I flew from Houston to see Garrison Keillor - he was wonderful. It took 45-minutes to take my dinner order; 40 minutes later, I was told the chef was out of salmon, so my friends and I did not get dinner. I was served one glass of water with no refills and my chair faced the back of the theatre.... More

Thanks Lynn for your email and review. As we've been discussing via messenger, I'm sorry to hear your experience with us was anything less than excellent. I spoke to our house manager and chef and they acknowledged the error in food service was our fault and caused by a staff input error in our dining software. I can assure you... More

I bought tickets about two weeks ago to see a show at the Admiral Theater. My daughter is sick with stomach flu on the night the tickets are for. I wanted to exchange for the next day's show in hopes she'd be better and have no signs of causing problem for anyone else in the audience. They said the policy... More

We went to see Dr. John. He was drowned out by the bass and drums - the sound man was incompetent. There are good sight lines, but the online map of the venue does not correspond to the location of the seats in the venue. Very frustrating!

I had the pleasure to attend a concert a week ago. I had gone the day before to check it out, see about parking, the drive. I was delighted by what I encountered. The theater was open when I arrived. I was able to look around and spoke with the marketing head. The place is intimate for a theater and... More

My wife and I have attended several shows here. Some are dinner theater, some are movies in this converted motion picture theater. Many well known acts have been here. I once volunteered there, helping people find their seats. High class for such a small town.

This was a great theater, easy to find and park on a Friday. Lots of staff to assist finding seats, which isn't hard since the theater isn't massive. We had front row balcony seats which are in my opinion the best in the whole place. The first floor consisted of tables for those who opted for the dinner menu, which... More

It actually pains me a little to write such a blah review for an iconic theatre, but I feel I have no choice. A small group of us have been going to the New Year's Eve party at the Admiral for a few years and though it is not the most "hip" or "action packed" place to be on New... More

We enjoyed it very much, it's an older, well kept establishment with many types of venues. Sometimes they have dinners included and they have special occasions.
