Donnell Rawlings was hilarious! Food and drinks are decent. Free parking! Wish there was just a little more space between tables so people could get up and go to the restroom without disturbing everyone around them. It's a good venue though. Not really a bad seat. You can always see the whole show from everywhere in the room

Great place to see a show. Great acts appear here. Quirky because it's a dinner theater with no reserved seats so you need to get there early to get a good seat. Even 5pm for a 7:30 show, if you can swing that. Food and beer selection is fine enough, what you'd expect I think. You wouldn't come here just for the meals. If pitchers of beer fit your style, do that, because the servers can be slow and intrusive during the show. And remember to buy a cd or t shirt, that's how the performers get most of their money.

The Birchmere is my favorite venue! Tickets are well priced, and if you’re willing to get there early and stand in line to get a place holder ticket for when the interior doors open, your seats are fantastic. That being said, there truly aren’t any bad seats in the house. You stand in line outside, and the doors open about 2 hours before the show. You go inside to willcall and get a number. This number allows you to enjoy drinks and seating in the “outer area” of the inside of the venue, until it’s time to open the doors to the concert/eating area. You line up according to your number. (It’s all very orderly and gracious.). Once inside the concert area, you are free to pick any seat and the long tables up front, or the smaller 4 seaters on the raised platforms. Your wait staff will come around to take your food and drink orders all through the concert. Both are optional. Please check out the line up. It’s a blast!!

The Birchmere is a great spot for seeing some of your favorite musicians and singers at a very reasonable cost. It is quaint and comfortable setting that allows you to feel upfront and comfortable with the artists. The drinks are plentiful, the food is ok, and the staff are courteous and accommodating. No need to dress up or down, wear your best jean's or your favorite sun dress. High heels are not recommended due to the graveled parking lot- of course that is your call. The restrooms are much to be desired but you can take care of those matters before you go. Have a great time!

First time visiting The Birchmere, I love the intimate environment. Entertainment was great, food & drink was just ok. Nachos don't have enough cheese & rum punch does not have sweetness as I expected. I'm from New Orleans, that explain it.
