Raglan Road is an Irish themed restaurant in the Disney Springs area (formerly known as Downtown Disney). The place has both pros and cons. First, the place can hold over 700 people and often has a line to get a table. This results in what can only be described as a "dynamic" atmosphere. This is not a place for a quiet dinner. The place also has a rather large bar and while the beer selection is somewhat limited, there should be something for everyone. I had a flight of Irish beers (brewed at the site of Ireland's oldest brewery site (Smithwick's?). It consisted of an IPA, a red ale, a stout and a lager. They were all decent enough. The food was pretty good and the service excellent. Being Disney expect a lot of kids (they have live music as well as Irish dancers who pull kids on stage). The prices are not too bad, particularly by Disney standards. If the weather is decent they have a nice outdoor bar. Overall, this is a nice place to stop and grab a quick one (or two) if you happen to be wandering about Disney Springs.

Went here once while vacationing in the area. This place is huge. It is on a Disney property, and the lines reflect that. Do not even think about eating there without reservations. Good craft beer selection, fun decorations & staff.

Best bar on Disney property, and one of the best beer lists (which doesn't say much, but still its not bad). But if you're coming here, its for the atmosphere. A very comfortable place to relax with outstanding live Irish music every night. Watch out for the Irish step-dancers, you might just fall in love.

V: Irish setting with live band and Irish tap dancers. Very entertaining but I could see where some patrons would consider the place too loud.

Q: Quality was excellent. Server brought us a sample of a smoothie they serve which was awesome. We were looking for something more filling so we ordered meals. Bread brought to table was great with a delicious dip of evoo and a stout reduction. Meals were superb and desert would make consider moving in.

S: Server was very knowledgable and made some excellent recommendations that we followed. Service could not have been better.

S: Selection was great. A variety of Irish food and beer. Beer selection I thought was really good, about 10 beers on tap, 4 Irish crafts, 4 Irish imports and and a couple American crafts. Several craft bottles available as well.

F: Probably the best part of this place. The server told us about the traditional Irish roast and shepards pie, so we gave them a shot. The were both excellent. The bread pudding desert was the best I've had.

My family and I have been to several of the resturants in Disney Springs and this was by far the best. It was pricy but so is everything else around there. At least at this place you leave full, satisfied and entertained.

Stopped in on a visit recently for dinner. Fun atmosphere and decent food with surprisingly reasonable prices for being in Disney. A few decent selections like Two Hearted and Hopsecutioner. Seems like the best spot to stop for craft if in downtown Disney. The atmosphere was a bit much and so loud there was literally no possible way to make a visit social time. Just a bit ridiculous. Would get a much higher atmosphere if not for that. Food was solid. Worth a stop if you find yourself suffering through a Disney vacation.

I'll make this short and quick!

I'm a Disney fanatic, for sure!

Atmosphere: Cool, Irish vibe. Perfect location.

Service: About as good as it can be.

Selection: Last time we came here, they had Orlando Brewing stuff. This time: Terrapin. I'm fine with that.

Food: Great stuff. Order the nachos or the Scotch eggs.

Value: It's Downtown Disney. Enough said.

It's more of a restaurant but has a solid bar both in and out with a decent selection. It won't blow your socks off.

The plus side is that the entire area is fun. Park as far toward the west side as possible and just walk in.

There is Irish dancing in the bar from time to time and a reasonable selection of basically moderately flavored brews from stouts to ciders and a few in between.

This is a sprawling Irish pub in Downtown Disney that happens to have a decent beer selection (for Disney), this being something other than lagers. There is the usual menu and a nice assortment of Irish entertainment included. They do offer plastic "to-go" cups for your beer. Check it out, anyway.

Located in Pleasure Island in Downtown Disney. Raglan Road is certainly an American twist on the standard "American Irish pub". The lighting is bright, the booths are comfortable, there is room to walk around an one doesn't feel confined and claustrophobic.

Gone are the boring wooden booths and terrible lighting. I prefer this type of Irish pub in America, since we are in America. The website says that most of the furnishings were made in Ireland, but they had me fooled.

Beer selection was filled with the typical UK macros such as Guinness, Harp, Bass, etc. The one bright spot was a delicious IPA, but I cannot remember the brewer.

A nice little stop when walking around with the family in Downtown Disney. I did not have any food. Like everything in Disney, this place is very pricey, but what else is new. Give it a try.
