Just Back - Dining Review
We spent Nov 1-8 stuffing our faces all over Disney World and were on the whole very pleased. We had my parens with us, who hadn't been to WDW since the 80s and didn't know what to expect - they loved the food. We were on the regular DP.

I booked this only because my parents were flying in late and we had a full day the following day. I didn't want to be running all over the place to eat this night. Our ADR was for 6:30 and we didn't sit down until 7:30. The place was in a full blown tizzy. The servers and host staff were completely flustered. Not really sure what was going on there. The food was much better than I was expecting. I was expecting terrible based on reviews. I had the short ribs and they were fabulous. Others in my party had the steak and the roast chicken and really enjoyed both. I didn't love the dessert selection but others loved the PB banana cake. All in all I'd say this is a good meal, though they need to get their seating worked out. Or maybe it was an isolated occurrence.. who knows.

I booked this for traditions sake. We love the characters and location and napkin twirling party. The food, however, was actually better than usual. The salmon was cooked perfectly and we always love the mashed potatoes. I could eat just those. The dessert selection here is great.

AMAZING. We all agreed this was a great meal. The desserts were fanstastic and I am not even a big sweets eater. I had the apple crumble thing and wow it was amazing. The Serious Steak was enjoyed by several of us. The kids also enjoyed their meals there. My son, 10, had the adult burger and loved it. I had a bite and it was really great. The Irish dancers are fun!!! We will definitely be going back here.
Nov 4 - Akershus and Biergarten
The cold bar at Akershus was really good. We love smoked fish. I had the open face beef sandwich and it was small, but seeing as I had been eating huge portions for three days I probably needed that! It was pretty good, though. The squash soup was not great. The princesses seemed rushed and distracted. The princess processional was cute and my daughter got to hold hands with Ariel. She was in heaven. The free family pic with Belle is a nice touch.
Biergarten was a very happy surprise. We all loved it. There is something for everyone here. The buffet is a good mix of comfort food and German specialties. The service was great and the band was so fun. We loved the pretzel rolls and spaetzle. Will definitely be returning for this meal again. Great use of a dining credit.

FABULOUS. Wow. The beef tenderloin was out of this world. Oysters were perfect. We adored this meal. Not cheap, but so very worth it. Great drink selection too. The kids loved their dessert.
Nov 6 - 50s PT
Food was good as always. The service was rushed, not a lot of hijinks. We could hear the CM at the tales behind us however, and he was so funny it made up for it! Dad's brownie sundae, as ridiculously huge as it is, got great reactions from the kids and adults alike.
Nov 7 - Tony's
I ended up having to cancel Ohana at the last second due to a conflict and this was about all I could replace it with. I wanred everyone that it would be bad, but it was ok. My dad got the chicken parm and it was really really good. The canneloni was deemed "pretty good" by my husband. I had the shrimp pasta and it was not bad. The ambiance here was cute and I loved how non-crowded and relaxed it felt. For that reason this may be a hidden gem.
Let me know if you have any questions!
