Reservations Open July 29 for Re-Imagined Flying Fish on Disney’s BoardWalk at Walt Disney World Resort

After a major re-imagining, reservations open July 29 for dates beginning August 3 and beyond at Flying Fish on Disney’s BoardWalk. The entire interior, including the on-stage kitchen, has been beautifully redesigned, along with an all-new menu crafted by Chef Tim Majoras, a veteran of the Flying Fish kitchen.

The seafood-centric menu features entirely sustainable fish and shellfish, and includes Chef Majoras’ creations such as corn-crusted wild Gulf shrimp, wild Alaskan king salmon and plancha-seared Hokkaido scallops. For carnivores, there’s Wagyu filet mignon, Kurobuta pork belly and bison striploin. General manager and sommelier Stig Jacobsen has crafted a new wine list with nearly 80 selections by the glass.

Flying Fish Menu


  • We’re visiting in January 2017 – any chance the Chef’s Table will be available?

  • The Flying Fish has been my family’s #1 restaurant pick for years. While I am sure I’ll be able to find something on the new menu, I have to say that I am extremely disappointed that the potato-wrapped red snapper is no longer listed. Unfortunately it likely means that my family will not be returning to the restaurant nearly as frequently. The dish was a favorite of ours, and was specifically mentioned as returning to the menu after the refurbishment according to this very blog, so it was a very sad surprise to see that does not appear to be the case. I hope this is reconsidered at some point – I’m all for refreshing a menu, but there was no reason to eliminate that dish considering its popularity.

  • Thanks for the update on my favorite restaurant of all time. Looking forward to eating here for my birthday next month, however, I am extremely disappointed to see that the BEST crab cakes I’ve ever had are missing from this menu. Also – why take away the potato wrapped snapper? This was the FF’s signature dish for many many years and a favorite for many. Please tell the team that I hope both of these dishes return to the menu in the future.

  • Where is the potato wrapped snapper? We’re told that this wonderful dish will come back!!

  • Preface: FF was our favorite restaurant on property. We have been coming to WDW 2X a year from Michigan for 25+ years. We had a wonderful thing going with Flying Fish and visited every trip.
    Sadly more has changed than the elimination of “Cafe” from the name. New “look” and now totally different disappointing/deal breaker menu. WDW, please remove FF as the name and call it what is is because it certainly is no longer Flying Fish. You have severed all ties with that beloved restaurant so finish it off, make it “Boardwalk Grill” or “Slick Fancies” but save the sanctity of what was the Flying Fish. We can live with a clean slate, this “refurb” is more than tough and just not necessary.

  • I just switched my reservations from California Grille to Flying Fish. I was so excited for it to reopen. Now I see no potato encrusted snapper?? I think I’ll be switching back!! I was so looking forward to it too.

  • We have been so excited for the reopening of Flying Fish since it had become one of our favorite restaurants on property. But after looking at the new menu, I am very disappointed that some of our favorites have not returned….and that is after we were assured when we were there in the fall that the popular tuna and snapper dinners would remain ! The dishes shown, though very fancy looking, are not appealing to my husband who would like a dinner that is satisfying and not a tasting. I may have to go just to see the new decor !

  • I gotta say, this used to be my favorite WDW restaurant, as Passholders we went there regularly and even know the staff. We’ve been waiting for it to reopen with a fresh new look and enhanced menu. But now seeing the new menu, my husband and I are pretty disappointed. It is missing our favorite dishes, the scallops over the incredible risotto (now grits? Ew!) and the NY strip! From the pictures and descriptions, seems like the dishes are lacking volume and the richness that used to characterize them. The combinations or sides in the entrees are basically poorly paired garnishes. Not sure now if we will revisit, at least not with this new menu. So very sad. 🙁

  • Yummy!! I tried making ADR on MDE on my phone and it was not available (I mean the restaurant wasn’t even listed). And it still says “closed for refurb” on the MDE website. I hope it opens up soon! Anxious to try it. I’m so excited!

    • Though it says the location is closed for refurbishment, you can still make a reservation on My Disney Experience!

  • Web site still shows refurb, but under My Disney Experience on web you can book the meal. Better yet use MyDisneyExperience app on your smart phone and the menu, with prices, is available.

  • The appetizer section of the new menu sure looks enticing! Disappointed to see that my beloved mussels dish did not make a return. That was one of my favorite dishes (possibly my absolute favorite) at Walt Disney World! Looking forward to trying the “tour” though.

    • Be assured, you will find a new favorite. 🙂

  • Well darn…they said the potato wrapped Snapper would be on the menu but it’s not

  • My mistake, the article states July 29th. Sorry about that.

  • The link stated “Flying Fish is currently closed for refurbishment. Please check back here for updates.” So I don’t think it is open for reservations. Also is there any place where prices are posted? I’d like to know general costs before deciding dining plans. The menu seems a total disappointment from the previous menu, but it may surprise.

  • Where is the potato wrapped snapper?

  • Will lunch be offered or is this just dinner?

    • Flying Fish will be open for dinner nightly.
