Dinner was just lovely and everyone faced the stage! The service was out of this world and the show was one of the best ever! The branson belle singers and dancers were incredible and the russian acrobats were simply breathtaking! The talking dogs were hilarious and the ventriloquist, todd oliver was the best since sherry louis and lamb chops!!! An absolute must when in branson!!!!

Me and my husband were visiting my mother-in-law in missouri and decided to take our two kids (ages 9 and 15) and go hop on the branson belle because we thought it would be a fun family event!! Some relatives of mine had told me about it and how they had a blast and we thought we would try it out!!! The food was very delicious. Actually, one of the best meals i've ever had in my life. I especially enjoyed the dessert!! The service was great, and the show was pretty good as well. My kids especially loved the talking dogs act as did my husband and i. I would definitely recommend the branson belle to anyone looking for good food, good service, and most importantly a great time!!!!

My family and i had a wonderful time on the branson belle boat. The meal was wonderful and to know that you had other meal options for my daughter that has celiac diease and she was able to be apart of this was a comfort to me, thank you. We also enjoyed the extra concert afterwards under the gazebo as we were walking back to the car. That evening was the rolf family. It was nice to see their warm smiles and we were even able to chat with them after wards. It was a treat all the way around. Thank you so much, keep up the good work. Thank you and god bless!

Show was superb. Marcus was excellent. Food was great.
-- Julie Aldridge - Hickory Flat , MS
Great show, excellent meal! Because of the nature of it being dinner / show / paddle boat cruise, this is a different experience than most of the shows. Really enjoyed this!

This was a fun experience. The pre show and main show were great, the boat ride was neat, but the food was not good.
-- April Berendzen - HIGBEE, Missouri
We had a good time. The day was beautiful traveling around the lake. The lunch cruise was a nice way to spend the day. The lunch served was very good. The service was top-notch and the entertainment was a lot of fun.

So much fun and great entertainment. Will do this one again
-- Patty Cave - Kaufman, Texas
We don't like that there are no longer wheelchairs available, other than that, it was amazing, we love that it was a different show than the last time. The previous show was good too, but it's nice to see different things. One thing, not knowing how much the dinner was, it's hard to know how much to tip.
-- Lonny Hall - Lincoln, NE

Second visit to the belle. Food ok for having to be mass produced. Some really good voices. Unfortunately the acoustics, for me, aren't good. Our waiter was very attentive which we appreciated.

The experience was outstanding and for brian nolf he is the best and a true professional at that! Daisy and i are big fans of brian ! Brandon young was outstanding and a treat we didn’t expect. The ladies well we are speechless the voices and dancing was awsome! I could watch this show over and over. The best test for ya was also at the presley’s jubilee when the curtain rose brian was playing the bass! We could not have been happier and can’t wait to go back and see him and others again! I might even contact brian about my daughters wedding in august. Thank you for the experience bryan & daisy

