It was a great show! Amazing talented dancers and singers. The food was very good also – truly enjoyed the corn chowder.

What a pleasant surprise. My wife found the Dutch Apple in a travel pamphlet and made reservations from our hotel. It was a small challenge to print the tickets from the hotel, required for admission. The food was good although the Shoo fly Pie left a lot to be desired. The theater production was Swing and the cast was excellent. Definitely one of the better dinner theaters.

My wife and I attended the dinner show on Thursday evening. The service was fast and attentive. My wife had prime rib, ordered medium rare and it was cooked perfectly. I had the chicken dish and it was tender and tasty. The show was “Swing”, a music/ dance review of music from the swing era. The band did a good job as well as the singers. The swing dancers were very good and the show had a lot of energy. A nice evening that includes a great meal and show.

GREAT show (Swing). Very lively, toe tapping, excellent singing and dancing! The show is worth the trip!
The buffet was so-so. The chicken was very dry and tasteless, but the beef was pretty good. The desert table was delish!
It was a full house so the service was very slow. We cleared our own dirty dishes from the table, and waited a long time for iced tea. They might need more help, but who doesn't these days!
EXCELLENT TALENT! And the orchestra and the dress attire was WONDERFUL!

My husband & I recently went to this dinner theater as an anniversary celebration. We’d never been here but were visiting Lancaster so thought we’d try it. We were impressed. We saw Swing! The cast was great. The singing & dancing was wonderful. They all looked like they were having fun. The food was also very good. The place was clean, seating is all good (no obstructed views), and the desserts were wonderful. The servers were very attentive, however, we were never offered the soup. The guy bringing the soup around neglected to ask us if we wanted any, but we had plenty to eat so didn’t complain. I’d definitely go here again.
