Located in the heart of the French Quarter near Jackson Square, below the Steamboat NATCHEZ.

Meet outside the Lighthouse Ticket Office before boarding the newest vessel to the French Quarter riverfront, the Riverboat CITY OF NEW ORLEANS. Revel in classic elegance with a modern twist on an historic paddle wheeler, where New Orleans jazz is your soundtrack and traditional Louisiana cuisine is your main course.

Listen to the Captain’s tales of those who have sailed the Mississippi before you, as you wind the infamous curve that gave the Crescent City its nickname. From the decks, view sites such as the battlegrounds of the historic Battle of New Orleans all the while barges and other vessels navigate the fourth largest river in the world, in seventh largest port in the country.

Make your way into our elegant dining room to be seated at your reserved table. Order a Mardi Gras themed cocktail to get you into the spirit of a festive evening that is just beginning. Indulge your taste buds on Louisiana classics, such as traditional New Orleans gumbo, from our buffet.
