Nautica Queen Restaurant Review

: Aboard the triple-decker Nautica Queen --- which sails daily, rain or shine --- you’ll dine at linen-topped tables in a spacious, window-walled room as the boat cruises Cleveland’s lakefront and sails up the meandering Cuyahoga River for a tour of Whiskey Island, Wendy Park, the Port of Cleveland and the city skyline. The lavish buffets served on the lunch and dinner cruises have something for everyone, but don’t expect to be blown away: peel and eat shrimp, chicken piccata and prime rib are standard offerings. After all, the food is secondary to the view and the novelty of dining afloat. After dinner, head topside for a selfie, or indulge in a wind-in-the-hair stroll around the deck.
