My girlfriend and I joined LuckySevens82, MrClean and futaboots here for the first Florida Area BA Gathering.

Big River has the distinction of being the only place in the Orlando area that brews its own beer. It's easy to find. It's on Disney World property, at Disney's BoardWalk. Tons of free parking. The place has the look of a brewpub: Brewing equipment visible behind windows, long bar, lots of seating. There is no smoking inside, a big plus. Though the chairs look (and feel) like they came off a Klingon attack cruiser. My fellow BAs tell me this is a chain owned by Gordon Biersch.

I got their sampler. They brew pretty mainstream beers. I'll save you the trouble of ordering the sampler. Get the ESB if they have it on cask. They also had it on tap -- cask was much, much better. Their Rocket Red Ale is also pretty good, as is their Sweet Magnolia Brown Ale.

And while our waitress had a habit of forgetting what we ordered, I am rating the service as good because the owner put the cask ESB on especially for us. Awesome!

I had their pork BBQ sandwich, which was very good, though pricey. My girlfriend had their meatloaf, which was expensive. The beer is reasonably priced, though be aware that they serve 16 oz. "pints" that look like Imperial Pint glasses but are actually smaller.

If you're looking for fresh beer while at Disney, check out Big River Grille.

Stopped in on a Saturday afternoon during the holiday season at WDW with my wife and her dad. First the place is almost easy to miss if you don't know what you are looking for. It is located among the restaurants at Disney's Boardwalk Resort (you don't need a Theme Park ticket to visit). There is both outside and inside seating. The seating and the whole atmosphere was a little hectic (which was to be expected during the holiday rush); still, it was peaceful enough that we could speak to each other in normal voices. If you don't like kids avoid the place. Our server was excellent and either had a love for beer or was awfully well trained in faking it. We ordered a couple samplers (7 3.5 oz samples) and she was able to clearly explain each beer (almost too in depth for me but I listened carefully out of courtesy). The beers were all solid - nothing outstanding but certainly way above standard domestic BMC offerings. We had burgers and turkey sandwiches and they were both very good - no one walked out hungry. I was watching what others were being served and it all looked pretty good (the nachos that a family near us got looked like it could feed 3). Considering the total tab (including a 10 buck tip) for three lunches and two samplers plus an additional pint was 68 bucks the place is cheap by Disney standards.

Places like this serve as an excellent introduction to craft beer. Nothing extreme and the Southern Flyer Light Lager should satisfy even the most hard core BL fan.

My recommendation to anyone who may be visiting EPCOT would be to venture out the back gate to this place for lunch - it's only about a 5 minute walk and certainly far superior to any beer you'll get inside the park.

A kinda modern with a lot of brushed aluminum... Cool that you can see the brewing stuffs.

Q the beer is well crafted but lacks flavor and variety...

S this is the highlight of the place, bartenders are very nice.

S same thing every time... Nothing new or exciting in the past five years.

F eh... Mostly fired, comfort food. Nothing too fancy

V very expensive, but its disney so it's expected.

I took the family to Walt Disney World for a mid -February vacation, and we visited this brewpub for a quick lunch soon after we checked int a nearby resort. I had actually visited this brewpub several years ago (1999, I think) with my wife, before we had children. Nothing had changed. Modern decor, malt aroma, moderately limited seating. The location on the boardwalk is nice, and it is a great place to people watch. The beer is typical ales, oohing adventurous. They were well made, and there was nothing wrong with them. I particularly liked the winter rotation, a brown ale. The service was fast, and, typical of Disney, very friendly. The food was somewhat better than most pub fare. I had an excellent mushroom Swiss burger. The prices are higher than. Necessary, but in line with a vacation resort/theme park. Worth a visit if you are in the area.

Snuck out of the Boardwalk resort one night last week to have a few beers at Big River. I'd been here last years ago (at least 7, if not more).

Atmosphere: Tuesday night, not too crowded. Entering through the now white awning, the bar is straight on. To the right, a small seating area and brewing equipment. To the left, more seating. Behind the bar, additional tanks. The bar area has a second, long table that passes for a second bar. Tap handles and alcohol behind the bar.

