This restaurant was one of my families favorites. On every trip the day we checked in we would go there for lunch. The food selections have become to fancy for a sports bar. We like the menus from a few years back. Very disappointing the last time we visited. Our family has probably eaten there on 8 different trips.
I don't think we will even go this trip. If only it was the way it was.
If you're a sports fan you will love this place just like I do. The arcade does keep the kids busy, and their minimal gift selections are somewhat good. The food is great, it's a good time to just relax, eat, and watch sports. I try to come here every time I visit WDW.
If you have eaten at a ESPN zone in another city then you know what you are going to get. It does have very big portions which is a plus. They also have the best deserts that my kids still talk about. I also met David Toms here when the PGA had there event. The gameroom helps keep the kids busy while waiting for a table. If you have never eaten here it is worth going. You will come out ahead if you use the meal plan.
There are no real complaints about this restaurant. It's fun and its location on the Boardwalk is great. But I just didn't find it to be anything I couldn't get outside of Disney World. Worth a try though! And I'm sure I'd go back, it's just not one I feel like I have to visit again anytime soon.
The portions are huge the layout is fantastic and the staff are friendly what more could a sports fan want :)
This is a great place to kick back and have a bite to eat and watch the game
This is a sports bar/restaurant styled like a basketball court with all the classic memorabilia and such. It is occassionally noisy, but Monday and Tuesday nights are quieter as this place usually attracts more locals than Disney guests.
A relaxed dinner in the sometimes stuffy atmosphere of the Boardwalk is a great break inbetween Jellyrolls and that one awesome cookie place whose name escapes me.
Nothing beats it for Boys' Night Out or when the big game is on and even though your vacationing, the dedicated fans - read: men - insist on watching. Try the buffalo wings.
This restaurant was exactly what I expected it to be. This isn’t a bad thing. I went there for some good “TGI Fridays” type of meal and it didn’t disappoint. The setting is sports bar and the place can get very loud. I would recommend this place for parties of four or more but couples stay clear because the drinks flow and the sports are even in the bathrooms (I didn’t want to leave). Be advised that this is about the only crowded place on all of the Boardwalk (wish this would change) with the exception of Jelly Rolls at night.
We ate at the ESPN Club one night, not knowing that there was a radio show being taped at the same time. When this happens the restaurant can get very loud so if you\'re looking for a place to have a conversation this isn\'t it. When you\'re going to watch sports though - it\'s perfect. The food was very good.
I have spent many a nights here at the club, watching my beloved white sox and other chicago teams battle it out. the food is the best 'bar' kind of food ever, and the mega big screen is great. we spent 8 hours there new years day two years ago to watch our illini play, and we had the best time. great for the sports fan.
This place has very good food. I also like it because of all the TVs :D
THIS IS YOUR LOCAL SPORTS BAR ON STEROIDS. MORE TVS',MORE NOISE AND HIGHER PRICES. GREAT FOR THE SPORTS FAN.
Wooo! Sports nirvana! Dozens of TV's showing all of the ESPN channels line the walls. There is a live sports-talk show that is broadcast which includes trivia contests for the guests. Various ESPN luminaries will show up from time to time for interviews, Q & A's, actual broadcasts, etc. The night we were there, one of the SportsCenter anchors was there taking questions from people.
ESPN Club is terrific if you like sports. If not, it's probably not the place for you. It's loud, pricey, and the food is standard sports bar fare: hamburgers, nachos, steak sandwiches, etc. Nothing special.
Personally, I love sports, so I think the ESPN Club is cool as hell.
