    Disappointing
    The whole event was sub par. It started by herding us into a small room with no place to put your drink down while you snacked on the cheese and fruit. Prior to the beginning of the show the “actors” were rude to you. There was one bartender so the line was slow to move. The food was just average but it was the highlight of the evening. Once the show started there was very little to watch, just one guy telling you somebody was just killed. Story was weak and the clues were worthless. They planted people in the audience to pretend to be customers but were easy to spot. They gathered info on you which the “detective” would use to try to incorporate you into the show. Mostly they made off colored remarks about them and tried to embarrass them. I’ve been to two shows by Texas Star and they are much more enjoyable. Would not recommend to anyone.

    Only fun if you make it fun
    First time we’ve ever gone to a murder mystery party, so wasn’t sure what to expect. If you’re not a bit of a ham and really get into it, you may not have that much fun. Make up an outrageous name and cover story and throw everybody off to make it a truly excellent experience. As far as the staff and actors in the audience go, no complaints. The actors were somewhat difficult to detect until their turn was up and figuring out the mystery required some good logical thinking and ability to put 2 and 2 together. You MUST interact and mingle with people to get the full effect. The only negative thing I can say was that the food was out and out disgusting. 🤢 I couldn’t even eat what they handed to us. Also, there should have been at least two bartenders. I would still recommend this to people, just maybe bring your own dinner with you.
    You're definitely right that the best times are had when folks lean in and join the mystery madness. Thanks for leading by example! It sounds like you had a great time mingling with new friends and actors alike. Sorry to hear the food was not to your taste, but we're glad you still had a fun experience overall. We hope you'll join us again some time to help solve another case. Thank you, Keith & Margo's Murder Mystery Texas

    Very Disappointing...
    Last weekend my family and I went to the murder mystery dinner show and was so disappointed with the dinner served for the price we paid. The total with tax and tip is $63 per person. (I see why they make you pay the tip ahead of time, because you will not want to leave one on the table). That does not include a drink from the bar. Drinks ranges from $8-$12. The murder mystery and participation was fun and entertaining. It was the meal that was not worth the price at all! We were served Chicken Fried Steak, mashed potatoes and gravy and steamed vegetables. It was served cold, tasted like cardboard and the gravy tasted like it came out of a can. No one at our table finished our meal. It has to be the worst meal we had dining out. The servers really had no idea what they were doing either. No one server was assigned to a table. So they jumped around and forgot to come back to our table to finish serving the dinner plates or the desserts. The dinner roll plates got picked up before the rolls even made it to the table. Just a confused mess. The entertainment was worth the time out but the price and what you get for $63. (Drink not included) is not worth it at all. Very disappointing. I will not recommend this to anyone.
    Adunbar, while it's wonderful we had the chance to welcome you and your family to a night of mystery, we're sorry to hear you weren't fully impressed. Your disappointment is our disappointment. Since we truly want to be an evening of unforgettable entertainment and delicious dishes for all of our guests. It sounds like you simply caught us on an off night, but that's certainly not an excuse. Hopefully, we'll get the chance to welcome you all back for a completely wonderful experience. The mystery awaits, Keith & Margo's Murder Mystery Texas

Keith and Margo Murder Mystery - These are low end events that are not planned well and overpriced. They expect the customer to create the entertainment for the other guests. It is one thing to participate, but another to be the entertainment.

Would not recommend.

Three of us seniors marked this off our bucket list. It was our first time and we can’t wait to go again. When you sign in, you get a name tag. You can use your name or make one up. I wad Lulu LaRue, my friend was Bubbles and the other was Layla. We got a glass of wine and did the meet & greet. We told them we were the original Hooters girls. At 75 that was a hoot. It was fun trying to find clues and solving the murder. The only downside was the area. We took Lyft so we were dropped off at the door.

Rating it a C-. Confusing presentation, disjointed. Way longer than it should have been. C- rating on the food (+cash bar). Wouldn't return or recommend to friends.

We went to this experience due to the great online reviews. I must share that, in my opinion, the reviews are way overstated. The Old Mill Inn is old and outdated. The acting was ok and the plot was fun. The food was as cheap as cheap can be. For the hors d’oeuvres, they offered cheese cubes, Keebler crackers, strawberries and grapes. The meal was a cheap chicken fried steak and mashed potatoes. Every guest in my party cringed at eating this meal. It was tasteless and cheapened the whole experience. Plus, we asked for gluten and dairy free for one person in our party that had an allergic reaction to those ingredients, and they cannot accommodate these simple and very common requests. For the price tag, this should be a no brainer. In my opinion, this is way overpriced for the value. The mystery was fun and the acting was o.k. but it was cheap, cheap, cheap. Keep looking for something else. Not worth $65 a ticket.

We’re glad you liked the Murder Mystery entertainment but we’re sorry your experience was not completely enjoyable, Michael. The Old Mill Inn is nearly 100 years old and a registered historical Dallas landmark, so it is old but we think that makes it a good location for a murder mystery! The ticket price is not just for the dinner. The fees go towards venue, meal, tax, gratuity, entertainment and actors, but we want you to be having fun and seeing the bang for your buck. I spoke with the venue several days before the event to be sure we could accommodate your special request and a member of our Murder Mystery staff double-checked with the kitchen the night you attended. The gluten and dairy-free meal was provided to your guest. They used gluten-free pasta made from corn. Actually, all the pasta meals were gluten-free so there would be no mistakes so I don’t know why you say there was a problem with the special order meal. They provide 3 kinds of cheeses and seasonal fruit/vegetables and several varieties of crackers (though not Keebler). I will forward your comments about the ingredients to the venue. Thanks for your feedback, it will help us improve our guests’ experience. Best, Keith & Margo's Murder Mystery Texas

Attended Keith & Margo's Murder Mystery Texas for a family birthday party. We had a good time. Don't go for the food, it is okay. The wait staff is efficient and the drinks are good. The actors did a good job keeping the room of guests engaged and having fun. I especially enjoyed making up my own story!

This experience was a BLAST! I have never been to one and this was my first mystery experience. My husband and I went for my birthday, and the fun pretty much starts as you walk in. It was fun to interact with everyone and try to figure out "whodunit" The staff and actors were great. The food was decent and definitely good portions. You have to realize you're going for the experience and not the food. I barely paid attention to dinner because I was so engrossed in playing the game. I would definitely recommend to anyone who wants to try it!
