We saw the evening performance with buffet dinner and was thrilled by it! The show was well done and the food was top notch with all you can eat including the desserts! Even though we sat in the front row, the music wasn't too loud to enjoy the show. This place is a must visit if you are into any... More

In summary, if you're a tourist and feel the "need" to see a show (and don't have super high expectations), you'll probably enjoy yourself. If you're local, save your money for a bit longer and go to the Fulton or Hershey Theater and a good dinner. Dinner is a buffet- edible, a few decent items, a few sub-par, about what... More

We saw a matinee of Hairspray. We enjoyed the play but the lunch buffet was average. Over all it was a nice afternoon out.

Very disappointed. Went to see Hairspray, the cast was mediocre at best. I am surprised this is not a volunteer play. The man playing the mother was the only reason we stayed he was fantastic. The lead, and nemesis were horrific. I think they were coached to sing in annoying highpitched squeal.. Not so good. Seating was terrible we didnt... More

My wife and I had not been to Dutch Apple for a number of years. We went tonight for the Hairspray production. First, the food has shown a dramatic improvement over our past experiences. It was buffet food, but excellent nonetheless. Second, the Hairspray production was terrific! The lead, Megan Power as Tracy Turnblad, owned the part. Made it come... More

My wife and I celebrated our 30th wedding anniversary by going to Dutch Apple to see Hairspray. The musical was excellent, as good or better than anything on Broadway, excellent acting, can not say enough good things about the show. We really enjoyed Hairspray and highly recommend it to everyone. The meal on the other hand was just ok, buffet... More

Last weekend my wife and I saw Hairspray. The show was great, cast was wonderful. The experience left a lot to be desired. Unexpectantly, we were seated, or I should say squeezed into seats at a table for eight, six strangers and us. It would have been nice to know the seating when we made the reservations. Buffet lines were... More

The Dutch Apple Theatre is a charming place to spend time in Lancaster County. We recently saw Hairspray. Fun, funny entertainment with a delicious dinner. All topped off with shoe-fly pie. Doesn't get any better than that!

This is not gourmet food by any stretch of the imagination but is was all very tasty. They don't have a lot of choices for vegetarians but if you are a meat eater, they have lots to choose from. They do have a very adequate salad bar. They have a nice dessert selection including a make your own sundae. The... More
