Easy to get to. Plenty of easy parking. Show itself was better than what we were expecting. They did fall short in the food department. Food was ok at best and thats even being to nice. Go for the show, not the food.

My wife and I have seen several shows at Dutch Apple: The Wedding Singer, Holly Jolly Christmas, A Swinging Christmas and It's A Wonderful Life. Each show was incredible, and the food is absolutely delicious. If they have pot roast on the day that you're going, get it., It's incredible! We purchased tickets for the Christmas show in 2013. Unfortunately,... More

Enjoyed a lunch and matinee performance for the Christmas performance of "It's a Wonderful Life." Buffet menu had a nice basic variety with great desserts. The service was excellent and the setting was very nice. The performance was awesome with a wonderful pit orchestra. Had a great time and will certainly go back again!

Dutch Apple offers good shows and good food! Try to go at night to avoid school aged kids on field trips as the menu does change for them. (i.e. chicken nuggets and French fries vs. steak)

We dine with two other couples on a monthly basis and cruise/vacation together at least once per year. We saw that the Dutch Apple Dinner Theater was presenting It's A Wonderful Life and booked a reservation. The location is just off of the Rt 30 Centerville Road exit. Really easy to find. The hostess took us to our reserved table.... More

We were unsure of the Dutch Apple Theater as we only viewed the menu online and we took friends of ours, who live in Lancaster, PA to this terrific local dinner theater. They had never been there before. Both my wife and our friends have mobility issues and it was great that there were no stairs involved. Great seats from... More

Went to the Dutch Apple with my wife and 2 of our friends to see "It's a Wonderful Life". The four of us are subscription members, so we have seen and enjoyed several plays at this venue. The Dutch Apple serves a nice buffet with a good salad bar and various hot offerings. There is also a wonderful dessert bar... More

We just went as a tour group to see A Wonderful Life. The trip is right up the turnpike so access is easy. The parking lot is ample. At the lunch show there were three large tours present this Thursday. Once seated you are given a cup of the soup du jour. Today was chicken corn soup. Surprisingly there was... More
