Tony's or Sci-fi

If you had to choose, which would you pick:

Tony's at MK for lunch


Sci Fi at Hollywood Studios for dinner?

Sci fi we love that place atmosphere is fun and we have never had a bad meal, Tony's not a hit with us at all. You are probably going to land up with opinions that will land you 50/50 for both. Hope you are happy with your choice

Sci Fi, they have some decent burgers. I haven't been to Tony's in many years because it was pretty bad last time I went.

Sci Fi is my favorite Disney restaurant. It's definitely more of an attraction/experience than just a meal and we never ever miss it. The food is great too and they have the best milkshakes I've ever had.

I really like both and generally do both on every trip. However, both are better for lunch, IMHO. Lunch at Tony's is usually a nice respite from the parks with decent food (I mean, I like the food, but I'm not expecting mind-blowing Italian food). I haven't much cared for dinner at either.

Sci Fi is a must do for us. The food is not out-of-this-world good, but the burgers & milkshakes are pretty tasty, and the atmosphere is great. We have only had lunch at Sci Fi, though, never dinner, so I'm not sure what differences there may be between the two meals.

We have never been to Tony's.

Hasn't Sci-Fi changed to an all-day menu?

I prefer Sci-Fi, but I thought they had recently converted to an all-day menu(same thing, same price at lunch and dinner). Tony's has never really impressed me.

Never eaten at Tony's, but we did enjoy Sci-Fi. I wanted to eat there again this year, but DH wanted to try some new places (or different meals at the same places we've been to).

Honestly, I would pick neither. BUT if I had to choose it would be Sci-Fi.
