Disney’s Boardwalk Dining
There are a variety of ways to reach the Boardwalk, but for the majority of visitors the most convenient approach is to park at the Boardwalk Inn car park. If challenged at the entrance just tell the guard that you are going for a meal, snack or even just a stroll, show some ID (drivers license) and then head for the self-parking areas. After parking, walk up the slight incline toward the hotel, and as you reach it descend the steps down to the Boardwalk rather than going into the hotel itself.
Immediately on your right is the excellent ‘Flying Fish Café’, named after a Coney Island roller coaster, called “The Flying Turns, ” with cars emblazoned with “Flying Fish”. Here starters such as Aged Sherry-Laced Maryland She Crab Soup, " Peeky Toe" Crab Cakes (the Fish’s signature starter) or Chardonnay Steamed Mussels cost from as little as $9 and entrées range from $29 to $39 and include Herb-crusted Pacific Northwest Halibut, Oak-Grilled Maine Diver Scallops and Pasta " Frutti di Mare" (one of my personal favourites! ).
If fish is not your dish of choice (although they do also serve lamb chops and steak) then just a couple of doors down is the Mediterranean style restaurant – Spoodles. Here you will be brought a plate of diced bread and a dish of herby olive oil dip to snack on while waiting for your meal to arrive. Starters include a Greek Salad with vine-ripened tomatoes, red onions, peppers, olives, and feta cheese, and Grilled Lamb Kebabs - with chickpea salad and harissa. For the carnivores entrées include Wood-grilled Pork Chop and Oak-fired Steak Kabobs, although vegetarians are also catered for. One of the anomalies of this restaurant is that while they do not sever pizza inside, diners can actually watch chefs preparing pizzas for sale, by the slice or whole, at the takeaway window! Very handy if you just want a mid-day snack rather than a full meal!
Again if its just a mid afternoon or evening snack you are looking for then the Boardwalk Bakery, with delicious Danish and assorted pastries could be the place to stop. Next door to the Bakery is the ESPN Club, a restaurant, bar, and shop which displays jerseys, balls, plaques, and other various sports memorabilia and has over 100 monitors featuring live entertainment throughout the evening.
If you head on towards Epcot, but turn left over the bridge to wards the Beach Club Hotel you soon come to another of our favourite resting places, day or night! Beaches and Cream’, which features cones, ice cream sundaes and their signature dish the infamous " Kitchen Sink Sundae" which includes every flavour of ice cream in the place AND is served in a stainless steel kitchen sink! Enough for the whole family!
If you continue round the lake, passing over the bridge over the canal leading to Hollywood Studios, you will rejoin the Boardwalk and soon arrive at the Big River Grille and Brewing Works. This micro brewery not only serves house brewed beers and has a full bar service, but also serves excellent American style food from an extensive menu that includes Chicken Quesadillas, The Big Brew Cheeseburger, Rocket Red Barbeque Chicken and Chocolate Confusion – Oreo brownie cake sandwiching chocolate mousse with chocolate icing and chocolate chips. Not for the diet conscious!
