A holiday tradition for our family. There were 25 of us this year! Everyone loves the horses, dinner, and amazing show! We go early to see the horses in their stalls and get good pre-show seats in their carriage room. Dolly isn't there in-person but the riders and servers are super nice like her. A good value and treasured time.

February, 2015
I loved the Christmas show. It was magical and it even snowed. The food was hot and delicious.and the drinks (non-alcoholic) flowed freely. The waiter was quick a me efficient. Don't forget to tip as they worked really really hard. We will be going back next time we visit Branson for their regular show.

"Dixie Stampede Chrismas Dinner and Show Great Family Fun"
January, 2015
We had a great time at the show!! The food and service was great. For the pre show there was a juggler. He was amazing, funny, and offered good, clean family fun! We enjoyed him as much as, if not more than, the main show. Fair pricing, but would like better parking or shuttles.

Tip: Be prepared to eat with your hands and if you don't get there early be ready to walk through the parking lot

"Phenomenal experience!"

I was reluctant to go to this at first because I thought I would be surrounded by children but I’m glad I was pushed to go by my wife. Not only was the food excellent but the show was a blast. There was a fun musical preshow in the lobby before the main attraction and it was very enjoyable. While we watched the musical banjo performance, my wife got a drink in their signature boot. Although it’s a fun drink to have, it’s much smaller than we thought. I would definitely not recommend it with anyone on a budget! The show itself was fantastic and had a great pace. At no point did I feel like it dragged too long and it had a little bit of everything. There were people riding horseback shooting a bow and arrow for the boys, princesses that looked beautiful floating from above, cute little animals for children, even a small sports game show-like component for the competitive spectators. With all the pyrotechnics and lights, it was truly a spectacle to behold. The food was not only a fun novelty, but quite good. Their soup is so good that they sell the powder at the gift shop so enough said there. The chicken for me stole the show. There was no silverware for us so I felt like I went back in time in a primal age where I was tearing into a small chicken. The seasoning was perfect and it was so juicy! Overall, I would recommend this to everyone of all ages!

My wife had been there a few times and wanted me to see. Warm-up program was really good. Main attraction, or the Dixie Stampede, was really good but I would probably not go a second time. Very professionally done and entertaining.

"Family fun dinner theater"
TripAdvisor user rating 4 out of 5
Reviewed October 22, 2017 NEW
If you have been to a medieval dinner or similar, then you know what to expect. But in this case, the dinner was good and quite filling for even the heartiest of eaters. And the show was entertaining, with plenty of patriotic themes, will giving a bit of old west history lesson. Watching the fellow patrons compete in events was great. Get there early for the pre-show, they are vary talented and you will swear that a train is coming through town during one song.

This is a fun and exciting dinner theater. Wash your hand before going in bc there is no silverware. The food was great we even had to stop in the gift shop for a take home of the vegetable soup. The show is family friendly but if you have a little one with sensory issues this isn't the place for them. The little boy next to us was miserable the entire show from loud noises. Otherwise all other kids seemed to love the show I sure know we did. You absolutely must go if you have time.
