The food was average. It wasn't stand out but it was ok. I had the Chanhassen Chicken Dinner. It was chicken breast, wild rice mix, and a sauce on top with some carrots and beans on the side. Soda is extra charge for a beverage....More

I’ve done the dinner and show option a couple times and am always underwhelmed by the food quality. The service is hit and miss. I’d highly recommend the show but buy the ticket option that doesn’t include the food.

This is a true dinner theater with tables and booths for dining and watching the show. We saw Sister Act and it was very funny and true to the story. Great experience. Food was not as good as I thought it would be though.

Took my family for Christmas, we all enjoyed it. The cast was great, the show was a little campy at times and there were no songs from the movie but well worth the price.

We attended Sister Act and really enjoyed the Show! Great music! Our tickets did include dinner, however I'd probably pass on the dinner option next time. Limited selection unless you want to upgrade for a fee to another entree. Appetizers, dessert and drinks are also...More
