We went on the Dandy's Sun. brunch cruise last year and had a fabulous time, and this year was no different. The food and service are excellent and the views of Washington from the rooftop deck are unsurpassed. It made for a birthday to remember...continued

The event was very nice. There was a parking lot right near the boat dock which lets you park all day for $5.00. The boarding time was 11:30 but we got there around 11:00 and they let us board early. The staff was really nice and the food wasn't...continued

This was a great experience, except for the rain, which the Cruise could not control. I give it four stars because the entrance room decor and the ship itself are a bit on the humble side, but for the Goldstar price it was awesome (as usual). The...continued

We had a great time with my family. My father had no idea we were surprising him with this for Father's Day and he was floored. All you can eat and a boat tour. It was fun family time. The only thing I think didn't seem right is when it came to...continued

IT WAS LOVELY, EVEN THOUGH THE CHEERY BLOSSOMS WERE GONE. THE ATMOSPHERE OF THE DINING AREA WAS BEAUTIFUL,
THE VIEWS SPECTACULAR, AND THE SERVICE WAS FRIENDLY.

Of course, we had a perfect day, sunny, with temps in the 70's, and the cherry blossoms in full bloom. But my husband and I go out on Nina's Dandy several times a year, and we always enjoy this very relaxing trip.

This was fun and the food was good. Coffee, tea, soda is extra, as is tax so be aware. Parking needs to be paid in cash only.

We done the Dandy before, both for dinner and for brunch, so there were no surprises. The food was both tasty and plentiful, wait staff were excellent, and the views of DC from the boat were lovely. We lucked out with a beautiful day, to boot, so...continued

Even though, with the tip, it was still $50 a person, it was well worth it for a 2 1/2 hr cruise! Service was excellent, food OK, sitting on the top deck with my family on a beautiful day seeing the sites of Washington "Priceless."

Had a wonderful lunch cruise. Service was excellent. Unfortunately due to the rain and river level, we were unable to motor up to the memorials. But delicious lunch with good friends made it a wonderful afternoon.

Nina's Dandy may not be as fancy looking as some of the other cruise boats but the crew did a great job with check-in, serving, honoring many birthdays & anniversarys, and settling payments. The meal was better than expected. There was live piano...continued

The crew is very professional, attentive and catering. The venue is very clean, even the onboard bathrooms. All the tables are seated by the windows so you have a view outside no matter where you’re seated. It would have been nice to see more...continued