Quality: The restaurant was slowing down. So despite a few fratboy shenanigans all was quiet. That gave me the opportunity to talk with the bartender. Plus there. Six beers on tap and a full menu. Also, very busy at regular meal hours.

Service: The bartender was friendly but not overly talkative. He did, however, make some recommendations for me.

Selection: Six beers on tap. A stray firkin and handpump sat unused as well. The regular lineup included a pale ale, red, and pils with a seasonal hefe and IPA. I liked the pale and and red best and, after the sampler went with a full pint of pale ale. Several were good.

Food: A full menu is available but I didn't eat.

Pricey like everything else in an around Disney. Despite the Boardwalk being a mecca for outdoor drinking, Big River's license doesn't allow for carry-out to to go sales. Too bad there.

ATMOSPHERE
Found this place during our vacation to Disney World. It was a nice suprise to find a brewery in the resort. It is the typical brewery & grill. It has a nice full bar and a nice display of the beer tanks. It was a fun busy night with a lot of drunk people having a great time.

QUALITY
The beers were not watered down. Every make was a nice full-bodied beer. No short cuts.

SERVICE
Our waiter was very helpful and taking his time to explain the beer and even pointed out what order you should drink to maximize taste.

SELECTION
They had at least 8 beers on tap which were suprisingly almost all very good. The beer sample consist of the light lager, pilsner, pale ale, red ale, double IPA, brown ale and a stout.

FOOD
The food was good. My favorite was the Beer Cheese Soup.
YES! It is made with one of their ales. Overall the entrees and apps were pretty good compared to most breweries.

It is definitely worth visiting if you are in the area.

Visited this place with some family on our first night in Disney a couple weeks ago. Located on the boardwalk, we sat outside. Pretty nice atmosphere, people strolling by an even fireworks going off as we ate..well it is Disney after all. Waitress was nice and helpful. As far as beer goes, they brew their own and have about 5 or 6 different ones on tap at all times. I had the pale ale and the rocket red amber ale. Neither are anything to write home about but both are decent brews an I'm glad I got to try them. I would say the rocket red ale was a little better. As far as the food goes, I had the BBQ bacon cheeseburger, and I have to say that it was fantastic! I was pleasantly surprised. That burger was definitely the highlight. If you're looking for a place to eat and drink some decent craft beer in Disney then this is a pretty good place..give it a try.

This was the very last beer stop on our Disney vacation. If you ask most Disney employees where the Boardwalk is, no one seems to know. After taking the monorail to Epcot on an epic quest to find this place, we were re-routed back to the Magic Kingdom only to be told we need to take the monorail to the transportation stop and grab a bus. Five intel-gathering employee interviews later, we found the Boardwalk after about two hours or so...

Atmosphere: Located on a touristy strip along a large wooded deck, with the fairly modern interior decor, especially in the bar area. We arrived on a weekday night and got a table right away. The tables are well spaced and the atmosphere itself is cozy.

Quality: Most of the beer was average, except for the Soleil IPA, which was a diamond in the rough for sure. The food was very good.

Service: We ordered a beer sampler platter first and it came out right away. While we were enjoying this, we ordered an appetizer. Literally, the appetizer came out about two minutes from the time we order it. I kid you not! We were both stunned! The waiter then proceeded to take our order and I confronted him about how fast the appetizer just came out and that we were wanting to take our time, relax, and enjoy some beers first. From that point on, he didn't give us the time of day. Literally, he slammed the next beer I ordered down on the table in front of me. After a while, he came back to our table to finally take our order. At this point, I think he realized that his behavior was rude at best, so he tried to his best to make up for it. However, to our minds, the damage had already been done.

Selection: Most of the standard beer styles were represented, however, it would have been nice to see at least one dark beer. Perhaps a porter? The food was basically upscale bar fare.

Food: ...and that upscale bar fare was killer! The meatloaf and garlic mashed potatoes I got was great and my wife's burger was fantastic. No complaints here.

Value: I thought the value for the food was pretty good considering the high quality, however, the pints were around $7 a pop which I though was kind of steep.

Now that we know how to find this place, we'll come here again. That being said, our Disney vacation would have still been complete without it.

