“Show wonderful. Eating awkward.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2012 via mobile

We really enjoyed the drama of the show and the happy ending. Yakov is not in show, but has recorded video narration. Dinner was passable, but hard to eat comfortably because of the setup.

“Great Show”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2012

We looked forward to seeing this act. It was everything and more than we expected. A visit to Branson would not be complete without seeking this performer. We will go to another show on our next visit. Branson is the place you want to go back to. Yakov is probably the most patriotic person I have met. He has more patriotism than MANY born-in-the-USA people. He truly knows what this country should be but no longer is. He is what immigration is about. Immigration is not to change our country to be like the immigrants country but to change the immigrant into an American with the freedoms permitted in this country while retaining their heritage as they evolve into what they can become and attain. Yakov is a true Patriot - he too takes time to thank veterans/military with sincerity. Yakov should be recognized as the official ambassador of Patriotism for this country - HE KNOWS THE TRUE MEANING!

“Unique cultural experience in Branson - fun for the whole family”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2012

We were highly entertained at this show. It is narrated by Yakov on a screen while the live performers are professional Russian entertainers - a ballerina, circus performers, aerialists, etc. The aerialists were extraordinary and the whole show was like being at a Russian circus - which you can't see at too many places in the world. It is the kind of show the children will love as well as the adults. The food was wonderful too - a large quantity and good variety and quality. Served on cloth with real silverware at your seats. Definitely see it while in Branson.

“Super Food, Super Fun, Super Memories!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2012

Yakov's Dinner Adventure was such a wonderful time for us! I would do it again. The love story was such a special story and it kept us captive at all times. We so enjoyed the show, the actors, the story and all the cast as they thrilled us to the edge of our seats! The food was great, the story was such a wonderful time and it left us laughing one minute, and then a few tears in the end... great and would do it all over again!

“What a beautifull story line.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2012

This show had a beautifull story about a clown and his love story. Loved, Loved, Loved it. Before the dinner was served a clown came out and got the adiance ready. My husband became the target of his fun. My husband played along and we are still talking about the fun game of beach ball volley ball. My husband and one other man holding the "net" of masking tape. The meal was good. It was a little hard to eat. The tables are pulled out from hour seat and are like a writting desk in a college class room. Not much room to work with. It was do able. I would love to see this show again, but I understand this is the last year. Boo!
