    Ate at Boatwright’s the other day and had the best cheesy grits with my short ribs. Forgot to leave my email address. The wait person said you could send it. Thanks, Anne

    What: dinner – The checks got messed up and all I remember at this meal was the cornbread. I think I had some kind of beef (prime rib?) The other entrees on my receipt were grilled pork loin, Riverside pot roast, Pork ribs and kids pasta. Appetizers included crab cakes, french onion soup and fire roasted shrimp. Desserts included a big river brownie and ice cream, and tofutti for dd.

    Approximate Price of Entrees: Free dining plan. $118.43 for 2 adult meals and 2 kids meals

    Be Sure to Try: The cornbread is a religious experience

    General tips: This place gets busy – make sure you have an ADR.

    TheMouseForLess tips: If you find a dish you like (in any Disney restaurant) ask if the chef can email you the recipe. (we got the cornbread recipe)

    Extra Comments: Try this restaurant if you’ve never been – you won’t be disappointed.

    What: Breakfast

    Approximate Price of Entrees: Banana Stuffed French Toast 7.99; Chip and Dale French Toast 4.29; Bacon and Egg 4.29; Hot Cake Combo 7.29

    Be Sure to Try: Just can’t tell you how good the Banana Stuffed French Toast is!!

    General tips: I suggest a reservation if at all possible.

    TheMouseForLess tips: Share portions if your family is willing. Mine, not so much.

    Extra Comments: I had Christmas Day reservations for breakfast this morning and had yet another run-in with the staff. They insisted I didn’t have a reservation. I walked over to the dining desk in the lobby and a very nice lady printed out my reservation for me. Took it back to show it to her, but she was in the middle of arguing with a man that his family had already been seated. He preceded to tell her that his family was over in the bar, and she pointed to a family over at a table saying “no, your family is over there.” He told the lady over and over “that is not my family.” To which she replied “yes it is, they are over there.” Of course this was not the man’s family. I think the man would know his own family! After that was cleared up. We were seated by a not so friendly staff member who seemed upset that we did indeed have a reservation. No apology was given for overlooking the reservation. Just a huffy and unfriendly seating. Olga, Barbara, and a man ( I think his name was Eduardo), need to retake the Disney classes on courtesy and friendliness to guests. Never argue with a guest about the members of their own family. Or better yet, never argue with a guest period! Also apologizing when a mistake is made goes a long way.

    What: Breakfast – Breakfast Calabash, Biscuits with Sausage Gravy, Banana Stuffed French Toast, Coffee for two, OJ

    Approximate Price of Entrees: $27

    Be Sure to Try: All of it was excellent but the banana stuffed French toast, with strawberry-banana sauce was out of this world delicious!!

    General tips: I suggest PS for this…we didn’t and ended up waiting about 30 minutes for a table, but the wait was well worth it!

    Dollarless tips: The portions are HUGE…of course we ordered three things and shared it just between two of us and there was plenty left of all three for another person, maybe two. I hated leaving any of the french toast! You easily could order a couple things from the menu and share among a group.

    Extra Comments: he orange juice was wonderful here…not sure if it’s different from other locations or even what kind it is but it was yummy.

    I was hesitant to have the strawberry-banana sauce on my french toast, but I’m so glad I did…it helped cut the sweetness a bit…

    Excellent dining experience over all!
