Hi Megs!

Thank you for your kind words regarding our renovation! I have passed them along to our Executive team. We are thrilled at our hotel currently under renovation as well- the hotel will be re-opening as a DoubleTree by Hilton in early 2014!

We hope to see you at the Dinner Theatre soon!

Best,

“Wonderful dining and theatrical experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2013 via mobile

My family and I have been going to the mayfield dinner theatre for years. I find that the food that is offered and the shows that the theatre puts on appeal to a wide range of different people. I enjoy that you have a few hours to sit down and enjoy a nice meal before the show starts. The service is fantastic as well. The staff are friendly and attentive. There were times when I had gone with friends or family and it took longer for us to get our drinks but the servers would be very apologetic and set things right as soon as you reminded them of what you ordered.
The show itself is the main attraction and is why I love to go back again and again. They have a great production crew that works hard to give the shows the right atmosphere and ambiance to transport audiences to worlds outside their own. The acting is always top notch. There are many talented people who come to the mayfield from across the United States and Canada to put on a stellar performance.
Throughout the entire run of the show that usually spans 2-3 months, I found that the shows stayed consistent. The timing for lighting and music and scene changes never faltered and the actors never ran out of steam and would give the same energetic performance near the end of their performance as they did at the beginning.
The mayfield dinner theatre is a full package experience that is deliciously fun and entertaining for friends and family alike. I hope that the new people who come to discover this place come to love it as much as I have.

Show was fantastic. really well done. the food not so much. limited choices for a buffet style. was told there would be certain items and there wasn't and was told there was a strict dress code, but there were guys with jeans showing butt crack and filthy tee shirts. and we had screaming kids near us.

“One of the Best Deals in Edmonton: Great Renovated Buffet Area; Shows A Notch Above Most Dinner Theatres”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 9, 2013

Don't let "dinner theatre" sway your impressions of this dinner theatre. A lot of the performers are well-trained professionals that often give top-notch performances. I wish the theatre would change up some of its performers more. It's an ongoing criticism of this theatre. There is so much talent out there & there's no need to see the same faces over and over again over the years.

The buffet itself has been renovated since I visited the city last. It's fantastic with a better layout that reduces line wait-time. There is also a larger selection of food, especially the salads section which is amazing for vegetarians.

The theatre itself has been renovated since I visited last. It has a much more modern look. And despite all the renovations, I didn't really notice a huge increase in ticket prices.

For a dinner & show, this is still one of the best deals in Edmonton.
