    We loved the Moshulu for dinner. The ship is historic, unique and beautiful. The outside bar was too hot to sit. The service at the inside bar and table was excellent. The bartender made a perfect negroni but I'm pretty sure that was grapefruit and not orange in it and we can't eat grapefruit. Everything has gotten expensive, so I'm not sure I should knock it for value, but it's a bit pricey. The bathroom could've been cleaner. The area behind the sink was not cleaned that day. The employees were all hard working and pleasant. We'd return for another occasion.

    We had a party of 7 for dinner to celebrate my husband's birthday. It was refreshing to see so many families and couples young and old enjoying themselves and dressed so beautifully. Everyone in our party ordered a different entree and everyone loved what they ordered. It was our server Michael who made the evening. He was so engaging and ensured that we had an exceptional dining experience. Thank you Michael!

    My family and I took my mom here for her 77th birthday. The food was really good. The service was good. Our server made a few mistakes with our order but he made it right. I forget his name but I hope the tip we left showed our appreciation.

    Its rottenness is both inherent and cosmetic; it is culinarily insipid and morally insidious. Food quality is terrible even for desperately hungry Philly housewife (Waffle House on the river)

    Booked seats on the top deck and were sat inside because of a private event taking up the whole deck. The private events were a bunch of college kids jumping and rocking the boat. “Boneless roasted half chicken” that my wife ordered because she hates bones came with a giant bone in it. The ambiance was great and service was nice if not a bit slow but the food was absolutely disappointing.
