An authentic Irish pub in Downtown Disney seems oxymoronic, particularly when that pub seats 600 people. But if Irish grub's your thing, Raglan's is the place to go. The shepherd's pie served here is of higher quality than the usual version, prepared with beef and lamb and jazzed up with house spices. And you don't have to settle for plain fish-and-chips (though you can for $19); there's also baked salmon with smoked salmon and maple glaze; shiitake risotto; and lamb shanks braised with rosemary jus. Massive and ornate bars, imported from Ireland and more than a century old, help anchor the pub. The entertainment alone makes this place worth the visit. The house bands play nightly, and a troupe of Irish dancers performs every evening and during Rollicking Raglan Sunday Brunch. Another band plays outside for guests dining alfresco. A store called Shop for Ireland sells Irish merchandise.

Even with the price, this restaurant was worth it. Great atmosphere (very close to what I saw in Ireland) and good food. I ordered the ham... side dishes were great too. My friend had the shepard's pie, and my taste of that was excellent as well. I did not have a dessert, but Ghirardelli's was just around the bend. Friendly service too. Not all nights have live entertainment, so be sure to check the schedule.
