Carry-Out Leaves Much to Be Desired

My husband and I did the Play 'n Dine package in which we each paid a little more for our meals ($6 more each) in exchange for 2 $10 arcade cards. This made our meals a good value in our opinion, but I would have been very unhappy if I paid $16 per person for what we received. First, we... read more

Our family first tried this restaurant a year ago - and we weren't that impressed - slightly expensive and so-so food (it is located in the main lobby of the Kalahari Resort). This year when we visited we thought we would give it one more try. The food hasn't improved (we even we ordered different items). To add insult to... More

Kids orange juice was $4 a pop! Boo! But food was yummy and the atmosphere was relaxed and festive. Breakfast was good and speedy. Happy hour had some nice deals.

I went for lunch, early in the lunch hour and the restaurant was not at all full. The woman taking my names asked me if I minded a tall table. Being a short person, I said I'd rather have one of the regular open tables (there were many empty ones). She rolled her eyes, shrugged her shoulders and reluctantly showed... More

We ate at this restaurant the first night of our stay. The food was excellent and the portions were big, but what was puzzling was the restaurant wasn't that busy; yet we had to wait an inordinate amount of time for our food to arrive.

We tried this bar/grill for dinner one night during our recent Kalahari stay. It did not appear to be crowded when we arrived, but we waited at the hostess stand for a good 5 minutes before anyone showed up. Then, when 2 women showed up, they were arguing (loudly) with each other about cleaning tables. They continued to argue, in... More

I have had the opportunity to eat at Ivory Coast for breakfast and dinner on several occasions. Their burgers and wraps are great, as are their breakfast items (try the Eggs Benedict). However, the dinner I had there most recently was not as impressive. On this particular occasion, the server was nice and attentive, but the steak I ordered was... More

Tried this restaurant for an early lunch when we arrived at the Kalahari. The staff was friendly and we were seated right away. We got a table near the fireplace sitting area and it was a pretty area to sit. I had the BLT and my boyfriend had a BBQ burger. There was nothing special about the food and it... More
