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. Call us to purchase tickets or to book special events!

We had a great time. My husband was volunteered to participated in the play. The guy that played the Soddy Daisy CSI was a hoot. He had the whole place laughing. I think he is a natural at ad-libbing. I had the fried shrimp dinner and it was good. My husband had the meat loaf dinner and he said... read more

This was a lot of fun, the menu is small but the food was good. We had an excellent time, and the staff was very good about including the clientele in the program. One girl especially had an excellent comeback to anything that the audience said. She worked it right into the show. We had a great time. Well worth... More

The actors were nice, but there was nothing organized about this at all. It is not a typical "dinner theater" but rather an 1.5 to 2 hours of random, fly by the seat of your pants skits. They involved some audience members, but nothing was scripted not entertaining. The food was horrible and our poor waitress couldn't keep anything straight.... More

The food was pretty rubbish but I'm not sure you should go to this with the food as a key requirement. The fun is the show. The actors circulate around the tables while you eat (in character) letting you find out about them and dropping clues that you don't realise they've done until later. These are very funny chats and... More

I really enjoy going to the Vaudeville. I have been a few different times and have always enjoyed the food and the show. I like how the cast interact with the audience and involve them as well. I am glad that they have moved into their new location. The other place was very dated and super small. The new place... More

Nice friendly atmosphere! They seated us at the very front next to the stage. It was the perfect place to be! The waiters brought out drinks and rolls then a salad. While we were chowing down...the actors came to our table asking us question and we asked them questions...the murder mystery has already started and your wheels are turning as... More

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
