    The buffet was ok, the turkey sausage was not fully cooked, beagles we rock hard and some of the food tasted horrible. Dinner buffet was the same. The best item was the chicken tenders. The best meal we had was our sit down in the castle off the menu. Sandy our waitress was wonderful.

    For a buffet, it was pretty good. Lots of choices and the food was fresh. The coffee was decent too. We preferred this one over the other on site hotel, mostly because their coffee was essentially colored water.

    Waitress was great once she got to us, however check in was chaotic. There were 4 girls and one guy and they seemed overwhelmed, unorganized and lacking customer service. We were sat 15 minutes after our "reservation time". Not greeted by waitress for what seems like a long while. Food was great though. King margarita was delish.

    The place was loud and busy but the chief complaint was that we made reservations for 830. Arrived on time and still had to wait 30 min. The hostess said she would seat us in 2 min and that was untrue. People should be given the truth. Another lady with a reservation expressed her shared dissatisfaction that the reservation was not honored as they were seating ppl with no reservation and pushing us back. More importantly, the demeanor of the hostess. She stated to the other customer that the longer she continued to talk, the longer it would take. Just her attitude was enough for us to leave. We will not visit the castle in the future. I hope you will address this for the future

    The host station is a disaster. You would have six people standing at the whole station talking about their personal life and issues while we were waiting there without being acknowledged for about 5 to 8 minutes

    Went here for breakfast for two days- they had a good selection of breakfast items scrambled eggs, sausage, bacon, waffles, potatoes, eggs, yogurt, fruit salad, pancakes, waffles, French toast, bagels. One day they had chilaquiles and veggie quiche, another day they breakfast items plus Chinese food. My two complaint would be (1 )be there early because while the breakfast ends at 10:30 I noticed that at 10:00 they stop making breakfast items and don’t refill the bread station so if you get there too late you will have limited options (2) since the dragon den is a sit down restaurant it is not really equipped for it to be a buffet style so the layout is a bit weird, they run out of plates and cups pretty fast so sometimes you wait a few minutes(less than 5) for staff to bring out clean plates and you get plastic utensils which is not a big deal.

    A little more hectic feeling in the morning compared to Bricks due to the smaller buffet area in the morning but the food is wonderful and the restaurant itself is awesomely decorated. Cartoons and a legopit help keep kids entertained so parents can eat leisurely. Staff is incredible. Love all the dining in Legoland

    For a complimentary breakfast for a resort, it was fantastic! Both my four and one year old found something to eat while my husband and myself found something filling. The staff was also very patient and understanding when they saw the disaster my one year old made on the floor as she ate. The best part of the restaurant was the play area for the kids up front!

    While the concept is great this restaurant fell way below expectations. The food was down right terrible. I was unable to finish my cocktail and my husband couldn't finish his either. My child said it was the worst hamburger he has ever had. The staff at dinner was friendly, but the quality fell way below expectations especially for the price. This restaurant could have done so much better with higher quality food and drinks.

    While this breakfast was included with our hotel stay, it was terrible. I really don't think a buffet in the time of covid is a really bad idea. There were kids running everywhere touching food and then putting it back. The set up was very disorganized. Many items were out or not restocked. There were a lot of people working, but not a lot were making it run any more smoothly. The food was BAD! We can usually find something to eat just about anywhere, but we stuck to whole fruits and cereals.

    This was the most bland breakfast I have ever had. There were many options but they were all equally as bland. I've had better breakfasts at a holiday Inn. This was free and I'll still never go back.

    Appetizers underwhelming tried brócoli and texture and taste were off, tried the artichoke again not very good. Cajun shrimp pasta was awful, burgers were just ok, plain cheesecake and Oreo cheesecake were best part of the meal. Service was good, but no value for the money; best to valet and eat elsewhere.
