Disney Springs: Raglan Road Irish Pub

We may earn money or products from the companies mentioned in this post. Please click my disclosure policy to learn more.

Disney Springs is full of so many amazing dining experiences, and Raglan Road Irish Pub is certainly one of them. Known for tasty Irish food and lively entertainment, vacationers and locals alike flock to Raglan Road.

Raglan Road Irish Pub is actually not owned and operated by Disney World. Because of this, there are a few different little things to take note of (specifically allergy friendly dining and making reservations), but as a whole, the dining experience is pretty seamless with other Disney restaurants.

This review contains all the information you need to know to decide whether you want to add Raglan Road to your list of must-dos on your Disney vacation.

Raglan Road Location

Raglan Road Irish Pub is located at Disney Springs, part of the Walt Disney World Resort. Specifically, Raglan Road is located in a section of Disney Springs known as The Landing.

If you are driving to Disney Springs, the Marketplace Lot is the closest lot. All guests also have the option of taking Disney’s bus transportation from any Disney resort or park.

Raglan Road Hours

Depending on the day of the week and the time of the day, your experience at Raglan Road will be different. Make sure you pay attention to the serving schedule for the day you plan to eat at Raglan Road Irish Pub.

  • Rollicking Raglan Brunch: Saturday and Sunday from 9:00a-3:00p (entertainment begins at 12:00p)
  • Lunch/Dinner: 11:00a-11:00p (no lunch served on Saturday or Sunday, dinner begins after brunch is over)
  • Late Night Dinner: 11:00p-1:00a

Atmosphere and Theme

I’m sure this will come as no surprise, but Raglan Road Irish Pub is in fact an Irish Pub. Just one that is larger than any actual Irish pub you will find in Ireland. Wood, gleaming metal, and stone abound to create a lively Irish based experience.

However, the main focal point of the restaurant is the stage directly in the middle. After all, this is the real reason why so many people flock to Raglan Road. You can expect fun and lively performances through your meal.

However, not all tables provide a good view of the stage. To compensate for this, small groups of performers move throughout the restaurant to provide short performances to the people who can’t see the stage. But even if you can’t see the stage well, you sure can hear the music throughout the entire space.

As I’m sure you can imagine, the atmosphere in Raglan Road is loud. If you are looking for a calm and relaxing dining experience, Raglan Road is not for you. And as I mentioned above, the restaurant is quite large, so don’t expect an intimate dining experience similar to a real Irish pub.

Outdoor Seating

There is also an outside dining area located on the patio courtyard. There is a separate wait for this section and the hostess will ask if you want to sit inside or outside. The patio has it’s own separate singer and it’s own bar. Heaters are placed around the patio on the cooler days.

The umbrellas will help protect you a little bit if it rains, but if a Florida deluge suddenly shows up, you will certainly get wet.

Raglan Road Entertainment Schedule

One of the best parts of Raglan Road is the live entertainment they offer nightly. This entertainment consists of live bands playing Irish music as well as Raglan Road’s team of Irish step dancers.

  • Main Stage: daily from 4:30 PM to 1:00 AM 
  • Patio Stage: daily from 8:00 PM to 12:30 AM
  • The Rhythms of Raglan: 4:30 PM – 9:45 PM, Monday through Sunday—and noon to 3:00 PM, Saturday and Sunday during The Rollicking Raglan Brunch
  • Live music and dance shows: 4:30 PM – 9:45 PM
  • Live bands: daily from 10:30 PM – 1:00 AM

The current musical line-up at Raglan Road is TradGad, High Road, Reel Republic, Aaron O’Grady (patio stage), and Strings N’ Things (late night).

Children are invited up on stage throughout the evening to participate in the performances and learn some traditional Irish step dancing. They will even earn a certificate as a keepsake to go along with the memories.

Raglan Road Reservations

Raglan Road is a very popular dining destination at Disney Springs. While you don’t necessarily need to rush to make your reservation 180 days in advance, I HIGHLY recommend making a reservation. This is especially true if you plan to be there on a Friday or Saturday night.

Raglan Road is a popular location for locals to spend a night out on the weekends. Because of this, you will often find a horde of people waiting outside the restaurant. Even with a reservation you’ll likely need to wait.

So, if you want to have a meal at Raglan Road, make sure you have a reservation. If you don’t know the ins and outs of Disney’s Advance Dining Reservation system, read my Disney dining reservation guide.

It is important to note that you can make reservations at Raglan Road in two ways. You can book a table through the My Disney Experience app like you do any other dining reservation at Disney, or you can book through Open Table.

Tip: If you can’t get a reservation through My Disney Experience, check Open Table. Often, Open Table will have additional availability.

