At Port Orleans/Riverside, the main counter service dining location is aptly named The Riverside Mill Food Court. In the center of the large and open main dining area, you will find a working cotton mill wheel, that’s powered by flowing water outside the restaurant. Even though the space is very large, it can get crowed at peak times. There are usually seats available though. The large beam woodworking that adorns the area can sometimes make it difficult to see all of the seating without walking around a bit.
Food-wise, like all food courts on property, selections are plentiful, and include made to order pasta, flatbreads, salads, and the standard chicken and burger type sandwiches. Thankfully, there are a few entrees that are inspired by the New Orleans theming as well, like the Shrimp Salad Po’ Boy and Muffaletta.
The lunch and dinner menus are largely the same. However the dinner menu adds three fresh carved plates. Sliced beef, turkey or ham is usually accompanied by two additional sides (that change from day to day) and cornbread.
(*) Price ranges listed are the average cost for one main entree and one soft beverage item, unless otherwise stated. There are many combinations of appetizers, deserts and drinks that will add to your final total. Many parks also use seasonal pricing systems which result in food and beverage costs increasing at peak times. Please check with the location that you are interested in for specific pricing information.
