Be proud of how far America has come and celebrate with this homestyle dinner and show. My family and I have gone to this dinner show several times and it still continues to capture us. When you first get there, you will immediately smell horse manure and as gross as that sounds, you will at least know you are in the right spot. The horses are gorgeous ranging from all different colors and sizes. Then you will check in and take a picture before you get situated in your seats. Your waiter will tell you what side you're on (north or south) and then you'll be submersed into the civil war. This may sound intimidating but it is a good experience. The show will start and you'll get a warm soup with a biscuit. The biscuit is amazing! You will also get chicken and some vegetables all homestyle. The dessert used to be a warm apple pie. Yum! Be ready throughout the show because random people from the audience could get called down to even be a part of the show. Overall, this experience provides a trip to the past and a taste of warm, comfort foods. It is a great family experience.
I had been here once before but not for the Christmas program. The pre-show is great, and the live animals and entertainment was top notch. One thing I wish they would offer is a show w/o a meal cost attached. I do not like eating w/my fingers and the food they serve is way too much.
Over priced. Food is plain and service was not impressive. Wish we would have saved our money and time.
I've been to the Stampede several times and I'm always impressed. From the pre show to the end it's always a great time with family and great food. There will be the typical attempts at trying to sell you photos etc but that's to be expected. Dolly is a heck of a business person.
