What You'll Get
The best part about going to a murder-mystery dinner is knowing for a fact you’re being lied to, instead of always suspecting it. Justify yourself with this Groupon.
$99 for a four-course murder-mystery dinner (up to $169.88 total value)
- Two general-admission tickets
- Two t-shirts
The Dinner Detective's cast of sleuths and servers dish up a four-course meal alongside a helping of mystery spiced with impromptu humor. Guests arrive to mingle, sample hors d'oeuvres, and begin questioning their fellow diners as the dressed-down cast circulates freely in the crowd. A tossed garden salad and a shocking murder send people scrambling to tables where they work to uncover the killer, who could be any one of the guests or a sentient saltshaker. The story unfolds between courses. For the entree, diners choose from grilled breast of chicken, seared lemon tilapia filet, or house made vegetable lasagna roulades. A chef's choice of dessert rewards the night's trials as the crook is revealed and the guest with the best guess takes home a prize package. See the schedule for available shows. Iced tea and coffee are also included.

About The Dinner Detective
The Dinner Detective's renowned troupe of talented actors engages audiences with an evening of laughs, intrigue, and suspense with modern plots and no campy rehearsed lines as mock murder accompanies a four-course meal where everyone in attendance is a suspect. A dressed-down cast of professional Hollywood- and Chicago-trained sleuths circulates through the crowd, sniffing out phony alibis and asking the hard questions to solve the mystery of each whodunit. Before the night is over, the fictional criminal is cuffed and the most accurately detecting diner takes home a prize package.
The Dinner Detective leases out its gumshoes to clean up crime during private events such as fundraisers, family reunions, or embezzlement hearings. The thespians have sharpened their entertaining chops by performing for such Fortune 500 companies as Universal Studios and Walt Disney Imagineering.
