“Dinner Theater”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2012

This is a fabulous dinner and a show sort of thing to take the kids to. You have to arrive early so you can have cringe worthy pictures taken, buy trinkets and Medieval Times doo-dads.

You eat with your hands and dinner includes: tomato basil soup, bread, 1/2 a roasted chicken, a BBQ rib, 2 hush puppies and then an apple turnover as dessert. They serve sweet tea, soda pop, water, coffee and there is a cash bar before you are seated. So the food is not spectacular but if you are a kid... this is amazing.. you are eating with your hands... while the characters are jousting and sword fighting.. what could be better?!?!

Look on the website for deals before making your reservations!! This is critical... you can save a LOT this way. This is an expensive outing.

It is a little dorky but again... for kids... AMAZING. This is similar to dinner theater back in the day (Circus Circus anyone?) The horses are truly spectacular.. and it is a fun show with lots of drama.

“Good Experience!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2012 via mobile

We took our kids here for a special treat. We are not "medieval times" regulars, but this was fun. It is a good experience for all ages. Be prepared to eat the food with your hands. There are no utensils. Little kids may have some difficulty with this part. They give you a ton of food, so you do leave full. Kids will enjoy the horses, jousting, and sword fighting. I would recommend getting seats near the front row and close to the castle for the full experience. The actors did a really nice job. This is also a good trip for large groups. They offer birthday parties and more!

“Fantastic show, food has improved.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2012

We went here while on spring break vacation, approximately one year from our last visit. Both the food and the show had improved. The garlic bread had changed from a Texas Toast slice to a grilled pita bread round, which was much better. The tomato soup was served steaming hot and had a good flavor, although I still wish it had a perfectly smooth texture because it is sipped from a bowl rather than eaten with a spoon. The roasted half chicken was about the same. The spare rib was still awful, but the potato wedges were better seasoned. The apple pastry dessert was very good and better than last year. Overall, the experience is worth doing, as long as you don't expect a gourmet meal and keep your eyes on the arena.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2012

This place takes you back in time to watch the kings knights fight. The food is ok but the entertainment is fabulous.

“Great Dinner and Dining Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2012

We've been to this one and the one in Orlando a number of times. The kids love the environment and show, and the food is good. If you don't mind eating with your fingers, this is a nice treat-- especially if you have visitors you'd like to take out for an enjoyable dinner.
