    Good place to go when visiting the Boardwalk and/or entering Epcot from the back entrance. Food is pricey for what you receive, but portion was good size and if not needing a large meal - portions are big enough to share, which helps with the price. They also offer a passholder 10% discount.

    Good food, got the blackened salmon, the vegetables were cold but the salmon and rice were very good. Bacon cheeseburger was very good and cooked the way we asked. Very high noise level. Good value for your money.

    It's Disney so you are going to pay more. But, always sobering to pay so much for basic meals. Burgers, nachos, quesadillas and Kraft macaroni and cheese. We enjoyed it as we are picky eaters. Still its a sometimes treat for families on a budget.

    Very limited menu and expensive for the type of place it is. VERY, VERY loud, no ambiance at all, I could have been in a cafeteria, wood tables and very uncomfortable wood chairs. Food was bland and not hot (I wouldn't say cold but it was not even close to being hot). The server was way overworked.

    We had a fantastic meal and great service but unfortunately, what was once our go-to dining location due to its reasonable pricing, great location and outstanding service has become far too expensive for future visits at this time. I truly do understand the current economic situation and these establishments do need to make a profit. However, increasing the price for a cheeseburger from $14.59 to $20, seemingly overnight, seems somewhat extreme? The chocolate cake went from $6.95 to $10. And so on. To be fair, not everything had such extreme increases but there are plenty more just as wild as the two examples above. For someone on vacation and looking for great beer, food and service along with fantastic outdoor seating when the weather is nice, I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Big River at Disney assuming you are already aware of the new prices. Hopefully things change down the road to allow them to bring back the more reasonable prices!

    No gluten free buns. Ribs were dry. Waited for thirty minutes past reservation time. Mixed drinks were watered down. The nacho chips were all broken.

    Went with our whole family after leaving Animal Kingdom at 1. It was a short walk from our hotel, Beach Club. We have eaten here in the past and have always had good food, service, and prices. Our two boys had the chicken Mac and cheese, and one added bacon to it. My wife and I both had a bite and it was very good. My wife had the fish Sandwich and it was Mahi this day and she loved it. I had the Wagyu burger and would definitely get it again. Overall we had a fantastic experience and our waiter, name started with a Y but forgot his whole name, was extremely accommodating to our requests

    The hosts were not very attentive and didn't seat us until 30 plus minutes after our reservation. It would have been longer but we accepted a high top table as the restaurant was more interested in the big tables than my group of 2 with reservations. On another note the waiter was great and the food was good quality.

    Great service from Joe. Mac & Chicken was a bit bland tasting, my wife's Waygu burger roll was hard. Pricing was somewhat reasonable considering it's Disneyworld with insane prices. Beer Cheese soup was outstanding. Best part of our meal.

    Checked in 13min early for a reservation and was told table wasn’t ready because we were there early. We got to our table shortly after our reservation. Waited almost 30min for 2 simple cocktails, had to ask waiter where they were. Then we received our appetizers and within another 5 min our main courses arrived. So for the 1st 30min we had only water and then in 10min we had everything else. Poor speed of dining. Food was ok. We have eaten there several times before with the most recent almost 4yrs ago. Very different and I wouldn’t go back.

    I ask Joe our server if they change the recipe of the Cajun pasta. His answer was…maybe they did not put enough seasoning, since you order two. He Ofer more sauce. It was spicy and not creamy as it should be. I had it before and I know something was changed. On my way out I saw a manager and ask him, did the Cajun pasta sauce was changed? He said it did change and they add some Buddha seasoning at the end. I was so dissatisfied. No where in the menu they mention this changes. No one offer me anything else, so my son and I had to eat this pasta with no flavor just last of heat. I will never go back! This was not a Cajun creamy sauce as it saids in the menu. Karla

    We were with 2 other groups and asked to be seated near one another- we were in 3 separate sections despite our sections being fairly empty (the tables were eventually filled but we were pretty much done eating). My 11 year old was told if she ordered off kids menu she couldn’t get the appetizer or dessert that came with it. She ordered the Bacon cheeseburger and asked for just a burger w/ cheese and bacon and was charged .50 more than the regular bacon cheeseburger.
