Service was excellent our server Soleil (I think and sorry for the mispelling) was attentive, courteous and personable couldn’t ask for more. The food however was just ok. I know it’s Disney but the restaurant wasn’t crazy busy. I ordered the clam bake. Dry lobster , dead clams , over cooked sausage and burnt corn, not sure what part of New England this was supposed to be from, add to that a tasteless broth and it was just an overwhelming disappointment .

Not sure I could recommend for the price point.

A beautiful setting for a lovely meal. The service was exceptional, the food was stunning and we even tried oysters for the first time due to the knowledge of where they are sourced from the best farms and are amazing. Even our kids tried them with no bother! It wasn’t the slimy salty yucky can’t swallow it, experience that I was dreading. The boathouse is a place to enjoy good food and servers that genuinely make you feel welcome.

Calamari was tasteless and cold. Fire cracker shrimp was cold. Fish & Chips was a skimpy portion.

A beautiful restaurant right on the water. We came just for dessert and drinks to celebrate my husband’s birthday and everything was delicious! I gave the service only 4 stars because I think our server was annoyed that we were just there for dessert. The chocolate cake that we ordered on the menu was big enough for two people to share but he didn’t tell us that so he would get a higher bill from us.

We were seated right away. The atmosphere is lovely but it is very loud and of course, a lot of children. They should remove the ship steering equipment because kids go by and constantly move it back and forth causing a terrible racket on top of the general din. Make it immobile at least so it can’t make more noise.

The hot rolls with honey butter were delicious. We received those right away. It took a very long time for food to come out. The waiter must have realized kitchen was backed up because she kept saying it’s coming soon.

Salad greens were warm and sort of wilted. Salmon over cooked. The scallops and polenta were delicious. Poke was ok but a bit chewy.

I’m hoping it was an off night. I’d like to return.

My friends from Minnesota just moved to Florida so we met here for lunch, half way between us. They were very impressed. I had been one time before so I knew it would be good. Thought the fish tacos were a little over priced for lunch but they were good. Everyone ordered different entrees and all said their food was goo. Will be back, even if it is a long drive.

Sent food back as it was lukewarm, in fact saw 2 others do the same. Very expensive for average food.
Poor table to say it was our anniversary, service was good, 5 star restaurant with people sitting in base ball caps and drinking beer from bottles, oh well I guess I am old fashioned.

What I wanted for desert, was. It on the menu and it was on the website. It was my birthday and the server did not do anything special. When I ordered the other desert I asked for a substitute and got billed for the substitute. First time I had a problem at this restaurant.

I can honestly say that I rarely leave reviews let alone 5 stars but the experience was amazing! From being sat at a table where we could have our stroller to the glass of water that was basically waiting for our toddler everything was above and beyond what I could have asked for! Everything we has was amazing and although we had one small mistake the server quickly made it right! We will be back during future trips.

We had a late night reservation due to a speaking engagement in the area. We arrived tired and hungry. The food was good (a little over priced, but good. The service was absolutely the best I have had in years! Our server Stephen was attentive and connected with us on a personal level like no server before. Steven is truly the jewel in their waitstaff crown. We will dine there every time we are in the Orlando area!

We reserved our spot ahead of time on the app, came in and waited only a couple minutes for the table to be ready. When we got there, Kim (who I assume is a manager because she was on top of EVERYTHING) came over to address an allergy I have. She let me know what was safe, what wasn't, and that they would do everything possible to ensure cross-contamination didn't happen.

For my gluten allergy, they had starter bread for me and I would say almost 85% of the menu could be catered to me. I would HIGHLY recommend going to the Boathouse if you want a nice dinner and to feel like you're family, not just a patron!

Kim, you are the bee's knees, we had such a pleasant experience because of you!!
