The weather was Cold. I wore a hoody and a winter coat. Thought my hoody would be warm enough during performance. But should have put my coat on..

Share anything else here. Just start typing...It would have been helpful to have a sign to turn off Wabasha (to the left). It would have saved time and driving because I was on the wrong side of Wabasha. A nice young man helped me w/directions using his phone! (I forgot to check your site for driving directions before I left for St. Paul).

Confusing access-ignore street closed signs to get to showboat!

There is some construction going on around Harriett Island, and it's easy to get completely turned around. Arrive early to figure out where the place is.

You can buy drinks and popcorn at the theater. There is a free parking lot right by the boat. It is a little tricky to find.

We went from a downtown appointment to the play, with time in between for lunch. In driving around St. Paul we couldn't seem to locate anything, so we went to the showboat and got tickets. We headed to Josephs which is excellent close by. However, at the other end of that strip is a place called the Wabasha Deli. It was great. Prices very reasonable and the friendliest and most helpful staff there. We will certainly go back. We also saw they had a wonderful private dining area if anyone goes with a group of people.

I was told, if you are part of a large group, you can opt for a buffet dinner before the show but this is not an option for an individual or a small group. There is a concession stand for drinks and popcorn. You can bring your drinks inside the theatre.

We came early to get a free spot but there were ample parking spaces even at the time of boarding.
