Maybe it's just not my thing

I can tell right away who was the actor/actresses. We had this one actor sat in our table. It's so obvious since the whole table was just us! We knew right away he was a part of... read more

Very Fun Evening! We were a bit apprehensive due to other reviews of the “Paddle Wheel Boat”. The boat is old and well maintained! The food was good…and well presented. If you are looking for a “10 star” meal…then the meal may not meet your expectations….However, you are not paying for a 10 star meal and remember that when reviewing... More

We came here to celebrate our company's Christmas party. Kudos to my coworkers for the idea. It was a great idea that just didn't pan out. I had even wanted to do this for my husband's birthday so I was interested but to tell you the truth, I would have rather been stuck on the 405 freeway a little longer... More

Decided to take my husband on his 40th birthday for some fun while cruising the Long Beach harbor. First of all, the line to register for the evening's entertainment(sad amateur actors) was way too long and moved too slowly. Several of us were stuck in the blazing sun while we waited for everyone to be checked in. The main room... More

I can tell right away who was the actor/actresses. We had this one actor sat in our table. It's so obvious since the whole table was just us! We knew right away he was a part of the show. Surely enough, after salad, he was "dead".

My husband celebrated a major b-day but did not want the usual kind of party. So I did a murder mystery lunch. It was a huge hit. most of our friends had never expected to be caught up in murder. The actor were great and the people I dealt with at the company were very helpful. It's now April and... More

My fiancé and I totally enjoyed the show and were immediately pulled into the action! Dont go if you are shy or have no sense of humor! I actually became PART of the show! (Later I found out that my fiancé has emailed them and sent them a wonderful picture of me behind bars at Alcatraz), which they had a... More

My husband and I went to check this out. We had never been to a murder mystery dinner show and wanted to see what it was like. The execution of the story was very entertaining, but the food was sub-par for the price you paid. I still haven't gotten over the platter of fried appetizers that was set down in... More

We were so thrilled when we made the reservations and very pleased with the whole show and dinner! We sat next to really nice fun people who made the experience so worth it, we were laughing so hard that our cheeks were sore for the rest of the night! Our favorite part was choosing an alias for ourselves, so if... More

I bought these tickets to celebrate a wedding anniversary. My wife and I went with high expectations of a very good dinner cruise, and a live murder mystery show. So here is the review. • The Boat: It was not the one advertised (staff stated it was due to repairs). Advertised Boat was 3 Level enclosed Paddle wheel Boat. What... More

We loved the Dinner Detective Murder Mystery and cruise. The characters had us laughing and playing detective immediately!! The staff was sweet & courteous from ordering tickets to plotting against our friend to be a suspect. We laughed and laughed throughout the meal with the show having no interruptions to service and the food was excellent. We had time to... More