A: Family and I were staying at the Boardwalk so it was a nice surprise to find a brewery just moments away. Stopped in on a Tuesday evening and sat at the bar with one or two others. No beer geeks around and it was rettu turisty of course

Q: I had the Pils and IPA. Both were average to subpar. I actually did not finish my Pils.

S: Very nice, prompt

S: About 7 options here. Pretty standard and safe. Hefs to the Select IPA

F: No try

The place was charging about $7 for poor pints of beer. It is what it is.

Visited Big River in February 2011. Long lines as expected in everything Disney. We sat at an outside table which really was nice as it is right on the boardwalk. The server was excellent and very attentive. They have about 6 in house local brewed beers. I picked the Sweet Magnolia brown which was nice. The wife and I both got burgers which were very good. They are served with chips. It's a good size portion. The menu is not huge but they probably have enough of a selection to make most people happy.

The atmosphere here is really a nice selling point. If you can sit outside and enjoy the views its well worth it. We talked to some other folks sitting near us and they enjoyed the food and drinks as well. It's worth a stop on your Disney trip.

Had a 3 meeting at the Boardwalk hotel and was happy to see the only recommended beer place at Disney was right outside the hotel. They had an IPA as one of their brewers selection and I thought it was OK if uninspired. The food was average with my meatloaf being the best choice out of what our group ordered.

Tonight I was pleasantly surprised to find out that the ESPNZone had Dogfish 60-minute bottles (in addition to the BMC standards and Sierra Nevada PA). For dinner tonight we went to the Ragland Irish Bar in Downtown Disney and again I was surprised (especially after reading the dismal reviews of Disney beer) to find Bells 2 Hearted, Terrapin Hopsecutioner, Several Dogfishhead varierties and a few local Orlando Brews (an IPA and a Blonde).

I'd definately recommend Big River if you are close but if you are towards Downtown Disney, Ragland is a better bet for selection and the food is much better.

I went to the Big River Grille & Brewing Works at the Boardwalk Resort and Villas, at Walt Disney World, Lake Buena Vista, FL in November 2010. This location has a nice athosphere, where you can either eat inside, or out on the Boardwalk. I was able to get a table right away.

I had 2 great beers while here, the Rocket Red Ale, and the Oatmeal Stout (which is the new entry to the Brewer's Select list here), and had to eat there a bowl of the Beer Cheese Soup, and the Blackened Mahi Mahi sandwich, and I can tell you, they both were excellent, as well as the two beers.

The next time I return to Walt Disney World, I will visit this place again.

I visited the Big River Grille & Brewing Works at the Boardwalk Resort in Walt Disney World, Lake Buena Vista, FL in May 2010. I was really looking forward to going to this brewpub for a couple reasons: 1. It's hard to find good beer anywhere on Disney World property 2. It's hard to find good beer in the Orlando area itself, and 3. Since Disney usually doesn't promote drinking alcohol (minus Epcot's food and wine festival) with alcohol being banned entirely from Disney's most popular park the Magic Kingdom, I thought the idea of a brewpub in Disney World was progressive for them and I was excited to go there and check it out.

I thought the atmosphere of this place was phenomenal. I checked out the inside which was a bit crowded and small so we opted to sit outside at one of their few outdoor tables. It was a great choice because not only did we have beautiful weather to enjoy, but the atmosphere of the Boardwalk resort is great sow e were able to take in the ambiance of the place and people watch, see/hear the Fireworks from Epcot's Illuminations show, and hear music while we were at the brewpub. I recommend sitting outside if possible although we did have to wait awhile to get outdoor seating since it is limited and by far the more attractive option.

As far as beer selection goes, it was not great, but again good for Florida. I had the Gadzooks Pilsner and the Dunkelweiss both which were average. I preferred the Gadzooks Pilsner out of the two beers I had and my friend tried their IPA which I had a sip of and it was also decent, but nothing spectacular.

The food was good. My friend and I split a couple of appetizers which were good and reasonably priced.

One thing to take note of is that this place does not sell beer/growlers to go as their liquor license does not allow them to do so.

If you're traveling to Disney World, I would definitely recommend checking this place out.

I'm saddened to see others had good service here, ours was not horrible but way below average.

The place is nice, big windows up in the front with the bar in the back and the brewing equipment behind some glass so you can see it. It's a little small inside and so are the table tops. My wifes plate and lemonade along with my 5 small glasses and plate left the table completely covered.

