“Not bad for Disney. Reasonable Prices. Tight Space. Great Service.”
Reviewed May 9, 2014

Had dinner at this restaurant earlier this week for a conference. The Boardwalk is a wonderful place to explore and hang out at Disney. This restaurant is one of the more reasonably priced restaurants on the Boardwalk. Service was great. Greeted with smiles at the front. Shown to table. Server approached immediately and had good service all night. Only downside is that this restaurant is small so the tables are placed fairly close together. But overall strong positive.

“Dont visit when it rains!!!!!!!”
Reviewed May 2, 2014

ropped in here during a Central Fla deluge. Really crowded, sat at the bar. Although being told tables were limited, due to weather greater was less than friendly., (it was pouring) there were numerous uncleaned tables inside, but we sat at the bar. Took forever to get service. Though staff was really friendly. Wifes Kobe burger was exceptional, house salads super fresh, blackened mahi sandwich was awful. Way too dry, wat too little seasoned, bun was crunchy it was so dry. We
eateb here many times. Bottom line....if they are not busy great, if they are swamped go toESPN Club.

“Worst service at disney”
Reviewed April 27, 2014 via mobile

We arrived at Big River on a Friday early evening and were told there was a 1.5 hour wait at which I was not surprised. The host told us we would get served at the bar if we could find a seat. Since we just wanted a light snack we did just that. We found a seat immediately and were nodded at by a server, he did not come by to take our order. After several minutes a different server came by with some menus, we never saw him again. After a longer wait a different server finally came by to take our drink and guacamole order. We looked around, half the tables were empty and there were about 7 servers just milling about. How does that justify 1.5 hour wait? We got our guacamole and it was like someone had half heartedly smooshed an avocado and didn't add anything else to it. Tasteless!! Then a group of cheerleaders came in to order something to go and were ignored by all waitstaff. I finally had to wave our server down so they could order. This is the only restaurant on disney property that has been disappointing. Won't be back.

“Great spot with good prices...for Disney!”
Reviewed April 27, 2014

Got a table outside with lake view. Service was great and food was good. Disney gets busy, so be patient. Prices weren't too bad, it is Disney so nothing is really cheap, but the value was there as the food was really good. Beers were good too.

“Noisy and Average”
Reviewed April 27, 2014

It looks grandiose on the outside but it is plain and small on the inside. Food was okay. Not bad. The blackend fish was not blackend, just fish with spice.
