The service was slow, the order was mixed up and did I mention the three different people who brought out the order had no clue what they were serving to whom and which one was gluten free? And do I mention how slow a lunch was served in an empty dining room at two in the afternoon? Perhaps a romantic dinner would be better for this venue. W

It was the best of breakfasts - it was the worse of dinners.

We ate breakfast here twice. None of the buffet or nothing nonesense some places inflict on you. Nice room. Great menu choices - great prices - great service. Especially the French Toast - pancakes and special brew coffee. 5 stars.

Came once for dinner and it was awful. Oven roasted oysters that did not seem to have any actual oysters in them. Roasted shrimp were fine. Bread at $12 is ridiculous. Smoked short rib was pretty awful - doubly so as they shred Brussels spouts into the mashed potatoes. A pile of lifeless arugula was supposed to be a side salad I guess.

Our neighbors ordered T Bone steaks and were equally disappointed.

12 layer cake for dessert was excellent.

Service was quite poor. Our waiter while charming went missing most of the meal. Our bottle of wine arrived AFTER our starters were done and main courses had arrived.

This restaurant has good bones and can be a success. The owners and chefs need to take a hard look at what they are sending out and up their game.

There you have it - great & awful all under one roof.

The breakfast menu I found had interesting items. Of course they have your bacon and eggs too. The cornmeal waffles were very good. I was told that the steak sandwich was really good(coming from a picky eater). Wait staff as always at Disney are very cordial. For sure worth a try especially if your staying at this Disney resort.

The scrod was near perfect, could have eaten more, though. The oven roasted little necks were tasty.......wish they had steamers on the menu....prices were probably average for Disney... We will be back....

This is by far one of the best if not the best resort restaurant on Disney property! The food is great, the staff are absolutely amazing, and it has a great atmosphere! We have been on a trip to Disney for almost a week and have eaten here four times for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. They all were great experiences and had a great selection of food items to choose from, even for our picky eater, they accommodate for their guest and have great Staff! Jamie, Tom, and Matt were amazing! They really care about their tables and we’re so pleasant to chat with. The manager Michael also greeted every table and treated everyone like family. I could go on and on about this place but I think you should definitely try it for yourself, you won’t be disappointed!
