Capt. Cook's Dining Review

It's been quite a while since we posted an updated review on Capt. Cook's (see 2012 review here).  We decided to check out the remodeled Capt. Cook's since it just reopened.

After a long ride on Disney Park Transportation, we were really happy to sink into some cozy seating. I decided to try something different this time around. I chose the Chicken and Waffles featuring crispy buffalo chicken fritters on a waffle with romaine and ranch dressing (Buffalo sauce on the side). Gus ordered the famous Pulled Pork Nachos topped with Onions, Cheese, Spicy Mayo, Tomatoes, and Pineapple Salsa.

We picked out a spot and took in some of the tropical feel of the room. Warm wood and banana tree leaves add warmth to the room. The textured walls and Polynesian type markings accent the space beautifully. 

We tried the pork nachos and were instantly disappointed. The toppings were cold and the chips were tough and inedible. Gus went back and asked for fresh plate. Within 5 minutes or so, he was given the new plate, but it did not help. The dish did not compare to the awesome pork nacho found in Miami. The pork had little to no seasoning.  The nachos were bland.

This was a photo of the first batch.

I was also disappointed with my chicken and waffles.  The waffle was dry and the chicken rubbery.

If we weren't so hungry, we would have left and tried out one of the other locations upstairs.

To add insult to injury, the food did not sit well with me and ended up causing us to cancel the rest of our plans for the day (getting sick at Disney stinks period.)
