On a recent stay in Orlando eight of us ate at Big River Grille on one ocassion and personally for me it was the best meal I had all holiday. The garlic mash was really good and the steak juicy and cooked to perfection. The rest of the party also thoroughly enjoyed their meals. We dined outside, which was lovely, the service was great and the restaurant was very busy. We had two children with us and they could have had one meal between them as the portions were so big! We shared chessecake for dessert as it was so big! I'm really surprised at some of the other reviews of the Big River Grille as we all had an Awesome experience !!!

Let me strait by saying the food was good, and the kids's menu was quite nice. The restaurant is small and narrow, and unfortunately the night we went, there was a large party seated nearby consisting of many loud, profane, and probably drunk patrons. The level of noise was unbearable, and the foul language was unacceptable in a family restaurant. A woman at another nearby table complained, and was told that the offending table had already been spoken to twice. We then complained, and were told the same thing, but that they would speak to them again. Shortly thereafter, the manager returned to our table and told us he'd spoken to them but if they chose not to listen, there was nothing he could do. This, frankly, was nonsense. He was unwilling to take the necessary steps to ensure the comfort of his appropriately-behaved patrons, and decided instead to cater to the boorish and obnoxious ones. We left as soon as we could, taking our children's desserts to go, as none of us could stand being there one moment longer than absolutely necessary. We were given a 20% discount off our bill to "make up for the inconvenience", but this really did not serve to ameliorate our experience in any way. We realize that a restaurant cant control who walks in the door, and that there are inconsiderate diners, but it is how the management handles it that counts. The management here clearly bungled this, and we won't be going back.

Mixed review here. The good is as follows: food was fairly priced and generally tasty, burgers, salads, chicken is what we had. No complaints there. Sit outside if you can, wish we had.

Service was mediocre and slow. Wait staff also didn't bother to contain an absurdly loud group of drunken men yelling profanities from New England (red sox hats), even after 3 separate groups complained.

So, if you catch it on a slow night,and want cheap eats, go for it. But if its busy or you want something higher end thats table service, go anywhere else on the disney boardwalk.

Have eaten here twice. The food was fantastic and the wait staff excellent. Only complaint is to better clean the tables and floors. Went two years apart and both times, the tables and floor had an odor of not being cleaned well. As though a soured cloth or soured mop had been used. Not appealing when eating in the enclosed restaurant area. We sat at the back of the restaurant. It is a convenient table service when staying at the Epcot resort area, but again, could use some extra cleaning.

We went there in the early evening for a light dinner with our two kids. We ate outside (never went inside, so we can't comment on that). The service we had was great. Beer was good. Wound up ordering appetizer -- beef nachos, that the kids loved, and chicken quesadillas, that we all enjoyed.
