Boatwright's Dining Hall
Located at Disney's Port Orleans Resort - Riverside
Dinner - January 2004

After the short ten-minute drive from Disney’s Boardwalk Villas we self parked our car and made our way into the building called the Sassagoula Steamboat Company, which is the main commerce area and where Boatwirghts Dining Hall is located.

Our 8:00pm priority seating allowed us to be seated immediately into the half empty dining room. The dining room is simple in design and decorated with ship building tools and even a wooden boat, which allows it to follow the resorts overall theme . A review of the menu left us with a couple of questions for our server who offered up a rather unenthusiastic explanation of the items listed.

For appetizers we had selected the Crab Cakes and the Chicken Gumbo. I found the Crab Cakes to be a little heavy on breading and light on crab, while my dinner companion remarked that his Chicken Gumbo was tasty but thin.

While we were still eating our appetizers the wait staff appeared at our table and seemed determined to serve us the main course, but did retreat after we mentioned the obvious that we were not quite ready yet.

For our entrees we both selected the Blackened Seafood Pasta with Shrimp, Scallops and Catfish served over Linguini with Tomato Provencal Sauce. Although I cannot offer a specific complaint about this dish I do have to say that I did not enjoy it. Perhaps the combination of the distant service and the rushed atmosphere were both conspiring to sabotage the night. The end result was that I did not finish my portion of this taste of Cajun cuisine.

From the uninspired dessert menu I selected the Pecan Explosion, which was rock hard. Not quite sure if this was how a Pecan Explosion is to be served I chiseled off a couple of bites and left the remaining portion on my plate. As we left we said good bye to the hostess who was really an innocent by stander in all this and made our way back to our home resort.
