We were seated immediately, it seems that lunch time is usually not overly crowded as people are in the parks.

Our kids LOVED this place. The stick pony races, people getting 'put in jail' for misbehaving, waiters using customer cameras to take pictures of the whole restaurant.....brilliant family fun. The food was delicious and plentiful. We shared a family skillet of ribs, chicken, beef, pulled pork, mash, corn, beans and sausage with salad, corn bread, dessert and bottomless drinks -... More

ate here for breakfast fairly early. it was pretty quiet so we didnt get the service most people come here for. However the food was good and the service was good. Definatly plan on going at a busier time to get the Whispering Canyon expeirence next time.

We shared the family styled skillet dinner, everything was fine, food wise. Only problem, they didn't have the stick pony races or any other interactive activities while were were eating. You can only scream for more ketchup so many times.

I have to say this place cracks me up! The staff is entertaining but honestly have seen people not so happy with their antics. But doesn't bother me! I had the meatloaf which was pretty good although I must say a little salty. Everyone else liked their meals. So might have just been my taste buds. The menu is varied... More

One of my favourite restaurants and one we've eaten in on most trips. The family style skillet is excellent. There's now a placemat to turn depending if you want to watch the hi jinks or participate. I did ask for ketchup desparately pointing to the "watching" side - it didn't work. It's all good if somewhat noisy fun. All the... More

This restaurant is great for families but be prepared for it to be loud and interactive. The waiters and waitresses all get everyone involved in some crazy games and best of all be prepared if you want some ketchup :) The food is excellent and we went for both breakfast and dinner. The skillets they serve are all you can... More

While at the 24 hours of Disney this past May we ate here. We have been trying to work our way through all the restaurants that are in the Disney Megapolis. So as a result we were not guests at the hotel, just passing by. The restaurant is off to the side of the AMAZING lobby, seriously, the lobby is... More

Very loud. Kids seem to enjoy it. Not really a place for an adult meal. Food is mediocre. The restaurant is open to the lobby, so it is also noisy in the lobby of Wilderness Lodge.
