We have come to the Boathouse twice during our trips to Orlando/Disney Springs, and have received excellent food and outstanding service. The Ahi Tuna is not to be missed, amazing flavor!

As always, the Boathouse never disappoints. Our waitress was wonderful!! My party ordered 3 appetizers and it was more than enough food to share. Best place to get seafood!!

A very pleasant afternoon lunch with a worker and his family, the outside dining provides for a beautiful setting and makes conversation easy since it is not loud. The service was excellent and the food was too.

Was there with a party of five adults and four kids aged two to six. Food, service, ambience and location. Prices were what you would expect in Disney/Disney Springs but not outrageous.

We went for my son’sBirthday!Had a great time. The menu is varied and there is something for everyone.

The bread they bring to the table is amazing!!! Lobster bisque is some of the best we’ve had. We loved our server and she was amazingly efficient and personable.

The atmosphere is charming and we love looking at the vintage boats on display outside.

This was our first time at the Boathouse. We reserved a table for dinner and sat outside. Service was wonderful from the hostess to our exceptional waiter and the chef who prepared rolls for me without dairy products as I follow a vegan diet. The view was lovely outside and we enjoyed a terrific sunset over the water. My only complaint was that there was only hot vegan dish I could have which was very good; a pasta with vegetables with an oil and garlic sauce which was nicely seasoned filled with an assortment of vegetables. Prices were high typical of resort areas with everything served , without salads or soups with entrees. i did not see any vegan desserts on the menu, but I didn't try to ask for dessert. No almond milk or soy milk was available for my coffee. I would recommend more vegan options on the menu as more people are vegans today . I would also recommend complimentary small salads or cold vegetables or olives and nuts as table treats. Also a complimentary sample sized dessert which would be a nice extra as well as a future incentive to purchase it on the menu.

We have eaten here many times before and decided to try something new. The Maple Butternut Squash with kale, cranberries, and candied pecans was a nice seasonal side dish and paired well with the 75 day dry aged ribeye. The steak was cooked to perfection and was delicious. Not just a seafood house!

The boathouse was a nice restaurant with many options on the menu! The appetizers we got were great! We had the firecracker shrimp and calamari - both very good, but were definitely spicy. Service was good overall- everyone was very attentive.

Very good restaurant. Great service, lovely setting especially if you sit outside.
Steak was a little dry but they gave it to us for free so cannot complain.

The food was ok although i spent a lot of money and the waiter didnt offer a box to take it home. I still had a full plate of food and he just stacked dirty plates on top of it and took it before i could ask for a to go box. I also got soup i took 1 bite of and i was still going to pay but he noticed i didnt like it and he said he was going to take care of it for me and it was still on the bill. I spent over 100 dollars on two of us and i could have gone somewhere else much cheaper with better service.

Great setting, great menu choice and outstanding staff service. The feel of the restaurant is great, great sight views, great decorating, cloth table coverings and very attentive service. Had fish which appears to be their forte and it was very fresh and well prepared. Definitely a higher service and product than I expected from the location.

The item we ordered from the menu was unavailable, which was disappointing . Service was outstanding which was a highlight.

We are return customers, however , this particular visit was somewhat disappointing.
