5 Best Eats | Homecoming Kitchen at Disney Springs Review
When the best chefs in America come together in one spot, you have Disney Springs, the ultimate dining, shopping and entertainment area of Walt Disney World. Chef Art Smith has made a home right in the middle of the action, with the newest Florida inspired restaurant overlooking the waters of Disney Springs.
Come check out the 5 Best Eats in this Homecoming Kitchen at Disney Springs Review. And walk away with a belly full of Florida goodness.
Florida Inspired Décor
You can’t miss the Florida inspiration, and I’m not even talking about the food yet.
You walk into Homecoming Kitchen and feel the essence and love for my state. It’s rustic. It’s comfortable. It’s southern. It’s flip-flop welcoming. A living shrine to everything people love about Florida agriculture, and you feel right at home. Be sure to grab a sip from the shine bar and enjoy the screened in porch area too.
Florida Inspired Cooking
And while the decor is certainly inviting, that’s not the main reason why locals and tourists alike are stopping by Disney Spring’s newest eatery. Florida inspired cooking is at the heart and soul of Chef Art Smith’s newest restaurant with over 51% of all ingredients being locally sourced. There’s a full kids menu and lots of Florida infused drinks as well. And I’ll be honest, I wasn’t shy to go for seconds and thirds.
Homemade Pimento Cheese
Part of the famous “Jasper Board” appetizer, this cheese has got me like “WOAH.” You can taste the homemade love in there.
Not going to lie. I could have eaten the entire batch by myself. Served with a side of red jalapeno jelly, it’s a southern staple appetizer to your meal.
Chicken & Biscuits
I begged for them to add these friend chicken sliders to the menu. BEGGED. Best. Biscuits. EVER. meet some of the most amazing fried chicken. The combo is sensational, rivaling that of a very well-known chain. Seriously though, get a side of the Cheddar Cheese Drop Biscuits – they’re moist, full of flavor and oh-so-good. Art’s Fabulous Fried Chicken is your bet to a southern home cooking meal. (BONUS – you get biscuits too.)
Shrimp & Grits
A Florida favorite. You cannot come to Florida and ignore a good ole heaping of shrimp and grits. Pan seared and served over perfectly cooked grits – it’s basically heaven.
Hands down, favorite of the night. I was completely stuffed and yet couldn’t resist a taste of Chef Art Smith’s famous cake. This pineapple-banana infused cake has equally amazing distribution of pineapple and banana chunks. Topped cream cheese frosting, I couldn’t think of a better way to end the night.
Relaxed. Inclusive. Home. From the wait staff to the chefs, everyone working at Homecoming Kitchen wants you to feel loved. With food straight from local Florida agriculture, made in-house fresh for you and your family, you’re family.
Homecoming Kitchen has made it’s cozy home right on the water at Disney Springs. Find Chef Art Smith’s newest restaurant Tastes are seasonal, with a little bit of Florida infused in every bite.

I love hushpuppies! This food should also be part New Orleans hospitality! That’s where I had the hushpuppies and some of the other tasty foods. But I did not have or see the shrimp and grits together like that! I love both of those foods and would love to try this dish!!
