Really enjoyed the lunch here, I'd recommend the pork sandwich. The wait time was horrendous though 30 mins+ and I couldn't find any milk for my coffee. Luckily I managed to nab a staffer and he brought some to my table.

having several visits under our family belts we've visited this restaurant (almost) every time we were in the parks. but with that there have been noticeable shifts in the building as far as food quality, and space used. In our most recent visit in December 2014 the upper level was marked as only being used for the holidays, reducing the... More

The food here is normal theme park food, but we had to wait a good twenty minutes in line. I got chicken tenders and they were okay.

We bought the all day dining plan for our day out and would say this was the best one in the park. It's lovely and cool and the food is made to order.

The Crown Colony Restaurant (the sit down area upstairs, not the downstairs counter service) has been my top pick for where to eat at Busch Gardens for the last 10+ years for one very big reason – free drink refills. The upstairs area features a large, shaded patio area with ample ceiling fans and even in the scorching Florida heat,... More

Having finished riding the coasters at Busch Gardens, we chose the Crown Colony House restaurant for a snack. This reaffirmed my opinion that Busch Gardens food is far better than that offered by most other Florida theme parks that I have visited. The food is tasty with good portions and at a reasonable price. Added to this, the Crown Colony... More

We ate at this restaurant on a Saturday mid-day. We got in without a reservation and were seated at the center of the room. We were then ignored for about 15 minutes before our drink order was event taken. Service once it finally arrived was fine. My teens had burgers, I had the fish taco. Kids declared the burgers good.... More

It's unusual to find a restaurant in a theme park and this is a find - unlimited Chicken / Fish options are great. Be warned - go for a stroll around the animal exhibits not the rollercoasters when finished. Super views over the Savannah is a nice bonus

The service here is outstanding. The portion size is BIG. Thank about splitting between 2 persons if you are not really hungry. The value for price paid is outstanding. And this is a nice place to relax for a time after being out in the hot Florida summer days and recharge for more fun in the park.
