Mystery Theatre - Worth a Go!

We went to the mystery theatre dining experience "A Fistful of Hollers" and we had a wonderful time. The mansion itself is a wonderful venue - the outside is lovely and very welcoming for somewhere that's supposed to be haunted. Once inside we had access to a few rooms to wait for our dining room... read more

Having lived in Saint Louis for nearly 25 years, I have always heard about the Lemp Mansion. However I have never dined there or attended one of their Mystery Dinners. That changed recently and I joined three others for their Sunday Fried Chicken dinner. The surroundings are historic and the staff was among the most friendly and attentive as I've... More

The Lemp Mansion has been on my bucket list of places to see for a long time so I can't say that I was disappointed. My husband and I went for lunch and the food was nothing special. We loved the bread and the homemade butter and the dressing for the salad, but he said my meatloaf was better, but... More

Let's start with the good. The chicken strips were homemade and delicious. But $12.95 for an 8 year old was ridiculous. Now the bad. The stuffed mushrooms were kind of gross. The dish appeared to be previously frozen and baked. Instead of nice firm mushrooms, they were black, squishy and slimey. The salads were adequate, no brown lettuce. Enjoyed the... More

The Staff at Lemp is excellent. Our waiter Don did a fince job with a good descripiton of the variouw meal opitons. The meal was not the best I have had but then the Historical nature of the place made up for my mild diappointment. Vist the Gift Shop Martha is excellent with the history. She is very nice to...

We did the murder mystery dinner show and had a blast! The food was just okay, but the interactive show so much fun! The actors were laid back and personal. Beautiful atmosphere! Recommend!

Our daughter is an aficionado of haunted places and really wanted to visit Lemp while we were in St. Louis visiting family. We expected a good lunch in a mansion famous for its haunted history. We were pleasantly surprised to have a wonderful lunch with truly homemade touches. We started with the nice wine, beer and bar selection - very... More

The character and charm of the Lemp Mansion makes it a good place to visit for anyone interested in history , local historic architecture, or supposedly, hauntings. The food, however, was bland, predictable, and overpriced. We went on a Sunday for the fried chicken family-style. The chicken and coleslaw were OK. The rest was just canned. The alcoholic drinks with... More

Really enjoyed the Harm for the Holidays show that just opened as our first visit to Lemp Mansion and experience with dinner theatre. Service throughout the evening was terrific, food was very good and fresh, and the entertainment was great--definitely influenced by who else is in the room and taking the various roles. While we were just a couple paired... More
