My husband and I were excited to take our 3 years old son and 5 years old daughter to dine with their favorite characters! The ambiance was absolutely amazing. The food was delicious you can feel like you are eating in a fine dining restaurant without you paying the fine dining prices. Our server Joseph was outstanding he kept checking... More

First of all, I just wanted to say that the Swan Hotel, where the Garden Grove is located, is charming as hell! Specially if you go there by boat, it makes the whole experience even more special! I went here to have breakfast and was really happy with it! The staples are here: pancakes, bacon and etc! Also, a nice... More

We had dinner at the Garden Grove restaurant on our last evening at Disney and it was fabulous! Our grandson loved meeting Chip and Dale,and Mickey! Great to see the different climates and be able to explain them to him. Wonderful food!

This is the main restaurant at the Swan, serving breakfast, lunch and dinner. The very Disney decor features a big tree in the middle of the restaurant with hanging lanterns. The big draw is the Weekend Disney Character Buffet. (Adults $24.99 Children 3 - 9 $15.99, includes Starbucks coffee and Orange Juice) Present on a Sunday morning were Chip &... More

There are no appetizers on the dinner menu and only 4 choices for entrees. They do have a salad bar that has limited options. The soup bar had two options and the Clam Chowder that was offered was excellent. They did have fresh breads with several spread options. I ordered the Prime Rib for dinner and it was okay. Another... More

I was really excited about this restaurant, but was a bit disappointed. The food was good, but the choices were limited and only having soup and salad as appetizer course was just too restrictive. The salad bar was EXTREMELY limited in choice. They need to talk to someone about this. Seems way overpriced for what you get.

We have been returning to the Garden Grove for breakfast for the past 4 years. Every year we request to be seated with server, Marcy S. She is exceptional and makes us feel like a part of the family. It's like coming to visit an old friend every time we dine there.

Had a nice lunch here with a friend. We had two sandwiches (I the Rueben, he the Philly), with fries. The food was very good and we enjoyed the meal. Service was a little slow but not a bad place to meet someone for a lunch meeting. Can't comment on breakfast or dinner.
