A great all you can eat family style buffet with numerous meat options, corn on cob, baked beans, veggies and unlimited refills of MILKSHAKES!! It's a fun time with the wait staff having good times with patrons! Be sure to ask for Ketchup!!!

We visited Whispering Canyon Cafe for breakfast this morning. We decided to not go with the all you can eat. Two adults ordered the flapjacks & meat (sausage or bacon) and the other two ordered the omelette. I had the egg white omelet with spinach & feta cheese. Served with biscuit and fruit. Very tasty combination. One said the flapjacks... More

My family ate here on a Saturday night. We had been to WDW several times and had heard a lot about The Whispering Canyon Café, but never had eaten here until our most recent trip. We were seated at our reservation time. Our server was wonderful. She was very helpful when discussing the menu and she was a lot of... More

Even if you are not staying at the Wilderness Lodge resort, you need to eat here! The inside and outside of the hotel is simply beautiful, check out the totem poles! . Great menu items and on holidays they have a set menu all you can eat!. The pasta is awesome, and their desserts are great. Tip.... ask for ketchup... More

If you make the mistake of asking for ketchup - you will get 20 ketchup bottles from the last person who mistakenly asked for ketchup. When we went, kids were encouraged to do pony ride races in the restaurant. If you're looking for a quiet relaxing meal, do NOT go here.

Love the fact that there is nothing quiet about this restaurant but what a fun filled experience. Diners are given the option to "turn it up" (participate in the fun) or not. I strongly suggest turning it up. Leave your sensitivity and egos at the door as the wait staff will definitely take their "jabs" at you. Our favorite part... More

We visted Whispering Canyon for 2 dinner meals and 1 breakfast meal. We did not book reservations for either of our visits. Our wait time to be seated for dinner was under 10 minutes. We have our dinnertime around 500pm. Our first visit we had the all you can eat skillet- $30 per person. The skillet is a meat lovers... More

We had several meals here as there are not many choices at the Wilderness. Atmosphere is loud, servers encourage participation, food is just ok. Wasn't my favorite place only ate here out of convenience.

Great food, wonderful servers, and nostolgic atmosphere. When you are seated the host asks you if you want to be part of the interaction that goes on in the restaurant or if you don't. It's your choice to just eat and watch. Loved this breakfast and will return when in the area.

We have been to whispering Canyon several times. We like it. It is somewhat unique in some of it's activities. The food is good and there is a lot of it. Maybe some of the uniqueness has worn off. It was good but not great. I think if it is your first time you will really enjoy it. Make sure... More
