Love guacamole? Love fresh crab? Well, the two loves of your life are about to come together in one dish! Paddlefish is enticing us with a new addition to their menu.
You KNOW we’ve been eating our way around Disney Springs since it reopened on May 20th.
So far, we’ve eaten at Terralina Crafted Italian, D-Luxe Burger, T-Rex, Pizza Ponte, and many, many more table service and quick service restaurants. And, it’s another day, so it’s time for another Disney Springs meal! This time, we checked out the recently reopened Paddlefish to see how this seafood and steak spot is handling health and safety measures, and of course, to see how good the food is!
After a long day in the parks, sometimes lounging by the pool with some great food is the BEST way to chill out in Disney World.
And, we’re ready to relax over at Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort with TWO new menu items (awww yeaaaah!).
Shellfish or sandwich? —
the ultimate lunchtime question.
Having trouble picking which one you want to eat? No need to worry, because you can have BOTH! While we usually talk about the cupcakes and whoopie pies over at Disney’s Boardwalk, a new sandwich has slid in under the radar that will satisfy seafood and sandwich devotees alike.

Here at the DFB we are all about the seasonal eats, and our Disneyland correspondent Heather Sievers (find her over @DiningInDisney on Instagram!) found a totally delicious seasonal soup in Disneyland. Chicken Pot Pie Soup (served in a bread bowl for ultimate awesomeness) can currently be found at The Harbour Galley!
With so many new (and not-so-new, but still greatly loved) dining experiences in Disney Springs, it can be tough to decide where to make your precious Advance Dining Reservations.
So on a recent visit to Disney Springs, I checked out Paddlefish — this time in the dining room (as opposed to the top deck bar) to get an overview of some of the menu’s most popular items. And while most of it was good, some of it was great (and one item — spoiler alert! — was just bad).
Paddlefish is a brand new restaurant in an old, established building. You’ll recall that Fulton’s Crab House used to reside here, in the docked, multi-storied Empress Lily on Lake Buena Vista; and actually this spot has been a restaurant since 1977. When Paddlefish opened, guests were greeted with a combination of old and new. Neutral and trendy gray paint gave the restaurant a streamlined look, but some details of old remained, like brass railings and the fabulous sternwheel.
So what do you say? Shall we paddle in?
The first floor bar at Paddlefish is a beautiful space, with its curved, recessed ceiling, wall of windows, and various seating arrangements. Definitely a comfortable place to grab a drink or two! [Read more…]
