The Boulder Dinner Theater has become a well-loved and "look-forward to' tradition in our family, especially for our grandchildren, age 9 and 12 (smart and mature, of course). We've been taking them since they were old enough to sit still when they visit us from their home in Phoenix. They were just here in Boulder for a few days of... More

My first visit to the BDT was great. The food was good, although the portions were on the small side. The staff doubles as wait staff and actors, so you get to meet and talk to the actors. The play, Fiddler On The Roof, was fantastic. The theatre was small and you felt like you were part of the play.... More

This was an impromptu visit, so we showed up just a few hours before the show to purchase tickets. It was a mostly sold out show, but the staff took us into the theater to allow us to pick from the remaining seats. When we arrived for the show, the lobby was packed. We were escorted to our seats and... More

We went to the Boulder Dinner Theater with a group of Seniors on an RTD bus. We were seated as soon as we got there and the waiters were quite quick and attentive. The lunch was very good - we had the chicken cordon blue. The play started promptly after lunch. It was wonderful!! From start to finish!! Tevia was... More

It's a dinner theater. Food is so-so. Performances can be quite good though. If you really like dinner theater, it's fine.

Even though this might not have been haute cuisine the food was pretty good. A good valve for your money, show and a meal. And the show was entertaining too!

I have seen The Sound of Music, Annie, and Shrek at Boulder's Dinner Theater. All were fantastic! The food is good, the waiters were polite, and the singing and acting was top notch. The shows run long enough that even if you are busy, you can find a night to see one. Boulder's Dinner Theater is an experience the whole... More

This Boulder institution provides fun and entertainment at a reasonable value. They have great successful mainstream shows that are proven successful on Broadway and brings them to Boulder. I do not know how they select the shows but they do a great job. The food is better than expected for a dinner and performance show. Unfortunately, the musicians sit behind... More

We arrived for the dinner and show at 6:15 and we were promptly seated at our table. The staff (which are also the actors) quickly took our order and brought our drinks, and it wasn't long before our meals arrived. The food was surprisingly good, and my chicken cordon blu was tender and filling. My wife had the crusted Cod... More

The Boulder Dinner Theater is unique. Where else can you receive a meal and a wonderful show suitable for all ages for only $50 -$60 dollars? This is the cost of a show only elsewhere. We were there Aug 22 with our son an our 9 and 7 year old grandchildren. There are 21 in the cast and they also... More
