We are a high-end dinner theater...one stop shopping for date night. A $6 million dollar facility built from the ground up to be a dinner theater, we present Broadway musicals and a great meal all in a very luxurious setting.
The Dinner Detective's renowned troupe of talented actors engages audiences with an evening of laughs, intrigue, and suspense as mock murder accompanies a four-course meal where everyone in attendance is a suspect. A dressed-down cast of professional Hollywood- and Chicago-trained sleuths circulates through the crowd, sniffing out phony alibis and asking the hard questions to solve the mystery of each whodunit. Before the night is over, the fictional criminal is cuffed and the most accurately detecting diner takes home a prize package.
The Dinner Detective leases out its gumshoes to clean up crime during private events such as fundraisers, family reunions, or embezzlement hearings. The thespians have sharpened their entertaining chops by performing for such Fortune 500 companies as Universal Studios and Walt Disney Imagineering.
Sprouting from rock 'n' roll roots, Rockabillies fuses the reverberating echoes of classic guitar riffs with handcrafted, half-pound burgers and a menu stocked with comforting eats. Guests inaugurate noshing sessions with sizzling starters such as buffalo chicken rolls—a symphony of grilled chicken, buffalo sauce, and blue cheese crumbles held in tune by crispy spring rolls. Next, dining duos or foursomes set aside air guitars to wrap hands around a Memphis burger, which is served balancing tiers of applewood-smoked bacon and a cloak of sweet barbecue sauce. Burger baristas outfit the cool rider with jalapeños and cream cheese, and crispy fries piled atop the Route 66 encourage groups to melodiously crunch to the beat of their own drum or the drums of on-stage performers.
More than two dozen flat-screen TVs line the walls of Cleatz Sports Bar & Grille, casting a glow across an arsenal of pool tables, poker games, and decadent fare created by the kitchen’s veteran chef. As the wait staff shuffle around deep-fried mushrooms, catfish poboys, and buffalo wings drenched in a spectrum of sauces—from sweet molasses to XXX hot—a DJ spins live tunes before the munching and swaying crowd. On Friday nights, live jazz music replaces the electronic beats, and musicians welcome locals on stage to jam with the band or turn their middle-school diary into a new song. As for every other night of the week, the bar hosts a range of events, such as pool leagues, poker tournaments, and karaoke.
