WE returned to the Gandy Dancer Theatre for the third year in August and once again the show and employees made for a great night out. We traveled from Pittsburgh PA for the Elvis tribute show and it's a great family friendly atmosphere something that is hard to find these days in any venue. Staff is very friendly and pleasant. The dinner provided was suitable for this kind of facility and the cost value is very affordable if a family is attending together. They have a variety of other shows which we have not seen yet but as luck would have it we won a return trip to another show as they have a drawing at every show for future events. We will be returning in the future to take advantage of the gift. All in all good wholesome entertainment.

A visit to this venue was a pleasant surprise. Although my visit was part of a prepaid bus trip and therefore had no knowledge of the actual cost it was a five star performance. These performers are star quality and should be playing larger national venues. My only negative comment was the quality of the food.

My first experience at The GDT was the Christmas Matinee Show. We loved the show so much that before we left, we booked for the following weekend to reserve a whole section for our big family. Their energy on stage was contagious and performance was phenomenal. If you are looking for food, I highly recommend the Prime Rib from The Steer Steakhouse located right next door. A great one stop shop for a couples/family night out! Kid friendly as well.

Spectacular!!! This is one of the best shows I have seen in a long time. The band was great and so were all the singers. The young lady who sang was just incredible to say the least. A well deserved standing ovation!!! There was not any dancing during our two hour show just a variety of people singing songs. We had the dinner before the show and it was very good. I highly recommend this to anyone who loves live music.

If you haven’t attended one of the Gandy dancer dinner theater shows, I highly recommend it. We took a group of about 32 people and a good time was had by all! The food was decent, and the show was marvelous! We saw the tribute to musical greats and the performers were talented, funny, and engaging. The meal when we attended, consisted of chicken cordon blue and ground beef steak accompanied by green beans, baked potato ,coleslaw and rolls. They had an awesome lemon tart for dessert. Everything was hot and fresh. Don’t miss this dinner theater if you’re in the Elkins West Virginia area.

The show was very very good there is a great deal of talent on that stage with singing and dancing story telling. They get the audience involved with what is going on on the stage with their singing to get you to sing along with them. The outfits are awesome. I know that this is in Elkins West Virginia but I feel that this quality of talent and showmanship that these entertainers rank up their with Pigeon Forge or Branson. They have different kinds of shows to choose from. If you are looking for someplace to go for a great time and be able to take your whole family, for good food friendly atmosphere very clean, you can find it All right here at Gandy Dancer Theatre Show. So get on your phone or your computer and make your reservation for a great show or make it a dinner show and enjoy some great food to go with the great show. Call,Call,Call you won't be sorry. ( Enjoy your self )

I took my mother out for her birthday to the tribute to music legends dinner show. This was our first time at The Candy Dancer Theater. I have to admit from the time we were seated at our table the atmosphere made me feel like we were being welcome into a special family gathering like the fun was about to begin. The food was delicious, the server was friendly,and attentive. Your seated around strangers, but after a few moments they don’t seem like strangers anymore. The people we sat with actually were cast members of the upcoming murder dinner show this month.. The show itself was amazing. Talented performances from both the singers, band, stage staff, and hosts. The vocal impressions were astonishing. We had such a great time we are going to go back again next week. So If your looking for a good food,entertainment, and family fun you definitely need to check out The Candy Dancer Theater.

Nice place for a fun evening. Very nice building with ample parking. Personnel are all personable and professional. I was surprised to see our placemats were printed with last name on the reservation. Everyone has a designated table. The meal was better than I expected. No menu, but everything was good. The performances were also very good. Some singer impersonators were excellent, others only OK. All the music was live and very good. Only weak spot was a comedian in overalls that wasn’t very funny & a bit hard to understand. Also wish they had a beer & wine license. Overall, we had a great time and found ourselves clapping & singing along with songs we love.

The Musical Tribute was amazing. The cast is very talented and it is obvious they truly enjoy performing. I did not select the dinner theatre option but thought the pricing was very reasonable with or without the meal. I would recommend Gandy Dance Theatre. It was an enjoyable performance.

When our bus group arrived, we were welcomed by a gentleman who is the owner and also an actor and singer. We were led into the dinner theater to our seats, served our drinks and then feasted on a delicious supper! The evening show was filled with music from a fabulous band, actors and singers who impersonated country artists, and a duo of slapstick comedy for set changes. What I loved most were the fabulous voices of the actors, and the lively spirit of the band. We were welcomed to participate in sing-along and photo opts. This experience was truly a country breath of fresh air for me and down home hospitality.
