The food was excellent and the show was awesome. so much fun.
Show was great fun and food was very good. Really enjoyed the whole evening. Arrive an hour or two early and enjoy shopping in the neat little town.
We had the best time, the dinner was wonderful and the mystery was entertaining and had our party trying to figure out who done it.
The food was absolutely the best! The service was even better. We enjoyed the friendliness of the staff, and willingness to box up the two meals of the couple who was unable to attend with us. Loved the silly play. The scenery left something to be desired, however. I realize you have no control over where the train travels, but, being very new to the West we're from New Hampshire I was expecting more of the greenery and beauty I have seen in other parts of this area. However, I would absolutely do this again. Very enjoyable!
Mystery was fun and well acted. The steak was very rare and had to be sent back 2 times, but the waitresses were very accommodating, even bringing out the chef.
Fun time! Good food.
The food was excellent and the entertainment fun and amusing. The scenery was hit and miss but some was very pretty but the murder mystery pretty much kept our attention anyway.
