We ate at the bar and had the best meal we had while in Disney. Everything was delicious (filet mignon sliders, truffle fries, calamari, crab cakes and salmon) and our server/bartender was on point!

Great food, service, and ambiance. Really enjoyed the atmosphere and the hospitality, topped off with high quality meals and deliciously fresh seafood. Great wine selection and martinis were excellent.

I had the coriander seared yellowfin tuna. It was cooked perfectly and the heat from the peppers and sriracha was phenomenal paired with a Stags Leap sauvignon blanc. I would have no problem stating this was the “Best tuna meal I ever ate”. We WILL be back!!!

Brunch was really amazing. The rolls were soft and the cinnamon butter that was drizzled on stayed on like firm icing like on some kinds of cinnamon rolls.

I opted for the avocado toast and a side of hash. For a drink I ordered the Duck Duck Razz.

Everything was great. The sing along piano was nice too.

My son and I sat outside on the covered patio and had a wonderful view. Our appetizer arrived before I received my glass of tea. Our water and bread arrived after the appetizer too. Great options on the kids menu. My shrimp boil was delicious and the portion was more than enough. The calamari is not worth $18. I will return but hope for better service.

We went to this restaurant to celebrate my niece’s birthday. The food was excellent and the service was great. We tried to make reservations for the next day but The Boathouse was booked. We will definitely make our reservations early next trip. Thanks for making us feel special.

We went to the Boathouse for my birthday dinner based on a recommendation from a friend. We arrived 15 minutes before our reservation and we’re seated at our reservation time despite it being very busy. Our appetizers were also great so things were off to a great start! We put our order in and after 45 minutes of waiting and seeing others around us, who were seated after us, get their meals before us we had to flag down a manager to get a status on our meal and get refills on our drinks which sat empty for a while. Once our food finally arrived (3 sandwiches) our food was so heavily covered in sauce we couldn’t even taste the meat - mahi in my case. Neither the waiter or the manager apologized for the delay nor offered any compensation. On top of that when we made the reservation we indicated it was for a birthday… they didn’t acknowledge the birthday or even offer dessert to us. Maybe it was an off day but at 4pm on a Sunday I wouldn’t expect this poor of service, especially of a “nice” restaurant.

Wife just had to go. Couldn't get a res on Saturday night. So we went Sunday. The location and building are just amazing. Disney worthy. The decor is close to epic. So is the service. It's a solid place. For a mass restaurant it does great things. Massive volume. And they handle it. It's not an amazing restaurant. But an amazing place.

First time having brunch here and it did not disappoint! Our server was great, the food was amazing as always, and we loved the fact that you not only had their brunch menu to choose from, but the full regular menu was available as well. The dueling pianos made it an even more fun experience!

It was our first time visiting the boathouse and it did not disappoint. We checked in early and were paged within 5 minutes of us checking in. Our waiter was extremely attentive and so nice. The food was great and the portions were large. Overall it was a great experience!

We went here for the excellent gluten free service because a member of our party has celiac disease. It lived up to the excellent GF reviews! A pleasant surprise for the rest of
us was how much we enjoyed our food in this crowded tourist venue. Delicious! Not a bad value for the location, either. Sit on the covered patio for a view of the lake and a bit more quiet.
