We loved the Showboat. The food was great and the shows were excellent. My husband surprised me with this on our anniversary and we enjoyed everything about it.

This was an enjoyable all in one dinner, boat ride and show. The food was good, but not great. The show was good. It was nice how you ate dinner first, then had time to walk around the boat as it was cruising the lake, then the boat docked and you stayed on the boat for the show.

This attraction is NOT handicap friendly!!! Wheelchair or walker, strongly recommend other attractions in Branson. No climate control as well, 50 degrees outside, AC on and even colder inside. Miserable

Want to know what kind of food you're getting? Visit the local nursing home. The food is bad! Some kind of pressed chicken with a leg bone sticking out. If you like tap dancing you're​ in for a treat! After the first number I strolled out on deck and contemplated swimming back to shore.

We enjoyed this experience! Our waiter Fred was friendly, fun and attentive. Dinner was salad, roast beef, chicken, mashed potatoes and veggie-a good meal. The show was high energy and the numbers well performed. Just the right amount of time to wander the ship after dinner and before the show. We would do this again.

Positives-They were on time. Food at the captain table was alright. Staff was friendly. Negative- fell asleep 3 times during the show. We Had seen it years ago and they had acrobates and Las Vegas grade entertainment. This time I kept waiting for the headliners to start. They didn't. - Short boat ride spent most of the time in dock.... More

Plain and simple it's not worth it. You get the feeling of hurry up and eat we have a show to do. When part of your party of 7 gets dessert that is frozen and the other part of your party gets dessert that is thawed and wilted. When your party is split between two wait staff one doing one... More

We enjoyed dinner and saw a fabulous show during our voyage on the Branson belle. Dinner consisting of salad, chicken pot roast potatoes and vegetable, and a great ice cream pie was very good and better than we expected on showboat. The show including comic/magician, tap dancing quartet, male singing group, and outstanding singer Casandre' was one of best we... More

We went on the Showboat Branson Belle twice while we were in Branson, mainly for the show, not for the food. The first time we never left the dock because of the weather. The show was so full of talent I think some of them should be looking for advancement they were that good. The meal wasn't anything I would... More
