If you’ve stayed at Disney’s Boardwalk recently, one thing you may have noticed is the difference in pre-COVID dining choices compared to now. While typically the Boardwalk is loaded with eateries, the space has been eerily quiet with the temporarily closures of Flying Fish, ESPN Club, Joe’s Marvelous Margaritas, Jellyrolls, Atlantic Dance Hall, and Big River Grille & Brewing Works… not to mention the permanent closure of Ample Hills Creamery. We do have exciting news however, as Big River Grille & Brewing Works has finally reopened!


You can once again enjoy the family-friendly microbrewery and restaurant with award-winning beers and fresh twists on American pub favorites. It looks like current normal operation hours are 11:00am to 10:00pm, with 11pm closure on Fridays and Saturdays.
