Every meal aboard the American Queen is an affair to remember. Regina Charboneau, our Culinary Director and celebrated American chef, draws her inspiration from our great Heartland has created a movable, delectable feast for you to indulge in. From piping hot beignets and bananas foster French toast for breakfast to succulent five-course dinners, every day celebrates the culinary senses.

Even more astounding than the choices you will find on our menus are your daily choices of dining venues. The opulent J.M. White Dining Saloon is the centerpiece, serving breakfasts, lunches and dinners that are befittingly grand. The Front Porch of America offers a wide variety of classic American favorites and can satisfy any craving, at any time, as it is open 24 hours. The Calliope Grill serves up views as spectacular as the grilled fare and fresh salads and offers romantic, alfresco dining in the evenings.
