Was here for Newsies and ordered Chicken Chanhassen. The chicken had more skin that it should have and after peeling it off all the sauce came with it. A small piece of chicken was left on top of a scoop of wild rice mushy stuffing....More

Excellent, well established. Popular dinner theatre. We have attended on occasion since 1968. Food fine, staff is very efficient.

We drove four hours (two up and two back) to celebrate the birthday of twin 14-year-olds. Our waiter was amazing. The food was delicious. The show was fantastic. It was definitely worth the road time to have this experience.

Have seen numerous shows at Chanhassen. Good shows, good food and good service. The chocolate cake dessert is worth trying.

We are sorry that the show wasn't up to your expectations. NEWSIES has received almost 100% positive reviews from the professional critics in the Twin Cities, so we are sad to hear this. While, yes, we do have a very different set-up from a high...More
