from Murder Mystery Dinner Show
The Great Smoky Mountain Murder Mystery Dinner Show is a small and intimate theater, perfect for the up close and interactive show it provides. Our traditional, restaurant-style murder mystery plays out all over the dining room, so every seat is the perfect seat. There are three sidesplitting, parody-style shows played in repertory each week: Moonshine Murders, The Killbillies, and Gun With The Wind. Guests are given the opportunity to participate in the mystery, either by becoming an audience actor or by solving the murder using the clue packet provided at each seat.

Your ticket includes our “laugh ‘til you die” murder mystery show with a Prize Package for the Top Sleuth of the night, as well as a three-course dinner with choice of soup and cheesecake for dessert.

Who Shot the Sherriff - NEW in 2019
Howdy Partner! Welcome to Dodge City! The Wild West can be a dangerous place, so saddle up and keep your eyes and ears sharp. Sheriff Dillon is busy as always wrangling up outlaws, and spending his evenings at Miss Kitty's Saloon. However, a lawman's job is never done. Calamity Patty has rolled into Dodge, no doubt to stir up trouble. Join Sheriff Dillon, Miss Kitty, and Doc Adams as a night full of gunslingers, gamblers, and outlaws takes our gang on a wild ride. Pull up a stump and enjoy 'Who Shot The Sheriff'!

Moonshine Murders
The Lukes have been runnin' shine for years in the Sevier County hills. The unscrupulous Boss Boar and his henchwoman, local law officer Roscette P. Ketrain, have pursued them for years to no avail. But Sevier County has now become a prime tourist destination with increased traffic, making it harder for the Lukes to outrun the incompetent law woman. It is for this reason that Uncle Bessie has decided to sell his highly sought after, top-secret moonshine recipe to the local distillery at the bi-weekly Boss Boar Celebrity Speed Trap Concert featuring Elvis. The only problem is that Uncle Bessie hasn’t discussed the sale of the family business with the rest of the family.

The evening of the concert has the whole county vying for the top-secret moonshine recipe and is full of murder, mayhem, and of course - moonshine. So grab your hats and hold on to your seats 'cause it's gonna be a bumpy ride in Sevier County tonight!

The Killbillies
Back from Beverly Hills to start a new life in Pigeon Forge, meet the Clampett Family. Jed, the patriarch of the clan, has designs on a new life and a new wife after some financial and zombie problems in California. Ellie May and Jethro are up to their own brand of mischief and hijinks, while Granny misses her California life as much as she misses her motorcycle gang. All this and more in a brand new take of your favorite characters in the Beverly Killbillies!

Seating is assigned when you check in at the theater.

"Good food and great fun off the beaten path"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed March 23, 2019 NEW
Found this place through TripAdvisor. A fun evening with lots of good laughs and food. The actors clearly enjoy performing together. One of the best "whodunnit" shows we been to. The meal was above average and the table service was excellent. Helpful hints: Book as soon as possible since the shows frequently fill up. Make sure that you notify them in advance if you have special dietary needs. Found out that booking through Trip Advisor doesn't provide this ability. They cater to diabetic, gluten free and vegan dietary lifestyles. In my case, they were able to accommodate my request for grilled chicken table side. Nearby parking is limited so plan to get there early. Show is over by 8:30.

So we’ve been to MANY dinner shows in pigeon forge TN but never managed to attend this one. It is a HIDDEN GEM! The small theatre is intimate either seating for only about 100 people. The actors are literally performing in between the tables. Great performance and food, and we will come see other shows as they rotate every day.

My whole family went during a visit to my daughter's birthday. It was great. The show was funny and the actors were great and so funny. They were even nice enough to take a photo with my daughter after the show. The food was also amazing. I can't wait to go back.

My family and I visited this establishment and did not stop laughing. I'll admit once I arrived I was skeptical because the building was not as large as I thought it'd be, but i was pleasantly surprised. The cast was humorous and interacted with the crowd. We had a homestyle meal that did taste good, I only wish it was warmer when it was served but it was still tasty. Overall great environment to bring a family, and don't let the size of the establishment fool you.
