We had a dinner ADR on 9/29 for 5pm. We arrived less than five minutes late to check in. The restaurant had just opened for dinner so it was definitely not full, but we were told to sit and we would be called when our table was ready-just a few minutes, but my mom felt they were "punishing" us for being late. I think she may have been over reacting a bit. 😉

I decided to do the dinner buffet and Mom chose the 10 oz New York Strip Steak entree.

We were brought a bread basket that included some mini Corn Muffins and a loaf of bread (I didn't try that one). The buffet options included green salad with toppings, rustic potato salad (very good), macaroni and cheese (had NO taste at all, was disappointed), chicken nuggets, salmon, chicken, herb crusted casino roast (delicious), mashed potatoes, green beans, penne pasta, and charred Nebraska corn chowder, among other things. It was all good but I don't think anything was outstanding.

My mom felt her strip steak was fatty but she enjoyed the mashed potatoes.

I tried several desserts from the buffet, including a mini cupcake, a S'Mores tart (chocolate was too rich and dense), a coconut cheesecake with key lime curd (just okay), and bread pudding with vanilla sauce (my mom liked it, I didn't, but I'm not a big fan of bread pudding in general).

This dinner was just okay, don't think I'd return anytime soon.


Decent buffet

Ate here with my family of four on 6/25 for the dinner buffet. Everything we ate tasted very good, however the selection was small. Carved turkey and roast beef, salmon, mashed potatoes, green beans, pizza, chicken nuggest, mac n cheese....just mixed greens for salad and also fresh fruit. The dessert selection was plentiful and also very tasty. Warm bread pudding was absolute wonderful with the vanilla creme sauce!

The wait staff was extremely attentive, which was a little surprising since we chose the buffet. Our waiter was particularly good with my teenagers, which won big points with me. We would definitely eat here again if we visit DL again.


Good food, attentive staff

StoryTeller's Café has always been a favorite place to rest after spending some time in the parks and enjoy some great food. However, today was a disappointment. My husband and I decided to have lunch and eat a medium hamburger and steak which in the past was served on an open sandwich. They changed their menu...very small portions. The steak was served on a huge plate 2 inches by 4 inches. No bread. The hamburger was raw with no condiments. Fries were medium warm, no pickle. No garnishment. Service was fair, nothing to comment about.

Disney has gone downhill in the food department. And why? Because they know they can. I doubt if I will be coming back to Storyteller's....cos I can!


Relaxing atmosphere
