Disney Springs is Orlando premier shopping, dining and entertainment district which is home to more than 100 shops, 25 attractions, shows & events and more than 60 amazing dining experiences ranging from quick service to fine dining. Some of the best restaurants at Walt Disney World are located at Disney Springs.
In this article we share our list of the 10 best table-services restaurants found at Disney Springs. While there are a number of Disney “Signature Dining” restaurants on this list, there are a number of resort-casual dining experiences that make the cut.
While everyone as different tastes, especially when it comes to food, your list may vary but we built our list based on those on-site restaurants that serve high quality food in a unique and creative setting. While several of the Endless Summer favorites did not make the cut, we believe that those on our list stand above the many dining options at Disney Springs.

Narrowing the list to 10 restaurants was quite difficult and it was a toss up on a few great table-service eateries. Following are three restaurants that just missed our top 10 and deserve an honorable mention.

Along with serving traditional pastas and other Sicilian specialties, it has some of the best views in Disney Springs.

Serving American fare from burgers to spare ribs to fish, it’s a great place that has fairly reasonable prices (for a Disney Springs table-service restaurant).
