Getting to Disney Boardwalk Inn
The easiest way to the boardwalk is to take a bus from Magic Kingdom or EPCOT and get down near Boardwalk Inn.
You can also take a boat ride from Disney’s Hollywood Studios. However, transportation will only bring you to a table inside the restaurant if you have made prior reservations. Especially in the peak season, booking the table in advance is necessary if you have decided to dine here.
Disney Boardwalk Restaurants
So, now that you know how to trace the smell of Boardwalk’s kitchen without further ado let’s plunge deep into those aromas:
One of the best Boardwalk Disney restaurants that comes under counter service restaurants is Boardwalk Deli.
The food joint was previously known by the name Boardwalk Bakery. So, does this restaurant specialize in sandwiches and baked items?
Well, that was the scenario before it transitioned to Boardwalk Deli. Since its transition, the number, and variety of food items in Boardwalk Deli’s list have considerably increased, making it a one-stop food joint for many tourists.
The grilled cheese sandwich is a must-try if you are a fan of sandwiches. You can either have tomato basil soup with it or a packet of chips.
Pastrami Reuben is another sandwich that is worth trying. If you want to avoid trying a sandwich, grab a Bagel Breakfast Sandwich at $8.99.
Salads are your friends here if you are a health-conscious person who tries to keep your diet in check even during vacations. The mixed berry salad is where you can put your hands. Another salad option on the menu is Caesar Salad with Grilled Chicken worth $11.29.
Are you looking for some sweet dessert? If yes, then key lime tart is a dish you can try! Sugar Cookie with Sprinkles will come for $3.49.
Other desserts include the 50th Celebration Cupcake, a Vanilla cupcake, birthday cake mousse, birthday sprinkles, and white chocolate whipped cream.
So, a budget-friendly place to have breakfast, lunch, or dinner is open from 7:00 am to around 11:00 pm.
If you want to visit the latest innovation in the list of Disney Boardwalk Restaurants, then you should go to Carousel Coffee. This is the newest food joint in the Disney Boardwalk location and was inaugurated in the initial days of January 2023.
It is, however, not a place for dinner. But, if you want to fancy yourself with some select pastries over a cup of coffee, then this is where you would like to go.
New Jersey Crumb Cake is one of the must-try in the café. There are some vintage Mickey and Minnie sugar cookies. The crunchy Raspberry Danish is one of the signature dishes of the newly opened café. You can also avail of a bundle of danishes or cookies to munch on while taking a walk in the Disney theme parks.
Apart from that, as the name suggests, there are various available coffee options. The specialty coffee section has Caramel Macchiato, Café Mocha, Cappuccino, Caffe Latte, Americano, Double Espresso, and Freshly Brewed Joffrey’s Coffee. Iced Coffee Hot Tea, and Cocoa are available at Carousel Coffee.
The Seasonal Specialty Offering is a privilege you might exercise in the tasting. It is a blend of Joffrey’s Coffee Cold Brew with Mocha, Milk, Cinnamon Bun Syrup, and whipped cream as a topping. It will cost you $5.99.
Carousel Coffee is open from 7:00 am to 4:00 pm. Walk in anytime to rejuvenate your energy before hopping around again.
Are you a pizza freak? If yes, then you might be critical of how the pizza from this Disney Boardwalk Restaurant tastes.
There are few options here, even compared to standard quick-service restaurants. Apart from ordering a whole pizza, you can even order it according to slices. But you only have a few options in hand.
Pizza Window is open for lunch and dinner. Cheese Pizza Slice and Slice Pepperoni Pizza are the two varieties available here.
Apart from that, you can also order a side salad. Mini Cannolis is a dessert worth trying at the end of the meal if you even plan to visit. It will cost you $4.59 and is a shell with chocolate chips and sweetened mascarpone cream as fill-ins.
The draft beer section seems brighter than the pizza section. Among the four types of draft beer available, Bud Light Lager is the least costly and the safest to try!
Bell Vue Lounge
The extensive beer options remind me of the king of the beverages among Boardwalk restaurants Disney. The crown goes to Belle Vue Lounge. Even if it used to serve breakfast previously, the entry of Boardwalk Deli and Carousel Coffee snatched its breakfast monopoly.
But, Bell Vue Lounge emerged as an optimistic shape-shifter and now offers myriad cocktail options in the evening. Located on the second floor of the Boardwalk Inn, this is a comfortable place to hang out with your favorites over a cocktail.
The non-alcoholic specialty offerings have a range of tangy beverages which might be worth trying. Pink London Spritzer combines Lyre’s Pink London Spirit, Pomegranate-Green Tea, Grapefruit Soda, Mint, and Lime. These cost around $11.00. The lowest in price are Watermelon Lemonade and Pomegranate Lemonade.
If you want to fancy a little bit, a variety of white and red wines are on the list, along with American and Scotch Whiskey variations.
Other than these regular alcoholic drinks, you can also try some of the specialty cocktails that Bell Vue Lounge has to offer.

Another stop for your favorite cocktail party is Abracadabra. Just like this word can unfurl magic. Similarly, you can enjoy a magical world after sipping Abracadabra’s exotic cocktails.

Big River Grille and Brewing Work
Last but not least, here comes the last halt of our food truck at Big River Gille and Brewing Works. This has a double function.
On the one hand, it is a microbrewery. On the other, it is also a table-service restaurant. Moreover, there is also an outdoor dining option in this restaurant.
It is an American restaurant in the list of Disney Boardwalk Restaurants and has a plethora of salads and sandwiches.
The price is not skyrocketing; most importantly, the food quality is always good. The restaurant doesn’t serve breakfast. But the lunch and dinner menus have a range of options.
Some of the must-try from this restaurant include Blackened Creole Salmon, Cilantro-Lime rice, fresh vegetables, garlic butter, green onions, and cajun juice.
You could also try some of their burgers. The Big Brew Cheeseburger is one of the signature dishes of the restaurant. It comprises a Burger grilled with Southern Flyer Light Lager, Kettle Chips, Pickles, Tomato, and Lettuce.
