Excellent service with a smile, dinner very good, beautiful night view of downtown Nashville and Nissan Stadium on a historic river paddle boat. Add a most entertaining musical show to end the night, our anniversary celebration was wonderful. Would highly recommend

I was so glad I did this. A pleasant surprise, upon boarding, was that they had a band playing on the top deck & you could go listen to them before sitting for dinner. The food was very good & the show was great. The talent aboard this showboat was incredible. I did the dinner cruise & next time will try the lunch cruise. Definitely get the hotel transportation to the Showboat. They pick you up at your lobby & drop you right back off. Don't have to worry about UBER and the driver of the van for Gray Lines was very informative.

The waiters George and Samy were worth the whole trip! The food was the best we had had in our whole time in Nashville. And, the entertainment was very good.
