Nic our server was excellent. Social distancing inside wasn’t really being observed through the restaurant. Outside seating would be best if you’re concerned about contagion. Food was 4 out of 5.

We had an excellent meal and we were pleasantly surprised at what a great value it was. Our final bill wasn’t terribly bad and we had a ton of food, drinks, & dessert. Wonderful and prompt service, will definitely be back.

The Irish Rock oysters were great. The steaks were perfectly cooked. Above all, the staff were very attentive, accommodating, professional, and kind. We will definitely be back as often as we are in the area.

Everything was just ok, not terrible but not great. Wouldn’t go out of my way to get it and there are much better restaurants to go to for the same price. Felt overpriced for what we received.

If you are over 21, get the Duck Duck Razz, it's great. The staff was nice, the place was clean, a little pricey, but that is expected at Disney.

Absolutely spectacular! The service was amazing, the bread rolls with honey butter is something you’ll dream about and the wedge salad is the best I’ve ever had! But the filet mignon was fantastic! One of my favorite places to dine in Orlando

Second visit since Disney Springs has reopened. Food was excellent, waiter went above and beyond to meet our needs. Not a dirty plate left on table for more then 2 minutes before it was removed. I saw staff cleaning tables and chairs immediately upon patrons finishing their meals and leaving the restaurant. All employees were wearing masks and the proper distancing of tables through out the restaurant seemed to be appropriate per guidelines. Was a very nice dinner ( love the Truffle fries) felt safe, will be back.

Great experience, have dined there before. Only complaint is a party of ladies taking pictures in the middle of the restaurant while people are eating and right next to chicken with their dress so short their butts were hanging out and one lady pretending to smack the butt of the other lady in more than one picture while staff allowed this to occur while watching. Another table of people across from us were so disgusted the mom took the young child outside until these ladies left the restaurant. We were disgusted as well, this is not appropriate restaurant behavior, and especially on disney property.

As usual the food and service were excellent. I was a little surprised the inside of the restaurant was so full, under these conditions. The outside seating area was great, nicely spread out for social distance.

Several items were not available due to Covid we called the restaurant prior to make sure that there was no issues with it in there five times in the last five years they assured us that everything was the same we have no problems took a party of six there and the things that were used to getting we’re unavailable so not pleased with the way they informed people of the changes to the menu mention it to the radar and would’ve thought somebody would’ve come by to talk to us but nobody did even though our bill was over $600

Our waiter Pedro was fantastic. Being it was a mid week lunch there were not many people there so it wasn't too noisy and the staff could pay attention to you. The food was good, just a little too much sauce on my mahi sandwich but still good. I can't wait to go back to try the Raw Bar. The oysters I had were amazing.

Our service was outstanding. The complimentary rolls were delicious. I felt the portions were small for the price. If we go back, I will order something different to try a different flavor.

We come here quite often for special occasions. We celebrated my parents 50th anniversary here last October and we came back to celebrate our 14th. Always great service and excellent food! Our waiter took a bunch of pictures of us to mark the special occasion and he also brought us out a dessert! What a treat and sweet touch! We got the lobster mac n cheese and the lobster and crab cake for our entrees! OUTSTANDING !! We can never come here without getting the lobster mac. We get it everytime!

Also, the social distanced our tables 6 feet apart from others so we had privacy and safety. All the staff wore masks and I could tell they were diligent about sanitizing the tables and seats. The table have tablecloth so it was easy for them to remove and change per customer.

I highly recommend this place for great seafood, wonderful ambience, and great view of the water (if you ask for a window seat). I will definitely be coming here again and again!
