The service was great, we sat at table 2 in the black and white knights section. Food was really good. The show itself... was spectacular. The horses were beautiful. Queens section is the way to go when getting your reservation. Can’t say enough about the performance and how the knights and the queen and everyone stayed in character throughout the show. Can’t wait to do it again. Best value ever!!!read more

Delicious food! I’ve been here multiple times trying both the regular feast and the vegan feast. Both are equally... delicious and filling. The tomato bisque and garlic bread are a perfect pairing for the appetizer then the chicken,potato, and corn. Delicious. With desert being the vanilla soft serve with caramel. An amazing dinner. The vegan dinner was very refreshing and surprising. The appetizer included hummus with celery and carrots which normally I wouldn’t find exciting however the hummus was very garlicy which I was absolutely delicious the vegetables were fresh and crisp! The three bean soup was very filling and amazing! The desert was fruit which was the perfect sweetness! An amazing experience and that was just the food.read more

One of the best experiences for us first timers! We were celebrating a birthday so we did the celebratory upgrade and... it was absolutely worth it. Walking in, the service was very informative, thank goodness. They told us what we needed to know and where to go, very organized. The games and fighting were amazing. Our very own red knight won! The food was delicious and very filling! I had the regular meal as the rest of my party had the vegan/vegetarian meals. They absolutely loved their meals as well so I'm thankful for that because that's what I was concerned about. I also surprised the birthday girl with a knighting ceremony which was cute! Glad the package came with a group photo that we each all get to take home. I would definitely recommend others to go and will come back again soon!read more

Really good experience. It was just me and my 5 year old daughter. For her it was magical. They whole eating with your... hands was definitely a treat for her.The elaborate show was quite unexpected. I really did not expect such high quality in showmanship. The arena, the sound, the lighting and the seating were just great. Hats off to the staff and crew for all the detail and work that goes into putting on such a spectacular event multiple times a day. AWESOME!read more

I found the experience good. Everyone was friendly and entertaining.At times the main presentation seemed it had a... lot of fluff in it to fill time. I wished there was more "games" instead of the demonstrations of horse gallops and trots. That being said I loved seeing the ability of the horses and they seem to treat them well.The food was "okay". Nothing terrible, but if your looking for great food, this is not the place. You come here for the experience and everything else.read more

Came to join for a my daughter's birthday celebration with the family. We all had a good time and our server was on top... of our order. Everything from performance was great. Food was right below average. Will go again just because you get more than what you pay for a regular day out for a nice dinner. One thing that made me more willing to come back is because my daughter enjoyed every second of it. Hope you get a great experience on your visit. 👋🏽Enjoy The Visit ʕ·ᴥ·ʔread more

Was a great experience for the entire family. With five kids between toddler and teenager, everyone had a blast! The... VIP package was well worth it to be right up front by the action. The food was great, although we did have to request silverware for our toddler. They stick with the medieval theme all the way through, so you eat with your hands! They do a great job with slaving out different parties and requiring masks.I knew better before hand, but unless you plan on consuming alcohol before you are seated, or shopping for trinkets and toys, it's probably not worth showing up the hour early as recommended.I would highly recommend going at least once if you haven't been before!read more

Amazing! Simply Amazing. Great time for the family or even a date. The show was really great and the food was... wonderful! I went with my wife and we dressed up and I was knighted and the staff are so nice. You can tell they love their jobs. From the horse dances and the costumes to the storyline and the Sparks flying with each sword strike it was so entertaining. When I heard they didn't have eating utensils I was a bit nervous, but they don't serve food that you would need those for anyway. I am definitely going back. See you there Lords and Ladies!!!! THE CASTLE AWAITS!read more

If you're in town and want something fun to do I highly recommend doing Medieval Times! The food was great, when... looking at reviews there was a lot of 50/50 about the food but man, I'd eat that again in a heartbeat. The chicken was cooked perfectly and moist, definitely need a lot of napkins. The potatoes were delicious, the garlic bread was GREAT. Didn't eat any of the tomato soup but my friend said it was really good. The wenches were lovely and definitely do their jobs amazingly considering how many people they have to serve. This was my first time going and my knight (black & white) made it memorable by giving me the first rose of the night 🥺. I would so go again.Unfortunately the museum of torture was closed when I went.read more

We came here to celebrate my brother-in-law's birthday surprise birthday that is had a real good time the show is very... good the actors were very good and plenty of horses to go around. The dinner was pretty good but they bring each entry separately so you really don't get a feel of the whole dinner it's just like one piece at a time first the soup then the bread and the chicken and the dessert probably every good 10-15 minutes they give you one course. But you probably won't notice that with the distraction of the show. They do so daggers swords and plenty of stuff for the kids so bring your wallet and plenty of money so you can waste it. Besides that go ahead and have a good time.read more

I've gone with my family to Medieval Times quite a few times over the years, and it has always been a fun experience!... The prices are on the high side, but the quality of service, food, and entertainment makes it all worth it. The staff is ALWAYS friendly and the animals there are very well taken care for. I am going to try and go back for my birthday this year. I haven't been in a couple years and I cannot wait to return! Thanks for all the memories, Medieval Times read more

Visited as a birthday celebration and was not disappointed!! It was just as good as I remember a decade ago!! Very... entertaining. Only thumbs down was the soup! It had dairy and smelled like the milk was bad. But all the rest was good. Just bring about $200-$300 spending cash after ticket purchase for a family of 3. Nothing is cheap these days.read more

Everything was great but wish there was as at least another food option. My chicken was dry and flavorless. I... understand that it maybe closer to medieval experience but we deserve decent food.The seats were super close. It'd be nice if people in the middle of a row have other options than disrupting other show goers and having them stand up and move.read more

