Walt Disney World Dolphin Hotel


Clam chowder, grilled fish, 2-pound Maine lobster, dry-aged beef


Celebrity chef Todd English’s “upscale underwater” eatery caters to a wide variety of clients – conventioneers who frequent the hotel, families on vacation, and those in search of a night out. The menu skews expensive, but the food nearly always delivers, with fresh seafood, steaks, high-end cocktails, and an extensive wine list taking center stage, and world-class desserts on the horizon.

Setting and Atmosphere

A cool-toned bar and lounge area envelop entering guests into an almost nightclub atmosphere, only to open to a spacious open dining room decked to the nines in blues and bubbles. The recent renovation of nearby Flying Fish is eerily reminiscent of bluezoo’s main dining space, with bubbles dangling from high above and textures in place to make you (and the fish on your plate!) feel at home. In fact, the restaurant’s name is courtesy of Chef English’s son, who as a young boy saw an under-the-sea movie and said it looked like a “blue zoo.”

Adjacent to the restaurant’s bar and lounge is a peek-in open kitchen and raw bar station, as well as a circular rotisserie grill sure to draw the eyes of passersby and diners nearby, as it often features whole-roasted fish that seem to dance on the coals (so much so, the restaurant sells it as their signature “Dancing Fish of the Day”).

House Specialties

The aforementioned Dancing Fish of the day is always local, while the “simply fish” dishes are fresh and feature a dizzying array of accompaniments and sauces to choose from; the lightest clam chowder ever, and fresh salads featuring locally-sourced produce cited on the menu start the meal off right. Low country shrimp and grits, a two-pound Cantonese-style glazed lobster, and miso-glazed sea bass send the menu to different continents with much success.

Other Recommendations

Lobster mac and cheese that your table will fight over as a side dish, steaks cooked to perfection, and, only available in the restaurant’s lounge (where the full menu is also on offer), one of the best burgers at Walt Disney World.
