Best Eats At Disney Springs (And Drinks!)

There are 63 dining options at Disney Springs, an overwhelming number. How do you pick which ones to try? We are here to help! These are our best eats at Disney Springs, and drinks, which made an impact. Whether you are looking for a delicious appetizer or hearty meal, refreshing frozen drink or a cocktail, this Disney Springs list has something for everyone. 


Best Appetizers At Disney Springs

Wine Bar George

Wine Bar George is where to go for some delicious starters, including the Crispy Mac and Cheese Bites. The macaroni and cheese is ooey and gooey, while the coating is light and crispy.

Although these Mac and Cheese Bites are deep fried, they aren’t greasy at all. The tomato sauce and pecorino cheese topping only make the Crispy Mac and Cheese Bites more desirable. 

Worth noting: Wine Bar George has an allergy menu, if needed.


The Boathouse

If you are a shrimp fan, The Boathouse‘s Firecracker Shrimp is delightful. Coated in Sriracha Mayo, the shrimp is served alongside Serrano chilis and sweet peppers. This shrimp dish is unlike any Firecracker Shrimp I’ve ever had–and based on how many I’ve tried around the country, I am a Firecracker Shrimp expert!


Terralina Crafted Italian

We love the Crispy Eggplant Fries, crispy on the outside, soft on the inside, from Terralina Crafted Italian. Don’t skip the lemon-caper aioli sauce—it’s a great combination!

If you are into social media, you have to have seen a picture of the gorgeous Lobster Corn Dogs from Paddlefish. This hearty appetizer is addictive, and so picture-perfect.

The concept is pretty simple, succulent lobster dipped into corn dog batter and deep-fried to a beautiful shade of brown. While I think the lobster corn dogs are tasty on their own, dipping them in sweet chili aioli elevates them even higher.


Best Main Courses At Disney Springs

We visit The Boathouse quite a bit. The food and ambiance are great, plus you can’t beat the scenery. Try the Jumbo Lump Crab Cake, which as the name implies, is quite a portion.

The dish is served with coleslaw, chipotle and tartar sauces, and is absolutely wonderful. Not a lot of fillers in this extremely good crab cake.



Paddlefish is another restaurant at Disney Springs where you can get scrumptious seafood. We go for the Fish & Chips there. While I am typically a sauce girl, I can easily skip the extra calories in the tartar sauce for these phenomenal bites.

Having eaten fish & chips around the world, this one is up there with the best.


Paddlefish’s made-to-order Snow Crab Boil comes with 10 ounces of Snow Crab, sweet corn on the cob, red potatoes, and cornbread. The crab legs are cooked perfectly, so cracking them is a breeze. It is yet another great meal to try.


Terralina Crafted Italian

It isn’t often we go out for Italian food, but at Disney Springs, Terralina Crafted Italian is so good that we can’t resist. My daughter swears by the Chicken Parmesan, with a crispy chicken breast topped with just the right amount of marinara sauce.

Then, plenty of gooey cheese is melted on the top, and dusted with Parmesan. The portions are large, so there may even be enough to take home for leftovers.


The Boathouse

If you are in the mood for a steak dinner, try the Boneless Ribeye from The Boathouse. There are six Gibsons heritage steaks on the menu. Our pick is the 75-day aged Gibsons Grass-Fed Australian boneless ribeye, a thing of beauty. The steak is cooked to perfection and the taste, sublime.

Pair your steak with one of the Boathouse’s side items, such as truffle fries, grilled asparagus, or Shishito peppers.


Chicken Guy

Who can pass up a snack or meal from Chicken Guy, the quick-serve restaurant from Chef Guy Fieri? We love the spicy kick in the fry seasoning, and the light and tasty chicken tender batter. You can also get your chicken grilled, for a healthier alternative.


Sauce lovers unite for a moment to pay thanks to Chicken Guy for the awesome 22 different sauces to choose from. A few to pick from include donkey sauce (his original creation), bourbon brown sugar BBQ, Nashville hot honey, or garlic parmesan.


Brunch Ideas at Disney Springs

If you’re interested in having brunch at Disney Springs, check out Wine Bar George. This popular eatery serves a Wine Country Brunch from 10:30 AM to 2 PM on Saturdays and Sundays. Reservations are recommended.


The French Toast, thick brioche with mascarpone cheese and a decadent caramel sauce, is off-the-hook. Two other tasty options are the Steak & Egg Frites (with sriracha hollandaise- yum), and homemade Sausage Gravy & Biscuits with bacon and eggs.

Honestly, the Wine Country Brunch is reason enough to visit Disney Springs and fight the crowds on the weekend.


Best Drinks At Disney Springs

Whether you’re visiting Wine Bar George for brunch, lunch, or dinner, The Hoot is a great drink choice. Made with Hooten Young American Whiskey, G.E. Massenez Creme de Cassis, and a splash of ginger beer, this featured cocktail is really tasty.

They have all sorts of fascinating creations. Mixology is one of Wine Bar George’s specialties.


Not to be left out of the best Disney Springs drink options is The Boathouse. Their Duck, Duck, Razz is arguably Disney Springs’ cutest drink, and definitely Instagram-worthy.


Disney Springs Amphicar Tour

When you’ve finished your cocktail, head outside to splurge on a vintage Amphicar Tour. The Boathouse is the only place you can take a ride in one of these rare cars that drive on land and enter the water with a splash.

Rates are $125 for a 20-minute guided tour of beautiful Lake Buena Vista, and the cars hold between three and four people. It’s the perfect way to end your day at Disney Springs.

Please note, all persons must be able to transfer from wheelchair/ECV for this ride option.


Noteworthy Frozen Drinks

Get your Dole Whip fix outside of a Walt Disney World park with Wine Bar George’s Frozcato. Made with DOLE WHIP Pineapple, Moscato, pineapple, and vodka, it is an easy to drink concoction that leaves you wanting more.

Enjoy it while dining at Wine Bar George or pick one up at The Basket. There are also some yummy non-alcoholic drink choices, such as the cherry smash.

Tip: Buy a Cockcicle to keep your Frozcato cold. You can reuse it each time you purchase a drink at Wine Bar George.


We are also fans of the frozen Bellinis from Terralina Crafted Italian. These sweet drinks are made with peaches, Zardetto private cuvée prosecco, Rothman & Winter and Orchard Peach liqueur.

The drink is refreshing, unique, and has a beautiful presentation with a little rosemary sprig garnish.
