Ready for a night of intrigue and delicious Italian cuisine? Look no further than RigaTony's Murder Mystery, another of the best dinner shows in Myrtle Beach.
Set against the backdrop of the 1930s, RigaTony’s Murder Mystery drops you into a mobster-themed world, all while you enjoy an incredible Italian-style feast.
The menu at RigaTony's is just as good as the show itself. You’ll start with a crisp salad with Italian vinaigrette, followed by a warm bowl of Tomato Bisque soup with toasted bread. The entrees feature mouthwatering Manicotti paired with the chef's choice of a side. And for dessert, it doesn’t get more quintessentially Italian than a hand-piped Cannoli.
But that’s not all—RigaTony's offers seasonal shows, too. "Murder Under the Mistletoe" brings a festive twist to the mobster saga during the holiday season, and RigaTony’s also does a show called the "Art of Deception" that takes you back to the roaring 1920s.

Ready to bring Medieval Spain to life? This one-of-a-kind Myrtle Beach dinner show takes you inside the walls of an 11th century castle where you’ll spectate an epic tournament complete with knights and their steeds and the Spanish Queen Isabella herself!
Medieval Times offers a fun experience from start to finish. Your journey begins the moment you pass through the castle gates, where you'll cross the drawbridge and choose the colors of your kingdom and which brave knight you’ll spend the night cheering for. You can then start to wander and explore the castle's majestic halls adorned with suits of armor and medieval artifacts.
You can also explore the Hall of Arms and gain a historical glimpse into medieval life with its display of weaponry and coats of arms. Here, you can even watch the pre-show knighting ceremony and see the noble horses and live falcon that star in the show.
The heart of the dinner experience is the jousting tournament. As the lights dim, the knights joust and compete in hand-to-hand combat. Only one can emerge victoriously, and you’ll play a vital role in cheering your knight to victory.
The Medieval Times feast is just as splendid as the tournament, as it’s hosted by Queen Maria Isabella herself! The four-course feast includes garlic bread, tomato bisque soup, roasted chicken, sweet buttered corn, and herb-basted potatoes, and a mouthwatering dessert served with hot coffee. The feast also offers vegan, vegetarian, and gluten-free options, ensuring everyone has a dining option. After the show, you can snap photos with the knights and explore the gift shop.
If you’re looking for an unforgettable Myrtle Beach dinner show, Medieval Times will not disappoint.
