The Best Places to Eat at Disney Springs

The Best Places to Eat at Disney Springs

Ever since Downtown Disney transformed into Disney Springs the dining options have dramatically increased. In fact there are so many dining options here now it can feel impossible where to pick to go on your vacation. The reality is with the major revamps lately there are no bad spots to go at Disney Springs. They all have unique offerings and so many fantastic dishes. But we know every family’s tastes are different. The goal of the rank is to help you narrow down what spots to eat at Disney Springs will be best for you. Here is what we think are the best places to eat at Disney Springs.

Boathouse

Boathouse Lobster Roll

This is may favorite place to eat when we are at Disney Springs. Just about every item I have had off the menu here has been fantastic. If you are not a seafood fan don’t worry they have an amazing burger and a great steak! If you want more information read our Boathouse Dining Review.

Chef Art Smith Homecoming

Fried Chicken Sandwich

Fried Chicken Sandwich – Buttermilk-brined for 24 hours and double-battered, dressed with hot sauce, aioli, iceberg lettuce, tomato and bread and butter pickles served with house-made barbecue chips drizzled with icebox dressing.

If you are looking for some good southern comfort food you should look no further than Homecoming at Disney Springs. This is my favorite fried chicken on property, seriously you won’t find better. And the Hummingbird cake is a MUST try sooo much yumm! For our full in-depth review read Chef Art Smith’s Homecoming Dining Review.

Blaze Pizza

The Best Places to Eat at Disney Springs 1

If you want some solid pizza at Disney World Blaze pizza is where you should head. You may have one of these in your neck of the woods as Blaze is a national chain. If you are wondering what is Blaze Pizza, I think the best way to describe it is, the Chipotle of Pizza. You walk down a line of scrumptious toppings and build your very own custom pizza. We also love how affordable the pizza is here and that’s why it ranks so high on our list. We have a full review on Blaze Pizza here.

Raglan Road

Ger's Bread & Butter Pudding

Ger’s Bread & Butter Pudding

Raglan Road Irish Pub can be found at Disney Springs, Walt Disney World. This restaurant features live music, Celtic dance, and of course Irish cuisine. The great thing about this restaurant is how authentic the food is here, it holds true to authentic Irish food.

While the sound levels here can make it hard to have a conversation with your group, the entertainment makes it worth it. The food here is fantastic with Fish and Chips being my go to meal here. If you have food allergies they also go above and beyond here. For more details on Raglan Road read our review.

Frontera Cocina

Oaxacan Red Chile Chicken

Oaxacan Red Chile Chicken. Crispy half chicken, Oaxacan red mole, plantain rice, warm corn tortillas.

Located in the Town Center of Disney Springs, Frontera Cocina is headed by Celebrity Chef Rick Bayless. Okay in all seriousness the food here is full of flavor and fresh, a great stop at Disney Springs. It serves up authentic Mexican food so if Tex-Mex is more your thing this may be one to skip. For our full review head over here.

D Luxe Burger

Classic Cheeseburger

Classic Cheeseburger. Signature Blend Beef topped with Cheddar, Lettuce, Tomato, Grilled Onion and Pickle

This is a great stop if you are looking for a nice big uicy burger! We also recently discovered their donut breaded chicken nuggets which are delicious. For more on our experience at D Luxe read our review.

T Rex Cafe

Jurassic Chicken Tidbits

Jurassic Chicken Tidbits

If you have kids specifically some boys in your family they are going to love dining here. The atmosphere takes you back to before the asteroid struck Earth. Word of warning be careful on the food here. The rotisserie chicken seems the best route to go here most of the other dishes have fallen flat here. For more read our full review of T Rex Cafe.

Paddlefish 

breakfast burger paddlefish

BREAKFAST BURGER – a 9 ounce proprietary blend, fried egg, hash browns, candied bacon, cheddar cheese, sweet onion jam, shredded lettuce, tomato, brioche

I love the food here, it is truly top-notch and has some amazing seafood options. What I don’t love here is the pricing. You can hope next door to the Boathouse and get a way better value and just as good of a meal. For more on Paddlefish read our full review.

STK Orlando

Filet from STK Disney Springs

This is the perfect place to get a fancy meal. They specialize in none other than steak of course. It has a young, hip vibe and turns into a nightclub around 9 pm.  This is definitely not the place to head if you have young kids you would be better off at some of the other Disney Springs options. For more read our full review of STK Orlando.


It’s important to not there are other Disney Springs restaurants not represented on our list. These are spots like Bongos and Wolf Gang Puck. They are missing because they are older and just don’t compare to the newer spots listed above. What do you think are the best places to eat at Disney Springs? Let us know in the comments below.

Both the Boathouse and Paddlefish restaurants require two dining credits. That is rather steep unless you want steak. Ridiculous for a burger, though.

They also have lobster and other expensive fish options! If you are on the dining plan it becomes a beast of constantly picking menu items that make it worth it. Which is why I recommend skipping it and paying out of pocket. Then you don't have to stress about getting your value out of it.
