If you were paying OOP...
 
...which non-park restaurant would you choose for dinner and why? 4 adults, looking for something fun and tasty that won't break the bank.

Raglan Road at DTD. Fun and tasty.

Kouzzina (BW) - nice selections especially for sharing
The Wave (CR) - overall good menu, relaxing, casual atmosphere
Il Mulino -(Swan-although can be a little pricey)- very good Italian, also good for sharing, nice atmosphere
Paradiso 37 - fun place to hang out, great margaritas, decent food, neat atmosphere, outside seating which is beautiful at sunset (DTD-can be a little loud)

Another vote for Raglan Road in Downtown Disney! Great food and excellent service. We eat early so we miss the dancing and band.

By non-park, do you mean not in a park or not on Disney Property? If you want a meal out of the park but on the Disney property, then Trails End at Fort Wilderness would be my recommendation. It's an all you can eat home style buffet that many people overlook but it has some great food and is really cheap compared with other similar restaurants around WDW. If you are looking for a restaurant completely off property, I'd head to US 192 or International Drive where you can find all of the usual chain restaurants, Olive Garden, Outback etc.

We really enjoyed Whispering Canyon in Wilderness Lodge. If you like bbq, it's a good choice and the skillets don't disappoint. The restaurant is really fun - the wait staff are pretty humorous (don't ask for ketchup!). We paid OOP and I don't remember it being crazy expensive but it's a WDW table service so I'm sure it's not cheap. I seem to remember asking if my husband and I could split a skillet and I think they let us do it. It's alot of food!

I'll second Trails End at Fort Wilderness. It is cheapest buffet and while not fun at the restaurant, you can take a boat from MK to get there, or a boat from CR on the loop to get there, which are certainly fun.

Bongos is fun in DTD.

The skillet is an 'all you can eat' deal. You can't split an order. Each person eating the skillet is charged the full price.

Downtown Disney:

Ragland's, the food is very good with lots of options, music and table dancing, fun. Not too expensive. The braised beef is the best!

Wolfgang Puck Express for a very good and affordable counter service! The bacon wrapped meatloaf is out of this word good!

We also enjoy some of the resort restaurants, Olivia's at OKW, fun, tropical, casual setting with affordable food. Love the conch fritters! We also enjoy Kouzzina at the Boardwalk, reasonable, I recommend the appetizer platter with shrimp, hummus, olives etc. and the whole roasted fish!

We always pay OOP and many of these offer discounts if you have AP's or the TIW card!

we are paying OOP for Ohana this trip cause it is worth every penny! the food is sooooo good, i love walking around @ the polynesian, the whole atmosphere! when you are finished with dinner just walk right out on the beach and watch wishes! oh, can't wait!!!!

It's not a table service restaurant, but we always LOVE Earl of Sandwich. It is a must stop for us.

Sanaa!!

stargazertechie 01-21-2013 05:22 PM

Boma or Whispering Canyon Cafe

GJF323 01-21-2013 05:56 PM

Definitely Boma. I'm never on DDP and always eat at Boma at least once.

arissavolk 01-21-2013 10:51 PM

I second Sanaa- the bread appetizer and dessert sampler and the entree where you pick multiple items are a fabulous way to try lots of things for a good price- and if it's not dark out, you can see the animals right from the windows!
