Minimal selection but what they had was tasty. Selections from Cigar City and Terrepin. The food was outstanding...truly one of the best sandwiches my wife & I have had. She still talks about it. James Beard Award finalist with everything fresh...hand-made sausages, artisan cheeses, fries to-die for. Service was even better. The bartender was engaging and had great recommendations. Invited us to Red Light Red Light later and bought us a beer when we arrived. Incredible! Wouldnít necessarily say this is a beer establishment but youíll find something and the food is world-class.
enjoyed dinner here during RBWG 10í Nice place. Upscale without being pretentious. Really spot on food and a great tap/cocktail selection to complement everything. The mussels and fries were one of the best Iíve had.
Short review: outstanding food thoughtfully paired with great beer choices. Longer review: appealing decor but a little fancy and stiff for me. They call it a gastropub but it mostly lacks a real pub atmosphere, more like a fine dining establishment. Food is amazing but lunch portions can be small, I left hungry. But the pork belly and deviled eggs were simply some of best things Iíve ever eaten. Put the same food and beer into a more casual pub-like setting, and Iím happy.
Classy place with an extensive gasropub menu...there was a roast day: delicious ribs and bulled pork, greens, black eyed peas. Beer list is limited but good, they have bottles sold by the glass (half price). Place was packed so ate standing up. Good place.
I thought I had already reviewed this place. After hearing great things about this place, and wanting to go for the longest time, I finally did go last April for my birthday. The place was very busy on a Friday night. It was also much bigger and louder than I expected, but still maintained a little bit of an elegant upscale vibe. The food was pretty solid, the menu offers much more than your run of the mill stuff. Youíd probably have the chance to try something here you normally would not. Good draft and bottle options. My wife got an Ommegang Hennepin on draft and I had a Swamphead IPA and Brooklyn Dark Matter. Served in the proper glassware, of course. Overall a good time and I look forward to going back.
My first visit to the Ravenous Pig was during the RBWG 2010... what a cool place!
This is a fancy place. Dim lighting, white tablecloths, dressed up servers and hostesses, the works. When you walk in there is a nice bar with many tables, and a separate room for private parties to the right (which we used). Very nice.
It could be because we were a special party, but our service was impeccable. There were waiters left and right catering to our every need, order, demand, water refill, or whatever we wanted. Really good.
The selection of beers is pretty decent considering itís just a restaurant. Though they have few taps, they are generally good beers, and they do have several bottles to choose from as well. My first beer there was, in fact, from a bottle.
The food is AWESOME. Iím from Illinois, so I was instructed to get the shrimp and grits, and they were amazing. Also, you canít leave this place without getting the fries tossed in truffle oil. SO GOOD. Wow.
The value is pretty good for what you get, I guess, but you have to know going into the meal that itís a nice place and youíre not going to get out with less than a $15 tab for food or more, especially with brews to boot.
Overall, if youíre in Orlando and have a few bucks to burn and want a great meal with some good brews, you better stop here. Awesome place!
