    This one also got a thumbs down from our family. But, I will admit that we were all tired, hot and bothered when we arrived. We fully admit that could have colored our view. Dd15 had also just hyperextended her knee so she was hurting and wasn't in the mood to eat.

    The buffet was plentiful, but the shrimp was very overcooked and tough. The sides were all great, I made a meal of those and the salads and salmon. Dd15 pretty much ate a serving of salad and some fruit. Dd9 didn't care for the kids buffet, but found enough to eat on the regular buffet to keep her happy. She is just not a chicken tender, mac and cheese kind of kid!

    Kudo's to the chef here. Dd9 has a peanut allergy. He came out to inform us there was nothing on the dessert buffet that was safe for her. He asked her, if she could have anything what would it be. She said "chocolate icecream with blueberries"...and darned if he didn't show up within 5 minutes with just that! She was thrilled.

    I am sorry you were not happy with Cape May. We really love it there~of course we don't eat any of the seafood!

    We love Cape May & never miss it! The one drawback is that I tend to feel sick everytime I leave...because I go through about 4 plates of clams{in addition to everything else, including the great dessert bar}. :) :)

    We do not eat seafood, but Cape May is a definate stop on all of our trips, usually 2x, once for breakfast with Minnie and once for dinner.

    Our trip to the World would not be complete without a meal at CMC. We really enjoy the selection there and have always had a great meal. Also, the servers are consistantly great. Sorry your experience was not good, maybe you can give it another chance.

    PS~I love their cornbread

    Thanks for the review, sorry you weren't impressed with the food. A few years ago they were also really great with my dairy allergy at breakfast. They prepared some dairy free waffles for me, but also were willing to make any other dishes dairy free. :sunny:

    We just ate there on Thursday, and our family is not a seafood family so we didn't eat it, but we did have everything else. I was happy to see they had a good veggie selection as well as other things. Thought the ribs were good as well.

    I just love it when they take care of kids like that. Now I'm going to have to try some chocolate ice cream and blueberries!

    Could someone describe the sides? I'm thinking of adding this buffet to our list next trip...DH is a big seafood fan, but I'm not a huge fish eater. Although if I could fill up on shrimp and sides, it'd be fine.

    DD9 and I are going next weekend (I have to check and see what day I made ADRs for???).

    We try to go to a WDW restaurant once a month (more if the budget allows) and DD picked CMC. She LOVES steamed clams.
