With all of the new changes happening at Disney Springs, many new dining locations have sprung up with others still to come. Here are my top 5 recommendations. Most of them are new, but I have included a classic that still is a favorite for many.
#5 The Boathouse
This is a must see! The Nautical Decor is spectacular. Each room has it’s own seaside nautical theme. There is even a speedboat inside the main dining room. Serving the freshest seafood and steaks. Also, try the lobster bisque which is amazing. After dinner, take a walk outside to the dock and check out some of the coolest classic boats. It is like a mini boat museum. This is more of an upscale dining experience. Featuring a nice dockside bar too.
#4 Jock Lindsey’s Hangar Bar
Set in a 1940’s Airplane Hangar turned dive bar. Very small and cozy with seating inside and outside. Offering a Lounge Menu Serving small plates and cocktails. So if you enjoy trying a mix of small appetizer plates, then you will like Jock Lindsey’s Hangar Bar. Some options on the menu include sliders, falafel, blt flatbread, chicken wings and tuna tacos.They also have an Aviator’s beer flight if you want to taste a few different beer choices.
#3 Morimoto Asia

They also have a nice outdoor patio with seating on the upper level next to the Sushi bar. Don’t forget to try the Sake Sangria you will not be disappointed.
#2 Raglan Road
This is a classic Irish Pub themed restaurant. Offering great food, live music and live Irish step dancers. This is not one of the new restaurants that just opened, but it is a must do. If this is your first time visiting Raglan Road make sure to dine inside to get the full experience. They do offer outside seating, where you will miss out on all the action happening on the main and center stage. If you are looking for a quiet place to dine, skip Raglan Road. This is a fun, loud fun place to dine for the entire family. Be sure to try the Shepard’s Pie or Fish & Chips.
