I took my 77 year old mom to this dinner show as a surprise. She was escorted (by gentlemen's arm ) into the venue after mentioning the secret code to get in. I had a 1920s outfit for her to change into and she was super excited and psyched for the evening. Tommy Gun's crew did not disappoint. From the costumes, to the accents, to the wise guy jokes, dancing and singing, there was something for everyone. Loved how they bring in the audience to participate, including my mom, Grandma Dynamite, who played a "young vibrant attractive doll". And I didn't mention the food yet.... portions large enough to feed Vinny and his "tree"-3 cousins. My prime rib was cooked to perfection and was juicy and flavorful. The hootch (wine bottle) was reasonably priced as well. All in all this was well worth da dough and a blast. Highly recommended.

We took a large group of high school junior and senior high schoolers! While some of the jokes may cause people with younger children and/or conservative mindset pause, we all enjoyed it!!! I would highly recommend it for a great meal and great entertainment!!

Booked this way in advance and would suggest you do the same as it will sell out. This will be a very fun and entertaining evening so be prepared! On the website it is mentioned that this show involves audience participation, they weren't kidding! The audience participates almost the entire evening. The cast attempt to have a personal interaction with every guest at east once. Some are more lucky and will end up right up on stage and part of the show! Before the show even starts you will be served dinner by the very cast who will be entertaining you. The food is quite good, alcoholic drinks are additional. You should also know that there is no sign out front telling you where to go. In true speakeasy fashion you have to seek this place out ( its not really that difficult) and give your password to "Gloves" the doorman with a menacing Tommy gun in hand! There is also parking available. Bottom line, great entertainment and a lot of fun!

We booked about 1 month in advance. The day of the show we got there around 550pm. The place was almost full. It was nice that they pre-arranged the seating so we got a table right near the stage. Even if we were seated at the back it would have been fine. The place is not that big so it's easy to see the stage. Service was really good. We were eating our appetizers within a few minutes. We ordered the roast beef which was very tender and delicious. Our waitress was Velma. She was great. The people that take your order are also the actors in the show. The show was a lot of fun.
I would definitely recommend.

Had great fun at Tommy Gun's, the whole event was great entertainment for couples, families they catered for all. The only issues was the portion sizes, they did not need to be so big no one around us managed to finish their main. Just cut the portion sizes back a bit, I'm sure no one judges the show on the size of the dinner. The show was excellent and very funny.
