Garden Grove at the Swan

I'll be going to the Friday Night Seafood buffet at Garden Grove at the Swan. Has anyone been there and want to share their experience?

Also, where the easiest place to park? At the Swan or at the Boardwalk and walk to Swan?

Not sure about the parking situation, but we ate there in 2011 and it was really good. It was Mediterranean night though, so totally different menu. The place was empty, and it was the Friday of Memorial Day Weekend. Goofy and Pluto were walking around and I think were bored and wanting more attention, lol. It wasn't on the dining plan and we were there during a free dining promo so I bet that's why it was emptier.

Our meal was free (hotel paid for it to partly make up for a room issue) so not sure how reasonable it is for the price compared to other WDW restaurants.

Easiest way is to park at the Swan. However, they charge for parking. Not sure if they validate parking for the non-signature restaurants or not.
