This is a very comfortable venue. By this, I mean that it's easy to get to, parking is very convenient, all seating is good. Food is Pennsylvania Dutch buffet. For locals, its second nature, but out-of-towners think its a novelty. The shows are find, provided you know what to expect. It's a cut-below regional theatre but its solid and very... More

This is a fun and enjoyable evending. The shows are great, and the food is good to. A very talented cast and they have a out 6-7 different shows a year. Catch one, and you'll want to see more.

We have been there several times and have always enjoyed the shows. It is a small dinner theater, but has big shows. I would not say that they are on par with say a Kennedy Center performance because of the staying production, but the performances themselves have been very professional and entertaining. We were impressed with the performances there. We... More

I have been to many shows at this theatre. We are always entertained and find that the shows are of a good quality for community theatre. The floor is tiered so all seats are good. This is a dinner theatre, but they offer a show only ticket. We have found the bufffet to be lacking in variety and quality. We... More

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
