I cannot believe how great this place was. I had the crab duo. It had been quite sometime since I had crab, and our server was quite understanding and showed me the tricks to get the meat out. Food tasted fresh and wonderful. Our kids liked the fact that on the deluxe meal plan they could order from the adult menu. The deserts were great. In the end it was our server who really was the star of the day.

The first set of doors you get to when approaching from the disney marketplace was chained off giving us the impression they weren't open for lunch, however after following another group who was also unsure if they were open we found the second set of doors to be open. We arrived around 1pm for Lunch after a 15 minute wait we were seated in a crowded dining room. Around 1:30 the dining room cleared out and there were only a few of us left eating lunch - made for a pleasant and quiet meal. Our waiter was Josh. I don't normally remember waiter's names but he made a rhyme for his name and said you'll never forget my name. Anyway the waiter was helpful and friendly. He joked around with the kids and explained the specials and recommended a few dishes to us. He was quick to refill drinks and get any additional requests (ketchup, missing items, etc). My wife and I played it safe and went with shrimp and fish n' chips. Kids got chicken meals and were happy with them. We spent $100 for 4 of us during lunch which included an appetizer, dinner is a little more expensive. I'd return again on a future trip and would probably come for dinner next time.

We had lunch at Fulton's yesterday and while the food was excellent, our waiter, Wesley, was even better!! He was so attentive and interested in making sure that we had a wonderful dining experience. Wesley exhibits the true Disney persona.

Fulton's Crabhouse is interestingly situated on a steamboat - so if there's a storm outside and choppy waves - you can inspect the same up and down motion inside. As long as you don't have history of inner ear problems, you will probably be fine.
The dining area is family friendly. Our daughter enjoyed the opportunity to immediately begin coloring on the paper tablecloth, and the children's menu had more choices than usual. She enjoyed her spaghetti, which was mercifully simple (the way a child likes their spaghetti).
The portabella mushroom fries appetizer was disappointing... mostly because we've enjoyed ACTUAL portabella mushroom fries before, and knew they could be delicious. These bulbous greasy mushroom slices were too big to be united in crispiness with their beer-batter-like coating - so we found ourselves either eating batter or eating mushroom. However, they served a crab dip with the bread, which we discovered was actually delicious when schlepped on to the mushroom pieces.
My crab dinner was served simply with red potatoes and corn-on-the-cob, delicious in its simpleness. My husband's seared tuna was cooked correctly and he said it was delicious.
Their prices seemed high, but really, they are pretty comparable with other seafood restaurants in Orlando. They are situated in "Downtown Disney," so in a sense - it's a resort restaurant. Still, the food and service were good, the ambiance was better than average... it just wasn't "the best meal" we ever had...

This was a big disappointment. We planned to come here to enjoy a one special dining out during our time at Disney. It is portrayed as an exquisite seafood restaurant but felt more like a messy family Denny's or a dirty pub. The ambience was ruined by screaming kids and the service was rushed and our waiter constantly recommended the most expensive dishes. The food was nice but ridiculously overpriced for what it was. Perhaps this would be suitable for a family with young kids and a big wallet but this is not high end.
