We enjoyed the sunset views more than anything else. Quite honestly the food was average, the staff was extremely polite and accommodating. Our server was a bit slow and quite forgetful - polite though.

We used to have a paddle wheel style vessel out of the South Pasadena location, but that has since been replaced with the StarLite Sapphire, a sleeker and newer dining yacht.
