I took my parents for my fathers 80th birthday. We were offered a comedy show before our dinner show for $5 extra. The comedians were funny however they did not have the air on until we were already seated and sweating. After that show we were directed to the theater where salad was waiting on the table but none of the cheese and crackers as advertised. My parents were hungry and looking forward to a snack to hold them until dinner was served. Very unorganized at front desk with only one person, a second came to help but didn't really know what he was doing. The food was good, waitress was great but it took a bit to settle in from being so hungry. I would not recommend the comedy show before the dinner show. It just seemed like you missed out on the snacks at the table, the performers roaming through the crowd and bringing you to your table. The drinks are expensive and the bartender woman was not very friendly. I would go to the show again but would not pay full price. The cost for the picture they take at the table is a bit on the high side but a cute idea and includes a 5x7 pic with a key chain and a magnet picture. The inside itself looks and smells old and can use a bit of a fix up.

We found this place by accident on our honeymoon 25 years ago and this was our first time back to Orlando without the kids. We decided to do it again. Loved it back then and loved it now. Decent food and great fun. Mature children would also enjoy. If you can get a discount, recommend trying as the price is a bit on the steep side. The picture at the table was also pricey but it was good quality so we bought it anyway

Well worth attending. We found this on our last visit to Orlando in April on the hotel recommedation. Enjoyed it so much on our return trip now in November, we attended again and it was still great. They have different shows so you get a different show each time. If we return again to the Orlando area, this will on our list to see again

Mixed feelings about the experience. The show itself was quite entertaining, but taking all things into consideration after the evening, it was definitely not budget friendly, and actually had me a bit regretful when all was said and done. I am a frequent spender in Orlando, passes to all the theme parks, regularly visit venues for misc things to do with my family. First, the cost of the dinner/show. You pay when you check in, and maybe for a couple it wouldn't seem so bad, but my family of 4 ended up costing over $300 for the dinner/show. I guess I was kind of duped when they asked me if I wanted to leave the gratuity on my card, since they calculated the standard gratuity on the entire cost of the show and dinner. After the sticker shock of a $46 tip which upset me, I realized they added a tip to their show as well as the meal. I would have never done that. The meal was actually horrible, and I never complain about food while dining out. It was a Thanksgiving menu, the turkey was just ok, the mashed potatoes were hard, the stuffing tasted bad to all of us, and I can't recall what else was on the plate. The pumpkin pie after dinner was just ok and the coffee after desert was good, fortunately. Another complaint was the reservation said free unlimited softdrinks, so when we checked in while waiting for the show, there was a bar to get something and I found out my husband paid $16 for four sodas while we were waiting to be brought over to our tables next door. If you are spending $300 for a 2 hour dinner/show, you would think if you did have to purchase a drink while waiting, it would be a little more reasonable in cost. Also the tip regret severely impacted my overall experience since the waitstaff was serving a mixed seated table. We had three different parties sitting at our same table, so that means if you use the person to person tip calculation they passed on to me, that server made about $100 at just our table for the 2 hour experience, of which only a short period of time was set aside for the dining portion of the experience and there was minimal interaction needed since the drinks were served just in pitcher form for your own refills as needed, rather than them having to continually serve you. It was the worst service to tip dining I have ever seen and I will be sure to never attend this event again just because of that alone.

