If you are looking for a delicious meal on the West Side of Disney Springs, you must try City Works Eatery & Pour House. This table service dining location provides a great crossover dining and bar scene where you can hang out, catch up and watch games on the many televisions that line the space. If you’d rather people watch and enjoy the Florida weather, you can ask for a seat outside instead of in the dining room.
Enjoy genuine hospitality, delicious eats, and thirst-quenching libations. The food here is best described as trendy bar food with a fresh twist. The Pour House menu offers shareable staples, sandwiches, salads, and more. Of course, plenty of Guests flock to this restaurant for the awesome craft beer menu. Beer from local breweries, great cider, and hard seltzer options, and an expansive cocktail menu will make it tough for Guests to choose just one drink. Let’s hit the highlights of the delicious menu at City Works Eatery & Pour House.
This American Sports Bar is a great choice for my family when we are searching for shareable, affordable food on vacation. With menu options ranging from $15-$35, we can leave satisfied without the cost hitting our wallets too hard. The lunch and dinner menu is divided into bar bites, shareables, tacos, soups & salads, burgers & handhelds, main courses, sides, and sweets. A kids menu is also available.
Truthfully, the shareables and bar bites are menu highlights for my family at this eatery. Nothing beats choosing a few different options to mix and match for the table. When you think beer, you probably think pretzels. Try the pretzel bites served with a beer cheese dipping sauce for $12. Speaking of cheese – cheese lovers will want to try the melty cheese curds. Also $12, these melty steamy bites are made from stringy white cheddar battered in cornmeal and served with a smoked tomato coulis. The Nashville Hot Chicken Bites and the Fried Pickles are two more yummy options on the bar bites menu.
If we are talking shareables, my hands-down favorite is the Buffalo Chicken Dip. The serving size on this dish is hefty, making this $16 menu option a bang for your buck. The dish consists of juicy pulled buffalo chicken, pungent bleu cheese cream, a house-made Giardiniera and is served with corn tortilla chips. The deliciousness of this dip, paired with the relative ease of securing a table at City Works and the awesome beer and hard seltzer menu, means an afternoon munching on this dish is a vacation must-do for my husband and me.
Dropping by this spot to indulge in Buffalo Chicken Dip and taste a beer flight is the perfect dining choice when you don’t want to go too hard dining-wise. This shareable menu item is perfect for a pair that is just a little hungry but still wants to enjoy a satisfying eat. Other sharable options worth mentioning are the Smoked Chicken Wings and the Duck Nachos. Both ringing in under $20 each, these bites go big on flavor.
The Cityworks Chopped Salad is a great choice if you want a large, fresh and delicious salad. This creation is loaded with grilled chicken, crunchy romaine, iceberg, and red-leaf lettuce. It’s garnished with hardwood-smoked bacon, juicy tomatoes, cucumbers, red onion, bleu cheese crumbles, fresh avocado, and drizzled with a sweet herb vinaigrette dressing. The Ahi Tuna Tacos are a big hit with poke-style tuna, Asian Slaw, avocado, pickled Fresno Chiles, sesame ginger vinaigrette, and black sesame seeds loaded onto a flour tortilla.
The burger menu is truly out of this world, with options like the Cityworks Burger, Smokehouse Burger, Impossible Burger, Scorpion Burger, and sandwiches like the Nashville Hot Chicken Wrap to name just a few. You can’t make a bad choice when browsing this menu, but my choice for burgers or sandwiches at City Works is always the Filet Mignon Sliders. For $22, you can enjoy an order of two sliders built with grilled filet medallions covered in caramelized onions, slathered with a horseradish cream sauce, and piled on a pretzel roll. This eat is served with your choice of fresh olive oil parsley fries or a side salad.
As a die-hard cheese fan, mac ‘n cheese is a religion- so you know I love the Smoked Cheddar Mac ‘N Cheese ($19) on this menu. The huge portion size, coupled with the richness of this dish, means you may have to share it or box some up to enjoy later at your resort. This main course menu item is loaded with grilled chicken, bacon lardons and has cavatappi pasta covered in a velvety smoked cheddar cheese sauce. Other main course menu highlights are the Smoked Ribs, Salmon, Cajun Linguine, and the Porkchop entree. Items on the Main course menu run from $19 on up to $39.
Sides you should not miss on this menu include the Grilled Corn, Spicy Maple Bacon Baked Beans, Creamed Corn, and Mashed Potatoes. Sides ring in at around $8 each. The kids’ menu features options like Cheese Pizza, Mini Cheeseburgers, Tacos, Chicken Tenders, and Mac and Cheese for $10 each.
When it comes to sweets, there are good options to choose from. I recommend the Peanut Butter Snickers Pie. This $10 dessert is super yummy with an Oreo Cookie crust, peanut butter mousse, Snickers, frothy whipped cream, caramel, and chocolate sauce.
Obviously, the expansive beer menu is a big draw to this spot. With over 60 beers on tap in addition to a hefty menu of ciders and hard seltzers, you could spend an afternoon enjoying flights and still not taste it all. My beer pick from this menu is the Orange Blossom Pilsner from Orange Blossom Brewing Company in Orlando. From the cider menu, you should try the Strawberry Lemonade Cider made at Broski Ciderworks in Pompano Beach, Florida.
Pro Tip: Because City Works Eatery & Pour House is not owned by the Walt Disney Company, you can use one of my favorite hacks to secure reservations during busy times. If you are searching for reservations on the Walt Disney World website with no success, head to the Open Table app or website and search for City Works. I’ve had success snagging a last-minute reservation via Open Table with no problem.
From heavy appetizers to enjoy with a beer flight to a three-course meal after a day of shopping, this Disney Springs spot has got you covered. Do not skip a chance to dine at City Works Eatery & Pour House!
