What Our Customers Are Saying

"Planned a party for 40+ people for my wife’s 50 birthday and it was awesome! The outside weather was nice, but a little chilly, but the inside on both the upper and lower decks were nice and toasty. Jim and the entire crew were excellent!! Sherri did a great job coordinating the event. The presentation of the food was done very, very well, but I was too busy drinking a great IPA on draft to taste it."

– Matt F.

"I wanted to take a moment and thank you for an incredible Birthday celebration! You had every detail just right, from the champagne as we boarded, the beautiful décor, delicious food and fantastic drinks. Then the spectacular cruise down the River. You made this milestone one I will never forget and a memory I will always cherish. You have a real gift for making your guests feel so special. "
