PCH Grill is now a non-character buffet for dinner. We decided to stop in on the night we arrived, walking over from the Grand Californian.
PCH Grill was very quiet - the entire time we were there it was no more than 20% full. It made for a nice change of pace from the hectic crowds everywhere else on a hot July day.
My wife is very lactose-intolerant, which causes issues in many places. Disney has tended to handle this by going to the other extreme, treating her as dairy-allergic and giving her the gluten-free, dairy-free, nut-free, taste-free substitutes.
Here, the sous chef came over and walked her through the entire buffet. They discussed what she could and what she could not eat. She came back to the table thrilled - among other things, she could eat dessert; there was a berry crisp, and the homemade marshmallows were also clear.
The buffet was as good as or better than most Disney buffets I've been to - highlights included carved-to-order tri-tip, fish tacos, and a tasty mozzarella and tomato salad. For kids, there were cheeseburger sliders, mini hot dogs, pizza, and macaroni and cheese.
The dessert buffet included the aforementioned berry crisp, and the marshmallows were part of a make-your-own-s'more with graham crackers and warmed chocolate sauce. In addition, there were make-your-own strawberry shortcake, some small tarts, and mousse in small ice cream cones.
Service was attentive, although that may have just been because it was so quiet.
Overall, we were very pleased, and will be looking into returning here on our next trip.
Pros:Quiet, well-stocked buffet with many interesting items

We had a reservation for 5:30pm on 5/20/14. There was only one other couple in the place. Imelda was our server. To start, we split the Spinach and Artichoke Dip, which was the best I've had in a long time. It was topped with red peppers which I didn't care for, but it was easy to pick around that.
For the entrees, I chose the Shrimp Mac n Cheese. Very good, particularly with the bread crumbs, but I didn't realize the sauteed veggies were in the pasta, thought they were going to be on the side. Ended up picking them out. My friend had the strip loin and loved it . For dessert, I ordered the Ice Cream Sliders. So yummy, especially the caramel sauce dip! It was a fairly expensive meal and the food was just so-so.
