View Full Version : My hubby needs some suggestions

12-29-2006, 08:54 AM
Hi Everyone,
We are heading off to WDW in April to celebrate my husband's 45 birthday.
We each like to pick our own restaurant.
I picked the Hoop Dee Doo.
My 5 year old DD picked the princess breakfast at Epcot.
My 8 year old DD picked dinner at Whispering Canyon.
Now it is time for my husband to pick and he can't make up his mind.
He loves good food, but none of us wants to head back and "dress" for dinner.
Where would you experts suggest a great meal with a casual atmosphere?
Thanks for your help!!!!:coffee:

Where are you planning to be on your husband's dinner day?

I second Kona Cafe at the Poly. It was the best meal of our last trip!

Our parks are flexible...we usually plan them around our meals.

We loved Ohana and Le Cellier this trip, both were delicious!

Here's some ideas, depending on where you want to be that day:

Epcot: Le Cellier
MK (Resorts): Concourse Steakhouse or Kona
MGM: Mama Melroses
AKL: Boma
DTD: Wolfgang Puck's or Ragland Road

My DH choices are:
Epcot: Le Cellier
Mk: Liberty Tree Tavern or Chef Mickey's
Mgm: 50's PrimeTime or Sci-Fi Dine inn
Ak: Tusker House or Boma's at AK Lodge
DTD: no recommendation
He would do Ohana's at the Polynesian

If he is a meat lover, try Don Shula's at the dolphin.

'Ohana, without a doubt!! I have never ate so much food at one place in my life. My favorite restaurant hands down!!

I say the Boma for Dinner (or breakfast) but Dinner is something different and good!
They even have good kids food so adults and kids are happy!

We always enjoy the Rose & Crown in EPCOT. Casual pub style with good food and (important to me) cold Bass Ale! If you can get a seat outside in the rear, the view across the lake is awesome!

Boma is a family restaurant serving breakfast and dinner. It will capture the essence of vibrant life in the African marketplace. This family-fun buffet restaurant provides guests the ability to savor the African experience, which has multicultural influences. The restaurant showcases an exhibit kitchen, wood-burning grill and rotisserie.

This is an all you can eat experience, but unlike traditional buffet lines, where you start at one end and work your way across...Boma offers "pods". Each pod has a selection of food and generally a chef nearby to answer questions.

The dinner menu changes daily. This listing gives you an idea of the types of foods, over 60 items offered.

African Breads

Mixed Field Greens:
Mango Vinaigrette, Paw Paw Vinaigrette,
Chili Cilantro Vinaigrette, Balsamic Vinaigrette
Potato Salad
Fresh Fruit

Pasta Salad
Watermelon Rind Salad
Kool Slaai
Chicken Salad with Chili Cilantro

Avocado, Grapefruit, Papaya, Curry Cucumber Salad, Spinach and Beet Salad

Le Cellier. And the waiters are nice. :)

You are going to get a LOT of different responses...
Our favoirtes for adult celebrations would be: LeCellier, Rose & Crown,
Chef Mickeys but biggest vote would probably be 'Ohana...we've done several BD celebrations there and have always had a great time!

I am going to pick one that most people overlook.

The Grand Flordian Cafe.

Nice atmosphere and you can dress in your park gear. The service is great, food is even better. They are so nice and if you like soup try the french onion. Oh and the steaks are the best DH & I have ever had and we love our red meat. Also they work so well to make adjustments if there is one little thing you do not like about your meal. The would have made me the pasta meal with chicken instead of shimp because of an allergy. Also you can order special cakes from there bakery for your DH's birthday!

This one place DH & I cannot wait to go back to!
