We have been on the dinner cruise before and had a great meal. This time was awful! The music was loud and terrible; he sang about buscuits and kids kicked out of school in Georgia. It was so loud you could not carry on a conversation. When we were finally called for dinner, there wasn't any food left and what we did have (rice) wasn't cooked. The prime rib was left over from what the diners before us didn't want. They immediately took away what food was left (rolls and salad) so we went away hungry. This was my parent's 60th anniversary and there were ten of us, so it was not cheap. Guess you could say we won't forget it!

5-25-13 My husband and I took the evening dinner cruise. Weather was perfect. The prime rib melted in your mouth. The dinner was great and the evening on the river was perfect. I wasn't thrilled with the musician. He started out playing and singing songs we knew and enjoyed but then changed to a different style. Other than that it was a wonderful evening and would recommend it.

My daughter thought this would be a great way to spend Mother's Day, especially as I was visiting TN from FL.
This has to be the worst Mother's Day luncheon I have ever had! The potatoes were hard, the green beans were cold, the pasta was bland, the salad was limp and the chicken [if you could find any] was terrible. $33 was an extortionate price for such an inferior meal.
Never Again!!!

It was relaxing, and it was nice that we had lunch. There really wasnt to much site seeing on there for an hour and a half ride. It was 50 bucks for the two of us. We did the deluxe deli lunch cruise. The sandwich was really good

We took the 2 hour 7 pm cruise with 5 children. The staff were totally kid friendly. It was raining, but that didn't put a damper on our cruise. We had a wonderful Prime rib and shrimp dinner. The Prime Rib was as tender as could be! Plenty of food. The kids were allowed to wander around the boat and were invited to visit the captain up top. We were she erased but not overpowered so we couldn't carry on a conversation. Inside the cabin we were kept warm and dry. On the way back we were able to see the pretty city lights as they lit up. We did need to pay an additional fee for parking across the street.
