Ate here Sept. 30. The prime rib was delicious as well as the masked potatoes and asparagus. First time that we ate here and will definitely be back. We stayed at OKW and took boats to Downtown Disney they Port Orleans Riverside. The trip was worth it and had a nice relaxing boat ride.
Pros:Loved the food.

I am a vacation club member for over 20 years and ate in just about every restaurant. I have to say tonight’s dinner was the worst dinner I ever had. I ordered chicken with a side of Mac and cheese. The chicken was good although one piece and very small. The Mac and cheese came out cold. I send it back and the second one came out very dry. My wife ordered the prime rib and it was as dry as a piece of leather. The beans and potatoes were nothing to write home about. It seemed like we were served yesterday’s left overs reheated. The waiter was very apologetic and sent the manager over. We were unapologetically offered one piece of cake for our trouble. With their track record I could imagine how dry that was. She was going to “speak” to the chef, never saw her again.
So we paid $60 for a small piece of chicken and corn bread.
Pros:The corn bread was very good and the server was very attentive and tried to accommodate us.
Cons:Lousy, dry food and no one took responsibility for the bad food.

We have stayed at Port Orleans a few times and never tried Boatrights. After reading such great reviews, we decided to give it a try. We had 8:40 reservations, on our arrival day. We weren't as hungry as we thought we would be, so we ordered a few appetizers. The food was pretty bad, my husband ordered the Colonel's Pieces and it was inedible, in fact the waitress noticed he wasn't eating it and took it off our bill. I had a salad, which lacked flavour and french onion soup that was extremely salty (and I like salty food). The kids meals were nothing special either, but at least they were edible. It was a really disappointing meal.

We ate here 5/09/13 as a last min. sit down meal. I would have to say the service was terrible. They were not very busy and the waitress took forever to take our drink order as well as bring us our drinks. My 7 year old daughter spilled her Ice tea and no one came over to the table to help clean up. I told the waitress and all she did was bring her a new drink. The floor was soaking wet to the point where we had to put our feet up off the floor.
Our food also took a very long time to come out. I actually ordered dessert to go because everything was taking so long.
That being said me and my son had the strip steak and it was very good. the corn bread was tasty as well.

We have eaten here twice. The first time we weren't impressed, but we thought we would give it another try. We ate here on New Year's Eve. We didn't have reservations, but they took us right in. It was about 5:00 pm. The food is just okay. Our server was really sweet, but it took forever for our food. We were celebrating our anniversary. Our server brought out two glasses of complimentary champagne. That was a nice touch. I think with all the dining options at WDW, you can find a better place to eat at a TS restaurant.
Cons:slow service, bland food

I love taking the boat ride from DTD to POR so we decided to try Boatwrights for the first time. We were seated quickly. I got the French onion soup and it was fabulous! Very, very good! DH got the jambalaya, but was disappointed that is was only warm. I was very excited that they served sweet tea! It was nice to try, we might go back in the future.

We have stayed at POR 3 times now and this time we really used the food court. We were on the DP. We had mugs that we used for hot cocoa or coffee in the morning. The hot cocoa is burning hot so a tip would be to add some creamer to the hot cocoa(right next to each other) and it will cool it a bit without watering it down. We found ourselves eating a lot of cheese Danish or cherry Danish for breakfast using a snack credit. We ate by the quiet pool by our room so DS could swim from 7-9 am. This worked since it was warm and my dad had to wait to take medicine before going to the parks. We had a couple late lunches here. We had some great soup too. Clam chowder and tomato bisque. Was able to use a snack credit for these as well. We tried create your own pasta with alfredo and different ingredients, the beef and blue sandwiches- a little heavy on the blue cheese and I love blue cheese, a bacon burger kids fish sandwich- needed some help with tartar sauce tomato onion, BBQ pork sandwich and lots of tuna sandwiches. and tons of carrot cake. That was probably the moistest cake there. The red velvet missed the mark. the cheesecake got a little soft while we ate. Overall it was a great dining experience.
Pros:convenient good portions

April, 2022 Trip -- We had a non-park day during our stay at POR and didn't feel like going anywhere (was spring break and VERY crowded everyone with no reservations on our last minute trip). Booked a 6pm dinner ADR at about 4pm. It had been a very long time since we had eaten here (10+ years) since it really wasn't anything special. We were really surprised. Service was very good--Manager came and did 2-3 table touches during our meal. My wife got the salmon and I tried the all you can enjoy platter. We were both really happy with our food. The brisket would have been better at Polite Pig but was very good....salmon portion and taste very good too.
