Sat outside on the water. Beautiful night. Much quieter outside than in. Waiter, Tyler, was great, food was, as always, perfect.

Overall food was very good, I ordered Filet mingnon but was a little disappointed in the presentation it looked very bland and needed some garnishing to make it more appealing although cooked to perfection.

Quality food. Couple mishaps with the server (no ketchup for kids burger, forgot several meal requests) but the food was great. Burgers were some of the best and we are picky about burgers. Meat ground in-house. Sat on the patio in January and heat lamps made it perfectly comfortable and much quieter than inside.

I would like to thank Manager Scott, Chef Sincere, Waiters Rai, Paige, Jeremy and Wayne for an excellent quality served oysters, clams, crab cakes, lobster, grouper, burger with baked potato, vegetables and french fries. Everything was fresh, freshly prepared, made to order and nothing was already prepared or frozen. Excellent Management and Staffing yields excellent customer service. Thank you.

Did not realize the restaurant was in the Disney proper and that you park in one of the garages and then walk to where all of the restaurants are with all the people doing Disney World. If I was there, I would go again. If I am in Orlando there are other restaurants rather than fighting the crowds

The staff at The Boathouse was more than accommodating for my first solo night out with my toddler. They were helpful and very attentive. The restaurant was loud enough that she didn't bother anyone at an earlier (5:30pm) dinner. Prices are expensive, but it is Disney... My meal was delicious and my daughter loved the rolls that came out fresh.

We had to send all our food back. My steak was well done when I asked for medium rare, wife’s fish was over cooked one of my daughters had steamed clams and only about half we’re open and my other daughters crab cake was cold also her fries were cold. They recooked all of our food and still wasn’t really impressed with it considering the cost of the dinner. The service was good. The manager Sean was very nice and apologized multiple times. In my opinion, I think the place is too big and can’t handle all the tables they are trying to serve. There was also a family that was next to us celebrating their daughters 9th birthday and they also didn’t have a good experience. They waited a very long to get “so so” food. I will not go back to The Boathouse to eat or recommend this restaurant to anyone.

The fillet mignon sliders were great. The meat was tender and flavorful. It came with fries that had salt and pepper on top and portions were large. Service was exceptional and friendly. We ate outside by the water and there was a roof overhead to protect us from the sun. It would help on a rainy day as well. The pulled pork sandwich came with fries and was also excellent. This is a very nice restaurant and we’ll return.

Have eaten here several times before food was just not the same lobster bisque too spicy had to wait a long time for oysters to be served salad came out 1st before oysters only ordered 4 oyster the restaurant was so loud you could not have a conversation crabcake was good but for $25.00 for one crab cake that would be expected presentation of coleslaw just thrown on a plate, french fries like wilted lettuce and overly salted and pepper spice, filet mignon sliders not as good as in the past.we will try a different restaurant the next time we visit Disney Springs.

Waitstaff was good, however it was very busy and backed up. The place is very cool, with all of the vintage boats. The food was average. Not a tremendous amount of flavor, I'd equate to Houlihan's type fare, not fresh. Frozen Sysco food.

We sat outside, very nice. Much quieter than inside, would have been too noisy. Food was good, craft beer good although selection limited. Service was good, although she forgot 1 side dish. One person had the raw oysters, said they were good. I had the grouper special, also good. Since it was a special occasion, allowed us to bring in a cake. Also took the amphicar ride which was fun w captain Tom. Parking was a bit of a hassle. Had to valet, since I didn’t know the area.

Even though the place was packed, I made reservations and we got an outdoor seat with the most beautiful view of the sunset with no wait! The bus boy was awesome and the waitress always made sure we were taken care of. This was my first time coming here and I absolutely enjoyed with my man. I highly recommend this restaurant if your in the Disney springs area.

It's the second time my wife and I have dined at The Boathouse and both times our experience was outstanding. From the shrimp appetizer to our lobster and grouper meals the food was tasteful, delivered hot and, with a smile. Our waitress both times was very energetic and informative about the daily specials. Overall, we are going to dine there every time we're in Disney Springs. One thing to suggest is to make reservations a few days in advance because The Boathouse is an extremely busy location.
