Even though there's no "menu" per say (Garden Grill is family-style platters), there's still a square "program" of sorts... to let you know what food is going to be on the platter. There are also some "adult" beverage options listed inside.
Hey, it's Farmer Mickey! As far as I know, the only place you can see Mickey dressed in his garden overalls is here at Garden Grill.

Harvest-inspired Farmer’s Salad (could, might, maybe) have a garnish or two that was grown in the Land greenhouses below. I suspect, the need for salad here at Garden Grill, far outpaces what can be grown downstairs. Neat idea though.
This is the family-style platter. Everyone gets smaller plates to pull what they want off this larger plate. Options do change seasonally at Garden Grill, but there are usually three proteins on the main plate.
All Natural Sliced Turkey Breast with Turkey Gravy is usually one of the items on the main lunch plate. There is some Bacon and Leek Stuffing underneath the turkey slices.
In the middle of the main Garden Grill lunch platter is an Italian Sausage with Sauteed Peppers and Onions.
Moving down the plate, there are some Buttermilk Mashed Potatoes and then slices of Marinated Flank Steak. Recently, we've seen Pot Roast replacing the steak slices... but that's what a seasonally inspired menu is all about.
Also delivered with the main platter is a "sides" platter. Pictured here is the Mac and Cheese with Goldfish, Sweet Potato Fries and Steamed Broccoli. The vegetable and the fries tend to get changed up every now and again (i.e. different vegetables, etc).
A closer look at those Sweet Potato Fries at Garden Grill. There is some course sea salt that has been sprinkled on the fries, to counter the "sweet".
Waiter, there's a Goldfish in my Mac and Cheese!
A side dish of Cranberry Sauce for the Sliced Turkey Breast and Stuffing.
Chip and Dale are two of the regulars that make appearances at the Garden Grill Restaurant at Epcot.
Mickey (in his farmers outfit) and Pluto make their rounds to all the tables at Epcot's Garden Grill Restaurant, where you will have plenty of time to take photos and interact with the characters.
There are several great views of the "Living with the Land" attraction from the Garden Grill Restaurant. This is the "Buffalo and Great Plains" scene.
After dinner, Mickey will deliver dessert. Well.. not really. Mickey was trying to help me take a picture of the Berry Short Cake.
Dessert at the Garden Grill is a Short Cake that has been topped with a seasonal Fruit Compote and Vanilla Bean Whipped Cream.
That dollop of "cream" on top of the berries is not "ice cream"... it's whipping cream. I know, I know... I wish it were ice cream as well. (Yes, it used to be ice cream... a very, very long time ago.)
Chip is (obviously) one of the characters you will meet at "Chip n' Dales" Harvest Feast at the Garden Grill Restaurant.
It's Pulto! The "upper" seating level provides just a bit more room than the lower seating level. If you want to stand up and get a photo with the characters, it's a little easier on the second level.
Here's the "menu" that's on the table. Garden Grill is family-style platter dining, so there's nothing to "choose" per-say. 75% of the menu is dedicated to add-on drink options... including a descent sized wine list... for a character meal. (Photo circa 2017.)
The second or "upper" level seating is comprised of tables and pull-out chairs, while the first level is booth style seating only.
You can't see much of the "Living with the Land" boat ride or scenes from up here, but there is a bit more room for taking photos with the characters.
The lower level seating area at Garden Grill provides a very cool view of the Living with the Land attraction below. The "walls" here are glass and as the restaurant rotates, different scenes from the attraction appear and disappear.
The desert scene, as seen, from Epcot's Garden Grill Restaurant during lunch.
The American Bison scene as "seen" from the lower level seating at the Garden Grill Lunch.
The buffalo are eating lunch at the Garden Grill Restaurant too! (This is a view of the "Living with the Land" attraction from the restaurant, which is above the boat path.)
The last scene from the attraction below is a farmhouse, complete with a barking dog on the front porch!
