Owner description: Cruise on lovely Table Rock Lake on a four-deck showboat while enjoying panoramic views and breakfast, lunch or dinner accompanied by live entertainment ranging from comedy to music to acrobatics.
Reviewed 6 April 2018

This isn’t so much a cruise as it is an entertainmemt venue. A very good venue it is. The show is very high energy and, along with the dinner, is included in the price. The dinner was prompt, hot, and tasty. The crew has this down to a well tuned process.

There is time to lounge on the upper deck both before and after dinner. On a nice day the views are scenic and relaxing.

We booked the noon cruise several weeks ahead for our anniversary. Just before the meal was served, it was announced that the boat would not be leaving the dock due to a storm in the area. We could have had a meal and seen a show in town, but we wanted the cruise. We didn't stay for the show.
I understand things happen, but those of us who paid for the cruise should have been compensated in some manner. My advice is, don't book ahead.

We took the noon trip on the lake. The meal was good. The view outside the Belle was relaxing and the show had a lot of variety. When we bring friends down to Branson, we would consider this a must see.

We really enjoyed the show, unfortunately the weather prevented the boat from leaving the dock. There was a variety of music from country to classic rock and gospel. The singing and dancing was great. The food was just okay, but would go again.

We decided at the last minute to do a noon cruise. The tickets were actually a little cheaper at the boat so I'm glad we waited to buy them, however in the summer it might be wise to get them ahead of time. The food was quite good, as was the service. And the show was very entertaining. The only thing I didn't like Is the card on your table stating the cost did not include gratuities and recommend a tip of 20%. Not only is telling you what to tip tacky, but the real problem I have is, the cost of the cruise includes the boat ride, the show and your meal, so how do you even know what to base your tip for food and related service on?
