Raglan Road Opinions & INFO please.

How is Raglan Road? What should we order & the show, is it just Irish dancing? The menu is overwhelming to me. I'd like to go for the show, but I'm not sure if the food appeals to me. TIA.

We ate there for the first time two weeks ago. We had a 1:45 ADR for lunch. The atmosphere was very nice - authentic. Our server was friendly but stretched to her limits with half the place as her responsibility. So our service wasn't very good but we didn't fault her because we could see her really trying. Food was okay - nothing outstanding. The exception was the appetizers and desserts. Definitely yummy! I also liked the bread service with the Guiness/Oil dipping sauce but DH thought the sauce was too sweet. We had the Dalkey Duo and the Dumbrodie Kiss. We missed out on the show because we were there at lunch but the space looked very well laid out for all tables to enjoy the show. DH and I agreed that we'd go back at night and just do a drink/app/dessert meal.

We like it there, but also miss the show going at lunch time. I got the Scallop Forrest (un breaded... last time i got it breaded they told me i could order it that way) it was amazing. DH got a beef brisket sandwhich that he said was wonderful.

We LOVE the bread pudding there. unfortunately this past trip we were both too full to get it (i should have skipped the "chips" but they are too yummy to pass up)

DH also got a pumpkin ale that i thought was delish and i am not a beer drinker.

Here's a link to their web site. Check it out, it's very good:

http://www.raglanroad.com/

We've enjoyed our visits there, whether it's popping in for a pint while shopping at DTD, having lunch, or spending a few hours over dinner and entertainnment. Obviously we like the food; but I rarely recommend individual menu items since I have no idea what type of food appeals to someone else.

If it looks interesting, then try it. If not, there are lots of other dining options available.

I love the atmosphere here, especially if you get seated in the main/bar area where you can see the stage. We are adults only so we go at night and it's more for the drinks than the food. It's a different experience if you are seated outdoors or in one of the other rooms.

I find the food here too heavy for me so the last two times I have just ordered a side salad and a bowl of their tomato soup.

This is one of my favorite places. I ate there Oct. 2nd. The night we were there there was a clogger dancing on a table plus an Irish folk band. I love the food. I've never had a bad meal here.

I had braised beef this time


And boyfriend had the serious steak


We both had bread pudding which is so good, but no pictures of it.

And of course

We really like Raglan Road...the atmosphere, the food, and the service is generally good too. Love the beers too! My favorite is Harp. We go almost every trip we take.
A lot of the food is really good, but this last trip, I just felt like a burger, so I ordered a burger. Everything about it was nice...BUT the burger itself. The bun, cheese, tomato chutney, etc. was very good but I was looking for a nice grilled "real" kinda burger, it's what I expected from them. Instead it was very institutional, and it reminded me of the burgers from the campus cafeterias that we visited this past summer on my DS' college tour.

So...I would recommend Raglan Road, just don't order a burger.

Good Lordie dear, don't mention Harp whilst I am working

Our Ratings of Raglan Road: (7/7/2012)
. . . food price value: C
. . . food quality: C
. . . food quantity per serving: C
. . . food prep speed: C
. . . food selection: C
. . . seating quantity: B
. . . seating comfort: C
. . . eatery atmosphere: C
. . . eatery convenience: C
. . . staff friendliness: A
. . . staff attentiveness: B
. . . character interaction: n/a

NOTE: Danielle Fitzpatrick dancing and the Tuskar Rock band playing
are authentic Irish. However, the food is not. The food is unfortunately
altered versions of Irish cuisine; some any true Pub would not offer.
Bread Pudding was very tasty. The Shepard's Pie was not close to what
one might expect; the remainder of the food was tasty, but average. As
a surprise, the fish-and-chips were quite tasty and reasonably priced.
Also noted is that the room noise is too high for dining. We found the
food can be significantly improved if you do several of the whisky flights.

I kind of agree with The Rusty Scupper - it's just blah to me.

The "show" is okay - nothing I would book a dinner there just to catch, though.

It's certainly pleasant entertainment to accompany drinks and dessert (what we do now if we decide to go).

The food itself is just okay, have never been impressed by anything we've gotten but it has been decent and filling.

We enjoy the food and the "show"! It's not 5 star but then it's not meant to be and it's a typical Disneyfied restaurant!

The braised beef is tender and tasty, my son loves it. We've had the fish and chips, the pork with the colcannon potatoes (potatoes w/cabbage), chicken & mushroom pie!

I'm not a dessert person but I now order a bread pudding, all I want is just one bite, it's so good. The rest of the family polishes it off along with the chocolate kiss (can't remember what it's called)

In fact looking forward to 11/20 reservation!

Raglan Road is as close to a MUST DO as we have! We love having appetizers (the scallop forest is to die for!) then move right on to dessert ... the bread pudding! The music and dancing are great fun. We always have a good time!

Raglan Road is really good. I went for lunch, so there was no dancing or music, but the food was very good. My family was on the DxDP so we got to try three appetizers (Calamari City, Scallop Forest, ribs), three entrees (Pie in the Sky, Sod the Stew, Fish & Chips), and three desserts (Dundon's Delight, Strawberry and Apple Crumble, and the Dunbrody Kiss).

The appetizers were really good, especially the calamari and the scallops. The calamari were crispy on the outside and tender on the side. Same with the scallops, plus the scallops had a really neat presentation.

We all liked our entrees. The chicken and leek pie was pretty light, while the stew was heavier. The fish and chips were also good...crispy on the outside and flakey on the inside.

And the desserts...oh, the Dunbrody Kiss is one of my favorite desserts in WDW. It's a chocolate mousse with orange marmalade base, covered in ganche. So good!

Scallop Forest:

I thought the same thing but my DH surprised me and took me there for Mother's Day this past May. It was WONDERFUL. We had an appetizer, a cheese dip type thing that was marvelous. Their risotto was one of the best I have ever had. They also make very yummy drinks. Give it a try!
