“Appalling cooked food”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 20, 2013 via mobile

In the words of my son - the burger was "disgusting" - and the fries were limp. The Hawaiian flat bread tasted like the cardboard box it must have just been taken out of straight from the freezer. Hugely over priced, but it is a captive audience. For a hotel that costs as much as this one does, I expected all the small details - even the "grab and go" - to be up to a better standard.

“Great for grab and go.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 18, 2013

This is a great place to stop over if you want to eat outside by the pool or in your room. The food is pretty good, but it's buffet style so you probably want to eat somewhere else. Yes. they do have Dole Whip and Tonga Toast, also for carry-out. I think we tried a bit of everything and it was all good.

“Best Cafe in WDW”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 10, 2013

From the flatbread pizzas, to the burgers and fries, to the cheese plates, and the red velvet cupcakes. This is my favorite cafe in all of WDW!

“Solid counter service food with some variety”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 8, 2013

During our stay at the Polynesian, we had lunch at Captain Cook's. Our kids got their typical burgers and chicken nuggets. My wife had the Polynesian Salad which she thorougly enjoyed and I had the pork nachos which were very tasty. They have dole whips here too. We didn't get as we had had them at Disney's Vero Beach earlier in the week. Disney has improved on their counter service options and you definitely find something here to your liking.

“Food is decent - Dole Whip is Delicious!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 6, 2013

The convenience of this counter service is what makes this place worth the while. The Poly nachos and salad were delicious. The burger was not good, but perhaps it was only one incident. The Dole Whip is fill your cup as high as you want and delicious! I found this was a good place to grab a snack, but wouldn't recommend for a meal. The staff was friendly and in Poly theme. Do go for the Dole Whip!
