We went to see Fiddler on the Roof and LOVED it!!! Tevye was a "smaller" man than you expect Tevye to be.....however he had the voice of a GIANT. SOOOOOOOO good. Even my sister (who doesn't love plays) enjoyed the show. Dinner was great. Wish they had some less expensive choices for wine. But overall an absolutely delightful evening!!!! WOW....such talent!!!!

I've been to great shows and mediocre shows at the Chanhassen, but have enjoyed the experience each time. I'd highly recommend upgrading your entree; the basic options are OK, but some of the upgrades (IE - prime rib) are quite good. If you sign up for their birthday club (and mailing list) you'll get occasional coupons; I most frequently receive offers for show+dinner for the price of the show only.

We went for our 30th Anniversary- They treated us like we were the only people there. Rob Olson took care of us with excellent attention to all details. Great food and drinks. We felt the pricing was great for the package we got. Excellent service and a great performance. We are on the mailing list and hope to get there often.

I have been at this theatre a lot of times and every time has been a different experience. Last time I was there I saw Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat. The musical was very good, my 9 year old nephew and I really enjoyed it. The food was really good too. I had the famous chicken chanhassen and then my nephew and I shared a chocolate bundt cake with ice cream for dessert. If you like chocolate this will make the perfect dessert for your visit. Our seats were located in the upper level but the view was still good since the theatre is not so big compared to other theatres I have been to. We shared the table with two other people but we didn’t mind because they were very nice. The servers made our experience even more pleasant. They were very friendly and answered all my questions about the menu. I just found out that you can also reserve the theatre to celebrate a special event such as a wedding, a birthday or holiday party. In overall, I had a delightful experience at this theatre, just as I expected. I plan to go back there to see Fiddler on the Roof sometime in November.

Just want to say how enjoyable the whole experience of seeing Joseph and the tech coat was
From entering the theater to leaving a great time.meal was very good ,service also show captivating.thought the idea of bringing children from the audience added to the show the night I was there there was the sweetest little girl and you could sense her excitement in being involved
