Your arrival time is assigned: we are staggering arrivals by one half-hour to ensure social distancing in our lobby, which also dictates the timing of meal service. Look for an email from us 2—3 days before your ticket date, in which we will confirm your arrival time.



You can choose one of everything, or customize your plate as you wish – a vegetarian meal can be easily selected from the existing menu.

Please call the Box Office as far in advance as possible 302.475.2313 to discuss whether we can accommodate your dietary restrictions, such as gluten-free, dairy-free and vegan. (NOTE: we do not keep a kosher kitchen.) Same-day calls about menu modifications may or may not be workable – call early!

Our buffet is on hiatus for the time being.  We will continue to serve your meal.  The menu will be posted at your table. You may have everything offered or you may ‘customize’ your plate.  And you are more than welcome to have seconds!
