Bissell Mansion Restaurant & Dinner Theatre

I do declare, I do declare, there has been a murder, and you, sir or madam, can be a part of the action as it all unfurls, or just sit back and watch how the pieces all come together. Either way, meal and laughs will be provided. The former home of Captain Lewis Bissell, built in the 1820s and located in the north-side College Hill neighborhood, is now an everlasting crime scene, with homicides occurring every Friday and Saturday evening and Sunday afternoon. For a fee, customers can witness the action and even take on a starring role if they so please while enjoying a four-course meal surrounded by the elegance of early St. Louis interiors, featuring large fireplaces, chandeliers and wooden doorways. The dinner menu, which comes with two glasses of wine, includes an appetizer, salad, entrée and dessert. Guests and suspects can choose from an eight-ounce strip steak, chicken Parmesan or a baked white fish served amandine for their main course. Weeknight shows are available at special group rates.
