    Good food and large deck to chill up top. Was a cool vantage point from the Potomac. Planes were flying right above us, was a wild sight to see! Such a fun time!

    9 of my high school classmates and 2 visitors took the scenic lunch cruise on October 8, 2022. We really had a great time. The service was good, the food was good, just needs to make sure there is coffee added to the end of the meal.

    Food selection very minimal. They ran out of coffee before we started to the cruise. The experience wasn’t nearly as polished as I’d hoped
