Had a great time on the Belle Riverboat. Food was good, service was easy, ticketing was fast. It is a great event for getting a nice view and history of Lake hamilton and the surrounding area since there are truly few options for a lake view with dinner in this town. I have ridden the ducks and they are ok but they drive you down the same road you just drove down to get to their pick up site then drive around a small point on the lake and then back down highway again. If you want to ride in an air conditioned boat, have a beer or soft drink and a good meal, bathrooms then the Belle is what you need. I highly recommend this for couples and families.

Our tour on the Belle was a bit boring and overpriced! I just read a review where someone said the bartender went to the restroom and did not wash his hands. I witnesses this same behavior today! After seeing that I was sure not to order another thing. Plus he was really rude anyway!

The hubs and I decided to take this boat cruise. It was nice outside the boat. Inside the boat it was old and a tad bit dirty. The " bartender" went to the bathroom and proceeded to start to use it w/o the dorr completely closed, I cannot be for certain but he did not wash his hands. Not enough time and no shaking them or anything when he came out. He came directly in our area and they were completely dry. They did not even look moist. It was hot, the air did not work, he was sweating, wiping his forehead and he never washed his hands. It was disgusting, I watched him make drinks and then pick up a straw and drop it in the cup. He was nice though....... If none of that bothers you.

The tour was nice, the water was nice...... Now to the food. My hubs said the prime rib was bland, on the other hand the shrimp I had was delish! Speed up to 12:30am. I realized that the shrimp was not nood at all! I will save the details and just allow you to use your imagination! Once we were on our way back to the dock the " Captain took so long to get back it's was unbearable, but maybe I was just over it all. We sat on the top deck on the way back and it was nice for the first 20 minutes but the other 40 was a waste.

If you are planning on this boat cruise here are my suggestions:

Eat before you go
Drink before you go
Spend half your time outside on the bottom close to the water and the other half on the top deck!

Thanks for reading!
