"This was an amazing event to go to"
This was an amazing event to go to. The food was delicious and the show was absolutely out of this world. I definitely suggest sitting through the entire show before roaming the boat since you have plenty of time after the show's done. The singers are very polite and let you take pictures with them at the end and then they have an amazing second show up on the top of the boat afterwards that is comical and fun. Definitely recommend doing this.

"The show was fabulous."
The show was fabulous. The service was amazing. And the food was ok. Not sure what i was expecting, but i didn't’t leave hungry. It was a bit crowded in the dining room so my advice is to go to the restroom and get your drinks before you get seated. The servers will get your drinks for you if you’d like. The stage was small but the cast used it well. Not boring at all.
Tip: Enjoy!!!

"Would recommend this experience to all and hope that it will become your family tradition."
The general jackson cruise at christmas has been a family tradition for the last several years. We are hoping to be there again this year. I love to see the glow on my daughter's face when we board the boat. We have never left the boat without the christmas love and full bellies from the show. The food is always wonderful and my two grandsons are always ready to eat. Would recommend this experience to all and hope that it will become your family tradition.

"This was the best by far."
This was the best by far. We were seated at table #2 which was right by the corner of the stage. We got to see the entire show without anyone being in front of us and it was great. The entertainment was great and the dinner was fantastic. This was a special trip for my nephew who has been in a wheel chair since birth. He is now 42 years old and this was his first visit to tennessee. I wanted to do something special for him while we were there since his parents gave him the trip as a christmas present. I could not have asked for a better time nor could he. It was a surprise up until 10 minutes before we pulled into the parking lot. He had no clue what we were doing. So from the mongeau and labare family, thank you for making that day special for him.

We really enjoyed our lunch cruise on the general jackson. Living just outside the nashville area since june 2020, we wanted to experience all nashville has to offer. Loving to photograph the nashville skyline was a great incentive for me to take this cruise. The day was sunny, warm, & clear for november! The boat was so big and beautiful with multiple levels to enjoy the outdoors. Talking to guests from all over the us at the dining table was so much fun. Not to mention the food was very good as well as the service. The country music show after lunch was very good. There is so much talent in nashville and one of the vocalist was the niece of a couple at our lunch table from sc. I, jill, left the show a little early to go on deck and take some photos of the city when we reached the foot bridge at nissan stadium. I stayed on deck until we reached our destination back at opryland and just enjoyed the river and the big red paddle. I would highly recommend this cruise to add to your list while visiting nashville.

We had a great trip to nashville by starting it with a general jackson showboat ride. It was our first stop when we pulled into town, best decision ever! It was exciting to watch the excellent entertainers, the crew was friendly and helpful, and lunch was delicious (kudos to the chefs and servers). My only regret is that it wasn’t long enough. Thank you for great time.

The cruise was fun. It was my third. I would have liked to have more time to go outdoors and enjoy the scenery. Information about the river would also have been nice for the first timer who accompanied me on the cruise. We met lovely people at our table and enjoyed their company. The entertainment was much better than previous cruises. I would do it again!

Great afternoon on the general jackson. Entertainment was fantastic, each course of our meal was flavourful and the perfect temperature. The servers were definitely there to please any need to the point where they added an additional chair to the table to allow our entire party to sit together before we even had a chance to see if we could be accommodated. The ticket agent let them knowinutes before boarding for seamless seating on our part.

Excellent musicians. Loved the repertoire and presentations at the bar and at the dinner stage. The dinner was tasty with excellent service. (didn’t really like the waiters begging for tips at the end however.) this was truly a great experience except for the body crushing lineup at the bar. There was nowhere to sit and the closeness was stifling.

The general jackson showboat is a must if you visit nashville. We enjoyed a beautiful sunny afternoon on the river. It's a big boat! Fun to explore. We had a hard time finding country music in the many bars in town, but there's plenty of it during this amazing show. The talent is incredible, costume changes, and the history of country's biggest stars was just a joy. Best 2.5 hours and can't wait to go again!

Overall good but could have been better. Once on the boat the lines to get a beverage was way too long. Dinner was served too soon after launching. The dinner was okay and the show was very good. Then we docked. All of this adds up to not having any time to enjoy the sites or even just relaxing as you only can on a boat taking in being on a boat.

