I was unsure about this dinner show after reading some negative reviews. It is a bit pricey- found some good promo codes online which helped. My family had a great time! We all loved the food which was served hot and seasoned perfectly. Yes- you do eat with your hands, it's part of the fun! My 12 yr old wants to come here every trip to Myrtle Beach!!
Initially, we got tickets for this because our sons (12 & 14) wanted to do this while we were on vacation. My husband and I weren't expecting much but decided to go with it. Make sure you look around (Google) for discounts on your tickets. I found a Groupon for it and saved a bundle. I wouldn't waste the money on the upgrade packages. Really not worth it in my opinion. We sat in the 2nd row from the top and thought they were great seats. Really not a bad seat there. Well, except the very first row by the arena floor as during the show the horses kick up sand that ends up all over the people sitting there (which you pay extra for btw). Bet their food had sand in it too. Speaking of the food, it was good. Not great, but not bad. The food isn't the main attraction, the show is. The show was excellent. Yes, the staged fighting is very obvious, but it was still a great show and we all enjoyed it thoroughly. The wait staff works their butts off, they have pretty big sections to serve. Be sure to leave them a nice tip. We didn't get there until 20 min before the show was due to start, plenty of time to not have to stand in the anteroom spending money on high priced stuff, but still go in with the crowd. One note though, the show arena/eating area does have a very strong smell, smelled like a urine smell to me, like maybe they needed to change the sand on the arena floor. It bothered me but my husband and sons were fine. I did get used to it after awhile but it was never not there to me. If you are sensitive to smells just be aware of this. While I wouldn't want to go back and experience this again, I am glad we did it. It was a fun evening for a rainy vacation night.
This Medieval Times is a good show. The actors seem to have more energy for the show as compared to other Medieval Times locations we have visited (Schaumburg, IL and Dallas, TX). The show is good, the horsemen are skilled, and the food is decent. Didn't enjoy it as much as Pirate's Voyage, but it is a nice family activity.

Medieval Times is a wonderful time for the entire family - young and old. It's entertainment and dinner in one place. It was our second visit. It was just as good as the first. The chicken is very good. The show is excellent. The staff is wonderful. You won't be disappointed.
