Great place to unwind after a day at the parks. Located near the lobby and restaurant. Cozy atmosphere and great place to people watch.

Located at the Riverside Resort, you can enjoy live entertainment on select nights with the piano player who ha been there for years. I don't think there is another resort who has anything like this. Clearly people come back year after year to see this man. The place gets absolutely hopping, but it is family entertainment. People enjoy drinks with... More

Stopped here several times - first time were brought menus but then he left and never came back. Second time they weren't serving food anymore - it was only 10 pm? Only good thing was yehaw bob.

We decided to check out Bob at the bar in our hotel after reading other reviews. It was a highlight of the trip! He is hilarious! High energy and a great mix of Disney songs and other popular music. The service here certainly leaves something to be desired; I had to go up to the waitress myself. But it's well... More

Every evening around 8 PM, the River Roost Lounge welcomes Yee Haw Bob. This is one of the best musical variety shows we have seen. There was great crowd interaction the evening we were there. We were passing by and ended up staying for two hours it was so much fun. The River Roost serves a nice selection of appetizers... More

Definitely stop into the River Roost lounge and check out the Yeeha Bob show. It was a lot of fun for all ages, great comedy and music. The lounge is a nice venue for the show, but be aware that it can get crowded. Our service was a bit lacking at times because there were too many people for the... More

The drinks are well-made and fairly priced. My gripe is with the piano player. He is obviously a very-talented man, and might be worth listening to, but I don't think he could be any louder. The room was packed and people seemed to be having a good time. But ear-splitting entertainment is not for me. If it's not for you,... More

This piano player is a Disney Legacy and is worth staying at this resort just to see him. His family friendly shows are fantastic and he has more talent in his finer than I do in whole body Disney Must do

I spent part of an evening at the River Roost Lounge after returning from Disney Hollywood Park for a beer and to listen to Yehaa Bob (or should I say be entertained by). The lounge was of decent size, but could've been even larger based on the number of people present past 10:00 at night. There is a bar with... More

We saw this show because of the 5-star reviews online and we are so glad that we did. Our party was five adults and four kids ranging from 8 months old to 10 years old, and every single one of us had an amazing time. Bob Jackson has been entertaining visitors at Disney World for 17 years. You will be... More
