The whole experience was awesome! The captain took us out for great views on Table Rock Lake & offered to let guests come view the bridge & ask questions. The staff was friendly and the server was great since I never ran out of water in my glass. The food and entertainment were also very good. It was a great time!

We were extremely surprised at the quality of singers/dancers performing on the riverboat, Branson Belle. They were better than Broadway quality and our evening was simply delightful. The dinner wasn't bad either. Wonderful experience that I'm glad we didn't pass up on our trip to Branson.

It wasn't bad, but it wasn't great either. We were a bit disappointed for the price we paid for 5 people.

It was dinner and a show. Our waitress seemed very over worked, while the other severs around her, who had the same amount of tables, were extremely attentive to their guest. Your servers tip is not included in the price of the tickets, so they ask you to tip after the dinner and before the show.

Dinner consisted of baked chicken, slow roasted pot roast, mashed potatoes, and green beans. Everything was very bland. We did agree the roast beef was good though. Desert was a semi frozen lemon cheesecake. In the price of your ticket, you get ice tea, water or coffee to drink. Any coke products cost an additional fee.

After dinner and before the show, you can roam the upper decks and listen to the singers on the top deck. I believe we had about 25 minutes to check out the boat.

HINT---if you dont have trouble walking and need the bathroom, during intermission, walk up to the second or third floor. A LOT less traffic in those bathrooms.

BEWARE!!! the photo's you take prior to boarding the ship are not free. For the little booklet and packet of pictures they charge you $40. You CAN'T purchase only one of the pictures. You have to purchase the entire book and set of pictures. We found that very odd since they are losing a lot of money. We ended up taking pictures of the pictures with our cell phone. Probably should not have done, but we did.

The MC of the show was FANTASTIC!!! He promoted himself a bit to much for our liking, but he was a great comedian, magician and MC. We laughed quite a bit. The show itself was okay. It was very entertaining. It catered to the older generation with the music, but it was still nice to tap our toes too.

For us, we would not do this again. It was good, but not good enough for us to come back. Fun experience though.

What a great experience. We boarded early and had plenty of time to visit each level of the Branson Belle. Service was very good, although the gift shop could have had a second till open. We waited quite some time to pay for our items. The meal was delicious and the show was fabulous. I would definitely return!

This may have been the highlight of the trip. Beautiful cruise, excellent entertainment and great food. The young performers were a delight to see. Very talented individuals. Upbeat songs that kept you alive. Mike Bliss was a great MC and slight of hand artist. The part near the end was very special. A religious song, followed by America the Beautiful, and then recognition of veteran's and active military. As a veteran myself, this was something special, that I will never forget!
