    Re: Best Restaurant at DLR

    I agree that the hotels should be included. They are part of the Disneyland Resort, which is the title of the thread. That said, I'd have to say Plaza Inn, BB, Hungry Bear, and Carnation Cafe. I enjoy the snack food at the Cove Bar. In DtD, Ralph Brennans and even Rainforest (great cocktails). And Whitewater Snacks in the Grand Cal.

    Re: Best Restaurant at DLR

    I have to chime in on the Vineyard Room. We dined there last week and were blown away that this place existed in DCA. It was truly a first class dining experience. Plus we had ressies late enough that we got to watch the MSEP from our table. I will return if it remains as it is.

    My favorite restaurants are Carnation Cafe for breakfast and Hungry Bear for lunch (Im a burger and fries type of girl) and you can't beat the river front location and the opportunity to feed ducks

    As for the hotels I really like Storytellers and Hooks Point

    Re: Best Restaurant at DLR

    We love Rancho del Zorro (should be Zorro, not Zocala!). Anyway, it is decent Mexican food that we can get vegified and drown in Ortega taco sauce. Fairly cheap too (relative to other places in DL), and the servings are large enough to share.

    We also like the Plaza Inn.

    my fave restaurant is easily Napa Rose. Their food quality easily trumps even that of The Club (33). My favorite counter-service is R2P2 (Redd Rocket's Pizza Port).

    Re: Best Restaurant at DLR

    My kids would say R2P2 (very clever nickname)

    I would have to say in Disneyland it would be Club 33 but since everyone can't go there I choose..........Hungry Bear. Usual food choices but the best place to kick back and take a load off.

    heh - well I can understand the no hotels part. The LAST thing I would want to do is go on some quest out of the park to one of the hotels for some food. OK - mayyyyybe whitewater IF and only if I happen to be in DCA but even that is pushing it for me. I want my food experience quick and over so I can go on some more rides

    Over the years we have eaten at every current location the parks have to offer - and this is my feelings:

    The only food place I do not care for in DL is the pizza place and the McD's stand - I just do not go to DL for that! We love to eat at the French Market and love it. The kids have good choices of food they like and so do we.

    DCA is the opposite, so I am not there in the eating time-period. The only place I really like there is Rocket Rods (sp?). The burgers are ok - but nothing to write home about. For the most part we get a fruit bowl for the kids after we hit up ToT. It is funny to see our kids munching on fruit while passing COUNTLESS kids munching on some sort of candy. We have got the "I wish my kids were like that" comment numerous times.

    I really enjoy the Blue Bayou. It serves great food and I love the fact that it is located in the POTC.

    I like the Hungry Bear too, especially around 9-930p. Get a burger and fries, go sit by the river, and watch all the Fantasmic boats and wave. They all wave back, ask whats for dinner, etc.... Its a fun area.

    Re: Best Restaurant at DLR

    Can anyone give me a review of Granvilles Steak House at the Disneyland Hotel? Will be down there in a few weeks and have never ventured in. Worth the price?

    Re: Best Restaurant at DLR

    I would have to say the French Market for lunch and Redd Rocket's Pizza Port for dinner. A great place to rest and cool down after a hot day in the sun.

    The "Too expensive" idea is such a misconception. I finally talked my hubby into Blue Bayou, and we ended up spending a whole $10 more for 4 people than we do at counter service places. I think its worth it when you factor in:
    1: Free refills
    2: Don't have to stand in line waiting for food than balance 4 meals on a tray back to your table
    3. Better variety than burger or cheeseburger.

    Don't forget the AMBIENCE! How many places allow you to eat in (not on, but in) a ride!

    Kid's meals are maybe a dollar more than elsewhere ..... and even though adult items may be as much as $5 or $15 more per person, comapare that to how much is being spent on the entire Disney trip! And if you think you can subside on burgers, rent "Supersize Me" ......
