We attended the performance of the Kingsmen, after a delicious Endless Buffet dinner, (would recommend the buffet to anyone) along with our twin grandsons. We all enjoyed the evening.

We enjoyed seeing Ryan and Friends. Ryan is a talented ventriloquist who keeps his shows family friendly, and is very funny! He doesn't use any foul language and I appreciate that!

Booked several weeks in advance and they messed my reservation up. We didn't find out until we arrived. The bed was extremely hard had a terrible time sleeping. The lady at the front desk was not friendly. Jack Knox Indiana

We chose a venue 20 minutes from home. Why not? People come from far away by the bus load. We have this resource nearby. The food at the Bluegate was predictable and tasty. The show Ryan and Friends was hilarious. We enjoyed our stay at the Garden Inn(had been to the water park years ago). Our celebration of Valentines Day... More

Your buffet and waitress were excellent as always. The show was outstanding and we enjoyed it very much. It was well worth it. We brought my Aunt and Uncle, 88 & 89 years, and I never have seen them laugh so much. Thanks again. Larry

A wonderful, fun filled afternoon at his show. His homespun humor was made for laughter, which we did a lot! Once again the buffet in the Garden Room was delicious.