-- Mary Brown-Zoucha - Plattsmouth, NE
Everything was great. The show, the food, and the friendliness and professionalism of the stay were outstanding. We enjoyed the time to walk around the boat and take in the scenery and all that is the branson bell. Would like to return and do it again.
-- Dave Monson - Oshkosh, WI
Food was good. Great waitress. Performers had lots of energy, but the music was too loud and too modern for the people who choose this lunch cruise. Wish we could have been out on the deck to see scenery. Seemed to be no point to even being on a boat!
-- Carol Bomball - Charleston, IL
Trip was great. Enjoy all the shows. Hotel room was nice.
-- Joyce Rader - Northglenn, CO
Had a fantastic time on the belle! We rode her the first year she was launched...So it had been about twenty-two years since we had been on her!! They put on a great show & a wonderful meal!!
-- Randy Ranabargar - Hannibal, MO
Went to the 4pm show which was fine. Glad the violin playing scarf lady was no longer there. The guys dancing were obviously counting while dancing and no smiles on most faces. The magician is fantastic as always. Only part of the meal i would have thrown over board was the beef which always seems to have a huge wad of fat inside it.
-- Harold Reardon - Tyrone, OK
Excellent show and dinner cruise
-- Mark Pierantozzi - Wayne, NJ
Loved the show....Food was good, great time!
-- Pennie Dissinger - Leon, IA
The entertainment was great. The food and beverage was good. The experience would have been great except it was so cold. They should have shut the air conditioning off. Everyone around us was complaining how cod it was.
-- Dennis Petrelli - Littleton, CO
My favorite part of this show was the showmen and rhythm group. The band is awesome too. Very talented.
-- Jana - Paragould, AR
The lunch was great, and our server was delightful. When the master of ceremonies introduced the salad course by singing lyrics about the salad servers to the tune of ghost riders in the sky, we realized we were in for some surprises. We were not really expecting much in the way of entertainment, and were pleasantly surprised by the professionalism of the show. The boat was very clean and well laid out, and it was easy to get around, even though i was in a wheelchair.
-- Maynard Johnson - Cincinnati, OH
Great show & food, but best of all was our fantastic server.
-- Margaret Peart - Alamo, TX
Had no preconceived expectations. Was just relieved to settle on an activity worthy of a 50th birthday celebration....Branson belle exceeded my vision ! The boat was amazing and loved the history that was shared. Expected cafeteria type food. Nope ! Excellent barbecue and side dishes did not disappointed. Visit to the top deck was spectacular and the music ! Embarrassed to admit moved me to tears more than once. The grounds were immaculate too. Easy accessibility for our elderly mother. Thank you ! Have recommended your venue to many in the week that has elapsed.
-- Joan Rich - Menomonie, WI
A pleasant and entertaining cruise aboard the branson belle provided a needed respite from current divisive national events. Crew and hosts were friendly, food was good, and entertainment was fun and inspiring. The other patrons on the cruise were also courteous with the staff and each other, making for a very refreshing adventure.
-- Gary Hogan - Greenbrier, AR
Good meal and outstanding entertainment!
-- Mona Taylor - Shawnee, OK
Rushed thru dinner, which we did not like. Show seemed repetitive not enough variety.
-- Bobby Vercher - Biloxi, MS
Had the best seats in the house, the entertainment was awesome, all very talented performers with good music. The food was a little short of superb, it was good, but the chicken was not as hot as i thought it should be, but what the heck with as many people as they served i'll still give it a 4 star rating.
-- Francis Budde - Peoria, AZ

-- Rick Hyatt - Boyd, TX
-- Connie Horst - Montezuma, IA
What a fun way to spend two hours on the water! The showboat itself is a treat. What fun to be on a paddle boat that is so stable one isn't aware of being on the water. The food was good, the show very impressive. It was an excellent show!
-- Carol Gruber - Union, MO

My wife and i have been enjoying the branson shows since 2000. Yesterday, thursday night dinner cruise, we saw the best show that we have ever seen in branson. Magic, music, singers and tap dancing by far the greatest show on earth! Keep it up, thank you for a very satisfying dinner, the pot roast just melts in your mouth.

Great show and even better food enjoyed every minute of it.

Had an issue with previous engagement and missed the showboat however the people were gracious enough to allow us to change our time to later that day and still make our next program. Wonderful staff and great directions to get to the next program. Very thoughtful and the cruise was great. Enjoyed the meal, the service and the performances. Good job!
-- Gwendolyn Stoll - Elwood, Nebraska
Loved it! The boat is charming and the scenery lovely. The food was awesome, too! But the highlight of the trip was how fabulous the show was... Totally unexpected. I just thought it would be cruising and eating. The price of the ticket for just lunch was reasonable, but the professional show made the value double the price! Thanks so much!. Meli, texas

The christmas show with the whisnants and mark trammell quartet were the best ever, they did an awesome job on the christmas presentation in gospel music!!
-- Ron Odum - Mansfield, LA
We loved everything we did in branson but this may have been our shared favorite. We had absolutely front row seats but no reason to believe any were problematic. The performers were among the broadest skill set of those we saw and all were great. The show itself was 'variety' in nature and a little different granting 'christmasl' was clearly the understandable theme. A bit 'chilly' to be outside, but the show was held in an interior portion of the boat so that was no problem but one can, and we did, go outside on deck to see the scenery. It was nice even at night. It was a show hosted by a skillful magician, a beautiful, lovely and talented lady and they were supported by other great singers and dancers and it really was very nice.
-- Kurt Bundy - Crystal River, FL
A must see
-- Gregory Hopf - Houston , TX
Thanksgiving day was a special time with friends on the branson belle. The only negative is that there was no turkey and dressing, but the food was good, as usual. Always a fun trip and a great show!

