The Medieval Feast was delicious. Be prepared to spend your evening and be entertained.
We met friends and didn't know what to expect having never been there before for a feast. This is not a fast dining experience, you're paying to be entertained as well (entertainment is more adult oriented), so as other reviewers have mentioned, there is some time between the courses, but we enjoyed the time with friends. The bread was excellent, the dinner was delicious and you could go up for seconds, so if you weren't full, it was your own fault. Our tickets included a beverage, but you may want to be prepared to purchase extra. If you've done a show/play type of dinner or mystery cruise before, then this is similiar and the seating arrangements are fairly tight. If you truly want a restaurant experience, then go for dinner but not a feast.

Lovely wife & I dined recently in the catacombs dining area, a potentially cool and interesting experience that was ultimately disappointing. A hostess dressed in period costume led us through narrow passages and stairways to the lower dining room. She seemed nice enough, but barely said a word and was unable to answer a single question about the history of the building. Our table and chairs were set on an inclined area of the floor. Understandable that the floor is going to be less than smooth and level given the setting, but it seems the restaurant could have at least leveled out the seating area. We spent our dinner feeling like we were on a ship that was listing to starboard. That's a minor complaint. The bigger one is the lack of value for what turned out to be a very average meal. Our dinner, with 2 appetizers, 2 run of the mill main courses featuring very modest portions, and 3 adult beverages, came to an astounding $146 including the mandatory 18% tip (that's right, a mandatory gratuity for a party of 2!). While we enjoyed the rather average dinner, for that kind of investment we could have had a gourmet meal in an upscale restaurant and gone to a movie to boot. Had been wanting to try this place for a while, but the prices will prevent us from returning.

Got discount tickets for the Medevil Feast at Bube's. Had no idea what to expect. They do not tell you that the characters that roam the place all night give massages, but only if you or someone else pays for it, some people were not prepared by having cash available. I thought the wait between courses was too long, sometimes almost an hour, so our meal took almost 4 hours. The food was okay, no salt or pepper was available. You get a drink with your meal, I chose the Sangria, but it kinda tasted and looked like some kind of watered down punch with not much wine. Was glad I didn't pay full price. The other think was we were in a side room and could not see what was happening in the main area.

Having been to Bube's about 5 years ago and eaten dinner in the Catacombs, we decided to try Bube's for lunch. I wanted to sample some of the various brews on tap and ordered a beer flight which was a sampling of 5 different styles of their beer. The waitress appeared to be new and was not familiar with the menu. This was further evidenced as we observed the bartender instructing the waitress on various duties and menu items. The sandwiches were very good and were extremely pleased with the delicious order of their Bottling Works Fries (generous portion of steak fries coated with garlic and parmesan cheese). These were served plentiful and hot. The beer flight was very enjoyable and a perfect way to sample their various beers without being restricted to just one. A nice leisurely lunch.

My husband and I were glad that we finally were able to try Bube's Brewery, after years of saying we would dine there.

Not sure if we would go back as the food was only so- so, and the service was not good! Also, their own beer was nothing too special and rather expensive.

We did like the atmosphere very much as we sat outside in the Biergarden. The Catacombs area was busy with a special event. Those events sound very fun.

We much more prefer the food and beer and service at Lancaster Brewing Company.
