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.

Had lunch with friends in the Crown Colony which was excellent value and exceptionally good quality. Would certainly go to this restaurant on the next visit to Busch Gardens.

Pork on flatbread very tasty! Chicken strips are crunchy good! Nice hot french fries and fresh orange slices both very yummy too!

The food is typical southern family style. It is good, but the best part is being able to look at the giraffes and zebras while eating. It is a truly unique dining experience that would be hard to get elsewhere.

It is a very good resturant for an in-themepark eatery. Selection is ok, price is...theme park...price. Depending on the time of year, will depend on how busy it is. You dont need a reservation either.

Really nice food at a very reasonable price considering it's also inside a theme park. Seating is available on many levels with views of the wildlife reserve and also bar seating around a pub-like setting. Food was reasonable in portion size and the staff all seemed very busy in their jobs but attentive non the less. A very enjoyable mid... More
