Allergies – We take all food allergies extremely seriously. If you or anyone at your table has a food allergy please share that information with your waiter. They will explain our cleaning and preparation process for guests with allergies. If you and your child feels that our process does not meet your needs feel free to bring your own dessert. Your waiter will only charge you our show/ticket fee.
Announcements – At The Music Man you may be asked to sing, dance or shout for your ice cream. As the waiter brings ice cream to your table someone may be instructed to perform for their sundae. Our best advice is to get up and do it quick. FYI Dad’s are the biggest stars when they perform for their children.
Banana Wheels – A banana cut in slices, not long ways for a banana split.
Birthdays – The Music Man is a wonderful place to celebrate special events. If you have a special event such as a birthday to celebrate during a Nightly Cabaret tell your waiter and we will announce it at some point during your seating. Ask for a Birthday Flyer should you want to schedule a private event.
Box Office – You can also see Fudge Factory.
Cabaret – (aka Nightly Cabaret) is what The Music Man is most known. Groups of Customers enter The Music Man at the same time as if they are going on an amusement ride together. Once seated, a performing waiter takes your ice cream order. When your ice cream arrives someone at your table may be asked to “sing, dance or shout” for their ice cream. Once everyone in the entire shoppe is served “Show Time” begins. After the show you are told to “eat up, pay up and get out.” And just like that the ride begins for the next group outside. No ticket is required. (See: When you order a sundae the show is FREE)
Eat up, Pay up & Get Out® –it’s our way of saying the show is over and it’s time to leave. We hear it even works in Grandma’s House!
