It's fun. Food is consistent (not amazing, but solid and satisfying). Service has always been very friendly.

Le Cellier is on our "no" list. We've had better steaks at Outback, and for some reason this restaurant is always running way behind and the servers have always seemed rushed and geared mostly toward turning our table than quality of service.

Definitely Biergarten since Le Cellier raised their prices. We love Le Cellier and go just to have the filet mignon but I can't in good conscience spend over $40 for a steak so sadly we won't be going back for awhile. That is just me though. You get so much more food and fun at B too.

We are paying OOP this trip and chose to do lunch at Biergarten. We really enjoy the food and there are so many options. We were going to also do lunch at Le Cellier until they changed to the all day menu and now it's no longer worth it to us.

LC was my choice. Actually, I would choose any restaurant in WS over Biergarten, except maybe Nine Dragons. IMO, Biergarten is an avg. buffet with a band. I didn't find it any better than other buffets I've eaten at in & out of WDW. If the restaurant was in Busch Gardens, I'd probably eat there for the atmosphere alone. WS has too many good restaurants for us to eat mediocre food regardless of the atmosphere. If we were big beer drinkers, we may feel differently.

Unfortunately we

had to pick one because we love both! Biergarten edges out for the entertainment and the fact that it is all you care to eat and my wife loves the salads!

I think Le Cellier is over priced and over hyped. I didn't care for the steak or the soup at all. Biergarten isn't outstanding for me, food is good but not out of this world...but its better than LC. Plus the atmosphere and band is awesome!

Biergarten is good food and fun due to the entertainment. It isn't great german food, but it's pretty good food. It is a fun break due to the awesome German musicians that play there. It's also a lot less than Le cellier (on DDP or OOP).

If paying oop I would choose Biergarten hands down.

Le Cellier lunch and dinner menu
appetizers $7-$16
Entree $34-$46
Dessert $7-10

Biergarten at lunch

Even if you skipped the appetizer and dessert at Le Cellier, it is still way cheaper to eat at Biergarten. Plus you get a beverage included and wonderful dancing and entertainment!

If your looking for cheapest it's obviously Beirgaten, but for food it's Le Cellier hands down. It's incredible.
Whatever you choose I hope you have a fantastic time!

I chose Le Cellier only because that is a must do for us. We love everything about that restaurant (it is ashame that they went to a signature status for lunch though). As for Beirgarten, DH and I ate there on our "Adult Only" trip and thought it was o.k. The entertainment was fun and if you are a big beer drinker (which I am not) then it would be great. I thought the sausages and brats were great but I did not care for the salads and some of the desserts. Also, since we were a party of 2, we sat with another family who clearly would rather be seated by themselves then with 2 strangers (which I totally got and did not blame them for it). It kind of made for an unconfortable lunch.
