you'll still be able to get better seating.

    The Brussels sprouts are such a great starter that we indulged with a second order. Both our meals were delicious [sea bass and lamb loin].

    The place is open seating, so if there for a show make sure to make a reservation for dinner before your show - you get preferred (better) seat selection while at dinner.

    Food was really good but, the service was slow. There was a show going on so I'll give them that but, there were a lot of times I was finished with my water and it was awhile before it got refilled.
