Homecomin' is located in Disney Springs and is one of my favorite restaurants on Disney World property. I've been there a handful of times and have not had a bad meal. That's not to say that it's always great. During peak times, I have had meals that were good but not exceptional. My most recent trip was during lunch on a weekday. They were at about half-capacity and the meal was outstanding and the service was amazing! I was on the dining plan, which included a drink and desert. I knew what entree that I wanted but asked for input from the bartender for the other courses. I was very happy!

For my entree I selected the signature dish, "Art's Famous Fried Chicken". This is every bit as good as the Mid-West Potluck fried chicken that I remember from my youth! The portions are generous and I had leftovers. My one criticism is that the mashed potatoes are instant. That's not a horrible thing, but they aren't strong enough to stand on their own. They need gravy!
As I said before, I asked for input on my desert choice and I am so glad that I did. On a previous trip here with my wife, we did a moonshine flight. That comes with two items to use for palate cleansing. One of those items is candied pecans. I loved those when I had them. The bartender told me that the chocolate pecan pie, which I am already a fan of, was made with these pecans. SOLD! It lived up to every expectation that I had.

As mentioned before, I've been here a handful of times. Here are a few dishes that we've had:
|Grilled Mahi and Shrimp|
I was on the dining plan when I ordered the Grilled Mahi and Shrimp. It was good, but not worth the $30 price tag. The shrimp was very good. The fish was a generous size. I loved the kale. The sweet potatoes were just okay and the fish needed a bit more flavor.
|Fried Chicken and Doughnuts|
My daughter order this (also while on the dining plan). If sweet and savory is your thing, this might be a good choice. It was a little too much sweet for us. The chicken is awesome all by itself!
|Addie Mae's Chicken and Dumpling Soup|
My oldest daughter ordered this on a trip without a dining plan. She loved it and it was a very large portion!
Here are some pics of sides that we have order over various trips. We liked all of them.

At some point, I would like to go there for brunch. There are some menu items that look great.
I hope this review is helpful. I would love to answer any questions that you might have, so please feel free to add a comment below.
I would not order the church lady deviled eggs! We have tried them in the past, but they do not compare to any homemade deviled eggs I've every had.ReplyDelete
