Enjoyed a nice breakfast in the park here. I got the Mickey waffle with strawberries and that was good. My boyfriend got the chicken fried steak and really enjoyed his meal. The gravy was delicious. I would eat here again.

First thing is listen to everyone and make a reservation. The service is A1 the food is some of the best I have eaten. The choice between fruit and fries with some of the meals is a fantastic idea. The food was fresh the choices were plentiful I had the fried chicken and not one drop of grease on the... More

Traditional American fare. I enjoyed what is considered Walt's favorite meal, Chicken Fried Chicken and mashed potatoes with veggies. It was delicious. It's a restaurant with table service which is a nice change while in the park. Gives you time to relax and re-energize for seeing more of the park. It's also the only place inside the park that offers... More

As has been said, reservations are recommended. The restaurant has a quaint patio area that is outside but provides a "corralled group of tables". Their menu is sparse (a theme that carries through much of both parks), but has a couple homestyle options (Chicken-fried Chicken, Meatloaf, Mac & Cheese, etc). Portions were decent and food was on-par with other Disney... More

First thing first, make a reservation. It does get busy especially during the peak season. Breakfast is good and so is lunch, now you just have to decide which one you want most. For me, I prefer breakfast and I always go with the Eggs Benedict. So very good to that last bite, but save room for the cinnamon hot... More

Nice place for a soup and salad on Main Street if you have to eat in Disney. Used to be twice the size and had a much larger menu. Offer kids meals to. Sit down restaurant with servers. Prices are midrange. Kids can get Mickey Mouse shaped food in their meal option. Service is friendly and fine here.

Just like everything else that was involved with food in Disneyland, the food was barely mediocre and was ridiculously priced. We won't be doing it again.

Had dinner here on 14th January with my 8 year old grandson. We had a reservation, so we were seated within 5 mins of our arrival. Our waiter and waitress were attentive and efficient. I had wanted to try Walt's meatloaf so gave it a try. Nice serving size and quite tasty with the tangy, tomato glaze. My grandson had... More

This restaurant is a solid choice for breakfast or lunch with advanced reservations. The Main Street location is good, and both inside and outside seating provides a comfortable place to rest and enjoy a solid meal. Breakfast is standard -- eggs, pancakes, waffles, etc. -- but well done. Lunch, again, offers standard American fare -- burgers, sandwiches, fries -- prepared... More

This was one of the Disney restaurants where we booked ahead to make sure we would not have a wait time. I had noted a food allergy and the waitstaff and chef both talked to me to make sure that they were following my dietary instructions. There was a bit of confusion over one of the kids' sides ( there... More
