If you love seafood, the next time you’re at Disney Springs at Walt Disney World Resort you might want to make some time to enjoy a meal at The BOATHOUSE. My fellow DIStracted authors Jodi Kerr-Taylor and Christen Goff wrote fantastic pieces about the restaurant and their experiences there. You can read those articles here and here.
Since they did such a great job describing the restaurant and its amenities, I’m going to focus on the food. I’ll give you a hint: The BOATHOUSE is now my favorite restaurant at Disney Springs.
We arrived for our lunch Advanced Dining Reservation (ADR) a little early, but they had no problem seating us immediately. After we ordered our drinks, we had some time to peruse the menu. It was very difficult to choose from the many different selections. After we placed our order, our server brought some warm dinner rolls and butter. The rolls were soft, chewy, and a little sweet – just perfect.
Although we were hungry, we didn’t want to eat too much so we both chose a smaller entree. I had the Wild Caught Surf Clam Strips ($18), which came in a basket with fries. They were very fresh and incredibly delicious.
My mom chose to have the Coconut Baja Jumbo Shrimp ($21). There were four generous-sized shrimp, and she said they were “outstanding.” I have to confess that when she went to the restroom I stole a bite, and I have to agree with her assessment. Her basket also came with fries.
So much for not eating too much. Everything was so good we finished it all! We debated about ordering dessert, and we decided that we had to. For research purposes for this article. Yeah. That’s it. We’ll go with that.
I’m really not a huge dessert person. I usually try things when on vacation, but I don’t eat it regularly. I’m also very picky. But for the first time in a long time, I would have been happy with any of the choices on the dessert menu.
We decided to share the Key Lime Pie In A Mason Jar, which comes with Vanilla Bean Chantilly Cream ($9). Unfortunately, I am often disappointed when I order key lime pie. I am delighted to report that I was not at all disappointed with this dish. In fact, it was so good I put it on my list of top 5 key lime pies!
The next time you’re at Disney Springs, do yourself a favor and check out The BOATHOUSE. You won’t be disappointed.
DIStracted Tip: The BOATHOUSE accepts the Disney Dining Plan (DDP) and is considered a signature restaurant. Two dining credits per person, per meal are required. Be sure to tell your server if you are on the DDP.
