Excellent Time

Probably one of the coolest experiences that I have had with my family. The food was awesome and the show was non stop fun. My kids are still talking about it!

The food there was absolutely terrible. The potato was dry, and for 62 dollars I GOT HALF A POTATO. A dry one at that. The chicken had no flavor and there was weird brown stuff in it. The corn had no flavor, other then unsalted butter. The coke was the best part of the meal, until midway through the show... More

We enjoyed the show and the kids had a great time. The food and service were very good too. It is pricey-look for coupons.

First time coming here. Heard terrific reviews. Got discounted tickets, otherwise, I don't think I would have went to see what it was all about. Super expensive. I recommend getting there an hour before your show starts. I knew you had to eat with your hands: well, we were served chicken and ribs, of course, you would eat with your... More

A place where you can drink, eat with your bare hands and watch a cheesy display of medieval swordplay and lancing. The horses are very eloquent and well trained, they provide a beautiful show of equestrian techniques. The food is acceptable, not bad but not great. The alcohol is decent and widely available from beginning to end, with wine, spirits,... More
