There are more than 100 table-service restaurants in Disney World and trying to decide where to eat can be overwhelming. To make it easier, we’ve come up with our top 5 restaurants for seafood at Disney World.
On the 15th floor of Disney’s Contemporary sits California Grill. The cuisine celebrates the fresh, seasonal flavors of California. It’s location gives an amazing panoramic view with includes Magic Kingdom, making it a perfect place for a romanic dinner.
The menu changes seasonally. However, some of the dishes only change slightly, instead of gnocchi with the scallops, you may have spring onion fondue. You will always find fresh sushi on the menu at California Grill. Seafood lovers will be happy to know that about half of the menu is usually seafood.

Fulton’s Crab House
The riverboat sitting out on the water in Disney Springs is Fulton’s Crab House. The Stone Crab Lounge Raw Bar is on the first floor, with the main dining room located upstairs overlooking Disney Springs.
Many of the items on the menu are staples, but Chef Mark Boor does add a few seasonally items. The menu is full of seafood, with a few dishes for the non-seafood lovers. The lunch menu is on the lighter side with sandwiches and for dinner there are lobster and crab plates.
For lunch, we highly recommend the BLT Crab Cake sandwich an Florida Grouper. Both are fantastic dishes that are really fresh and full of flavor.
A waterfront restaurant with a fantastic view of Magic Kingdom across Seven Seas Lagoon, Narcoossee’s is offers seafood in a fine dining atmosphere. It’s the perfect restaurant for a romanic dinner with a view of Wishes.
The menu is mostly seafood but there are a number of dishes that are chicken, beef and ribs. Our favorite dish is the filet mignon with a butter poached lobster tail. You really can’t go wrong with surf and turf… it’s the best of both worlds. It’s not seafood, but we recommend saving room for the almond-crusted cheesecake (it’s the best cheesecake at Disney World!).
The newest restaurant in the soon-to-be The Landing in Disney Springs is The BOATHOUSE. It’s a fun, unique boat themed restaurant. Guests can enjoy dining inside and viewing the many boathouse decorations or outside with a stunning view of the water and many antique boats.
The menu is expansive with menu categories, such as Field Day, Fish or Cut Bait, Stem to Stern and Square Meals. The fish is caught fresh and delivered to the restaurant daily. If you enjoy raw fish, you must try the oysters. They are amazing! The BOATHOUSE is one of those restaurants that you can’t go wrong with what you order. The food is just that good.
If your pocketbook allows, we highly recommend trying the Beach & Sea Lobster Bake (For Two) – 1¼ Whole Maine Lobster, Clams, Mussels, Andouille Sausage, Red Potatoes, Corn on the Cob and Boathouse Lobster Broth or The BOATHOUSE Surf & Turf Table (Serves Two) – 32 oz. Dry Aged Long Bone Rib Chop and 1¼ lb. Whole Maine Lobster. You have to admit your mouth is watering after reading that.

Flying Fish Café
On the boardwalk at Disney’s BoardWalk Inn and Villas is Flying Fish Café. The whimsical restaurant features fresh seafood in a fun, laid-back dining room.
The menu changes seasonally with a standard specialty – Flying Fish Cafés Idaho Potato-wrapped Red Snapper. It’s always on the menu and it’s a favorite of many guests. You really can’t go wrong with anything on the menu. Everything is great!
For guests who want to experience something a little more unique, there is the Chef’s Tasting Wine Dinner. It’s a 5-course prix fixe menu with perfectly paired wines.
