Excellent,great food and the show was funny and very interesting.
It was the highlight of my trip to Chicago. The show was great, reasonably priced, and incredibly entertaining. The prime rib was great and my daughter enjoyed the salmon. We had a fabulous time. I'd go again.
The whole experience was absolutely fabulous. I would like to thank the entire group for such wonderful entertainment. A high point in our trip to Chicago!
I am really picky and I thoroughly enjoyed "Tommy Gun's." The owner and cast really did their homework when putting on this show. It is well acted, funny, and engaging from start to finish, and the food is surprisingly good and the portion sizes are large.
We had a fantastic evening. It starts the moment you enter the door. The staff are all in character, dress and mode and are great, and they make the whole 20's experience work. The meal was plentiful and good. There is plenty of laughter, and you might get to join in! They do ask you not to take photographs once the show starts, but there are opportunities to take them at the begining or end. One of the gangsters will take a photo of you or your group in a pose with feather boa and guns and a vintage car which they have in there for $8.00. The evening lasts approximately 3 hours, but it seems longer. All in all, we would recommend that anyone visiting Chicago to go to Tommy Gun's as it was all we expected and more. Great fun theme evening.
I was adamant about how much Tommy Gun's would be worth it, and after viewing the show, I would recommend it as a must see to anyone who visits Chicago! My boyfriend and I attended and dressed accordingly - just made the experience that much more memorable - and we would've gone back again if we had the time. The show was hilarious and filled with wonderful 1920's music and dance. We were thoroughly impressed that the waitresses were also performers, what a task for them! Before the show, during dinner, we were kept entertained as the "owner" of the establishment and a few of the other male performers came around to talk to us - asking our names and where we were from, what we were in Chicago for. It felt like the performers legitimately cared to speak with us. The food was great, nothing upscale but totally satisfying, and the show was knee-knocking hysterical. The audience participation was all too fun to watch! If you're considering this show, my advice is, do it. And guys, don't forget your password!!
Excellent from beginning to end. We had 4 prime rib dinners. Each one excellent. The show was great!
My aunt and I really enjoyed ourselves. I had just moved back from Atlanta, and to be back home in Chicago on some gangster stuff was a BLAST!!! The food was great. I liked the special salad--it had great flavor.
You will not be disappointed. The food was very good and the staff was very professional. Not to mention the Long Island Iced Teas!!
Food was excellent! Liked the characters and how they stayed in character
The cast were all good dancers, some of them could sing and some could do it very well indeed. The setting is nothing fancy but the service was good. Food was average but all in all, it was a real fun evening !
All participants stayed very well in character. Show was great and funny. The food is the reason that the Fifth star is missing. It was not bad, though, but not the primary reason for visiting. The actors are also suffering a bit from the extensive merchandising, which is not their fault. Maybe just an evil necessity.
My husband and I booked a quick weekend getaway in Chicago and took in the dinner show for one of the evenings. The cast look after serving your drinks, dinner and then the entertainment. We enjoyed all aspects of the evening and loved the authentic feel of being in a speak easy. Would recommend this for all.
Show was fun - even our teenagers liked it It really was a great night, staff made us feel at home. Food was OK, but you're really not coming for the food.
The show was fun and the staff/performers were attentive and personable. We had a great time. The only thing that keeps me from 5 stars is that we were the last to get our dinner and had to finish eating in the dark. It was difficult to see our plates and watch the show at the same time. Most everyone else had completed their dinner by the time the show started.
If you go to Chicago and don't see this show, you are missing out on one of the best nights ever. This was absolutely right up at the top of our highlights in Chicago and we have verbally recommended it to anyone who would listen to us. Had so much fun, the food was amazing and the entertainment excellent. The service was unbeatable! Should I be fortunate enough to return to Chicago at sometime in the future, I hope this show is still running!
I enjoyed the evening. The show was entertaining and there was plenty of food but the overall experience was negatively affected by the quality of the cocktail. I honestly didn't feel well after drinking it.
