"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.

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!

I decided on attending Dolly's "Dixie" Stampede after hearing great reviews from friends. I laughed a little that they gave in and took the word Dixie out of the name. We arrived early to watch the pre show. Music was fantastic and the men doing the pre show were entertaining. We were escorted in to the main show. Seating is tight, but not overwhelming. For those of you with anxiety, it's not unbearable. The food was fantastic. I was aware before the show there were no utensils which was fine by me. (If you have a problem with eating with your hands this is not the show for you.) We were served vegetable soup, cheese biscuit, cornish hen, pork tenderloin, half of a potato, corn on the cob and an apple turnover. We had a peanut allergic person in our group and the venue was very accommodating. The show was good. It was basically races with one side of the venue against the other. Horses looked well taken care of. The horse riders were amazing. Show is a little cheesy, but very entertaining. You exit through an overpriced gift shop...yes, I bought something!
