I would suggest on the website for The Gourmet Detective, they should add that gratuity for performers are not included in package pricing. I rarely carry cash. There were envelopes to put cash tips for performers on the table. Our table and 2 other tables scrambled to "pool" enough cash to thank the performers for a wonderful evening performance. My 5 yr grandson was included by all the performers in several times during the night. He loved it! But one table near us had no cash and felt horrible not to be able to leave tip. If it was stated on website, I would have known to bring cash...and I will know next time.

This is a very fun outing. The actors stay in character and retain their enthusiasm from start to finish. The meal should be kicked up a notch. The salad is dull, the main course -- particularly the meat dish-- could use flavor. High point is desse

From Our Editors

When the lights flicker on and off at The Gourmet Detective, there's no cause for alarm—it's all just part of the show. The interactive murder mystery dinner theatre injects a three-course meal with whimsical performers who blend comedy and drama into a vintage whodunnit. Each show transports its captive audience to the era of film noir, wrapping them into a dark, twisting narrative scored with live music from a lounge singer. The scene is set as guests mingle with the characters at a pre-show cocktail hour, then step into the seedy restaurant those characters run. When the first players are bumped off at the start of the meal, everyone in the crowd becomes equally gumshoe, witness, and suspect. Throughout the dinner, guests can either sit back and enjoy the show or gather clues by talking with the characters who serve each course between the scenes. The evening culminates in a reveal of the real culprit, as well as the audience's most inaccurate guesses.
