I was so disappointed the food was nothing spectacular it was not seasoned or even tasty the vegetables was room temperature the salmon was fresh but again very blend the Mac n cheese was basic the coconut shrimp wore average but I will say the lobster bisque was pretty good. The decor is dated but still a pretty nice space my sever was nice but when I told her I didn’t like the Mac n cheese I wasn’t given an option to switch. I was just disappointed as this was my first time to Disney spring and going to the boathouse so I was expecting something magical.

Our server JC brought us water and asked if we had scanned the QRS code to bring up the menu. The internet was downed and we asked for paper menus. He did forget to bring them. When he came back to take our order, we had to remind him we were waiting on the menu's. The drinks came out really fast. The grouper there was fantastic. The other person in our party had the boathouse cheeseburger. It came with fries, but she upgraded to the truffle fries. They were awesome. We had the strawberry shortcake for dessert. It was fantastic We always love have dinner here.

I ordered the Maine lobster tail and he ordered the crab cake. Both entrees were absolutely fabulous. My lobster and sides were seasoned and cooked to perfection. Our server was also very engaging and made us laugh a lot! I'm so glad I was able to get a reservation to such a busy place. We really had a fantastic evening!

Food was impeccable as always and the service was awesome. We sat on the covered patio and saw some turtles and fish and the wait staff even gave us some crackers to feed them. I highly recommend it as it’s my favorite restaurant in Disney Springs!

My party had the firecracker shrimp, oysters Rockefeller (not on the menu, but the chef will make them), wedge salad and the lump crab cake. It was so good!! Highly recommend.

The waiter was strange and somewhat inattentive. Un-Boathouse like. My husband and I ordered the exact same dish and they came to the table looking completely different. When we asked about it, another waiter fixed it by bringing out a side of the sauce which seemed to fix the problem. Our waiter came by later and asked, “Everything perfect?” When we said no and tried to explain the situation and how it was fixed, he started to take my plate away saying he’s have them re-make it. We had to stop him. Then he looked at us Wild-eyed like we were just nuts. Really, everything was fine except for our bizarre waiter and the Miss-matched “same” dishes. They both tasted great!
