Every show I've sen there has been close to Broadway quality. The food is not the greatest, but good enough for what you pay. It's sort of standard buffet stuff...

We are season ticket holders and do five or six shows a year. The performances have all been excellent. We sit right up front and enjoy watching the pit orchestra as well. The service is also excellent. The buffet is OK. It's pretty much the same each time and not very exciting. Early in the evening the carving station is... More

We saw "A Christmas Story". The actors were very good. The buffet was decent, but they run out of food very quickly, so don't get there late. People go back 2 to 3 times. Waitress was fine. The price was great for dinner and a show, so would go again if I go back to Lancaster.

I've been here many times over the years, and there has always been a reason to return. When we shared a table earlier this year with New Yorkers to see Oklahoma, they told us that the DA's OK production was better than Broadway, and that they come several times a year in a combined shopping and theater trip, which I...

Went on December 27th with family to see a Christmas Story. The buffet was really good and they also have a salad bar. There are two lines so it helps everyone to get there food smoothly and efficiently. The food is good as well. The show was really good as well. This was our first dinner theater so we didn't...

Been at this theater several times and have never been disappointed. The shows were excellent and the actors/actresses were very talented for a small enterprise like the Dutch Apple. While the food was not spectacular, it was tasty and plenty of it. I always had good seats, although the tables were a bit too close, they've now fixed that. Take... More

My husband and I go once a year for the Christmas show, and my mom and I other times to catch other shows. The food is average and could be better, but every show we have seen there has been GREAT! We live an 1 hour 1/2 away otherwise I think we would definitely go more frequently. We always enjoy... More

We took a family Christmas trip to Dutch Apple (planned months in advance) for dinner and the show. The food was decent, for a buffet, the show was wonderful and the service was top of the line - from the person that greeted us at the door to the wait staff (Beth was the best!), everyone was kind, and eager...

The food was not that delightful, but it was a great abundance. The dessert was amazing, though. When the play started it was very hard to see because of all of the different peoples heads in your view. The servers were very polite. It was kind of a hassle to get in at first, but it turned out OK. The... More
