While “rollin’ down the river,” you’ll enjoy stunning views, a delicious meal freshly prepared by our chefs and toe-tapping entertainment in our two-story Victorian Theater in the center of the boat.

One of the largest showboats ever built, the grand General Jackson Showboat is an elegant triumph of American ingenuity. With its elegant lacy filigree and stately design, the boat is reminiscent of the opulence of the American Victorian era.

Showboats have long been a colorful part of our nation’s history, and this most unique Nashville attraction epitomizes the grace and grandeur of the Old South.

The General Jackson Showboat is named after the first steamboat to operate on the Cumberland River in 1817 which was named after President Andrew Jackson, whose historic home—The Hermitage—is 15 minutes from the dock.

Built by the largest inland shipbuilder in the United States, Jeffboat, located in Indiana, the General Jackson was launched on the Cumberland River on April 20, 1985.

We came here for a special NYE event, and it was an absolute BLAST! We didn't have any of the negative experiences others described. We sat in the top balcony straight across from the stage and had a great view of the stage. For this event, there was no buffet, but a set menu and the food was brought to us. There was plenty of food and it was good (I just didn't care for the filet - it was kinda like a thick version of a tv dinner Salisbury Steak, but the goat cheese salad was great, and the veggies and crab cake were all really good! The chocolate cake at the end was layered with mousse and that was pretty great, too). Our server was SO fun and sweet and helpful, and kept us posted on when we'd be downtown to be able to step out and check out the fabulous downtown views from the river. The selling point do this event was that there was a dance floor set up in front of the stage. We danced like crazy while the amazing band played - they really were fabulous!!! It was all the music you'd expect to hear at a wedding or something, and they mixed in a bunch of slow songs with the fast, dance ones. It was really fun, and they played some classic group dance songs when the band took a break. There was a toast at midnight and they released balloons, too! I thought it was pretty great that the band played for another half hour after docking, so there wasn't a mad dash to the doors. It was so much fun and probably the best NYE celebration I've ever attended!

A great Nashville To-Do rather visiting or living in the area. Great entertainment, good drinks and food. I'd recommend the day show over the night show, but the food offering for dinner is better than the lunch offering. Definitely get your ticket!

This showboat is the final boss of the touristy things you can do in Nashville. BUT- it is incredibly fun. The food, the view, the entertainment. It's worth going at least once. We did the Rollin' on the River evening show and the performers were very talented. I was riveted to my seat the entire time. I loved the virgin strawberry daiquiri I got and props to my husband for bringing the souvenir glass back in one piece in his carry on! Shout out to the random guy in the trees along the dark river bank who screamed at us and revved a chainsaw. We got a good laugh about that. Remember to bring cash to tip your waitstaff!

general jackson riverboat nashville

The boat was a great tourist thing to do. I definitely recommend for a group outting or celebration. Location behind the mall with free parking was great idea.. they offered pictures before getting on the boat, buffet style dinner two meat choices, carb, vegetable and a salad. The food was plenty and warm and delicious. We sat and waited till the end to get our food not to have to wait in line and it was a good choice there was still plenty of food. Long line for the bar. We lucked out with great seats by the stage so we didn't feel crowded. They did a great Christmas show I left like i was on a cruise line vacation. Nice view of downtown Nashville. You didn't even feel the boat moving. I definitely enjoyed it for an excuse to dress up and go out. We even mer some wonderful people at our table.

general jackson riverboat nashville

Took the afternoon lunch cruise. The food is served buffet style and it was just ok. Loved our table and seats at table 16. Would not choose the captain's table, not worth the upgraded price. The one hour show was very entertaining. I recommend this activity - it was a clear day and cruising on the river was beautiful and relaxing. My friends and I agree it was a good choice and worth doing when in Nashville!

general jackson riverboat nashville

I was a little worried because I get seasick and the girls aren't excited about boats. However, this was all of our best boat experiences ever! Everyone that we spoke to was friendly and kind. The kids were just talking about how much they missed salads now that we were not in California, and our first course was a Caesar salad. The kids loved that chicken nuggets were an option for the little kids meals. For the adult meals, the chicken was tender and succulent and the crab cake wasn't too salty. The drinks were so large that when my glass was empty, I was able to put both of my hands into the glass and there was still room for 2 other hands. The service was attentive, and we found out that we were the only ones at our shared table that tipped the waitstaff at the end which is just something that thoughtful people should think about. The ship was so fun for the kids to wander around and look at the large paddle as it makes ripples in the water as we move past. The mild 70 degrees Fahrenheit weather was also a plus for our leisurely walk around the deck. The show was so fun! The kids were dancing when they were listening to music that they never heard before. It was just a wonderful experience that we would love to try again.

