Experience the finest in American cuisine in any of the American Queen's four venues: the regal J.M. White Dining Room, the classic Front Porch Cafe overlooking the Mississippi, the River Grill & Bar and its relaxed atmosphere, and the ever popular Engine Room Bar.
Visit the Front Porch Cafe for its Early Riser Coffee or indulge yourself with a buffet breakfast at the J.M. White Dining Room, any time between 7.00 and 9.30 am. A selection of salads, breads, cereals, and hot dishes ensure that you never run out of choice.
If you missed it at breakfast, another sumptuous buffet is offered at lunch in the J.M. White Dining Room from 11.30 to 1.30. On the other hand, the buffet breakfast may have left you feeling full, in which case the Front Porch Cafe provides a number of wonderful light snacks and dishes in an Alfresco dining experience.
Dinner on the American Queen is a truly phenomenal experience, as you choose from a selection of traditional American meals. Enjoy a Fried Green Tomatoes with Corn and Crab starter, or a Crawfish and Tomato Bisque with roasted Creole tomatoes, Louisana crawfish tails and a Cognac finish - and that's only the start to the rich and wonderful tastes you'll experience.
