Warm early 1900's decor with eclectic menu. Service and food were both great. You must be the guest of a member to gain entrance to the Castle. There is a strict dress code.

We were fortunate to be a guest of a magician performing at the Magic Castle. It was a super-fun place! The food was top-notch and the atmosphere can't be beat. The service was great and the magic shows were phenomenal!

Having dinner at the Magic Castle Club is an experience. The Dress Code is strict ( Coat and tie for men and dresses or suits for women ). Everywhere you went in the building ( more like a maze ) there was some sort of magic being performed. Oh by the way the meal was very nice.

I felt like Fred Flinstone when my steak arrived but it was delicious. Going to such a location you don't really expect to find such a terrific meal. Our party was very happy with all of our meals.

I had this place on my "hit list" for a father-son long weekend. After a lot of research I was left wondering how to score tickets. I did meet a magician from LA who said he could help, but then I discovered my hotel next door could get me in (Magic castle hotel). We went on a Saturday as only... More

A private club so entrance may not be available to all. We were accepted as staying at hotel next door. Old world charm, maintained with dress code. Meal was delicious with lots of entertainment before and after. Would love to have been permitted to take photos to share the magic of the decor. A must for anyone who believes in... More

By far one of the worst places ever! I don't even know where to start. The food is just awful. You would get better quality probably at some chain crappy restaurant like Applebee's or worst except that at those restaurants you'd only spend a fraction and have lower expectations going in. So after we were all disappointed with our gross,... More

If you can get invited make it into this historic building... welcome!!! You are one of the privileged few that have stepped into its halls! My friend is a magician, so he was able to get us in! Souvenir shop is the first room! Make sure to buy things before you leave! Through the hidden door in the book shelves... More
