Description: "Boatwright's Dining Hall is a Southern, shipyard-themed casual restaurant serving dinner at Disney's Port Orleans Resort - Riverside. It's a shipbuilder's paradise parked alongside the Sassagoula River that winds through the resort.This restored boat-construction warehouse features the large wooden hull of a fishing boat suspended from the ceiling, from which dangle rustic, rope-strung lanterns. Fantastic shipbuilding tools and artifacts adorn the high walls, while shop rags are used as napkins and tool boxes contain salt shakers. Fireplaces keep the vibe and the interior quite cozy.This popular table-service restaurant features Southern-style cuisine as well as American dishes imbued with the South. Savory entrees such as jambalaya and blackened red snapper, and more traditional fare like prime rib, pasta with shrimp and filet mignon, grace dinner plates. Southern sides and pecan pie round out the dining experience.A children's menu is available for dinner.

“Tasty food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2014

The food here is very good. The fried oysters and catfish we had came with some nicely accompanied sauces. The bread pudding was very good, can feed 3, and worth the calories. Our waitress was very friendly and helpful. May have to try the jambalaya

“Delicious, fast food with good service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2014

We were in and out with dinner and dessert within an hour and didn't feel rushed. The food was absolutely mouthwater, everything from the cornbread to the meal to dessert. They have a very accommodating kids menu as well. Wait staff was very attentive. We wished we had a chance to get back here before we left.
The only thing I would say we didn't enjoy was their dessert selection. They had nothing that screamed New Orleans and their bread pudding was very very dry (which I am not used to).

“Great New Orleans style food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2014

We ate at Boatwrights during our stay at Riverside this weekend and I cannot say enough good things about it. The food was delicious, New Orleans style food (crawfish, shrimp, rice, sausage, etc..). I would note that like New Orleans, most of the food is spicy, but oh so good. Like all Disney restaurants, the absolute best time to book dinner is at OPENING, in this case was 5pm. You avoid the restaurant running behind when you do this and get it and out before the crowds. The service here was very good, and they even let my little one ring the opening bell. I would recommend this hidden gem to anyone staying at Disney.

“Boatwright's a taste of New Orleans”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2014

I had the Andouille crusted Catfish and it was mouthwatering. It had the right amount of flavor and spices. This restaurant has the atmosphere and taste of New Orleans. I would definitely recommend this restaurant. If you are not staying at the Port Orleans hotel then it may be a little trek to get here but well worth it. Make the time to go, you won't be disappointed.
