The Lucky Nugget Saloon - reviews

Restaurant is styled as a true Western Saloon, complete with a live band that you may be fortunate to see. The restaurant is located in Frontierland opposite Phantom Manor.
You'll find the Saloon right after Fort Comstock on your left hand side, before Phantom Manor.


As from Spring 2011 this restaurant no longer hosts a character meal.

We ate here for Christmas Day lunch - we had a 2.30pm seating but as we had rode BTMR much faster than expected (what an efficient fast pass system that ride has) we were half an hour early so we tried our luck with an earlier seating but no chance and they advised us to come back at 2.30pm so we had a look round the shop opposite - very busy though. When we went back, we were seated right away, but they were turning people away without reservations.

We were sat downstairs on the highest tier at the end of a row which wasn't so bad, even if a little squashed - we were close to the band who were playing Christmas carols.



Our server was nice enough but spoke no English at all - we came across a few CM's with little or no English this trip (which wasn't a major problem (except at the Blue Lagoon!)

The buffet itself was OK but I was hoping for a bit of turkey but no such luck. There was a decent selection of 'starters' but I thought that the hot food was a bit limited - I had some chilli but there was no rice - had been but had all gone and they hadn't topped up so I had nacho chips and salsa with this. The dessert selection was pretty good.

There seemed to be a few characters around but for some reason, only 4 came to our area in the time we were there. There always seemed to be a 'gaggle' of people following the characters round (adults as well as children) - only King John waved them away - good on ya ,mate.




The Lucky Nugget operate an odd system where you show them your paid bill on your way out - the girl on the door said our server shouldv'e told us as we didn't basically - caused a bit of a problem for DH as he had nipped to the loo and we have gone outside already. Our server wouldn't have told us as she couldn't speak English but when she came back with the change in the little folder, we left it *** it was her tip! Maybe it's customary not to tip in France.

We might try this restaurant again but not at such a busy time.

Christmas Day 2005

Then it was time for our Christmas lunch at the Lucky Nugget. This was absolutely brilliant and we had a wonderful time. We were a little hesitant to eat there again after our trip in August for although the food had been very enjoyable, we had a miserable server and we found that the characters missed our table out because they were constantly being mobbed by unruly kids and kept escaping backstage to safety. Anyhow, the only way we could get a character meal (that wasn't breakfast) in the park itself on Christmas Day was to book the Lucky Nugget. There is no way I could do Christmas Day at Disney without a character meal!



Anyhow this time it turned out to be wonderful. We were seated at one of the terraces overlooking the floor area rather than one of the tables, I will always ask to be seated here again as it is far less crowded than one of the tables. We saw our miserable server from last time, still looking as miserable as ever but we had a fantastic one this time. He really made our meal special and I have written to DLRP to commend him. The food was excellent and we even had crackers and the band played Christmas music!



It was very busy in there but everyone seemed to be on their best behaviour and were waiting for the characters to visit them at their table. We will definitely come here again although I don’t suppose they will be serving the lovely Christmas cocktails in the summer! The characters we saw were Minnie, Gepetto, Brer Fox, Friar Tuck, Pluto, Goofy, Eeyore and my fave (after Mickey) Robin Hood.






We eventually waddled out of here, I am ashamed to say I ate this whole plate of desserts without any trouble!

We dined here for a character lunch.
The restaurant is well themed and beautiful inside.
The buffet is well stocked, starters of salad, nachos and dips.
Main meals of chips, meatball, nuggets, fish, chilli, rice etc... I could go on
And the desserts...mmmmmm, ice cream, jelly, crepes & choc and plenty of gorgeous cakes.
Characters were very attentive, here are a few photos.
Daisy Duck

the band

DD and Genie

sorry no photos of food...too busy eating it...will try harder next time.

He He He Elaine.

We were seated right above the desert table and I just had to go back twice , .

DD8 went back for her 5th visit when I shouted down " step back from the puddings thats your 5th visit ". Said at the same time the band stopped playing music.

I had some really funny looks but most found it quite amusing as I went a lovely shade of strawberry and DD kept on filling her plate

I have to agree that for VFM and atmosphere The Lucky Nugget rocks

There were quite a few salad dishes but I'm not sure whether there was any meat/fish included in them. Perhaps someone else can remember??

LOL Kristina,

We did it the opposite way around - I planned to go to the Agrabah Cafe, but we went to the Lucky Nugget instead on Wednesday .

Its definitely worth a visit - lovely surroundings, good food, and fantastic character interaction, in a much less chaotic setting than Cafe Mickey (IMO).

Elaine we will most likely try it next time . Cafe Mickey was a bit too chaotic for us also, at least for dinner although we may try having breakfast there sometime.

We ate here on Sunday and it was very very busy, but to be honest every where was very very busy last weekend.

You have to try the "Phantom Manor" cocktail, I know I say this everytime, but this one is definately my favourite of all the ones I've tried so far and it's kind of spooky looking too, got a greeny/blue colouring to it. I actually remembered last minute to take some photos of the food, not the cocktail though I'll upload those later.
