is it worth going to the pepper market for CS if we aren't staying there?

the menu looks great, and we have never done CS, we did deluxe on our first trip, and this is our second trip. So would you go to the pepper market, if you weren't staying at the coronado?

thanks

I wouldn't eat there if we were staying there! Sorry PM fans, but we didn't care for it at all.

I enjoy PM and if you are interested in trying it, go for it! Then you can look around the resort. I think its very pretty there.

I think its definitely worth it on the dining plan as a CS.

No. We avoided it even when we stayed at CSR -- very disappointing for both food and service.

Worst food on property, in my opinion. Made a special trip there in December and ordered dinner. Inedible.

We stayed at CS last January and only ate at PM once. We weren't thrilled with it and it is expensive for counter service...if you are on the DP I guess it would be more worth it.

Go for it! Make it an excuse to check out the resort.

We like the PM and Maya Grill, and have gone there even when we don't stay at CSR, though it's become our moderate resort of choice now.

It's only counter service after all, and not everyone's cup of tea. Your food may be ready earlier or later than others in your party if they've gone to different sections. Most people don't like the 10% service charge, and the prices are higher that other mod. CS since Disney doesn't run the food locations at CSR. This can make it an expensive OOP meal. Neither of these is an issue if you are on a DDP. The up side is that most dishes are made fresh in front of you, or at least assembled in front of you for the pre-made items, so you can alter to your taste.

We don't expect a restaurant quality meal from a counter service location, but find the food is pretty good. Sure the steaks are small and sometimes fatty, but we ask at the grill first before we order and if it's fatty today we order something else. I have yet to try the new menu, but I'm sure I'll find a few things I like. Compared to other CS locations, they have a much more extensive selection.

We went to PM on our arrival day in March for the first time, and since we couldn't get into our room anyways, we decided to go resort hopping. DH and I both had the quesadillas which we thought were very good while our DDs had the usual kids meals. We were overall impressed with the whole atmosphere. I would definately return.

I'm with you! I've never had a tasty meal there and I've given it more than one shot! Just because it has high prices doesn't make it a good deal if the food is gross.

Hi - slightly confused here...We have the QS Plan for our upcoming trip and wanted to come for lunch at PM and check out the CSR for the first time. Is the 10% included in the QS plan or am I going to pay OOP? Thanks for any answer I can get.

We were on DDP last year and thought this would be a great place to eat for a CS. We were pretty dissapointed in the food and service from the people taking orders. Would have rather eaten at the CS at our hotel.

On one hand I don't like the way the pepper mart operates. But there burgers are good and my son loved there Quesadillas. And yes they are more $$$ there in my opinion.

We made a big effort to try the Pepper Market. Two different trips we tried to go for lunch and the conventions being held at the hotel had just let out for lunch - the lines were atrocious - we didn't stay. They say three times is a charm - on our third trip we were able to be seated without a huge wait. We thought the food was just okay - and it was expensive - even for Disney. We won't be back and are sorry we wasted so much time trying to give it a try
