My wife and I took a dinner cruise to celebrate our anniversary. The cruise is pleasant enough, and the night lights along the Potomac still dazzles; unfortunately, all the glittering lights cannot overcome the overpriced food and drink served on board. The dance music seems...More

We went there for the Sunday brunch because we bought a Groupon deal. Even with the deal, I don't think it was worth it. The food was okay, but the only eggs that they had was an omelet station which the line was too long...More

We were given a gift certificate for a Sunday brunch cruise on The Dandy. After reading some of the reviews, we were quite apprehensive. We consider ourselves foodies, and we aren't "cruise people." Nonetheless, we went. The experience was definitely helped by the fine weather...More

On December 18, 2011, my husband and I celebrated his birthday on the Nina's Dandy. To begin, the cruise departed 30 minutes late because of tardy passengers, but the cruise ship was less than half full, so they needed all the passengers that they could...More

Good weather, at least for most of the cruise, is the only thing that made this a nice experience. And, eat first. Sunday brunch included mostly tasteless food and undercooked omlets (felt sorry for the woman making two omlets at a time for crowd of...More

We brought our family that were visiting for our wedding. You can't beat seeing the monuments by night, and having dinner at the same time. Our food was good, and we had used Groupon. If we had paid full price this would have been a...More
