We chose Boatwright's because we were staying at the hotel. We purchased and suggest the Disney Dining plan and really wish we had chosen a different dining venue the evening we went to Boatwright's. Our server was nice however it took a bit of time to receive our cocktails and check and refills on water. Actually, we had to send... More

One thing I noticed about this place since my last visit was they have returned to their past menu selections and gotten away from the fancy foodie nonsense they had before. It had become a complete nightmare to eat here from the times before when we had come. But I digress from my past rant. This dining hall has a... More

I had the Shrimp and Grits and my husband had their Prime Rib. The later was cooked to his liking and veggies not overcooked which I ate since I did not get any veggies with my entree. The shrimp and grits was very rich so if you can't tolerate cream be warned. There was plenty of shrimp, more then enough... More

We stopped in to have dinner after a great day in the Park. Drinks were very good, we had several types across the six, but the flashing ice cube won the award for party in a glass. Appetizers were deep fried varieties of veg and meat. They were OK. For dinner we had different choices, everyone liked their dinners. To... More

I had such high hopes for this restaurant. I was hoping to put an excellent rating for this place but there was nothing extraordinary to point out at all. Rudeness: The waiter that we had was rude from the beginning. I innocently ask the table if we were all ready to order and the waiter (Susan) taps my menu with... More

We are staying at Disney's Port Orleans hotel next to Riverside, so thought a short stroll along the river, then dinner would be a great end to our 2nd day. The staff were nice and friendly and quick with menus and drinks. We are the standard dining plan. Starters arrived & ok, my husband finished 1st, his plate was whisked... More

We had a glass of wine (cab) and a Moscow Mule. The latter was executed perfectly and the wine was deep and full as a cab should be. The restaurant provides delicious corn bread rather than traditional bread and it was tasty indeed. We split a light and fresh crab cake as an appetizer and then indulged in a risotto... More

Went to Boatwrights on the spur of the moment looking for some Cajan food. We were pleasantly surprised. The Jambalaya was quite good. My wife had the catfish which she enjoyed. Although the decor was not exactly NOLA, the food was. The service was great and Stephanie our waitress was engaging. She was right although the Sazarec was not like... More
