If you need a break from WDW parks and want to each at the resort, Boatwright's is a good option. I wouldn't recommend it unless you're staying at Port Orleans, though, as bus transportation is a pain from other resorts. Per usual, the WDW staff is excellent. The food here is themed to be Louisiana style...jambalaya, po' boys, etouffe. I... More

My wife and I had visited Boatwright's on several occasions and we were always pleased with the food and service. We returned last week on a get away to Disney World because my wife wanted a specific dish she had on our last visit. To her dismay it was not on the menu. We had a great and friendly waitress...

if staying at a Port Orleans resort. Had the New York strip, and was good, but not great. Staff was attentive, and setting was nice and casual.

We always stay at Port Orleans Riverside, and had passed by Boatwright's many times but never went in as it did not look overly appealing from the hallway. We were tired one evening and instead of traveling to dinner, stayed in. We were able to get a table at 7:30, after a bit of confusion with the gentleman seating people.... More

My husband and I stayed at French Quarter and went over to Riverside to try Boatwrights. We were not disappointed. Theme and decor is nice and restaurant was clean. I had never had Jambalaya before, so I was excited to try theirs. It was so flavorful and delicious. My husband had the vegetarian Jambalaya and he enjoyed his as well.... More

We really enjoyed this restaurant located at the Port Orleans Resort located inside Disney. It was clean and service was excellent. Jambalaya was very spicey and delicious. Others in our party ordered the steak and pasta dishes all were enjoyed. Prices average for Disney. Recommended.

This is the restaurant I specifically picked to eat at during my family's 7-day trip to Disney. Loved their Cajun! I got Jambalaya, my wife ordered Shrimp & Grits. The NY Strip was wonderful as well. And the cornbread! Delicious!! And I can't leave out the desserts! I got crème brulee; my son got banana pudding. We could not go... More

We had a reservation but still had to wait 30 minutes to be seated, the worst part about that was when we finally were seated we found the restaurant was more than half empty!! The service was good from that point on. The food was decent but really nothing special. I don't think I would bother visiting again.

While staying at Walt Disney World we decided to try the restaurant at the Riverside at Port of Orleans Resort. We went on our last evening there, and so it was at the end of a series of long tiring days. Seated very promptly and greeted very graciously by Teresa, we welcomed Sue as our server. She was efficient, informative... More
