It is very noisy, but the food was very good, and they keep bringing it. We had the family platters, and yes if you want Ketchup you have to yell, and then when the next table wants Ketchup you have to get up and run all the Ketchup to their table. It was explained by our waitress in advance. She... More

The modus operandi of this coffee shop is yelling by some servers, getting some people up and running around to bring ketchup to other tables. Kids loved it, but adults without children looked rather pained, and people from other countries did not seem to understand what was going on. Don't forget to make reservations, we could not be accomodated at... More

Very limited menu. Didn't enjoy most of the options. Some of our group went family style, but for those of us who don't eat a lot of meat it was a waste. Restaurant very loud and no big tables for large groups. We were split into three tables of five and we had made reservations 180 days in advance. Disappointed... More

My last review of this restaurant was not good. They had changed the menu and it was terrible! Enough guests must have complained because they have returned to their original menu. We loved the food and we so happy to have this wonderful food again. Highly recommend this experience!

Talk about dinner and a show! The wait staff entertain with their wit and the food is good. Perfect for children and adults alike. It can get noisy.

I loved the atmosphere at this family restaurant. The service was excellent. They have a "rodeo roundup" periodically where the kids form a line and gallop around the restaurant. The staff brings every bottle of ketchup in the restaurant to one table. When someone else requests ketchup, the waitress and everyone at the table shouts out "We need some ketchup."... More

The restaurant is located inside the lobby of the Wilderness Lodge and can be heard throughout the entire area. If you are shy or your kids are shy, make sure your tell the cast members as they DO make sure you are properly welcomed! In addition, they absolutely love to pick on the smaller kids. We had breakfast here and... More

we had just arrived from a long flight from the UK and as we were staying at Wilderness Lodge this was the obvious choice. The family all you can eat buffet was enormous and delicious. We didn't know of the reputation for fun and rowdiness but although our children are too old for that it was great to see everyone... More

We were running late for our reservation but the desk was kind enough to give us time to get there and hold our table. We sat down and our server, Gingersnap, promptly came over and got sassy with us, telling me to put my phone away. My kids loved it. We had the dining plan, so we each got an... More

By far, this is not a whispering cafe. We sat down to a wonderful table and the fun began. The host made funny wise cracking jokes. They involve the whole restaurant in their gags and it's fun for all. Good food, reasonable prices for Disney. Entertaining.
