Lunch - sit-down restaurants on the Magic?

Are there sit-down restaurants open for lunch on the Magic? On 2 prior cruises we never had lunch, other than on Castaway Cay . We grabbed some chicken fingers by the pool, but never sat down for a real lunch. On our upcoming 8-night cruise, I'd like to have a nice lunch. Is there a restaurant open for table-service, or is it all buffet-style at lunch? Thanks!

Lumiere's is open for sit-down table service. and Parrot Cay does a buffet, you will be seated by head server, and your drink order is taken by a server (not necessarily your one from dinner) and then you go to the buffet.

The menu at Lumiere's for lunch does vary a little, but it's pretty much the same day to day. The buffet at Parrot Cay serves the same items that Topsider's does (but not as many).

Of course, lunch in Serenity Bay is much better than Cookies... Good option for adults for lunch while still at the beach in CC.

We had lunch probably 4 times at Lumiere's during our recent cruise. Very relaxing! And it was never very crowded.

We've found the menu in Lumiere's to be different each day...at least to the extent that there were a minimum of 4 menus that then repeated. You can also order "off menu." For example, you can get a chicken caesar salad even when not on the menu.

I guess we've just managed to hit Lumiere's when the same menu was served
