We often pick The Boathouse for anything special and just for a great meal. Last visit was for my Wife's birthday and we had an outdoor table. As usual great service and food and any special requests for the meals were provided. The staff were all wearing masks and minimized close contact while still be very attentive. My wife got a piece of cake with a candle and she was very pleased with her birthday dinner. Highly recommend The Boathouse, great service, food and drinks. Location on the lake makes it a special place. Not inexpensive but cost us very reasonable for the fine experience.

We loved the atmosphere. The outside bar and deck was nice, the service was fantastic and the food was delicious. We had drinks and an appetizer outside at the bar before dinner, the service was great out there as well as inside.

We always have dinner at the Boathouse on our first night at Disney. It's a fun place and the food is good. Never disappoints. Our server this time was Rebecca and she was fun and very accommodating.

The Boathouse was great! Oysters were really good and fresh, Filet Mignon was crispy outside and cooked to temp inside, Martinis were great! The Amazing Burger was so good. Almost better than the Filet.

They can do Oysters Rockafeller if you request.

It is a bit pricey, so be prepared to spend $60-$75 per person, after tips & tax.

We'll likely be here again during our trip.

This was a birthday celebration. Had to have some of my family at a table nearby as the pandemic didn't permit us to all sit together. Waiters were very conscience of our dilemma and served us all together so we were able to eat and celebrate all at the same time. Good job by all involved! Thank you Boat House.

Excellent Dining Experience with great staff and atmosphere! We came to the Boathouse for my sister's 50th birthday celebration. I drove up from Ft Lauderdale and she drove down from Jacksonville... Disney Springs is about halfway.

My husband went over to the Boathouse earlier in the day to watch the World Series and have a beer. Jaime and Sam were on staff at the bar and provided great service, making my hubs feel right at home, talking about softball and common interests (like a local bar).

My husband then met the Manager, Tony, who ensured he would do whatever he could to get us a table on the patio, waterfront, away from the rest of the dining room, as I am overly cautious from covid (that this was my first sit-down restaurant experience in almost 8 months). Tony arranged for us to have a table in a secluded area of the outdoor deck where our family could sit together.

Our server was amazing (I feel terrible that I don't recall his name, but he was a young man, 20's, tall and slim)... He was friendly, prompt, knowledgeable of the menu, and inobtrusive... The staff really made sure we were taken care of and ensure we were having a good time.

Everyone in our families enjoyed their drinks and meals... Our food ranged from the wedge salad; oysters, poke bowls; Mahi tacos, shrimp mac NY strip steak, cedar plank salmon... and for dessert, the giant chocolate birthday cake was INSANE! It could easily feed 4-6 people (although on the menu it says cake for 2).

Thank you to the entire staff at the Boathouse for making this a memorable dining event for us all!! We will be back for sure.

Matt was our server and he was great! Very attentive so were the server assistants. Food was delicious. Pricing was on the high side, but they are in Disney Springs...
We celebrated our daughter's birthday with the family and it was a nice surprise to have dessert brought to her!

The Boathouse team was extremely accommodating. Our party size doubled between when the reservation was made and when we arrived at the restaurant. They made arrangements for us to have a larger table and honored our request for one which was outside. Food, drinks and service were all excellent.

Normally I’d give it 5 stars. Our server did his best but was over taxed. 2 of our 3 meals were excellent. My moms lobster was way overcooked and chewy. We’ve gotten that exact meal before and it’s been perfect, just a bad cook this time. I will go back, this was just a hiccup. With it getting busier at Disney Springs now, hopefully they bring back more staff.
