Description

from Medieval Times Dinner and Tournament New Jersey
Medieval Times is more than the nation's #1 and longest running dinner attraction - it's a living link to the past where the glory, chivalry and valor of old burst to life in authentic pageantry and thrilling tournament action.

While guests enjoy a hearty four-course medieval-style banquet (without silverware), six brave knights compete in games of skill astride magnificent Andalusian stallions. Lances splinter against shields of steel, broad swords spark and a champion emerges, to the cheers of the enthusiastic crowd. The spectacle unfolds nightly inside a fully enclosed European-style castle.

The Feast:
The menu at Medieval Times consists of garlic bread, tomato bisque soup, roasted chicken, sweet buttered corn, herb-basted potatoes, the pastry of the Castle, coffee and two rounds of select beverages. A vegetarian meal is available upon request.

In addition, our cocktail servers will be making the rounds and are happy to deliver any spirits from the bar that you request for an additional fee.

*Plan to arrive early, seating is first come first serve and to obtain the best seats and castle doors open 75 minutes prior to show time.*

"Knight out in New Jersey"

Top dinner and show over the river from Midtown. The knights and the horses put on a great show. The dinner was in the theme and delicious. Top show by all only let down by the sound quality. Loads of fun if you get into the spirit.

"Better than I Expected"

I went here as part of my daughter’s birthday present from her generous aunt. I will admit my expectations were low, but it wound up actually being a fun evening. The show is first rate and is well designed and scripted. The food is also good enough for its purposes. They start with tomato soup and garlic bread (not historically accurate, but that’s okay). Dinner is a chicken half served with half a corn on the cob and a smallish baked potato wedge. Leaving aside the additional historic inaccuracy of corn and potatoes in Medieval Europe, the sides were cooked fine. Think of the typical wedding venue level of quality. The chicken, however, was actually impressive. It was juicy and tender and plentiful. I also liked how they announce the beginning of the feast and all the servers come out at once bearing trays of chicken which they distribute to everyone. It was a fun evening overall for everyone. The food gets a B+ but the show an A+. The key point is that my daughter had a great time.

We have been several times, and it never gets old! If you allow yourself to be a kid, wave a flag, and holler for your knight, you will revisit your youth! Great food, but pricey drinks from the bar.

My BF, two teenage boys and myself had a great time at the show. The meal was better than expected, as were the seats! We went mid-range with the seats but were in the second row, right in the middle so it was a great view. Wish it was closer, we'd go again. Not a fan of travelling to NJ from CT.

When vacation plans fell through, we decided to squeeze as many day trips into the week as we could. Had been wanting to do this for years, and we finally made it happen. The food was great, the show was great, our knight won,our server was gracious, and we had a wonderful night out as a family. We're a family of 5, ranging in age from 18-56, and everyone had fun. Special offers brought the cost down as well. Highly recommend.
