Didn't immediately see a place to show they were closed. Missed a great place. Boat is currently in Houma LA dry dock being refurbished to sail the Mississippi!

The Paddlewheel Restaurant is located on board the Delta Queen Hotel. The food was good, but nothing special, but the Breakfast Buffet that was included with our room, was great. Hot and tasty, lots of items to choose from.
