Dinner cruise disappointing

The Friday nite menu is filet and salmon. Salmon being an odd choice I thought. The steak was very tough and difficult to cut even with the steak knives they provided. Could not eat it. The salmon was way undercooked and, again could not eat it. The mashed potatoes and green beans were very... read more

Incredibly crowded - this boat has VERY LITTLE outdoor space, though that is clearly where people want to be on a 'boat cruise.' Free margaritas have very little alcohol (as expected). Tacos were better than expected, fresh ingredients. Very disappointed in the lack of outdoor space on the boat, if you could get out there it was super crowded as... More

This was supposed to be a very lovely family celebration and it started off very badly with the sheer disorganization of the boarding process. The boat was filthy with dead bugs in the light fixtures, dirty windows and disgusting carpeting. The drinks were outrageously priced, the salad was overdressed, the steak was really undercooked and stringy, the scallops and mashed... More

The food on this cruise was terrible! Nothing was edible. It was a huge disappointment since the boat ride itself would have been such a nice experience. There were spiders all over the boat. It was obvious that it never gets cleaned on the outside, or at least hadn't in while. One girl had a spider fall on her plate,... More

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 it... 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
