I've been here many times and felt I needed to rate it having just gone back this week. Great food and a terrific location (right on Disney's Boardwalk). Beer was super cold and refreshing. I had a burger and it was excellent. Staff was super friendly...hey it's Disney!! I had forgotten a couple things at he table and when I... More

Our first impression was standing at the hostess stand in front of 2 girls for 30 seconds and was finally greeted with "hi". We told them we needed a table for 2 and the hostess almost ran to the table, leaving us to look for her, then sat us at a table that was so close to 2 other tables... More

have been there twice over the weekend. Food was good and the person serving us very friendly and efficient. Reception however was very cool and unprofessional by the person in charge basically turning me away yesterday evening when I wanted to go there for a third time.

We went to Big River for lunch with a friend who was not going to Epcot, so would not want to spend money for a park entrance. Many of the nice places on the Boardwalk are closed for lunch, so we decided to give this a try. We were seated promptly at a reasonable table inside. It's a bit crowded,... More

At here twice in last few days. The first time was inside seating with a group of 14. The service was attentive and prompt. The environment however left a lot to be desired: -crowded (tables are close). -very noisy -uncomfortable - my seat was under a vent blowing down very cool air across my back. Table preparation took a long... More

We ate here on our first night at Disney. Located at the Boardwalk its a nice change from Downtown Disney. We sat outside and were quickly greeted by our server who was great. Food was good and portions are a good size, 2 of us shared the burger platter.

Went to this location during my stay for dinner one night and enjoyed the Salmon Caesar Salad. It was good, but didn't fill me up very well and I am not known as someone to eat an outrageous amount of food, but I like to know that I had dinner. Our waiter was amazing that we had and I really... More

If you are really hungry then this place will work for you. The smell of the bar-b-cue ribs is what drew me in to this restaurant. I could smell them as I walked by. The dinner was a whole slab of ribs, a pile of mashed potatoes, some green beans. I couldn't eat it all. The sauce was as good... More

The restaurant is crowded and loud. The food is ordinary...burgers, salads, chicken. The location on the other hand, is spectacular. The Disney Boardwalk provides a great stroll after any meal. As a Disney fan, it's disappointing to see the lack of effort in this restaurant's culinary experience.

Steps from our hotel, but totally underwhelming, with the burger downright frightening. I mean what's with the bones or teeth, or whatever those nasty little hard things that were present in every bite? I advised the server to notify the chef, and she merely shrugged her shoulders, questioning "grizzle?". Not grizzle, way too hard to which she responded "must be... More
