The Garden Grill does not serve rice any more. They were very attentive and did not give us any less attention for being childless diners. It’s also somewhat on the pricey side. Garden Grill is a family style "all you care to enjoy" restaurant. The official name of the character dinner at Garden Grill is “Chip ‘N’ Dale’s Harvest Feast,” so it should be no surprise that two of the characters present are Chip and Dale. But this is a good character meet and greet: Mickey as a farmer, Chip n’ Dale, who are always fun, and Pluto. I’ve read on this blog (and others) that it isn’t rotating consistently. I went to Garden Grill on my last morning in Disney for the character breakfast before heading to the airport. For drinks they have coffee, milk, and an array of juices. My name is Cori. Thanks for the update, and thanks for the honesty about not feeling comfortable eating indoors in Florida. It was prob the best food we ate that week but so uncomfortable I wouldn’t want to go back. By contrast, most buffets have so many options that not liking a couple of things really makes no difference. While I loved the food at this restaurant it was very small especially for family style. Sarah preferred the sustainable fish, which was very good for all you can eat fare, but not as good as an average plate you’d order from a standard table service restaurant. What’s the rotation status of Garden Grill these days? It’s also a family style restaurant, so the options are limited as compared to a buffet. The sides were all okay, but definitely could have been better. Definitely too bad about Mickey’s Backyard BBQ–you’re right, that’d be perfect now! But the meat and other sides were better than we expected. Thanks! I was hoping they would do breakfast from say 9 am to 11 am, since EPCOT opens at 11 am, but no such luck. Overall, Garden Grill still gets reasonably high marks, especially if you want an all-you-can-eat character meal with approachable and crowd-pleasing cuisine. This means if you don’t like one or two things, you’ve potentially eliminated a lot of what you can eat. I feel like people would feel more comfortable dining outside right now! We do not plan on returning to Garden Grill and due to WDW re-opening restrictions do not recommend to anyone. I’m still bummed I’m not able to give a review based on having gotten back just a couple of weeks ago; We took our kid there for his first WDW trip after he “graduated” from kindergarten, and were going to take him this year after his high school graduation. It used to be The Good Turn Restaurant, and before that it was The Land Grille Room. And the characters came around many times. I first want to touch on having a breakfast reservation before park opening. No complaints. Tom is right, the one major weakness is that the menu is limited. On top of that it also serves food with ingredients from the Living with the Land greenhouse. Required fields are marked *. Upon leaving I did ask to speak with a manager who told me she was sorry and my input will help make a better experience for others. I tried a guava juice that was SO good. This gives you the opportunity to see different views, including views of Living with the Land which is below the restaurant. We enjoy seeing the characters but we say a quick hello, snap a picture, and are ready to move on, which they were able to pick up on. That’s not to say the character version is worse (I don’t recall our meals at The Land Grille Room, so I’m not qualified to make that judgment), it’s just different. Otherwise, Garden Grill has fairly bland ambiance, without much in the way of decor.

Note that it can take characters a long time to get to your table at Garden Grill, but this is because they seem to spend a decent amount of time at each table.

Ample Hills Closed Permanently at Disney World, India Booth Menu & Review: 2019 Epcot Food & Wine Festival. Not the best, but not the worst, either. Nor is it quite as ambitious (or delicious) as Tusker House or Boma. In all likelihood, we will not be doing the modified Garden Grill character dining experience when Epcot opens. We’ve gone there every trip we’ve made and have always enjoyed the food and the atmosphere. Discounting them would be like saying “if you take away the stunning views and open air kitchen, California Grill’s ambiance isn’t so special.” The fact that it rotates and has views into an attraction is what defines the ambiance of Garden Grill. I cannot say enough good things about her 10/10. And the last time I was there in February there was no fish I think ham instead. While you aren’t getting anything extravagant when it comes to food, the service and character interactions certainly elevate the experience.
