After a long day at the parks, it is the perfect place to unwind and let you inhibitions go. Entertainment is top notch and bar service is very good.

Joe, the piano player, has been behind the keys of the rocking piano for 18 years. He has it down to a science to get everyone involved. It's a lot of fun once. We went a second night and thought "seen this." I would strongly recommend this at least one time. It's a bar with food. Didn't eat anything, just... More

We love the atmosphere here. The piano player is not there every night but when he is the place is packed. The service, again, I am sorry to say is horrible. Even when it was not busy our server would either take our order and disappear or never even take our order. We tried to tell someone about the service... More

We went into the River Roost Lounge while we waited for a table at Boatwright's Dining Hall. They had great drink selections at what we thought were very reasonable prices for Disney World (about $10 per drink). Bartenders were kind, friendly, and efficient! Drinks were delicious. Atmosphere was lovely!

Great service and well appointed - this is bar we wish we had at Port Orleans French Quarter. Not that it was difficult to get over to River Roost. It wasn't. We found it to be a great place to have a cocktail before dinner at Boatwright's.

The bar has a good selection of beer and is a comfy place to chill for an hour before dinner while the kids are in the arcade. Yeehaa Bob's performance in the evening is not to be missed, there really was something to make everyone in the crowd laugh, tap their feet, or get up and dance.
