Great food, great service! The prices are fair for where the restaurant is located, and that it's a seafood restaurant.

What a fun restaurant. Ambiance is great - right by the water. We ate outside and the umbrella at our table kept us dry during the brief rain showers. The rolls with honey butter are incredible. We enjoyed the coconut fried shrimp and a cheeseburger. Both cooked perfectly. Service was super friendly and kept our iced tea glasses full

Had lunch at the Boathouse this past weekend and it was, as always, amazing. We are from Mass and always get oysters, and they haven't disappointed yet. We love to sit outside and enjoy the day while taking our time to enjoy the food. We never feel rushed and we haven't had a bad experience. It's fun to try new places each trip, but at the Boathouse we could be sitting in a small local restaurant on the Cape which is nice.....

We visited the Boathouse while vacationing from Chicago and we absolutely loved it! The service was outstanding and the food was amazing. We loved it so much we came back twice in one week and plan to eat there every time I'm in Orlando.

We always enjoy the food and atmosphere at The Boathouse and this visit was no exception. However this time was made even better by the amazing service from our server, Kim. She was knowledgeable, engaging, friendly, informative….just an outstanding server. The Boathouse is lucky to have Kim on their staff.

We had dinner at the Boathouse on out last night of our Disney Vacation. Had it been sooner I am sure we would have had a few more dinners here. The food, drinks, and service were excellent. The chopped salad was huge! The Grouper and clam strips were very fresh! The only negative aspect i can say is the noise level was high in the main dining area. Other than that we will most definitely be back the next time we are in Disney.

Overall the experience was great. Food tasted great. The oysters were a little on the small side and the peel-n-eat shrimp was slightly over-cooked (hard to peel). The Tuna poke was great as was the Lobster Roll.

The Boathouse is a nice restaurant, it is always busy. The servers don't care if you are there or not-beacuse if it's not you - it's someone else.

Great service, food was tasty. There was live music during brunch that we didn’t find very enjoyable. No clue if they are regulars or what but we weren’t fans and were seated quite close making it hard to have conversation. We didn’t ask to move though so that is on us. Still, we always stop at the boathouse for lunch on every Disney trip!

I have a dairy allergy and they are one of the best restaurants I have ever been to in regards to catering to making sure everything was ok. Amazing food, service and atmosphere. If there is no room inside I would recommend trying to sit at the bar on the dock. they serve all the food out there as well and you can enjoy the water while you have a drink and eat. I HIGHLY recommend this restaurant, you wont be disappointed.

Great food, atmosphere and service! A definite must do when visiting Orlando. We were a party of 8 but could only book 2 tables of 4. When we arrived, the staff happily put together a table of 8 so we could all sit together! We were very pleased with such great service and kindness.

We had a great meal at the boathouse. The service and food was excellent!! Our server, Rai, was wonderful. Also, the hostess was very accommodating, and changed our table because of an immunocompromised family member that needed to be away from the crowds. We got a nice secluded table. Thanks again boathouse for an amazing lunch experience! Also their oysters are so good; make sure you try their lucky dux!

We were fortunate enough to be able to eat out on the porch of the restaurant. Service was amazing; our apps and meals came out quickly and were delicious. Pricing was on par with an upscale restaurant. We will be back next time at Disney.

We are locals and this is our go-to restaurant in the Disney resort area. The food quality is excellent and service is consistently above average to excellent each time we visit. My absolute favorite dish is the coconut shrimp.
