Three Bridges Bar & Grill Disney World Dining Review

Three Bridges Bar & Grill Disney World Dining Review three-bridges-hero

Three Bridges Bar & Grill has been a not-so-hidden gem of Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort. You can’t miss it sitting out in the middle of Lago Dorado, where three bridges connect at Villa del Lago. The resort is influenced by Spanish, Mexican, and Southwestern United States cultures and it’s translated onto the menu to an extent. You will surely find something desirable whether you’re heading out to the relaxing spot for drinks and appetizers or a heartier entree.

Three Bridges Bar & Grill opens daily at 4:30 pm, which isn’t fantastic. Rix Sports Bar & Grill and El Mercado de Coronado are open for breakfast and lunch, so there are other options if you’re dining earlier in the day. However, Three Bridges Bar & Grill would benefit by opening a few hours earlier for lunch. On the plus side, it stays open until 12:00 am, so it’s a great late-night spot after being at the parks all day. The restaurant also has mobile ordering so you can place your order ahead of time and take it back to your room.

Let’s look at what we had to eat during our recent visit to Three Bridges Bar & Grill!

Roasted Corn Dip – $12.00

Ingredients: Roasted Corn, Smoked Tomato-“Aïoli”, “Parmesan”, Tajín, Tortilla Chips (Plant-Based)

Three Bridges Bar & Grill Disney World Dining Review three-bridges-bar-and-grill-2-1

The Roasted Corn Dip was originally a secret menu item that was eventually added to the official menu for a very good reason – it’s delicious. The corn dip is reminiscent of Mexican Street Corn (Esquites) and is served with just enough tortilla chips. The aïoli binds the dip together without letting the dip become too heavy, and the Tajín adds an extra punch of lime and chili. This appetizer is perfect for two so if you have a larger party, either order a second or grab another sharable.

House-made Guacamole – $12.00

Ingredients: Tortilla Chips and Tajín (Plant-based)

Three Bridges Bar & Grill Disney World Dining Review three-bridges-bar-and-grill-3

It would be a crime to have a restaurant inspired by Mexico and the Southwest United States and not have guacamole on the menu. This is a decent take on the dip. Although it says house-made on the menu, the creamy texture and the acidic aftertaste make it similar to bagged guacamole. It is possible that they squeeze lime in the guacamole and hit it with more citrus from the Tajín and that explains the flavor. It’s good, but it’s not on the level of table-side guacamole or a more elevated take on the dip at other Mexican restaurants at Walt Disney World.

Fried Chicken Bao Buns – $14.00

Ingredients: Lime Mayo, Sweet-and-Spicy Gochujang Sauce, ‘Kimchi’ Pickles, Radish

Three Bridges Bar & Grill Disney World Dining Review three-bridges-bar-and-grill-4

These bao buns don’t make a lot of sense on this menu, but they earned a rightful spot. It may be a bit pricy for two bao buns, but there is a hearty and crispy piece of chicken on each bao bun with the perfect balance of sweet and spicy. The pickles add a nice change in texture and sourness and the lime mayo adds a hit of acidity. The bao buns were soft and fluffy and some of the better made buns at Walt Disney World.

Plancha-seared Mahi Mahi and Shrimp – $26.00

Ingredients: Basmati Rice, Bok Choy, Thai Red Coconut-Curry Sauce, Mint

Three Bridges Bar & Grill Disney World Dining Review three-bridges-bar-and-grill-5

This dish is tied with the Steak Frites as the most expensive entree on the menu but there is a quality that comes with the price. While delicious, the fish was served well done and lost a bit of its flakiness. A highlight of the dish was the hidden bok choy which was pleasantly seared and the curry sauce adds a kick that the spice-adverse might not enjoy. The three shrimp on the dish ended up being enough considering the portion of fish was fair along with filling rice.

Poke Bowl with Marinated Tuna – $23.00

Ingredients: Basmati Rice, Coconut Milk-Lime Sauce, Vegetable Melee, Sriracha “Aïoli”, Grilled Pineapple

Three Bridges Bar & Grill Disney World Dining Review three-bridges-bar-and-grill-7

This is another confusing dish on this menu but it is still a good entree choice. The presentation on this dish was lovely with a heaping portion of the sriracha aïoli drizzled on top. The grilled pineapple didn’t overpower the savoriness of the dish and added a level of lightness. The basmati rice was the perfect choice for starch and the portion size was large when added all together.

