We really enjoyed our lunch. The all you care to eat platter is quite a deal. The BBQ ribs were delicious. Pulled pork sandwich was outstanding. The kids loved the bottomless milk shakes.

Yummy! That is my official statement on the great food from the Whispering Canyon, perfectly cooked meat and an apple pie better than my mother ever made. It was a fun lunch in a great surrounding.

Good family spot, loud and entertaining!!! stuff for kids, lots of food and wait staff are mostly humorous and involved!! You get a whole bunch of meats, ribs, chicken, sausage, beef, corn on the cob, potatoes, beans, its like an indoor bbq. Not sure I would be 100% happy paying but last few trips I was on the free dining... More

It is the ultimate BBQ experience. So much delicious food in a super relaxed atmosphere with very funny waiters who do not a miss an opportunity to play with the guests. Just ask for ketchup and see what happens. you will never ask for ketchup anywhere again without laughing.

First would like to say the staff was great and was fun being at this restaurant. The food however was not very good. We only ate here for breakfast and was disappointed. Ate here 3 times since we were staying at the lodge. Day one found a hair in my food, day two part of the food was cold. Only... More

This place is really fun. If you are a stick in the mud don't go, but if you can laugh at yourself and others you're in for a treat. We had a blast! Our waitress MT was funny and picked on my husband! We laughed so hard. Food was delicious. S'mores dessert was awesome!

There's nothing special about the food, but there is enough variety to satisfy young kids and adults alike. The hook for this place is the wait staff, who can be as outrageous as you'd like. If you give them the signal (green side up own your coaster), they will engage in all the banter you can take. The big deal... More
