We love Boatwright! In three trips to WDW together, and several signature dinners, Boatwright's is still DH's favorite: the service is great, we have always enjoyed the food, and they have real, brewed sweet tea!

Wife and I ate there last year and really enjoyed it. We both had the jumbalaya and the service and food were really good. Have I had better meals? Sure. But it's nowhere near the worst meal and I would absolutely eat there again.

Just an FYI, Boatwright's no longer serves breakfast, only dinner. So many on this thread were stating what a great breakfast they had there, bummer, it sounded really good!

That's what happens when somebody resurrects a 2008 thread......

We had dinner at BW earlier this year. We had never eaten there before; I picked it mostly because we wanted to see Bob Jackson's show that evening in the lounge. DH likes spicy food so I knew he'd be OK with Cajun choices, and I figured it was Disney so there would have to be something more "bland" for me.

I think BW wins the award for "restaurant that most exceeded my expectations". It was not our best meal by any means, but my expectations going in were so low that I was quite pleaseantly surprised. DH had the andouille-crusted catfish with cayenne butter (made my mouth burn just typing that; did I mention that I DON'T like spicy foods?). The piece of fish was enormous and he swore that it was not too heavily spiced at all. The catfish itself was well-cooked and did not have a heavy or oily taste to it, as catfish sometimes can. It came over a mountain of dirty rice iirc.

I had the beef medallions. Very tender, very flavorful. The "mac n cheese" is grown-up mac & cheese: shells with a nice white cheddar sauce, and I believe there were some asparagus spears on the plate as well. I took a corner of the crawfish beignet and thought it was nasty, but they had lovely cornbread for the table and we did get a refill on that basket. Desserts were just OK; a little dry. But after an 'Ohana dinner I don't think I would have appreciated anybody else's bread pudding.

Service was fine too. We had an ADR and waited no more than 10 minutes on a weeknight in May. Overall I would recommend BW, especially if it is convenient to your resort or if, like us, you want dinner before a raucous night down the hall with Bob Jackson.

Thanks for the review!
