As a family of four we went on the 3:00 cruise with half price ice cream so we didn't eat any meals to review. The cost was a bit much, over $60 for four. The Duck cruise might have been cheaper but only on the water for about 15 minutes. The Belle is on there for around 1 1/2 hours.... More

Since there are two trip advisor pages for the Belle, I will try to keep this review to the actual cruise. We ate lunch on the cruise and it was awful (see that review on the Bellle's restaurant page). The cruise was smooth and an ok diversion during our summer vacation in Hot Springs. There was a "tour" by what... More

My fiance' & I took the sunset dinner cruise as part of our 3 year anniversary trip. When we sat down, they asked us if we were celebrating anything & acknowledged everyone's celebrations at the end of the cruise. Our service was great but the food could use some improvement. We each got the prime rib and it was decent.... More

I recently visited during a family trip. I can honestly say that it was the most filthy dining experience I've ever had. From the tables, the floors, the utensils, plates, etc., it was awful. An advertisement in a plastic holder on our table was what I would call "very crusty." I didn't expect a 5, 4, or even 3 star... More

area that boat went on the lake was not bad But I thought that it could have been better. would have also been nice to have heard more history about the like instead of some of the houses that were build buy corporate CEO's.

Very friendly and helpful staff. We went to sail the 3:00 pm sailing which has a minimum of 15 people to sail. They called us at 2:30 letting us know they were still sailing but when we showed up they didn't have enough so they offered us to sail the 7:00 pm dinner cruise for the same price but without...

The cruise was ok, the narrated tour was very brief. There were 2 roaches crawling on the ceiling and floor. The food was bland and overpriced. Once dinner was over, the cruise was pretty boring. The service was good, so were the drinks and dessert! The view of the sunset was amazing.

Decided to take the dinner cruise while visiting Hot Springs and had a good time. Make sure to book at least 1 1/2 hours in advance. Overall it was a fun cruise with some interesting facts about the homes around Lake Hamilton. The food was good, but very limited on selection.

I did the dinner cruise. That was bad for me. I have a lot of food allergies so it was my fault I didn't check their menu first. The dessert was great! The Shirley temples were awesome! Even got to keep the mug! Our server was outstanding! I'm a smoker so I'll tell you other smokers you can smoke just... More

We had reservations for the 5 pm cruise on 4th of July. It was quite crowded and parking is tight. The staff had everything under control. The ambiance could be a little better in the dining room and again, the staff did a good job. The food was fine although my husband's steak looked like it had been baked. He... More
