The view was unbelievable. However we were extremely dissatisfied with the food. The flounder was overcook and my steak was undercook. Would not go back outside of happy for cocktails. Disappointing as we were recommended to go here !

Hosted a dinner here before a good friends wedding. Everything was on-point. The food was delicious. The service outstanding and can’t beat the patio on a sunny evening. Loved the experience here and would recommend it in a heart beat.

The restaurant was extremely crowded and a bit loud, which can be expected for most restaurants in Disney. We were still able to talk even with the noise, so it wasn’t too distracting but if you are looking for a quiet place to eat, you might want to look elsewhere or go on another day than Saturday.

There was five of us in our group and everyone found there meal to be decent, but there was nothing that anyone would say was particularly great. It was very average for a lack of better word, which was a bit disappointing considering the restaurant is on the more expensive side.

On the plus side the service was great, the servers were attentive and did a great job of keeping everyone’s drinks full and checking to see if we needed anything. When the food came out it was warm and cooked appropriately, nothing was dried out or over/under cooked.

Everything about the Boathouse was awesome! The oysters, the lobster cocktail and the fresh fish were so scrumptious....just wish I could have eaten more! Beautiful setting and friendly attentive service. We requested a table by the water and we got it! We will be back!

This was our 1st time eating at The Boathouse and we were not disappointed. Our waitress was so friendly and did a great job answering our questions (about food options) and made sure we didn't go thirsty. One of the people in our party has a severe gluten allergy and this restaurant had many options for her and she said her meal was amazing. We were all very pleased with the food we ordered and the portion sizes. We sat outside by the water and the atmosphere was so nice. We will definitely go back!!

Everyone had a different meal and they were all beautiful. I am gluten free. Our waiter brought the head chef came to the table to go over his menu and he also suggested his homemade gluten free brownie. I had a great meal and the allergy order was handled very well. Our only negative we experienced was the front of house staff initially tried to seat us at a high top table. My dad was in a wheelchair, which was noted when I checked in, so that was kind of ridiculous, but it was quickly rectified.

We ordered the ribeye and the crab stuffed lobster. Both were excellent. Sat outside on the patio/dock and were able to watch a few fireworks shows in the distance from the nearby theme parks. Great to go at / after sunset. Good wine selection also.

Food was great. Service was great. My fiancé and I were discussing, that if you were going out with a couple kids this isn’t the place for you. Unless of course you enjoy $350 dinner bills. For a nice night out for two this is and was well worth the $150 we spent both nights.

The food was great but we did wait a long time for it to come out. Great service! The server actually cracked my entire lobster so I didn't have to. Great overall experience.

We were sat outside and the ambiance was nice out on the dock watching the sunset. However that’s all that was nice from that point on.
Our server seemed very sarcastic and we were being light hearted and trying to have fun but he was not interested. I ordered a drink and was never asked if I’d like another or more water.
My ahi tuna I ordered was a horrible cut that had so much connective tissue I couldn’t cut it with a knife to eat it!
On top of this we had s girls night the three of us so yes it was separate checks, but the server gave us back the wrong checks and cards, charged the cards incorrectly and it was a huge mess! Also one of us ordered a side to go and he argued with her that it had already come out! Unreal.
I know this place gets a lot of vacationers but we are local here and come to Disney springs many times a week. This will not be a choice again by my family or friends!

It was so nice to eat on the dock of the boathouse at dusk and watch the sun go down. Really beautiful spot. The food and drinks were great, but your paying Disney prices. I was a little disappointed in the lobster bisque which contained no lobster. I asked about this and apparently theirs doesn’t have lobster in it? Which I thought strange as I’ve eaten it many times other places and it’s always contained lobster. Overall a lovely place though.

Went here for my husbands 35th, we’ve never been and I know it’s a Disney staple so we were excited to try it. We were seated in the back of the restaurant which was really hot! Felt like the air conditioning wasn’t on! Delicious rolls to start, an okay but small sized wedge salad, tasty porterhouse for two and a super cute grilled cheese with fries for our daughter which came in a cardboard little car she loved that. Overall service was a little slow but the place was packed! Definitely a go to spot but I wasn’t impressed. You didn’t even know you were on the water because the shades were pulled down because of the sunshining In so strong. I wrote a note and his birthday wasn’t even acknowledged.

Went to the boathouse during our Disney vacation. Enjoyed sitting outside, although the west setting sun was pretty much right in our face. A little uncomfortable until the sun went down. The food was good. Disney prices, but that comes with the location. We'd go back again given the opportunity.

With fish as their specialty I would have expected better. Halibut special was way over cooked and dry. You don’t except to have to cut your fish with a knife but I needed to. Very disappointing.
