I know, I know....Tony's is awful. BUT....

...I am dead set and determined to try it for myself this trip. I have always been scared away by the bad reviews for both Tony's and Chef's, but some sick and twisted part of me wants to give them a shot. I have a 8:25 ADR, and MSEP starts at 9, so I'm hoping we can can get lucky with a patio table to catch a glimpse of the parade. (If we don't, my heart will go on.)

So....if you were forced to eat at Tony's (under penalty of never being able to enter Disney property again if you refuse), what would you order?

TIA!

Awwwww....I have not had a bad meal at Tony's. A few years ago, I was lucky enough to dine there on Thanksgiving day. We were seated on the patio and had a perfect view of the parade.

Enjoy your meal!

You should try it for yourself. I didn't like it and won't pay what they want to eat there, but that doesn't mean someone else wouldn't like it.

We really liked Tony's. My chicken parm didn't blow my socks off or anything, but it was good. The chicken was really moist and not heavily breaded (just the way I like it), the marinara was bland in comparison to my own cooking, but pretty on par with any chain restaurant. The portion size was HUGE. My daughter inhaled her spaghetti and meatball (and still talks about that huge meatball 2 years later).

The pistachio creme brulee was the BEST dessert I've ever had at Disney. We're going again this October just so I can get that dessert (and probably that shrimp scampi because it looks delish!).

Give it a shot!

You know, you know? But you've never been?

Some of us like TONY's.

You might, too.

I would caution against the chicken parm myself... but people love the fried zucchini, calamari, pumpkin soup (don't know if that's seasonal) and tiramisu

Which is why I asked for opinions on what to order.

And the "I knows" are figures of speech. Sorry for the confusion.

DS likes calamari, so he'll be happy to hear that Tony's offers it!

Our family of 3 has eaten there twice. Sorry to say I don't remember what any of us had, but I do know we were all happy with our meals both times. Hope you enjoy.

I'm always amazed on these boards at the number of people who are scared off of restaraunts because of what others say. When it comes to food, music and movies I trust one person's opinion...mine. That's not say I disregard others opinions on everything, but I take them with a large grain of salt. You may love Tony's...you may not, but you won't know until you try it.

Oh, I'd order the Cioppino and Tiramisu, and an ice cold Peroni.

Is Tony's the only restaurant that serves the pistachio creme brulee? I've heard great things about it....
