      Caveat - ALL Disney food is ridiculously overpriced. You have to go in expecting that. Don't expect $100 at Disney to get you what $100 outside the World would get you. $100 in the World gets you 4 $10-12 cocktails, 2 entrees, and 1 appetizer. The quality level to expect is Applebees/Chilis/Olive Garden/Denny's. (For quick service you should expect high school cafeteria.) If that's your expectation, you'll come out happy.

      I was at Disney World for a girl's weekend, doing the Wine & Dine Half Marathon. My friend and I ate here both nights. Neither time did we have or need an ADR. The first night we had just gotten in from the airport, and after the two hour drive to the airport, the flight, the magical express bus from the airport and then the internal shuttle bus, at 9pm, we just couldn't bring ourselves to take more buses to get to Downtown Disney where I had an ADR at Raglan Road. So we cancelled that and ate here.

      The restaurant was never full, but we did eat later in the evening both nights, so maybe closer to 6pm it might have more occupied tables.
      Our server the first night was Gilberto. He was amazing and really made the experience for us. We were very disappointed the second night not to get him - our service the second night was terrible.

      I have to eat gluten free - Gilberto brought me gluten free rolls before the meal without me even asking (that is very unusual to get bread with the ordinary folks, so it always makes a big impression). Our cocktails were excellent. (Captain Banana, Caribbean Smuggler, Truffle Martini, Chocolate Martini)

      Basically, the food was fine. I would be happy to receive what we did from Applebees, and it was absolutely up to that standard. Up to the standard of a $30 plate at a fine dining restaurant? Of course not. This is Disney.

      Over the course of the two nights we tried the Caesar Salad ($5.49), Shutters Salad ($5.99), Char-crusted 10 ounce New York Strip Steak ($29.99), and Pasta Piquant ($18.99, with gluten free pasta). I was told that the Caribbean Braised Boneless Beef Short Ribs could not be made gluten free, but they would have been able to adapt the Carved Bone-in Pork or the Strip Steak if I had chosen those. All were fine. My friend had the Chocolate Rum Blackberry Cake ($7.99) and enjoyed it... they didn't have anything they could do as a gluten free dessert.

      The portion sizes were huge, so the second night we just went with cocktails, appetizer salads, and dessert, and it was just the right amount of food... and a much more reasonable bill. Given how crazy-expensive entrees are and how massive portion sizes are at Disney, if you eat moderately, I recommend this strategy for dining at Disney if you don't have the dining plan.
