Disney Springs Restaurants offers abundant options that friends and families can enjoy. From the unique ambiance to the delicious food, the restaurants in Disney Springs have it all. Even better, if you are staying at a hotel close to Disney Springs, you may be able to hit all these recommendations. Here are my top 3 favorite places to eat at Disney Springs, so far!
Raglan Road Irish Pub and Restaurant
The first restaurant that is one of my favorite places to eat at Disney Springs is Raglan Road Irish Pub and Restaurant. Raglan Road is an Irish pub unlike any other. Both the interior and exterior designs of Raglan Road are inspired by Irish pubs in Dublin. From the Irish furniture to the antiques and art scattered inside, the ambiance of Raglan Road makes this one of my favorite restaurants because it feels like I am taken to Ireland and enjoying delicious authentic Irish food.
Another reason why Raglan Road is one of my favorite restaurants is because of their delicious food and drinks that are inspired by popular Irish dishes. A couple of their popular appetizers that I recommend getting are the Nom Nom Wings and the Chicken Lollipops. Both were delicious and cooked to perfection. They also bring out Irish Soda Bread as a starter. The idea of Soda Bread was different to me but tasted good, especially when you dip it into the Guinness sauce.
I have tried a few of their entrees and would recommend that you try the bangers and mash,
their classic fish and chips, or the Raglan Risotto. Each dish is well put together with its unique flavors. They truly embody what an Irish dish should taste like making Raglan Road more of an authentic Irish Pub.
Raglan Road also has live entertainment where performers will play Irish music and dance that you can enjoy with their Irish-inspired cocktails. However, this only occurs on select dates inside their main dining room and at the outdoor bar.
Another one of my favorite restaurants at Disney Springs is Frontera Cocina. Frontera Cocina is
a unique, Mexican-style restaurant found between “The Landing” and “Town Center”.
One reason why this is one of my favorite restaurants at Disney Springs is because of the
interior ambiance. When you step inside, you are greeted with a colorful ambiance with unique artwork, an open kitchen, and plenty of decorations that are inspired by Mexican heritage. There is even a tequila “Wall of Fame”. The atmosphere also gives you a welcoming vibe just like the Hispanic culture.
The food and drinks were inspired by Mexican dishes and are just as amazing as the ambiance. For appetizers, I ordered the Chipotle Chicken Flautas. The flautas were delicious and savory and tasted even better when it was dipped into the crema. I also had to order a basket of tortilla chips with salsa. The tortilla chips were crispy and salted perfectly and the salsa tasted very fresh and light.
For the entrees, I ordered the Shrimp Mojo de Ajo. This was recommended to me by my server, and it was delicious. Everything in the dish was seasoned to perfection and the mojo de ajo was not overpowering and complimented the dish very well. I was able to taste the carne asada tacos which were very good as well. For those that are 21 and over, Frontera Cocina has a full drink menu and a bar as well. To really get into the Mexican theming, I recommend getting one of their specialty margaritas. If you’re not much of a margarita fan, they do have other beers or cocktails that you can order as well.
The BOATHOUSE at Disney Springs
Finally, one of my all-time favorites and a popular must-dine at restaurants at Disney Springs is
the BOATHOUSE. The BOATHOUSE is a waterside dining restaurant so you can enjoy the view
of the water while eating delicious food and drinks.
The ambiance of this restaurant is also unique. Stepping into this restaurant, you are greeted
with a nautical theme with one-of-a-kind decorations and designs along the walls and furniture.
Some tables were designed to resemble boats, but they also have a boat booth that families
can request to dine in. If you love oysters, the BOATHOUSE even has a raw bar for you to
The ambiance of the BOATHOUSE is also complemented by the amazing food and drinks that
they serve. They first brought out free bread rolls with butter. The warm rolls were fluffy inside
and tasted so good. I also ordered the Firecracker Shrimp for my appetizer which was so
yummy. The shrimp was cooked perfectly, and the sauce added the right amount of sweetness
I ordered filet mignon for my entree with roasted garlic and a baked potato on the side. The
steak was cooked at a perfect medium-rare and seasoned beautifully. The roasted garlic enhanced the flavor of the filet mignon as well.
Also, since you’re already close, be sure to check out the Amphicar that launches right next to the Boathouse. The Amphicar is a one of a kind experience that takes you around Disney Springs in a car that transforms in to a boat.
These are just a few Disney Springs Restaurants to consider. We would love to hear your feedback and recommendations!
