Our party of 3 thought that the actors were very entertaining. Contrary to some other reviews, we felt that the food was fine - not gourmet but certainly appropriate for that venue. Our table won the "upgraded dessert" for having the most...continued

The best way to enjoy this activity is to not have high expectations for it. Keep in mind that this is a second job for all the actors! The food was average, but then if you want really great food you should go to a really great restaurant. The...continued

we were excited to go to this Mystery Dinner because we had heard that they were fun and engaging. Unfortunatley, we found the show very silly and made no sense! How anyone could figure out who killed whom is beyond me. We left before the show...continued

Actors were delightful, as they performed, and provided table service. Chicken entree I had was excellent; however, Vegie entree my Sister had was not. So appreciated the Valet parking.

It was an ok show, nothing that special stood out comparing to the other show we've seen there, this one wasn't as good, even though several of the actors were in both. The food was still a very good deal for the price and our table won the...continued

It was definitely a great time had by all! However, the venue is a little dated and should be upgraded. Only so much can be done in/with that room.

Really enjoyed the performance. Other patrons at our table were lots of fun. Cast/servers had tons of energy- some good improv! Would definitely check out another performance when it changes. My 12 yr old daughter is dying to go next time:)

The show was "cute" but the food was not good. Also, dinner was served too late for me. Main course was around 9 p.m.

This event was really a lot of fun. Our group got picked on a lot and I loved every second of it. The rest of the people who said the food is like cafeteria food are right, but who cares..it was enjoyable and the drinks were strong.

This was exactly what I was expecting and SO much more! I haven't laughed that hard in a very long time. The venue is great, the staff/actors/cast are top notch! Live entertainment doesn't get better than this :)
