The Deal

$75 for a murder-mystery show for two ($130 total value)

  • Two tickets (a $120 value)
  • Two keepsake mystery magnets (a $10 value)

While the show goes on, couples will dig into a four-course meal, complete with a garden salad, soup of the day, and an entree, such as chicken cordon blue, lemon caper chicken, beer-braised BBQ short rib, veggie lasagna or grilled vegetable platter. The show's players interact with the audience throughout the evening while attempting to solve the rib-tickling mystery.

Shows run Friday and Saturday nights at the Imperial House at 8 p.m. Doors open at 7:30 p.m. Customers select their entree when they make their reservation.

Mystery Comedy Dinner Theater

As San Diego’s oldest interactive mystery-comedy dinner theater, Mystery Cafe Dinner Theater dazzles audiences with live comedic mystery performances. Each show boasts an interactive format in which actors engage with the audience, possibly involving them in plotlines and using them in cameo appearances.

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.
