Best Disney Springs restaurants
1. Raglan Road
Raglan Road is an Irish Pub and interestingly doesn’t feel out of place in the middle of Disney Springs. We recommend making reservations because it’s becoming one of the most popular out of all the Disney Springs restaurants.
Raglan Road is located on the edge of the landing near Morimoto and Sprinkles. The architecture and the design of Raglan Road is as if it was plucked directly out of Ireland and placed in the middle of Disney Springs.
If you’re not in the mood to eat, this is an ideal stop in your night if you just want to have a drink and enjoy the live entertainment. There are regular Irish musicians and step dancers who make appearances here. Often time performing together.
2. The Boathouse
The Boat House is famous for their surf and turf. We recommend getting the grouper, which is served over a gooey and leek fondue. The porterhouse steak and filet sliders are another popular order here. Of course, you can’t miss out on their mac and cheese and another guest favorite, shrimp and grits.
Homecomin’ is actually a little more formal than the name sounds. Offering many upscale comfort foods options in a fine dining experience. The design and atmosphere of Homecomin’ embraces a Floridian vibe mixed with parts of the south. A classic beach and bayou vibe.
The Homecomin’ restaurant offer many classics from the south.
4. Frontera Cocina
Frontera Cocina offers Mexican food. One of the only Disney Springs restaurants to do so.
One of the reasons this restaurant isn’t on many people’s food radar is because it’s a little difficult to get a reservation. And they don’t take any walk in’s
Frontera Cocina is located near the Sprinkles Cupcakes by the Springs Waterway. From outside, you wouldn’t even guess they offer amazing mexican food. Essentially, the building has the same architecture and look as all the other buildings near it. Once you step in side, you’ll be greeted with a collection of southwestern art and vibes.
The dining area welcomes you with tall ceilings displaying a beautiful mosaic mural of a sun overhead. Embracing the American Southwest (think New Mexico) the decor of the restaurant is full of oranges, yellows and blues. The atmosphere of Frontera Cocina is further enhanced with authentic clay plates to classic Mexican posters. Such a fun experience that is so different than other Disney Springs restaurants.
5. Enzo’s Hideaway
Many people don’t know about Enzo’s Hideaway. As it’s one of the least known out of all the other Disney Springs restaurants. This may be due to the fact that this restaurant is literally underground. Perhaps Disney Springs didn’t want many people to know about Enzo’s Hideaway.
Enzo’s Hideaway taps into a speakeasy theme with Italian restaurant vibes. So if you love Italian food or are on the hunt for amazingly crafted cocktails, then keep Enzo’s Hideaway on your radar.
Another perk is that Enzo’s Hideaway doesn’t require a reservation! We Nerds think this is a great find.
The food and drinks are always great. While the menu may seem pretty basic compared to other Disney Springs restaurants, they make up for it with extremely high-quality ingredients and a chill speakeasy atmosphere.
You can find Enzo’s Hideaway near the Landing, next to STK and across from Planet Hollywood.
