We ate here in the early afternoon on the day we arrived at WDW. We shared the Grilled Banana Bread Sundae with Peanut Butter. It was really good. We were interested in trying the Boozy Shakes, or the Adult Root Beer Float, but decided on the sundae instead. I was happy with the decision.

Pros:

Sundaes, Decor, Alcoholic Shakes

Cons:

Small

We ate here on our last night of a 12 night vacation....it was great. This is an extremely small restaurant so book early if you want to dine here. Great spot for burgers/shakes and a bit of fun. I had a very simple grilled cheese, and tomato bisque that tasted just amazing after many restaurant meals, it was a taste of home :). We saw many amazing ice cream concoctions, but we were just too full to try them.
Our only issue was a screaming child, that continued for most of our visit, but that is not the fault of the restaurant.

Pros:

food

Cons:

very small

What a brilliant night we had at Beaches and Cream. Brian our server was excellent, made us welcome, gave us plenty of time to look at the menu.
I had the burger and my wife had the hot dog. Both were delicious and freshly cooked. We shared a massive banana split as dessert.
You also get the excitement of people trying the Kitchen sink which is announced each time. It includes a whole can of whipped cream....A WHOLE CAN!!!

Pros:

Service and atmosphere

Cons:

None

We ate here for the first time other than drinks to go in many, many years. We didn't have an ADR for lunch but they got us right in at opening and sat us at the counter, right in front of where the sundaes are made which was so fun. One member of our party got a standard grilled cheese, one got a cheeseburger and I got the turkey sandwich. It had cranberry jalapeño jam and fried onions and was delicious. Our server was wonderful and refilled our drinks in to go cups when we were done without us asking him to do so. The day before we got a No Way Jose to go for a snack and it. Was. AMAZING. If you don't get a meal here, at least give it a try for the ice cream and fun atmosphere.

Pros:

Food, Service, Atmosphere

Cons:

None

Have been here before and always had a good meal. Note the last post and certainly agree the room is small and this does tend to them always running late. The recent refurb of this area would have done better to have expanded this popular restaurant.
The burgers etc are excellent here, yes they are a little pricey, but no more so than elsewhere in Disney which has always overcharged a largely captive market. However, unlike other Disney offerings this place actually provides good food for the money - a rarity in the land of the mouse.
The deserts are a little too sweet for our taste but that is probably an English view as I noticed that there always seemed to be a kilo of sugar in everything!

Pros:

Great burgers

Cons:

Room size, always running late

Read so many good reviews and we always like to try something new on our trips, so we tried here. ONLY redeeming points for us was that the ice cream was good. We had adr for dinner on July 2nd. Waited outside for half an hour past our reserved time. While waiting, determined that we would never want to stay at this resort due to the amount of crazy kids running wild while their parents were here and there drinking wine and watching golf. Very non-Disney feeling for me here. Anyway, after being seated we couldn't believe the prices for burgers and dogs! We just decided to skip it all and just get the ice cream, which was very tasty. The room itself is soooo tiny. You are seated at tiny tables where all the people standing in line for ice cream stare at you. I don't know where all the good reviews come from. My guess is people on the dining plan that don't look at the prices for the food. Don't get it and would not go back. Sorry.

Pros:

ice cream is yummy

Cons:

waaayyy overpriced fast food, ambience is non Disney, tiny room

We came here with one thing in mind.....the Kitchen Sink. This is located in the Disney Beach Club Resort, which is about a 5-10 minute walk from the back side of EPCOT, leaving through the entrance to the World Showcase by Canada. Well, mistakes were made.....we just finished our huge meal at the Biergarten and walked here for some ice cream. Once we arrived, we saw the size of the actual "Kitchen Sink" which was HUGE! luckily, they have a smaller version which is the "Mini Kitchen Sink" Still, this is a very large portion of ice cream and all the toppings. My family of 4 shared this with plenty to go around. A bonus of ordering this smaller version is you get to keep the "sink" which has now become my cereal bowl at home. The smaller version has 3 large scoops of ice cream along with everything else you can imagine on top of it. The price is a little steep, after all, it is Disney. The Mini version cost us $24.49 but the experience and seeing a different resort was worth it. Another bonus of going here was that we were planning on going to Hollywood Studios after we were done and we're able to take a boat from that location to HS. I'd recommend going here, but be hungry and like ice cream.

Pros:

Kitchn Sink

Cons:

very small, don't expect to sit inside during peak season

This was the first time trying this place. We went in knowing it was a glorified Quick Service restaurant.
We ordered the grilled cheese and tomato bisque, an Angus burger, and the chicken sandwich. All of the food was average tasting and the presentation was sloppy.
The server was almost nonexistent. We went for long periods without our drinks being refilled and two of the three of us had water.
The ice cream selections we had were very good. The next time we go we will probably order ice cream at the window.

Pros:

Good Ice Cream

Cons:

Food Is Just OK

Stopped here for ice cream and there happened to be space at the "bar". The second time I stopped for dinner and there were lots of open tables, but they were waiting to seat people on a waitlist. I love this place, but really think that changing to reservations was a really bad idea and they are not very good at it. That being said, their ice cream treats are awesome.

Even though we had reservations, we had to wait almost 30 minutes. Hostess was down right hostile and could smile and was pretty rude. Dinner was greasy and just OK. Ice cream and milk shakes were delicious. We were a party of 4 seated at a tiny table that couldn't hold all of our glasses and plates, they sat 2 parties of 3 at the booths next to us. They should rethink their seating arrangements. If I had know I would have gotten dinner to go and sat by the pool where there was plenty of room. Would not recommend, get the take out ice cream!

Pros:

Very cute, like an old fashion ice cream parlor

Cons:

Hostess was rude, tables tiny, very loud