The beer was all decent, I would drink more of the red ale but was happy with the small sample glasses of the other styles. The pilsner was very hoppy but lacked a crispness I look for in a good pilsner. The pale ale, light beer and witbier were all unremarkable.

My wife got the Kobe burger and I got the chicken sandwich both were good. The burger was one of the better ones I've had that was not home made and the chicken was juicy and had a nice char to it. Mashed potatoes were good, even if they were a little peppery.

Paid about $45 including tip for the two of us which is pretty reasonable. Really just wish the service had been better.

Visited several times during out stay at Dolphin resort, which is a short walk to Big River.

Atmosphere: little on the small side, once you get in. Brewing tanks immediately in front and to right of bar area. Bar seats maybe 8-10 at most. Dinning area to left of bar and seating outside when the temperature is not 90+. We opted to sit inside because of this but did sit outside at night when it was only 85+.

Quality: Had a Pils, Nut Brown Ale, Pale Ale and Hefe during my visits. All were decent with the Pale and Brown being the stand out. Did like the fact that most beers were around 5% ABV considering the Africa like heat outside.

Selection: Only 4 offerings so selection gets a ding.

Food: Had a pulled pork sandwich which was Ok, nothing to complain about.

Value: $6.50 for a pint. I put this as reasonable considering where you are. Once inside the park especially Epcot, prepare to pay upwards of $8 for a plastic glass of beer.

Overall: If we ever make it back to Disney again, this will be our go to for decent beer that is hard to find in Disney.

A Brewpub at Disney is unique. This one is nice.
The interior is very clean but not all that interesting. The food was actually better than average. The Meatloaf was Delicious!!! and a little spicy, which is something you don't always find in Disney food. my wife had the Cheese and ale soup which we both thought was yummy. Portions were quite generous which made the prices reasonable. The waitstaff were great and very knowledgeable when it came to the beers.
However both beers I had were just average (the IPA & Red). But this is a nice spot for a change from other Disney venues.

A nice little joint on the boardwalk area. Not cheap but very reasonably priced for the location right on Disney property. Food was a hair above decent, but not spectacular in any way, My companion said the sangria was pretty good...

Beer selection was limited to 4 regulars and 2 seasonal/special brews, none of which knocked my socks off. Not too crowded and service was good (this was after park closing at 9pm). The server did an fairly good job of describing the available brews.

Overall a nice retreat for younger adult travelers tired of all the screaming kids but not a must-do beer destination.

I might have like this place more if it hadn't been too cold to eat outside. The inside is loud and crowded. Low ceiling, tile floors, and too many tables for the space make for an uncomfortable atmosphere. The strange blue lighting didn't help.

They had eight different beers on-tap which was more than I expected. I had pints of the pils (pretty good) and IPA (pretty weak), plus a sip of the schwarzbier (very good).

The menu was limited and not very tempting so I got grilled chicken Ceaser salad. It was okay, but oddly enough the chicken was much colder than the lettuce. Strange. I had a small sample of the pecan chicken that was kind of bland. As with everything at Disney, it was all pretty pricey.

Our waitress Lisa was easily the best part of our experience here. Prompt, friendly, and never an empty glass. Also, despite being very busy, when she delivered my sister's sampler she took the time to give one of the most thorough descriptions of each beer I've ever heard in a brewpub. I always like to see a knowledgeable waitstaff at a brewpub, cheers to Big River for that.

Overall, this was just okay. I think I would have been much happier sitting outside though. If possible, I would suggest doing so.

Stopped in here this past week while on vacation at Disney World. It was my fourth visit to this place. I really like it here, considering the other options involve dining with people dressed as Disney characters. All of the year-round offerings were available. The menu said either the summer or winter seasonal would fill the last tap, but instead of the winter, they were offering a bock. The food was expensive, but very enjoyable. Waitstaff was attentive and friendly. If you're a BA and find yourself in Disney World, you should definitely make some time to stop in, even if it is only for a pint.

