Big River Brewing ~ yay or nay?

When expect to arrive at BC at 9:30 pm on our next trip. Looking for dinner options not requiring ADR. Thought about Big River and ESPN Club...the Big River menu looks good but I don't hear much about it. Thoughts?

Otherwise Nay.

Same as other posters- it was decent, but I wouldn't go out of my way to eat there. Kids and hubby had good burgers and I had a chicken caesar salad that was tasty enough. Good for spur of the moment eats when you can't find a reservation elsewhere.

If you go, suggest eating OUTSIDE if at all possible.

Inside is rather dank and smells of hops.

Best burger I've ever had at Disney World was at Big River. I'd definitely take it over ESPN -- which is just your typical sports bar..

Add Dolphin Fountain to your possibilities. Their burgers are wonderful!

Compared to ESPN, Boardwalk Pizza, it gets a big Yes from us. We ate there 2 weeks ago after our Disney cruise. Had the grilled Meat Loaf & Cheese soup, DW had a burger, no complaints whatsoever, plus the service was excellent. Maybe just lucky compared to those who gave it a Nay.

We thought it was good, we would go there again if we were staying in the Boardwalk/Epcot area.

We also like ESPN club.
