Please note: Due to the Coronavirus pandemic, our Applause Club buffet dining options have been suspended at this time. We can’t wait to serve you again, and will let you know when it’s safe to do so.
Leave the cooking to us! Dining at Starlight before a show is a tasty, hassle-free way to start your Starlight night.
Summer Broadway Series
Starlight offers two choices for buffet-style dining before each Broadway show in the Applause Club.
Best of Broadway Buffet
An upscale menu and dining experience in the Applause Club’s indoor, air-conditioned spaces.
- INSIDE the Applause Club, Starlight dinner guests relax in air-conditioned comfort at linen-covered tables, select from an expanded variety of chef-prepared food items at the buffet, and receive full table service. To complement your dinner, a complete wine list by the glass and bottle is offered. Soft drinks and dessert are included in the dinner price. Gratuity is not included.
Day of Show
KC Barbecue Buffet
A casual and budget-friendly dining experience on the Applause Club patio.
- Dining on the patio outside the Applause Club, guests enjoy a casual but hearty buffet dining experience alongside Starlight’s picturesque fountains. In keeping with a Kansas City tradition, our new KC Barbecue Buffet offers tasty food choices for diners who love their barbecue and traditional sides! Table service is provided for soft drink refills and adult beverage purchases. Soft drinks and dessert are included in the dinner price. Gratuity is not included.
