Quotes & Highlights

Mystic Blue’s buffets feature a wide variety of delicious options.  See menus for their brunch buffet, lunch buffet, dinner buffet, Lakefront Escape happy hour buffet, holiday buffet, Fireworks dinner buffet and Club Mystic moonlight buffet; (Menus are subject to change.)


Mystic Blue. Dine. Dance. Drink. Let your hair down. The setting is laid back yet contemporary. The service is great. The view is amazing. Imagine the beautiful Chicago skyline as it reaches for miles North and South with the lake resting at its feet.

Enjoy a Chicago dinner cruise, or perhaps a brunch, lunch, fireworks or moonlight cruise on any of three climate-controlled decks. Mystic Blue’s very friendly staff will seat you at your table for a two or three-hour cruise. Reminiscent of ocean-going cruises, Mystic Blue_ _offers cabaret-style seating.

Throughout your cruise you will be welcome to explore the boat’s many observation decks. On lunch and dinner cruises, enjoy a three-course meal, prepared fresh onboard daily and presented buffet-style. Chicago Tribune food critic Janet Franz said, “the food is remarkably good.”

Mystic Blue is fun! The interactive DJs play a variety of genres of music, and all three decks feature dance floors.

_Please note:

For evening cruises, appropriate attire is business casual to dressy. For men, appropriate attire includes slacks and a polo or button-down shirt. For women, nice slacks, capri pants or a sundress are recommended. They discourage collarless t-shirts, jeans, shorts or sneakers. _
