Fish On! Disney's Wonderful & Unique Venues for Seafood

Walt Disney World never ceases to surprise its guests. Let's face it: where else but would you find a highly-recommended sushi bar inside a bowling alley? Now that's Disney magic. In fact, you'll find multiple venues for Japanese fare on this list. Tokyo Dining, not surprisingly, is located in the Japan Pavilion of the EPCOT World Showcase and serves splendid views of Illuminations: Reflections of Earth from its balcony. Kimonos at the Walt Disney World Swan Hotel, serves karaoke instead. You can get creative sushi over at the California Grill, as well, though many of its proponents prefer their top-shelf seafood seared to perfection instead. The Flying Fish Cafe is a longtime favorite on Disney's BoardWalk (it should be noted they make a great steak, too) but on-the-go diners can enjoy a faster, more casual bite at the Magic Kingdom's Columbia Harbor House. Its lobster roll is much-lauded. Still too high-brow? And if fast-casual fried delights are the order of the day, check out EPCOT's Yorkshire County Fish Shop for quick-service fish and chips and vinegar. A Bass Ale or Harp Lager make a nice accompaniment on those hot Orlando days. Special nights out call for splurge options, the Boathouse, Narcoossee's or Todd English's BlueZoo are fine choices.
