Let’s be honest. Dinner boats are not known for their food. People reserve a dinner cruise, not for the food, but for the scenery and the novelty.
Raquette Lake is not on the way to anywhere! It’s remote. It’s a drive. But guess what? We’ve got it all! We’ve got the scenery. We’ve got the history. And we’ve got the food. We’re passionate about the food we serve; it has to be so good you can’t wait to tell your friends and come back with them. We’ve done our job if we exceed your expectations. We’ve done our job if you return to dine again and again. We’ve done our job if you become a raving fan.
Dining aboard the Durant is an experience for the senses! Tantalize your taste buds and feast your eyes on our menu of mouth-watering delights, artfully presented. Complement the exquisite tastes with the exquisite views as we cruise on Raquette Lake. Chef Jim Pohl, a 2003 graduate of the Culinary Institute of America and his culinary staff create meals you will never forget.
Beverage Manager Rachel Pohl rotates her wine selection periodically to keep it fresh and exciting and she’s always imagining and creating new specialty drinks.
The brother-sister pair make quite the team when it comes to planning and executing one of our wine or beer pairing dinners.
