Fodor's Expert Review Artist Point
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; it's also one of the best, and most overlooked, of the Disney restaurants. The specialty at this restaurant, which focuses on foods of the American Northwest, is cedar-plank salmon, served with seasonal items like sweet potato mash, house-smoked bacon, and apple cider gastrique (it's worth its price tag). House-made and smoked charcuterie is a highlight. The buffalo is another signature item, sometimes chargrilled and served with luscious enhancements like macaroni and Cotswold cheese, English peas, crispy shallots, buffalo sausage, braised cabbage-apple-cranberry slaw, and blackberry demi-glace. There's a good Northwestern U.S. wine list.
