Located in the heart of EPCOT, the Garden Grill provides a unique family-style meal. The food is served on platters for the whole table (unless you have allergies, of course!). The best part about Garden Grill is its homey, yet earthy crunch atmosphere. Mickey, Pluto, Chip, and Dale all come around to meet you in their farming attire. Since the restaurant is smaller than many other character dining options, you’ll receive extra attention! Also, the restaurant spins in a circle, providing you with a view of the Living With the Land attraction in EPCOT.
Garden Grill did a superior job at ensuring my meal was free of all my allergies. Unfortunately, the red wine sauce on the beef and the lemon caper sauce on the turkey were not free of my allergies, so my meal was fairly bland. At other Disney dining establishments, chefs tend to spice up your keel with substitutions; however, since they serve the same platter of food to everyone that is much more difficult at the Garden Grill.
While Garden Grill has a great atmosphere, I would prefer to eat my character meal Chef Mickey’s. (Read my Chef Mickey’s blog post here.) For more information and to check the availability of the Garden Grill, visit https://disneyworld.disney.go.com/dining/epcot/garden-grill-restaurant/.
