Not Broadway, but an excellent meal on a quaint old train

Moving entertainment and dining can be difficult to pull off well, with many limitations in space, supplies, etc. For a relatively small operation (compared say to a cruise ship... read more

Went on a Sunday night with my husband and 20 yr old daughter who is home from college for the summer. We had a ball. This really brings you back to experience the olden days (so don't go thinking it's one of those new super-duper rides at Disney- it isn't) which is sad that some of the negative comments from...

Nothing about this was spectacular in any way. This is probably really fun for children, but being 20 it was extremely easy to guess the culprit, and the acting was a little too cheesy for my taste. The food was just alright, nothing was truly spectacular, though the key lime pie was good. Service was ok, but my boyfriend went... More

This is a great experience to share with a group of friends and do something unique. The Show - The best part of the experience was the show. We saw "Murder Most Elite." Off the bat, the acting was great. You feel the drama and intensity of the actors. They were all impressive and surprisingly very good. Ambiance and setting... More

We had a group of four the Sunday night train. The train cars furnishings were very nice. The wait staff was very helpful but also reminded you EVERY FIVE MINUTES that their gratuity is not included in the ticket price. Also beverages such as ice tea and coffee are not included in the price of the ticket. As usual they... More

Always great fun, good food and once again guessed wrong about who did it. PS: it was not the maid. New shows all the time. The guys came up with the correct murder mystery who done it. The girls lost.

This was the second time we went and we had a great time. The food was fantastic and so was the service. The actors were wonderful and very engaged with the audience. It was fun writing down clues and trying to figure out who the murderer was. This is a must for anyone wanting something different for dinner.

Moving entertainment and dining can be difficult to pull off well, with many limitations in space, supplies, etc. For a relatively small operation (compared say to a cruise ship) SGRMMDT does a very good job. The performance, written by one of the actresses, was cute; with scenes performed between meal courses, it made for a jumpy experience--but a necessary one... More

My cousin and her family invited me to join them for the Murder Mystery Train last night. We arrived and found our seat in the the Gasparilla car, only to have our server Jamie, a female, walk up to our table and ask us if we needed anything to drink. My cousin asked for water with lemon, to which our... More

My sister and her husband were in town and we wanted to do something special. The mystery-dinner train was a great choice. The mystery was great fun and the food--I had prime rib--was outstanding. The dining cars have been restored with great care. The staff and service were great.
