The Showboat is authentic and has its own story. The food was better than I expected (my expectations were low due to someone else's review). We were about to pay the upgrade for the food, but for eight people that would have been over $100. I'm glad we didn't pay the extra because the roast beef and chicken were both... More

First to get on the boat all purses are checked. The dinner area is very nice. Stage area can be seen at every area in the dining room. Shows were great also the meal was quite good. You can walk in and out around the boat. There is a gift shop to spend, spend!!!

My most recent experience was November 14, 2016 . We took the 12:00 lunch cruise this time. We had Beef Roast with gravy... More

We visit the Branson Belle multiple times a year and we have never been disappointed. The weather was very cold and windy and we were unable to leave the dock, but the show must go on. And it did! Amazing as usual! Great food, great service, great show, and great talent! Highly recommend to everyone!

We've been to Branson several times but this was our first time to visit the Showboat Branson Belle - we were missing out! The host (Christopher James) was hilarious and fantastic! All of the performers were top quality - including the pre-show. The wait staff were very friendly and helpful - my mother-in-law (83) was in a wheelchair and they... More

We visited the Branson Belle after Thanksgiving, 2016, which is a beautiful time to go. The grounds, shops & the Showboat are all beautifully decorated for Christmas. What a wonderful place for family pictures! We chose sitting at the Captains table. To us, it is well worth every extra Penny paid. It is the first row of the balcony. You... More

I loved the whole part and even the food was terrific. I was there with my husband and my parents they were celebrating 40 years marriage and it was a blast. My favorite part was the quartet and also the band playing. It was our first time on the showboat and we will be coming back. Thank you so much... More