Such a fun trip! Haven't been in over a decade and it lived up to my memories. They do a great job of brining you into... the events, staff are cheerful and drinks are affordable. The armory is cool and has some really cool swords for purchase (and really fair prices on them)read more

THIS PLACE IS AMAZING!!! I’d give it way more than 5 stars if it was an option. The entertainment and tournament was... awesome and undoubtedly the best part of the night. On top of that, all of the staff was tremendously nice and helpful. The dinner was pretty okay. Also, being VIP is probably worth it. Everything about our experience was practically perfect. We would really recommend it, especially for families. Our family definitely can’t wait to come again sometime!read more

Book your tickets at least a month in advance. First row packages are highly recommended. Alcohol is served at standard... bar prices during the show. Meal is decent quality with vegetarian main course available upon request. Great place to bring young kids but also enjoyable for adults unlike the pirates next door which is strictly for kidsread more

Great place, Show was Amazing, sadly the Chicken was dry.. Too much traffic during the show of Adult & children... crossing and speaking loudly in front of you as they slowly passed, server traffic was minimal and they provided excellent service. Definitely looking into better sitting next time..read more

Amazing experience. We couldn't wait for them to open again. The service was amazing. Social distancing, mask... compliance and service was perfect so COVID exposure was not a concern. A lot less people so not as crowded. Even the knights wore masks which I'm sure made their jobs harder. The service everywhere was great. Large quantity of food and the food was great. You will most likely be taking food home. My young daughter had the time of her life. Refused to leave yet we promised to go back soon. Would strongly recommend it.read more

A little kitschy, but not bad! Medieval Times is colorful and vibrant representation of its namesake and has been a... Buena Park establishment for a long as I can remember! The live entertainment is enjoyable, food is nothing special (although eating exclusively with your hands is fun), atmosphere and setting are very nice to look at. It's great for families outting nights and for couples looking for a loud exciting evening full of memories.read more

Must-see when you' re in LA. King/Queen package recommended because you' re closest to the action. Treat yourself to... something! Adults become a child again. Eating with hands, who does not like that??? Food ok but you should not be so picky. Recommended recommend. Do we have this in Europe *think* äh... no? So: Book it!read more

Found a Groupon deal for about $43 each person including taxes and fees. Made reservations online.We were assigned... which section to sit and cheer in. The show was entertaining and the food was pretty good too! You pretty much eat everything with your hands so that was interesting. Never experienced eating a multi-course meal in a castle so it was overall a pretty cool experience!read more

Well, it's a dinner place. So a nice lady, who strangely wants to be referred to as a "wench" will bring you a... remarkably okay meal for a place serving this many people. When we were there, they had problems with the dishwasher or something, so we had to eat with our hands. But the food was good.But that's not all! There is this big open space in front of you where a bunch of guys (if the ladies here are wenches, they must call themselves bros or something - they didn't specify) ride really big horses around in circles. The bros (?) evidently don't like each other very much because they keep grabbing the prop weapons from the walls and trying to kill each other. Fortunately, they are no better with their weapons than those guys in the Westerns or Star Wars, and no one really gets hurt. The dust on the floor must be slippery, though, because they fall dramatically a lot. The horses are pretty though, and don't fall over. Just the bros. Dudes? Anyway...But the food is good. Tip your server.read more

Yes, this place is a little "nerdy" but it's also really entertaining and fun! My husband and I watched their New... Year's Eve show to celebrate our anniversary and we completely got into the spirit of things, waving our banners and cheering on our knight to victory! Beforehand we saw some of the horses and even a falcon or two. The dinner was good, nothing fancy, but we appreciated that they had a vegetarian option. After the show, we met a couple of the knights and spent a little bit on the dance floor until it was time to ring in the new year, which we did with complimentary apple cider (champagne was also available and complimentary) and noise makers. Overall it was a fun and memorable experience.read more

Too many good things to say about this place and it’s worth the money to come here to have dinner and watch the... shows.I would recommend to at least get the VIP Royalty if you have kids so that they can sit closer to interact. We had a great time on February 15. 2020 when we went there to celebrate Valentine’s day along with our kids.I do like the fact that we ate roasted chicken with our hands...I would highly recommend this place to my friends and everyone.read more

We came here as a family for a birthday celebration. We got the Royalty package. Such a fun family experience that our... kids will remember for a long time! The food portions are enormous, you won't leave hungry. The entertainment is amazing too! They put you in different cheering sections so you'll be cheering for your knight to win! They have a lot of additional activities/souvenirs/photos you can add on. You'll leave with your wallet a lot thinner but it truly is a unique experience and worth the splurge if you can swing it.read more

Seriously the funnest night of my life! I lost my voice I had so much fun cheering for our knight! Wonderful... entertainment with amazing talent! The horses are gorgeous and well cared for and the riders are impressive! The food was also really good and the novelty of eating with your hands is more fun than messy. Friendly staff who were able to accommodate our gigantic group of 70+ people. We all had a wonderful time! Thanks, Medieval Times! Go Green Knight!read more

One of the best Christmas experiences we have had as a family in a long time. We wanted to change it up and do... something different for the kids to experience on Christmas instead of worrying gifts and what they wanted and what they got. We thought this would be something different for them to enjoy and we were right. They loved the whole experience from start to finish. They got to meet the Queen and the King of the night and see all the horses and see different swords. Once we got into the arena it was so awesome!! We enjoyed the full course meal that was a concept of what they would have eaten in those days (the kids only ate the corn) and very filling. The service was great and the knights of the show was awesome! Our daughter got one of the flowers from our knight we were cheering for. They make it an amazing show from start to finish and so glad we experienced.read more
