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.

We love this show and the food is outstanding! Kids ages from 1-100 will love this show. It's worthy seeing every season.
Tip: Be sure to go hungry and don't fill up in the carriage room. The main meal is sooooo good!

"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

"What a Show!!!"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed October 25, 2016 NEW
We have been to Branson four times and have driven past the Dixie Stampede many times, without showing much interest. A friend of mine recommended we go to see it this year, and since I trust her judgment, I decided to experience it. And what an experience it was. There was a juggler in the "Carriage Room" who was amazing. And he performed some magic, too. The main show in the arena was beyond anything I could have imagined. Where can you go and see people singing while they are riding horses. It was stupendous and I would recommend it for all ages. The food was good, the show was highly entertaining and the talent was excellent.

First, I'll say I enjoyed the show and am glad I experienced it once. But a few things I might mention, I did not enjoy being herded through the entrance to get a photo taken, and then funneled into the gift shop where it was chaotic and no one knew what to do next. We sat around like sardines in the holding area before the show, and then an amazing juggler came out and performed, so that part was worth the wait. The Stampede itself was impressive and I give kudos to all the young people doing the stunts, etc. I thought for the money the food was not that great and did not enjoy eating without utensils. The other thing that bothered me was the fact that the show is non-stop to the point of exhausting all the while we were trying to get our drinks, figure out how to eat, etc. It was impossible to listen and follow everything that was going on. It was just to chaotic for my taste.
