Owner description: Actors perform a live family-friendly comedy show all around you as you eat your dinner and enjoy the action! This is dinner with fun and unpredictable outcomes. The actors follow a script and theme, but love to spontaneously involve some of the audience or say something unplanned. Although they love playing with the audience, they are always respectful of those who just enjoy watching. Get to know the characters as they work their way around the room. Spot a crime. Identify the culprit when the authorities arrive. Appropriate for all ages!

Our family of 5 went for the show of the Redneck Italian Wedding and really had a good time. Show was very entertaining and the food was delicious. This would be a great place to take out of town guests for a night of fun. We will definitely return.

This is a great family fun night, big laughs for everyone. A new location has certainly improved everything, from the food to the service to the restrooms.

We enjoyed the airplane mystery show this last week, and got to participate. They have moved across the street, and the location is great. They now take your order for food instead of having the buffet, Good food, and excellent dessert. A fun night.

Don't miss the show because of bad reviews!! The folks that write those 'woe is me' reviews are the type of people that will complain no matter what. The problem is those type of negative reviews almost kept me from taking my wife. But boy am I glad I did. The show was great and the actors interacting with the... More

We went to the 7pm Friday nite show. The show itself was entertaining and the actors came to the table and interacted with us very well. The food and service however left much to be desired. The website had 5 or 6 entrees as well as vegetarian meals, but they were not available. We had to choose from 3 entrees... More

We attended the 7:30 show on Friday, September 26, 2014. When we arrived, there was not an attendant in the reception area. Several customers were standing around wondering what we should be doing. After an approximate 15 minute wait, a member of the staff arrived to check everyone in. He did not know how to handle our Living Social deal... More

I have been wanting to go to The Vaudeville Cafe for years. My husband and I finally got an off day together and we were so excited to take the two hour drive to go. What a huge disappointment. I'll start with the good aspects: the actors. That's it. They were friendly, funny, and very talented. Minuses: The service was... More

I had been to the vaudeville cafe one other time and the good was not very good for the price you paid. My husband and I went last night. Apparently it was their first night in the new building. I know that things can be tough on the first night of anything, so I decided to go in with patience.... More
