Worst Dinner show experience ever. It wasn't a dinner show as much as a circus than managed to get a meal on the table. The actors, bless those poor little idiots, were unable to contain the tables of chaotic drunks and disinterested fops which only...More

This was by far the best Murder Mystery I've ever been to! The cast was incredibly talented, the food and drinks were good! It was possibly the best thing we did in San Diego and we spent 9 days there. :)

We attended the "nobody's got a clue" dinner last weekend. They put on a great show. The food, however, was downright terrible. I think if they were to find a new caterer they could sell out every show and get better tips. Also swivel chairs...More

Such an awesome evening and the show is hilarious! Great for date night or for a large group. By far the best dinner show in San Diego!

What a fun evening of laughs! The show really begins as soon as you walk in, so be sure to get there by 7:30. The newest show, Nobody's Got a Clue is loosely based on the board game Clue. It is very funny, full of...More
