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

We went to see Grease again. We saw it last time it was here in 2006. Good as always. The food is really good also. We had great seats too.

This was a wonderful comedy improv show! The performers were so quick at coming up with funny lines on a topic or a very funny skit created from words or topics from the crowd! They made sure the comedy was "family friendly" since there were many teens in the audience. We all laughed the night away!

For a Period Piece, There’s Nothing Hotter than Chanhassen’s “Grease” By Blair Reynolds On opening night most directors sport their newest ascot or designer suit. For the president/artistic director of the Chanhassen Dinner Theatres a weathered black leather jacket does the trick. And why wouldn’t it? The opening being celebrated was for Grease, a show with its Burger Palace Boys... More

great performances, poor food, they don't seem to be able to handle the large numbers of food, tepid is a good choice for temperature, beverages, and deserts (extra) are good, but the rest of the meal is fair. Many selections available, but maybe ordering something cold would be best.

Grease was on stage! The music itself gets you going. The play was great as was the food & service. We've been to shows on other occasions & they do not disappoint! You need to be on top of it when tickets go on sale. We had ours three months in advance.

My sister and I visited the Chanhassen to see Chamelot on the last Wednesday of its showing. I would have given this 5 out of 5 if only there was a bit more "wiggle" room between chairs. Food - Tasty and reasonably priced. A decent selection for the price. The desserts available for additional cost looked fabulous! The only reason... More
