Love the atmosphere on the boat! Friendly people and really good food. Not a ton to see but it's still a pretty cruise.

We spent a pleasant hour on the water, but there's not much to see. It was good to sit down after hours of sightseeing, but the river's high banks prevent much of a view. The boat needs some upkeep and maintenance, beginning with a new coat of paint. Music was fun though -- of the period and rollicking to boot.

I bought a goupon and made reservations for about 10 people. We showed up but nobody showed up to take us out. When I called about the situation I was told they would honor the groupon all summer. I made reservations again for today and they actually showed up but they didn't honor the groupon like they said they would,... More

Finnaly I reserved a date and when I get there they are closed, I call and they apologize but they tell me to... More

My hubby and younger daughter did this for a daddy daughter date and my daughter had a great time! So we took all the kids along with our neighbors kiddos on Friday. The captain is amazing with the kids and all the staff we met were kind and courteous. It could have been a bit cleaner and I think a... More

Myself and three others recently took a dinner cruise on the Willamette Queen Sternwheeler and had a ball. The food was excellent and the crew was cordial and attentive. The captain even let anyone who wanted to navigate the sternwheeler do so and were presented a certificate for safe navigation of the vessel. A fun time was had by all... More

I can hardly believe how some have had such a bad experience and with bad food aboard the Willamette Queen. At 60 years old I've been to my share of events, and such. The wedding reception I attended October 12, 2013 was one of the best. The food was great, the staff was great, the facilities were great. It was... More

We were visiting relatives in Salem and they took us on the Willamette Queen for their Sunday Brunch. I think the total people was nine including the four of us so not much of a crowd. It was sprinkling a little in the morning so some people canceled which was their loss. We all thought the food was excellent and... More
