River City Star
Omaha's Riverfront Entertainment Venue
For over 10 years, Owens Educational Services has held it's annual "Diamonds in the Rough" fundraiser at the River City Star. We have come to truly appreciate our experience with Tami and the entire staff. From the meticulously kept property to the perfectly attentive customer service oriented crew - we know we will be back for many years to come! Our guests come from all over the state of Nebraska and always praise how wonderful their experience is, from the sunset cruise down the Missouri to the live bands under the big tent and all points in between! In our minds, the River City Star at Millers Landing is the best place to host our largest event of the year.

Whether it be for an intimate dinner on the river for our corporate executives, or a full day of family fun for our over 500 employees and their families, the River City Star has always made it a wonderful experience. The staff at the River City Star are the best in the business to work with. We would recommend them for any type of event!

For the past 4 years we have had an annual pilgrimage of South Africans traveling to Omaha to attend the Berkshire Hathaway AGM in May. For each of these years, we booked a trip on the River City Star. The team is super friendly and helpful and the food amazing! Never visit Omaha without having a River City Star Experience!

Dear River City Star Riverboat,
Thank you so much for letting us ride the Riverboat in May. We had tons of fun and learned more about Omaha! We got to see many places and things we have not seen before! Hopefully we can come back again. Thanks!
I just want to let you know how pleased we are on the great job you and your staff and crew did for our daughter's wedding. The food was delicious and everyone had such a great time! Thank you for providing us with such a fun facility!
I just wanted to let you know that everyone that attended our formal last Saturday had a blast! I had several people thank me personally, and a large part of that thanks goes to you and the staff at the River City Star. We truly appreciate all the work you did to accommodate us. Our exec. team was discussing this event yesterday and we may make this a yearly thing.
Thanks for everything,
Thank you so much for helping us put on such a wonderful event!! Everyone had an awesome time and it was great to make it out on the Riverboat. We will be back!

You are the "STARS"! Thank you for helping us have a wonderful wedding reception! Everything was perfect... and I mean everything! Guest's loved boat ride, the setting, the friendliness of the service, the watermelon drink, the food, the DJ, and the beautiful tent that was all decorated to the hilt. Your extra efforts paid off! And you especially made it special with your good cheer and commitment to having a great event!
Thank you... Madeline

I can't begin to thank you for all the hard work, love, sweat and perhaps a few tears in making Erin's wedding reception over the top! It was stupendous, fabulous and unforgetable. Everyone had nothing but the highest praise and compliments for the wonderful time at the River City Star. Thank you!
Dear River City Star;
Our experience was incredible. The staff was wonderful, they were personable, kind and made everyone feel relaxed. I must say, the entire experience from making the reservations, selection of food and then enjoying the boat ride was 100 percent perfect. The food was delicious, there was plenty for everyone and everyone who worked the event were great. I recommend the River City Star to many people and would love to have another event there. Thank you to everyone you all are the greatest people! Ps, this was my husbands’ retirement party and he had the time of his life!
