We'd never gone to anything like this, so we didn't know what to expect. It was a fun evening, & though you're seated at large tables with people whom you don't know, everyone seems congenial, and once the fun begins, you're all in it together,...More

The venue is House of Blues, upstairs in an adjacent room that is set up specifically for this event. We had a good time and the Dinner Mystery definitely threw me for a loop with who the guilty person it. That being said, the dinner...More

Our family of four was in town vacationing and have wanted to try a Murder Mystery for several years now. Our kids, ages 11 and 15, accompanied us and found the show to be fairly appropriate for their ages. I personally enjoyed the show, but...More

Doors opened late which made the start of the show late. Dinner was nearly inedible and consisted of a salad of greens and a few sliced cherry tomatoes, tasteless chicken, rice cooked with celery and watery squash cooked with onion. The onion was the only...More

We had family in town and thought it would be a good time to check out this show. We have been to others in the past and always had a great time. This was by far the most disappointing. Although you can expect good food...More

2nd time here for a good evening and was not disappointed. Staff, food, and mystery once again was awesome. This a great way to relax, enjoy a good meal, make new friends and have fun. We will be doing it again.

The show did not start immediately at 7. In fact they advised to get there 1/2 hour early so we didn't actually sit down until 7:40. Overall the performers, with the exception of one seemed tired in their delivery. The person playing detective (although a...More

The show would have received 5 stars but I think $7.65 for a Happy hour 20 oz beer is way too steep. Once you get past that part, the food is good and the show entertained 2 Adults and 2 teenagers....not an easy task. The...More

It was an OK show with a decent mystery. Felt a bit rushed at the end when we had to submit our answers to the mystery.
