Extra points for the smell of wort as they were brewing. Didnít ask much of the help. The beers were decent and the food looked good. Disney priciness. Lots of beer styles but nothing exotic. No darks. One brown.

Went there for lunch. It is truly a pain in the butt to get to. Its inside the Disney properties in Epcot village or something like that. At least parking is free, but you need to show an ID. Pretty normal brewpub, with a large outdoor patio out front, lots of inside seating, and a large bar area. Looks nothing like the picture here, FWIW. I sat at the bar and was the only one. They had seven taps when I was there, and you could get a sampler with all of them; I forgot to check the price, but nothing outrageous. Bartender was nice and friendly, and had decent knowledge of the beers he was pouring. Food was fairly standard, nothing special. Beers ranged from Meh to actually pretty solid. I donít know if I would seek this place out, but if you are trapped in Disneyville anyway, why not?

Stopped in on 9.8.2013. 6 house taps, none were very good. Had a great sandwich though. Prices were average.

As about as good as you can get for a beer place in Disney, but not bad overall. About 6 of their own beers on tap, all fairly decent - not great but not bad. Food was pretty decent - steaks, ribs, some seafood, burgers. Service was very good by the two bartenders there.

went here twice four years ago when the espn heisman show was next door. the place is warm and california like when you walk in and is like a johnny rockets in the back. asked the guy for a sample after i had one and he gave up the smallest sample i ever saw. asked cause i wasnít impressed with the first brew, the second was good and i bought one. he seemed perterbed that i asked and then broke and offered up a hospitable smile and some history about the beers. seemed like a harried supervisor type. food was good and my wife liked the martini. very clean diner type joint with service people moving harriedly about. the place was half full.

First of all, the location- it is a convenient stop if youíre already at Disneyís Boardwalk or the Swan and Dolphin, or Hollywood Studios, otherwise itís a real pain. The look from without makes it seem huge, but the inside is relatively small. Very clean and fitting with Disney, the food is pretty typical Gordon Biersch restaurant with fewer options. For the vegetarian, not much going except a pretty tasty beer cheese soup and some apps or a salad. The beers were par for a Gordon place and there is one rotating brewerís select tap, and that one is usually the best of the bunch. Service is beer-competent and the brewer was accessible when I was there. The prices were a bit much, but it is Disney, so it is expected. Overall, I would stop in for a pint when I am in the area. If I was staying anywhere at Disney it is probably the only place to get a better-than-below-average beer as Disneyís beer selection is worse than most grocery stores.

Right on the Boardwalk for Disney World how can this be bad. We had a great time loved the food and beer was pretty decent. Not the best but when in need of a cold beer this is much better than the crap in the Epcot area.

Nice setting, out on the boardwalk, and being December rather than June, the weather was great. Server was knowledgeable about the beers, and there were six on tap; around average quality to a little better, depending on the beer. The food we had wasnít great, but the things other people ordered sure looked better. Nice time.

Nice setting on The Boardwalk looking out onto the dock. Great service as our server was attentive and pretty knowledgeable about the beer. Decent selection of styles (brown ale, pilsener, pale ale, oktoberfest, light lager and a red ale) though none of them were particularly good. Food was maybe a tiny bit better than average pubfare. Overpriced, however, that is to be expected if youíre at Disney. Not a bad place though if you donít feel like leaving Disneyís premises and want to relax with a few beers.

Yeah, it Disney, so itís gonna be a little bit overpriced, and itís gonna be a little bit artificial. What do you expect? But after 4 days of putting up with Obese people in crocs ( apparently people still wear those. I had no idea), eight year old in strollers (seriously. Make íem walk) and Florida heat, this was a godsend. There isnít much craft beer in Disney, even in Epcot, so I enjoyed this - probably more than I should have...
