Was pleasantly surprised with the evening of fun that we enjoyed here in August 2014. The food was served buffet style and was satisfactory. No beer or wine available for purchase but they did advise us at time we made reservations that we could bring our alcohol. The fun began then after dinner. We attended a show entitled Klondike Kalamity... More

This was the 2nd trip to the playhouse for us. We saw "Les Mis" it was so funny and good. Actors did a great job. The warm up show was hilarious, enjoyed it very much! Dinner was great, and cinnamon rolls (As big as your head) to die for. We had a great time, will definitely do this again soon.

We went to the playhouse to see one of 3 plays they offered. It was a musical entitled "Lucky Stiff". It was your typical summer play with mostly students but was done well. Creative in costuming and scenery. The cast was creative when scenery faltered. The dinner was delicious. Prime rib, baked potatoes, corn, baked beans. It was served buffet... More

Worth our money for an evening of dinner and entertainment! The new owners have listened to their guests and made great improvements since last year. We attended Klondike Kalamity, a melodrama, this year and were quite pleased with the show. The actors/actresses were hilarious. Crowd interaction and ad-lib were reminiscent of years past and truly made the show. Young children... More

I enjoyed the atmosphere at Mack’s Inn Playhouse. Without a doubt a relaxing evening after a hectic day at Yellowstone because nothing bets a simple diner and a funny show for those weary bones. We all laughed, booed the villain and cheered the Canadian Ranger in Klondike Calamity. There’s tasty food about enough to fill you up but not too... More

Mack's Inn Playhouse recently came under new ownership, and it has become much better since then. We saw "Lucky Stiff" which was pretty funny, and the young actors were decently talented. As far as the food goes, I would highly recommend the prime rib, it is what I got and it was delicious. My Mom got the salmon, and it... More

This was a delightful find near Island Park. After a really good pulled pork dinner with delicious homemade rolls, baked beans, baked potato, salad and dessert cup, a silky melodrama was performed by students from the Snow College drama department. It was fun to cheer the hero, boo the villain, and laugh at all of the goofy jokes. Fun evening!

The building looks run down and old from the outside - don't be discouraged - inside is great professional entertainment and good food. We've never been to such a funny and interactive show. The jokes and one-liners kept coming throughout this well produced show (we saw Less Miserables - a Whole Lot LESS Miserable). Very family friendly: the kids got... More
