PCH Grill - beach side bonfire buffet dinner review

There was a time when we enjoyed having various meals at the Paradise Pier Hotel at the Disneyland Resort.  We were pretty sad when they closed Yamabuki's because we'd enjoyed the couple meals we'd had there.  (And why hasn't another restaurant opened in that space since that restaurant closed?  The lounge area of the hotel offers a couple of food items for lunch but PCH Grill seems to be the only food choice in the hotel and there's nothing else nearby.  Seems to be a disincentive (yeah, I know, that's not a word) to stay there.)  We've looked at the PCH Grill menu over the last multiple years, and the menu just has not appealed to us.  One time, it was all just sandwiches, nothing too inspiring.  Other times, it was weird ingredients in food, and this coming from someone who enjoys many different kinds of cuisines and eclectic food.

Then I saw this post, and the menu offerings looked interesting.  We finally had a chance to visit last night with friends, so here's my review with pictures.  It looks like a few items have changed since it first opened, but that's probably expected.

Mostly familiar items on the menu but done pretty well.  I commented to a friend last night that it was PCH Grill's way of saying "sorry for the weirdo crap we've tried to get you to eat before".  :)
