Boat is neat, food was good. The walk from the parking lot to the boat is long. There is to much green space which could put parking closer. Leaving the boat in a torrential storm the walk was long, slippery and dreadful to the parking lot. We didn't anticipate a storm our cruise was sent back to the dock but the show must go on and it was full of energy and amazing entertainers. Loved it. Not sure I would do it again because of the long walk to even get your tickets and then the walk down the gangplank is very long. Leaving in the rain was treacherous but couldn't be helped.

We booked these tickets through the branson tourism when we rented our condo for the weekend over labor day. as i said that post we hit town late Friday night. the sales lady assured us tickets for the Branson belle for sat night the only night we could go. we arrive the hour early that they ask you too. we go to exchange our vouchers for tickets and learn that the reservation was never confirmed. they show they received the fax. the belle is booked solid. the lady behind the counter calls the tourism place and i speak to them. i am very upset as i had promised the grand babies this boat ride. i said so i don't get to go in this cruise the lady sorry come buy and we will give you back your money. i said yes you will i will be there in the morning since now me and the kids have to find a new place to eat. she says we will also give tickets to another show or food voucher. i said food vouchers would be fine. after i get of the phone with her the lady behind the counter at the branson belle said hang on let me come out there and speak to you. she said i have some vip seats we hold out for each show. they are 600 dollar seats but we will let you have them for regular price of general admission,and upgrade the kids dinners to adult meals. i said how much is this going to be. she said 250 for all seven of us. i said can you throw in a couple of those light up mugs for little kids. she reached and gave each a lighted mug.they were 12 dollar mugs it is for smoothies on the boat. plus the gave me a handicap assailable spot with a plug in close by to charge my oxygen. . the show was funny, entertaining, delightful and very energetic. lots of singing and dancing,. remembering out veterans, magic, tap dancing. it has everything and it never stops. the food was delicious as was the smoothies i got one myself. so we got to go even with our reservations. the next morning when i went to the tourism office the gave me back 330 dollars cash. so basically we got paid to see the show, eat our in meal and have vip seating. the seats were great we could see everything. our little waitress we had was the best she never let a glass get empty or a finished dish set in front of us for more then a minute.

We had a great time on the Showboat last night. The food was great. We upgraded to the Captains Row and enjoyed the show. Because of bad weather the boat had to return to the dock.

Meal and show on a paddle wheel boat on Table Rock Lake. The shows are excellent with variety. The meal and service are great. We spent a little extra for better seating and prime rib. Worth it! For anyone that doesn't like boats and water, I assure you that you do not even know you are on the water. Great time and well worth the money.

We loved the seating and entertainment, and the food was great. After we ate and the entertainers took a break we walked outside and watched the scenery go by. Nature is beautiful. We had a really good time.
