Food was just average - should have saved dining credits & ate somewhere better - somewhat fun to watch kids having fun, but very obnoxious to dine here as a childless couple - waitress did not take social cues from us to back off with dramatic antics - super crowded restaurant - VERY LOUD

We have eaten here a few times but not since the menu change. That was a little disappointing. The food was good. We had a non meat eater in our party of 10 and they brought a pasta dish that they say was good. The desserts were ok. Our server was Jeffrey (from Miami) and he played the part very well.They still do the ketchup routine but unless you have kids its not needed. All in all I could skip this in the next few trips.
Pros:Party/wait staff interaction

Now that our kids are growing out of the character meals, we wanted to try something different. Had never been to Wilderness Lodge so it was fun to walk around and see geyser erupt on the 1/2 hour. Kids had fun playing with Lincoln logs before we were seated.
The atmosphere was fun. Loved asking for ketchup. But not the place to go if you are more serious or want a quiet meal. Kids had fun with pony rides.
Having never eaten here before, I didn't Know what they used to offer. I will agree that it was pretty limiting. We were on ddp and I don't like that they got rid of appetizer. We paid oop for one.
We had cornbread and app to start. Same yummy cornbread as Hoop De Do. They offered to bring all 6 meats, although the menu said they'd bring 3. We didn't try the chicken or sausage though. DD8 liked fish, pork was just ok, and ribs were dry. We all loved steak best. Mashed potatoes were good too. I loved the buckle. No other dessert offered. But barely had room for it. Left VERY full.
We are party of 5 and baby. This is first time a server hasn't charged us auto gratuity for being 6. And guess what, we gave him MORE!
Pros:Something different, fun atmosphere

This restaurant is a lot of fun, and there's certainly enough food to go around. The pony races for the kids were fun, but things got even better when the staff asked all the men in the restaurant to line up and sing "I'm a Little Teapot". The kids got to laugh at the adults and really got into the spirit of things afterwards.
The food was tasty and filling, and the server was happy to bring more of it when needed. My only complaint is that the new skillet menu is a bit limiting. I preferred the old menu.
Pros:Beautiful resort, fun atmosphere, good service
Cons:Limited choices with the new skillet menu

We have eaten here each time we visit WDW and looked forward to the great steaks and the creamy red bliss mashed potatoes. We didn't realize their had been a menu change and it was not a change for the better. The only entree choice was the family style skillet dinner which was not appetizing or enjoyable.
For dessert...jalapeÃ±o cheesecake??
Old saying..."If it ain't broke, don't fix it!"...why was a great menu changed?? We won't return until the menu changes back!!
Pros:Service was great; server was very responsive
Cons:Very disappointed with the entire meal

We ate at the Whispering Canyon in October and experienced the new menu. The service and food was great with the only drawback being it was way too much for all six of us to eat. We normally stay at the Wilderness Lodge and this is one of the places that it is a tradition for us to eat. We will surely maintain that tradition.
Pros:Great Service and Food
Cons:Too much food

We had eaten here our last time in the World and enjoyed it so we decided to give it another go. Had dinner here on 12/24/12. The endless milkshakes are great and we love the entertainment; yelling for ketchup, the pony races, watching someone get put in jail. However, I have to say that the food was only so-so. It's worth it if you have younger kids but as mine are now teenagers I should have chosen some place else for dinner
