Nestled in the Disneyland Hotel away from the main thoroughfare it provides a semi private feeling. With a very small indoor bar attached to Tangaroa Terrace, this place can be easily missed. Decorated from top to bottom as only Disney can do. This place is eye candy for the tourist staying in the Disneyland Hotel but can be a nice get away for a local as many don't know this place exists. The inside is dark and cramped. While at the bar you periodically feel a slight mist spray as the lights flicker and the bar keep yells some sort of clever cliche that makes you feel like you are on Pirates of the Caribbean ride. Due to the size, this place can fill up fast leaving you waiting for some time to get a drink. The food is kept to only appetizers but boy are they good. Every single item on the menu was fun and delicious. My favorite is the Kalua Pork Flatbread that satisfies my sweet and salty cravings without over filling me. The prices are your expected Disney pricing but the flavors are surprising. The bar is pitifully stocked but hopefully this is due to it's newness and they will place more variety as it's doors stay open. I was hoping for a large rum selection being a tiki bar but they are currently failing on any rum variety at all (go buy a Sailor Jerry bottle from BevMo!). Their drinks were well made with fresh ingredients and were fun for both the eye and tongue. The service was friendly with good conversation and quick to accommodate any special requests. Overall this is a welcome addition to the Downtown Disney section making for a different getaway in typical Disney style. The food won't be your dinner if you are hungry but can definitely tickle your taste buds. With a better stocked rum selection this place could be five stars.
I recently visited 50/50 after a football game, a group of us were meeting there before going to dinner somewhere. We ordered drinks and appetizers and watched sports on TV. Not only was the staff very friendly, the owner came by and was telling us about his own creation, a fabulous cheesy dip. I found the menu to be very creative with so many different style hamburgers and then of course the 'build your own' that was awesome. I was so impressed that for my B-day lunch, I celebrated there along with several co-workers. They loved the food, the atmosphere, the service. We wanted to try everything on the menu. We ordered 3 different appetizers, had non-stop drinks, and then ordered our lunch, there was a hamburger style for every person. I heard everyone at our table say they definitely were going back, and everyone thanked me for selecting a fun place to have lunch that had fabulous food. You MUST experience 50/50 !!
While staying at the convention center hotel I wanted something to do. I ask the bell desk where there was a pool table. I was given the name of Danny K's. as I started to walk away another bellman ask if I was looking for a pool hall. I said no. More like a dive bar with a pool table. he said then you do not want to go to Danny K's. go the other direction about 7 or 8 blocks. Place on the left is called GOOD OL' BOYS SALOON. I followed his directions and entered just what the doctor ordered. A Dive bar with 2 pool tables, 3 Dart boards a shuffle board and the cutest little bartender asking me what I would like to drink. I met a lot of good working class joes, just like myself. Had a great time and made a few friends. This should be on the convention list of things to do in the Disney area if your too old for the Kiddie crap. Loved it.
