“Never again!!!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2013 via mobile

Just paid good money for the Belle to take us to see the fireworks display on the lake. Never again. The only way I would ever do it again would be if I could be the captain. He faced the boat directly towards the fireworks then ccasionally turned it to one side preventing people from getting a good look at the display. Left side of the boat got the best show. You would have thought he would have turned the boat to one side or the other and left it there. As it was, he had the best view of the evening. Boat was full. Several people commented that he could turn the boat side ways and everyone would have a great view. Very disappointing. Can't recommend this to others.

My wife took me on the dinner cruise for my birthday and we had a great time. The food was excellent and staff was second to none. I would highly recommend this cruise for a very pleasurable experience.

“Family tour on the Belle”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2013

Had a good time on the Belle, the lunch was very good. The tour & viewing was great, but they do need to fix it better for wheelchairs. They was really rough getting my aunt onto the boat, was very disappointed on how they had to do that. The staff could be a little more friendly, they are there to serve you & make it fun for you. Two of the guys that was serving the lunch was getting upset cause a group came on that they didn't know about. They do this everyday they should know people come without reservation. But do recommend touring on the boat, it was very fun & learning about things.

“Do something else.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2013

I would not recommend this as a good idea of something to do. The boat looked dirty. The food was not very good. If you want a lake tour take a DUCK TOUR.

“Relaxing lunch on the lake”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2013

Went on the 1:00 PM lunch cruise - food was good(chef salad for me, pulled pork sandwich for my husband) and service friendly and accommodating. Dialogue provided during cruise informative and interesting. Only downfall - handicap access for boarding not explaned - we found the parking area after the cruise and steps to get to boat a bit daunting. However, would go back!
