Always enjoy going to the BDT, have seen many shows there! Intimate theater with great actors, the chicken cordon bleu is delicious with mashed potatoes and veggies. We also had a tasty coffee-ice cream mud pie that was yummy! It's great having the actors serve you and make it a more personal experience. Will continue to go back.

We were guests in a family gathering of a dozen or more seated at four separate, but contiguous, tables. Being a dinner theater, smaller tables are the norm. Dinner and a play are a package deal so everyone there came for dinner and came for the play "Thoroughly Modern Millie." The dinner choices are very limited, but the salads, entrees,... More

We saw "Thoroughly Modern Millie" and I must say the talent and production were wonderful. Dinner was good and considering the price and number of people served at one time, it was actually better than good. It was a perfect way to spend an evening and we anxiously look forward to their next production.

Our group took in THOROUGHLY MODERN MILLIE and honestly I think you'd have to drive to NYC and take it in at Broadway to see similar talent. This was outstanding in so many ways. Catch it while you can as it runs through February, I believe.

Went to an evening show and paid extra over admission ticket for the prime rib dinner. Had it before so it did not disappoint. The show was good as usual and coffee refills kept coming. Wife is an annual subscriber so she knows the process. I understand management changed up the menu somewhat after this but the prime rib is... More

This is not where you go to get a great meal with your entertainment. At best, the food is one step up from a frozen microwave meal. The entertainment however is spot on. The play choices and the actors do an amazing job. I was told as soon as moved here to check this place out and it never disappoints... More

It's been awhile since we had been to the Boulder Dinner Theater, but it is still a fun place to go. You go there for the theatre and the fun, not the food so I'll start there. The cast and the music were as good or better than any of the other shows we have seen there. We went with... More

Cast good great service. Food not the best but you are there primarily for the show. Sat at a table for two so we were not "squished in" like other reviewers said. All in all a good night out at a reasonable price.

Our party of three, which included myself, 28 year old son, and 89 year old mother in law, attended "Footloose" at the BDT after not being there for many years to see a play. The food was every bit as good as it was in the last- delicious haddock and the renown Chicken Cordon Bleu. We have always reserved a... More
