Our food was great. A few itches with the service, but they got it right and we enjoyed our meal. I appreciated that after being seated outside, the wind picked up and we asked to change to inside. They were most gracious.

The food was amazing, the service wasn’t as good as we would have expected for a high end restaurant but I think our server might have been new or inexperienced. The oysters were great, the fish tacos could improve with a bit more flavor.
Overall we had a great time

We always done at boathouse when staying at Saratoga springs or when we are in Disney. The food and service remaining great. But the popularity is causing issues trying to get a reservation. We booked 8 weeks out and could only get a Thursday night at 930 pm. We arrived at 830 pm hoping for an earlier seating and was seated by 845 pm. But you never guarantee that every time.

Our server was super professional and nice. It was a little loud but that is to be expected for such a busy place!

Dined at The Boathouse January 12. It was my second time at this restaurant and will not be the last. The service was excellent, food was fabulous. The atmosphere at the Boathouse is the best in Disney Springs.

Have eaten at the Boathouse several times in the past and it was excellent.
Went there for our anniversary dinner and we were seated by the walkway path. Rolls were brought out and they are normally excellent but today rolls were hard and only ok in flavor. Salad was tasteless. Neither of us could finish it. Waiter did ask and we did not complain. Main meal was good. Would normally recommend but not after this visit. Value for the price was poor.

Service was excellent! They sat us without a fever action ans our waiter was wonderful! The food was terrible. The kids meals were very good. But the peel and eat shrimp and fish tacos were very mediocre and tasted like we were at Applebee’s. Won’t be back.
Again the service, waiter and hostess were wonderful. Just disappointed with the food.

This was the first time my wife and I have dined at this restaurant. We were greeted at the door and shown to our table outside as requested and our server brought us water and bread with a sweet glaze on it that was amazing. My wife got the Mahi Mahi sandwich that was so big that she had to give me 1 of the 2 large pieces of fish that was on it. She upgraded to the truffle fries and they were amazing and there wasn't a morsel left. I got the crab cakes benedict and they were so full of flavor not only from the crab but the sauce that was on the egg that was perfectly done. Our server was very attentive and took care of every one of our needs from start to finish. I give him a A+++ all around. The atmosphere was amazing siting on the water and watching the boat/cars go by along with all the wildlife in the area. I feel that this restaurant hit all the boxes out of the ball park. We will be back again real soon.

This is our favorite restaurant at Walt Disney World and it was as good as always yesterday. We dined outside. The only negative was that I mentioned the birthday in the notes and usually they will add something to the dessert we order (a “happy birthday”).