Disney Springs Raglan Road Menu

The Raglan Road menu is quite extensive, and varies greatly depending on what time of day you go. So make sure you know what is served when so you don’t accidentally find yourself at a meal when they aren’t serving what you wanted.

As always, the menu can change at any time. Make sure you check out the official Raglan Road menu to double check the most updated offerings.

Let me warn you now: the Raglan Road menu is enormous. Like excessively huge. It’s great that they give so many options, but it certainly makes it hard to pick what to get.

Raglan Road Gluten Free Menu

Raglan Road is wonderful in the sense that there are a lot of gluten free options that you typically won’t be able to have (I see you, fish & chips!). However, there are some important things to note.

The main point is that Raglan Road is not owned and operated by Disney. Because of this, the overall allergy experience is a little different. I’m not saying it isn’t safe, because it is, but you just might want to pay a little extra attention to things.

Raglan Road does not have a specific allergy friendly menu, they even say so on their website. However, they encourage anyone with food allergies to speak with their server. They even go so far to say that most of their menu can be modified to make the dish safe.

There has been some debate, with different answers provided, regarding the oil filtration system at Raglan Road. They reportedly changed systems to one where there is some risk of cross contamination in the frying oil, even though they have a dedicated allergy friendly fryer. If this is a concern for you, make sure you ask your server. I had the fish and chips and was completely fine. But I’m also not sensitive to cross contamination. So just something to be aware of.

I have a separate guide all about eating gluten free at Disney World if you need to learn more.

Disney Springs Raglan Road Review

Right off the bat, I think everyone should go to Raglan Road during their Disney trip. Sure, there are so many amazing restaurants around Disney Springs. But Raglan Road is an option that gives you an experience, not just a good meal.

Raglan Road Irish Pub is a great place for families. Kids of all ages (and adults, too) love listening to the music and watching the dancers on stage. And the fact that interested children are invited up onto the stage to learn some moves and perform makes it that much more fun.

On the flip side, if you are a group of adults, the late night dining gives you the option of a more dynamic bar experience.

The entire atmosphere is lively and a whole lot of fun. When partnered with some really delicious food, it’s really a win-win. That being said, there are definitely some cons…

Expect to Wait for a Table

A major con to Raglan Road is definitely the long wait to be seated. As I mentioned earlier, even with a reservation we had to wait 30 minutes for a table on a Saturday night. It might not be so bad during the week, but keep this in mind when making your plans.

I overheard the hostess tell someone with no reservation that the wait was at least an hour and twenty minutes. The area outside of Raglan Road was full of people standing around waiting for their table.

Another potential con is the service. The first time we went as a party of 8, the service was quite slow. It took a long time to get anything accomplished. We do have a theory that was because as a party of 8 on the dining plan an 18% tip was automatically added so they didn’t have to “work” for their tip. I don’t know if that’s the case, but it’s certainly possible.

This last time, as a party of 4 on a busy night, service was faster, but a little inattentive. At one point we had to flag down ANY waitstaff to get some help because our waitress was MIA.

However, I still consider these things to be insignificant in exchange for the overall experience.

Tip: To truly avoid the wait, try to go on a weekday and/or make your reservation for much earlier in the evening. Just check the Raglan Road entertainment schedule to make sure you can still see the performers.

Raglan Road with Food Allergies

As I mentioned above, this isn’t a Disney owned and operated restaurant. While they still uphold the standards that comes with being attached to Disney, it’s not done in the same smooth way. That doesn’t mean you shouldn’t eat here, it just means you need to pay attention.

Regardless, I was never left feeling that I didn’t have options. The waitress was good about acknowledging my dietary needs and answering any questions I had. She herself was knowledgeable about my options.

Again, if you want anything that needs to be cooked in the fryer, get clarification from your server, and if necessary, the chef.

Onion Rings (Gluten Free)

gluten free onion rings at Raglan Road in Disney Springs

You’ll notice that this isn’t actually on the menu at Raglan Road. But it is on the menu as sister restaurant, Cookes of Dublin right next door. Because of my prior research, I knew that ordering the onion rings was in fact an option.

The ability to have fried onion rings (or fish ‘n chips) gluten free is one of the absolute highlights of eating at either Raglan Road or Cookes of Dublin for me.

I found the serving size to be more than enough. I’m not lying when I say this tasted just like fried onion rings, which I haven’t had in years. I was so excited to be able to have onion rings again! My husband (the gluten eater) split them with me and he liked them as well. They are that close in taste to regular onion rings.

See the dipping sauce on the dish? I never even noticed it until I edited the picture. I was so focused on the novelty of eating onion rings it completely escaped my notice. Whoops. Bad blogger. And I love dipping sauces so this is a disappointment to me!

