We saw Smokey Joe's Cafe here right before it closed. Terrific show. Terrific stage craft. Terrific sound and lighting. Terrific theater all the way around. There's not a bad seat in the house.

Smokey Joe’s Cafe is 90 minutes of pure toe tapping tunes. Even though there’s no story to this show the music and cast make up for it making this show an excellent choice! Would definitely recommend it

Saw the music filled Smokey Joe's Cafe. The performance was good, and the set was creative, but it didn't quite Wow me. Worth seeing and the theatre is good, not one of the big ones. Would give 3 1/2 stars.

Keep your tickets for Row T. Every seat is good. In fact, you may be able to move closer if the house is not full. Ask an usher.

Total of 400 seats so view is good from all angles. We particularly liked the stadium seating for its high backed seats with ample arm room. We were in room M and loved it.
