General Jackson Showboat

2812 Opryland Drive

Our 300-foot paddlewheel riverboat is one of the largest showboats in the country. It boasts four massive decks with a beautiful two-story Victorian Theater located in the center of the boat where live music shows are performed. Both midday and evening cruises offer a variety of entertainment options throughout the year. You'll always find something new just around the bend. Holiday cruises begin mid-November each year, and special cruises includes a festive New Year's Eve celebration. The General Jackson is an experience you'll only find in Music City!

We went for the lunch cruise. Was pleasantly surprised with the dinner theater deck...huge! Tables beautifully set up and the food was the biggest surprise...EXCELLENT! The show was just the right length of time and the performers were awesome! After dinner there was a singer on the top deck...perfect day !

Great place for dinner and a show. As a nashville native I love to take advantage and see all the sights. You will not be disappointed here. Delicious food and the best trip down country lane. They serve great cocktails and make sure you purchase the photos they take.

Show was really good and the ride down the river was nice especially when you got to downtown. The views were amazing. The food was not bad I'd say, the steak was a little over cooked for me and kinda dry which I understand because of how they cook and serve everyone at once. The potatoes were very good as well as the brocolini. I'd definitely do this trip again even with that said.

Always a great experience! Especially for Nashville tourists. When we have family cone down from Upstate New York they always want to get on the GJ. I've been to both the day show and the night show. And both were great. I will recommend spending a little extra money and get a Captains seat. You receive very special treatment and get great perks.

We attended the Saturday evening performance, June 30. The musical show was fantastic. Voices and performers were over the top GREAT. The food was absolutely the WORST!!!! The beef was shoe leather. GO ANYWAY. Enjoy the show and boat.
