Went with a group of 25 seniors on a Friday night, and while there were a few humorous moments during the Flight Mystery show, it all seemed very cheesy and poorly rehearsed. Very little acting and a hard to follow story line. The place is very cramped and the stage is tiny. My group was sitting so close to the... More

I saw Mystery of the Redneck Italian Wedding yesterday at the Vaudeville Cafe. The show was hilarious. This is not a traditional dinner theatre. The show was comedy based and improvisational at times. One of the best aspects of the show is that the audience gets involved. The service was great as well. The buffet had this home made sweet...

I had wanted to try out the dinner theater for some time, so I was excited when I was able to get my hands on half price tickets. Sadly, I still feel like I overpaid. Because I had prepaid tickets, I had to call the box office for reservations. I called multiple times during the posted box office hours before... More

My wife has always wanted to try a dinner theater out, so we figured we'd try it on our vacation. resturant is pretty cramped, which makes it hard to eat, enjoy and control our children. My wife went to make plates for the kids when we got there and one child spilled their drink all over themself and the other... More

We purchased a ticket to a celebrity stand up show at Vaudeville Cafe. The show was canceled the day before. They called and left us a message so that we could either receive a credit back to our card or a gift card to future shows. We called multiple times and asked for a credit back to our card and...

We were visiting the area and thought we'd try to do/see things that may be different and "off-the-beaten-path." A dinner theater sounded good - we don't have anything like this where we're from. So my wife, 9 year old son and myself went on a Saturday night and saw Mystery at the Redneck Italian Wedding. GOOD: The opportunities for audience... More

We went to the Mystery of Flight 138 show. Last year we had gone to the Facebook show. I like them both, but the Facebook seemed to be better. They always make me laugh. The food was okay. It wasn't spectacular, but it wasn't bad either.

There is no organization when it comes to getting in line. We arrived an hour early and were pretty much the only people there. People would come in, check in and then just stand up front. We got a table in the back and was the last table in the row. Everyone that came in had to stop and take... More

I hate that we had issues with the buffet that night and feel even worse that the server was not more attentive to take care of your needs. I assure you that if you come back, we will do everything possible to make this experience much better. More

As I reviewed some of the comments on here, I guess people fail to realize this isn't your average murder mystery dinner. This is a comedy murder mystery dinner, it tells you that heck you might also end up being in the show. The food was average, but usually buffet food is. I didn't expect some celebrate meal for the... More
