Nice ambiance on the outside patio with nice views of downtown Disney. Very quick convenient ordering right from your phone. Some might complain about the price point being high, but you can't put a price on Disney Magic!

The staff was very unorganized. Made reservation and had to speak with 5 different people before they sat me at a table. Everyone was confused on where to send the customer and what table... you’d think it was their first day.

Do not like the fact that you have to use a cell phone to order and pay. My phone's camera would not read the QR code. Had to use my friends phone.

Otherwise everything was great!

From the greeting host at the ground level through every staff member that came by our table, no one showed any interest in attending to my table. No help was offered navigating the online ordering system. It took asking 3 staff members to get utensils for the table. Our appetizers arrived with the entrees, not before, and that was 30 minutes after ordering. Prior visits were great. This one visit was the opposite of great.

New feature is order from app and it is delivered to your table. Plus is you pay upfront so need to hang around when finished. The food was well prepared and tasty.

My “pot pie” was slightly warmer than luke warm. It was like when you don’t heat something in the microwave long enough. Parts of it were hot some were warm. The beers were decent, except for the watermelon ipa. That one tasted like I licked a Christmas tree.

Doing a great job spacing out tables, keeping things very clean. All of our food items were prepared with fresh ingredients. Right now there is a fantastic selection of barrel aged ales.

Good food, but very small menu choices. Blackened fish tacos were tasty but SPICY. Ballast Burger was delicious. but would like to visit again to try the beer and wine selection.

Food was great, and everyone was friendly. However, new model of ordering and paying through QR code (I 100% understand and appreciate why this must be done during the Pandemic) left us feeling like no one checked on us, appetizer was delivered with our entree, and we had already paid and tipped (20% of course, like we always do) ahead of time so once our food was dropped off we were just left alone. We had to track someone down for a box. Luckily no one needed a refill. Honestly the food was great, everyone was super friendly, but perhaps making sure to circle back around a few times throughout the meal will elevate an already great dining experience to that 100% mark. Thanks for a great meal!

You use a QRR code to order your food and have to pay for it along with the tip ahead of time which is fine until no one even checks up on you. Every time we wanted something we had to get up and go look for someone. The food was meh and they ran out of the beer we were having. This was the worst visit ever. All of our past experiences had been great.

The ordering process is extremely frustrating. You have to go to their website and place individual orders for everything you want & close out each time to get your stuff. Nobody takes your order, and paying multiple times is frustrating and ridiculous. You pretty much do half the server's job for them.

Food was so-so, definitely not worth the price tag. $21 mediocre burger, $19 mediocre chicken wrap. Beer was okay, but my boyfriend is a beer enthusiast and was super excited to try a bunch of their beers. He was disappointed with them all- says the quality went down on Ballast Point beers once they got too big.

The employees were great, and it's not their fault. The experience just wasn't worth the price tag.

My overall experience at Ballast Point was a good one. I had the soy chorizo tacos and they were very delicious. I also tried their shepherd's pie and the meat was so very tender. Their garlic fries were on point!! I dined there at noon on a Sunday and it was perfect. There wasn't a lot of people, which was great considering the times.

First of all they brought our food before our cocktails. Second, food was cold. Third, the waitress brought us the wrong choices we selected for the flights.

The food was not worth the price by far! The beer saved the meal! How you order is great during this COVID climate. Definitely will come back for the beer and the beer only.

It was an overall great experience. But it did take a little time to get used to the ordering system. Also, when we had a question it took a while to flag down a staff member. And the seasonal special entree that we had come for had sold out the day prior. So a little disappointed with that. But the food was great and staff was friendly.

Was there for a friends birthday, ordering a little confusing. We had two tables of 4 and they totally did not see that we had ordered 2 of the same thing. One of the 2 came 15 minutes later that was disappointing because everyone felt bad eating while we waited for them to correct the mistake. Then the bathrooms flooded and I think that made the wait staff a little crazy. Once the meal came it still was not correct, chicken was missing...The beer was the only thing worth going back for.
I answered yes on recommendation if you are going for beer and appetizers.

Total mobile experience - menu is mobile, ordering is mobile. Quick service. I had gone for the seasonal special and it was sold out, which was a bummer, but the Hatch Chile burger was a good consolation prize.
