    I just discovered this restaurant online and the pictures look very nice. We're thinking about going there on a Saturday night for dinner. Can anyone tell me about their experience? How's the food, atmosphere and price? Are there characters at dinner. We don't have little kids (DS16) and don't really care for character meals.

    Our Ratings of Garden Grove - Dinner Buffet: (4/12/2012)
    . . . food price value: C
    . . . food quality: B
    . . . food quantity per serving: A
    . . . food prep speed: A
    . . . food selection: C
    . . . seating quantity: C
    . . . seating comfort: B
    . . . eatery atmosphere: C
    . . . eatery convenience: B
    . . . staff friendliness: B
    . . . staff attentiveness: C
    . . . character interaction: n/a

    NOTE: We have dined at all three themed dinner buffets. They are
    Seafood, Southern BBQ, and Mediterranean. We found the food quality
    and taste to be above average, not superior. For a buffet, we thought
    the price slightly high. We liked the Southern BBQ, and really enjoyed
    the Seafood "Fisherman's Wharf" buffet (I am very fond of Bouillabaisse).
    Overall, an acceptable buffet at WDW and not as bad on the wallet as
    expected. The only thing we thought was bad was the service. We waited
    long periods for dirty plates to be cleared. We waited for drinks refilled
    or replenished. The table got crowded with plates we were using and plates
    that needed to be removed.

    We did the non-character dinners, thus cannot comment on interaction
    on weekend character meals.

    Years ago it was great. We went last year and it was awful. We wont be going back.

    We tried the seafood buffet. I would agree with this post. Decent food. rustyscupper's review of the service was similar to our experience - it wasn't very good. I wouldn't return.
