Went while visiting Disney. Great food, super service, good selection, and outstanding atmosphere. Pricey, but not more than expected given location, service and food. Everything about our meal and evening at the restaurant was great.

My friend and I had a girls night out and decided on The Boathouse. I don’t eat seafood and they had a good selection of non seafood items. Our server Corwyn was excellent and anticipated all our needs without being annoying, the service team was fantastic. My steak was excellent.. I have nothing bad to say about my dining experience. My husband runs a restaurant in DS so of course I compare service and everything else, needless to say that I was bragging about Boathouse to him, haha.
Thank you Corwyn and team for the fantastic service and experience!

Very good food. Our server was incredibly attentive and very knowledgeable about the menu. He made great recommendations. Only thing that could have been improved upon was the calimari. It was not a crispy ad it could have been.

We absolutely loved The Boathouse! I made a reservation here for dinner for my mom's birthday. They greeted us warmly and the host bought us both a drink upon arrival - he was great. Our waiter and all of the staff at The Boathouse was extremely accommodating, knowledgeable and kind. We ordered the 8oz filet mignon, a seasonal scallop dish, a side of asparagus, the turtle pie dessert (which is HUGE by the way), and two non-complimentary drinks and it was all under $150.. insane!! Highly, highly recommend eating here. Plus, it's in Disney Springs which is awesome.

My husband and had a reservation on a Saturday night and we were able to get the time we wanted and were seated promptly without a wait by a friendly, professional hostess. We were welcomed right away by Manny who introduced himself, brought us water and told us about the chefs choice menu. We we taking a Long time to decide and Manny made some recommendations. He brought bread and refilled it. Our food came after about 20 minutes. I got the Mahi with jambalaya, which was very good and seasoned well and came out piping hot. My husband got the crab cake and baked potato. He said it was the best baked potato he ever had. Being from Baltimore, it's hard to find a good crab cake in Florida, but they did a good job. It was out second time at The Boathouse, we are locals and for sure will return.

Fully enjoyed the dining experience. Reservations were easy, and the team was accommodating for us arriving a little bit early. All of the servers were very attentive, informative, and energetic. It was truly a wonderful experience and we would like to dine there again sometime in the future. It is not cheap, but it was worth it for a special occasion.

Favorite restaurant in Orlando. Always go when we visit from Jacksonville and worth the two hour drive!! Fabulous food, the service is over the top and spectacular view to boot! We have gotten to know some of the management and team as we have been going since they opened, and we always, always, always have a fabulous experience when we dine at the Boat House.

Great setting, fun nautical decor, and live music. Very busy. Server was fine but not particularly welcoming. Pasta and fish dinners were good. The fried clam dinner was not good. Seems as though the clams went missing! Mostly breading with a heap of french fries. Expensive for what was served.

Our first visit, we are both gluten free and dairy free. The chef came out to talk to us about our menu choices and we felt very comfortable trusting him with our meal (and our health!). Maria our waitress was amazing , friendly, helpful, efficient and basically a delight. Our crab stuffed lobsters were amazing!
