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 box office is open Tuesday-Saturday 11am-4pm. Our shows are every Thursday, Friday, and Saturday night.

One time thing!

We did the dinner show 2 years ago for my birthday. The food wasn't good, I knew that before we went because I had read reviews. We did enjoy the show so with that said, I think it's worth going one time for the show.

I'm a glass half full kind of girl. Try to usually be positive.Unfortunately in this case, I am positive I will never return or recommend this dinner theatre. Actors are very pleasant and do a good job with what they have, however,what they have is terrible. There is no actual solving of a murder mystery. It is random skits that... More

This is NOT highbrow entertainment. Our experiences with dinner theater led us to dress far better than we needed to, but we didn't feel out of place. Everyone from the ticket lady to the waitress, to the entertainers who came around and mingled with us pre-show was very friendly! For one ticket price, there was a menu selection - my... More

I'm shocked this place is in business somehow. Must get a lot of tourists from out of town. We had never been, and will definitely not return. The food was not good, the waitress brought us the wrong drinks multiple times, the actors seemed to be making up a script (with little talent) and kept saying "someone please bail me... More

When I relocated to Chattanooga in 07 I wasn't surprised about the lack of theatrical interest, it is the south after all. I stumbled upon a deal online for Vaudeville Cafe and was pleasantly surprised because I didn't know a dinner/theatre show still existed and it was here in Chattanooga. I jumped on buying tickets, but expecting a mediocre show.... More

Omg what a great 2.5 hours of our vacation! We were headed back to Ohio and decided to stop in Chattanooga. We got to watch the office party murder mystery. I wasn't able to stop laughing from the minute we headed into the place. The actors were great! Molly was great in character and kept coming back to our table... More

Went for a friend's bachelorette party. The buffet was discussing, the only thing I ate were the chicken fingers. We had reservations and still the staff had "problems" seating us. We arrived close to show start time and sat at our table for almost 20 minutes before being waited on. We saw the Redneck Italian Wedding. The acting is that... More

Had so much laughs with their dinner shows. It was so good that we went and seen each one that was playing. Plenty of food and great casts. This is a very nice place to go with the family it will make you Laugh Out Loud.

Not what we expected. The food was terrible. The show was just okay. It wasn't great. I would not spend $30 per a person to go back.
