I went to DDP last night for dinner and entertainment. It was a great evening. Leisurely, delicious buffet dinner, great show-side seating (no bad seats) and terrific performers.

Really enjoyed the Footnotes, waiters and waitresses who doubled as pre-show entertainment.

The Web of Mystery show was nice too. Warning: the theatre was very cool. Be sure to bring a sweater or jacket.

I’ve been going to DDP since I was a teenager. This is my first year having season tickets and I am loving it. This place is really a bargain: dinner and an intimate play for less than the cost of most of the tickets to a show at other theaters. The buffet selection rotates with each show. There’s always a stellar salad bar with really fresh selections and some type of carved meat. Fries chicken is also a staple, although it’s not as good now as I remembered it being as a kid. The programming is diverse, from kids shows to musicals to murder mysteries with a bunch of other stuff sprinkled in between. I’ve seen probably 20 shows here and never had a bad experience. There’s not a bad seat in the place, even if you are on the top row. Service is excellent. Drinks (other than tea and coffee I believe) and dessert are extra. Usually we share a big brownie sundae because it’s a special night out. Can’t recommend this place enough. Take your significant other, your friend or your family. It’s sure to be a good time for everyone involved!

Located within minutes of downtown Louisville..this is one of the few remaining dinner theaters.

Food is better than anticipated. Served buffet style. Desserts are table served.

Nice atmosphere for an oldies concert.

A nice all inclusive night out.

A very good value

Overall this place runs like a well oiled machine. We bought our tickets online. We went to the door, they immediately pulled our ticket, seated us and took our drink order. The buffet is of pretty standard fare although potatoes au gratin is a nice departure from the standard mashed. The salad bar could use more freshening up during dinner service but overall far exceeds expectations.

The service was exceptional in spite of the sold out crowd. Because of all the factors involved, I'd encourage generous tipping if you are pleased with your service. The preshow entertainment of The Footnotes are also servers.

This is just a fun thing to do that's out of the norm. Enjoy the show!

My family and I went recently to see their production of The Little Mermaid. Not only did we have a very nice buffet dinner but we had a wonderful time seeing the show. The ticket price included the dinner and basic drinks but if you wanted to add a desert you were able to do so for a very reasonable price. I really liked that their brought these out during intermission. All in all, it was good food and a fun atmosphere.

About a year ago, I heard about the great shows at Derby Dinner Playhouse. I had been as a kid and loved it, but was scared I had outgrown the plays at Derby Dinner.

I decided to try it anyways, although I thought it was a bit pricy. Boy, am I glad I did. The show was fantastic. So much so, I changed my mind about the price. The show and dinner is defiantly worth the price!

My husband and I have not missed a play since and are now season ticket holders! I can't recommend Derby Dinner Playhouse enough. I spread the word whenever I can because I truly believe it is the best thing to do in Southern Indiana.
