doing a seminar on a boat was new for us. However, everyone was very accommodating and helpful. The lunch buffet was tasty - the cookies were great. We would definitely do it again

We knew we had found our wedding venue as we were walking up to the River Queen. From our first conversation until we were walking away from our reception, Sharon and her crew were nothing short of fantastic! Sharon laid out a plan for the day that let us say our vows onboard, dance our first dance, eat fabulous food, and sail into the sunset! We carried the riverboat theme from our invites to our decor and even my 'riverboat gambler' attire. Planning with Sharon was simple and straightforward so we could focus on the many other intricacies for the perfect day. And perfect it was.! Melissa attended to our every need, removing that last bit of worry, allowing us to just enjoy our family and friends and the perfect weather! Everyone raved about the food and the service and I am happy to give the River Queen a 5-star rating!

I would recommend this venue to anyone that wants a non complex wedding, where everything is done for you with the exception of the decorating. The staff was amazing with helping me answer all my ridiculous questions, and pleasantly I might add. Definitely choose The River Queen or Belle for your wedding venue, we loved it!!

Our experience on The River Belle was everything we could have hoped for. Our guests raved about our event, the food, the staff, the view - everything was perfect. We highly recommend the River Belle and it's staff - both in the office and on board. Just an excellent experience from beginning to end.

I truly cannot say enough nice things about the River Queen and their staff. We got married this past weekend, and of course, a clipper system came and ruined all our plans of getting married on the beach. The staff at the River Queen was so responsive, and allowed us to change the ceremony to the boat with only one day left before the wedding. Once we got on the boat, we were immediately greeted by the fantastic staff members who worked our wedding. Throughout the night they were making sure that we were okay, providing us with information about what was going to happen next, and making sure all our guests were okay. The staff truly went above and beyond to make sure that we were having a good time, and even helped me when I was having dress issues and helped get the cake out of my hair!! If I could give the River Queen higher than a 5.0/5.0 I would, and I would not have changed a single thing. I cannot thank them enough for how great they made our wedding night.

Dear Bailey,

Thank you for your review. I greatly appreciate it. Even though mother nature did not cooperate, we were so happy that the ceremony was performed on the boat and that everything went well. It was a pleasure working with you. All of us here at the River Queen wish you and James many years of happiness.

Everyone I spoke with from my initial phone call for information to the night of the event was friendly, informative and responsive to all my questions and needs. I would recommend them to anyone who is planing a special event. They made my daughter's Sweet 16 a magical night she will always remember.
