Disney's BoardWalk Inn, on the boardwalk.


Big Brew cheeseburger; flame-grilled meatloaf.

Entree range

$10.50- $26 (child $7.59)


Run by a Tennessee company, Big River seems like an afterthought along the Boardwalk and competes with nearby ESPN Club for the burger-and-brew crowd. But if you're looking for handcrafted beers, this is the place--they serve five beers, including a light lager, a robust ale, and seasonal choices. None of the beers are top-notch, but they stand out as the only on-site brewery at Disney World. Big River is a good late-night dining choice.

Setting and Atmosphere

Industrial cubist murals of factories, machinist-metal and wood chairs and tables, and a midnight-blue neon river that flows along the ceiling of the restaurant set a working-class atmosphere. The place is small - it seems like the huge copper brewing tanks take up more room than that allotted to the diners. There is a handful of outside seating and service, weather permitting.
