Great fun
Sep 2019
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.

Only fun if you make it fun
Jun 2019 • Couples
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

Disjointed
Jan 2019 • Couples
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.

Food is terrible. Acting ok.
Jan 2019 • 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 The Old Mill Inn is old and outdated.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

Fun and entertaining in Fair Park
Nov 2018 • Couples
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!

A great time!
Sep 2018 • Couples
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!

The worst
Nov 2017 • Couples
I was so excited a Murder Mystery dinner was coming to Lost Oak Winery in Burleson nearer to my home! I was excited not to travel so far as we have done 11 others in Grapevine, Dallas, and Houston and more. The food was edible, but not tasty. Portions were tiny, and they did not even serve bread as a filler. Event was oversold and the show and food were delayed while they set up more tables. The detective facilitating the night was rude and actually yelled at the guests for talking while he was. Maybe if he was more interesting, they would have been listening. An older lady I was seated with was shocked by his crude language talking about orgasms. Her husband was upset one of the murderers was rude to him and using F...ing words when he tried to talk to her. The whole format was difficult to follow. The acting was very weak. The story line was idiotic. The theme was witches and Halloween even though it was over a week after Halloween! This was by far the worst ever murder mystery I have ever attended! Too bad, too... Because I went with the idea I would love them and hope to book them for a private event I wanted to organize! Save your time and money and enjoy a murder mystery dinner with someone else!

This is the Producer/Artistic Director for Texas. I'm so sorry this was your experience, Susan. I was not personally there that night, but questioned the cast and crew about your comments. The Lost Oak Winery booked all the reservations and took care of the catering so we've passed along your concerns to them as well. As you mentioned, they had many more guests than expected and had to deal with the surprises at the last minute. This delayed the food and entertainment as more tables had to be added. To appease the guests waiting for dinner, a lot of wine was served. A LOT! The audience became very talkative and loudly disruptive. This lead to frustrated actors trying to get the evening back on track and our Detective acting like “a school teacher.” Having said all this, there is NO excuse for ever being rude to our guests. I apologize for my Detective. I have reminded to him to keep his cool even under extremely challenging circumstances. We never want anyone to feel as though they are being disrespected. As for one of our actors using inappropriate language with your husband, we are rated PG13. Our cast is warned to never verbally abuse any audience member, and never to use profanity. None of our actors remember that happening that night. Since they are incognito and seated amongst the guests, is it possible he was speaking to an audience member and not one of our characters? With all the wine flowing, a real guest might have dropped the “F” bomb. As to choosing the Halloween plot for Nov. 10th, I will take personal responsibility for that decision. This particular Wiccan-themed plot was very popular for our audiences during October this year and, knowing that some haunted houses in Dallas were still running as late as November 2nd, I thought it would be all right. I’m very sorry you didn’t enjoy it. We usually get positive responses for our entertainment (including the night you came). We perform at other venues in the area and hope you give us another chance. Thank you for your feedback. Best, Keith & Margo’s Murder Mystery Texas

Fun event not so hot food
Jun 2017 • Couples
This was a first for my girlfriend and I but we have to say it was very fun. The show gets everyone involved and is exciting and fun. The only bad part to this event is the food. I can say most of it was very dry and had no flavor and could use a lot of improvement. Other than that I'd say that this show is well worth going to and I would do it again.
