Raglan Road's Rollicking Raglan Sunday Brunch Review

All Ears Team Member Linda Eckwerth enjoyed some time at Raglan Road!

I recently had the pleasure to experience Raglan Road’s new Rollicking Raglan Sunday Brunch and what a lovely experience it was! The Brunch is new and is served every Sunday from 11:00 to 4:00.

If you are thinking, oh, an all you can eat Irish brunch, this is NOT your typical brunch! Chef Kevin Dundon has taken a different approach. The basic brunch menu is a la carte. However, you may order any of the items on the menu. For a special, more family style dining experience you can pre-order the Host the Roast Brunch. Then, in addition to a delicious meal, at noon the house band Creel and the Irish Dancers take to the stage to liven things up.

The group I was with started the meal with two of the Brunch's signature drinks, an Elder Flower Champagne Cocktail and an Irish Red Eye. The champagne was light, refreshing and served with a strawberry. However, I really enjoyed the Irish Red Eye. It was a bloody Mary topped with Guinness. I am a bloody Mary and Guinness fan, so combining two of my favorite flavors was a no brainer for me. It was very tasty!

The Brunch menu prices range from $8.00 to $26.00 per entrée. I ordered Kevin’s Ham Schnitzel, a slice of ham, lightly breaded, fried to perfection with a fried egg on top. On the side there is a serving of chips (French fries). This was more than filling, but knowing we were also going to experience Host the Roast, I wanted to save room.

Our group was served the Roast Pork Loin. The presentation for the Roast is very impressive. The meal is served on a cutting board and presented at the head of the table by the Chef. One member of your party is chosen to assist the Chef with the carving and serving. The pork was served with pork crackling, cider port jus, apple sauce and apple chutney. Our sides were almond green beans, cheesy spuds, potato roasties and sweet & sour carrots.

When ordering Host the Roast, you must call by 6:00 PM on Saturday (407-938-0300) and there is a minimum charge for 6 guests. The Host the Roast ranges in price from $35.00 to $55.00 per person depending on your choice of Roast which is chicken, leg of lamb, pork loin or rib of beef.

For dessert there is a choice of Gran Marnier Fruit & Custard Trifle or Baked Strawberry & Apple Crumble. We were served the Dunbrody Kiss and Ger’s Bread and Butter Pudding.

These too are served family style.

A few observations, if you are wanting to have a quite conversation with your dining party, not going to happen. This is an Irish pub; it is noisy with talking, laughter, dancing and music. That is what makes it fun! Also, I have dined at Raglan Road three times in March. I usually find that Chefs have a tendency to over salt foods for my taste. Not so at Raglan Road. I picked up on that almost immediately. My fellow diners also commented that their food was not overly salted as well. Way to go Chef Kevin!

I can’t wait to go back and enjoy the Sunday Brunch with friends.

Kim D.:

I can't wait to experience this! I hope it isn't a limited time deal.
I understand, but am disappointed that the Host the Roast is for 6 ppl or more. We're going for our honeymoon next year (May 2014) and this would have been our choice for our first full day at Disney!

ALLEARS: You can always inquire when you arrive. Yesterday our party of 4 was offered the Host the Roast if we wanted.

Mark D.:

"This did not influence my opinion or this review."

Come on. Free food always tastes better.

AllEars: We believe in honest reporting and transparency -- hence the disclosure. Most of the time we pay for everything ourselves. In fact, we returned to Raglan Road for Brunch on our own "dime" this past Sunday and enjoyed it just as much, if not more so.

Joni:

Probably not but... Would the Roast be on the DDP?

AllEars - The Roast is not on the DDP

Dan:

I know Raglan Road honors Tables in Wonderland. Do they for the brunch selections as well (including Host the Roast)?

ALLEARS: They will honor Tables in Wonderland on Brunch Selections, I do not know for sure on the Roast. I"m thinking not, but will find out.

shari:

I cant get Disney to confirm a reservation with me for this Brunch in June. Is it for a limited time only?

Not that we know of. Call Raglan Road directly.

John:

What are the hours? Planning way ahead for my vacation but driving from Tallahassee on Sunday, September 30. If I time my drive right, I could arrive in time for brunch.
