Listen to the local blues legend, Shrimp City Slim, aboard the “Carolina Queen” and dig into a barbecue feast. This casual Charleston dinner cruise pairs live music with sunset views. Dig into pulled pork, mac-n-cheese, and wood-smoked chicken plus all the fixings. It’s a great way to spend a date night, a family outing, or an evening with friends.

We are glad the company is abiding by the CDC recommendations, but canceling for the foreseeable future and then refusing to issue full refunds is unacceptable. Re-booking and gift cards make sense for a rainy day, but not during a global crisis. As an international family we

Unfortunately, by the time we actually left the dock the sun had pretty much set, so in that regard, it wasn't much of a sunset cruise. Both the food and entertainment were good but the boat itself was a bit crowded making it difficult to really enjoy the ambiance of the

Like other passengers, we unfortunately went to the wrong address. The tickets (Trip Advisor) indicated that they departed from a different location for dates ranging from August-September. We asked a group docked on a boat, at said location, if they'd seen the BBQ cruise, they

Relaxing, good food and the music was good. Band could have taken a shorter break. Perhaps calling by table for dinner would be a good idea. But dinner was surprisingly pretty orderly. Overall a good experience.
