Private Murder Mystery Events With The Dinner Detective

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 San Jose, CA.

What a great time! The Dinner Detective Murder was fun and interactive. The cast was wonderful. They kept us entertained, left us surprised and challenged.... Thank you for a wonderful evening!The food was great. It was nice to have a vegan option!read more

Everyone is a suspect so your fun level depends on the other guests. The more you interact the more fun it is. The hosts were entertaining and did a great job.... The food was better than expected althogh we did not expect that much. We found the 3 hours of the event was well worth itread more
