While in Pittsburgh recently we had the chance to kick back and enjoy date night aboard the Gateway Clipper Fleet. The Captain’s Dinner includes a delicious buffet, music, dancing, amazing views of the city, and a little history.
Once we boarded and found our seats we were told to visit the buffet line and grab food. To my surprise the chef did a wonderful job the food options were well prepared and full of flavor.
Here’s the menu and it has quite a few items to choose from:
Garlic & Cracked Pepper Rubbed Strip Loin of Beef
with Rich Merlot Demi Glaze
Parmesan Encrusted Chicken Breast with Sun-dried Tomato,
Basil & Lemon Sauce
Mashed New Potatoes with Sharp Cheddar Cheese
Vegetable Paella Rice Pilaf
Honey Glazed Baby Carrots with Brown Sugar & Pecans
Garden Green Beans with Tomatoes and Smokey Bacon
Garden Fresh Salad Greens and Accoutrements with Buttermilk Ranch and Italian Vinaigrette Dressings
Bakery Fresh Dinner Rolls and Creamery Butter
Dark Chocolate Molten Volcano Cake
Refreshing Lemon Roulade
Freshly Brewed Coffee and Hot Tea Service
We enjoyed the refreshing lemonade and later ordered a cocktail from one of the full service bars. Which also featured various brands of liquor, beer, wine and soda and are located on both decks of vessel. The DJ had the tunes spinning you could hear them through out the ship as we explored deck by deck. We didn’t hit the dance floor much I was too eager to see the sunset. The top deck is where you could catch some the best views of the cities skyline, sports stadiums, casinos, and much more.