We had a great time on the general jackson showboat for a midday lunch cruise. There were only two of us but the people at our table were very friendly and the show started right after lunch, which was much better than i expected based on some other reviews. The chicken was done just right and the mac and cheese and green beans were also tasty. The staff was on the ball and got the food and drink orders out quickly. The pre-show and show were both entertaining and very well managed. The cast and crew did the tennessee legends proud with their renditions of many country hits. Costumes, lighting, sound and the band were all very well done and professional. We will be back again for a dinner cruise next time.

Every experience we had on the general jackson showboat was outstanding. The seating, servers, and food was outstanding. The show was the most surprising. We did not expect it to be so entertaining. We had two 23 year old with us and were not looking forward to the show. However, they thought it was the best part of the general jackson. Thank you for a great experience!

"Very glad i did this."
Very glad i did this. It was a lot of fun. The talent was amazing! The band playing on the top deck played traditional popular country. The lady who plays the fiddle is charlie daniels quality plus. Her voice was a little off (squealing) but i think she may have been loosing it a little from so many trips. The musicians in the river show were great. I even thought the food was good. The only thing i wish is that it was half an hour longer so i could have enjoyed sitting outside and enjoy the river. You are inside almost the entire time so you loose most of the cruise but my wife and i really enjoyed it.

Really didn't know what to expect when we got on the boat. But got to listen to two guys playing music while the bar was open called to our seats and who knew they had a beautiful auditorum/dining area on that boat. Our server explained how everything was going to happen and have us a time line. We were able to go out at a specified time between lunch and the sbow to take pictures of the nashville skyline. Good was fabulous and the show was better. We have show at our clubhouse often. The food is either good or hot but never like this place... Good and hot. The singers had great voices and they smiled and humor made it seem that they really enjoyed what they were doing.

"The show was entertaining."
The show was entertaining. Food was tasty, would be nice to have a food choice for a child or someone who has a more limited palate. It might be nice to have some audio along the river when there is no show. It’s not one of the most picturesque rivers i’ve ever been on…junk floating in the river and until you’re all the way downtown there’s not much to watch out the windows.

The show was good, as we loaded it was crowded at the upper bar as that's where most people went at the beginning. Seating in theatre was a bit crowded, drinks were not offered, nor would anyone refill a drink for us, which meant we had to leave our seat, return to stand in line for 15-20 minutes, then back to seat. Food was cold, presentation was nice, but not expected for the price. Also, no time to see what we passed outside on our way.

We weren't sure what to expect, but this trip was incredibly well-done! Got to hang out and watch some informal live music for awhile, then were seated for a surprisingly tasty 3-course meal with great service. We had plenty of heads-up and plenty of room to take in a fantastic view of downtown nashville from the showboat, then enjoyed a show from some seriously talented performers. Great food, great entertainment, great prices, great service - i wasn't expecting 5 stars but that's what it was! Booked the night before with ease through vacations made easy which was super convenient since our plans were up in the air.

My friend and i really enjoyed this overall however, the pacing of the activities could have been better. Lunch was being served at the time that the boat was passing by the city so many people missed that part of the river tour. Also, the wait staff was a little pushy about tips. That wasn't very classy. And finally it would have been better if the show started during the luncheon. Food was ok. A bit more creative menu would have been nice.

The only drawback was that it being a sold out show, the tables and chairs were very close together, and squeezing thru them was difficult, as you didn't want to disturb other guests.

This was one of the highlights of our vacation. We thought that at $98 per person we would get a nice boat ride on a beautiful vintage-looking riverboat with modest food and entertainment. What we got was a fantastic show put on by excellent performers in a “ vegas worthy “ presentation of an hour and a half or more. It was just great. The lunch ( included in the price) was excellent also and large portioned. You have all access to the boat with plenty of room everywhere for great views. Be sure to be outside as you cruise past nashville and enjoy the skyline. All the employees were personable and professional. What a wonderful time we had. You must do this. We did ours after we had checked out of our hotel and then drove home with a perfect send-off and gave us plenty to talk about on the drive home. Be sure to take pictures standing in front of the boat. Beautiful backdrop. Thanks to all.

Doing so did not give us enough time to really check out the boats paddle wheel or shops before dinner was served then the show was on....

Then when the show started, we were just amazed by the fantastic talent of all the musicians and singers - right through the years.

We throughly enjoy the dinner boat cruise. The food was superb and the entertainment was so good and the price was reasonable. Definitely recommend this.
