“Good place for dinner”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2012

Very nice place for a sit down dinner. It was easy to find something for everyone on the menu. Generally easy to get into with short lead time. Service is very good

“Good for a quick bite”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2012

When on the boardwalk at Disney, you can grab a quick bite here, and eat outside.

“Outstanding experience at WDW”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2008

We just came back from a 10 day trip that included 5 nights at WDW. We only ate at Disney restaurants (Le Cellier, San Angel, etc.). Spoodles was absolutely the dining highlight of the trip! We've eaten here 3 times over 5 years and it has gotten better each time! From the other reviews I've read here, I'm not sure everyone "gets" Mediterranean food (the flavors are very bold and its not for everybody). The atmosphere is definitely like a farmhouse - a big, loud farmhouse! Its noisy and hectic. If you can, try and get a table off to the side or near a front window; it makes a big difference. We ordered several appetizers (the garlic shrimp was amazing) and a pitcher of sangria to get started. The entrees were all great, too but the desserts just made the meal. The cheesecake was the best we've ever had (and we've had a lot of 'em); and the homemade gelato and lemon cake were amazing. The service, by our waiter Nabil, was excellent as well. Go in with an open mind and you will not go wrong!!

“High School Cafeteria Atmosphere”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2008

Having dined at the Flying Fish our first night, we thought we'd try Spoodles for the next night, assuming it was going to be equivalent.

The comparison was not even close. While Flying Fish is very busy restaurant, it provides a much more enjoyable experience, as compared to Spoodles which has all the atmosphere of a high school cafeteria, specifically the noise. Its just one giant barn like room with a ceiling that seems designed to amplify and direct back down all sound. I kid you not that a normal level of conversation at a two person table was impossible.

Additionally, our table, really should not have been a table. It was a table for two where my wifes chair was in the traffic pattern of all food coming out of the, I suppose you call it kitchen, and my chair was sticking out into the exit from the next booth over. It was as if we were in one of those old movies where they throw stick you at a table back by the swinging doors to the kitchen in the club when you insult the head waiter.

We were lured there initially by the marquee which promised Mediterranean cuisine, with "Tapas" in really large letters outside. Being fans of Tapas, we were quite disappointed to see nothing of the sort on the menu. (I should note that the menu was not displayed outside as it is at most of the Disney restaurants.) The food was mostly just standard fare, steak, chops, pasta, with some Mediterranean names, and couple dashes of spice, but not too much to risk moving beyond bland. Like most large eateries, the dishes will neither offend, nor inspire.

Very expensive, as are all things Disney. But I imagine if you just get the pizza, you will eat as well and save.
