Our group of senior adults from Texas had a fun time in the Belle! The food was delicious and plentiful, and Richard, Kelly, and all of their crew did a great job! We will definitely return!

The water was perfect for an outing on the lake, sunny with a light breeze to stay cool. Very few people onboard for that tour. I was disappointed that we hardly went away from one tiny sliver of the lake. But I will tell you...More

We thoroughly enjoyed our riverboat cruise! The staff was friendly and helpful and the food was excellent! The Captains narrative of local facts and culture was interesting and informative, and of course the sunset view was unparalled! We truly enjoyed our ride!

We have been on the Belle a number of times. We always enjoy the tour of the lake. The crew/staff was excellent. The food is an afterthought; lunch was certainly adequate.

Husband and I went as a last minute decision and we're glad we did. The food was delish and the bar is very reasonably priced. We had chicken and BBQ plate. All the staff and owner will make you feel welcomed. After dinner, the dancing...More

This is my second time on the Belle. The staff is great. We always go to the upper deck and decide to opt out of the dinner. The houses are beautiful and the other boaters are friendly. Great attraction for families and couples.

I have no clue
I read they have an on-board bar.. How pricy is the bar? We would like to come for the dinner cruise for our first cruise ever.

I have not idea of the prices. This was my nephews wedding rehearsal dinner and my sister and her husband picked up the tab.
If the food is as bad as I have read in the reviews then how is this a good deal?
