Yes, my friends, Mrs. All in WDW and I stopped by for another quick visit to Old Key West’s Gurgling Suitcase. If you missed it, here’s my earlier review!
My lovely wife and I have come to the conclusion that Disney’s Old Key West is a very under-appreciated resort. Complete with lighthouse, it’s beautifully themed!
Of course, the Gurgling Suitcase is usually our main target of interest. Why? Generally, it’s because we’re in search of an adult refreshment and a quick lunch!
Suitcase’s “outside while you’re inside” atmosphere doesn’t hurt either. Especially when it’s a 98 degree Summer day! You can enjoy the outdoors while you lounge in air-conditioned comfort!
For lunch on this July day, Mrs. All in WDW enjoyed a serving of the Gurgling Suitcase’s Pulled Pork BBQ Nachos.
A pile of house-made potato chips, smothered by pulled pork, fresh jalapenos, cheese, sour cream, and salsa was quite a filling lunch! Pretty reasonable, too, at $8.29.
I was a bit more expensive, I’m afraid. The first time we visited, our bartender raved about the menu’s Fish Sandwich. It’s $13.99, but he claimed it was a phenomenal dish. I had to give it a shot!
Also very filling, it was accompanied by the aforementioned house-made chips. The remoulade is fantastic! It’s the same as they provide with their Conch Fritters, by the way.
Gurgling Suitcase’s Conch Fritters. We had these on our first visit.
But, back to the fish sandwich. I found the “star” of this “hoagie” – fresh grouper cheeks – to be a bit stronger taste than I prefer. Honestly, I would have preferred a much milder fish.
For us, when it comes to Old Key West’s Gurgling Suitcase, the big “win” is the setting.
We love a good outside bar – hence our love for Laguna Bar at Disney’s Coronado Springs. To be able to enjoy the “outside”, at a very nicely themed resort, while sitting in cool, conditioned air? Well, that just rocks!
