We had a blast! Merlin & the wenches were highly entertaining. I can't figure out how any of the magic is done & the food was delicious! We took my son & daughter-in-law out to celebrate their b-days & they used them on stage. Thank you for a...continued

The show was OK. The food was just so-so. The one thing we liked was that the show incorporates the audience.

The show and food were quite good, but when compared to the Magic Castle at 5 stars, this was unfortunately only worth 2 stars.

Furthermore, their inclusion of a mandatory tip (almost $12) on my bill for only two people, when their printed...continued

Merlin's Magic Dinner Show at the Rib Trader Restaurant in Orange is a great choice for a family-friendly evening out.

The meal was quite good, which was not surprising as the show is within an actual restaurant (not a production kitchen, as...continued

It was the worst show that I ever been! I could have gone to a a rib joint and spent less money. The magician tricks were were like seeing a fourth grader perform them. Then after all said and done after buying the tickets for half off from this...continued

The show and dinner were adequate. The surprise came in the form of a large mandatory gratuity and refusal to return my change from paying the bill.

The magic was tricks you would see in grade school. The place looked dirty and so very old. What really put me off was the entertainer... Merlin was taking orders sitting you at your place and serving your food. What a joke for sure a B rated...continued

We enjoyed our time as there was 7 in our group and we were celebrating a birthday. The disappointed was that there were only 3 other people there and 10 is not enough for an event like this. However, our entire group participated and had fun. ...continued

This was a different event, which was the inspiration to go. However, once we arrived I was very surprised to see Merlin coming from a back room (which was the showroom)to seat my party. His costume could really use a makeover. It was a very old...continued

Okay, I have been to see this show before several years ago so I knew what I was in for. The jokes are corny, the magic is predictable but when you take someone who has not been, it's not too bad. Unfortunately, the chicken was overcooked. This...continued

If you are looking for something different, this is the place. The meal itself is worth the cost, but add the entertainment and its definitely worth it! Our table was 19 yrs to 66 yrs old but its good for all ages.

The food was adequate and certainly plentiful and the price was certainly right, but the magic is substandard unless you are a 6 year old and then you might be amazed.

The magician was cheesy, the venue was small, and the food was awful. The kids seemed to enjoy it, and they used them on stage, which was fun for them, but other than that, This show was a big disappointment. The magician also made jokes that...continued

Awesome show. The magic tricks are good and very entertaining. Some of the jokes are old and some are good and new. They give time to eat and enjoy your food before, during, and after the performances. Waitresses very helpful and friendly. The...continued
