Terrible service, terrible food and boring show. Packed in like sardines. Don't waste the time or money.

Positives: The show was great. Actors were good, engaging and fun. They had us laughing at times and definitely had you paying attention. The idea of having guests play along as suspects also adds entertainment value since you never know what some of them might say or do .... In general the show was good and fun if you're into...

I was a little frightened after seeing some bad reviews. I had a great time, the show was fun, we laughed a lot and acted silky. The food was not great, but not bad. Serving size was generous. Penne pasta was yummy, and lava cake was good. The wait staff worked very hard. You didn't get super personalized service as... More

An absolutely fun time from the moment guests arrived to the conclusion of the event, the actors were engaging and all guests got involved. Preparations and attention to detail prior to the event by the Murder Mystery Company were top notch.

We recently used the Murder Mystery Company for a team building combined with dinner. EVERYONE (even those who initially had some trepidation) had a great time. The participants are still talking about all the fun. The initial prep to the actual show was simple. Thanks for a wonderful experience.

We went to the Murder Mystery Company in Jersey City. I have been wanting to do this for some time. The show was sold out. The evening was very entertaining. Everyone who went knew you had to be part of the show to have a good time. A few people dressed up and that made it more fun. Dinner comes... More

The experience itself was entertaining and the food was pretty good. The cast is lively and audience interaction is encouraged.

This is a dinner and a show. The building is several centuries old and quite nice. Seating was cramped as they had too many chairs. The food portions were too small and there were only two choices. It was just ok, but not what I would recommend for dinner. The show was silly and appropriate only for under 30's. Too... More

Do not waste your money on the "gold circle" seating ! I paid extra to wave pom poms one time during the "performance"-& get a picture- that was what the "gold circle" seating was for. The seats were so tight my Mom's seat back was against another seat back. There is no stage- there really is no performance- It is... More
