Raglan Road at Disney Springs recreates an authentic Irish Pub & Restaurant experience with every detail. From the decor that was created in Ireland and shipped over to the food and drinks that come from an authentic food tradition and very talented chefs and even to the dancers that perform throughout the day, the whole location is an experience to remember.
We were recently invited to see a new Irish dance show at Raglan Road, and while we were there, the restaurant took the opportunity to serve us some of their amazing food, along with a few items that haven’t even made their way to the menu yet.
The event started with a tasting beer flight. We enjoyed the Bloomsday Pale Ale (Orange Blossom Brewing), Tri Wishes Grand Irish Red Ale (Crooked Can Brewing), and Planted Strawberry & Lime Hard Cider. Alas the coffee stout was out, but they substituted a black lager with the flight. Each was tasty and we really enjoyed the cider.
From the new menu, we tried the Wild Boar Burger (photo at top) and Seared Scallop Gnocchi. The burger had a light blue cheese that was just the right amount of flavor for a tasty burger. This will potentially be served as three sliders as a sharable. The scallop had delicious little chunks of pork belly with it and the gnocchi were like little potato pillows of goodness. Both were favorite tastes of the night and will make a great addition to the menu.
For dessert we tried a flight of different options from the menu. The chocolate kiss was really intense chocolate concoction. The Lemon meringue pie and the bread and butter puddings were the table’s favorite and the mini-sinful trifle was a fresh contrast to the others.
Other items were ordered from the regular menu:
We could eat those ribs all day. All day. They’re served as a starter, so you can split them among your party, but you’ll want them all to yourself, trust me.
Known for its beer-battered fish and chips, seasonal farm-to-fork specialties and the freshest cold-water seafood flown in regularly, Raglan Road also offers a menu of gluten-free dishes. The restaurant’s culinary team develops dishes with modern flair and Celtic creativity that are served for lunch, dinner and late nights, as well as during weekend brunch.
We firmly believe that Raglan Road is one of the must-visit restaurants at Walt Disney World.
