“Nice place for a drink”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

Hi we stayed here in May 2013 and had a couple of drinks in here at night after returning from wherever we had been. Staff were friendly and the atmosphere nice and relaxed. There are a few sofas and plenty tables and chairs. There was also a log fire but didn't feel the need for this when it was 90 degree heat.

“Make a meal on the appetizers.........”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 24, 2013

This is a customer friendly operation. The front consists of low and high top tables, well-placed to take part in Piano Bob's performances Wed. through Sunday nights. The back area is furnished with comfy chairs and sofas near a fireplace (nice ambiance, little heat).

The "lounge" is family friendly with lots of non-alcoholic libations with exotic names, along with a full bar and decent wine list for the folks.

Best of all the bar menu, featuring prime rib sliders and shrimp with grits, can easily turn into a satisfying dinner after a long park hopping day.

The lounge staff are friendly and Piano Bob is a must-see if you stay at POR.

“Skipped the wait at the restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

Great appetizers and was able to be seated immediately with my family as opposed to waiting well over an hour at the restaurant next door. We had appetizers for dinner, but they were very good and easy to make a meal out of.

“Entertainment was excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013 via mobile

After a long day at the parks with my kids felt I deserved a beer at the bar. When I entered thenRiver Roost Lounge there was some guy playing the piano in a funny looking outfit. I later found out his name was Bob.

My entire family sat there for hours watching Bob entertain the crowd. Extremely kid friendly and entertaining, one of my favorite moments of the trip.

Bob is a lounge regular, I believe he plays Wednesday night through Sunday. If you stay at the Port Orleans, make sure you visit Bob.
