We go on the dinner cruise every year around Father's day. Great food, entertainment, and service. Nataya was our waitress and she did an awesome job. We all had the prime rib and it was delicious. We would definitely recommend this to everyone.

This was a relaxing break in our day! The one hour lake cruise was peaceful and informative. The captain and his mate did a good job of explaining different features of the lake and its history as well as engaging the passengers in the conversations.
