My sister and I visited the Chanhassen to see Chamelot on the last Wednesday of its showing. I would have given this 5 out of 5 if only there was a bit more "wiggle" room between chairs. Food - Tasty and reasonably priced. A decent selection for the price. The desserts available for additional cost looked fabulous! The only reason... More

I just attended with my two teenage daughters and both my parents. We had the dinner before the show and enjoyed it all. The ambiance of the building is neat and the stage is large! The meal had several items to choose from for the initial price you pay. The menu also has some additional food items, appetizers, alcoholic drinks... More

This is a long standing dinner theatre. The play (Camelot) was excellent, very professional actors. The meal was good but not great. Very friendly staff. Prices are reasonable. Definitely worth a visit.

If you are looking for a fun night out, and one which isn't so ordinary, then the Dinner Theater is for you. Something fun to do, the food is good and it is basically an historical landmark. We enjoyed drinks in the bar before sitting down to dinner and a show.

Camelot was terrific, actors/musicians/costumes all terrific. And the food was even really good and beautifully presented. The serving staff was amazing. The whole experience was so smoothly produced. Bravo!!

Last show we saw was Beauty and the Beast. The show was fantastic. Food was just okay, pretty bland. Definitely go for the entertainment though. Also be sure to explore the whole building, some neat old space to see.

I took my high school drama club to Camelot at Chanhassen and they all loved it. Dinner was a hit and the kids loved the $5 souvenir sodas. The show was fantastic with excellent staging, performances and sets. The kids were inspired by the experience.

For as many times as I've been to Stevie Rays Comedy Cabaret (which shares the same building), this was the first time I have been to a play in the Chanhassen Dinner Theater. We saw Camelot, and it was lovely night from start to finish. First thing, the tickets were comps, donated by CDT to volunteers who rang the red... More
