The Vibe and Decor
Three Bridges restaurant at Coronado Springs Resort is literally a restaurant that sits above the lake at Coronado Springs and has three bridges leading to it. It has opened up pathways for resort guests to easily get from one side of the resort to the other while also adding a unique dining experience for dinner. Being able to look over and see the water and amazing views while you’re eating was really neat, and definitely a different feel from all the other Disney restaurants we’ve been to.
It’s a bar and grill, and all the seating is outside. There are ceiling fans throughout to help keep it as cool as possible. We happened to go on a nice night, so we loved it, but on a rainy evening, they do have shades they can put down for the main bar area to help keep the rain out. There are also heaters in the ceiling for any chillier nights they have. The Imagineers thought of everything, it seems.
The whole vibe of the restaurant is relaxed, and it never got super noisy as the sound dissipates nicely outside. There are lanterns hanging and sitting all over, and all of the seating has cushions which we greatly appreciated. There are two fake fire places, and a tv in the bar to watch sports.
We found hidden Mickeys in the pattern on our table as well as one hiding in the ceiling by itself. The whole theming blends perfectly with Gran Destino Tower as we’re sure the Imagineers planned. It’s classy but relaxed, and we definitely plan on going back again.
We had the lamb chops while we were in Chronos Club, Gran Destino Tower’s Club Level Lounge. They were amazing, especially since I love lamb, but when we were told they came from Three Bridges, we wanted to make sure we tried something new when we went.
The menu has a huge selection of drinks, both alcoholic and nonalcoholic. I got my normal Odwalla lemonade, and Robert ordered the Odwalla lemonade/tea/fruit mix. Both were really good.
We ordered the special chips and street corn dip they had for that night. They weren’t sure if they’d be bringing them to the menu permanently, but if they’re offering this special appetizer when you’re there, we recommend getting it! It was really good, and we ate the whole thing.
For our entrees, we ordered the signature burger, pulled pork tacos, and fried chicken biscuits. The burger was delicious. It’s a burger with crispy potatoes, manchego cheese, roasted garlic-lemon aioli, arugula, and a tomato. The braised pork tacos had a ton of flavor and were really good. They hand roll the tortillas at the restaurant, so they’re fresh and are served with radish and carrot slaw, salsa verde, and Cojita cheese. The crispy chicken biscuit sliders were rather tall, so we had to use a fork and knife to eat them. The flavor was amazing, but the biscuits were hard, so we just ate the chicken without the biscuit. They had hot honey, blue cheese, and creamy slaw on them. I don’t normally like blue cheese, but the combo of everything was really good.
The Mickey-shaped tart was really cute and well plated, but neither of us were big fans of it. It had a vanilla custard with compressed pineapple and tropical sorbet. The sorbet was good but different. Robert finished that off, but we left the rest of the tart.
For a relaxing evening with the family or just a few adults hanging out, this is a really nice place to go for dinner. The prices aren’t bad, and you can get plenty of food with each order. They do accept DVC and Annual Passholder discounts but are not currently taking Tables in Wonderland. This is walk up only, so you can’t make a reservation ahead of time. Because of that, it’s really only convenient for those staying at Coronado Springs Resort looking for something to eat besides the sports bar or food court in the main building. No one had to wait for a seat while we were there on a Saturday evening, but since they had their conference guests check out that morning, that may have played a factor in how busy the resort was overall. We are both looking forward to visiting this restaurant again and trying the other items on the menu.
