Well at first they lost our reservation. Then they sat the wrong party at our table and tried to get us to sit on the patio when it was raining. They soon found us a table inside and comped us dessert or appetizers. The food was great and the server was amazing. She definitely made the experience better. Although i felt that there was ALOT more people in that restaurant then their should’ve been due to the virus. I still felt very close to the tables. The desserts were great- recommend the banana creams brûlée and the strawberry shortcake. The chopped salad was amazing as well.

Despite some items forgotten the server was so nice and lovely and the manager made up for it with a cake the dice of the table! Food was on point and the oysters were my husband’s favorite!

Amazing food and service, dining rooms can become a tad noisy with the frequented clientele being families. We will be back, highly recommended.

We asked for a specific room and they made that happen no problem! We were seated at our reservation time, and had one of the best meals we’ve ever had on Disney property (and we live in Tampa, so we’re there multiple times every year for 27+ years). BUT THE BEST PART was our server, Sean, and his helper for the evening. Sean gave us better service that Bern’s Steak House in Tampa, which is literally a world-famous restaurant. Sean was simply incredible in every way, and I cannot praise him enough! And of course, the food is top quality seafood — the best shrimp cocktail from the raw bar and the best crab cake in the world!

Food was excellent, our server Veronica was outstanding! We ordered the “Gibson Award” burger, the calamari and the Shrimp
Boil. All were excellent and plenty of food for 3 to share. The Boathouse does not dissapoint.

Had a wonderful time! Being celiac (gluten) it can be very stressful dining out but they were very accommodating. I was able to enjoy a crab cake for the first time in years.

I would have given it 5 stars across the board, but our food took especially long to come out. We got our appetizers in just minutes, but then it took another 55 minutes for our meals AFTER we received the appetizers. We were not offered any type of compensation for our wait such as the free extra bread (nor did we ask). We were seated at 8:20pm and weren’t able to pay until 10:15pm, and we did not linger over our meals. Our server was sweet but not overly attentive, and it took her a long time to notice that tables sat after us (who ordered after us) were leaving before we even had food.

We had an amazing meal from start to finish. Our waitress went above and beyond to make my birthday celebration special. I had the lobster roll which was fabulous, husband had the grilled mahi sandwich, and daughter ordered children’s fried shrimp which was plenty of food for a great value. Our waitress brought me a yummy birthday cupcake For dessert. We can’t wait to go back in our next vacation.

We are frequent diners, but this was our first time back since the pandemic began. They didn’t miss a beat. Service was excellent, food was excellent and aside from it being a little scarce because of social distancing requirements, the atmosphere was still wonderful. Thanks for making our son’s 16th birthday magical! We will be back!

My husband and I hate fish and sea food but we go to the boat house for their delicious steak filet sliders. Due to COVID we prefer to eat outside. The view was nice and our waiter was great! There were only two issues, one-fans, please invest in them. The portable ones didn’t really cut it. This next one they didn’t really have control over, however the hostess should have paid attention to who she was sitting, two middle age people w/o kids with them pretty much means they don’t want to sit next to two screaming ill behaved children.
