Description: "Biergarten restaurant, in the heart of the Bavarian Village in the Germany Pavilion at Epcot theme park, celebrates Oktoberfest all year long. Authentic German cuisine is served for lunch and dinner buffets. Lively costumed musicians provide traditional Oktoberfest entertainment throughout lunch and dinner. Music and merriment resound as diners are encouraged to dance and be part of the boisterous merrymaking–or simply relax in the twilight atmosphere in this magnificent German hall. At the Biergarten Restaurant, seating is at long communal tables that offer a great view of the festivities. Grab a chair, join the revelry and create your own traditional German meal. Rotating lunch and dinner selections consist of hearty German favorites such as bratwurst, red cabbage sauerkraut, pork schnitzel and spaetzle. Delicious desserts, from Bavarian cheesecake to freshly baked apple strudel, complete any meal at the Biergarten Restaurant.

My husband and I really love dining at Biergarten each trip. We had actually done about 20 trips or more to Disney World before trying it on a whim one night. We were so pleasantly surprised with our experience that it has become a must-do on each trip. Now, we love to dine at all of the signature restaurants, including... More

Chose this restaurant because we had a large group and this restaurant is a buffet with long tables. Didn't realize that the price was $38 per person and 18% gratuity automatically added meant check was $50 a person. Buffet includes soft drinks. Beer and wine add even more to the tab. The food is very authentic -- lots of sausages,... More

Made a reservation for 7:05PM...Waiting till 8:10PM and finally cancelled our reservation after waiting for over an hour. Saw guests go in who had arrived AFTER we arrived. The whole place was chaos. I was really looking forward to this experience and showing family who was with us from out of town all the different experiences you could have in... More

I entered this restaurant with low expectations. Reading reviews in the past, knowing all food served here was buffet, i.e. food on a steam table, I expected a mediocre experience. Instead, my group and I were greeted and served by an extremely friendly, knowledgeable team of wait staff that are German natives, but speak excellent English. After guidance from our... More

I would avoid going to this restaurant buffet. There were mostly starches and sausages. The food was overcooked and dry and not very tasty. The music only lasted about 15 minutes. Our waitress was very gracious and attentive and the atmosphere was nice. The food was just not worth the $38 per adult and $18 per child. Very pricey.

Went with my daughter, son, boyfriend, and another of my daughter's team mates and her parents to celebrate our daughters' win of National Championship at Cheer Competition. It sounded like a fun way to celebrate. We did have a great time, there seemed to be a long lapse between the shows, and that was a bit unexpected, but the food... More

We went with reservations, and still had quite a long wait. And although they seemed to get it all worked out, there seemed a sense of disorganization with people milling around, not really having any place to wait. Food service is a buffet and a bit pricey. The sequence of seating seemed to cause really long lines. The food was... More

Biergarten (reservations are a must!) sat us with 5 other people at a table for 8. Not too bad, as the others were friendly. The food is rich and heavy, and there is a good variety of items including different meats (schnitzel), veggie dishes, salads (beet salad was fantastic), and desserts. I'm not a fan of German desserts. The live... More

This restaurant adds insult to injury. Not only you are made to wait more than 40 min of your reservation time but also a good 15 min in a poorly organized buffet line (yes, people cutting the line or aligning themselves with someone they knew that happens to be at the top of the line). Then when you look at... More
