Loved the show and the food and our server did a great job. Just a great experience. Parking was a little tough because the early show had not let out yet, but you'll want to come for the entertaining pre-show. What a fun evening.
My 2 yr old was scared at the beginning but he warmed up after the sound effects calmed. You are given whole chickens, corn, potato wedge, pork loin slice and an apple pastry. They pull the crowd in to interact with the show and had the crowd laughing. Prior to the show they also had a juggler that started the entertainment. This place does not offer alcohol so don't go expecting a night cap after dinner or during your meal. This was a great family experience with lots to look at. It had a large crowd during each show so we had to have our 2 yr old sit on our lap as his free entrance didn't come with seating. The values of the show brought everything together.

We brought our kids for our first family vacation. The people were very nice, the horses were gorgeous and the food-delicious! The show is fun and interactive. My kids liked that you have to use your fingers as utensils. We will most assuredly be coming back!
Although I had seen the good reviews for this show, given that it was in Branson, my expectations were pretty low. I have to say I was SO impressed! I will go back to Branson just to go to this show again. The arena itself is amazing, the show is highly entertaining, and the food is actually very, very good. I am a vegetarian and got the vegetarian meal offered. It was very good. It should be noted that they do give people eating the vegetarian meal plastic silverware, which is definitely needed since it is a pasta marinara with vegetables. As for everyone else, I would bring along your own plastic silverware. My meat eating husband, who can't stop raving about his meal, was a little grossed out having to use his hands to eat the chicken. My two-year old sat on my lap and it was so nice that she was free to get in. Given her age I was a little worried she would get restless but she remained entertained the entire show. The wait staff is great and keep things running smoothly throughout the show (our waitress Kerry was phenomenal!). I have actually never seen wait staff working so hard, refilling drinks, etc. I would hope everyone would tip them as they would with any other meal. I noticed some older people leaving the show before it was over so they did not have to tip. Pretty sad. My only advice would be to do the earlier, 5:30 p.m. show. Parking was super easy for us. When we were leaving our show at 7 p.m., the people for the later show were having problems finding parking. Also, there were no seats left for the pre-show when we arrived at 4:40 p.m., which caused us to have to stand with absolutely no view of the opening act. Next time I would skip the pre-show and arrive right at 5:15 when they allow everyone to go into the main arena. Whoever is running this show is doing a great job. I have seen almost every show in Vegas and I would have no hesitation ranking this show far above any of those.
