This place used to be really good. Food used to be great. Now it's just undercooked/overcooked chicken items that you won't see until you flash your phone light on it and cold fries. Abysmal service. You get your appetizers with your main entrées. Don't think Movie Tavern is busy at nights...it's not. The business next door(ITZ) is what's keep their... More

I'll start with the positive. Movie ticket prices are very affordable (compared to AMC or Silverado) and the chairs are very comfortable with plenty of sitting space. You're not a sardine like in other theaters. The negative is that the food has really gone down hill! They have revised the menu several times over the years that I have patronized... More

Eat before you get there. The food is gross and we've had one of our kids get sick from it. We don't like the concept of eating in the dark while the waiters are constantly moving through the theater. We've tried it out a few times, but it's just not for us.

We never tried this before and I thought we would try it today. The food was disappointing but the service was great. We also discovered that we don't like eating in the dark.

Movie was good but that was it! Terrible I mean really terrible food! The chicken chipotle sliders were the worst food I have ever eaten! We asked the server if we ordered apps and dinner at the same time ( our 1rst time there) and she said we could and she would make sure there was time between apps and... More

Visited here for my husband's birthday. The movie was good and the servers were polite. Unfortunately, some of the food that was supposed to be hot, was still cold (sausage). But the spinach dip was delicious!

We have been many times to this theater and find it nice. Food is good and service is good as well. Restroom is kinda messy. Staff turnover seems high. They tend to be a little ignorant of the fact you are watching a movie to get bills paid. Again comfortable and consistent

This is the second time I had a party for my daughter here and she loved it. I like the fact that it's smaller and easier to manage a small party of young girls. The service was excellent, outside of the theater and inside. They had a contest and my girls won a movie poster. The screen is big, I... More

Loved the dine in and watch a movie experience! Would definitely go again. Server was friendly and they respected the movie and other patrons.
