“Pleasant Surprise”
Reviewed March 27, 2014 via mobile

The show was surprisingly very good. It started out a little slow but quickly got better and did not disappoint. The meal was acceptable and the staff friendly and efficient.

“"Good Food, Great Entertainment, Beautiful Setting on Table Rock Lake"”
Reviewed March 27, 2014

If you come to Branson, MO, make sure you book a cruise on Table Rock Lake on the Showboat Branson Belle, You will enjoy good food, fantastic entertainment, and a beautiful cruise on this old paddle wheel boat. You may book a lunch cruise, afternoon, cruise, or a dinner cruise. This is the last year for the Red and Blue shows. You will thoroughly enjoy the Blue show--we have seen it twice. Janice Martin is unbelievable on the violin, piano, and her special aerial act with the violin. Loved the comedy--what wit and ad lib with the audience. The Showmen blend in perfect harmony. Wonderful band. We already have our reservations for the Red show in August. There are other shows that you may take in, too.

So come on down to the Ozarks. It is beautiful country with down-home hospitality.

“Great time on Branson Belle!”
Reviewed March 26, 2014

The entertainment was fantastic. We seen the Made in the USA tour and all performers were really good! We took the luncheon cruise and we were pleasantly surprised. The food was good. The staff kind and knowledgeable. I would definitely do this again. The only downfall was we got online tickets and you have to trade them in at the booth before boarding. So definitely get there an hour early.

“Great Showboat dinner/show experience”
Reviewed March 24, 2014

The show was fantastic- a must see!!! Only problem was getting tickets- recommend not to buy online- online was through a vendor that sent a voucher we had to print which was difficult as we were traveling and didn't have a printer. The voucher was sent to the hotel after we had to call to arrange it- then the other problem was at the Showboat Branson Belle ticket office, they printed the tickets after we gave them the voucher, but when we showed up the day of the cruise the bar code didn't work when we were trying to board. Had to go back into the ticket office and get new tickets printed. Just an unfortunate experience trying to get our tickets. Suggest buying the tickets at the ticket office. Other than that everything was great- food was good- we paid extra to sit at the Captains table where we had a choice of menu items.
