Nice boat ride on the river

It was a great day and the Milwaukee River didn't smell to horrible. The drinks were served right away and most of the people were drunk about an hour in. Luckily it was a sunny day so I could sit out and get a great tan, while the boozers were barfing below. If they would cut people off sooner... read more

Not worth it at all. We went b/c of a bachelorette party. You got 2 drink tickets for cheap bubbly and sams club apps that wasn't enough to go around. Don't bother with this cruise.

Have rented a pontoon boat through them twice. The boats do show their use but everything that needed to work, works. They give you a rather large range of operation and going out into the harbor and down the rivers and canals of Milwaukee is just a fantastic outing.

I spent more than $200 to take six people on a wine cruise. Turns out the wines were on two floors to be traveled on a rocky boat. The little bit of food, that had been reheated, was close to impossible to get to and had to be taken up the flight of stairs. There were only a few tables... More

I took my wife on the surf and turf dinner cruise for our anniversary in late September (lucked out with great weather). I read some of the bad reviews and was a little bit worried about which cruise we would get. One with a rude and unkempt crew and bad food, or a really nice dinner with a great and... More

We booked the Lakeside Spirit for a private charter for a 40th birthday party in September of 2014. The whole process was outstanding. The booking process of smooth and the prices were fair. The food and staff were great and all the guests had a fantastic time. The Lakeside Spirit has a lot of both indoor and outdoor space and... More

The Harbor Lady is a newer, nice, clean boat for this two hour river/lake cruise. The table was reserved so there was no free-for-all. The table was set with orange juice and water. Shortly, champagne and coffee followed and this was served thru the entire cruise. The first course was fresh fruit followed by lox and bagels. The main course... More

We booked the wine and cheese cruise aboard the Harbor Lady. The boat is a newer one and is very nice, quite clean. The wine and cheese were technically unlimited but the pours were very small and it was crowded so we really did not get much of either. I have seen other reviews mention overcrowded tours and though we... More
