One of the most under recognized restaurants at Epcot is the Biergarten Restaurant in the Germany Pavilion. This is more than a restaurant, it is a dining experience! Behind the quaint German village exterior facade is a HUGE dining hall that makes you feel like you have stepped right into a Hofbräuhaus in Germany! With what I consider the best buffet in Epcot, the Biergarten Restaurant should be on your list of must try dining experiences at Disney World!
When you arrive, your party will be taken into the dining hall straight out of the Hofbräuhaus in Germany where you will be seated at communal, biergarten-style tables.
You will first be asked for your drink order. They serve Coke products and a selection of German beer and wine. Once your drink order has been placed, you will be able to visit the all you can eat buffet.
You will find such German dishes as bratwurst, meatballs, and pork schnitzel along with Rotisserie chicken and an assortment of side dishes like sauerkraut, German potato salad and the most delicious pretzel rolls you’ve ever had!
And don’t get me started on the dessert selection. There is Bavarian cheesecake, hand-pulled apple strudel, and German Chocolate cake! You will want to try it all so save some room.
What really sets this dining experience apart from other buffet restaurants at Epcot is the live entertainment. There is a wonderful German band that will play and a dance floor that you can polka on. The band plays traditional German tunes and if you are there at Christmastime, you will also get to hear popular Christmas tunes.
Talk about transporting you to another place & time, the Biergarten Restaurant is the real deal. You will notice how every place you look has been painted or constructed to make you feel like you are really in a small German village. There are trees, building facades and even a moon in the night sky!
Even if you don’t think you are a fan of German food, you should try this restaurant. It really will inspire you and I guarantee that you will want to go back every time you are in Epcot!
