Friday Feast: Big River Grille Drinks and Snacks

I’m currently waiting for our room at Disney’s Boardwalk Villas to be ready.  B and I have been up since 4:oo am for our 6:30 am flight to MCO.  We’ve been on the go since we got here…breakfast at Boma and two hours at The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror 10-Miler Health & Fitness Expo (more to come on that!).  We are now exhausted and just want naps and showers.  First world problem, I know.

So we decided to head down to Big River Grille to wait.  I’ve never been here and I’m always interested in trying new beers.  Hunger is at a minimum since we put ourselves into a serious Boma coma this morning.  We also have dinner reservations at Flying Fish Cafe, so we need to save room for that.

I decided to try the Southern Flyer Light Lager because I was looking for something light and refreshing.  I also got the chips and guac, which were good.  The chips were a little run of the mill, but the guac was good and fresh.

B went with his usual sweet route.  He ordered the cheese cake and a Grey Goose & club soda…lunch of champions!  He said the cheesecake was pretty good, but the raspberry sauce was incredibly watery.  Overall, not bad.

Not sure if I’d return here for a full meal, since the menu doesn’t really appeal to me, but I did enjoy the beer.  B is seriously falling asleep at the table…I hope this room is ready soon!!  Thankfully our friends just arrived to keep us entertained…I love them 🙂

  • Hi! We used to go here with my parents for drinks and appies and it was fun! This is where I had a few of my first beers. And hey, they have really good salads except they are so huge.

  • Hope you had a nice weekend with the race! I would be interested to hear either directly from you or through a post about your experience at the Boardwalk Resort. I’m thinking of staying there for the Marathon Weekend in January. It always looks so beautiful!
