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 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
