Best Seafood in Orlando

Where’s the best seafood in Orlando? It’s at Paddlefish restaurant in Disney Springs at Walt Disney World!

If you’ve been to Disney Springs, you’ve seen the large paddleboat restaurant on the water. Now known as Paddlefish, it’s one of the best places to enjoy a delicious meal and great sunset views from the rooftop deck.

We recently celebrated with a media dinner at Paddlefish to enjoy all of the delicious seafood -and some seriously great cocktails!

Honestly, we didn’t know how awesome the bar on the rooftop deck was. Now, we are dreaming of returning for food, drinks and awesome views over Disney Springs and the sunset dipping beneath the horizon! (A cloudy Orlando evening didn’t allow us to catch a sunset.) Plus, there’s live entertainment on Friday and Saturday nights.
