Definitely not a place to go if you want to be able to talk. I'm not a fan of that type of entertainment, but an old classmate I hadn't seen in many years was in the area and wanted to go there. (not the place to try to have long conversations...)

I expected to enjoy the food, but the only 2 things I liked were the dessert (yum) and the brussels sprouts - which was surprising since I usually hate them!

I think it's the total package, and I eat very few TS at Disney.... great atmosphere, lots of fun, and GREAT food (I wanted to eat that cheese soup forever) Boma and Biergarten are my whole familys favorite places!

My DH loves Biergarten. We have a lot of fun. The girls get up and dance with him. We enjoy the food too.

Going to try Biergarten for the first time in September. Is there a schedule for the entertainment during dinner?

We had dinner here in May 2013. The communal table was still in force and I agree it was a great experience. We're from NJ and sat with a family from Missouri. So much fun discussing our trips, Disney likes, and other things. As far as the food goes..........I'm a fan because I grew up with German food. Was it fine dining.......no........not meant to be. Was it good........most definitely. German cuisine can be heavy which some may not like. We also enjoyed the "flight of beers" great treat to try a group of different beers. I'm a not into the heavier/darker beers so I just traded them off with my sweetie who enjoys that style of beer. Music and dancing too..........great for the kids..... In the end it was a great time!!!

We really like the Biergarten. The food isn't the best German food we've had, but we also lived in Germany and were able to experience some of the best. My husband loves the Schoefferhoeffer Weizen so it's a "must" on our dinner ADRs. Looking forward to eating there in a couple of weeks.

If you are a Meat N Taters kind of eater, it's hard to beat Biergarten. My DH LOVED it!

I, OTOH, am a Hard Core Foodie and I found it moderately repulsive. :-)

Biergarten is in my top 2 favorite Disney restaurants...My number 1 being 'Ohana! Someone said Biergarten is the "total package"...I couldn't agree more. The atmosphere, entertainment, seating, servers...all add so much to the total experience. My husband and I are BIG eaters...we love pretty much any and all types of food. We grew up eating "Bohemian" food, which is pretty darned close to German food. If you like dishes like chicken schnitzel (basically a chicken breast pounded very thin and breaded, served with a delicious gravy), spaetzle (sort of like tiny dumplings, also coincidentally served with gravy), red cabbage, sauerkraut, assorted sausages...you will like this place! There is so much more than that...roast chicken, roasted potatoes, always a couple of carved meats (usually one pork loin), meatloaf, all sorts of salads, delicious soup, pretzel bread and the list goes on. It's definitely heavy and comfort food. If you're looking for "fresh and light" this wouldn't be the place for you. I love it! And I love the *idea* of one of those big beers, but I never ever get one...saving all of my room for dinner!

DH's favorite eatery is Biergarden. The combo of great beer, great atmosphere, fun oompa band, good food and all around good time makes it a must do for us.

DD does not like the food so much, but enjoys the rest of the experience. She still finds plenty of eat.

We went for the first time last week and really enjoyed it. My kids tried new foods. My youngest ate lots of pretzel bread. The table sat 8, we had 6. I was at an end. My dh, mother, and youngest ds enjoyed conversation with our table mates, a woman from Germany and her bf from Australia. She didn't speak English and he did. The servers were excellent and we had a fun lunch.

Gross food, cute show

Sorry, but the food imho was just gross. All the food, even the desserts (seriously it is hard to mess up desserts!) They should of paid me to eat here and given me $$$ for pain and suffering. I didn't mind the communal seating, but we were sitting next to a group that apparently did not want to converse with others, or each other, awkward.... The show was cute, but seriously I cannot understand how people can like the food there. Thought food at Crystal Place and Chef Mickey's was light years better than this place, so we have done a few good buffets. To each his/her own, I wish I had the $$$$ we spent here back to have gone somewhere else! We won't EVER be back.

Different strokes for different folks, because I have vowed to not eat at Chef Mickey's again due to the food choices, taste and the fact that I saw multiple people not getting a clean plate when they went up for more food. I even saw one lady at CM's put a rib (or something) on her plate (not a new one) and then take it off and put it back in the bin for someone else to take.

Ditto. Love the food and the atmosphere, but we dislike eating with strangers. My husband is very shy, so it's just awkward. But those pretzel rolls are worth it once every few years.
