We went to watch Camelot, which might not have been the best choice for an English family visiting the states. It was a good experience, but my sister and I were the youngest there by around 20 years. Staff were very friendly and the food was OK. It wasn't the best play I've ever seen but the experience of dinner... More

Wow wow wow! It was a mind-blowing experience! Wonderful, friendly staff that makes you feel very welcome. The show was pure magic. Food was great. The only downside was the booth...it was a tight fit..but other than that...it was FANTASTIC! I definitely recommend it...you will enjoy this once in a lifetime experience :-)

Took my niece to the Chanhassen Dinner Theater to celebrate her recent college graduation. The musical was energetic and the singers had great voices, but I would have preferred a cleaner version than the PG-13 one we watched. I did not like that they used the Lord's name in vain more than once, used the middle finger multiple times, as... More

I went thinking I would get a decent show and ok food. I was pleasantly surprised. The show was very good and entertaining. Even my teenage boys, two which don't like musicals, enjoyed it. The food was also very good. I had a fish dish, which I enjoyed completely. The service was excellent and pleasant. The seating was comfortable and... More

The Performance area is good, we had good site lines but seats are not overly comfortable. Arrive early and enjoy a beverage in the bar or on the patio. The food left a bit to be desired. Paid for upgrades, Prime Rib was so tough and stringy that my steak knife would not cut it. Appetizer arrived our table within... More

To say I love the Chanhassen DT is an understatement. Before the show, we came early and had a cocktail in the lounge, which is like an old-fashioned study, complete with fireplace. The meal was fabulous-both the food and the service. The show was amazing. The performers were stellar, and it was so much fun! Highly recommend!!!

We attended the evening performance of Grease. We thought the cast was outstanding, full of energy and very talented, especially for a regional theater. All of the people working at the theater were very pleasant and accommodating. Our booth, #524 was perfect. I started the meal with a bit of trepidation, as I thought the quality of our entrees would... More
