...but this experience was WAY over the top. We were made fun of because (among other things) we were from California. Our server shouted out to our fellow restaurant patrons, "You can tell they're from California, they don't even talk to each other; you can REALLY tell they're from California, they don't even LOOK at each other!" Had I known... More

We really enjoyed the food and the selection that we was given. What I did not enjoy was the attitude disrespect ( tried to be like Dicks Last Resort) loved the Ketchup game. Funny watching kids pack it around. Also enjoyed the free horse race.

As is everything Disney, it is great fun. Unlike other restaurants, here you choose to participate or not. If you choose not to participate, the show still goes on. If you participate, it makes for great pictures and memories. The staff is great and the food is good. Again, as is everything Disney, be patient - if you are in... More

I had read all about the ketchup calling and the loudness of this place, and I have to admit I was worried when I went with a group of adults. We ended up being seated in a quieter section and the server treated us like an actual group of adults. He was fun with out being too silly. The food... More

We stayed at the DVC resort here, so Whispering Canyon was naturally on our list of eateries! What fun we had! The wait staff is so much fun! They hava a routine: when you ask for a pepsi, they all gather around and yell, "we don't have anything but coke here"!, and after someone asks for catsup, they get one... More

We four adults stopped for a late breakfast and forgot about the rootin' tootin' atmosphere. Well right away they give you a placard to put on your table, green side up if you want in on the fun or red side up to "watch from the fence". We chose to watch and getting there late made it pretty tame. As... More

We enjoyed our meal but felt very rushed by our waitress. They offer a family style buffett but you do not have to order it. My husband was the only one who got it. (they gave him a TON of food, a lot went to waste, he felt awful for that) Everyone shouts for ketchup and it's a great time.... More

Lets start with the positives.... wonderful atmosphere, fantastic food. We shared the family platter with ribs, sausage, potato, pulled pork, corn, beans, bread....all was delicious and all you can eat. Cons..... LOUD, servers constantly hollering to have you sing happy birthday, having kids ride around on stick horses, even tried to get a 16 y/o girl having her birthday a... More

We ate there this past week and the dinner was pretty good. Its served family style at the table. The sirloin roast was fantastic! The ribs were ok. The ribs were tender but I wasnt crazy about the sauce but thats my opinon. You have the option of "playing" or not playing with the other tables. Our waitress was very... More
