We love Captains Grill for Breakfast at the Yacht club....great food never crowded excellent value.

Tusker gets my vote for lunch and/or dinner
DH loves Cape May for dinner

Trails End is another good buffet value at breakfast and dinner....not as many different things as the other places but always plenty.....less expensive than the other dinner buffets and not crowded....a nice getaway at the end of the day.

My favorite is Coronado Springs Resort Pepper Market. It is a buffet at breakfast and lunch. At least it was when we were there in January. The breakfast was every bit as good as Crystal Palace and it only counts as a counter service.

We love Cape May and Biergarten for dinner. For breakfast I think Boma is tops. For value the buffets at Pepper Market can't be beat if you're on a dining plan. A great buffet for a counter service credit.

Boma is our favorite!

We have been to Cape May as well. I would suggest that if you do Cape May, don't get there within 90 minutes of closing time. The food had really lost it's freshness by then--most things were overcooked. I imagine, though, that this would potentially be the case at just about any buffet.
A house without a dog is just a shelter. Wag more; bark less

I've eaten at 66 out of 245 restaurants at Walt Disney World (27%)

Cape May is certainly near the top of any list!

My favorite is Boma (for either breakfast or dinner). My husband loves Cape May though.

For value, I'd say the Pepper Market over at CSR for lunch. It's a CS credit if you are on the DDP and I believe $17.99 (including beverage) if you pay OOP.

LOL One of the reasons I did not like Cape May was that it was NOT easy to get to from CBR....a bus ride , a boat ride, and then walking around.
I think the buffets at parks or monorail resorts are easiest to get to.

When we are in WDW and are paying OOP, we always visit Trails End. There is an AP and/or DVC discount (though I can't remember which) which can save a few dollars. We love the food there.

Our favorite buffet restaurants are Boma and Cape May. Though the cost has been creeping up each year - so we have limited our last few visits to our (free) dining plan trips.
