For lunch you do not need an ADR, although some people have been able to snag lunch ADRs in a special email sent out.

Lunch

We are going to try lunch here in November as dinner is already completely booked. Hope we don't find it too busy at lunchtime.

My DD and I went for lunch yesterday at 12:30. I had planned on getting there earlier or later but it didn't work out. I was surprised that it was just a 20 minute wait. It was so hot so it felt like much longer. The CM's monitoring the line were great and had ice water and golf umbrellas for everyone to keep people cool in the line.

The restaurant is beautiful. Sitting by the window is a great view of the restaurant, snow and is fairly isolated and quieter. The food's not great. I've had the pork meal (too salty and heavy for me) and tried the turkey sandwich (not bad) but this time we found no meal we would want so we ordered lighter. We had onion soup, potato leek soup, and a chocolate, strawberry and lemon meringue cupcake. The onion soup was sadly terrible. It was flavorless hot water with a good deal of soggy bread and unmelted cheese. We both love onion soup, tried one spoonful and didn't go back. The potato leek was good. The chocolate cupcake was rich but very good. The other two cupcakes really not great. I've learned it's not about the food. I think everyone should see the new castle. We loved the experience but will not be going back to eat there again. Twice was enough.

Boy am I happy to read this - not that you all didn't enjoy the food but I thought I was missing on a dinner ADR and when I had decided to do lunch. Now I am thinking this could be a hit or miss thing. So have left it on the lunch schedule and am prepared to have mediocre food but to be sure to check out the ambiance. Thanks!

Check out TripAdvisor's photos & reviews, lots of great info there on the restaurant & photos of the different dishes.

I know BOG isn't character dining, but I just wondered if there were any Photopass opportunities at the restaurant?

We had the FP+ lunch and loved it. A wonderful, healthier option in the middle of the day. We had the turkey and roast beef sandwiches and the pork.

If you have dinner there, you can take photos with the Beast in the library after dinner. There is a photo pass photographer and the handler also used my camera.

To be honest, I have read a number of mediocre reviews regarding the food. My wife and I have reservations for Dinner to primarily experience the ambiance and to take some pictures. If the food is somewhat decent I will be pleasantly surprised.

Well, at least that's good to know! Characters usually dictate the majority of our schedule, so this will be music to my son's ears!
Now, if only the chef's game improves...!
