"Great staff and excellent performers!"
Reviewed June, 2016 NEW
Be sure and get there early. We were 45 minutes early and a long line had already started forming. I suggest going while you can still see outside because the scenery is breathtaking. They give you an option to take a picture and purchasing it. I believe that should be a part of the package instead of having to purchase it separately.

"Very Nice Experience"
Reviewed June, 2016 NEW
Our time on the Branson Belle was very enjoyable. We really liked being able to look out over Table Rock Lake from the bow of the boat. The show was very entertaining, Janet Martin is an amazing multi-talented performer as are the rest of the cast.
The lunch was very good with only one complaint. Having 2 entrees seems a little too much but I'm sure those with large appetites were very pleased. Over all a good time for the whole family.
Tip: Be aware that you will be seated at long tables side-by-side with other diners

"Lovely Boat-Updated Show"
Reviewed June, 2016 NEW
The Branson Belle is always a joy to ride around Table Rock Lake. The meals for kids needs some heavy duty updating so they will eat it. My 12yr old grandson had to eat the same meal as the adults because they did not cook enough for the kids. Needless to say it did not get eaten and at $50 a ticket I felt this was a waste of money. They do have some different entertainment this year but it was not very good. I quit watching the show and stayed on the top deck to watch the lake. Was a little disappointed to see that they cruise one small circle and then dock to the boat. You don't see this when you are inside watching the show so I never noticed this before. I have taken this show many times but will not take it again.

Thoroughly enjoyed the cruise and the show on the Branson Belle. We took the cruise and night and were a little disappointed with the lack of lighting around the lake. The show was fantastic and the meal was definitely a step above dinner/ theater meals. Would recommend taking the cruise during the daylight hours next time.
Tip: The daytime cruise would offer more views than the evening cruise.

The magician/comedian was excellent as were most of the singers, although the female lead when we were there could have been better. The songs they chose were wonderful, but mostly only sang parts of the songs. Our four kids enjoyed walking around the boat more than the entertainment, which was probably better for adults. I would highly recommend for an older crowd.

"Interesting show"
Reviewed July, 2015
Really, the dinner was good, the entertainment was okay and the ride was almost non-existent. The reason I say this, the dinner was average for dinner excursions - nothing was outstanding, but it tasted good. The entertainment was okay, as in they had pretty good dancers, the female singer was a bit off pitch - but was better as a comedian, and the speaker was okay. The actual ride was in a darkened room by closing all the drapes over the windows. I suppose this was to lessen the distraction of the sights outside the room. I would have preferred the opportunity to see the countryside while being entertained. I believe I would have enjoyed the views.
Tip: It is good family entertainment with a christian ending.
