Although tattered ragamuffins with gambling hands are prone to dining with the fishes, it’s the esteemed members of land-society who dine atop the fishes. Merge seafaring and supping proclivities with today’s Groupon for one seat on a three-hour dinner cruise from Dandy Restaurant Cruises. Choose between the following options:

  • For $44, you get a cruise on a Sunday–Friday night (an $88 value).
  • For $49, you get a cruise on a Saturday night (a $98 value).

Dandy Restaurant Cruise hosts enchanting evenings of dinner and dancing on its star ship Nina’s Dandy. During the course of three hours, riverfarers can indulge in a gourmet four-course meal, breathtaking views of the Potomac, and romantic dancing by candlelight or underneath the stars. The menu abounds with tasty selections such as crab-stuffed shrimp, veggie-friendly pasta primavera and prime rib as tender as an air kiss blown by three of the Four Tops. Postdinner goings on include shimmying on the marble-topped dance floor to the live orchestrations of the boat’s jazz pianist along with shore-sighting of national monuments, the Nationals ballpark, and Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s favorite fishing spot.

Boarding begins on Sunday through Thursdays at 6 p.m., with a cruising time of 6:30 p.m.–9:30 p.m. On Fridays and Saturdays boarding begins at 6:30 p.m., with a cruising time of 7 p.m.–10 p.m. Business or cocktail attire is recommended. Tables accommodate 2–10 diners; please call with party size and Groupon number(s). Tax and gratuity are not included.

Dandy Restaurant Cruises

Year round, Dandy Fine Dining Restaurant Cruise sails down the Potomac in riverboats with live music, dancing, and gourmet continental cuisine. Passengers snap photos of cherry trees fluttering in pastel pink from the expansive upper deck on springtime cruises, or savor prime rib and stuffed shrimp while watch the president balance a star on top of the Washington Monument in the winter. Cruises embark from Alexandria and glide up to Georgetown before making their way back to port.

It was really nice and beautiful and the food was delicious My husband and I really enjoyed our time in the boat.

Awesome! Food was great and so was service. Cheaper than other dinner cruises and just as good if not better.
Natasha L. · January 5, 2017
The staff were very friendly and the food was good. However, the first two hours were plagueed with live piano music that was off key. Luckily they turned on real music the last hour of the tour., and everyone on board had fun. :0)