This was the best attraction we visited. The food was great. The showboat environment was fun. And the show itself was outstanding. The emcee did a great job--very real and sincere, not corny like some places. All of the acts were excellent.
-- Carolyn Bergt - St. Louis, MO
Really enjoyed the cruise. Food was great, best roast beef i've ever had. Service was prompt and very good. Didn't have the best seats in the house, but that's what happens when you wait too long to reserve. The band was superb, the young man singing was good, but i didn't like some of the songs he did at the beginning of the show. Too old, i guess. I was impressed with the magician, but the bit with the dog and camera left me cold. The young lady that played the violin and piano was very good. The aerialist/violin act was just too gimmicky though. Leave the violin playing out and just be an aerialist. She was very good at that. The cruise portion was good too. Enjoyed going out on the deck for the breeze and to watch the other boats and jet skis sliding in and out around the big boat. Never even felt the boat get into motion or when it returned to the dock. Very steady. Thanks for a very enjoyable few hours. Highly recommended.
-- James Beemon - Morton, Mississippi
The boat is beautiful and glides across the water so smoothly, we didn't realize we had left the shore. The entertainment was continuous, even the 15 min. Intermission was enjoyable with the gorgeous views of the lake and shoreline. The meal was phenomenal! The waitstaff was attentive and prompt . The showboat was an excellent choice as one of our three shows we went to while in branson.
-- Elaine Miller - Waupun, WI
We had the dinner cruise and it was excellant. There certainly was enough food and the service was beyond great. The entertainment also was excellant. We had a great evening.

Best show of whole trip!
-- Louise Roop - Perrysville, IN
We really enjoyed the show. I felt the seating is a little too close, felt like we were sitting on top of each other. If you have larger people or older people in your row, it' a tight sqeeze to get in and out of the row.
-- Jackie Pinkerton - Fenton, MO
Show and dinner was very good. It's to bad that the wind was blowing and we didn't get to cruise the lake.

We enjoyed the dinner cruise very much. The entertainment was fabulous. Dinner was very nice and our server was very accommodating and gracious. We would definitely recommend this to others. Our only tiny complaint was the crowded tables. We were so cramped together that our server had difficulty getting between them. We had to rescue a karafe of tea before it was knocked over. But, it was still a fun event!

The lunch was plentiful and there was a variety of good entertainment. We had an enjoyable experience.

Average show. Good food. The boat did not go far only around in a circle.
-- Thomas Lane - Cape Coral, Florida
The magician, dancers and group singers were pretty good. The wait staff was amazing. I was disappointed that the belle floated the lake as we ate and did not get to see the sights of table rock lake. The meal wasn't bad either.
-- Cheryl Blake - San Marcos, TX

Wonderful show. Courteous staff and awesome food. Our second visit on the branson belle and plan on doing it again.

-- Karen Couch - Wichita, KS
The performers were fabulous!!! Can only give four stars due to food being just ok.
-- Pamela Hughey - Lawrence, KS

-- Barbara Englund - Evansville, WI
We had a great time. Food was good and entertainment was enjoyable.
-- Martha Parsons - Paris, AR
My husband and i think this cruise should be part of a trip to branson. The meal is excellent, the show is fantastic. They play music during the meal - so you are not just sitting there. The lake is quite lovely - you don't get too much time to see it - but it is enough for this event. We highly recommend the branson belle for lunch or dinner!
-- Charlene Freeman - Glendale, AZ
Very enjoyable. Good food, lots a fun
-- Gary Carr - Knoxville, PA
Our dinner was mediocre. The entertainment and service were great.
-- Connie Bish - Grand Junction, CO

Great experience. Wonderful views, good entertinment and luncheon.
-- Charles Courtney - Belleville, Illinois
Generally, all shows were entertaining and very family wholesome - however, as a non-christian, the religious imprint was overwhelming at times - even uncomfortable for people not of that faith. 7 days in town was a bit much - 3 would have sufficed.
-- William Iseman - Anna Maria, Florida
Simply the best show in town!
-- Dan Webley - Lawton, OK
What a bargain for a lovely show and terrific hot, delicious meal with both polished acts and a cruise to boot! We loved the food, the visiting with newly-made friends at the table and both the comedy and the singing/dancing troupes! It was a marvelous evening!

