I love Olivia's, probably b/c OKW is one of our favorite resorts ;) The portions are big so we can get 2 meals out of them (thanks to the villa kitchen!) It's usually not crowded, the CM's are some of the best & friendliest around and it's a very relaxing atmosphere even when it is full. And I love the Sultry Seahorse...they go down way to easily LOL My DS swears their chocolate milk shakes are the best.

Looks like someone is taking advantage of Cast Members 40% off deal ;)

Our favorites are Sanna, Captains Grill, Turf Club or Trails End. Right now, Sanaa would be #1 pick

I think the food at ESPN is terrific if you sre just looking for some Americanized food like burgers, hot dogs, etc. We enjoy it there on occasion. They have a great pulled pork sandwich and terrific appetizers.

The atmosphere of Sanaa looks amazing and the view out the window definitely adds to that. And, from what I have seen through photos since I have not been there myself, the food seems to be really good as well. Both the Tandoori Chicken and the Lamb Kefta look delicious.

Crappy as in not giving a good performance or crappy as in too over the top. My daughter chose this as the 1 restaurant where she wants to eat. She wants us to be treated rudely... should we do 50's Prime Time instead??

Crappy as in never bringing drink refills and then acting affronted when she was asked for them ("I know! I saw!")...and then still not bringing the drink refills.

It might just have been that one though--lots of other people rave about this place. Personally, I'd take 50's Prime Time over this in a heartbeat.

i would do Sanaa or Kouzzina myself

I would avoid Trails End. It takes forever to get to and is roughly equivalent to KFC for food

We've been to the Whispering Canyon a number of times because we usually stay at the Wilderness Lodge. It seems that I keep forgetting that I don't like it there. My hot water for tea is never hot and they never bring me milk. My food is usually cold and the staff doesn't come around enough to ask for anything. After our last visit, I told my son to remind me that we won't be going there again.

Thank you! Everyone always totally raves about that place--I was beginning to think I was the only one neg on it. There are just too many choices to tolerate that kind of service, particularly when you know you're going to give them 18% with the TIW.

Now if I can only find someone that doesn't love Raglan Road, I'll be golden...

We went to Whispering Canyon 2 saturdays ago because we were in MK and that was the only restaurant with availability for us with the 40% off. The food is not the best I've eaten at WDW but our waitress (M.T.) was hilarious. My son asked for tea and I asked for Diet Coke, when it came my son didn't like the tea so we switched, he then asked her if she could bring him a coke, and after telling the whole restaurant what a cry baby he was he got the big jar of coke. Later when the food came my husband got up to take a picture of us eating and she yelled: "Sir, it looks like you've never seen food in your life, sit down and eat"...and things like that happened all thru our lunch. I would not come back based on the food, but it was still fun and we enjoyed the discount.

I haven't been able to get into Raglan Road (or rather, I didn't want to wait), but the take out place right next door is great. The best chicken.

Went to Olivia's last night, and I have to say, this has become our favorite restaurant. Both times we've been there the service and the food are great.They had a meatloaf special with mashed potatoes and veggies that was great (reminded of the Prime Time). my son had the chicken in mango glazed and I had the clam chowder and mojito shrimp with johnny cakes. We raved so much about the pineapple bread that our waitress (Jennifer she was great) gave us 2 to bring home. no extra charge
