Loved loved loved everything about this place! Best dining experience I’ve had during our stay in Orlando, Florida. Portion sizes were brilliant, food tasted amazing, the live music made a difference to the whole Boathouse experience. The S’mores dessert to share was well impressive and well worth it. Hats off to Carmen our waitress who provided service with a smile at all times!

Service was excellent, reservation was right on time, clam appetizer disappointing, salmon was good & presentation on the cedar plank was great, calamari that my guest had was excellent & the strawberry shortcake was a great fresh dessert.

We dine here every vacation to the Disney area. We are satisfied when going which is why we return. However, this experience was a tad different because there was an assistant waiter (Creamon, I believe) who was so attentive and a complete breath of fresh air because he wanted to please us. I just want to say it was very nice to be treated in such an accommodating manner. Thank you, Young Man.

Steaks were delicious.... Menu a little pricey for middle class (as all sides were separate any not included with meal) so, we got the dinners for 2 share which was plenty. The bread before dinner was amazing! Seated on time, but, we were there for almost 2 1/2 hours so you need to be allow for long dinner time. Downside, it was very noisy and hard to hear especially with someone with hearing issues.

Very pricey for the amount and variety you get. Our medium tuna was delicious and oysters were fresh, delicious, and not too big. Our friends (who are from Orlando) had the shrimp and sausage mac n cheese and pulled pork sandwich (which won a local prize for 2017).. They loved the mac but said the sandwich was not as good as anticipated. Overall, this was a great place to take the whole family. It was slightly busy but we were quickly with our open table reservation. I think the high cost is related to tourism but you definitely feel the staff's good, yet not over-the-top energy. We were all very happy but did not think the price was comparable for this local area, which has so many good food and experience options.

Food was just ok but a tad over priced. The bacon burger and pulled pork burgers, my kids didn’t enjoy at all. I paid $50 for a crab stuffed lobster that was unremarkable. Surprisingly the only standout item was the smoked chicken. That was nice.

This was our third visit to Boathouse and once again it did not disappoint. My wife had the Mahi and I had the “Award Winning” pulled pork. It was another pretty day so we sat outside on the deck. Another very enjoyable dining experience.

Outstanding time. The ambience was great, we sat outside and came just around sunset time. The waiter was fantastic, he was very helpful and nice. Pointed out excellent things on the menu and every suggestion he had was fantastic. The food was delicious! 100% recommend this place. Try the filet mignon!

This restaurant is a MUST-DO at Disney Springs! If you only have one night for dinner at Disney Springs then choose The Boathouse. Amazing service, spectacular food, and the ambiance whisks you away to a seaside resort! You will love it!!

The restaurant is located in Disney Springs A very popular area to visit. We arrived at the restaurant early and was checked in and escorted to our seats. Carmen our waitress was very attentive and told us about the specials for the day. She give us so time to over look the menu and came back to take our orders. The order was out in no time and taste delicious. All in all we had a great experience at the boat house and will stop in again when we are in the area. Carmen and the team did a great job thanks for making our day a special one.

My family loves this restaurant. The food and service are always great. We are locals who brave the Disney crowds to eat here. This is far from your average “theme park food”. Seafood and steaks are fresh and delicious. We highly recommend The Boathouse.

We were pleasantly surprised at the quality of food being a Disney mass market restaurant in essentially the tourist mall of Disney Springs. We had delicious, high quality steaks and sides. Server was efficient and professional. The only complaints I would have was that lighting was too bright on the deck to fully enjoy the view. We were on the more recessed portion rather than the outer portion that was more dimly lit. A candle on the table would have been nice. There was a huge portable a/c unit right next to us which blew directly on my husband....server tried to adjust it but that caused issues for other diners......it was super hot outside so while the unit was appreciated, sitting directly in front of it was not ideal.

It was just ok this time, we have gone 2-3 times per year since they opened and it seems to be on sliding to the comfortable side, menu could use a refresh and tables need to be spread out more the servers don't have space to move between tables with out bumping into guests.

My husband, 10-year-old son and I sat out on the deck. We had a whole section to ourselves and our waiter was fantastic! The jumbo crab cake was excellent as was the Ahi tuna. My son had a kids meal-the salmon was a bit small on portion size, but the lemon sorbet dessert made up for it! Would come back and highly recommend!

Boat house is one of our favoriate restaurant in Disney Springs mostly because of the tasty menu. I just love the crackling shrimp appetizer! Our visit this time was not as good as previous visit due to the service. We were rushed to order and were rushed to clear the table before I was even done my dinner. (We only had about 25mins to eat after the food was placed on our table). Our server left our bill on the table while I was still eating! Not the kind of service I’d expect from the boat house! Hopefully it’s just a one off...
