The food was good, the music was good, and the service was decent. Jasmine the manager was great. The DJ was fun. Glad we went, but I don’t think we would go again.

Everything was so organized for our group outing, the food, staff, and the music was great. I wish we could have stayed all day, I was not ready to leave after having so much fun. The 2 hour was not enough.

The cruises are popular in the summer. So you might check about availability. There was parking available but not sure how much it was. It's a great day out. Hope you can go!
