    Default Best Disney springs restaurant?

    There are SO many choices now. We currently have a ressie at Frontera Cocina for our upcoming June trip but I'm not sold. We've done Raglan Road countless times and want to branch out. What are your favorites of the old or new ones?

    Depending on how much you want to spend, the Boathouse or Homecoming. Homecoming is more home style, southern cooking and more reasonable priced. The Boathouse is more expensive, but has good food and we don't feel like we're being rushed out.

    The only new place we have tried is The Boathouse. We enjoyed it and are returning there on our next trip later this month. We dined at lunch and didn't choose the most expensive items and our bill was actually very reasonable. Everything we had was delicious and fresh, and service was top notch.

    We went to the Boathouse in January and it was very good. We love House of Blues as well. Can't wait to try Paddlefish!

    I know there are a number of great new places like Boathouse and Paddlefish, but the latest that we're hearing really good stuff on is Chef Art Smith's Homecoming. It's comfort foods but they sound delicious!

    The Boathouse is the one that turned into Paddlefish, right? If so, can you let me know how it is? My son and his gf would like to go to Paddlefish.

    No, Paddlefish is its own thing separate from The Boathouse.

    No. Paddlefish is the restaurant formerly known as Fulton's.
