I choose the beef and it was good. My friend had the chicken and she could see pink, chicken not fully cooked so she wouldn't eat it. She didn't tell me until after or she could have sent it back. I would not recommend having the chicken. No one needs to get sick at an event that was meant to have fun. Please have the cooking staff check carefully that the chicken is fully cooked before serving. There may have been people who didn't feel well the next day if they at some of the chicken that may have been partially raw. I would have sent it back if it had been me. People who sell suspicious food will not draw much of an audience. The show was good and I look forward to the next adventure story.

What You'll Get

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.
