Review: The Boathouse at Disney Springs

On my family's vacation to Disney World last week, we went to Disney Springs for the first time. If you haven't been to Disney in a while, you might know it as Downtown Disney; it's a beautiful area with shops and restaurants. 

Since we took Thursday off from the parks to recuperate a little, we headed to Disney Springs with the help of my cousin Marisa who lives in Orlando. She recommended The Boathouse for lunch, a cute boating themed restaurant that boasts incredible seafood and a wide selection of drinks. 

We couldn't have been more pleased with our delicious food or the calming relaxed atmosphere, a big change from being in the parks! Everyone at the table (well, except my little sister) ordered a beer from the Funky Buddha brewery which is local to Florida. The waiter described The Floridian as similar to a Blue Moon, my favorite, and I absolutely loved it.

My mom and I both started with the Maine Lobster Bisque which was amazing. I could have done with a bit more actual lobster in it, but I feel like I can't complain because the flavor was so incredible.

For my meal, I ordered one of the specials: a Shrimp Po-Boy. My only complaint is that I have no idea how they intended for me to eat this sandwich. It was served on an incredible, but thick, baguette with fresh tomato and lettuce. I ended up eating off a lot of the shrimp before attempting to pick it up (well, after my first failed try).

I got truffle fries as my side but my sister ordered one of the "Sides to Share" to go along with her soup as her meal. They're not kidding when they say you can share the sides! She basically received a mountain of delicious truffle fries.

The Boathouse is definitely a restaurant I'll return to on our next trip to Disney. It's a bit on the pricey side, but no worse than your average upscale seafood restaurant. If you go, definitely try one of their beers and the truffle fries! x
