This was great fun! An interactive who-done-it mystery show where you try to solve several murders that take place right in front of you while you eat dinner! The actors were right at our table and WE NEVER KNEW IT WAS THEM! Plus the food was good. Nothing fancy, but they accommodated all of my food allergies without hesitation. It... More

Sorely disappointed. We had this booked as a company holiday party. At $80/head, we spent over $2,000 and the service we received was HORRIBLE. Our dinner orders were placed weeks before the event. There was a mixup with the dinner tickets before we started, so we all got the wrong meal tickets before dinner was served, chicken for pork, etc.... More

Hey Shawn, Sorry the service was so bad the night you came to the Dinner Detective show. People really do have a good time with us normally so that is awful you didn't get the normal Dinner Detective experience. Did you pay for your own ticket? We'd be happy to reimburse you for your portion. Best, The Dinner Detective Milwaukee... More

Don't go to this! We spent $246 for four people and basically all we got was a rubber chicken dinner. It was so incredibly disappointing. There was no stage, no costumes, no special lighting, no production value at all! It was like being at a wedding dinner in a big room where a couple of junior high kids get up... More

A friend and I drove up and attended the show on Saturday at the Hyatt. It was our first time attending the event. It was a blast! We had a four course meal selected when we ordered our tickets. The chicken dish was amazing. The dessert was phenomenal. Best of all we had a great experience. They incorporate guests into... More

This was my first experience with an interactive dinner theater, I absolutely loved it. They used actual members of the audience for the actual play. It made us laugh and kept us guessing. One draw back was the down time between sets. We had a four course meal which was very good. You pick your entrée ahead of time on... More

What a great show. Two of our 5 guests were called on and particiapted fully as characters in the play. The real actors were good at improv in that they 'played well with others'; When a guest was into it, they played along, and when a guest was not interested in participating, they still asked them a few questions (as...

We havent been on a date night for a while and decided to give the DInner Detective a try. First what we didnt like... The dress code on the web site is not even close to what they allow in to attend. There were jeans, sneakers, t-shirts, wrinkled sweaters, cargo pants to name a few. Sadly the men were the... More

Took my niece as a surprise birthday gift- a young teen. We had a blast as she was "cast" as one of the suspects. Food was okay but the interactive entertainment was enjoyable
