We drove four hours (two up and two back) to celebrate the birthday of twin 14-year-olds. Our waiter was amazing. The food was delicious. The show was fantastic. It was definitely worth the road time to have this experience.

Have seen numerous shows at Chanhassen. Good shows, good food and good service. The chocolate cake dessert is worth trying.
