Nice bar and fun entertainment

Yaha Bob was alot of fun, the drinks were good and you could order food or bring it in from the food court. The only issue was during the show there is limited seating.

The River Roost has greatly improved its beer selection over the last few years. The crowds sometimes overwhelm the service team, but still a great place to unwind after a day at the parks. And do not miss a performance by YeHaa Bob during your visit! Absolutely can't say enough about this hilarious, energetic, talented performer.

We walked over from Port Orleans French Quarter to check out the hotel and tried to get into the main restaurant, but it was booked. We decided to have some appetizers here instead, and we were VERY pleasantly surprised! The food was EXCELLENT! The N'Orleans Nachos were very good, a the Crescent City Gumbo was great. However, the Crawfish Sliders... More

More of a bar with snacks than a restaurant, but the service is second to none. You are made to feel special. Four night a week though the whole place rocks when Bob Jackson arrives to do his show. It is a must for your Disney vacation.

The Crowd loved BOB! He sings & interacts with the crowd. It was a packed house, with everyone singing & laughing. We also had visited the River Roost Lounge, while waiting for a reservation to Boattwright's Dining Hall a different day. I had a tasty raspberry lemonade with a froth on top. I would of loved to have another! My... More

Entertainment by Yehaw Bob is great fun for the entire family. He really gets the crowd going, and is a great piano player. The bar is nicely setup, with an area to relax by a fireplace, and lots of tables to chat with your friends (or make new ones). Prices are Disney-high, but at least the servers are friendly.

We went here for a late night snack and drinks. The service wasn't all that good as we had to hunt for a server to help us order. The food came out and was tasty and hit the spot. We got the N'Orleans Nachos which were yummy. We got the Abita beer flight and a Southern Hurricane. Overall we liked... More

Great atmosphere with great service and entertainment. A must see is Yahoo Bob. He is full of energy and knows how to make everyone feel like family even when we're from all parts of the world. Excellent talent and makes you feel young again.
