Overall a good experience. Great food and service. Noise level was loud and tough to have a conversation without shouting.

Table not optimal given our party of 5 was seated at 2 round tables next to the bar.

Decided to have my husband bday dinner here, have eaten here before, but unfortunately it was disappointing. To my surprise, it was dirty and extremely loud. Never had issues before. Wanted a nice bday celebration and was very unhappy with how dirty the floors were. We had smashed food on the floor all under our table and this just wasn’t special for our celebration
It was beyond LOUD :( disappointed

We had a very nice dinner and the waiters were very attentive. When I made the reservations, I did say it was our anniversary which was not acknowledged. Usually when you say it’s a special occasion, it is noted with a surprise dessert. It was our 40th wedding anniversary. Just was a little disappointed nothing was said.

Ordered a $50 dollar filet and it was over cooked and had no flavor. I don’t mind paying a premium but I expect to get what I paid for.

Had to wait a few minutes for our 7:15 reservation, very busy, bustling and loud. Greeted immediately by our server, drinks ordered and delivered fast. Lemon drop martini was excellent with a Rock candy garnish. I had carpaccio to start it was very good, would have liked the crostini to be crisper. My husband had the chips and salsa, right up his alley. I had the ahi tuna entree, tuna was so fresh melted in my mouth, sauces very spicy but good. Turkey club was good too with Avocado and cucumbers.
Service was excellent, wanted to wait and order our entrees after our apps came, and it was no problem. Overall great experience

LOVE The Boathouse. We'd eaten here for dinner before, but this was our first time there for brunch (served Saturday and Sunday mornings). We asked to sit outside (at a table in the shade, since it was 90+ degrees out), and it was so nice to be able to soak in the atmosphere. The brunch menu was AMAZING. Ordered the chicken biscuits and gravy, as well as a side of their breakfast potatoes. Both were huge portions, and so so so delicious. Those potatoes are something I'll remember for the rest of my life. I also ordered the pearmosa, which was a yummy brunch beverage, AND only $6 (where on Disney property can you get alcohol for $6?? Nowhere.) The creole gravy on the biscuits and gravy should be available everywhere and on everything. We got there around 10am, and at 11am, they have live pianists taking requests. I was happy that they pumped the live music in outside, too (not sure how loud it was inside, but it was a good volume inside.

Service was outstanding. My wife has a gluten issue, the server and expediter were extremely helpful in suggesting her options. We have a reunion at the Boathouse twice a year with my brother and his wife. We come back to the same place because of how we are treated. And the food is great also. Keep up the good work.

I was so impressed the first time I came here. The food was amazing and I literally dreamed of the lobster roll after. When I came a second time a couple months later (I travel a lot for work) it was not the same experience. The lobster roll had pieces of shell in it and was very disappointing. A server turned on the fan beside me full blast which was obviously blowing everything around on my table. Was definitely disappointed second time. Would probably not go back.
