Medieval Times

I'm almost embarrassed to be asking this on this board, but a friend of mine wants to go to Medieval Times in a couple of days as part of a "Man Day" he's planning. I'm focused much more on the atmosphere than the food, but if anyone's been, I was wondering if you have any thoughts on the food. Is it decent, at least?

  1. It's edible. We had chicken and also got one vegetarian meal, and most of it was meh, maybe comparable to airline food? I don't remember much, aside from it all being very plain and definitely salty. MT was an interesting experience, but I'm in no hurry to go back. I'm glad you're going mostly for the show.

    1. We went to one in Orlando some time ago. The food is edible, it is made to appeal to a wide variety of people, mainly families with kids. Nothing memorable. So go for the atmosphere and to enjoy your friend's Man Day (!!??) then reward yourself with a good meal another night.

      1. Well, two votes for "edible." I guess I can live with that.

        Yeah, "Man Day." It also involves playing Risk and watching a DVD of the "A-Team" movie. <shrug>

        1. The food is ok, and the show is fun. Be forewarned, tho - if you're allergic to horses, take an antihistamine before you go in. Even though you don't get close to them, the air must be thick with essence of horse, because I broke out in hives each time I've been there (twice).

          1. Will you be dueling your buddy a la Jim Carrey and Matthew Broderick in "The Cable Guy ? "

              I don't think that's the plan, but--I kid you not--he has been known to bust out the "fight music" from the original Star Trek, exactly like Jim Carrey did in the movie (and preceding the movie, by the way).

              Thanks for the warning, Ricepad. I'm not allergic to horses, though I have to say I don't love the smell. At least now I have a better idea what to expect.
