Boatwright's was one of our 'go to' WDW resort restaurants but not any more. It is hard to know where to start - the service and the food were terrible. It wasn't crowded but it took a long time to get our food. There were...More

We arrived a little early for our reservation and we quickly seated. The restaurant was surprisingly empty. Service was quick. My shrimp and grits were wonderful but my husbands steak was slightly fatty. We will visit again.

This is not just a Cajun restaurant. I love Cajun food, but I don't eat shellfish so I didn't think I would have much to choose from and while the options for me were limited, everything I had was really good and I now have...More
