The set up was in a conference center at Massanutten. There were good hors d'oeuvres, and dinner consisted of a buffet of crab legs, prime rib carving station, chicken & rice, chicken parmesan, veggies, salad, bread and then chicken fingers for the kids. Cash/ credit bar was also available. This was topped off with delicious deserts and coffee. The murder... More

We had been to the Murder Mystery Dinner previously and enjoyed the dinner & show. This visit, it was just okay. Not sure that it was worth the $130 price tag for 2. The show was more predictable than the last, but we were at a fun table and the actors were entertaining. The servers did a great job refilling... More

The food was excellent. There was ample time to get to meet your table, enjoy appetizers and the meal. Desserts were great. We never had to ask for drink refills! Great staff! The play was a bit melodramatic but truly the butler - Victor was the star of the show! A man of few words, his inflections said it all!... More

This was your typical mystery dinner theater. Local actors did a good job. Humorous & personable.. the play is done right in front of you. You eat in courses... salad & horsd'oeuvres first, then the play intro begins. Next is the main course, followed by the main part of the play. A murder occurs during skit- but it is unclear... More

Three of us signed up for the dinner theater. The meal was buffet style, with a cash bar. The food was fine. The play was ridiculous, but entertaining. A good way to spend your Wednesday evening.

This was about what I expected for local theater company. The food was fairly good. There was an extended delay between appetizers and dinner. Not sure if that was planned or not. People were getting restless. They had the room very chilly even with 80 people. Seating at 6, we got out around 9:45pm. Get there early the line gets... More

Overall we enjoyed. Kids ages 11,17 and 20. Need to make reservation in advance. A bit hectic at check in but don't worry since your table seems to be pre- assigned. Sat with a nice couple and their 20 year old daughter. Food was okay. Apps were fried crab/cheese dumplings, cheese and crackers and Swedish meatball (not good). Dinner had... More

They need microphones!!! Since the actors move about the large room sometimes they are difficult to hear. They play was fun and the dinner was good. Nice variety on the buffet.
