American Kitchen Bar & Grill Ratings and Reviews
Overall was a good experience as food was good and customer service was wonderful.
The menu however could use an update as I barely knew what anything was or included and prices are high. Also wasnt many options. Serving was not enough to fill you up although it was tasteful. I had a Conventional Coconut cocktail which was great! And should been since its $13.
I wouldnt eat there again as a family though, more as a drink or 2 drop in.
Made Reservations stating it was for My Husband's 70th Birthday. We arrived early and sat at the bar. I asked the bartender for his menu of specialty drinks that I saw online. He said they didn't have a drink menu. At our table my husband ordered Cape Canaveral Rock Shrimp and Grits $26. Very small bowl and very few shrimp. I ordered Chicken and Waffles $25. One Waffle and small piece of chicken breast. That's ALL. The quality of the food was good but the quantity was not worth the price. We ordered Cheese cake and Key Lime pie $9 each. No recognition for the occasion although I mentioned it several times. I would NOT recommend it or do a return visit. Service was tolerable. We are Florida residents and HATE how our Tourist are treated sometimes.
It was not good at all. Service was awful... took forever to get a manager to talk to. It wasn't even busy and the server was no where to be found. It was us and 3 tables. The place was empty. For a resort, I expect more. The best thing I had was the burger from room service.
The restaurant is located at the B Resort in Lake Buena Vista, Florida. My experience with restaurants in hotels has been mixed but after a long drive, we thought we'd take a chance. The server told us the restaurant tries to source all their ingredients locally. The offerings on the menu looked creative but not inexpensive. We opted for the night special which were pulled pork tacos and tequila The tacos were reasonably priced and delicious. Besides the flavorable pork, they were filled with pickled red onion and fresh cilantro. The margarita was ok. At the time we were there, the restaurant was not busy. If we happen to stay at the B Resort again, we would probably eat at this restaurant again.
Enjoyed dinner with a colleague after a day of work in the Orlando area. The beef short rib was cooked sous vide and was very tender & tasty, with a nice, rich sauce. My colleague had the Waygu burger and he seemed pleased with it. Lots of food, couldn't finish it all, and I'm a scratch eater. Not exactly in a restaurant row, worth the effort to find it.
I loved the farm to table idea. Everything is locally grown, raised or "fished". They grow all their herbs for the bar right at the bar and for the restaurant right in the restaurant on an old farm truck. The food was good with options like chicken and waffles, wehole whet pizzas, local seafood and macaroni and cheese.
NOTE: The restaurant/hostess did something with our reservation that cannceled it out of the system, so our 1000 point dinner did not calculate on my account. Had to go through customer service to get the points posted. I would just double check at the podium and then check your points the following day.
The DESCRIPTION of the food preparation got me there -- the idea of local sourced meats and vegetables and so on. But I didn't see all that much care in terms of the actual food. It wasn't bad - but I can't say it was all that good either. The steak in particular was very tough -- As for the decor -- liked the pickup but other than that the place is one big open hall -- not very personable --- the service was slow and that was surprising considering there were only about five tables occupied -- soooo -- it was okay. Overpriced for the quality of food though.
Went on Magical Dining Menu, as I wanted the rock shrimp and grits. You had to look really hard to find the shrimp in a huge bowl of grits. Could not have been more than 6, and rock shrimp are little. Husband had the salmon, he said it was "OK". Waitress was outstanding, did everything she could to accommodate us. When I complained about lack of shrimp, she told the manager, and $4.50 was taken off the bill. All in all, though, it was a very disappointing experience. Upon looking at the regular, non Magical Dining Menu, there is nothing on that menu that would make me go back.
We selected this restaurant because it was on the listing for the magical dining month in Orlando. It was a little hard to fine because it's actually in Hotel B. Great restaurant good with a good variety of food. I would definitelyrecommend this restaurant. The food is natural , no artificial ingredients, locally grown produce. Truly enjoyed my meal and the waiter service was excellent .
Let's start off on the positive side: the staff here is pretty good. They're attentive and helpful.
Now on to the rest. We chose this restaurant to visit based on reviews and ratings on a few apps. Unfortunately, when we visited, the menu had recently been completely scrapped and overhauled to create a new image. Instead of the reasonably priced food we expected, we were paying for subpar salads priced as if they were prime rib or market fresh fish.
I'm not kidding on this. I ordered a chicken Caesar salad for over $20. Ok, we were too hungry at that point to turn back so we tried to make the best of it. The Caesar salad is hard to mess up. In messing up, they are overachievers. It was served on a skillet (?!) and was basically a wedge salad. It was sliced in quarters and you received two quarters with a bit of cheese and 2 slices of chicken on it. So basically I paid for half a head of lettuce with no dressing (I squeezed lemon from a drink on it just to give it flavor) and a meager few slices of poultry.
It tasted just like you would expect plain farm fresh salad to taste like. Fresh lettuce. Hooray.
The new menu is awful for the palate and the pocketbook. It was no wonder this place was deserted on a Friday night. Steer clear unless you enjoy ridiculously bland food for ridiculously high prices.
This is clearly a restaurant surviving on being in a hotel. I hoped it'd be nice but it was everything all the other review stated. I ordered sliders and the bun was a larger hamburger bun broken into 4 pieces. Pretty embarrassing for any chef. The salad bar was minimal. They were out of 2 beverages we wanted. The server was slow an blamed how busy they were, which was sad because there were 6 full tables. Won't go back.
From the bright Red farm truck doubling as a salad bar, to the farmhouse decor, spending time in the American Kitchen is visually enjoyable. The menu is simple, American homestyle and a bit overpriced. I guess it's expected close to Disney. The wait staff was attentive, the bar service prompt, however the kitchen is slow. There were only six people in the restaurant, including our party of four, and a rib platter, grouper dish, and a pair of hot dogs took about 30 minutes from order to table. The other patrons experienced a similar level of service. Maybe we caught the chef on an off-night. The server was friendly, we'll give them another shot.
The design is fun, the wait staff is very good, and there was a lot of open space, which seems unusual. I'm used to dodging and bumping into tables on the way to my table. This layout isn't crammed with tables, so it's very inviting.
Having said that, the prices are high for the quality of the food. The quantity seemed fine, but it wasn't as top-notch as the prices suggest. The gigantic piece of prime rib was super tough, which was incredibly suprising to me, as it was not only the most expensive thing on the menu, but also the "daily special", and labelled "all-you-can-eat". Disappointing, although the shrimp and grits that my wife had were okay.
We didn't have drinks, but there is also a separate bar area that looked fine, with the same open floor plan. Very inviting.
the food we had was solid.. huge portions, burgers were solid choices.. it was a little annoying hearing once, twice, thrice that they were out of something. some beer options, some entree options, some dessert options all got the same 'sorry we are out of this' or 'sorry we are changing our menu and no longer have this dish'
it's not a problem if they say this up front, or offer some comparable alternative, but finding out as you go to order was not well received.
Took the family (youngest) for birthday lunch Sunday. There were only a few patrons there so that was nice. A little pricey but this is Disney. The hamburgers were fantastic. There was a pasta dish with bison I can't remember the name of but everyone loved it. A cuban rueben was enjoyed. Wally the waiter was fantastic.
