Summary

Skipper Canteen has fresh flavors and fine service. The menu decidedly doesn't cater to simpler tastes and aims higher than it can sometimes achieve, but any in-park restaurant that identifies its fish option as “not piranha” is OK in our book.

Setting and Atmosphere

Posited as the home of off-duty Jungle Cruise skippers, Skipper Canteen offers guests an oasis from the theme park with three distinct dining rooms (and a boatload of corny jokes). The crew’s mess hall features high ceilings, dark wooden fixtures, and souvenirs collected from skippers’ travels bathed in stained glass window–tinted natural light. Behind a hidden bookcase (with highly amusing book titles), guests can visit the secret meeting room of the Society of Explorers and Adventurers, filled with posh fixtures, maps, and a beautiful collection of butterflies. The Jungle Room completes the dining set, with intimate seating near intricately carved wood bookshelves and colorful stained glass lamps.

House Specialties

The menu features flavors from several world cuisines, with Asian influences in the char siu pork (a house favorite) and Korean barbecue–inspired crispy fried chicken. Latin flavors make their way into the grilled steak with adobo, as well as the house-made corn pancakes topped with pork and avocado cream. The Kungaloosh! chocolate cake with caramelized bananas will close out any meal with a smile.

Other Recommendations

The pao de queijo cheese bread with dipping sauces. Plant-based dining is well represented here, with an emphasis on vegetables instead of “fake meat.” Even the kids’ menu satisfies across the board. The one dessert worth ordering is the Kungaloosh!
