The wrong boat is listed on the confirmation email, it had the Spirit of Chicago when it was the Spirit of Navy Pier. They do not honor dress code, sport casual no gym shoes or flip flops-that’s not true because there were a plether of each. The bathrooms do not lock, I was urinating and someone opened the door😡 The food was disgusting, no flavor, pasta dry, just hated all of it. Drinks watered down with Syrup, mixers and ice. For almost 500$ very disappointed. The fire works was the only thing we enjoyed! Do NOT GO!


Great service and very pleasant atmosphere! Our group was happy with the food and the music as well.


We celebrated are 10yr anniversary. We had a great time! I would definitely recommend this to anyone..


The hostess Erica was excellent with her service. Would recommend a raise for her! Great experience👍🏽


Dinner cruise on a cold rainy day in Chicago in June. Venue was very nice. Food was tasty for a buffet. Downside they didnt do a very good job of replacing food quickly when it ran out. Staff was very nice and we did enjoy the firework display. Dj music to wrap up the night. Scenic views and fireworks made for a very enjoyable Chicago experience.


This was an amazing experience! From the moment the staff recognized we were about to board their boat until the very last step off of the walkway, they made us feel welcomed and like nothing mattered outside of having a good time. I really appreciate you guys making my birthday feel like one of a kind. Shoutout to Artisha! 🫶


The cruise was great! The bartender is an idiot...$30 for 2 poorly made drinks, don't bother getting drinks


Artisha (I’m sorry if I have the spelling wrong) and her assistant did a great job at assisting us. I’d love if everywhere I went we had servers as kind and professional as all of you. Servers even danced with us, made it a great time when our vibe was low and energy was too. Even with the bad weather. This was a little escape in the middle of a very hard weekend, it means the world.


We had a wonderful time in Chicago and with this being the best to top it off the crew were very nice and the food was delicious!! Also, the DJ and Fireworks were spectacular!! This is a most to do in Chicago!!


The fireworks show was the Best ever, never seen it like that before loved it. We will be going again very soon.
