Whispering Canyon 3/19/2010
My wife (Sandy), daughters (Mags 18 & Mo 10), and I ate dinner at Whispering Canyon on 3/19/2010. We have eaten here many times previously. We should have been on Tables in Wonderland except that I forgot to pack the card. :pinch:
Sandy had the Grand Canyon Margarita; she wasn’t wild about it, and thought it was an average margarita at best.
I had a glass of Pinot Noir (unfortunately, I don’t remember what it was but it’s on the bill as Gls Parker St Pnr) which was excellent; that’s one good thing about Whispering Canyon that it shares many wine selections with Artist Point.
Mags, Mo, and I all got the skillet. I always say that I’m not going to do it, and I almost always do. I am an amateur bbq-er, so I’m pretty picky about my bbq. The brisket was rubbery, and I suspect wasn’t brought to the correct temperature. The ribs were very dry, and the membrane on the backside of the ribs was not removed (the norm at WDW).
The rest of the skillet was okay to good; I thought the chicken was the best thing, bt Mags thought it was too salty. The girls liked the mashed potatoes.
Sandy is doing the no meat on Friday during Lent deal, so she ordered the Whiskey Maple-Glazed Trout and raved about it.
Our server was Gino Casino. He was merely good. They were really busy, though, and he seemed constantly on the move. He disappeared after we were done eating; we would have preferred to have left sooner.
Of course, Whispering Canyon is a loud place to eat with lots of activity. Unfortunately my kids don’t like this sort of thing, though, so we are always spectators instead of participants.
I love how the restaurant opens up to the Wilderness Lodge lobby.
Overall Ratings (1-5 scale) and Conclusion
So you can see that my family likes Whispering Canyon more than I do. Since we stay at the Villas at Wilderness Lodge, I’m sure we’ll eat here again. I swear I won’t get the skillet, and this time I mean it.
