"We really enjoyed the experience. However, for the price that my daughter paid for this, we feel it is necessary to point out the negatives. (1) It was just the 2 of us and the boat was obviously for a party of at least 4. The boat advertised in the picture of the experience on your website was there, but given to a party of 3 and had a nice table cloth. Our boat was very large for just us, and the dining table was not secure and not covered with a cloth (condensation from the water/tea pitchers ran in puddles on to the seats and floor). If you put the slightest pressure on the table with your hand or elbow the entire table flipped up. This made moving around and even eating a precarious situation. NO leaning at all on that table, or our meal and drinks were flying. (2) We only got half the meal advertised. We didn't discover until we were already away from the dock that there was no salad or bread to accompany our pasta meal. Again, we made our own fun and enjoyed the evening, but for what my daughter paid, the value just wasn't there -- at least not that particular night. Whether I would recommend is more of a maybe than a no."
"The customer service went way beyond expectation. The friendliness and the availability of the staff was incredible. Everything was beyond expectation and made our special day even that much better."
"We enjoyed our dinner cruise for two, but found it to be frustrating as well. The meal and scenery were lovely, but the cruise was self-guided and self-navigation. Since we were the only two on the boat, one of us always had to be paying attention to steering/driving. The lake was extremely busy and we had to constantly correct for the larger boats and tours as well as the kayaks, canoes, paddle boats, and SUPs on the water. If there had been an anchor or a designated place for us to tie up and eat, it would have made things a lot nicer. As it was, one of us was feeding the other while they were piloting as we did not dare leave the wheel to eat. All of the people were helpful and very nice, and we had no trouble booking our experience. I just wish we had been able to relax and enjoy it more."
