Help me pick a bday dinner!

I just booked my second solo 2/27-3/2 to celebrate my birthday!

I want to do at least 1 signature dining for my bday but I'd like to eat at the bar and I don't know which restaurants offer this. I think California Grill does, which is where I ate last time for my bday, so I wouldn't mind trying somewhere different.

Do you guys know which signatures will let me eat at the bar? Do all of them do this? I don't mind dining by myself, I just don't want to be held to ADRs this trip so if I can grab a seat at the bar and get the same food that'll work!

Super excited about my 2nd solo!!

Hi, You can definitely eat at the bar at Flying Fish . The bar faces an open kitchen so you can watch food being prepared while you eat. Joan

Just looked at some pics at disneyfoodblog, that looks like a good choice! I don't like seafood but there seems to be plenty else to choose from. I've never been to the boardwalk so I was thinking about going there after my epcot day and going to jelly rolls anyway. That sounds like a great bday night! I shouldn't need reservations for bar service right?

I agree with Joan. My last solo trip I did Chef's Table at Flying Fish and had a fabulous time!! When I looked and saw that I could eat at the bar I kept a note of that and will be doing that my next solo trip in May. Enjoy your birthday and have a great time!!

Flying Fish is great, does an amazing steak - I've booked a couple of ADRs there for my upcoming May solo trip, I also feel so at ease there.

Yes, you will need to make an ADR for this location (Flying Fish) it is a popular bar to dine at due to the open kitchen. Enjoy!! Joan
