    This restaurant is closing as of Sept 30, 2014


    I'm disappointed as I've always had a great meal here

    We ate here only once as it was not a pleasant experience. I am not sad or surprised to see it go. Sorry that you'll miss it Johnie.

    I want Spoodles back!!

    It's at the Boardwalk, Jeff. I really like Cat Cora (celebrity chef who is owner, or at least part owner) but they just couldn't keep the front of the house working well. It really interfered with our experience, too DisneyFreak. Spoodles was great wasn't it? At least in the early years.
    Wonder what will be going there next?

    It just never seemed to get off on the right foot. I think the menu was ambitious, and certainly indicative of Cat's talents. However, for whatever reason, she just couldn't pull it off consistently here in the Orlando area. I hope she does well in her other ventures.

    This restaurant appears to be a love or hate. We loved it.

    We always had a wonderful server as well. A lively gray haired man. He was lots of fun.

    Never went... we had it on our to do list a few trips back, but remember most people having not very good experiences, with lots of waiting, slow service and bland food. So we took it off.

    We really wanted to love this restaurant, as Jon and I are both Cat Cora fans, but it just seemed to really miss the mark the two times we went. Hopefully they'll find something that works better in the space.
