Overall, this was a great experience that 2 long-time DC residents thoroughly enjoyed. The food was better then we expected-I had the prime rib and my husband had the stuffed shrimp. As another reviewer stated, don't go for the food, go for the...continued

Perfect for an anniversary celebration or a special event. The Dandy offers a cozy setting for dinner and dancing along with capital views and the floor/window design virtually guarantees no bad views. Food was tasty, service very good. Music...continued

Taxes (12 dlls fuel and other taxes), tips (15%-18%) and beverages are not included in Goldstar´s deal. It is important to let your clients be aware of this before payment, so it doesn´t take them by surprise once on board. The cruise is nice but...continued

The atmosphere was wonderful, as was the service. The food was average, but the views made up for any part that was lacking in the meal.

The boat was very pleasant, the service was good, and the food exceeded my (high) expectations. The stuffed shrimp was excellent; the prime rib was merely good.

It was a fun night out.

The dinner cruise is sold as a 2.5 hour excursion in the mid to high price range. Dining options include prime rib and cod, among others

The event is less than regular normal event, boring in a way, nothing special at all ... the guys were not smily at all and not friendly ... the music was very old ...

The food was ok, though overpriced. The water level was high which meant we couldn't go under the 14th street bridge. Instead we went up the Anacostia to see the new baseball stadium. It was pleasant, but not worth the money.

The food was good. The pianist was fine. My wife booked on lineso it was prepaid. I realized it was a cash bar ans the drink prices were reasoable but the added fees (i.e. fuel charge) was unanticipated.

The inside of the boat looked a little old and outdated. The food was good, but for the amount you have to pay I would expect something more fancy than Keebler butterfly crackers and WisPride port wine cheese spread as hors do'oeuvres! It was a...continued

The scenery and views of the city are beautiful. The weather was perfect and we enjoyed sitting on the top deck. A very relaxing and romantic atmosphere. The food is average, though. It was disappointing that we could not take our food to eat...continued

This dinner and cruise far exceeded our expectations, which were based on reviews we had read. The staff could not have been more courteous or professional and we found the ship to be clean and in top-notch condition. The dinner was out of this...continued

This dinner boat cruise was nice. The views were great of the monuments and all. A few things that didn't make a 5 star. The food was as expected (from reading the reviews). But the price of the entire event was just so much. I could not have...continued

This was a great, relaxing way to spend an evening with my mother and share the city, while escaping the August heat! Lovely food and live piano music during dinner, followed by DJ dancing.
