The Dinner Detective was a pretty cheesy show. Our group spotted the “hidden” actors immediately. I was not impressed with the storyline. Luckily we went with a group of 12 and were able to fill an entire table together. Not sure I would have liked...More

My wife and I have done a number of these throughout the years. This was ther least organized, a little slow moving, and little direction. They seemed to be trying to keep the budget low. It takes place at a Hilton hotel. I ordered gluten...More

With the Groupon discount, it was cute. Otherwise I probably wouldn't spend the money. The mystery was hard to follow and its in a banquet room. Food was good and included in the price.

My husband and I enjoyed this dinner show. The actors were funny and incorporated the audience into the show. The waitstaff was courteous and responsive. The food was excellent and the price was affordable. Remember to leave a tip because they were so good!

Actors pretty entertaining. Kept the evening moving along. Detectives really fun but I couldn't follow the "clues" distributed to each table between salad-main entree-dessert. It didn't matter if I solved murder or not-I was there to be entertained & participate. "Margo & Todd" here loved...More

The setup is a bit stange. It's in a conference room of a hotel. The food should be better and Angry Orchard beer should not be $8.50 a bottle. That being said, the show was pretty good. The "detectives" were fantastic! They really had us...More
