Trail's End Lunch

I will be in WDW in September and I am considering going to Trail's End for Lunch. I most likely would go on either my Magic Kingdom day or Hollywood Studios day. The menu looks very intriguing. Has anyone been recently for lunch? What would you recommend for lunch? Would you go on your Magic Kingdom day or Hollywood Studios day?

Thanks for any advice!!!

1) Good for breakfast and dinner.
2) Pass on the lunch.

************************************************

Our Ratings of Trails End: (rev 2/11/2013)
. . . food price value: B
. . . food quality: B
. . . food quantity: B
. . . food prep speed: B
. . . food selection: C
. . . seating quantity: C
. . . seating comfort: C
. . . eatery atmosphere: B
. . . eatery convenience: D
. . . staff friendliness: B
. . . staff attentiveness: C
. . . character interaction: n/a

NOTE: The above ratings are for breakfast and dinner, which have
good, tasty comfort food. We like them both as dining alternatives,
as they are reasonably priced for Disney meals. Lunch, however,
is far, far behind in quality and value. In Spring-2011, they changed
lunch menus and we no longer recommend midday Trail's End. For
dinner, try the fried chicken and "make-your-own-potato" bar. At
breakfast, you NEED, NEED, NEED the sticky buns. Also, the nice
thing about breakfast, is the low crowd level, since many campers
prepare breakfast at their site. Trail's End Breakfast Buffet is the
second best breakfast buffet, just behind The Wave breakfast buffet
at Contemporary.

I would go on your MK day and just catch the boat over. I have done this a couple of times and it is really fun. When I ate there for lunch I had the Berry chicken salad and it was very good, The Sticky Bun Sundae sounds really good too, got to go back sometime for that. We also have a reservation there in Nov. for dinner. It's a fun resort to visit.

It is a tree that has grown around an old lawnmower. I think there is a sign that points it out, kind of interesting.
