Crab and shrimp cocktail is a must, only 12 dollars. It's a steal. Also had chicken and grits which were great, habanero sauce is perfect about of spice. Atmosphere is obviously cool too, you know cause it's on a boat.

We took a large party here for a business dinner. The food and service were great, but the floors were noticeably uneven. We all, however, enjoyed the history and beauty of the ship - and the crab mac and cheese is to die for!

Our visit on Saturday night for dinner aboard the Moshulu exceeded our expectations. Great service, really wonderful food, and of course a setting that was as beautiful as it was unusual. The ship has been lovingly restored and the view of the harbor is lovely at night. Our waiter, John Carr. was excellent, just the right blend of helpful and... More

Enter the world of the Moshulu for a relaxing step back in time. Our 6th visit for Sunday Brunch, but sadly no longer the buffet. All was excellent, especially the lobster bisque. For nutritarians, shy on vegetables. Always love sipping the optionalLy unlimited choice of champagne drinks while watching the activity on the river. Afterwards go up on deck to... More

Great location and actually good food but that's where it stopped It was a case of unqualified servers doing their best but totally ruining an evening Where they think banter is more important than technique leads to being unaware that 100 USD Chardonnay should be chilled or all red wine is not the same and steak is best cut with...

What a wonderful experience! The staff was so polite and accommodating, making sure we saw the sights from the top of the ship. The food was AMAZING, the drinks were fantastic, and the prices more reasonable than I expected. Paying $17 to park in their parking lot sucks, but it's the city, so it's not surprising. Highly recommend this restaurant... More
