I have always loved this venue and it was no different this time. We enjoyed the food..great prime rib and an excellent salad bar.

Loved the new menu! The prime rib was superb! The twice baked potatoes and vegetables are a nice addition to the menu! Looking forward to trying the lemon pepper chicken next visit! Charles took excellent care of our group and the show was a hoot! Planning our next visit soon!

Awesome salad bar,fresh vegetables and melt in your mouth prime rib.The waiter was very attentive and the play was comparable to the ones I've seen on Broadway but more up close and personal.Heard it was under new ownership and management and the food has iimproved tremendously.

Went to Chaffins for our anniversary. We have wanted to go for years. Their lobby was confusing since this savour first visit. They should have someone welcoming you at the door. Dinner was a buffet. The food was lukewarm, including the salad. No more than cans dumped in and slightly heated. Extremely disappointed in the meal. I will eat before... More

Very cozy theater with buffet. Enjoyed our anniversary celebration. They recognize those who are celebrating a special occasion. Stage up close. Can see easily.

My husband and I are here now, just finished our buffet meal. Very average, not properly seasoned at all. Bland. Along with us, several other guests are reaching for the salt shaker to improve the taste. No seconds for us, thank you. The theater is about half full. Hhmmm. To note, the service is excellent. Lights are flickering, so the... More

The dinner theater itself is nice with a very good staff and ok food, but the latest play, "Playing Doctor," which my husband and I and some friends saw last Saturday night, was truly awful. It was touted as a comedy, but it wasn't funny. It was a remarkably boring script, loud, stupid, irritating. The actors tried, but they could... More
