OpenTable has placed Disney Springs’ Raglan Road Irish Pub & Restaurant on its list of “Top 100” restaurants in America for group dining.
The just-released OpenTable Top 100 list honors restaurants in 26 states, with New York leading the pack at 20 winning restaurants. Twelve Florida restaurants in Miami, Tampa, Naples, Fla., and Orlando, including Raglan Road at Walt Disney World’s Disney Springs, made the list. According to Open Table’s announcement, “festive restaurants with energetic ambiance, warm hospitality, and crowd-pleasing menus rise to the top.”
The 100 Best Restaurants for Groups in America list is generated solely from more than 10 million verified OpenTable diner reviews collected between Oct. 1, 2016 and Sept. 29, 2017. All restaurants with a minimum “overall” score and qualifying number of reviews were included for consideration. Qualifying restaurants were then scored and sorted according to the percentage of reviews for which “great for groups” was selected as a special feature. Raglan Road’s neighbor The Boathouse was also named to the Top 100 Group Dining list.
Owned and operated by Irish partners John Cooke and Paul Nolan, Raglan Road is known for its live daily Irish music and dance entertainment, as well as its award-winning contemporary Irish cuisine. Earlier in 2017, Open Table named Raglan Road one of its Top 100 Hot Spot Restaurants in America based on its interactive dining experiences, live entertainment and appealing playlists. “Now in our 13th year, we’re delighted that our guests keep giving us high marks for a first-rate dining and entertainment experience,” said Raglan Road co-founder and partner John Cooke.
Live entertainment nightly and during weekend brunch includes Irish house band Raglan Roots Coalition, plus the Raglan Road Irish Dancers. Lunch is served 11 a.m.-3 p.m.; Dinner 3-11 p.m.; Bar menu 11 p.m.-late; Saturday and Sunday Rollicking Raglan Brunch from 10 a.m.-3 p.m. For more information visit www.raglanroad.com, and enjoy some Raglan Road Irish entertainment with these videos:
