Owned by superstar Dolly Parton, this 35,000 square-foot arena is home to one of the best dinner shows in town. The night begins in the saloon, where appetizers and cold alcohol-free drinks spark the evening. Next, you are off to the auditorium for the show (complete with 32 horses) and a four-course meal. The dinner starts with homemade creamy vegetable soup. Barbecued pork and rotisserie chicken are the main course, with corn on the cob, homemade biscuits and herbed potatoes as sides. Dessert follows, and you can drink all the tea, coffee or soda you can handle.
Felt rushed when it came time to eat. servers were practically running down the line putting food on the plate. We felt like cattle being herded when leaving cause only exit was through the gift shop!! just another way to get you to part with your hard earned money, same with entering they take your pic so later a girl comes around to ask if you want copies for $25-30.
We saw the DS Christmas show...what a night, first a pre-show featuring a very talented juggler then we were ushered to the main theater ,where our server (Aaron) got our drink order. The rest of the evening just blurred into great music, great horsemanship , great food & a lot of laughs. One drawback..the seats weren't comfortable, but all in all a fabulous experience.
We are an older couple and we attended alone - no kids or family. All the staff was very friendly and helpful. We enjoyed the pre-show which was a juggler. He was very entertaining and very good. We thought the food was extremely well done and tasty. We were stuffed. The seating was good. Everyone can see everything. The show was very well done and a lot of fun. It had a lot of variety. We would go back again. We recommend this show for the whole family -ages 1 to 99.
The 1 thing I would recommend is to add a "mutton bustin" segement for the kids as part of the North vs. South competition part of the show. This would be very entertaining for all.
First of all, there were NO UTENSILS!! Second of all, this was a RODEO not a "show". Third, the food was terrible. Our waiter just ran by and threw hard small rolls on our plates then soup (no spoon, of course) then threw a chicken and a very small piece of ham (?). I was under the impression that we had a "choice" of chicken, ham (?) or a vegetarian dish (there was none). The apple pie (?) had no apple in it just flaky roll.
Good grief, even back in the 1880s, the chuck wagon passed out eating utensils! $100 wasted. There needs to be more clarification in the ads for this place (like "this is a RODEO and you will eat with your hands...no utensils).
Years ago, did you ever go to Holiday on Ice ? This is similar to that
only on horses. The pageantry is beautiful, with gorgeous costumes.
I wasnt sure what eating in a horse arena would be like. But it was
immaculate and clean. There is no dust in the air etc.
The atmosphere is fun. The waiters make sure you have a good time.
There's plenty of food, and its delicious. The staff that greets you is in these wonderful
southern belle dresses. Get your photo taken with a cowboy ( extra $)
There's a pre-show you attend- You can also get snacks here ( extra $)
It was a whole nights entertainment. Afterwards, it was such a beautiful
October evening, we walked up and viewed the horse stables...which must be very pampered horses, because they were very nice.
We had such a fun time. The food was good (soup, biscuit & pork tenderloin were favorites from teh meal). Oh & the seasoning on the potato was good & so was the corn. So really it was just the chicken that I wasn't crazy about. It tasted a little gamey. Anyways, great preshow - juggling comedian was funny & our son loved drinking from his boot cup that we got for him. This show is one to make sure you see when in Branson!
This is the greatest thing to do in branson. I was thinking ok we are gong to see some horses. ya right by the end of the night your hands hurt so bad from clapping, your throat hurts so bad from screaming, and your legs hurt from stomping, but it is all worth it. Your will have so much fun you wont want it to end. This is the most fun me and my family have ever had ever....
Trust me pay the price and see this show!!!
This was a great. I enjoyed every minute I was there from the pre-show to the end you are entertained from the time you walk in until you leave . The food is great . Be prepared to eat with your hands and at the end the very helpful staff will give you a wet nap to clean your hands on . The wait staff here are great . They wade on 30 people but my beverage glass was never empty for long .
My Mother & I attended the 8PM show on 6/14/2008. We had a great time, the food was excellent and some of the best we had during our stay in Branson. We both had fun eating with our hands, watching the show and taking in all the sights. Their performers, costumes and servers are all top notch and considering you'd spend approximately $25 for a show and a nice dinner separately, the $50 price per adult ticket seemed worth it. The pre-show was great but be prepared to pay for drinks during the pre-show since drinks are only complimentary once you are seated in the main arena for dinner.
