We didn't have a reservation but called one hour ahead and they were able to get us in. Great staff and even though it's a buffet the food is made from scratch and lots of items to choose from. The show we saw was really good. The actors were great. The cabaret show afterwards cracked me up. Well worth it.... More

Buffet Dinner was a great value and good selection of foods for all tastes. Play - Comedy "Last of the Redhot Lovers" very well acted, by the entire troupe. Not a bad seat in the intimate theater. Cabaret - just the best, the leader of this group, played piano, told funny jokes, a real professional and his education class on... More

Dinner, show and cabaret for a very affordable price. I get to go to a lot of professional theatre, and while this is a couple of steps off Broadway, it was still very entertaining. Start with a good and generous buffet dinner and finish with a painfully corny and entertaining cabaret. All together, quite a bargain!

Had a wonderful time at the theater in Newport. You sit down and have a wonderful buffet. The food was great and so plentiful. Everyone goes to the play in the same building and after the play you see a cabaret show. The actors and the waiters are doing the performing. Can't say enough about this theater. The only problem...

A few of us girls from CT took a bus trip to the Newport Playhouse around the Christmas holiday. Ladies on the bus would say... wait to you taste the food it's excellent. A buffet is a buffet. The dishes are like platters. So us girls are thinking....yeah right, we will see if they are what they are. Well yes... More

I took my wife, adult daughter, and a family friend there on 10/18/16 for a birthday celebration. The food in the buffet was very appetizing and the variety was excellent. Our server was Katherine and she was friendly and attentive and helped make the experience. The play was funny and entertaining with comfortable seating and at three acts just the... More

We came to visit while we were in town for a conference. After visiting the mansions, our feet needed a rest. Although most customers were older, we enjoyed everything from the buffet, the play, and dessert with the after play cabaret. Everyone laughed and seemed to enjoy themselves as much as we did. We left wishing we lived closer so... More

My wife & I went to Newport RI on a bus trip and attended the 10/17 showing of Last of the Red Hot Lovers. Well, it was the best dinner theater production I think we have seen and we attend a lot of them! It was a dinner show and on this date we all got a Lobsterfest buffet complete... More

Wow I lucked out. Thanks to other reviewers I booked this for October 15, our first trip to RI. And boy was the food great, service was great and the play and cabaret was wonderful too. The only thing I would say could use some improving is the seats for the play is a little cramped but as they have... More
