Good food and a lot of fun

Tried this place with family and had a great time. The food was better than average but the fun brought on by the wait staff made our dinner very enjoyable. Go there with the idea that it will be loud but fun.

My wife and I stopped by the Wilderness Lodge looking for a resort style place to have lunch, and came across Whispering Canyon Cafe. The decor and atmosphere was very different for us, and we were intrigued to try something a bit more on the "western" side of things, at least based on appearance. The service was fantastic, and our... More

My family is not an avid Disney traveler, but we have been there about 6 times in the last 20 years. This past April we enjoyed a Fantastic dinner at the Whispering Canyon Cafe, our 10th time dining here. Every time we dine here, the experience is completely different; in terms of what antics will be played out. We have... More

We had no idea what to expect, but laughed our entire meal! Great fun for the family and be sure to ask for ketchup and a large drink! It can get loud and if you don't want to "play" turn your card to red.

After reading the reviews, we couldn't wait to try this place. The food was mediocre. Unfortunately, our waiter didn't provide much fun for us at all. Another cast member was at another table, and he focused on her table and ignored ours. The service was poor. The "fun" comments seemed more personal than entertaining, a feeling shared by all at...

I've eaten in a lot of restaurants. The waitstaff is usually friendly everywhere you go, but this is one dining experience I will commit to memory. I could probably see Jeff on the street and say hello. He was phenomenal! A blue tag Disney employee, he obviously earned his legacy through his incredible service. Not only did he remember the...

I had lunch reservations here, I went in with no idea of what to expect besides the ketchup run. I had such a great time! The CMs were absolutely hilarious. I was the one who kept getting picked on and my party loved it of course. I had MT serving us. She was awesome! I highly recommend this place. Mainly... More

This is a dining experience in every sense of the word. Great food and great fun. Be sure to ask for the ketchup. Not a quiet restaurant if you're looking for that.

My husband and I ate here as part of the Backstage Magic Tour. Delicious barbecue of every kind. There are other options for those wishing to order off the menu. Worth going just to see and tour the Wilderness Lodge - the Pacific Northwest brought to Orlando!

Friendly service. Great waiter, food arrived hot and fast (kids love that). Reservations are needed especially on the weekends. No complaints about the place.
