Biergarten has been highly rated by our readers for many years. It's not the best buffet in Walt Disney World (that'd be Boma at the Animal Kingdom Lodge), but the food is good enough - especially if you like meat - and there's plenty of it. The lively 25-minute dinner show (one every hour) and noisy dining room are part of the fun, especially for families. And kids love the place.
Setting and Atmosphere
Biergarten is a hefty German buffet set inside a nighttime Teutonic town square. You’re seated at long tables lined up in rows along a half-circle, as if emanating like moon rays, in front of a central dance floor and stage.
The buffet is located directly across from the stage, in the center-front of the restaurant. To keep crowds low, the buffet is duplicated on either side of the hall's center - the same food is served on both sides, with desserts in the middle.
A lederhosen-clad oompah band plays and encourages diners to sing and dance. If you were not aware that "The Chicken Dance" is a traditional Bavarian folk tune, you will be after this. (Note to the band: we'd pay good money to hear a polka version of "99 Luftballons.")
Just as in the real Germany, table space is assigned community-style, so you may be seated with other families.
Beet salad, various sausages, homemade spaetzle with gravy, nudelgratin (baked macaroni with cheese custard), and sauerbraten. There’s also carved-to-order pork roast with German mustard and breaded pork schnitzel.
Rouladen (thinly sliced beef rolled and stuffed with onions), braised red cabbage, potato dumplings (dinner only), and German grapefruit beer. Vegetarians will find plenty of vegetable and salad options. Vegans might consider dining elsewhere.
