The experience itself was entertaining and the food was pretty good. The cast is lively and audience interaction is encouraged.

This is a dinner and a show. The building is several centuries old and quite nice. Seating was cramped as they had too many chairs. The food portions were too small and there were only two choices. It was just ok, but not what I would recommend for dinner. The show was silly and appropriate only for under 30's. Too... More

Do not waste your money on the "gold circle" seating ! I paid extra to wave pom poms one time during the "performance"-& get a picture- that was what the "gold circle" seating was for. The seats were so tight my Mom's seat back was against another seat back. There is no stage- there really is no performance- It is... More

I had the wonderful opportunity to deal with the Murder Mystery Company's professional and pleasant staff. I had heard that the dinner show was amazing and so I had sought out tickets for my school's fundraiser. The people I spoke with were very helpful and accommodating. Whoever wins this amazing prize at my tricky tray will enjoy a great night... More

Boring. Main entree was just OK. Dessert was apparently half baked. Staff was indifferent, arrogant at times. Actors were OK. Managed to pull it. Although there wasn't much scope for them. There wasn't any stage performance. NONE at all.. They pick people from audience to play most of the characters.. And expect audience to interact with the real actors and... More

The whole show was very disorganized. We stood in a long line and waited for a mandatory photo. Then we were seated and moved again 5 minutes later to make room for a larger party. You sit on top of each other. Our order was NEVER taken. I flagged down a waiter to order drinks and they never came, so... More

We went in July when they had the 80s theme and it was a great show!! The area is ok considering it's Jersey City and the restaurant/bar is very nice and has a great bar! Drinks are a little on the expensive side($10 Long Island Ice Tea)! Now when we got there around 30 minutes before the show started and... More

I bought the Living Social deal. I went with my friend. There is no parking except for a lot next door which charges $8.00 The theme was a millionaire masquerade ball. We had to wait in a long line for a mandatory mug shot which we somehow managed to skip by running upstairs to the venue when the when of... More
