The all day food wrist band is worth it.

The views of the animals (like antelopes and giraffes) are nice with your meal. The 30 dollar all day wrist band makes eating in the park affordable if you eat more than 2 times. My favorite restaurant in Busch Gardens is the Smoke house very good barbeque.

I was pretty excited to eat here. From the looks of it, it looked like a very cool Pub and Cafe. Once inside, it was very disappointing. The menu was very limited and the service was VERY slow. We had the Club Sandwiches which were pretty good. The best thing about this restaurant is the view of the giraffes, rhinos,... More

Nice place to sit in the a/c. Menu has simple sandwiches, salads, and chicken fingers. Food was good and we purchased the refillable souvenir cup and that was worth it.

We have visited this restaurant in Busch Gardens over many years and enjoyed the family-style meals. The last time we went was in 2013, and from what we know now, must have been the last week it was a table-service restaurant. Now, it's just a place to go and eat your food that you buy on the ground floor. Standard... More

Honestly, I was expecting a little more. It wasn't bad, but it was no more than average, and the price is fair. Service is okay. The architecture of the place is interesting and the view is also nice from inside to the park.

The restaurant setting is nice, but the food is only OK. They offer chicken fingers, pizza, club sandwich, and salads mostly. The portions are nice sized and would be good for a family with kids that only eat a few things. For me on the other hand, I wanted something that entertained my palate a bit more. My suggestions at... More

We had the all day dining deal and I had the pizza which was pretty good. However, I will say that when I was there they were having trouble keeping up with the number of people who wanted pizza. I think I waited like 15-20 minutes for them to get more pizza out.

The club sandwich and the pizza was good. Nice sit down casual place to rest up your feet and catch a breath or nice place to stay out of the rain.
