For our rehearsal dinner, we hoped to showcase Milwaukee's downtown and lakefront, and we could not be happier that we booked a dinner cruise on the Harbor Lady . Our booking contact, Jordan, was very responsive to all of our questions, and her responses were informative and efficient. When another couple booked an event on the boat we were originally looking at, Jordan and her supervisors accommodated our party on a different vessel, even though they typically rented out the replacement vessel for larger parties. They knew they could make more on a larger party who may book at a later date, and yet still allowed us to reserve it anyway - incredible customer service! The pricing was very reasonable , and the contract negotiation went smoothly. The cruise itself was an absolute hit - we cannot endorse it enough! The boat was in spectacular condition. It is impressive from the outside, and clean and well-kept on the inside. We decided to keep things simple by not planning any decorations for our rehearsal dinner. And to be honest, in retrospect, we would not have done it any differently. The boat is beautiful on her own, and the interior lighting and table lighting provide a wonderful ambiance. You could certainly decorate if desired, but rest assured, it wouldn't be necessary. The staff on the boat was incredibly polite and provided superior service. It would be difficult to describe just how numerous the compliments of the food were, with several guests (with well-trained palates) remarking that it was among the best steaks they had ever had. Please strongly consider this venue. It really is a wonderful combination of elements - a beautiful and classy venue that showcases the city, with constantly-changing scenery throughout the evening. You'll have a gorgeous view of the sunset and the skyline with your family and friends, and an opportunity to enjoy fresh air outside at your leisure, while being treated to incredible food and atmosphere.
