America’s largest interactive comedy murder mystery dinner theatre show is now playing! Solve a hilarious mystery while you feast on a fantastic dinner. Just beware! The culprit is hiding in plain sight somewhere in the room, and you may find yourself as a Prime Suspect before you know it!

Join us for an event that is very different from a traditional murder mystery dinner show. Our actors are not dressed in costume and are hidden in the audience! This results in a fun, social and interactive evening suitable for all adults.

Each ticket includes our signature award-winning murder mystery dinner theatre show, along with a full plated dinner, waitstaff gratuity, and plenty of surprises during the show.

Hosting a party or private event? We specialize in custom private events for companies, groups, and organizations of almost every size! We can host your event onsite at our public show location, or we can bring a show to your home, business, or venue anywhere in Cincinnati, OH.

A roaring good time. Seating is 8 to a table. Warming, the chicken is chicken Parmigiana which the website didn't specify. Fellow table member had the pork and... it looked good. Himy, check Groupon for a better deal.read more

We had a great experience with The Dinner Detective at a private event. The team was very flexible and catered the whole show to our needs; even including... corporate lingo. The actors planted within the guests are a great addition to the show. The improv is great. The actors very quickly pick up the feel for the audience and build recurring theme throughout the night.read more

This is one of the best times you can have around here, especially where I'm from...dull as dishwater Dayton. I thought it was great fun. This couple at our... table who seemed like real weirdos...turned out to be in the show. The woman got up and slapped the man right across the face...WHAT FUN!!! My husband liked the dinner. I thought it was sub par, but I still think for the price, this is a 5 star evening. The actors were great, and no I wasn't drunk, I just appreciate people with a sense of humor.read more

I bought our tickets, and then read the reviews. Went into this show so to speak worried. What I experienced verses the reviews. If you are an introvert not a... dinner/show for you don't waist your time. Now for those that don't mind being called out so to speak on the spot, and help with the show. Yep this is one heck of a show. The actors do a wonderful job on improve. My tip for them was then suspect package as they did a great job including the one I selected in advance. In my opinion if you decide to partake in on this show you won't be disappointed, money well spent. Some folks that leave reviews again in my opinion that left bad reviews weren't cutout for this entertainment. If you are looking for this kind of fun, sorry introverts not a dinner for you. I believe this was money well spent, and am sure in a few years we'll do this again. Thank you guys for the show.read more

Caters to drunk audiences the best. I did have fun but the clues given were extremely easy albeit I did design escape rooms. The actors did do a good job,... there is no problem there. I do think it would be better if there were more clues spoken that just given a QR code and reading the clues where really only one "article" helped get the answer. It is fun but I think it could be a little more difficult.read more

Show was tons of fun!! The actors are fabulous. The staff was great. Celebrated my husband’s birthday & he didn’t stop laughing! BUT the entrees just weren’t... that good to be honest 👎. We had the tilapia & it was ok. It was served with Mac & Cheese and tasteless green beans. The salad was alright nothing special. The desserts were very good. If the food was better 5 ⭐️read more
