Miller riverboat is unlike any other experience we offer, allowing guests the first-hand experience of passing through the McAlpine Locks.

Steamboat Supper Cruise

Come aboard for a hearty and delicious meal while you enjoy the sights and sounds of the river as we show you the town from an all-new perspective—out on the water. Grab a cocktail from our full bar, then sit back, relax and enjoy your meal. This is a two-hour excursion.

Indulge in a truly special evening aboard the historic Belle of Louisville for our Captain’s Dinner!
