If you're not a guest at the Wilderness Lodge, a meal here is worth it just to see the giant totem poles and huge rock fireplace in the lobby of the hotel. The specialty at this restaurant, which focuses on foods of the American Northwest, is cedar-plank salmon, served with seasonal items like rainbow cauliflower, root spinach, lemon-butter sauce, applewood-smoked bacon jam, and short rib strudel (worth its $35 price tag). The buffalo is another signature item, sometimes char-grilled and served with luscious enhancements like Zellwood corn–sausage hash, Yukon gold–potato smear, and blackberry Pinot Noir reduction. There's a good Northwestern U.S. wine list and a wine-flight-pairing option for an additional cost.

We dined at Artist Point when we went to WDW last year and had an exquisite time. The food was delicious and the service impeccable. I would highly recommend dining there. Yes, it is more expensive, but it is excellent.
