This wonderful dinner theater venue is a bargain, both in the quality and quantity of food offered and the caliber of the performance. We traveled from North Carolina to see Les Miserables because we knew one of the performers and were not sorry! An understudy had to step into a major role and if it weren't announced before the show... More

Could not believe the level of performance that I witnessed in this Theater. Les Mis was so professionally done and was so full of talent that it blew me away. The food and service were excellent as well.It was my first time there but definitely won't be my last. The Dutch Apple Diner Theater is the best kept secret.

We have been to New York city shows but the ones at Dutch Apple have always been comparable. This show was far superior to any we have seen in New York! Very accommodating office staff, excellent show and very attentive waitstaff. Highly recommend this theater.

I have seen this show countless times, including on Broadway. I can honestly say this performance gives Broadway a run for its money. The depth of understanding and execution of character was simply stunning. Singing talent, a remarkable Blessing to Lancaster County. This is a must see for locals as well as visitors!

Just returned from seeing Les Miserables . The actors and actresses were all incredible and their voices magnificent! The performers work very hard and the level of their talent and skill is the highest. We have seen other shows here and have always enjoyed them.

We really enjoyed the show (Funny Girl ). The acting was semi - professional. We had front row seats and the music and singers were very good. The food for the Buffett was just OK. A nice variety. Roast beef, baked chicken, flounder stuffed with crabmeat and assorted veggies. The flounder was not good, roast beef was tough and stringy,... More
