This is a neat ship, and worth you time to climb aboard and check it out. We were going to dine onboard and decided to get a drink first at Happy Hour. The upper Deck was open and lots of space, but only a handful...More

Brunch was grossly overpriced for what was offered. There was a limited array of dishes, many of which were cold. The syrup seemed like Aunt Jemima rather than anything worthy of $70 fee. There was no bread or buns provided. The service was terrible, in...More

As of May 2018, I've been a regular patron of the Moshulu for about 15 years. I'm not sure what has happened as of late, but the service, complaint resolution and follow through are severely lacking. The food is usually great, but for the price,...More

What a cool location for a restaurant and bar! We had drinks on the deck and enjoyed the view of the water. The dining room looks awesome. Can't wait to go back.

A wonderful experience. Classic fine dinning. I started with the Tuna Tartare. I finished with the Blackend Swordfish cooked well and very moist ; done beautifully atop potatoes and vegetables. I highly recommend both dishes. Service was excellent and consistent.

There is an enclosed area below the main deck where you can have drinks but the deck area is also available for drinks. Not sure whether they have heaters as we went in August and definitely did not need heaters then! Hope... More
