Disney's Signature Flying Fish restaurant on the BoardWalk has reopened after a major remodel - find out what we thought.
Wild Gulf shrimp, Wild Alaskan King Salmon, Wagyu Filet of Beef and a Bison Strip Loin are stars of the new Flying Fish menu.
A new name, new look dining room and a new cocktail lounge are all part of the Flying Fish makeover opening late summer on Disney's BoardWalk.
Nearly all Disney operated quick service and table service restaurants now offer allergy-friendly menus - read on for details.
Last evening my wife and I headed out to the Boardwalk to give the "new" Flying Fish a go for dinner. The decor is a little different from the older version of the restaurant but still, very nice on the inside and comfortable for dinning.
We started with the Corn-Encrusted Wild Gulf Shrimp & the Blue Crab Bisque. The shrimp were prepared very well with just enough breading to not over due it. The shrimp itself were fresh and cooked perfectly.
The Blue Crab Bisque was also very good! It had a good amount of ample crab meat to make it a filling starter though not too much. Again, prepared perfectly.
For our entree, we shared the Wagyu Filet Mignon (FYI ... The steak was already cut in half for us) This was one of the best meals I have had in some time. Easily in the top-10 best steaks I have ever eaten. It was prepared perfectly. The bordelaise sauce was awesome and the vegetables were cooked to perfection.
Again, this was easily the best meal I have had on Disney property since moving here three years ago. Everything was cooked to perfection and was delicious. If you were apprehensive about eating here after the refurbishment, don't.
In my opinion this meal/steak was easily better than Le Cellier, Yachtsman & Shulu's. The only other steak that was this good (no better no worse) was at Bull & Bear.
We will be eating here again in the very near future. New favourite restaurant on property!
If you are in Orlando...you must go to the Flying Fish at the Boardwalk Inn at Epcot...The atmosphere is fantastic and the food is exceptional...The Team from the Executive Chef Tim Majoras to the dishwashers know how to deliver a wonderful experience.
My family experienced one of the best times of our lives. Due to an unfortunate situation we needed a smile in our lives. To start was a week vacation in Disney and the second thing was the experience at the Flying Fish Cafe. I booked at home reservations for the wine and dine meal and could not say enough about it. Courses were served with wine and our waiter described each and every one to the tee. The assistant chef described the meal and the wine complimented each and every bite. Sitting at the cooking station alone was an adventure one could not even describe, watching food being cooked and prepped for the general public. After two hours of eating and drinking, it was time to leave and I have to say that I would be the first in line to go back to this restaurant in a second. Thank you for the experience and I do hope we can meet again and do it all over again. One thing, I am sorry I am so late in writing a review on the place but between work and life it took a while. See you soon guys, Thanks.
We've been to Disneyworld 4 times in the past 6 years, and stayed at the Boardwalk for the last two. We tried the Flying Fish the first time (on our second visit), just because it was close to the hotel. Afterwards, we decided we had been missing out on a meal fit for kings.
Everything on the menu is absolutely delicious and is prepared exactly as you order it. The fish is perfectly prepared and seasoned and the desserts - well, it's tempting to lick the plates or bowls clean.
The service is quick and attentive without being overbearing and the servers we've had have been outstanding.
We recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting Disneyworld - anytime. While there are most assuredly other good restaurants at Disneyworld (Narcoossee's, etc), this is the absolute best - hands down.
