At least once per year, we go to the playhouse for dinner and the show. It is hard to be real critical because it is such a fun evening but there are some minor difficiences. The show is great fun but we have seen some better shows. The food was good but we have had better meals in this type... More

This was an enthusiastic musical put on by a group of talented young people. I think they were mostly college kids and they were really good.

They are rude, the food cold and the show sub par. The owner does not keep her word and I would tell everyone to pick another place to spend their money because this place is NOT worth it.

Worth our money for an evening of dinner and entertainment! The new owners have listened to their guests and made great improvements since last year. We attended Klondike Kalamity, a melodrama, this year and were quite pleased with the show. The actors/actresses were hilarious. Crowd interaction and ad-lib were reminiscent of years past and truly made the show. Young children... More

I saw Cowpokes and Petticoats at Macks Inn Pinecone PLayhouse. The actors were talented and did the best they could with a very slow, boring and outdated stage script. I'm sure my great Grandmother would have liked this play. I, on the other hand, did not. I could barely stay awake! I'm speechless the owners would pick a play reminiscent... More

Thanks for coming to the show. I' m so sorry that you didn't enjoy Cowpokes. It has been well received by our audiences this summer and especially these past few weeks! Some people love HeeHaw! We will keep trying to win you over and keep you awake! Kind regards, Lisa Carter 208-558-7871 More

What a wonderful time we all had together. We have 2 teenagers and a college age who was home for a visit. I wanted to do something that I thought everyone would enjoy so I booked a cabin and we had dinner at the playhouse theater. Everyone had so much fun. The play was so entertaining and well done.

Have gone to Mack's Inn before, so we were really disappointed with the changes. New owners, new meal (not as good), different talent. The actor's singing was great, but other things detracted from them. For example, after dinner and before the show, they now pass a hat asking for tips. We were shocked. The prices have gone up, and then... More
