Intimate Dining Experience

A romantic dining experience for two or similar intimate private seating for a small group of friends. Reservations limited to guarantee your own private table. Same delicious food and attentive service, same scenery. Quieter. More time to enjoy the outer decks.
Just picture it - cocktails on the upper deck, dinner served about 7:30 in the dining room. An intermezzo after the first two courses of soup and salad......... to stretch your legs and breathe in the scenery. Savor the entree inside, then dessert and coffee served on the upper deck just as the sun slides behind the horizon.

Luncheon Cruise Sundays in July too!
While some of our guests have asked for a less expensive meal cruise on Sundays, others have urged us to devote all Sundays during the season to the Champagne Brunch. Our compromise solution? Luncheon cruises starting July 7th and going through July 28th. Boarding 12:00 noon Sailing 12:30-2:30 pm. $37/$18.

The Champagne Brunch showcases the imagination and culinary talents of Chef Jim and his staff. This is not your usual brunch buffet! Our signature item is our chef-smoked foods, including cheddar & provolone cheeses and a side of smoked salmon. If you like that smoked taste, you can't get enough of this! The hot and cold buffet tables are laden with an astonishing array of items. Weather permitting, we set up the cold buffet on the upper deck so you can enjoy the views, the sun and the air while you eat. We then call you down by party to go through the hot line. New this year is a carving station with Certified Angus Prime Rib of Beef so tender you can cut it with a fork as well as bottomless Bloody Marys or Mimosas. Afterwards, we serve dessert and coffee either on the upper deck or in the dining room, wherever we find you! It's a boat! We think you want to be outside as much as possible!
WHAT THEY SAY........we found the W.W. Durant to be absolutely spotless. We found the food to be perfectly prepared, delicious and served promptly and efficiently. Did we get our money's worth? YES. Will we do it again? YES....Our best to such a fine family run business....
