The staff was so friendly and accommodating for a family member's wedding. We had a fabulous time! The only negative is the parking situation because it's very limited.

We just went for the sightseeing, no food. Couldn't hardly understand the guy on the PA system. Wanted a beer, their selection was mediocre at best. Huge miller lite sign outside but no miller light, no Coors. Heineken? Bud? All this amounted to was a ride around the lake which was nice enough but nothing thrilling.

This was our first experience like this. We ordered lunch (1. Bbq, 1 crab salad and 1 turkey wrap) . The lady running thr front desk was flustered and we were the only ones in the store at the time. She seems extremely confused about what her job was. $85 for our lunches. We weren't told that it only included... More

'60's approach to customer service and friendliness take Southern hospitality to another level in this tourist town. Ride the Belle in the evening, and enjoy dinner and dancing. Alcohol is sold. Kids will love munching burgers, hot dogs and nachos during a lunch cruise or daytime on the lake that surrounds a national park.

I thought it was very well run and the commentary was very informative and entertaining. We didn't eat, just enjoyed the top floor.

We couldn't have picked a better time to experience this beautiful cruise. The homes on the lake banks are amazing. The natural beauty of this area and the history of the area is worth the price. We had cool weather and a beautiful sunset. We didn't do the dinner, because we did not want to miss anything on the lake.

Staff were gracious and helpful with my 84 year old grandmother. We got the club wrap and potato salad and it was very good. The tour narration was full of fun facts and the scenery was beautiful!

Wife and I would arrive in time for the evening boat. I had her to call ahead while I drove and they said the boat would not go out that evening but would go out the next day. In a motorhome I got a night at the KOA and also booked for the next night as I was going to... More

We got married on the Belle and cruised Lake Hamilton and had a dinner. It was perfect. We felt like we were on the love boat. Romantic, delicious, and worth every minute.

We asked prior to paying what we will see, we were told lots of nice houses. 1 1/4 hour of house gawking. This lake is extremely built up with $$$ houses everywhere. The narration was interesting because there was alot of Hot Springs and local history. So I learned alot. Lunch was offered, but the grease smell overtook the dining... More
