Which resort has the best food court (counter service)?

The title says it all...

Arriving at beach club on apr 11 trying to decide where to eat first. Will not be visiting a park. Also, I am not using the dining plan - paying oop. First solo trip!

Our favorite resort CS is Captain Cooks at the Poly, followed by Roaring Forks at the WL and Mara at AKL.

We loved Port Orleans Riverside Food Court during our stay. We have stayed mostly at Poly and love CC for delicious foods specific to that resort. However, the large variety of foods at POR can't be beat.

I actually enjoy the Flatbread pizzas and sandwiches at The BC Marketplace. Also Hurricane Hannah's at SAB was just renovated and the new menu looks great.
Get ice cream at the BC to go window

My favorite is POR food court. They have a wide variety of items to choose from. Love their salad station. They make them fresh for you while you stand there, and you tell them what you want in the salad, and their croutons and ranch dressing are the best, IMO.

John & Kevin did a review of the new AoA food court. They said it was pretty good with variety. It might be fun to check out the newest resort and have lunch there.

The Mara @ AKL - Captain Cooks @ the Poly - POP also has a great QS - the menu at AOA looks very good.

Have you considered heading to DTD? Earl of Sandwich is a great option when paying OOP.
