Do you know what “PCH” stands for? Most folks think it’s for Pacific Coast Highway – but at Disney’s PCH Grill they’re now saying “Pure Culinary Heaven.”

With a riff on the picnics, barbecues and bonfires that happen often at Pacific Coast Highway beaches, the team at Disney’s PCH Grill has created a new nightly buffet starting on July 17 with tastes inspired by all of California’s coastline, from the southern San Diego shores all the way to the northern redwoods.

Start with a carving station with dry-rubbed smoked tri-tip beef and baby back ribs, or the seafood sauté station with shrimp Alfredo with cavatappi pasta, or littleneck clams, chorizo and potatoes, cooked in broth with a roasted garlic-herb crostini. Then there’s wood-fired pizzas, mini taco station (beer-battered sustainable fish or veggie tacos), spice-rubbed pork shoulder, and sides such a roasted potato salad, heirloom tomato-mozzarella salad, deviled eggs and a build-your-own salad bar.

Dessert is mostly in your hands: a s’mores bar or build-your-own strawberry shortcake, fancy ice cream cones filled with vanilla bean, passion fruit and strawberry mousse. Or there’s a brioche fresh fruit pizza (made in the wood-burning oven), seasonal berry crisp and milk chocolate caramel tart (with sea salt and bacon brittle!). Add a little taste of the islands with creamy haupia pudding with layers of coconut and mango.

  • Is this a character buffet

  • How close to 9 can you go and still enjoy the full buffet?

  • This restaurant is in the hotel correct? Looks like we need to make a trip!

  • Everything sounds delicious! I just wish I knew about it before the wheat allergy was identified. Ah, well, in my next life…

  • How long will this be going? We are staying at the Paradise Pier from November 28-December 5 and it would be fun to try it!

  • Staying at Paradise Pier during our trip for the D23 Expo; just booked this! Really looking forward to it! (and the whole trip of course!!!!)

  • Thanks! Booked a reservation for this weekend. Do the characters still come around during the meals?

  • We are staying at Paradise Pier in December. This is now a must do for us on our arrival night.

  • Any idea how long this menu is likely to stay around for? We don’t arrive til October 1st but would LOVE to try it!

  • That restaurant has always been the secret spot for our family. We go there almost every night we stay and noticed there was never a buffet. Now the restaurant will be a little more crowded than it usually is. So much for our secret! I do recommend the Pizza, however, if it is still available.

    • The wood-fired pizzas will still be available as part of the buffet. 🙂

  • What would be options for those of us with food allergies?

    • All of our Disneyland Resort restaurant teams are trained to handle dietary requests. At our restaurants that offer buffets, please request to speak with a Chef upon arrival. For questions regarding special dietary accommodations, we encourage you to contact the Disneyland Special Diets Team at Special.Diets@Disneyland.com.

  • Nice! Just made a ressie for a dinner during D23! We have never been over to Paradise Pier or PCH Grill, so this is exciting!
