The Dinner Detective Murder Mystery Dinner Show, the largest Murder Mystery Dinner Show in the United States, was voted 2010 "Best Dinner Show." The Dinner Detective was founded on three simple ideas: NO hokey costumes, NO lame scenarios and NO campy dialogue. Therefore, by having the setting be present day and by hiding our actors among the customers, we leave everyone to suspect who is part of the show and who is not. Each ticket includes a four course meal, show, prize, a 2 hour harbor cruise on board an authentic paddle wheel boat and so much more.
