While strolling through Disney Springs on a Sunday morning in April, doing some last-minute shopping before hitting the road, I realized that I wanted a truly memorable lunch. The weather was gorgeous, and I was in the mood for some seafood. Sadly all of the restaurants serving sushi were closed, but that ended up being a wonderful accident because it meant that I got to eat at The Boathouse!
Of course, I was drawn in by the nautical themed shop which, at least at one point, was a Tommy Bahama retailer. They have the most wonderful beach-themed accessories and goodies. Definitely a must-shop, even if there’s nothing with a special mouse embroidered in sight.
Upon entering The Boathouse, I was greeted by a charming 1940s style Oyster Bar, which perfectly fit the theme of the restaurant. While it did make me crave oysters, I was much more tempted by what I saw past the bar…
They have a Dockside Bar! I walked across a dock to this adorable extension of The Boathouse and grabbed a lake-side table.
I started with a margarita…. I was ready to not have anything else to drink after the Flower & Garden Festival on Saturday,
Oysters! I love oysters. A perfect portion size for one.
The scallops on grits was INCREDIBLE! I wanted to eat every single bite, but I was so stuffed, I couldn’t finish it. The corn flavors played nicely and the scallops were perfectly seared and seasoned so the outsides were packed with flavor and the insides soft and succulent.
Where’s your favorite place to eat at Disney Springs? Tell me below in the comments!
Welcome back! I’ve compiled a list of all of the places to dine at Walt Disney World! Inspired by Disney-grammer @DisneyAtoZ, I’m determined to someday eat at every single one of them. But for now, I’m going to have to settle for just trying a few each year. I’m linking to my restaurant reviews, and will put some notes on each restaurant below. I’m super excited to be working on this project and cannot wait to review all of the Disney Dining options.
