The show was absolutely spectacular, and the food was delicious. I had the Chicken Chanhassen and my husband had the sirloin steak. Dessert was a turtle cheesecake ... So good! It was a thoroughly enjoyable evening!

The dinner theater is tiered and has handicap seating. Call the Chanhassen Dinner Theater and they will help you with seating. You'll have a fantastic time.

We have a very large group (30-40 people) going to Vegas in July and thought a dinner theatre might be a fun thing for everyone. Any thoughts?
