Food was delicious, views were fabulous and entertainment was excellent. Staff were very friendly. Alcoholic beverages were very pricey. Alcoholic beverage should be included in the price of ticket.

The General Jackson Lunch Cruise was very good I would recommend this cruise to everyone that visit Nashville.

Very efficient boarding procedure, and the actual river boat was spectacular. The show... a mixture of R and B, Country and Western and 'Rockabilly' was pure Nashville sound... Really good. The food service was efficient, and the food OK... so overall a really worthwhile thing too do in Nashville.

Everything was great from the food to the entertainment. All the performers were fantastic but Amber was particularly awesome on the fiddle! Would definitely recommend.

Our family thoroughly enjoyed the showboat lunch tour! We were in Nashville to celebrate the USS Hubbard Naval Reunion with our Dad. The food was very good and our server was terrific. The show was quite enjoyable, with some updated music.The bus service to and from our hotel was terrific!
