Very enjoyable, even for a "local". The weather was great (necessary to fully enjoy the cruise). The food was of good quality and prepared well. Our rare prime rib was as good as you would get except at one of the premium steak houses. The...continued

We had a wonderful night. Food, seating, scenery, boat was good. Service coud be a little more friendlier. It was disappointing that boat could not go under bridge to see Georgetown, due to high tide. Overall, we had a wonderful and romantic...continued

We've been to this cruise 3 times already. It's a good option to do something special or different around DC. The views are nice however it's better in the warmer months when you can enjoy the views on the upper open deck.

**Nice to do ONCE**

The ride was great, the crew was really nice, the night view was lovely, and my beau and I really enjoyed our evening - the overall experience was good. However, there were a few things that made it less than...continued

Beautiful evening! Saw 2 fireworks displays. The Dandy travels a good distance. Prime rib was great - a bit rare, but tasty. Fresh fruit, decent salad and nice dessert selection. Beware the hidden charges - "fuel charges, etc" And remember,...continued

Being on the Potomac is a really beautiful perspective on the monuments and bridges along the way (Lincoln, Memorial, G'town). Food was better than I expected. Music was good for couples dancing. Be sure the Dandy does not try to charge you for...continued

Cons: We were the only people on the boat under the age of 50. The food was nothing to write home about...It was kind of like a diner on the water. Also, there are other charges including gratuity, tax, drinks and even fuel. We got a bottle of...continued

Couldn't be more pleased. The food, service, and entertainment were first rate. The views of our beautiful nation's capitol were spectacular. A special and memorable night.

Food was good, service was very good, views were great. Candlelit dinner, romantic music, dancing. Everything was awesome but we were slightly concerned when we saw a large crew of kids waiting to board. Then saw balloons tied to the chairs -...continued

Food was mediocre, but staff were very friendly and courteous. Boat was very old and so was the crowd. We were there to celebrate an anniversary. It was different, but it could be much better for how pricey it is.Seeing DC on the boat and the...continued

Food was terrific. I chose the shrimp (which was delicious), but wish I would have chosen the prime rib! The views and atmosphere were awesome as were the wait staff.

Great overall experience! Only thing was with the bill they tried to charge me again (and at full price) for the cruise even though I had already paid through Goldstar. I told the staff the problem and it was quickly resolved. Great drinks!

The service and wait staff were excellent.

I decided to take my husband on this dinner cruise because it's something we've never done before and we had a blast.

From the first glance at the bot we were a little skeptical, but from the moment we stepped foot on the boat we had so much...continued

I just experienced Nina's Dandy with my girlfriend. We were running late but check-in was a breeze when we got there. We were even still able to choose our own seats. We ordered the prime rib - came with green beans and a baked potato and food...continued
