Dinner at Raglan Road Irish Pub
Raglan Road Irish Pub is one of my favorite long-time staples at Disney Springs. This table service restaurant is a rollicking good time — with live music and entertainment daily, plus amazing gluten free and dairy free food options. We go here pretty regularly, and it’s a restaurant we’re always sharing with friends who have never been before. That’s exactly what we did on this recent visit, when we met up with friends who had never been to Raglan Road before. It was the perfect way to have a great time and enjoy traditional Irish food.
One of the things I love most about Raglan Road is the live entertainment. During brunch and dinner hours, you will find live Irish bands playing.
On this visit, we were seated in the main dining area near the stage. As a warning, it can get pretty loud when the bands are playing, so if you’re not up for as much noise, I recommend asking a server to be seated in another area.
In addition to the live music, Raglan Road also features traditional Irish step dancers. It’s pretty impressive, and I never get tired of watching these entertainers show off their dancing skills.
But, for us, the food is the best part of the experience at Raglan Road. One of the things I appreciate most is that Chef Kevin Dundon and his team are extremely special diets aware — and particularly celiac disease. Ireland has an extremely high amount of people with celiac disease, so Chef Kevin’s experience in Ireland and his work with their Celiac Disease organizations really hits home when you dine here.
On this visit, I ordered the Burger ‘R’ Way made with chargrilled sirloin beef burger with bacon, tomato chutney & Dubliner cheddar. This is gluten free and can be made dairy free by omitting the cheese. The burger is served on a gluten free (and dairy free) bun and served with a side of lightly dressed coleslaw. This is always a solid burger option and nice for something simple. Unlike the tomato jam I had at Territory Lounge, this one is done right and really goes well with the burger.
Because I’ve reintroduced dairy back into my diet, I also ordered a side of their Garlic & Parmesan Truffle Chips which can be made gluten free. You can also get the burger with regular chips (aka fries) that are both gluten free and dairy free.
If a burger isn’t your speed, I always highly recommend the gluten free and dairy free Fish & Chips made in a dedicated fryer and served at Raglan Road. They are SO good!
Raglan Road Irish Pub is consistently one of the best restaurants in Disney Springs. With plenty of gluten free (and even dairy free) options to choose from and great entertainment, it’s always a winner in my book. We love going here and enjoying a meal or a brunch whenever we can.
