Murder Mystery Dinner: So Much Fun!!


On Saturday night I went to a Murder Mystery Dinner with my 15 year old daughter, at Vaudeville Cafe in Chattanooga TN.

The show we went to was an “Italian/Redneck Wedding”, and we had to figure out who killed the father of the groom.

Every time I’ve been to Chattanooga and passed by the Vaudeville Cafe, I’ve wanted to check it out!

Unfortunately it was never showing at a convenient time for me – until this past weekend. 🙂 We picked the 8pm show (the Italian/Redneck Wedding) and walked over with absolutely no idea what to expect…

It was a pretty full house, and they served an all-you-can-eat buffet style dinner – and also served dessert halfway through the show. Fortunately they did have low carb options: turkey, chicken, green beans & salad. 😉

The show was family friendly too, and there were quite a few families there with kids of all ages.

The actors walked throughout the audience and talked to us before the show started, giving us a chance to get to know the characters on a more personal level. They were dropping hints about their character to help us figure out “whodunit”. Between Rednecks and Italians, it was quite a riot – lol…

The entire show was very interactive. I can’t remember the last time I’ve laughed that much or that hard over dinner! We had SUCH a good time, and would definitely go back again!

    Dinner sounded great. I had a feeling that they would serve something decent. Figured that low-carb would not end up an issue. Usually those dinner theaters go all out (from what I have heard/read in the past)

    It sounds like it was really fun 🙂

    I’ll have to see what is local here in central Florida.

    I think when the Belleview-Biltmore had their Mystery Dinner, it was a more of a formal adult dark-setting, fancy dinner type of thing. Less funny, more intense. More like a deal where the guests start believing it is real. Also in an old, haunted hotel….it was probably a bit scary….lol.

      That sounds fun too! This was definitely more of a laid back “comedy club” feel. The atmosphere was great, and all the guests and staff alike were very sociable and friendly. It made for a fun time!

    I’ve been to one on a River Cruise and they gave Champagne to the table/ tables that won. The actors interacted with the guests throughout the show. The moonlit view from the River Boat was awesome!
    In my area they had Murder Mystery Dinner train rides and Spaghetti Warehouse used to have them Dinner and a show $20 was a fantastic deal and night out! I wish they still did them.
    I love them- they’re so much fun. I’m glad you had a great time!

      Thank you Kathy! I wish there were more like that in my area. I am going to do some looking and see what all I can find within 100 mile range. 😉 Definitely worth a little road trip for such a fun night out!!

    There’s one in Williamsburg VA thinking about it for a date night with no kids. (The website is Little worried about the food choices though. It’s a “choose your dinner” type of menu, kind of like when you RSVP to wedding and you check a box for beef, fish, chicken or vegetarian. Reason #1 for not taking the kids, the only choice on the “kid’s menu” is chicken fingers and fries. Very limited.

    There’s a more flexible option over in Virginia Beach that has a murder mystery weekend that looks so fun! ( I’m patiently waiting for them to post the 2012 dates hoping for something near my anniversary.

      Oh, that would make for a fun anniversary date! There were two couples celebrating at the one I went to, and several birthdays – be prepared to get called out. LOL. Thanks for the links, too!