Fish n’ Chips (Gluten Free)

Raglan Road fish n chips gluten free

In retrospect, I wish I had tried something else in the menu. But I am so rarely able to have fish n’ chips I kind of had blinders on. Not that this meal was bad, because it was delicious. My hindsight statement has more to do with the fact I could’ve gotten fish n’ chips at Cookes of Dublin for less (and it tastes the same).

I think the combo of the fried onion rings with the fish n’ chips was just too much fried goodness. I should have taken advantage of the opportunity to try something else on the menu.

All of that being said, if you really do want fish n’ chips, go for it! Especially if you eat gluten free, this is a treat. I found the gluten free batter to be flavorful and VERY crispy. Anyone who eats gluten free knows how hard it is to get things crispy.

Portion size was pretty good and the tarter sauce a good addition. I have found that the standard fish n’ chips (not allergy friendly) serving size does tend to be a little larger. Regardless of this, I ended up completely full between the onion rings and entree. Though I supposed that might have something to do with all the fried batter…

Bangin’ Bangers & Mighty Mash

Bangin' Bangers and Mighty Mash at Raglan Road Irish Pub

My husband has a love of all things meat and potatoes, especially when that meat happens to be sausage. He raved about his meal. The gravy was very onion-y, which he states was delicious. He also loved the crispiness of the skin of the sausage, giving it a good “snap”. Yes, onion-y and snap are his exact words.

All in all, he’s a huge fan of this dish and highly recommends it. If you are looking for a traditional Irish meal to go with your Irish Pub experience, the Bangin’ Bangers & Mighty Mash is a win.

Braised Be Beef

Braised Be Beef at Raglan Road

We actually ordered this back in the day before I started the blog. Even then, I was compelled to take a picture of it, and I’m sure you can see why. It’s served in a pan! I love the creative presentation of the dish.

Aside from how cool it looks, the meal is delicious as well. The sauce was very well seasoned and the dish as a whole was flavorful.

Note: I had this before I switched to a gluten free diet. Ask your server if this is safe or whether it can be altered to make it safe.

Beer Flight and Drinks

Raglan Road is an Irish pub, so of course there’s lot of beer and whisky! If you want a true idea of different beery and whiskies, you need to check out the drinks menu on the Raglan Road website, not the Disney website.

The bottom line: the drinks menu is extensive. Odds are good you can find something on there you are interested in. A great option for anyone who wants to try multiple beers or whiskies is to get a flight. There are 5 different whisky flights to choose from and 3 beer flights. One of the beer flight options allows you to choose any 4 draught beers.

And while it’s hard to see the actual scale of the fight glasses above, they are decently sized. This gives you a good sampling of each beer.

My preference is for hard cider, and that part of the menu is a little sad. Though this is often the case around Disney and beyond. Personally, I like to try ciders that I can’t easily get elsewhere. Unfortunately, that eliminated pretty much all options. I refuse to get Angry Orchard. I like Angry Orchard, but I can get that at the grocery store.

Magner’s is of course the other cider you can get at Raglan Road, and there are a couple of different flavors to try. But I ultimately went with the Kopparberg with Strawberry & Lime, the exact same drink I had a few years ago. Clearly they haven’t expanded their cider menu.

Despite all this, I really enjoyed this light and fruity cider. Ironically, the first time I ever had Kopparberg in general was in a pub in the middle of Scotland!

Kids’ Meal

Once again, my children chose standard menu items, and once again I let them take their own food pictures. They like feeling like they are part of the blog. So excuse the bluriness and interesting “framing” options.

Chicken tenders are actually my son’s favorite food, so he was in hog heaven with his meal. And my daughter could eat hamburgers every single day. In fact, she does when we are at Disney. What stands out for her are the fruit sides. As is typically at Disney, they actually give you a medley of fruit! Not just a bowl of melons with one grape. This makes my fruit loving kid very happy.

Final Thoughts on Raglan Road Irish Pub

I really do like Raglan Road a lot and highly recommend it. But like I said, just be prepared for some of the quirks involved. The potential wait is the biggest downside. I don’t remember waiting that long when we went a few years ago, but I don’t think it was a weekend AND I think it was an earlier reservation.

Looking through all of my pictures after the fact, I realized I didn’t have that many, and the quality isn’t a good as I like. And while I’m notorious for forgetting to take the pictures, this time it wasn’t me. After waiting the extra 30 minutes to be seated I was starving so my focus shifted to that. Then it was just so crowded with people coming and going everywhere that I couldn’t really stop and take pictures of the atmosphere.

While this doesn’t bother me as a whole, I think it’s an important representation of the overall atmosphere during peak times. As long as this doesn’t bother you (it didn’t really bother me), Raglan Road is a great place to dine.

However, if you are looking for a nice quiet meal, Raglan Road Irish Pub is not the restaurant for you.
