It was fun, acoustics were good and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.
May 2021
On Mother's Day, May 9, 2021, 10 women went to the dinner theater for the first time. We had a great experience. The ages of our group went from about 30 to 75 and the play was fit for all. It was funny but certainly not offensive. If it were a movie I would say a PG rating. The theater is in a building that is connected to the Eagles Club so we could enjoy a cocktail if we wanted but dinner was a buffet with coffee and water on all the tables and the food was delicious. Turkey/dressing. potatoes, Swedish meatballs, salads, rolls, fruit and i know i am forgetting something. We were each handed lightweight plastic gloves so we were able to serve ourselves. The tables were socially distanced and they had our table set up so we could all see and be at the same table. i would definitely go again as it was a reasonable price, dinner was good, not stuffy as we could go into the other room and get a cocktail to bring back to our table. Even that was very reasonable. i hope you enjoy it as much as we did.

Lovely theater!

I went to see Bermuda Avenue Triangle with a few friends, and we absolutely adored the show! Great actors with lots of talent— they will have you laughing all day long. The show was a comedy but also included sweet and tender moments that brought tears to my eyes! Wonderful production all around— not to mention the food was delicious! 10/10- I will be back!

Fun outing with girlfriends
Sep 2019 • Friends
This place is located in a strip mall adjacent to an Eagles Club. (Adding that bit of info to directions would be helpful.). It’s not a fancy venue. Everyone is seated at long tables. With reservations, you are seated in groups. The meal is served buffet style and offered plenty of variety. You can purchase alcoholic beverages at the Eagles Club which is joined. The play offered plenty of fun laughs and was quite an enjoyable afternoon! I would definitely go to the next performance.

I've been working with the staff at Day Trippers Dinner Theater, for over 3 years, I'm very impressed with Bill the owner, who is always enthusiastic with all his shows, his willingness to create the best show every time he launches a new production shows me he cares about his company, staff and clients. Bill's positive enthusiasm inspires me to create the best marketing campaign for his upcoming plays, its hard to find people with true dedication and commitment like Bill, that's why his theater company is one of the best in Minnesota!

Hard to find...
Dec 2018 • Friends
This place was very hard to find...kind of hidden. Lunch was fine -like a church buffet but plenty of choices. The actors needed microphones . The songs had very fun lyrics. The singers were adequate.

The theatre can be hard to find. The problem is that GPS takes people to the wrong location, causing lots of confusion. The acoustics in the theatre are very good and sound projects well. Thank you - Boll Kenzie

Disappointed
Dec 2018 • Friends
The food was not very good, our table was the first table up to eat and the food was cold. The pork was real tough and not much flavor, should of filled up my plate with more salad. The play was okay. Second half seemed kind of long was starting to fall asleep. Don't think I'll be going back.

Not much I can say about your response except it falls into a distinct minority of people who visit our theatre. Good luck on your theatre travels!

Bad sitting arrangement
Dec 2018 • Friends
There needs to be a better seating arrangement so all people can see the stage. Those sitting in the back have a hard time seeing the stage. It is no fun to have to keep moving to see around the people in front of them. Otherwise enjoyed the play.

Thanks for enjoying the play. There is a post in the middle of the theatre that causes a sight-line problem to those in back of it. We have stopped seating people behind the post. Thank you - Bill Kenzie

Drinking Habits II

We were delighted with Drinking Habits and also with the sequel Drinking Habits II. We're looking forward to Ain't Retirement Grand, and glad to see they have opened some spots for Sundays.

Great Playhouse
May 2017 • Couples
Although this little gem was very difficult to find, once located in a little strip mall, we found it to be an amazing concept put into action and would be able to be replicated as well in different communities! A small and talented cast, a delicious plentiful buffet with multiple options, set created at one end of Eagles Club meeting space, included a full bar. Wife Begins at Forty was very well done.
Not a play I was familiar with, but entertaining nonetheless!!! Community Education brought bus loads of audience members from Mason City, Iowa!
