Food was good for a buffet with dessert being served at the same time and plenty of refills. Actors were friendly. Yes, it was a little cheesy but people need to lighten up and have fun. If you get into the show and paticipate, you will enjoy it. I will return when they get a new story.

Good: The actors/actresses were friendly and likely the reason the show has survived. The show worked in some clever show references and puns if you are paying attention to the dialogue. Bad: The food wasn't good. (Recommend show only). It starts at 5 and was done by 7-- get dinner elsewhere. No reserved seating. Ugly: The air conditioning wasn't working.... More

Our family was very excited to see this show...be part of solving the case. However, our first clue of disappointment should have been when we saw the building when pulling into the lot! Food was nothing but heated can of corn, premade potato salad, already prepared meats, etc. Very low quality! The show was cheesy from the start. Very big... More

I do not know anything about the show or food. I had booked tickets until I found out that there was no reserve seating or preferred seating. All your reservation guaranteed you was there would be a place for you. Because of our age and my wife's health we do not need to be competing with 150-200 other people for... More

Cute little show. The mystery is a little cliche and somewhat predictable. My wife won free tickets for guessing who the killer was and why. They are still on the fridge and will probably not be used. The meal was far less than desirable..

We went to this show in early June. It was very hot out and the air conditioner was out. They did give everyone the option to get their money back, but most decided to stay. This show is not a good value in my opinion. It does have some good comedy and has a fun thought out plot. The delivery... More

The actors were absolutely brilliant! They were funny and interactive with the audience. I was impressed at how they work together and bring the audience in no matter what we all said! I was so disappointed when we returned to Branson and there was no murder mystery at that time. So, I will go again JUST so I can go... More

I have been to 3 of the shows and they are fantastic. The food is good. The service is good and the atmosphere is exciting and funny.

We should have left early in the performance! Wish I had read the reviews before paying to see this show...big mistake. This is not a quality Branson show. Supposed to be a family show but it had very suggestive and vulgar parts. BIG disappointment!

Our family was spending Christmas in Branson and what a disappointing evening! We left about 15 minutes into the performance (if you could call it that). It was a very low-class, sleazy atmosphere. The food wasn't that great, and I would not recommend spending the money or time going. It was definitely not what you expect to find in Branson.... More
