“Get Into It”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2012

Come here and be prepared to get into the show. You can't be ashamed to yell, and wave your hands in the air. My daughter is a huge pirate fan so while we were around the area we decided to stop on by. The show is alright...it needs a little work because it starts off a little slow but towards the end you'll be fully absorbed by it. We used one of their discounts that that had on their website also.

“One of those places you'll either love or hate!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2012

We went to the Pirate Dinner Adventure for Father's Day in a group of 6 (2 dads, 2 moms, and 2 7 year olds). Apart from our 7 year old, my husband and I thought that the whole show was pretty awful. The food was fine but nothing special. We paid about $100 for the 3 of us WITH the 2-4-1 adult discount. The show started at 7pm and by 8pm we swore we had been there for about 4 hours already...LONG and tedious show.

All of that being said...the other couple with us enjoyed the show and the food...so GO FIGURE!? Maybe it was the rum?

I would have rather spent the $100 in Downtown Disney or doing just about anything else. My husband gave me a big sarcastic "GEE THANKS HONEY!" for that Father's Day idea!! HAHA.

“Go if you have little ones!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2012

Our kids were amazed and absolutly loved it, as for the adults the food wasnt very good at all the appitizers pre show were a joke (little smokies on pieces of plain white bread not toasted or anything lol), and drink prices way to expensive, pretty neat show, except when the male cast member pirates first came out you'd have thought your were at a bad male strip club lol!

“Great for families and kids!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2012 via mobile

We took my 6 year old daughter to the pirates dinner show on a Saturday. She loved it and had a great time. The audience participation was great. They even pulled my husband on stage. I do think however the plot was very cheesy and they could have done something more piratey. The drinks were pricey and the dessert stinked. Overall I would recommend this place if you have children.

“Great show...poor food”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2012

Went to the Pirates Dinner Adventure on Tuesday 3rd of April 2012, If only the cooks put as much effort into the food as the performers did into the show it would be 10/10.
When you make claims that a salad consists of lettuce leaves and one cherry tomato then you have lost the plot. If it wasnt for the show we would have walked out and demanded a refund. It cost over $200 for 2 adults and 1 child and Im afraid this place is on borrowed time unless they address the food issue.
