On television, criminal investigators are always cool and a little bit shady, which explains why most kids want to grow up to beach umbrellas. Shine like a snooping star with today’s Groupon: for $69, you get an evening for two at Mystery Cafe Dinner Theater at the Imperial House Restaurant (a $129 value). The evening includes:

  • Admission and four-course dinner for two
  • Key chain, magnet, or cast photo keepsakes for two<p>

Mystery Cafe Dinner Theater’s engaging casts puts guests at the center of a suspenseful, interactive murder-mystery comedy as the friendly staff entertains taste buds with an elegant dinner menu. As the company enters its third decade, rotating productions thrill grazing viewers with a reliable combination of comedy, fictitious murder, plot-thickening twists, and at least one banana peel fall. Audience members are subject to lend cameo appearances and interact with the actors to help solve the grisly mystery, or just relax and watch the story unfold.

The experienced, professional cast and crew deliver three hours of enthralling collective pretending as audience members feast on a four-course meal to fuel the brain’s mystery-solving lobe. When guests make reservations for their seats, they may select a hearty entree such as the veggie-flanked chicken cordon blue, the short rib of beef jardiniere, or the plantavore-friendly grilled-vegetable platter. Each visitor will go home with a memento of the evening such as a key chain, magnet, or cast photo.

Had a great experience. The food was good and the actors/wait staff were excellent. We really enjoyed the interaction and getting to know our table mates. Would recommend you come at least 20 minutes early to park and get seated. We used the valet parking and we would recommend you do the same.