Three Bridges Signature Burger – $22

Ingredients: Bacon Marmalade, Sun-dried Tomato Jam, Smoked Gouda Queso, Crispy Vegetables, and Arugula served with Smoked Paprika Fries

Three Bridges Bar & Grill Disney World Dining Review three-bridges-bar-and-grill-6

The new Three Bridges Signature Burger debuted last fall and sent the old signature burger with crispy potatoes, Manchego cheese, roasted garlic-lemon aïoli, arugula, and tomato packing. Is the new one as good as the old one? No, but it’s still one of the best Walt Disney World hamburgers you’ll find. The thick, seasoned beef patty is cooked however you’d prefer and the chef nailed the requested medium temperature. The bacon marmalade and sun-dried tomato jam battle each other a bit over sweetness but ultimately the bacon marmalade still brings a smoky, salty profile to justify its inclusion. The gouda queso is the ultimate complementing cheese to the sweet and salty flavors of the burger. Nothing has changed with the smoked paprika fries which are fries topped with smoked paprika and served with an aïoli and they are the perfect side for this massive burger.

Tres Leches – $10.00

Ingredients: Pineapple, Three Milks

Three Bridges Bar & Grill Disney World Dining Review three-bridges-bar-and-grill-9

Tres Leches Cake is a magical dessert and while this isn’t the best on property, it is a different take on the dish that justifies its existence. This Tres Leches is served in a rocks glass with a layer of cake and cream on the bottom, then pineapple filling, then a layer of mostly cream, and a small dollop of pineapple filling on top. The pineapple filling tasted similar to what you’d expect at an ice cream shop when getting pineapple and it did rise to the top as the predominant flavor. There wasn’t nearly enough cake on the bottom compared to the three milks but it still worked as a pineapple twist on a classic dessert versus an authentic recreation.

Warm Churros – $10.00

Ingredients: Espelette Sugar, Spiced Chocolate Sauce, Tequila Caramel

Three Bridges Bar & Grill Disney World Dining Review three-bridges-bar-and-grill-8

Churros and Disney go hand in hand and these were some of the best you’ll find in Walt Disney World. The churros are served delightfully warm and not overcooked to the point that they are dry but not undercooked with a batter texture. The are soft and fluffy and doused in sugar and served with a spiced chocolate sauce, tequila caramel, and a mango chamoy. The caramel sauce was the best of the sauces but these churros didn’t need any help.

Estacional (Seasonal) Sangria – $15.00 for glass or $40 for pitcher

Three Bridges Bar & Grill Disney World Dining Review three-bridges-bar-and-grill-1

Three Bridges is known for sangria and they offer a flight which gives you a sampling of the sparkling, white, rosé, and red sangrias on the menu. They also offer a seasonal sangria which isn’t part of the flight and it’s currently a stone fruit white sangria with the specific flavor profile being apricot. It was light and extremely refreshing without being overly sweet. The only downside of ordering the pitcher is the ice really waters down the drink on the hottest Florida days.

Berry-Mint Smash – $5.99

Ingredients: Strawberry, Blackberry, Lime, Mint, Soda Water

Three Bridges Bar & Grill Disney World Dining Review three-bridges-bar-and-grill-10

The Berry-Mint Splash is served with the different ingredients separated so the presentation when delivered to the table is gorgeous and you get to have a little fun mixing it at your table. The soda water overpowered the berries in this drink which was unfortunate. It was on the way there, but it didn’t quite stick the landing but is still a great option for those looking for a nojito-style drink.

Overall, Three Bridges Bar & Grill is one of the best options you can choose at Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort. The resort might not be the easiest to get to since it isn’t connected to any parks or other hotels by the Disney Skyliner, monorail, or boat transportation. However, Three Bridges Bar & Grill is worth going out of your way for thanks to delicious food, decent pricing, and a great view that just gets better during the transition from day to night.
