I wasn’t really thrilled with the fact that there was no social distancing with the tables inside this restaurant. But that being said I love the boathouse I loved my mail although they didn’t have my favorite appetizer carpaccio. Our server was Hilarious. He made our night

The Sunday before the school year started, so we wanted to have a really nice dinner out as we didn’t do much this summer like most people with COVID.

We felt safe from the moment we drove up to Disney Springs, mask requirements, temperature checks and a very empty Disney Springs so it was easy to socially distance.

The restaurant sat us right away with tables 6’ apart and we were greeted with a very friendly server who brought water a bread to the table. He offered specials, took our drink order and let us look over the menu.

He was very attentive without being overbearing. Other staff removed dishes that were done with quickly from appetizers, and the food came hot, fresh, and tasty!

It was really a great experience! We’d definitely go back as a trusted place that we felt was clean, respecting guidelines, and great food!

Always a delicious meal. Amazing selection of raw cold water oysters to choose from (I try different ones when available) I appreciate the full service & menu when most In the area have cut the menu in half. Made everything feel normal during this abnormal time.

We have been to the Boathouse many times. It was very good, but noticed that the food portions were a bit smaller for the fish I ordered than last time I was there. The potato that came with it was overcooked. My husband's ribeye steak was amazing and cooked to perfection. The dessert menu was minimal and it was good, but not amazing like it was last December. Hope things aren't changing with COVID-19. The restaurant was full and there were people waiting to get in, but it was a Saturday night.

Well at first they lost our reservation. Then they sat the wrong party at our table and tried to get us to sit on the patio when it was raining. They soon found us a table inside and comped us dessert or appetizers. The food was great and the server was amazing. She definitely made the experience better. Although i felt that there was ALOT more people in that restaurant then their should’ve been due to the virus. I still felt very close to the tables. The desserts were great- recommend the banana creams brûlée and the strawberry shortcake. The chopped salad was amazing as well.

We asked for a specific room and they made that happen no problem! We were seated at our reservation time, and had one of the best meals we’ve ever had on Disney property (and we live in Tampa, so we’re there multiple times every year for 27+ years). BUT THE BEST PART was our server, Sean, and his helper for the evening. Sean gave us better service that Bern’s Steak House in Tampa, which is literally a world-famous restaurant. Sean was simply incredible in every way, and I cannot praise him enough! And of course, the food is top quality seafood — the best shrimp cocktail from the raw bar and the best crab cake in the world!

I would have given it 5 stars across the board, but our food took especially long to come out. We got our appetizers in just minutes, but then it took another 55 minutes for our meals AFTER we received the appetizers. We were not offered any type of compensation for our wait such as the free extra bread (nor did we ask). We were seated at 8:20pm and weren’t able to pay until 10:15pm, and we did not linger over our meals. Our server was sweet but not overly attentive, and it took her a long time to notice that tables sat after us (who ordered after us) were leaving before we even had food.

We had an amazing meal from start to finish. Our waitress went above and beyond to make my birthday celebration special. I had the lobster roll which was fabulous, husband had the grilled mahi sandwich, and daughter ordered children’s fried shrimp which was plenty of food for a great value. Our waitress brought me a yummy birthday cupcake For dessert. We can’t wait to go back in our next vacation.

We are frequent diners, but this was our first time back since the pandemic began. They didn’t miss a beat. Service was excellent, food was excellent and aside from it being a little scarce because of social distancing requirements, the atmosphere was still wonderful. Thanks for making our son’s 16th birthday magical! We will be back!
