Showboat Branson Belle Lunch & Dinner Cruises
Me and my husband were visiting my mother-in-law in missouri and decided to take our two kids (ages 9 and 15) and go hop on the branson belle because we thought it would be a fun family event!! Some relatives of mine had told me about it and how they had a blast and we thought we would try it out!!! The food was very delicious. Actually, one of the best meals i've ever had in my life. I especially enjoyed the dessert!! The service was great, and the show was pretty good as well. My kids especially loved the talking dogs act as did my husband and i. I would definitely recommend the branson belle to anyone looking for good food, good service, and most importantly a great time!!!!
