Knowing that our park visit time was going to be busy, we made reservations far in advance. When we arrived at 7 PM, no one was in the room! Needless to say, we were wondering if it was going to be a big mistake. Well,...More

This is a huge restaurant and, as such, seems to be popular with large tour groups. I wanted to eat here because it was next door to the fabulous Holiday Inn Express, where I was staying. I was turned away the first night, so I...More

This is an OK restaurant, but I think some of the reviews overrate it. We had a nice dinner here. My wife had a mozzarella and tomato starter and then Ono (a fish). I had crab cakes and a special King salmon main course. Both...More

Beautiful dining room with plush furniture/decor. The food and service were top-notch. They took special attention to their food presentation - had a rack of ribs that was as high as Angels Landing that we had hiked earlier in the day!

We made our reservations for 3 on the same day. I made it through Open Table. We were there the week after the Forth of July. If the park is really busy you might have to make it a few days before. I hope that helps.

It is summer time and families are traveling. We visited in June and although it was busy, we were seated quickly. It is best to make reservations during Spring Break and summer.
