"Great Show Great Service!"
November, 2016
We were on the Showboat Branson Belle 11/25/2016 seated in row P table 2 our server was Mikayla and she did an outstanding job for us . Her service was exceptional and the information she gave us about our time on the boat was very helpful. She made our visit one that we will long remember. The show was outstanding and I can't remember the last time we laughed so hard! It was a most enjoyable experience and we will be back again next time we are in Branson.
Tip: Get your tickets early for the best seating choices.

"Fun on the Showboar Branson Belle"
August, 2016
The musical selections and the talent was tremendous. It overly compensated for the iceberg (no nutritional value) should have been romaine salad!
Tip: Get ready to relax and enjoy!

"Seeing the Branson Belle through Reserve Branson"
July, 2016
We went to the 8:00 pm Branson Belle Showboat on Tuesday July 5th. I figured that since we got our tickets just a couple weeks before our trip that the seats would be in the nose bleed section or way up somewhere. When we exchange our e-tickets for the genuine tickets the Ticket Agent said that these were very good seats. I was actually going to upgrade to attempt to get better seats. I am very glad I didn't. Our seats were on the aisle and the 4th row from the front of the stage. I was flabbergasted. We could see every performer with out an issue. I even posted to my Facebook account about the Great Seats we got through Reserve Branson.
Tip: One Paddle Boat looks and operates like any other Paddle Boat. We have been on the Spirit of Peoria many times so it was quick to tour. The Stage and performances were Great. I am thinking about going back for their Christmas Program.

This is something you have to at least experience once in your life. The magic show with Christopher James is awesome. The food is awesome. The paddle-wheel boat is amazing and worth experiencing. You won't regret it!

"much better in previous years"
TripAdvisor user rating 3 out of 5
Reviewed May 20, 2017 NEW
Unfortunately, this is the first year that we left the Branson Belle disappointed...In previous years, the show has always been entertaining and uplifting..We especially liked when the veterans in the audience were recognized with applause when they stood up and when God was given the glory...both of these things were omitted this year...the military was lumped together with many other professions in a lame video and we had many men from the USS Lexington present that should have been recognized...I would have given a lower review had our server not been terrific...The food is good not great and we never received our picture.
