Description: "Biergarten restaurant, in the heart of the Bavarian Village in the Germany Pavilion at Epcot theme park, celebrates Oktoberfest all year long. Authentic German cuisine is served for lunch and dinner buffets. Lively costumed musicians provide traditional Oktoberfest entertainment throughout lunch and dinner. Music and merriment resound as diners are encouraged to dance and be part of the boisterous merrymaking–or simply relax in the twilight atmosphere in this magnificent German hall. At the Biergarten Restaurant, seating is at long communal tables that offer a great view of the festivities. Grab a chair, join the revelry and create your own traditional German meal. Rotating lunch and dinner selections consist of hearty German favorites such as bratwurst, red cabbage sauerkraut, pork schnitzel and spaetzle. Delicious desserts, from Bavarian cheesecake to freshly baked apple strudel, complete any meal at the Biergarten Restaurant.

“Great if you know and like German food!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2013

I grew up with German cooking and was glad to see most of the buffet was quite authentic to the flavor I expected. The show was also great but loud. HOWEVER.... my wife and children did not grow up with this type of food, and although they found items to eat (mac and cheese) they were not very happy about the meal. Frankly, I would go with my brothers who also love this type of fare, but I wouldnt take my family again, or even recommend for other families if the children dont have pretty cultured palettes. Sausages, Sauerbraten, and Schnitzel may not be any easy sell.

“Not My Cup of Tea”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2013

I came to Biergarten with my family and was not very impressed. To make it easy to understand, the only good tasting food was macaroni and cheese. Everything was very different tasting and I would not recommend it to anyone who does not crave or love German food. The food was not good, but the show and music was wonderful and just created an excellent atmosphere for everyone.

“Great atmosphere, fun, good food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2013

Had reservations, but still waited about 30 minutes for table. Nice show, daughter loved it, even kept asking about it after the band stopped playing. Food was great, if you like German you definitely won't leave hungry!

“Total German experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2013

Great food, great beer options and even German entertainment. The band announced my birthday and then sang Happy Birthday in German to me. Truly memorable experience!

“Great atmosphere, okay food.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2013

The title says it at all. We enjoyed a show by their in house Oktoberfest band and they added a lot of excitement. The food on the buffet was tasty but there weren't as many options as I anticipated. There were only two kinds of sausage and one dish of sauerkraut (I don't know why I was expecting more?) and some additional sides that didn't really stand out. The cheese & beer soup was excellent, though!
