The BOATHOUSE in Disney Springs Receives Two Orlando Magazine Readers’ Choice Awards


Orlando Magazine just shared this year’s recipients of their annual awards program and a number of Walt Disney World restaurants made the cut! Each year, Orlando Magazine awards local restaurants based on 20 picks from their food editor and readers’ choice awards in 44 additional categories. This year, The BOATHOUSE, located in Disney Springs, was awarded two Reader’s Choice Awards for both Best Outdoor Dining and Restaurant with the Best View.


If you have not yet tried The BOATHOUSE, you simply must make your way over to Disney Springs. Appropriately located right on the water, The BOATHOUSE offers sweeping water views plus looks at Disney’s Saratoga Springs Resort & Spa and other areas of Disney Springs.

For outdoor dining, classic restaurant tables are available as well as the Dockside Bar, a popular spot to stop for some of the restaurant’s specialty cocktails, cold beers and appetizers and small plates from the main menu or the raw bar while wandering through Disney Springs.

Boathouse Oysters

Many of the outdoor dining areas at The BOATHOUSE also offer views of the restaurant’s Amphicars and private boat collection. The Amphicar launch is nearby select seating areas, too, offering Guests a fun closeup view of these unique vehicles as they travel and and out of the water.

As you may have guessed, The BOATHOUSE is a fan-favorite Disney Springs restaurant for their seafood offerings, with fresh lobsters, Duxbury oysters, Sea of Cortez shrimp, and more. The restaurant is also home to a full menu of delicious eats even for Guests who are not interested in seafood though, with their burgers and filet mignon sliders, plus their tasty truffle fries also making up some of the most popular menu items.


Reservations are strongly encouraged for dining at The BOATHOUSE (and really for any restaurant at the Walt Disney World Resort) so we recommend planning ahead on your next visit and taking in some of the outdoor dining and views that Orlando Magazine recognized The BOATHOUSE for during your next Disney trip!
