The Early Bird Dinner Theater is a family run business serving the greater Tampa Bay area for over 25 years. During that time we have become one of the most popular attractions in the Tampa Bay area. Our founder, Ed Fletcher, believed in providing first class entertainment and dining for a reasonable price. Our shows are always funny and entertaining performed by professional actors with years of experience. Our food is provided by Banquet Masters, an onsite, chef owned, full service catering company that has also been in business for over 25 years.
Your meal starts with a fresh salad bar with many different seasonal choices. Then it’s on to our hot buffet. Entrees on our buffet include Virginia Baked Ham or pork entree, Carved Top Round Roast Beef with Au Jus and Horseradish, Salmon Almondine, Seasonal Chicken Entree, and Meatballs in Marinara Sauce or Baked Ziti. Rounding out the menu we have our sides selections which include Seasonal Rice, Mashed Potatoes, and Vegetables. After dinner, our skilled and courteous wait staff will bring you dessert and coffee as you prepare for the show.
Show times include Thursday matinee, Thursday evening (Jan-March only, with the exception of Thanksgiving Day), Friday evening, Saturday matinee, Saturday evening, and Sunday evening. Seating for the matinees at 11 am and for the evening shows at 4 pm. Specific shows may vary. Please make sure to call for availability.
The Early Bird Dinner Theater is no longer BYOB, however, we invite you to visit Gatsby’s, a beautiful, full service bar in our lobby. Gatsby’s has a complete selection of premium and top shelf liquor with very reasonably priced bottles of wine. Feel free to order your drinks yourself or to have a member of our excellent wait staff bring it to your table for you.
We look forward to seeing you soon and providing you with an unique, fun, and exciting entertainment and dining experience that you and your friends will want to repeat over and over again. Call (727)446-5898 for reservations.