This one was definitely worth the trip. For the price, you get a cute cruise ship style show, a very well done buffet, you do sit at a table with others (I love that, my husband not so much, LOL) a beautiful paddle boat ride along the Cumberland. The pulled pork and potato salad were both fantastic. My hubby really enjoyed the macaroni and cheese. The show was a tribute to Nashville legends. It was cute and very entertaining. We watched about 1/2 of the show and went outside to get a couple of cocktails and walk around the boat. The entire thing is about 3 hours, which really is a good value for the money paid. I would recommend it, and if we were in Nashville with strangers, I would definitely bring them on this .

A very cute activity complete with dinner and a show! I would say the at the boast could use some upgrades to really help elevate the experience. I was disappointed that the boat was broken today and I had just a dreadful view of dock. The staff was amazing 5 's and I really enjoyed the salad and my mixed drinks! The general dinner food I would say was largely bland with the expectation of the crab cakes.

general jackson riverboat nashville

Had a great time on the General Jackson showboat in Nashville, TN. We started off with lunch which was served buffet style... once the boat pushed off the show started being with a tribute to the country stars that put Nashville on the map... these entertainers were excellent. We really enjoyed the performances.

general jackson riverboat nashville

Bravo! What a great show, entertainment from when you enter the ship till the journey end. However, Very disappointed with the quality of food at the buffet. Adequate bathrooms around the ship. Love the upper deck where you get a nice view of downtown once the show is over. Drinks are expensive but understandable. Water and tea was unlimited but expect to tip the waiter. I hope they work on the quality of the food.

America’s River Roots will bring ‘many eyes & dollars’ to Greater Cincinnati in 2025

CINCINNATI (WXIX) - In honor of America’s 250th birthday, a nationally well-known event, known as America’s River Roots, is coming to Greater Cincinnati to host the anniversary party.

There is a lot of excitement surrounding River Roots as it is expected to bring hundreds of thousands of people to the Queen City to celebrate along the Ohio River on Oct. 9-12, 2025.

“America’s River Roots will focus attention on the Ohio River Valley region and its impact on the nation’s growth and shaping of our diverse cultures,” said Rick Greiwe, Event Co-chair. “The event will deepen this awareness with roots music, river cuisine and cultural experiences along our world-class riverfront. Area residents will connect with our common roots and visitors will discover the heritage of America’s inland river culture.”

The event is also somewhat of a reminder of Cincinnati’s past: Tall Stacks , a once-successful every-four-year tradition where people and steamboats would come together along the Ohio River to celebrate the Midwest’s heritage.

Tall Stacks scrapped for next year in Cincinnati

On Wednesday, state and local officials gathered at the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center to discuss a few of the details as to what people can expect.

A cultural preview

Cincinnati native, GRAMMY Award-winning artist, and founder of the band, The National , Bryce Dessner will be the musical curator for America’s River Roots in 2025. He will be in charge of compiling and selecting a group of well-known and emerging artists within the roots genre to perform throughout the four-day event.

Additionally, The National will perform a tribute to roots music that weekend.

Guitarist and keyboardist for The National, Bryce Dessner plays "Terrible Love" on Friday...

As for the history of the roots genre, Learning Through Art Founder and Emmy award winner, Kathy Wade will produce an interactive program called, “Sounds of the River.”

The program will take people to the very beginning - the birth of roots music - and bring them back to the present.

Like music, food introduces people to a region’s culture as well.

Chef Paul Sturkey, a Kroger Product and Project Development Chef, will invite several celebrity chefs to present the “River Roots” cuisine at the upcoming event. Multiple local restaurants, vendors and food trucks will also be invited.

And what better way to wash down all of that food than with a nice Kentucky spirit? Amy Tobin & Co. will be in charge of referring emerging distillers for bourbon tastings at America’s River Roots next year.

“We talk about River Roots, I think the word ‘roots’ is so important because there are roots - we’re not just coming up with this because we have a great birthday to celebrate, but because we’ve had a longstanding history, here, of bringing people together and celebrating on the Ohio River,” Hamilton County Commission President Alecia Reese said.

Of course, it is not a River Roots celebration without boats. Here is the line-up of boats that will be featured next year on the Ohio River:

Boat Lineup 1

  • Belle of Cincinnati
  • River Queen (Cincinnati)
  • Belle of Louisville
  • Mary M. Miller (Louisville, KY)
  • General Jackson (Nashville, TN)
  • Julia Belle Swain (Nashville, TN)
  • Gateway Clipper (Pittsburgh, PA)
  • Riverboat Twilight (Le Claire, IA)

GF Default - The Belle of Cincinnati

Boat Lineup Two

  • Celebration Belle (Moline, IL)
  • Anson Northrup (St. Paul, MN)
  • Natchez (New Orleans, LA)
  • Colonel Paddlewheel Boat (Galveston, TX)

“This is the ideal location to celebrate America’s River Roots,” said Cincinnati Mayor Aftab Pureval. “River Roots has the potential to bring so many eyes and dollars to our community.”

The mayor added that Cincinnati is the city that will “define the future of our country.”

River Roots is expected to attract many from outside the Greater Cincinnati Area, bringing in tens of millions of dollars to several local economies.
