Pirates Dinner Adventure Complaint - Don't Waste Your Time Or Money!

Review by Fatmax65 on 2009-03-30
BUENA PARK, CALIFORNIA -- Extremely expensive at $56.00 plus tax. No refund(stated on website), tiny food portions(being that it's geared towards adults and kid).

The difference from the website displayed food portions and the mini portions you are served is dramatic. The salad was 100% lettuce with a disproprtionate amount of hard lettuce stems. No tomatoes or a choice of dressings(only ranch was dropped off at our table). The garlic shrimp and scallops was about 6 small shrimp and diced scallops(into about 8 tiny pieces).

About a 25 minute wait from the time the salad plate is picked up until the actual dinner arrived. The heaviest water stained plastic cups I've ever seen in a restaurant.

Don't go to this place hungry, and if you do, be prepared to stop elsewhere to get additional food.

Th seat bottoms made of hardwood had me in pain.

Entertainment was not fun, entertaining, or engaging. It was so haphazardly executed, it couldn't hold our attention.

Sorry to be so negative, but with the steep price of admission, we could have went to many places and at least felt that we got our money's worth. The Pirate Dinner Adventure website is mis-leading. Find a better place to spend your money!

I've heard the one in Orlando isn't very good either. I've not been there, but I was thinking of taking my kid there after one of my friends went with her family. She said the food wasn't very good and they were more like gypsies instead of pirates.

Thanks for the review. Very helpful. I was thinking of going there not anymore.

"... they were more like gypsies instead of pirates."

You want authentic pirates? They'd burn your car. Rape the female (and a few male) guests. They would have little returning trade.

Is this the place down the street from Medevil Times?My wife wants to check this place out.

You could have just said "screw this place,lets go down the street to Knotts Berry Farm and have the best chicken dinner in California"

Trainwreck, that sounds like a great idea.

Yeah,that Mrs.Knott sure does know how to cook up some chicken..

Ejack, if P-Dumb does run this place the way it's being run sounds about right for the birdless Swashbuckler.

Good review, may have saved many some hard earned Doubloons.

Ghost of Doc J, this is possibly the rudest and most disgusting comment I have ever seen in my short time on this site. I'm sorry for you.

Trainwreck, I haven't been to the Knott's restaurant in a long, long time, but the next time I'm in that area, I'm going! Good to know it's still alive and kicking.

I grew up going to that place with family.We went a few years ago,and it is still the same.Nothing has changed,not even the long lines out the door....A So Cal tradition IMO

TW, quality and quantity are the same today as when I was a kid going there with my Grandparents. I could live on Mrs. Knott's Berry Pies.

Sorry if real pirate activity upsets you KIA2. Maybe in a world where unicorns jump over rainbows, the pirates sing "Yo Ho, Yo Ho, It's a pirate's life for me" and sashay around like Johnny Depp...the commentator was upset that the place's pirates lacked authenticity.

Now, now Ghost of Doc J. Are you sure if you look hard enough you can't find a few nice Pirates? This profiling thing is not politically correct.
Posted by Anonymous on 2009-03-30:
The profiling thing comes as a direct result of the very poor representation pirates have made on M3C's.

Indeed Sheriff. Pirate was not only a 'nice' Pirate but he was also a 'beloved' Pirate. Heck, the guy has been gone for months yet never a week passes without somebody regaling a favorite Pirate memory. Now that's what I call LOVE!

Wow, admin was fast on that one

I would have bet a dollar teddy was Lidman. In fact I'm pretty sure it was Lidman. If not then whoever it was is well versed in Lidmanology.
Posted by Anonymous on 2009-03-30:
Someone just lost a dollar on a poor bet. Biccey at his best. Liddy is not even near a computer right now. I'm surprised Teddy's trust list didn't jump by one before he got the boot, again.
Posted by ejack053824 on 2009-03-30:
Crabman..your love for Pirate really concerns me. LOL!
Posted by ejack053824 on 2009-03-30:
Admin finally got the lead out of his butt I see. Good work!

Posted by ejack053824 on 2009-03-30:
