Our family was so excited to eat here. We had a horrible experience. The King Crab was small and cold. The "butter" was even colder. The corn and crab chowder soup tasted like someone opened a can of cream corn. It was so disappointing for the hype and price. We will not be returning.

My husband and I arrived early for our reservation and we were seated on the upper deck with a lovely view of Saratoga Springs. We had last eaten here on our honeymoon in 1978 when the restaurant was called the Empress Lily. Our server was just "over-the-moon." He was patient while we reviewed the menu, explained things well without being... More

I remembered eating on this restaurant when I was a young teenager myself and once again this place did not disappoint. Now that I have a teenager at home myself it's good to see that top notch restaurants maintain their greatness over substantial periods of time. We will never go to Disney without stopping by Fultons... it is officially a... More

It's in Downtown Disney, so what should you expect for the price??? We did have an excellent waitress (very sorry to have forgotten her name). The decor & atmosphere was very nice and appropriate. All of our seafood was ok-nothing noteworthy or remarkable. You could find similar food at a thousand small, local, seafood shacks throughout Florida. With so many... More

I've been to Fulton's in the past and loved it. Not so much this time. Looking back the food has always been good, not amazing. Had the stone crabs. Not as sweet and it was so cracked I kept eating pieces of the shell. Crab ceviche was good and grouper as well. Flourless cake was good. I did like that... More

I was really excited to eat lunch here after reading the excellent reviews. The restaurant is lovely and our waiter, Josh, was stellar. My husband and I both ordered a half sandwich and soup. We both had Corn and Crab Chowder that was very good, and I had an oyster po' boy and he had a shrimp po' boy. Hubby... More

I have heard many great reports about this restaurant and possibly we just hit it on a bad night, but the food was awful. The Seafood Combo was made up of battered fish that looked as though it had been thrown onto a plate, the rack of ribs were extremely dry and not overly pleasant. Service was ok, not great,... More

Great Bloody Mary with plenty of spice and a shrimp garnish. Great calamari starter. And the King Crab legs are always superb. Great

There were 30 people at our table. 20 of which were 10 and 11 year old boys. We had 3 waiters and the place was very busy. Considering the crowd they did a great job. For all the food ordered, very few complaints. Our 11 year old ordered the Filet Mignon and stated it was too small and wanted another... More

We had a business meeting here and the ambience is great. Good views, great food, a place worth eating and trying some crab.
