Weekend Recap: Medieval Times

Hello, hello!

This past weekend, Chris and I traveled to Baltimore to celebrate Chris’s brother’s 40th birthday. We did something a little “different” to commemorate his big 4-0… we ventured to Medieval Times!

This was my first visit to Medieval Times, but I had been to a similar dinner show—Dixie Stampede—when I was younger, so I had an idea of what to expect.

For those of you unfamiliar with Medieval Times, here’s a description from the website:

Be swept away to an age of bravery and honor and witness epic battles of steel and steed. From ringside seats, discover a feast of the eyes and appetite with all the splendor and romance of 11th Century Spain.

As you thrill to a rousing, two-hour live  jousting tournament, marvel at awe-inspiring horsemanship and falconry, Medieval Times serves a four-course meal fit for royalty.

After finding our seats, I looked over the “bill of fare”:

Oh, and one thing I forgot to mention… everything is eaten with your hands.

First up was the tomato bisque soup, which was pretty good. (You “slurp” it out of the bowl!) I’m pretty sure the “Castle Bread” was a piece of Texas toast—you know, the kind you can buy in the freezer section of the grocery store—but I don’t mind a good piece of Texas toast, so I was perfectly happy.

When the chicken came out, I was a bit overwhelmed…

It was certainly no joke! I ate what I could, and it was pretty good.

I also liked the herb-roasted potato, but I wasn’t too crazy about the BBQ spare rib.

Overall, the food was decent, but I don’t think the food is why most people plan an outing to Medieval Times; they come for the entertainment!

As someone who isn’t too keen on horses, I actually enjoyed the performance. It was entertaining and fun—they’re big on audience interaction.

Overall, it was an enjoyable night (and weekend in Baltimore), and I even got an authentic, 11th-century souvenir slushy cup to remember our celebration. ;-)

    I’ve never been to Medieval Times, but I have been to The Dixie Stampede, which is really similar. Honestly, I love it. It’s super dorky (I’ve been there at least 6 times in my life), but it has a certain nostalgia for me that I adore. Also, I think the food there is actually pretty darn good, but I can’t speak to Medieval Times!

      haha I’ve only been to Dixie Stampede once–when I was little–but I remember enjoying it! The food at Medieval Times wasn’t bad by any means, just nothing gourmet! haha

      We got a kick out of the fact that we couldn’t use utensils because they were trying to keep things “authentic,” yet they served slushies! haha

    I actually live in Maryland, a little further away from Baltimore, but I have to see I have never been to Medieval Times! I’ve obviously heard of it and know people who have gone but I have yet to go! It looks like you guys had a fun time and I definitely will make it there in the near future!

      I had no idea that there was one in Maryland! It was convenient for us because my sister-in-law and her husband live about 20 minutes away!
