My husband and I went last night for Valentine's Day, since our Valentine's tradition is doing cheesy stuff in tourist town that we'd never otherwise do since we live in Orlando and typically try to steer clear of Kissimmee. We basically chose Capone's because we thought it would be funny to go and because there was a 50% off coupon online, but we both ended up having a great time! The staff was fantastic, they were all in character the whole time and were all friendly, helpful, and attentive. It seemed like they really enjoyed what they were doing and they really helped to keep the overall vibe fun. The show was funny and the acting was good, corny but intentionally so. The food was fine, not unbelievable but nothing to complain about. I feel like some of the other reviewers mistakenly thought they were going to see a realistic rendition of The Godfather complete with entrees from Del Frisco's, which is just ridiculous. It is what it is! And for what it is, it's good. With the coupon on their website it was only $30 each, and for a show, a buffet, and unlimited free booze, I thought it was well worth it.

The only reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5: When we arrived, there was a huge line outside. We ended up not having to wait in it at all because we booked tickets online, which was awesome, but we very nearly got in the back of the line because we didn't know what was going on or where we were supposed to be. We just luckily happened to see someone in a costume in the middle of a bunch of people that looked like he was handing out tickets, so we asked him. I don't know if this is how it always is or if it's because it was Valentine's Day. It also took a super long time before everyone was seated and the show began, which wasn't awful for us since we were seated early and were enjoying interacting with the cast inside, but would have probably sucked had we been in that line for well over an hour. We also didn't leave until almost midnight, which I wasn't expecting. But again, maybe this is just because it was Valentine's Day, and it didn't ruin the night.

Al and the gang thank you for the great review. You were correct in your assumption that Valentine's Day being such a busy day did slow down the evening. Our first show ran late which in turn hurt our timing on the second show..

I took my wife to see the dinner show. We arrived early and had a cocktail on the upper level. The cast were playing their parts and it looked like an interesting evening. We were taken down to the dining area and were served beer and wine. We finally were called to go to the buffet table. They had a good mx of dishes to choose from but the most of the food was dried out and tasteless. We used a coupon and paid $30/person instead of $60/person. If I had paid full price, I would have requested a refund and gone somewhere else. The show was entertaining and vey funny. Overall we enjoyed the evening.

I am sorry that you were disappointed in our food quality. We are in the middle of a reorganization of our kitchen staffing. Al is hiring prep cooks so we can eliminate all frozen food.. We are also adding a carving station which will eliminate slicing meats early in the day and no more holding meats in warmers.. If I can do anything for you please contact me at johnkucik@aol.com

The actors are playing their parts from the parking lot to the end of the evening. You need a pass word to get in. The picture the make is funny and worth the money. After dinner the show starts. The actors are entertaining, good singers and energetic. The story is easy to follow even for us non English speakers. Enjoyable evening.

Lots of fun for the family and friends. We have been more than once and it doesn't disappoint. The food is just OK but the fun is all up to you. We loved it and the cast in the show cut up with the audience. Some of our kids and grandkids went with us the last time and they really enjoyed the show. The wait staff is attentive and fun to cut up with as well. Free drinks during the entire show keeps the fun rolling. Overall a great place to spend the evening.

This is definitely worth the money. If you don't mind sitting next to strangers, the entertainment is good and the food is great. Plus unlimited drinks including alcohol! can't beat that!
