The dinner cruise lasts three hours.
Dandy Restaurant Cruises is a fine-dining dinner-boat pioneer with more than 30 years of successful operating experience. They are world-renowned for excellent food and service in an elegant atmosphere.
Dandy Restaurant Cruises are moored in beautiful, historic old town Alexandria, Virginia, only 15 minutes from the nation's capital. They cruise past the national monuments to Georgetown and back to beautiful, historic old town Alexandria.
The Dandy Cruise Ships' menu features signature dishes that are prepared fresh daily in the ships' kitchen, using only the finest ingredients. The menu is always free of trans fats. Nothing is fried, and any sautéeing is done in olive oil (see an article about the ships' kitchen's commitment to healthy food). All dinner cruises are five-course, table service, candlelight dinners with dancing on the 464-square-foot marble dance floor.
