“Great for a quick bite to eat in a relaxing environment”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2013

The food was very delicious and there are some great spots to sit and eat down near the river which makes you forget you are in a busy theme park. We have a couple of picky eaters, so it took a few minutes to convince them that chicken nuggets were not on the menu, but once their food came they were okay and dived in. We had the meal plans so french fries did not come with the entree (or at least when my husband ordered, he didn't order it that way) - so I ended up going back and getting two sides of fries - once those arrived to supplement their sandwiches they were fine. We also had one of the salads that was super delicious!

“Good.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2013

It was a bit busy and they didn't get the order right so it wasn't a great start however the food tasted delicious, we had pulled pork sandwich, smoked chicken salad kids hot dog and kids sandwich. We sat down in a peaceful section by the pond. Very nice quick service restaurant.

“Best Chicken Salad ever”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2013

We grabbed a Quick Service lunch at this restaurant at Animal Kingdom and thoroughly enjoyed our salads and dessert seated by a shallow pool with lush greenery, interesting plants and birds. Only negative was the bees in the sunshine, which hovered near our table, due to our sweet drinks and desserts. There were so many seating areas it was not crowded and i saw many others enjoying chicken and ribs and large sandwiches as well.

“Great Ribs in Animal Kingdom”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2013

This is an unassuming counter service place, but they get BBQ right relying on the smoke for flavor. The chicken and ribs are excellent, the beans hearty and yummy, the coleslaw average but hits the spot. I also enjoyed the salad this trip.

To get the best front waterside seating start down the path to the left of the restaurant straight as long as you can then keep veering left and down. You do run the risk of bird droppings but, it is animal Kingdom !
