Do you take reservations?

We do not take reservations but will do our best to seat every party in a timely manner.

Are people under 21 allowed in?  At what times?

Toby’s is a family-friendly restaurant and everyone is welcome in the dining room to eat.  On weekend nights we turn into a 21+ “bar” at 9:00pm.   People under 21 who are eating in the dining room may finish their meals after 9:00pm but may not hang out or sit at the bar area.   Security reserves the right to ID anyone at anytime regardless if drinking is involved or not.  Patrons under 21 may be asked to leave after 9:00pm.

I want to go to a National concert at Toby’s but I’m under 21, is this ok?

National Acts can be identified by being listed in RED on our calendar.  These are some of the bigger names you may have heard on the radio and are associated with being able to order tickets online before the day of the performance.  We do allow all ages at these shows regardless of how late in the night they perform until.  Under aged patrons are identified with a large “X” marked on their hands during admission.  Furthermore, over 21 guests get a “over 21″ wristband to further deter underage consumption.  Please note: under aged patrons who attempt to wash off this marking will be immediately escorted out of the building, may not return to the night’s show and will not receive a refund for tickets purchased.

We want to come to Toby’s on a random weekend to see live music (a local band), what can we expect?

The dinner crowd turns into more of a “nightlife” crowd around 8:00.  The music gets a little louder and the atmosphere slowly turns into a weekend crowd, people letting their hair down and getting a little more rowdy than the weekday crowd.    Fridays often have free acoustic music during happy hour then transitions into a full live band which hits the stage around 8:00 or 9:00 depending on the crowd size.  The restaurant is usually fairly busy on a weekend night, there may be the occasional spilled drink or person accidentally bumping into you but the crowd is always respectful of others.  Our huge dance floor offers plenty of room for dancing, however with large national concerts the dance floor is too full to allow for dancing as the crowd amasses as close to the stage as possible for the best view of the band.

There is a $10 cover charge on Friday and Saturday starting at 8:30.

We want to visit on a night with a national act playing but would like to get there early and eat dinner, do we still need to buy a ticket?

Yes, people are welcome to eat dinner early on the night of a major concert, however security will sweep the venue before the concert starts and will ask for your pre-bought tickets.  If you did not buy tickets online prior to the performance, you can purchase them through the security staff at this time.  Note: sold out shows may not have this option and in certain cases guests will not be able to stay without a pre-sold ticket.

 Why a cover charge?  I’ve heard the song!

We polled our guests early on as the Toby Keith’s brand started growing bigger and bigger, the results were unanimous – people were ok with a small charge and top-notch entertainment as opposed to no charge and having to listen to an average band and an average entertainment experience.   Toby’s brings the highest level of live entertainment in the entire valley and unfortunately it ain’t cheap!  You’ll have an experience you won’t forget at Toby’s which will be worth way more than the nominal fee at the door.  There is a $10 cover charge on Friday and Saturday nights starting at 8:30.  Anyone who gets in before 8:30 is free with the exception of nights with national ticketed events.

Wow, that’s a lot to pay for a beer…

You may have heard about the “expensive” drink prices at Toby’s which deserves a little explanation.  Sticking to the “beer in mason jars” theme made famous from the song, Toby’s does offer this very large beer option.  Prices vary depending on if it’s an import beer or domestic but a mason jar offers the equivalent of two normal beers.   If you prefer a glass of draft beer instead of the mason jar, we are priced right in line with every other bar in the area.  So when you hear “$7 for a beer, wow that’s expensive!” keep in mind that’s for TWO beers in one jar.

 We have a large group event we’d like to have at Toby’s, can you accommodate us?

Of course!  We have a VIP area which is available for rent.  More info on them and contact info for booking can be found here.

Where can I buy concert tickets and which shows require them?  Do I have to buy tickets before the day of show?

Our ticket purchase link can be found here.  All shows on the concert calendar  in RED have the option to buy a ticket in advance.  In most cases the online tickets in advance are cheaper than they are the day of show.  When buying tickets online, there is a small service fee.  There is the option to “share” your ticket purchase with friends through Twitter and Facebook that if taken advantage of, can greatly reduce your service fees to a dollar or two per ticket.  Day of show ticket increases are usually $5 per ticket so we highly recommend purchasing your tickets in advance.  Shows on our calendar of events that are in blue do not have the option of online purchase and can be bought at the door when you arrive.

It won’t let me purchase tickets online, is the show sold out?

Not necessarily.   Ticket sales are usually cut off the day before the event around midnight so if you’re trying to buy your tickets online on the day of show, you won’t be able to.  In the majority of cases the show is not sold out and tickets will still be available at the door.  There may possibly however be an increase in the ticket price the day of show.  More info can be found on the events calendar under your specific show.

 I’d like to work for Toby’s, are you hiring and where do I apply?

We are always taking applications for hostesses, servers, bartenders and barbacks.  Our online application can be found here .  We do not require a photo or a link to your personal Facebook account but we highly recommend you do so.  People who add these will receive extra consideration.

Do you have a retail space in the restaurant to buy Toby’s merchandise?

We do not have a retail area at this location.  Currently Toby Keith’s retail goods can be found online here.
