We were there on opening night with friends. The show might be a bit short on plot, but the cast was really deep with talent. All of these women can sing. Like really sing. And dance. And several of them played instruments too. The audience had a great time, and was clapping along when they switched over to country. Really fun. Catchy songs and lots of them. Yes, it looked like staffing issues at the restaurant and bar held up the start of the show that first night, but nobody seemed to care (except the reviewer, maybe)!

I TOTALLY disagree. We went Saturday evening dined in the restaurant and saw the show. Cowgirls was light, entertaining and FUN. We had a great meal and exited the evening smiling. Maybe opening night for the theatre and restaurant was ambitious, but Saturday night was delightful.

We were there also on Friday night. After waiting close to an hour for our dinners, they came out cold and very dry, from sitting far too long. The walleye portions were small, with about 6 green beans to accompany them. Many in our group were left the table still hungry. After the dinner disappointment, we had a hard time loosening up to enjoy the show, but by intermission, we were thoroughly enjoying the singing talents of the girls. I sincerely hope the owners learned a hard lesson about overextending on opening night. There was no excuse for the terrible dinner experience.
