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

The Wilderness Lodge Hotel is stunning and a real treat to visit at Xmas time. I had read the reviews so I knew what to expect but I didn't brief my family. I wont spoil it but this place is a must for families. Our server pitched the fun just right and we had such a good time and we... More

I did no research on this place at all, which is very unlike me! LOL! We just popped in to see if we could get a table, we were told it would be close to a thirty minute wait. We got paged in about five minutes! We were seated at our table ( apparently they give you a card to... More

Their "shtick" is acting silly, joking with the guests, and being rowdy, which is fun and different. The service could be very slow at times. We got the "all you care to eat" BBQ platter. It was good but not great. They did offer unlimited smoothies and milkshakes.

We're used to better food at Disney's table service. Perhaps it was a few items that threw us off, like sweetened potatoes (white potatoes with sugar I think?) Service was generally good. It's an "interactive" restaurant with guest participation. Just know what you're getting yourself into.

This was one of the most fun-filled dining experiences we have ever had. Our family, consisting of 2 grandparents, 2 parents, and 2 small children, loved every minute of our dinner at Wispering Canyon Cafe in Wilderness Lodge. The food was outstanding, including the "lazy man's buffet", as well as the individual entrees. Asking for "ketchup" was hilarious, as the... More
