Justin, our waiter, did an excellent job explaining the menu and answering questions. 5 of us enjoyed the Shrimp cocktail and cheese offering. It was tasty and quick. Three of us ordered the chicken and my son & I got the most delicious and popular shrimp & grits. The chicken was most and flavorful and the Shrimp & grits was... More

They say grand Floridian but if you like the architecture, go to New Orleans. Wait, you have kids? Never mind. The whole place is what the grand old south used to look like. We choose the place because they also have if I remember correctly the mad hatter tea party. Awesomeness. They never missed a beat. It was one of... More

Although the breakfast menu is not extensive, the charm, ambiance, and incredible hospitality at Grand Floridian Cafe made our Sunday breakfast very memorable. I enjoyed the Grand Floridian Breakfast, a sampling of eggs, hash brown casserole, and tasty breakfast meats. The pancakes looked terrific (pardon my wandering eyes to the next table), and I'll try them next time. Our server,... More

A very delightfully Victorian themed restaurant with a diverse menu and A plus service. We enjoyed breakfast with Bloody Marys that were delicious. I enjoyed a Lobster Eggs Benedict that was prepared to perfection and my wife has a Vegetable Quiche that was equally prepared. The entrees weren't overly priced and sides are available; we shared a couple of pastries... More

In the past I would have described our dining experiences at The Grand Floridian Café as great but it is still a nice place for breakfast, lunch or dinner. The menu offers a variety of dinner entrees in addition to burgers, salads and sandwiches served in a pretty turn of the century atmosphere. The service was attentive, the food was... More

I had eaten here on previous stays at the Grand Floridian, and remembered it as quite nice. However it seems as though they have significantly reduced the menu, and what was served as underwhelming, and poorly presented. Certainly not what I would expect from a luxury hotel restaurant.

We went for breakfast one morning before Magic Kingdom. The food was good but the service was slow. Even with a 7:30 reservation our food did not come until 8:10. Not a good option with kids due to the long wait for the food.

We have been at the Grand Floridian Cafe for lunch and had a wonderful experience. The food was delicious and the service was very good. So we decided to go for breakfast. The French toast was very good. I ordered a poached egg with bacon with a salad and didn't realize that the bacon was mixed into the salad with... More

I thought the food was good, but there is clearly a problem with Disney, their restaurants, and the reservation system. After having encountered 2 different situations with 2 different restaurants, claiming to have been booked, when they weren't, we tried to get a table at this cafe, only to be told that you had to have a reservation, as they...
