Reservations Now Open for New Table-Service Dining at River Belle Terrace in Disneyland Park

One of the original restaurants at Disneyland park, River Belle Terrace (under a variety of names) has been serving up home-style eats and Southern hospitality for more than sixty years. On February 10, the next chapter for River Belle Terrace will begin as the restaurant reopens as a table-service location, featuring barbecue favorites, tasty sides and more.

What’s on the new menu? For starters, look for creamy pimento cheese dip with toasted bread and crispy celery, grilled and chilled shrimp with house-made BBQ cocktail sauce and lemon, and a house salad with arugula, apple, gorgonzola, dried cranberries, candied pecans and apple vinaigrette.

If you’re looking for a lighter entrée, try a salad topped with your choice of chicken, grilled shrimp, brisket or BBQ tofu. Whether you choose River Belle’s Chopped Salad with romaine lettuce, black beans, garbanzo beans, pickles, roasted corn, red bell pepper and tomatoes topped with fried onions served with a BBQ-ranch dressing or the Terrace Wedge with iceberg lettuce, tomatoes, bacon, crumbled gorgonzola, garnished with pickled red onions and buttermilk-gorgonzola dressing, you can’t go wrong.

For the main attraction, Disneyland Resort chefs were inspired by barbecue tastes from up and down the Mississippi River. Look for tasty entrees like pork spare ribs, oven-roasted barbecue chicken, barbecue tofu, sustainable fish, oven-roasted sausage links and sandwiches featuring fried chicken, beef brisket or pulled pork. Each entree includes a side of River Belle Terrace’s signature baked beans as well as a choice of tangy coleslaw, seasoned tater bites, potato salad or seasonal vegetables. Kids will love the oven-roasted chicken, sustainable fish, BBQ ribs or mac ‘n cheese, each served with seasonal vegetables and fruit.

No Southern meal is complete without dessert. Satisfy your sweet tooth with the warm maple, apple and bacon bundt cake or butterscotch pudding parfait. For a twist on a classic dessert, try the fried cheesecake.

Reservations can be made by visiting Disneyland.com/dine, or by calling 714-781-DINE (3463).

  • HI, I’d like to know if this restaurant is the parks’ way of honoring Walt’s desire for a River Town.

  • The new lunch and dinner menus sound good. It is a shame a place that was serving breakfast on opening day and is still in operation will no longer do so. Walt Disney himself frequented River Belle, under a different name. Many families have a tradition of eating breakfast there. At least some of the menu items are still being offered, but the location is more important.

  • Thank goodness for Rancho del Zocalo! I was worried about where I was going to get my Steamboat breakfast! Now if I could only find a place in DCA that serves pancakes…

  • This breaks my heart the most of all the recent changes! My all-time favorite place and time there was breakfast outside at the River Belle. That to me was Disneyland. Now it’s gone.

  • Thank you for adding another vegetarian option to the park. NOW if you would just bring back Fried Green Tomato Sandwiches at “The Hungry Bear”, I’d be a happy camper.

    • Hi Deborah, If you were a fan of the sandwich at Hungry Bear Restaurant, a new Fried Green Tomato Sandwich is now available at Cafe Orleans in New Orleans Square.

  • So happy to hear Tofu will be an option. I hope there will be a side that is vegan friendly so my family will finally have another place to eat.

  • Hooray BBQ tofu, beans, salad — thanks for having plant based foods! As for breakfast option, Rancho Zocalo will now have breakfast options similar to Riverbelle.

  • Will they be updating the menu soon? The one on the RBT link is the old breakfast menu.

  • Now open? I booked my reservation on January 5th?

  • I noticed that the breakfast menu is disappearing. Where can park guests eat quick service breakfast without a reservation in Disneyland and California Adventure?

    • Starting today, Rancho del Zocalo Restaurante began serving a quick-service breakfast with some favorites from the old River Belle Terrace breakfast menu as well as a few Mexican-inspired breakfast items.

  • Sounds great. Looking forward to trying out this location.

  • Coming in March and can’t wait to try!! Looks so good. When will menu prices be posted?

    • Hi Sharon, the Disneyland.com page will be updated soon.

  • This looks promising. Especially after losing Big Thunder Ranch. Thanks for including tofu in your BBQ offerings for us vegetarians!
