    We've never been to the Boardwalk at night so we are going there this time.
    We'd like to have a meal whilst we are there, :dine: so would you recommend anywhere? Preferably steak or fish based.
    Thank you. :wiggle:

    We've been to the BW quite often but never eaten there (apart from a gooey pastry from the bakery) I'm interested in Big River Grille & Brewing Works. Started a thread on it yesterday but no one seems to be able to help yet.

    Sorry I can't help....maybe I should have just kept quiet! :lol:

    A "must do" restaurant for us on the Boardwalk is the Flying Fish.
    You will need to make an ADR though as this is a very popular place.
    Another recommended [although a bit pricey] place to have dinner is the Blue Zoo at the Swan...or is it the Dolphin? :lol:, anyhow it`s excellent!

    Thank you! :thumbsup:

    I will show DH the menu and then, hopefully, add it to my ADR list.

    Flying Fish and NO it won't be a problem. My DW doesn't like fish either. Does Dave do fish?

    I normally prefer meat to fish Diane but I tend to make an exception at the FF as I really enjoy their signature dish which is fish cooked in a batter with a sauce.
    Having said that they also do a pretty mean New York strip steak among other non fishy dishes.

    There is that steak place in the Beach Club I think. Isafari, not a fan at all of the Big River...least favorite place at WDW. We liked ESPN zone for bar type food. We are big sports fans so that makes sense. I would just consider going into the World Showcase for a nice meal rather than the Boardwalk area. I guess Spoodles is closing right? Never ate at FF, but looks to be a nice place.

    The steak place is in the Yacht Club. Hence the name, Yachtsman Steakhouse.

    So is the general opinion that maybe it would be better to eat elsewhere, such as Yachtsman, and then just go to Boardwalk for a stroll around?

    Not at all. There are loads of places to eat in the Boardwalk area including several resorts which are situated around the lake...YC, BC and the Swan/Dolphin.
    Having said that it is nice to just stroll around the place taking in the street entertainers and watching the fireworks at Epcot, albeit from a restricted viewing spot.

    I wondered if the fireworks could be seen from there.

    Had a look at FF menu, sounds good. :thumbsup: :)

    Is Spoodles closing?

    You can view the fireworks from the bridge over the canal which takes the ferry boats from the Boardwalk resort area to Epcot.
    As I said it`s not as good a view as if you were in the park but you`ll still be able to see some of the action.
    I heard somewhere that Spoodles is closing [or has closed!], to be replaced by another eatery who`s name escapes me!
