If you though breakfast and dinner were lip-smackin’ good, wait until you see dinner. You can have your choice of a Build Your Own Family Dinner Platter, Buffalo Meatloaf, Rainbow Trout, Oak-roasted Pork Loin rib chop and more. Top off your dinner experience with Whispering Canyon S’mores or a Apple-Caramel pie.

At all meal services you can enjoy bottomless milkshakes, yes, bottomless! Flavors include chocolate, vanilla or strawberry.

Breakfast is served from 7:30 am – 11:15 am, lunch from 11:45 am – 2:30 pm, and dinner is from 5:00 pm – 10:00 pm

Please note if you make a reservation towards the very end of the lunch service, platters may only be available at that time.

The Entertainment

But enough about the food. The thing that draws most visitors to Whispering Canyon Cafe is the wild and rowdy entertainment. It has been known around these parts that certain things can be done to enhance your Whispering Canyon experience. Cast members here have a reputation for stirring up some trouble and quite a lot of laughs while you eat. Ask for ketchup and see what happens. Need a napkin or a longer straw? You just might regret asking. (Please note that these gags are not the rule. It depends on your server and how busy the restaurant is at the time)

In addition to all the tomfoolery that can happen, get your little cowpokes ready to go on a wild ride. Hobby horse races around the restaurant get the kids in on the action. They may even get to participate in a sing-a-long.
