My sister, my little girl, and I went to Al Capone's Dinner Show Thanksgiving night. I called ahead and made reservations, and the lady told me that they were going to have a Thanksgiving feast. Well, the food was just horrible. They had mashed potatoes with no gravy, stuffing that was dry, and macaroni and cheese that was really runny.
They also said that they had rum runners and sangria, which were in pitchers, but when he served it to us, it was all watered down. Before the show started, they would let people sit early if you went to the bar and ordered a drink. The only good thing about the drinks there was the one drink we ordered from the bar. The bartender's name was Dutch, and he made my sister and I a speciality drink called a Dutch Treat. If we had not ordered that one good drink, the whole night would have been shot. Please do not go to Al Capone's for the food; you will be very upset if you do.

Prohibition is in effect, so you will need a secret password to get in. The show is comical as well as musical. Watch out -- you might be a participant, even if you don't want to be a star.
The wait staff is part of the show. The meal is an Italin buffet and your beverage glass will not get empty. All sodas, tea, beer, and wine flow freely all night.
They are celebrating their 10th year anniversary this year, so with coupons, the dinner and show is priced below $20. The coupons can found in all of the coupons books in Orlando.

The staff are all gangsters and are great entertainment in their own right. If they like the kid's mug, they might even show them their piece . . . The dames on the stage can really belt it out . . . and kick it up!
The Italian buffet (pronounced at Capone's as in Jimmy Buffet--and from then, of course, our kids would not say it any other way, even now back home in Toronto), although simple, is by far the best quality food offered in all the live dinner theaters in the area. Both the food and the drinks are plentiful.
We have now seen the show twice, and I am sure we will see it again on our next pilgrimage to Orlando.
The reasonable price, with coupons that are available EVERYWHERE, is outstanding. They don't pay a bunch of intermediaries and timeshare operators to get the people in . . . so that seems to very much to be reflected in their prices.
They seem to be busy every night . . . so make reservations in advance a day or two ahead if you can manage. But since the seating is assigned at the time of reservation, and they let you in about the time of the show, don't bother arriving early--all that'll get you is a line-up for no good reason.
