The staff was very nice and personable. The boat ride was beautiful and the captain provided us with some really great information. The reason for the three is that food was really average at best.

My wife and I decided to take this cruise on our honeymoon. I had proposed to her on a dinner cruise in Thailand and this seemed like a wonderful bookend to that tale.

Upon boarding we were told that we were seated upstairs-- this was the opposite of what we had asked for when reserving. I had asked the agent at Captain Bill's what the seating options were like and she has told me the downstairs had glass windows while as the upstairs was open windows with plastic curtains that roll up and down. Since it was the beginning of October I had requested the downstairs, figuring the glass would be clearer that the plastic. This turned out to be true, and less than 30 minutes into the cruise we had to roll down our plastic flap because it was too cold to keep open.

We had been moved upstairs to accommodate a large Amish tour group. That's great-- I'm glad they could come. I'm not glad that they all had to be seated in one solid group.

The food was pretty subpar. Despite ordering vegetarian soup we were served chicken gumbo, and the polenta and scallops were pretty rubbery and tasteless.

The highlight was that the beer and wine weren't too expensive, and the waitstaff served is pretty quickly.

The cruise was 3 freaking hours. It could have been 2. We would have liked that a lot better (and it seemed like everyone that practically ran to the door at the end would have too).

We booked Captain Bills Lake Cruise one early afternoon. This was an hour ride on Seneca Lake. The captain and his mate take turn speaking about the history past and present about Seneca Lake. It's a nice leisurely ride. We went past two salt plants, private properties and Hector Falls. We had a nice time and you would too.

Located on Seneca Lake this is a wonderful place for lunch or dinner. The prices a re fair and the food is extremely good. The menu covers a wide range and all is prepared fresh. The atmosphere is pleasant and the decor is nautical as you would expect.
