    Went for my Mother-in-Law’s birthday and the vibe and ambiance was so nice. The staff was great and super attentive. Ended it with a great view of the fireworks from Epcot.

    If you have broken tables just replace them, don’t send the waitress with a pile of napkins and keep turning it to minimum the play in the table. Can’t believe Disney tolerates this at one of their resorts.

    We went to big River Grill last year and were very pleased with it. However this year we felt we were rushed once we sat down. The food was mediocre and room temperature. The chicken breast was rubbery and under cooked.

    We were seated right away. Server kept asking if we were ready to order and we kept saying no. It felt very rushed. While we were eating and talking, several large and small tables emptied as people were heading out to see the fireworks. Then the manager actually asked us to vacate the table as “we have people waiting”. There were 2 tables for 6 empty and several 2’s. And there was no one waiting at the hostess stand. Off my frequent diner list permanently.

    Had nachos, if you can call them that. I’ve had better at Taco Bell. Made with left over bag of Tostitos. A little chicken. Jalapeño pepper was good. Had fish tacos which were probably frozen. Excellent service though. Fast and courteous and very friendly

    The service was nice but overall the food was not good at all. It was microwaved food for the most part, not hot at all and taste was very bland. We ordered Chips with salsa and guacamole, the chips were definitely Tostitos chips. I would not recommend people to come with an empty stomach you will not be satisfied.

    The food was good, beer excellent, and waiter (Mike) fantastic. Why is this not a 5 star review? We had a reservation. We arrived early and were told that no, we probably could not be seated early. Fine - only restaurant in a week+ of Disney dining that couldn't, but whatever. We waited. And waited. Until we finally got seated a half hour AFTER our reservation, with the "hostess" essentially blaming us because we did not care to sit outside in the rain under an umbrella while it thundered around us. She managed to seat folks at the bar without telling us that was an option, and she held two tables for a large party that was late arriving and had to stand around for an additional 15 or so minutes finishing drinks bought from another bar, but we got no courtesy at all. It was the most un-Disney experience I've ever had and it was frankly disgusting. In Florida, if they have no shelter for outside seating beyond an umbrella, it seems the reservation management system should not include those outdoor tables. Every other restaurant we ate at had capacity regardless of the weather, maybe Big River needs some new management and customer service training?

    Best Sangria in Orlando! The food is always great, the ambiance outside is fantastic, inside is a bit loud but nice. If you are looking for casual dining with a great view that's the place.

    Disappointing overall, much the same as previous reviews. Kids Mac and cheese is Kraft Dinner. Glasses and dishes were not clean. Caesar salad was literally dripping in dressing. We ate it but it’s not a place we will go again. Disney can do far better than this.

    Food and service was very good but the restaurant needs an update. It was run down. The walls dirty and needed painting. It felt like an old dinner not a restaurant on the Disney Boardwalk.

    This place is a true "hidden gem" in a sea of tourism. It's nice to take a step away from the craziness that IS theme park life, to walk away to a nice quiet relaxed atmosphere that also just happens to be the only brewery on property. Big fan, will be back.
