It has been almost three years since my last review of Tusker House and while it was still a good experience, my wife and I feel it needs some work. This time we went for dinner. It's still a fun, noisy dining room with lots of character interaction but the food is slipping. Shrimps were overcooked, salmon was very bony,... More

We were enjoying a three generation family vacation to the Disney World. We had a great time and a great trip. The only problem we had all week was at Disney was at the location for lunch. We had reservation at 1130 and did not get seated until noon. It was extremely hot today and we had to wait in... More

Party of 5 for lunch, tons of very small children screaming all around the place because it's a character meal. The food was ok. The service not great. The biggest negative was the price, 45$/person plus tip. We didn't leave the 20% gratuity they recommend on the bill because I'm not tipping 40$ for someone to clear plates and bring... More

Loved the characters at this location. It was so awesome to see Mickey, Donald, Daisy and Goofy. By far one of the best selection of characters. We had lunch and there were many tasty dishes. The pork was amazing and the curry chicken. I really also enjoyed the kids mac and cheese and drumsticks. Desserts were amazing at this buffet.... More

Tusker House is a great character buffet with some great options at the buffet. I have read excellent reviews and bad reviews for this place and it's mostly been based around the food. So here is how I break it down. If you want American comfort food - fried chicken, pasta, pizza, roast with the usual side of fries, desserts... More

All of the food was great. Large buffet selection of things I don't see often. Ate at the end of lunch, between the lunch and dinner servings and got to see all 4 characters at once. The wait staff were excellent and quite helpful.

It's a buffet, but I thought the selection of food was good. One needs to always check the menu on the Disney site and ready to expect those standards. For us, the selection was good and the price was reasonable for a character greet. Like any character greet, it takes awhile to see all four figures. You don't have to... More

I didn't have any expectations going into this restaurant but when I checked in for my reservation I was starving so I was hoping the food was good enough to fill me up! I was pleasantly surprised. I have Celiac so I had a chef walk me around the buffet and show me all the gluten free things and there... More

I was excited to have the opportunity to try some more ethnic foods, however, there were not enough standard food choices available. We booked this for the Rivers of Light seating, didn't realize that also included meeting characters, which was nice. But the buffet was just too unusual for our taste. For the price we paid, I would have liked... More

The buffet at the Tusker House was the best buffet we had at Disney World. There was a good variety of items, and they were all pretty good. The characters are fun. It is pricey. Be sure to get reservations ahead of time.
