Dinner Review: Big River Grille


During the Dole Whippies’ girls weekend at Walt Disney World we decided one night to try and grab dinner at Big River Grille & Brewing Works at Disney’s Boardwalk Inn resort hotel. An easy walk from our Yacht Club location, we walked up to the counter and were seated right away. The biggest draw to this restaurant for us was being able to sit outside on the patio. The view of Crescent Lake and ability to watch all the activity on the Boardwalk are a major draw for this restaurant. It gave us all that “we’re on vacation!” feeling, which sometimes lacks at other Disney restaurants.

On to the food!

I had the Hazlenut Crusted Chicken: Sautéed and served in sun-dried cherry sauce. Accompanied by garlic mashed potatoes and vegetables. $16.50


Tara had the Kobe Burger: A premium 8 oz. American-style Kobe beef burger is grilled to order and served with lettuce and tomato. $14.50


Shannon enjoyed the Blue Ridge Pork Sandwich: A Traditional pulled pork with Rocket Red Barbecue Sauce. $9.99


Big River Grille is also a brewery, where you can watch a brewmaster at work crafting 6 specialty beers available for purchase during your meal.

We all agreed, the food was good. But just good. While we’ve had much better meals at Walt Disney World there are two big things going for Big River Grille: 1) The atmosphere and 2) Availability. Big River Grille is a great option for those who have an open night (a “date” night perhaps!) or didn’t make dining reservations, especially those in the Boardwalk area resorts.
