"Great Family Experience"
March, 2019 NEW
We have never been to a dinner show before, so we didn’t know what to expect. I’m glad this was our first experience! From the time you get to the doors till you leave the staff was very professional and friendly. We had a party of five that included my wife and me with a 4-year-old, a 3-year-old, and a baby, and we all felt entertained—maybe not the baby. The food was good but pace yourself because you get allot of it. We definitely plan on going back again.

Tip: Don't eat all of you food when it starts to come out becuase more will be coming, and you can take the left overs home. The parties are seperated by booths, so while there is allot of people there, you still have your own little space.

"Awesome!"
March, 2019 NEW
For three of us, this was our second time. But, for one of us, it was the first time. We all had a great experience, loved the food, and definitely LOVED the show! The horses, the lights, the fire, the EVERYTHING was just awesome! We also had good customer service with the reservations. We had to add a ticket last minute and the representative made sure to request our seats together. No complaints about the whole thing!

"Wonderful Show and Wonderful Food"
January, 2019
I have been going to Branson regularly for 17 years. I just went to Dixie Stampede for the very first time to see their Christmas show. It was absolutely fantastic. I went there thinking I would probably leave there hungry, but I was totally wrong. I could not believe how much food we were served and how great it was. I will definitely be going back!

Our family enjoyed both the show and the food. I have a teen and pre-teen and was not sure how they would feel about the show, but they really liked it. The food was plentiful and filling! I would recommend going at least once!

Reviewed March 20, 2019 NEW
Went with my 9 year daughter. She loved every second of it! From the pre show, which I wasn’t sure she would relate to the older bluegrass sound but she clapped along and then her eyes lit up when a bluegrass version of Baby Shark played! She was amazed by the horse show and stamped her feet and cheered the whole time. Even now she does not stop talking about everything she experienced there. Thank you for making this a special Birthday gift. We will be back next year.

At the stampede you get a fun preshow of country singers that were entertaining. A HUGE meal. Be WARNED no utensils! Cornish game hens, a slice of pork, corn, soup, potato and a dessert. Yummy, but you eat with your fingers! They provide hot towelettes to clean with. The food is brought to you. The main event is horses trick riding, dog, chicken & pig races. A patriotic show. Very interactive with audience participation. . Big and little folks enjoy! You can see the horse barns on the way in. Negative..they do not say there is pork many do not eat pork for dietary or religious reasons. There should be a warning. Also, 2 meats was a lot. They do give take home bags. Also, they take pictures and there was pressure to purchase. Overall a great experience. We have been before and always enjoy. Great value for your money. We will return highly recommended for families.

Pending review We had a really wonderful time at Dolly's Stampede. We arrived early after reading previous reviews. The pre-show was fun. We really enjoy bluegrass music, so it was right up our alley. The seating for the show isn't a specific seat...you are given a row and then just find a seat on that particular row. The food was tasty and you are given a huge portion. A whole Cornish hen, thick slice of pork, half a baked potato, corn on the cob, a biscuit, creamy vegetable soup and an apple turnover for dessert. WOW! You aren't given utensils...so if you don't like eating with your fingers that is something to think about. The show itself was a lot of fun. Very interactive. We so enjoyed the patriotic aspect of the show
