“High school choir trip”

Bissell Mansion Restaurant & Murder Mystery Dinner Theatre
Attraction details
Reviewed 7 April 2017 via mobile

100 students and chaperones enjoyed a very entertaining evening here. The food choices were varied enough to satisfy everyone: fish, chicken and beef Vegetarian plates available, too. The food is like a regular banquet, not gourmet "high dollar". It was tasty and I ate everything . But Im not a picky eater. Some kids barely touched their plates, but teens can be that way. The entertainment staff was prepared and enthusiastic and involved so many kids and adults. Speaking parts were given to those who wanted them. Quiet ones could opt out of speaking parts. There are several innuendos that were salty enough to be funny but not offensive. The history of the mansion was given to me and my friend after we expressed an interest. Down side, old houses are hard to heat and cool. Our end of the table was right over the air conditioning vent. We got really cold, but had fun anyway. Our choir kids laughed, cheered, screamed, and applauded through the entire evening!!!

Thanks so much for bringing your group. It sounds like they enjoyed the evening as much as we enjoyed having them.

I read a bunch of the negative reviews for this place on the way there. And I can say that they are all bull****. The parking is safe, with great security looking after your car while you were there. The actors are professional. If there is a person reading lines off a piece of paper, it's probably because it is a dinner eating guest that has never been to the dinner theater before, and they're part of the fun. A great place for birthdays anniversaries for any event. Safe and good food. The steak is great!

we had a group of 12 go to the murder mystery dinner theatre and planning a return trip in July when they have a different mystery. Bissell Mansion has a nice variety of entrees and the appetizers were yummy. Enjoyed the evening and the interaction with the actors.

My friends and I went here for my best friend's birthday. It was about 10 of us. None of us was driving we had a limo. The food was awesome. We all got to wasted to participate but the hosts remained professional and understanding. We had a great time, I would definitely go back.

A fun evening that I would like to repeat when they have a new show.
One of the actors wrote the show, "It's a Wonderful Murder". Good fun and humor. Cash bar available. Dinner was good with 3 entree choices: meat, chicken and fish. Love that they are using this 1828 home for this purpose.

Most of the parking is on the street with steps to walk up. I believe you can drop off someone in the small parking lot at top. If someone in party has trouble with steps, I would check on this. Restroom was also on second floor. Surrounding neighborhood is rough, but we had no issues.
