So on suggestion from others I decided to take my daughter to the Whispering Canyon cafe on March 16th for dinner. The atmosphere was absolutely beautiful, done with a strong Aboriginal Theme. While the two of us were there we ordered the lobster/crab spinach dip which was absolutely amazing. My daughter ordered the ribs and I decided to try the... More

We decided to try this restaurant after being told that it was a MUST. I was aware of the antics involving ketchup, but not the demeanor of the servers. Now that I read reviews, I see that the servers are intentionally over the top, but that is different from over the top rude. Our server was loud and obnoxious and... More

Very interesting place. We knew from other reviews what to expect. Children love it. Noisy, but a lot of fun. Wait staff are rude, funny and obnoxious ! But wait, that is what they are supposed to be, part of the fun.

My family of 4, including an 8 year old daughter and 9 year old son, enjoyed the fun atmosphere of Whispering Canyon Cafe. We had reservations for 6:45, but they gave us a buzzer to hold on to until our table was ready. Luckily it ended up being only about 5 minutes. I knew what to expect when we walked... More

Food was really good. Our server, Laurie was a riot. You can tell that she really loves her job. Place is very kid friendly and a bit noisy. Have been there before and will return.

My kids love this place. Ask for the ketchup!!! This place is so much fun for my kids. They ask to go there to be put in "jail" every time we go to Disney. Also, ask for Tami the waitress. She's our favorite. And, she will throw straws at you or put you in jail, etc. The food is good....nothing... More

It is noisy! Be prepared. If you're up for it and want to try it, it's a lot of fun when you join in. The food was delicious! We got confused and we thought we could share the all-you-can-eat skillet, but you can't share one. However, if more than one person orders it, they just bring a BIGGER skillet. My... More

Heard this was a fun place to eat, so tried it when company came to visit from out of town. The food was good and plentiful. Our teenage kids who love Chick a Fil a milkshakes LOVED their milkshakes and refills were free! The deserts looked inviting but we were quite full. We were the last reservation for lunch and...

We knew that part of the Whispering Canyon Cafe charm is that its loud, noisy and fun, but knowing this before hand is a must. The food is very good and plentiful, so go hungry. Oh yes, you might want to think twice before you ask for ketchup. Its a HOOT!!!!! My family would certainly go back.

We came here for lunch after completing the Disney Princess half marathon. We had reservations and waited about 3 minutes before being sat down. I didn't know before coming here that the servers made jokes and did funny things to people during the meal. I learned quickly. Our server was very funny and jovial the whole time. It made it...
