as you know i really want to stay onsite for a few nights next trip.
so what are your favourite onsite restaurants, and your least favourite restaurants and why!!
Well, you know one of my all time favorites is Beach Club's Cape May dinner buffet. I love it because I love shellfish, and because it's truly a buffet that has something for everyone, beef, pasta, chicken, mash, ribs, lovely vegetable choices, and fabulous desserts.
I like Yachtsmans Steakhouse for beef, of course although it has changed over the years... it still is a nice place to go.
For a non-fancy lunch we like to go to Bongo's walk up window for a cuban sandwich and pappas (mashed potato done up lovely!). Also, we like Cooke's of Dublin (walk up at Raglan Road) for fish and chips. Quite nicely done, and fresh.
Oh, and we really like most of the walk up counter service places in EPCOT. There is a huge variety there, and everyone can choose from what they like throughout the countries.
Germany and Morocco are really fun places to eat dinner (or lunch) as they have entertainment.
We avoid House of Blues (absolutely inedible the last time we went, won't be returning) Planet Hollywood (nothing to recommend it for us, loud, expensive and poor service) and Prime Time 50's Cafe in DHS (because of the scary interaction with the servers!!! ).
Hope that helps a bit Mick!
Might be best to start eliminating places based on what the menu has to offer? If you don't like what's on the menu it's an easy miss then, yeah?
OH! Forgot to mention Sunshine Season's Food Fair in EPCOT (In future world). It's a GREAT place with a huge variety of things. Not crazy prices either. Good for any meal of the day.
Remember too, Mick that you find your best value (and sorry to say, best food) offsite now. Have a meal or two onsite, everyone likes a bit of Disney Dinner Magic, but for real budget help, plan on eating offsite for the most part.
Not sure how you feel about bringing in your own food (to the Disney parks) but that's perfectly reasonable, and a great way to have a decent lunch without breaking the bank!
ok thanks tink will look at those you mentioned.Originally Posted by Tink, post: 264167
i was only thinking of eating onsite while we stayed onsite. im planning on 2 weeks in orlando, one week at the parks, then a week seeing the sites. take in an airboat ride, a riverboat cruise on the st johns river which is highly recommend to me by my uncle. then any other places of interest i can find out about. then a week on the gulf coast at cape coral in a newly build friend villa hopefully
Mick our favorite on-site TS restaurants are JIKO, Yachtsman Steak House, Artist Point and California Grill.
QS - Casey's, Tangierine Cafe, or as Tink says just about any walk up in EPCOT.

thanks johnOriginally Posted by uscwest, post: 264170
ive heard a lot of good things about jiko's so thats a very good possibility, will have a look at the menu and if its ok i'll add it to my itinery spreadsheet
My pick - Yachtsman or Flying Fish
(Le Cellier is also *still* a favorite, even with the recent decline.)
Jon loves Germany (for the beer, mostly) and Flying Fish for the food
Andrew loves Chefs de France for the Grilled Cheese
Baleigh - well she's an odd one - she once ate only a sandpail full of snowcone at Ohana's, three papercup full's of pickle chips at Epcot, and the Kitchen Sink at Beaches & Cream - so she's a bit of a loose cannon
Ya gotta go to the 50's Prime Time at DHS!
You haven't lived till your server tells you to get your elbows off the table and eat all your vegetables or you'll get to go stand in the corner.
Besides, the desert menu on the Viewmaster is almost worth the trip!
