Thank you for your feedback about our Gospel Brunch! You are correct, advance ticket purchase is recommended, as this event frequently sells out. Cheers!

Attended a party during a business trip. Nice location with 3 separate spaces. A stage with dance floor and balcony all the way in. the restaurant area and an outdoor patio. Staff were friendly and the sound system was great. Didn't lose my hearing.

Either is good - middle balcony for the view of the stage - back of main floor if you have people with mobility challenges or want to be closer to the food.

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.