Everything about the branson belle was first class. The ship was beautiful, the food and service excellent and the show was superb. Would highly recommend this on anyone's trip to branson!
-- Janet Catlin - Heath, TX
The meal was fantastic and loved the comedian/magician entertainer! The band was good and the singers/cloggers were entertaining to watch but not the best as far as vocal talent. A daytime cruise would have probably been better as far as enjoying the cruise itself as you couldn't see anything in the dark. But overall a great experience!
-- Mary Swift - Laurel, IO
We had a great time. The show and dinner was wonderful. The trip to branson was a lot of fun. Will do it again. When its cooler. It was pretty warm. Thanks

-- Aurora Menchaca - San Antonio, Texas
Food was mediocre and the advertised childrens menu was not even offered to my younger son. Male singing group and the female solo singer were not great. Tap dancers and joking magician were very good. Not really worth it for us.
-- Rick Swanson - Nrh, TX
Awesome. Great food and show. We'd do it again.
-- Louise Smith - Marana, AZ
Excellent show, a must see. Top notch show and great food.

Great meal - great service and a great show too cold to enjoy the ride on the lake outdoors
-- Beverly Savarese - Pensacola, FL
Had a wonderful time tonight on the branson belle. Our waiter fred was awesome. How they were able to get all the food out and have it be so hot was unbelievable. Having lived in springfield for 15 years this was my first trip to the belle. The comedian was good and so were the performers. My husband and i really enjoyed ourselves. So glad we went.

The branson belle dinner and show was great. The dinner was very good and the service was wonderful. The show was the best we saw while in branson. The variety of entertainment and performances, from the mc, to the violinist/pianist/singer/acrobatic, the singers and the band made the show something to remember. I would recommend this to anyone visiting branson and if we are ever in branson again this will be on our schedule of activities.

We had wonderful seats without even asking for them. My husband is hard of hearing and the front row was great for him. And for me, as i love to photograph the events. The program was wholesome and the entertainers were first-class. The theme america was wonderful. They were playing to veterans, and my husband appreciated that. The boat is beautiful, and reminiscent of when i was on the mississippi queen in minneapolis way back in 1956. I am telling everyone about the time we had.

We had a lovely cruise on the branson belle on july 4 for the 8 pm show. Despite having a lot of folks to get on board, that went pretty smoothly. I might suggest you add fans in the waiting area for those sensitive to the heat. The wait staff was excellent, friendly, and efficient. I was most impressed with how excellent the meal itself was. With lots of people being served at the same time, i wasn't expecting that. It was fun watching the fireworks from the top of the ship. The entertainers in the show were quite amazing. Good job finding them. I've already recommended to friends making the trip they make sure to take the branson belle cruise.
-- Marsha West - Fort Worth, TX
Enjoyed the dinner and show and the cruise on the lake. Everyone was super nice and would do this again.

We all enjoyed our experience on the branson belle.
-- Susan Brim - Yellville, AR
The branson belle show and cruise exceeded our expectations. We had almost 100 people from our military reunion go on the cruise and i heard nothing but positive comments from everyone. I would also like to say all the employees on the boat and shore were extremely professional and hospitable. A special thanks to the security personnel who (1) provided me with relief from a wasp sting i received while waiting on the boat landing for the 4:00 pm cruise to disembark and (2) helping me locate a missing member of our group after the 8:00 pm cruise. You do a great job in hiring quality people in all areas of your branson belle operation.

The food was fair, not great. The crowd was overwhelming and there was too little time for us to see the water/surroundings. Had i known the seats were inside and we would not be able to see the water from inside, i would not have booked it. The show/entertainment was superb.

Entertainment and food was amazing, we had a wonderful time and experience. We will definitely attend this cruise again. One thing i did not understand was the only drinks served was non-alcoholic.

-- Myron Marzolf - Lodi, CA
We went on the cruise with friends of ours. The food was wonderful and so was the waite staff. The show would have been wonderful if we had been able to see it. We were seated at r9 and had to watch the show with a big pole in the middle of our view. If i leaned to one side ii could see most of the show but if the fellow at the table in front of me moved i could not see again. Too much to pay for that kind of viewing.

This was the best show we saw in branson! Great singers and dancers that did a broadway medley of 29 songs that was superb!! The comedian was hilarious! The food and service was great! I suggest going to the noon or 4:00 show so when you stand on the deck you can see the rock formations. At 8:00 it was too dark.

