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...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...More

While the whole idea is fun - the execution could use some work. The premise of joining a Duke and Duchess in their castle for dinner is pretty cool. The venue is well done, but the execution is a bit lacking. The show is entertaining...More

The food was fair, but nothing special (I assume that this was “authentic” for medieval England, though, as I doubt that cooks in the middle ages were all that great). What you really pay for is the show, of course, and the chance to yell,...More

Great fun. Food is excellent. The staff is great at both serving patrons and entertaining. One of the best selections of beer in the area. A great night out for a special occasion or just a fun time.
