Disclaimer: We run our Dinner Cruises on two different boats with two different layouts. Please let us know if you are handicap so we can recommend the boat that has the dining area on the first floor (Island Queen) before booking at 901-527-2628 to check availability. You must also select you need handicap seating to ensure accomodations in advance. If you cannot select Island Queen boat upon booking it might not be available. Dinner Cruises typically sell out at least a week in advance. All tickets must be paid for in full, at the time of reservation.

Parking is not on site. The closest parking to our boarding location is ACROSS THE STREET from 119 N Riverside Drive Memphis, TN 38103. GPS will bring you to the TN Welcome Center but DO NOT PARK THERE. You will see a “Riverboat Parking Sign” at the entrance of the fenced in lot directly across the street from the Welcome Center. This is a paid parking lot. To park here you will use the instructions on the signs throughout the parking lot to pay on the parking app. We do not own this lot. Once you park you will take the sidewalk South towards the boats. You will pass the River Garden Park on the left before you will be able to physically see the boats on the river. The boats are located at the intersection of Riverside & Monroe. You will see the ramp that goes into the Cobblestone Landing at the top of the hill at Riverside & Monroe where the metal gate is. THIS IS A 8-10 MINUTE WALK. If you have any guests who require assistance due to a disability or handicap, please drop them off at the boarding location BEFORE parking. You may drive down the cobblestones to the ramp for easier access. Please be mindful of not blocking the walkway to get onto the dock while doing so. This is ONLY for drop off purposes.

We will open the white gate on the silver gangway ramp at boarding time. Please be patient as the area is under construction and we are required to use this alternate location. The walk from the parking lot to the boats may be difficult for handicap guests. The City of Memphis and Memphis River Parks Partnership are currently redeveloping the entire Memphis Riverfront. Please keep in mind, this is a project that will not be completed until 2023 and we are docked on the City of Memphis’ Riverfront. You will see our boarding location undergoing a remodel when you visit us for one of our tours. The lower the river level, the farther the walk down to the boats. Due to liability purposes and the City Construction Project, we do not have a way to transport you up or down the hill. Please feel free to bring your walker, wheelchair, cane, etc if you have mobility issues.

There is no dress code but most our of guests dress casually – semi-formal.

We do not offer group discounts. If you are booking a large group by individually booking tickets, please make sure you but put the name of the group or party you would like to sit with in the box during your checkout process. It reads: “Would you like to sit with another group or party?” Please also make sure you select the name of the boat your party is on. If you do not specify you are with a specific group/party on a separate reservation you will not be seated together.

If you are celebrating a Birthday, you may bring a cake or cupcakes on board. Please do not bring candles or sparklers. We also ask that you bring the proper utensils and/or plates to accommodate this yourselves.
