This past weekend Disney Springs’ newest restaurant, Paddlefish, opened up its doors to the public. The seafood eatery is taking over the former home of Fulton’s Crab House, a restaurant that closed back in April last year. Being fashioned after a riverboat, the housing of the dining room has a history dating all the way back to 1976 when it was called the Empress Lilly. At that point it was a part of the Lake Buena Vista Shopping Village, the area we now know as Disney Springs. In 1996, Fulton’s Crab House moved in and removed the boat’s smokestacks and paddle-wheel, which Paddlefish now has brought back.

Paddlefish is still housed inside the same three-story boat, but the look and feel of the place has completely changed.

Each dining room on the different floors of Paddlefish gives you a unique experience both in decor and atmosphere; however, what they all have in common is an incredible view of the surrounding Disney Springs area. Each floor also has its own dedicated bar, with the third floor offering one with both indoor and outdoor seating.

That outdoor third floor deck is definitely the place to be during sunset with its stunning views, comfortable lounge area, and live music. This area will also stay open until 1 a.m. for drinks and a limited selection of menu items.

During a preview of the restaurant this past Friday, we got a sneak peek at some of the yummy dishes that will be offered on the menu. Seafood is obviously the main event here, and a whole section of the first floor is dedicated just to seafood boils with plenty of options to make any shellfish lover happy.
