Decent meal. Decent show. Lots of fun.

My husband and I went here for Valentine's Day. The show was entertaining but the venue was a little cheesy. The food was good but there wasn't enough to satisfy my husband... read more

The experience was terrible from start to finish. As we were checking in one of the servers/actors because very agitated by the fact that my friend was deciding between 2 food options. He was talking very loudly while we were still near the table about how terrible it was to deal with people. To top it off there were only... More

The wife and I enjoyed this. The food is pretty good, but not superior. The local actors really work hard, and you appreciate their effort. Our group was attractive and expert at this, it appeared they have worked together for a long time. Bring the kids.

I had never been to a mystery dinner theater before, so have nothing to compare this to. The actors are very good and quite funny. They even converse with you as you are checking in. I was surprised at the low number in attendance the night we attended (16), but it was a couple of weeks before Memorial Day, so... More

It was a good time. I think it was a bit overpriced but was entertaining. The actors did a great job and were funny. The food was not very hot, but tasted good. Just be prepared because they do ask for tips, suggested $7 a person, cash only.

Mystery dinner playhouse was great! The food was great and the show was great! The actors are personable and friendly. The show was funny and you can take pictures. You eat in between the scenes, but its kind of a rush, because the actors serve you and they dont start the next scene until everyone is done with the course.... More

Food was better than expected. The actors did a great job. We took my mother for her 73rd birthday. The staff was so friendly and really make my mother feel special. We would definably go again.