Thank you for attending the show and providing us with your concerns. We take all guest comments seriously and make adjustments where they may be needed. We were happy to see that you found the show entertaining. In looking into your comment, we see that you did receive our November special rate of $60.95 for visit (our regular gate price is $70.95) for our Special Thanksgiving show at 6:30 PM show that ended around 9PM. The experience is designed so that you receive your salad and drink service when you arrive in the dining room. Then you see a comedy mystery play where all the clues are presented, after which guests are served a plated dinner and more drinks while they work as teams to come up with the questions for the interrogation. Next we have the 2nd part which is the interrogation where the guests ask their questions and uncover additional clues, followed by dessert and coffee service, and ending with the final unveiling of the criminal. As for your concerns about tipping, first we want to tell you how grateful we are for you taking care of our staff. Since 2020/Covid, we have been working on a limited staff who have given up all their holidays with their families so that we can provide a holiday event for our guests. They are a fantastic crew who really care about the guests. We were disappointed to hear that you felt that they were undeserving. As a little background, our crew arrives early in the day to prepare for the guests for our evening show. Everything you use and have in the dining room is prepared by our staff daily as well as cleaned up well into the night after our guests leave. We as a company, do not allow them in the dining room during performance times out of respect for the cast and guests experience. However, rest assured that our staff is very busy during these times as they are preparing for the next portion of the show and getting things ready for the best experience. On average our staff walks upwards 6.5 miles each night - they are on the move from the time they arrive to the time they leave. We are sorry that that was not evident. As for the food, on Thanksgiving, we offer a traditional Thanksgiving dinner at no additional cost to our guests. This is a more expansive menu than our normal show and requires preparation well in advance just like a holiday meal you would prepare at home. We love doing it as a special treat for our guests. Again, we sorry you didn’t enjoy it but we can assure you that we make it all from scratch and lots of love! We hope in explaining this that our guests see that we do care greatly about your experience and product. As always there is room for improvement and with each day we do try. Once again, thank you for allowing us the opportunity to see our show through the eyes of our guests.

The show is not bad, the 4 actors really seem into it. They are quick with funny comments and make the most of it. The audience interaction is OK, albeit a bit much.
The parts we did not like is the waiting. Check in is 4-420 (for our Sunday show), which means you first have to wait in a long line as only 1 person is taking payments and giving tickets.
Then you have to wait for your number to be called, a very inefficient process. It’s not professional. Then, in small groups, you are guided to the room where the show takes place. Salads are already on the table.
The whole process from entering the lobby to the show starting took about 1.5 hours, way to long. Would be easy to make this less painful.
The show, as said is OK. The 2 breaks also take a bit long. As such, the whole ordeal makes the 45 minutes show take 4 hours. Not bad, but not worth it for the money.
We have done many dinner shows in Orlando, Medieval times is much better, or the pirate show.
Food was OK, server was friendly.

We go to Sleuth’s every time we are in the Orlando area and enjoy from beginning to end. The shows are smartly written and masterfully acted. Family friendly – no offensive language (some innuendo but in a fun/comedic way, PG rating). The actors engage the audience and encourage you to play along which is a lot of fun. The food is wedding/catering food – nothing special, but absolutely fine and one less thing to worry about on vacation. We are there for the show, dinner is just an added bonus. And we are never, ever disappointed. Absolutely worth every penny – go! You will not regret it.

The prime rib was good & worth the money. The lasagna was liked by everyone. You must like Ricotta cheese. The only problem with the meal is they gave you the salad & then you had to wait until intermission to get the rest of your meal. They TRULY gave you all the drinks you could want.
The play acting was well done. We had 2 out of 8 guess the murderer correctly. They had adults from the audience involved in the play. I had asked to see if our acting granddaughter could do it but she couldn't. They did honor birthdays.

We were staying overnight in Orlando on our way to a cruise and we’re looking for something to do with our 15 year old granddaughter since it was raining. We found Sleuth’s on trip advisor and made the last minute decision to go. Luckily for us they had a few remaining spots open when we called. The show was such fun trying to catch all the clues and solve the mystery. We sat with another family and we enjoyed meeting them and working as a team to figure things out. The food was really good. We have been to several dinner type shows and Sleuths had the best food by far. I had the Cornish hen, my husband and granddaughter had the prime rib. We all really enjoyed our dinners.
The cast was funny and engaging. Especially Constable Connie! I highly recommend going when you are in Orlando. We definitely will go back!

Exceptional show! The actors engaged the audience in all aspects of the show from the beginning to the end. We enjoyed the character Flo from the audience. She was so funny. Great food and ample free parking. Very nice gift shop.

Our dinner to Sleuth's was a very good choice for me and my honey. We sat with others (socially distant), connected with the actors before the show. The food was exceptional so, I ate it. The mystery dinner was a true 'Who-dun-it' spoof . We laughed a lot. Met some good people and enjoyed the time spent together.
