Hidden Gem!

Don't underestimate this place. It may not look like much compared to all the other wonderful options at DW but the food here is some of the best available. The all you can eat platter is outstanding and so is the tuna sandwich

We had lunch here during our last trip, we were served promptly and our waiter was a hoot! we chose not to participate in the action (you get a card and can decide whether to get involved with the fun and games or not) he was still fun and lively but he didn't make us participate in the games.

This place is not quiet, and the wait staff might be rude or obnoxious to you. If you can take it, you and your family are likely to have some fun! The food is good, but the atmosphere wins the race. The kids will get called to do a pony race around the restaurant. And, please, have your kids ask... More

I like this restaurant--my wife hates it. This is because although the food is very good for its sort of thing, Disney has a sort of theme here--loud and goofy servers. It was much less loud and goofy the last time I was there but my wife says the place makes her head hurt! I think kids would love it.

We loved our waitress at this dining location. She was great and made the whole breakfast very enjoyable. The "I need ketchup" time is very funny and the kids seem to enjoy taking 20 ketchup bottles to one time a great time. The breakfast food was decent but nothing extraordinary. The location and staff made this breakfast a great start... More

We sat. They acted crazy in the restaurant. We waited. People got served before us who came in after but... the food compensated for the lack of service. So. Know this and just go with your gut. Literally.

If you like peace and quiet, don't eat here! But if you like delicious Bbq and want to have some good family fun, have at it! Very different, (don't wanna spoil the surprises) but give it a try!

We ate here for breakfast on our last day, we had a reservation, the place wasn't very busy, but we had to wait for quite a while for a table. Once we were seated, we were served pretty quickly, we both got the breakfast skillet which had a variety of foods and was very good, but after our food was... More

The Whispering Canyon Café in the Wilderness Lodge is overpriced, and the food is just plain terrible. There were four of us there for dinner. We all tried the meatloaf which came with green beans. The price for a meatloaf dinner - $22. The meatloaf was like no other meatloaf I have ever had. Our combined thoughts were that it... More
