Questions

Below are some frequently asked questions by our customers. If your question is not answered here, send us a message on the contact page

  • Q: Can I stay in the same seat for dinner and the music?
    A: Yes! You will keep your seat from the time you sit down to the music ends.
  • Q: What is the difference between tickets and cover?
    A: Ticketed means one show and the ticket reserves a specific seat as in a theater.  Cover means music all night long.   Just make reservations, you’ll be seated as in any restaurant and the cover will be added to your bill.
  • Q: Can I come for dinner and not for the music?
    A: Yes! A La carte dining is available almost every night. You can still hear the music but you are not able to see the musicians. No cover or ticket charge applies.  Please alert the host that you would like dinner only seating.
  • Q: What is the difference between dinner seats and regular seats?
    A: Dinner seats are also called premium dinner seats (PDS), and these seats are closer to the stage.  Tax and gratuity is not included in the PDS amount of $39, and if you would like to include a gratuity for your prepaid meal, you may do so the night of the show.

  • Q: Can I have dinner in any seat, or do I need to purchase a premium dinner seat (PDS) if I want to have dinner during the show?
    A: There is dinner available in any seat and service begins at 5 pm.  The only difference between regular seats and PDS is that PDS have a prepaid amount of $39 per person to apply to the total amount of your dinner bill.  Regular seats have all the same services but there is no pre-pay, so your total amount for dinner is billed at the end of the night.
