'Ohana, which means "family," gets high marks from our readers. The food is good but not superior, but if you love meat and you go hungry, it's a great place to fill up. The method of service and the fact that it just keeps coming make it all taste a little better. Insist on being seated in the main dining room, where the fire pit is.
Setting and Atmosphere
A large open pit is the centerpiece of the room. Here the grilled foods are prepared with flair - as well as flare: from time to time the chef will pour some liquid on the fire, causing huge flames to shoot up. This is usually in response to something one of the strolling entertainers has said, evoking a sign from the fire gods. At any given moment, there may be a hula-hoop contest or a coconut race, where kids are invited to push coconuts around the dining room with broomsticks. During nighttime spectaculars at the Magic Kingdom, the lights inside 'Ohana will dim and the music of the particular show will play throughout the restaurant while guests enjoy the fireworks displays through the large glass windows facing Cinderella's Castle.
Skewer service is the specialty here-there's no menu. As soon as you're seated, your server will begin to deliver food. First comes the 'Ohana pineapple-coconut bread and vegetarian lettuce wraps, followed by honey-glazed chicken wings and pork fried dumplings. The main course is steak, pork loin, and grilled peel-and-eat shrimp, accompanied by stir-fried vegetables and lo mein noodles placed on a lazy Susan in the center of the table. Dessert is a delicious, and humongous, slice of bread pudding served with ice cream and bananas-caramel sauce.
