Better Drinks, Revamped Menu!! – Went several years ago and had a good time, finally found what they call "virgins"(never seen the show), and decided to break them in. They were from out of town and they LOVED it. We did recognize that the bartender became the jester, but he pulled off both roles. We'll bring more new friends back...plus they dropped the price to 25/adult. Great Deal!!
Tons of laughs! – If you like dinner theater then this is the one for you. Great service, terrific drinks great show, and the food was wonderful. I would recommend this to all my friends. I have been to a few dinner theaters and this one is the best. The best show and the best food by far!
Questionable experience; poor bartending and gutter humor – My whole family went for my sister's 50th. With my mom being ultra-conservative, we called for more info about the show. We were told it was "PG" at the most, and was appropriate for all ages. Children under 2 were free.
The show was full of tasteless puns. "Master Bates" was one character. Both of my children are under 2. One didn't even get a plate of food or a beverage, since we brought a jar of baby food and bottles. We were charged for both of my sons. $12.50 for an 8-month old who didn't do anything but smile and play.
The food was bland and tasteless. There is no menu. You get a vegetable chowder (ours was scorched), baked chicken(mine was undercooked), baked potato, steamed veggies, and cheesecake. The wench wouldn't exchange my undercooked chicken, and apparently the whole batch of soup was scorched, which stunk up the place. Salt is only provided by sending a woman, and only a woman, to kneel on one knee and beg for a little container of salt. Pepper is on the table in a shaker.
Some of our drinks were poorly made, and they refused to remake. My thought is if you order a $17 drink, it should be made correctly. My sister (the birthday girl) got charged for her order and, upon checking with her bank, another table's charges of $160. She is still trying to get that money back.
My suggestion is, for anyone wanting to go to Royal Dumpe, put your mind in the gutter if you want to laugh. Bring your own salt. Stick with the beer. Expect bland food. PAY CASH. Leave the young ones at home.
