Stopped in for lunch before meeting friends to watch the playoff games. It took 45 minutes to get our food........ The food was decent but not worth waiting that long. Waitress was a bit of an airhead.More

No. The meal is served during the performance and ticket price includes food. I wouldnt recommend the food anyway, or the venue for that matter.