It is part of Disney's Epcot Center and is part of Disney's Boardwalk complex. There was an awning on the Boardwalk underneath which they had their portable m.d.s. Entering, there was a short wall fronting the gently undulating, aluminum-topped, "J"-shaped bar. Directly aft of the bar, and visible upon entering, were the SVs with the FVs to the right and the brew house along the right wall. There wee a couple of monitors on either side of the back bar. Plenty of high tables and chairs in the bar area with the extensive restaurant area off to the left and consisting of standard tables and chairs. Scott, our server, was very accommo-dating, especially when he saw that I was taking notes. I can understand wanting to protect the corporate image, but I rarely diss a place without extremely good reason for doing so. No reason for negativity here, except thqat it qualified as a Clean, Well-Lighted Place for Beer. Some people dig that scene, but I'm a Delilah's in CHI kind of drinker.

Mom: it's Disney World, for Christmas' sake! Why not? If it's safe enough for Mickey, it's gonna be cool with the old lady.

Beers: Southern Flyer Light Lager; Gadzooks Pilsner; Steamboat Pale Ale; Rocket Red Ale; Wowzer's Wheat (summer seasonal); Sweet Magnolia Brown Ale (winter seasonal).

A - Two distinct stories... The inside seems cramped with no real decor to speak of... The outside seating is highly recommend and provides awesome views of the Disney Board Walk area...

Q - Solid offering, both in terms of food and beverage... Not an establishment worthy of a road trip, but an excellent option if in the Disney area on vacation or business...

Ser - Very curteous... No complaints... However, I expect a tad bit more in the tourist mecca that is Disney...

Sel - Standard casual dining fair... Sandwiches... Salads... Accessible entrees... The beer choices are varied...

F - While I didn't partake in any menu items, the rest of my party did and they were all duly impressed with the cuisine... Not world class by any standards, a very pleasant casually dining experience...

V - Value is average overall, but quite reasonable when compared to other options in the tourist haven that is Disney World...

We stayed not too far from here, and as such I just had to take a walk over one afternoon. I decided to take my son for a walk along the boardwalk for lunch we stopped in here. Nice place. Very clean and looked to be well maintained. Friendly staff as we sat right down. Food was nice, quick, and well presented with a classic menu. Beer flight was decent, I have had worse though there was nothing really to write home about, it was probably the most decent selections I ad all week aside from what I purchased at knightleys the day I arrived. Considering where it is if you are here its a must stop. I wish they would be a little more creative, but this was well worth it.

We stopped in here twice during a four day visit to Disney World. It's not our idea of a great brew pub, but compared to the surrounding choices it's the "best beer joint in town". Bars in Epcot now charge $8 for a pint of Spatn, or Bass, or Carlsberg,.... Big River brews are $5.50.

The decor is stainless steel and glass. The brew house is visible through a few large windows. Four of the serving tanks can be seen from the bar. There are a dozen or so bar seats and a few leaning spots. Other than that, all tables are assigned to servers.

There were 7 taps running on our first visit. A nice porter was the seasonal at the time. By our 2nd visit two days later, it was gone. The Red (my favorite), Brown, and Pale ales are all good, but seem like toned down versions of the 'big' beers that are now prevalent elsewhere. There was a cask behind the bar, but it was not in service.

The bar staff is very friendly and accomodating. Scott was a familiar face from our last visit in 12/06. We were told that Evan is still the brewmaster, but we didn't see him this visit. Last time, he gave us a tour of the brew system as well as a pint of the pumpkin ale (on cask) he was featuring at that time. We boasted that we were among the very few people to get free beer at Disney!

Big River is a beer lovers oasis in a barren world of BMC. If you want to run into other 'beer folk' while visiting the Mouse, this is the place to be.

Been here several times, with several reviews of their beers. We were in Orlando and revisited Sat, 20 September 2008 since we were spending the day at DisneyWorld. It turns out that this was the tapping day for their Oktoberfest, so they had a Fest party going on outside, along with some slider burgers and Cordon-bleu chicken bites - both of which were somewhat oily, but very tasty. Spoke to head brewer Evan Carroll for a few minutes. This is also Big River's 15th anniversary!

The Oktoberfest beers is one of the best that they have made. Slightly smoky, nice toasty notes, and a pretty clear copper. Apparently they occasionally have a cask going on hand-pump also, but it was not going today.
