Both the allergy friendly chicken and allergy friendly fish are amazing!! My husband and son both loved their meals. I got to eat the fish that was not allergy friendly and immensely enjoyed that also.

Cons:wish it had more seating at busy times

Basically everything is fried food, the food isn't bad for fried food but if you don't want average fast food-fried food go elsewhere. If you want that, it's not bad.
Pros:Decent fried food
Cons:Everything is fried, took some time to get our order.

We went there again on our last trip. The menu has gotten even smaller. The fish and chips are still good, but there were only about 5 other options. In fact there wasn't even an entree salad.
Pros:Fish and Chips
Cons:Limited food options, seating still limited and if you want an adult beverage ( even beer and wine) you have to go to the adjoining outside bar from Raglan Riad

Ate dinner there on our recent visit in October. Fish and chips were very good as was the chicken & mushroom pie my husband got.
Food came in a reasonable period of time.
Negatives are limited seating, having to go to the outside bar to get a beer or wine and the menu choices were less than those on our prior 2 trips (Nov. 2014 & 2015)
Still as long as the fish n chips are good and there is another option for my husband on the menu it will be one of our stops in DS.
Pros:Very good fish and chips
Cons:Limited seating and me u

I have wanted to go here for a long time and finally had the chance. It was very underwhelming. The fish in the fish and chips was thin and way to crunchy...more breading than fish. The chips and dip I purchased were so hot they should not have been served. I really could hardly eat them even after some time. The food takes a long time to come out and the seating was pretty bad. Sorry, wanted to love it.
For the best fish and chips head to Epcot!

OK -- We knew going in that the lines would be long and there would probably be no available seating... and we were absolutely right. The line was LONG and SLOW. When we finally got to the register, the grumpy employee looked at us and said "I'm done!" and turned around and left. Hmmmm. The employee at the next register kindly helped us.
We had read online that they served batter dipped fried Snickers bars here. It was the reason my daughter picked this counter service restaurant. There is a BIG sign over the register enticing people to try this item. When you order it, however, you will be told that it has been discontinued :(
Seating is, of course, limited, sigh. On the evening we were there, there were a few large family groups that put a couple of people in line while other family members grabbed up tables as soon as people were finished and pushed them together for their party. We watched this happening and by the time we were through the line, almost all the outdoor seating was "taken" by a few families. We stood outside in the chilly weather and gobbled our fish, which was good, as quickly as possible. Not the experience we were hoping for on our first night in the World, but there were magical moments ahead.
Pros:Good Fried Fish
Cons:Not nearly enough seating, Long Lines

We ate a on very hot sunny day. We loved the food. Generous portions. Nicely done fish not greasy. You are given a number to take to your table and they serve you. However, very few seats indoors. Had to sit outside in the courtyard of the Hole in the Wall bar. Nice bar, but very expensive. Courtyard is hot with very little shade. We will definitely go again.
Pros:great fish and chips
Cons:very little indoor seating

We had the lamb and beef pie, the kid's burger, and a huge order of the garlic and parm skinny chips. It was all delish. The meat pie was hot and the crust wasn't too thick. The filling was generous and not at all salty. The kids burger was better than most at Disney. It didn't have that "frozen disk" feel. The real winner was the garlic and parm skinny chips. Hot, fresh, crispy- perfect. The portion is massive and while the line to order was rather long, they were totally worth the wait.
Pros:Amazing chips (fries!)

Cookes is a hidden gem in the Disney World resort. It doesnâ€™t really get talked about by foodies, but it is my personal favorite of the counter services. I really enjoyed the Chicken Tenders and Fries the last time I went their. It tastes like something youâ€™d get at a table service not a counter. The French Fries are so good here that they seem to have no rival in Disney World. Their much different then the ones that you would usually get at a counter service. Most of the fries used in Disney counters are thin shoestrings. These are stubby uneven steak fries so they taste more like a potato then their counterparts. If you donâ€™t want the Chicken thereâ€™s plenty of other stuff to choose from. I donâ€™t think I want to try anything else though because the Chicken Tenders are so good. The Free Refill Machines are a plus, especially on a hot day.
I was so stuffed afterward my Chicken that I had to get my dessert Cookie to go. Thereâ€™s many desserts to choose from other then that though, like the Strawberry Roll, Fried Candy Bars, and Baked Meringues (w/ strawberry and ice cream). Plus these are things you canâ€™t get anywhere else. Unlike many of the counters at Magic Kingdom which seem to have the same 3 desserts.
The only reason I couldn't give this place a 9 is because of what this place looks like and where it is in Disney World. The atmosphere is very forgettable, all I can remember about it is the chalkboard looking menus. The restaurant is also very tiny, it feels like it's made for Leprechauns. The most that can fit inside the restaurant is probably four to five families. So me and my family had to sit outside at a heavy lawn table and chairs. The location of the restaurant is also really outta the way. Even if you are going to Downtown Disney/Disney Springs it is a bit of a hike to get there.
