America's largest interactive comedy murder mystery dinner show! Solve a hilarious crime while you feast on a fantastic dinner. Just beware! The killer is hiding somewhere in the room, and you may find yourself as a Prime Suspect! The Dinner Detective Murder Mystery Dinner Show performs weekly. We also offer private events & shows that are customized to your group with roles for your group members to play. Join us for a one-of-a-kind public or private event that your guests will talk about for months! Our show is very different from traditional murder mystery dinner shows. We hide non-costumed actors in the audience that are pretending to be regular guests. This results in a much more social and interactive evening than with other shows; you will find yourself engaged and involved to a level you never thought possible! Our shows are set during the present day and take place in real time. Over the course of the night, our costumed Detectives will uncover clues, interrogate

I bought tickets for my fiancée and 2 friends for part of their Christmas. Sounded so fun. It didn't do my research. My fault. I spent $300 for 4 people. TERRIBLE food, HORRIBLE acting, and not as interactive as I thought. We got to mingle...More

Went with my daughter and had a great time on New Year's Eve. The theater is in the Doubletree by Hilton in downtown Houston. They said the valet parking was $30, but it's on $10 if you show the theater ticket. We walked into the...More

The actors seemed to amateurish and unorganized. The story line was not interesting or enough. For the ticket price, I expected to be entertained, not just made to read clues and watch 2 guys run around waving toy guns. The food was fair and service...More

This was my first murder mystery dinner so I wasn't sure what to expect; not sure how the others do it but this one was very interactive. When you arrive you check in and get a free mug per person in your party. You have...More

I was expecting some actors to carry all the performances, but was really surprised that except for the Knight MC and the owner, all the performances were done by dinner guests. This is a fun place to visit, the food was plentiful and I even...More

This was, without a doubt, the worst dinner show my wife and I have ever seen. Food was mediocre at best- miserable at worst. If the staff considered the performance as acting- I hope they have a day job. I could have lit 2 one...More

This evening will be what you choose to make of it. The food was barely average--not even as good as Mama's so-so meals. And you can tell that their food budget is not huge with cheaper cuts of meat and boring, low-cost appetizer. But the...More
