Salads: mixed green salad, sausage salad (I'm not joking, they actually have sausage salad), picked red beet salad, warm German potato salad, bean salad, cucumber-dill salad, and tomato salad with fresh basil (I'm not a big tomato-eating person -- I don't even do a lot of ketchup -- but woe be unto the management if I come for some of this and it not be available). Also available at this station are assorted cold cuts, cheeses, a seasonal soup choice, and miniature loaves of pretzel bread (similar to what you can get at Le Cellier... provided of course you can actually get an ADR there).
Hot Buffet: rotisserie chicken, pork shank, pork roast, baked veal loaf, veal sausage, roasted potatoes, spaetzle, schnitzel, assorted sausages, sauerkraut, frikadellen (meat patties in a red wine sauce), carrots, red cabbage, sauerbraten (pot roast), and more. Obviously, if you're a vegetarian you might want to skip this establishment and head on over to the Land's food court instead.
Dessert: Bavarian cheesecake, apple strudel, Blackforest cake, Florentiner cookies, and more (although honestly, I rarely even pay attention to the 'and more' part as the cheesecake/Blackforest cake dominate my attention).
And of course, what would a place like Biergarten be without BEER (well, aside from just plain ol' “garten”)? Several different kinds of German beers are available in both bottle and draft -- and when I say “draft,” I mean in terms of both 1/2- and 1-liter sizes! If beer isn't quite your thing, however, there are also selections of German coffee drinks, schnapps, and wines.
My wife and I first tried Biergarten as we were working our way around the various Epcot restaurants -- and this place had me from “Willkommen.” I'll admit I'm the type of person who prefers meat over vegetables 11 times out of 10, so the meat-heavy menu seemed like the ultimate playground for my inner carnivore. Biergarten quickly became a must-do on every trip we could; one of the servers (a wonderful lady named Renate) actually told us she considered us among her regulars. The overall quality has been very consistent as well; in well over a dozen visits (I've lost count, so I can't say exactly how many) I've never had a bad experience with the food, drink, or wait staff.
When dealing with all-you-can-eat buffets, my philosophy is to take small samples of as many different offerings as possible and then go back for seconds on what appeals most. In this case the decision can be rather difficult at times. My usual favorites are the schnitzel (topped with hunter sauce) and the tomato salad, but honestly depending on my mood almost any of the selections save the frikadellen will do. My other personal favorite is a nice 1/2-liter of draft beer (I'm more of an amber kind of guy, but the occasional dark beer is nice too).
If there is any downside to this place -- aside from personal taste, of course -- it's that the cost of $32.99 per adult makes it a little bit pricey for dinner. As a result I would recommend making this a lunch reservation instead; at only $19.99 per adult (”only,” he says) it's a much better value even though the dinner menu has a few (very few) more items.
All in all, I would heartily recommend Biergarten to anyone looking for a positive dining experience. It's a great place to beat the heat and enjoy the spirit of Oktoberfest the whole year through -- and you never know when you may make a few new friends at the same time.
