“Gone down hill”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2013

Me and my family used to visit this restaurant almost every night when we came on holiday to Kissimmee when it used to be Key W Kools. The steaks used to be cooked on an oak open pit grille which you could smell from the 192 .. And it used to be packed with families. Used to be our favourite restaurant (Which is now Charleys Steakhouse) Then it changed to Wildside and everything changed. It's dirty, food is awful and terrible atmosphere. The whole concept has changed, it's now sports bar like with all the games on and all u can hear is people shouting at the bar at the tvs. I had alligator bites and filet mignon and when I came home I was so sick during the night. I do not understand why they have changed it as its still owned by the same owner who had Key W Kools but we are so sad how down hill it has gone, and im sure any other people who once enjoyed Key W Kools will agree! We have since holidayed in Kissimmee and have never eaten back at Wildside and have no intentions too either

“A disappointment.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2013

We stopped here because we were in the mood for a BBQ, but were disappointed in the overall experience. The food was very tasty, but was extremely heavy. Service was OK. Restaurant itself appeared fine from the outside, but seemed to need a good cleaning and updating inside. Also very noisy. Would not go out of our way to return.

“Dirty”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2013

They had only 2 beers on tap. The menu was ok, my burger was actually pretty good. The place was filthy and the atmosphere was horrible. There was an extremely loud noise coming from the bar area like someone was trying to drill through a concrete wall. If that's what was going on, dinnertime is not the time to do this. There was ketchup on the walls, crumbs on our table when we sat down, and the bathrooms didn't look like they've been cleaned since gas was $1.50 a gallon. There are lots of places to eat around Disney World, pass this one by.

I am truly sorry that your dining experience at Wildsides was so unpleasant. We have high standards on cleanliness and am not sure what was going on that evening. I do know, however, we have had a Management change since then. I will address these issues as they are completely unacceptable. Thank you for letting us know so we can fix these issues.

“Once is all it takes”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2013 via mobile

We were looking for a good Hamburg so we tried here.
I do have to say that we were getting food to go so we were directed to the bar.
The bartender was very nice and took our order promptly. I found it weird she did not even ask if we wanted a drink. We didn't so that was ok. We both asked for our hamburgs to be well done I even says VERY well done. When we got home both of the burgers were cooked medium at best. the taste of the burger was great but could only eat the edges. JUST be aware if you like well done you should expect red in middle.