This is my 4th time being on the branson belle in the past 3 years. 3 of the shows were with todd oliver and his act never seems to change..Bought his dvd 3 years ago and its the same as seeing in person. He needs to get a new routine. Pretty bad when you can recite his act almost word for word. He needs to get a new act every year.
-- Cheryl Banning - Charleston, AR
Am re-locating to the hollister area...My fiance took me on a dinner cruise at the end of december 2009. The food was excellent, i've never had better service! The show was great, and the additional entertainment before it all started was great also. It was a high school choir out of oklahoma singing christmas carols that would warm anyone's heart. It was great and i can't wait to go back!
-- Rhonda Kent - Bourbon, Missouri

We will go again and maybe bring the grand kids if our nerves can take it thank you for the great time!!!!!
-- Karen And Charles Mcpeak - Dixon, MO
It was a beautiful day
-- Nancy Ratts - Gilbertsville, KY
Good entertainment and good food. I didn't like having to walk up so may steps to get to our table when there were openings closer to the elevators. Also, did not like being told 15percent gratuity was expected for the waiters.
-- Kathleen Walker - Granite City, IL
Food was allright - but did not get to order what we preferred as far as salad dressings, etc. Boat was excellent , as was the entertainment.
-- Rebecca Sullivan - Columbus, IN
Food was just barely warm. I know they have a big crowd to feed, but the house was not full & who likes cold to warm food. Waitress was 'in charge' more than a server. Seats were ok but not the best. Mc was a stitch. I missed some of the lines so the sound could be upped a bit.

What a fun time. The singers and the band put on a fabulous show. And the comedian/mc was excellent. His performances produced belly laughs from us. What was also appreciated was the wholesomeness of the show. Every family member, regardless of age, could enjoy the show without fear of embarrassment. The food and wait staff (leeann) were also excellent.
-- Roger Estes - Albuquerque, NM

My sister and i had an absolutely fantastic time. The food and service was excellent and the enertainment was so fabulous. Totally awesome. We would recommend it to anyone, in fact, we already have!
-- Janice Stow - Billings, MT
Food was good, service too, although i expected that the wait-staff tip would be included in the price. Todd oliver comedy act is world-class -- that was the highlight. Band was excellent, song and dance very good. My only objection is to the show wrap-up: it's a noble thing to promote patriotism, but with the picture of jesus and the signs of crosses in the slide show, it made it appear that only christians can be good patriots. In other words, the branson belle management was equating good patriotism with christianity and vice versa. I am christian and a patriot, but i found this slide-show deeply offensive, and i felt badly for any jewish, muslim, hindu, or whatever other non-christian patriots were in the audience.
-- Vincent Huening - Saint Louis, MO
-- Paul & Lois Hofer - Aurora, CO
Wonderful! Very relaxing and enjoyable
-- Romari Quinteros - Vanburen, AR
Great, next time i will go on the dinner trip.
-- Larry Wischropp - Topeka, KS
We took the 8 o'clock dinner tour, i would recommend that if you want to take pictures of the homes along the lake that you take the noon lunch tour. It was too dark to see anything and even the pictures taken outside at night did not come out very good. The service was good and the entertainment was good, but the food was questionable, i received one piece of beef, cold chicken and not enough gravy on plate to even sop up for the mashed potatoes, if i return i will take the noon lunch tour.
-- Vivian - Michigan
This was fun....
-- Marjorie Doherty - Traverse City, MI
Very fun, wait staff was excellent.

-- Melva Ream - Ottawa, KS

-- Frances Pelfrey - Gary, IN
In response to the person who complained about paying for a soda, give up your craving for a couple of hours. Our table had bottomless glasses of ice water and iced tea and bottomless cups of coffee. Try to remember that the waitstaff is serving about 1,000 people at the same time and individual orders might be extra. Oh yeah, and the entertainment was great, especially irving, the talking boston terrier. I've seen that act three times and it still amazes me, especially when you meet irving after the performance.
-- Mike Lynch - Madison, Wisconsin
The weather was perfect as was the entire afternoon. We enjoyed the food, the performance and our waiter made us feel like we were on a cruise ship.
-- Lorrie - O'Fallon
We had a wonderful time, food was good.

The show was nice but the food was nothing to write home about. You would think for the price you could at least get a soda with dinner. That was an extra $6.

What a view!

A wonderful time, even for my 11 year old!! The food was surprisingly good and the show was just wonderful!! We enjoyed touring the ship and viewing the lake. I highly recommend this show! We will be going again.
