It can be a cool date or friends night out. The theater is fun, interesting. The play was good, but the food served is fair. I would return again because of the environment and the plays.

I have been to four productions at the Shakespeare Tavern in the past 6 months. The current production of Midsummer's Night Dream shows the depth of the actors talent in this company. Great food, great service and tremendous entertainment.

I went to see "A Midsummer Nights Dream". The play was hilarious and the actors did an amazing job of keeping us laughing. The food and beer were good and represented a great English pub's menu well. A fun time especially for Shakespeare lovers!
