The best kept dining secret is this place! For a little more than a burger and fries plate you can get real home cooking. Grilled fish, chicken and other healthier choices. A word of caution, though they tend to overspice the food. My green beans had too much black pepper and I could not eat them. Ask for a sample first.
With more options than any other quick-service in WDW, this is a great place for the family with picky eaters. Ample seating, coupled with good, healthy food rounds this out to be a great stop for lunch.
We arrived at 5 pm- just in time for most of the children nearby to line up & bang tambourines & scream while joining cast members to a dance (if you dig hideously loud "the chicken dance" & "the hokey pokey", you are in luck).
I was willing to ignore that & just carry on with ordering, since I had good experiences here this year. Bad experience after bad experience here:
1) The Mongolian beef looked & tasted like it had been sitting out for quite some time. & the accompanying jasmine rice was lukewarm.
2) Husband asked the woman behind the station with baked chicken a few basic questions (i.e. what does this come with?) and she would only point to items. When he asked if he could sub mashed potatoes as a side, he was met with a blank stare.
He opted for the tomato/veggie soup- it was greasy & "nasty" according to DH.
3) Out of the 3 cold drink/soda stations, only one had a working ice dispenser and two had no coke or diet coke.
I went back for a refill & the manager acted like I had told her that the sky was blue when I told her about the drink machines. Sad, sad, sad.
Living With The Land boat ride is near some of the seating. The food is very fresh, especially the salads, fruit, and vegetables! This is the place to eat if you want healthy food, and a variety of choices. There is plenty of seating available, but beware of peak lunch and dinner times. It is clean. The condiments are in a strange place, away from the beverage soda fountains, which seemed unusual. It is quite loud. Since Soarin' is in the same area (ground floor), there are quite a few people to maneuver around. Overall, the food is Disney World's finest when it comes to quick service!
