Fun little show. Food was better than fast food and not as good as a restaurant. Overall, edible with no complaints! Drinks are strong. Fun little place with a dance floor and bar. Spend a few moments there while the crowd clears from valet.

Fun event for $30; I would have been in TEARS had I paid $60. The 'play' was actually comedic interactive improv and lots of people were laughing and enjoying the expereince. Think of this as going to see 'Rocky Horror' back in the day when folks...continued

It was well worth every penny. The food was great and the experience was one of a kind. The cast was brilliant and very engaging. Will definitely do it again.

Slap stick, way over the top, Hams and no hope of an Oscar for this troup of characters. On the other hand, no effort at all to acheive more. Your part of the show, Introverts will not likely fit into the mood, so I suggest you be seated out of...continued

The food was great, the venue was intimate, and the actors were professional. The only thing that sucked was that there was some rude customers who would not be quiet throughout the performance and that really killed the night. The producers...continued

It was good food and light hearted fun at a time when we need a laugh! Cute, funny and lively! Dont sit in a corner or away from center stage! We did get placed there and wished we'd had better seats for viewing!

The "event" consisted of a meal with surrounded by a bunch of (possibly) talented young actors/actresses spouting lines they thought were clever and cute.

We left after the dinner, which was reasonably good (we skipped the dessert just to get...continued

This was a mystery in the form of a murder. The characters were also our waiters and waitresses. They said their lines while engaging and incorporating the audience into the story playing silent character for the most part. Overall I'm only giving...continued

It was a fun evening of entertainment. The cast was very funny in a zanney comedy production. Service was good, provided by the actors. Food was okay, not great but good.

This event is always fun! I've been to the Mystery Cafe three times now, for different shows. We have always enjoyed the hilarious story lines and baffled by the mystery of the who-dun-it murder. The food is so-so.. but the show is great!...continued

The show itself was entertaining overall. It was a little hard to follow with multiple people playing multiple roles. Two of the women actresses looked the same and one of them played their multiple roles where you couldn't really distinguish...continued

Did not enjoy it at the level I thought it was going to be like in the advertisement. Had some moments of laughter but overall not that enjoyable. Dinner was good
