Online restaurant reservation service OpenTable just released its list of the 100 Best Restaurants in America for a Big Night Out, and it includes two local spots.

The Boathouse and Raglan Road Irish Pub, both in Lake Buena Vista at Disney Springs, both made it to the list. 

The Boathouse is a family-friendly (like every other place in Disney Springs) upscale seafood restaurant on the water, complete with vintage boats from the '30s, '40s and '50s docked right outside the doors. Raglan Road is an authentic Irish pub offering high-end pub food, beer and spirits, and live Celtic music and dancers.

The Big Night Out list collects information from more than 30,000 restaurants and 12 million verified diner reviews from coast to coast. “The list spotlights the restaurants that have all the ingredients for the perfect big night out — upbeat energy, innovative cocktails, robust wine lists, and, of course, outstanding food,” says Caroline Potter of OpenTable.
