I bought tickets for my fiancée and 2 friends for part of their Christmas. Sounded so fun. It didn't do my research. My fault. I spent $300 for 4 people. TERRIBLE food, HORRIBLE acting, and not as interactive as I thought. We got to mingle...More

I was expecting some actors to carry all the performances, but was really surprised that except for the Knight MC and the owner, all the performances were done by dinner guests. This is a fun place to visit, the food was plentiful and I even...More

This was, without a doubt, the worst dinner show my wife and I have ever seen. Food was mediocre at best- miserable at worst. If the staff considered the performance as acting- I hope they have a day job. I could have lit 2 one...More

This evening will be what you choose to make of it. The food was barely average--not even as good as Mama's so-so meals. And you can tell that their food budget is not huge with cheaper cuts of meat and boring, low-cost appetizer. But the...More
