“Breakfast buffet”
Reviewed January 31, 2013

As part of our Swan breakfast package through AAA we enjoyed the breakfast buffet at the Swan's Garden Grove restaurant. Fresh omelets are available, as well as hot and cold cereals, pastries, bagels pancakes, waffles - a great selection. One would not leave hungry!

“Became our "go to" restaurant”
Reviewed January 20, 2013

We liked this breakfast and dinner buffet so much that we ate more then half our meals here. They do not accept Disney meal plan but we didn't opt for that anyway. Very nice servers with a wonderful variety of good, good food.

“Good food and good value”
Reviewed January 18, 2013

We have been going to Swan & Dolphin for years but just discovered the Garden Grove this past May. The location is tucked away at the end of a hall so it isn't readily seen. Food is one of the better buffets for quality. Staff is attentive and friendlly, kudos to Shirley,Bruce, Sue, Micah, and Robert. Can always get a seat quickly as it doesn't seem to be well promoted by management. if you're not staying at Swan or Dolphin be sure to ask for a parking voucher when you pay your bill. They are available but apparently they are top-secret. Another point managment could turn to the restaurant's advantage but doesn't. Best bang for the buck on property.Definitely the best breakfasts too.

“Exceptional experience with the characters, decent food”
Reviewed January 7, 2013

We had a great time at this restaurant. We went to an early dinner and the characters did a great job of spending time with our daughter. The food was decent as it was buffet style and the service was very attentive. All in all, I would recommend for a family with younger childern who are looking for a memorable character experience. Price was very reasonable...believe it is normally $30 for adult. For New Years Eve, it was around $50 per person.
