“Can't Believe the Quality of the Performance!”
Reviewed October 24, 2013

As dinner theaters go, this is the best! The overall production quality is better than most national tours and rivals some Broadway shows I've seen. Acting, singing, costumes and sets were top notch and they even used live musicians instead of the canned music you sometimes find at this type of venue. We've had seats in front as well as toward the rear and sound quality and site lines were great either place. Food is decent but nothing to write home about and the selection is fairly limited. You can buy tickets just for the show and skip the buffet if you want to. Haven't done this, but the seats look comfy!

“Pleasant Evening”
Reviewed October 23, 2013

Great show at the Dutch apple. We saw "How to succeed in Business". Very professional, cannot see how Broadway can be much better. The actors were great, a variety of backdrops and scenery (very quickly changed), and a great sound system so you can hear every word.

Plus, dinner. Standard amish buffet stuff, but how can you complain about that? Price is great, we will be back!

“great show okay food”
Reviewed October 22, 2013

We have been to the Dutch Apple many times and the shows have always enjoyed the performances. The shows are frequently family friendly. The food however leaves a lot to be desired. It is definately not worth the money that you pay for it, and although there is always a significant older crowd at the theatre, it is very difficult to maneuver around the tables and the buffet area. definately see the shows, but buy the show only tickets.

“Menopause the Musical”
Reviewed October 4, 2013

Wow, great night, plenty of food, many choices. They let us in earlier than the scheduled time, which made it very nice. The performers were excellant, they made me laugh every time they spoke and they worked super together. My ribs actually hurt from laughing so hard. They were so true to form when it comes to the changes that women go through, there were a few men in the theatre, and I saw that they were laughing as hard as we were.

“A Wonderful Evening”
Reviewed September 24, 2013

Good food, service and great entertainment. Saw opening night of South Pacific and couldn't have enjoyed it more. The acting and singing was right out of Broadway. A most enjoyable evening.
