Disney's Port Orleans Resort - Riverside


Andouille-crusted catfish; jambalaya with chicken and andouille sausage.

Entrée Range

Dinner: Adult $19-36


Long considered a hidden gem of Disney resort dining, Boatwright’s can be tough-to-find reservation, but it’s worth the visit (and wait prior to seating) when you do. Nothing here is over-the-top or fancy, but a stop here will yield a truly satisfying meal full of Southern and bayou flavors with friendly and honest service.

Setting and Atmosphere

Situated between River Roost Lounge and Riverside Mill Food Court, just off of Port Orleans Riverside’s lobby, Boatwright’s features a simply-appointed open dining room bathed in golden wood finishes, with diners feasting on New Orleans-inspired classics underneath a large boat skeleton. Always bustling and tad noisy, the restaurant serves dinner daily.

House Specialties

Jambalaya and Shrimp and Grits anchor the Southern-centric menu, with other dishes like the Nashville hot chicken and beer-infused barbecue smoked ribs bringing modern flair to traditional plates. Mardi Gras fritters, deep fried and stuffed with pimiento cheese please all palates to start the meal, and any dessert on the menu is certain to impress.

Other Recommendations

Prime rib, French onion soup, and fried green tomatoes all offer flavors familiar to most, competent in execution.
