Fabulous! The price is right! Food was tasty. Service friendly. LOVED that we did the North Shore (I've been aboard many times over the year and we've always gone south). Weather perfect! A magical night!

We enjoyed the afternoon lunch cruise from Tahoe City to Emerald Bay. The commentary was informative, the view was spectacular and the lunch was excellent. We had the chicken caesar salad.

We had fun on the cruise on this wonderful lake. Didn’t try the food but people around us were complementary of the sandwich and salad they ordered. The lake is just spectacular, very little comercual decelopment which makes it neautiful!

If I could, I would rate it a six. Fantastic cruise. Sunset. Full moon. Beautiful. But, best of all was the best prime rib I can remember. We're going to do this again next summer.

You can look online at the menu or you can call them and ask if they have Vegan Options. We did not go during the Happy Hour.
