The service was great, the food was good, the menu selection was minimal. We went there because it was close and easy but we wouldn't go again. It wasn't bad, by any means, it was just pretty average. The server was what you would expect at a Disney restaurant, helpful and friendly so we left satisfied.

This was the best meal we had at Disney! We are here our first night for convenience after a late afternoon arrival and after several disappointing meals at the more well known must-do restaurants, we came back here for a second meal. The service is so-so, it the food made up for it!

This place looks unassuming, and if you're not staying at Riverside you probably wouldn't make your way over, but if you're in the area, eat here. Probably one of the best places I've eaten at within the parks. Good food, good service, and it won't leave you disappointed like some of the other, more posh, restaurants might. Cheers.

My family and I were really interested in trying some creole style food so we knew we wanted to book a table at Boatwrights Dining Hall as part of our Disney dining plan and we weren't disappointed! We loved the jambalaya, catfish and Pecan Pie! Our server Jenny couldn't do enough for us and she was so lovely. When we... More

The atmosphere is a clean shipyard. The food here is Cajun. Everything was tremendous. The appetizers were a great start, especially the pimento fritters and French onion soup. Entrees were all good. The prime rib was huge and tasty, shrimp and grits rich and filling. We have the Dining Plan so dessert was included. The pecan pie and peanut butter... More

We just got back from an excellent meal at Boatwright's. Our server Michelle was great, the food was delicious. We were a little concerned that children's options might be limited, but the 3 kids in our party (4, 7, and 7 years old) all found things very much to their liking even when asked to sit politely at a nice...

This is the 2nd time I visited this restaurant, because the 1st time was that good. I ordered the shrimp and grits, again, and it was even better the 2nd go! It was so good that I asked for the recipe and was so graciously given so I can make it when I get home! Everyone else had entrees that... More

I was so over joyed with this restaurant! I tried the Chicken and waffles...now I can't wait to get back. The chicken (boneless breast) was the juiciest I've ever had. It was sitting on a bed of waffles and sitting beside it was hot maple syrup with bacon crumbles in it. My friend had a fish there and said it... More

We have just had a very unpleasant experience in this restaurant. Although the food was at best ordinary and plain it was the behaviour of the leadership team of the staff that was unbelievable - aloof, sour faced and clearly speaking about the customers in front of the restaurant. Whilst our waitress was working her backside off these 3/4 senior... More

We had a reservation for 8:05pm and arrived promptly at 8pm. We then waited 30 minutes to be seated. ??? Hostess kept saying that they were waiting for tables to be bused but there were many open, clear tables. After finally, being seated it was another 15 minutes before the waitress acknowledged us. By the time she got there, we... More
