One of a Kind

This is a great theater dinner restaurant in a medieval setting. Take you back in time with the whole medieval theme, food, and action. One of a kind setting too.

This has got to be the best experience in Old Town. The food...while good...should ot be the reason for visiting Mediveal Madness. It is basic. It is what the guilded class ate 600 years ago. The "show" is fantastic. While it may not win any Tony awards, the cast put their heart into the show. And, they try to incorporate... More

Reserved on groupon for my vacation with my 15 year old who loves this stuff. When I called to reserve I got an answering machine saying they'd call right back. They called 2 days later. I called back the same day and was asked why I hadn't booked earlier that they were normally booked 7 days out and she couldn't... More

I just attended the show and dinner with my 9 year old son. We both loved it. We went to the Friday 5:00 show so it may have been a bit more tame than the later shows. There was nothing in the show that was too inappropriate for a 9 year old. If you do bring an young one, I... More

I have now been many times- (the story changes about every 4 months) i have had such fun in bringing different friends- dressing up- awesome food- and great entertainment. The duke and dutchess (as well as the rest of the cast, to includ phone staffers) never break character- absolutly delightful. I love the education provied of the swords-man-ship history and...

I was able to get discounted coupons through Groupon and we went as part of my birthday celebration! Didn't know what to expect, but had read some of the reviews (good and bad), so decided to not have any preconceived ideas. We had a really great time! I would return and pay full price. Someone complained that there were no... More

We enjoyed our first experience the first time and came back again (in March) to find the experience was just as enjoyable as the first. The only thing that changed from my first review in 9-28-12 was the script, which they change every 6 months, and that you don't need to remember to bring salt as that expensive item in... More

I purchased two discounted vouchers via AAA Member Deals for $29 each. (Regular adult admission price is $59 each). I called to reserve a spot and found that Friday and Saturday nights fill up many weeks in advance, so I settled on a Thursday evening. When I called, the woman that answered the phone never broke character and always addressed... More

We went on a Sunday afternoon, because of the information on their website that said it was a show that was toned down for children. I even asked when I made the reservation if it was appropriate for a ten year old, because I didn't want to buy tickets otherwise. I can hardly imagine what their other shows must be... More

My hubby and I love going to dinner shows. So I had big expectations when I came here especially with all the raving reviews. But this one was a sort of a let down. The setting is in a dark long hallway type room that is dressed with medieval decor. Every staff member spoke in Old English and dressed their... More
