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

It started with a very nice dinner! We had the prime rib with all the trimmings. If you are in the area don,t hesitate! It will... 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

My wife and I had a thoroughly enjoyable evening at Mack's Inn Playhouse. We had a very enjoyable meal of dinner salad, salmon, baked beans, baked potato (with sour cream, butter, and chives), corn, roll, and a tasty desert cup. We opted out of the prime rib because we knew we would be eating some other full meals that day.... More

We decided to check out the new cast at Mack's Inn Playhouse, and we were pleasantly surprised by how talented each and every one of them were! The show was hilarious, and a couple of the kids had voices that seemed fit for broadway. Seriously. As for the food, (there is also a new chef,) it was better than ever!... More

This is a fun place to take the family and the play we went to was well done. The food served if you get that option is OK...but not the best. All in all it is a fun night.

This was so disappointing. The food was marginal; the acting borderline; but the real disappointment came when they "passed the hat" for tips! We paid a significant amount of money to bring all of our children and grandchildren to this performance and the "tip hat" took the cake. We will not return.

We have been to one or both shows at this playhouse every year for the past decade or more. This is not the playhouse of recent years! Passing a TIP hat around the audience before the show? How presumptuous. Their website proclaims that they are taking the playhouse to the next level and beyond, yet the show we attended didn't... More

Change is Hard! Everyone who ever saw Drew Durrant onstage here at Mack's Inn, misses his antics. But opportunity knocked and he took it. We will keep trying to win you over, what- I - think- about! More
