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 at the Courtyard Minneapolis Downtown, or we can bring a show to your home, business, or venue anywhere in Minneapolis, MN.

Took the wife out and thought this was a neat idea. Didn't take long for suspicious things to start happening..As soon as we arrived we got accused of being an... actor in on it, which I thought was suspicious. I ended up being pulled in the mystery and all the clues made me think maybe I was the guilty one..Food was good and the show was outstanding..read more

We had a great time! It was fun and the food was good. We didn't figure out who the murderer was, which is great. Really nicely put together and superb acting!

A friend took me to The Dinner Detective for my birthday and we had a great time! The mystery was fun, and the clues were complex but not unsolvable. The... actors were all great and the hosts were friendly and helpful. The detectives in particular were fun in character while being personable. Dinner itself was fine - comparable to a wedding or dinner theater. Will definitely be back!read more

My mother and I attended a Dinner Detective show and we had an amazing time! I don't remember the last time I had so much fun and laughed so hard throughout a... dinner theater event. The show was very well scripted and provided lots of audience participation which made the night fly by. The service and food provided was delicious. We will definitely be back for another show very soon!read more

A super fun experience, entertaining, funny and worth the price. It's amazing how the actors aren't following a script and basically come up with their words... on the spot. It was a good and easy interactive experience, and they didn't make you feel embarrassed. Very well organized. Actors did a great job getting everyone into it.read more

Amazing experience! The show was super funny and me and my wife got a kick out of it! Food wasn't anything to write home about but I didn't go to Dinner... Detective for that! Solving the mystery was a lot of fun and I'll definitely go back next year, when they change the script!Absolutely recommended.read more

Very fun show. It was held at the Courtyard by Marriott downtown. (just off 35W) It wasn't difficult to find. It's near the Theatre in the Round and a bar... called "The Republic", which I went to after the show and was quite nice. Parking was very easy. There is a ramp right there. It isn't free, but I prefer to park easily and pay a few dollars rather than search for a free place to park and then walk 6 blocks. The Metrodome stop for the train isn't too far away, but it is a few blocks. It's a viable option if you want to take the train.It was different than I expected. I was expecting one of those cliche "who done it" like you see on TV in mansions, kind of like clue. It wasn't that at all. It was interactive. It also is a very funny and interactive show. The actors are hidden among the audience It is the audience's job to figure out who did it and why. It seemed like stuff randomly happened, but everything tied together nicely. I really enjoyed it. If you're wondering about content, it isn't raunchy. There were a couple things here and there that you couldn't put on network TV 25 years ago. If I had to give a rating, I would say it's a PG-13 show.The food was really good. It isn't Michelin star food, but the food was very good. It's hotel food, so think food you would eat at a wedding reception. They also have a cash bar for alcoholic and soft drinks. Prices on drinks were about what you would expect for that kind of venue. It was very good and this justifies the cost. I thought the price, at first was a bit high and was reluctant to get tickets, but my wife wanted to see it. I thought about it and realized you get a show AND a good 4 course dinner. If went downtown to a play and went to a nice dinner beforehand, I would spend way more than what I spend on a ticket.Overall, I would recommend this. I had a great time and had a lot of fun.read more

This show was fun and entertaining. We enjoyed trying to solve the mystery and interacting with others at our table and others in the room. You can just watch... if you want, but I don't think you will enjoy it as much if that is your tendency. I didn't find the answer to the crime to be as clever as I would like. There are many clues, but the actual resolution was not as intertwined as the clues.I'm a little on the fence about the price of the show. It was $69 per person and the wine was $9 a glass for a relatively inexpensive flight of wine. The food was better than I expected from the reviews, not great, but not bad either. Having said all that, we would go again.Warning for this location: There is not much parking at the hotel. There is valet parking, but it was full when we arrived. Other nearby parking was on the street and was full as well.read more

It was fun. I would do it again, if it was cheaper. For 2 it was $160. If I could do it for half the price again I would.
