Olivia's at OKW

We went to Olivia's at OKW tonight. It's was so good.. We are not on the dining plan and planned on sharing our meals. Three adults: we shared the crab cakes, Caesar salad and shrimp poor boy sandwich. All of our selections were great. The salad was very large, even though it was on the appetizer section. The crab cakes were small but full of flavor. We choose the chips with the shrimp sandwich.
The restaurant is very pretty with the holiday decorations. It was crowded, but we only had to wait about 15 minutes without an ADR. We arrived at about 7:40. Don't hesitate to try this great place. Have you been there too? What do you think?

We usually stay at OKW and have eaten at Olivia's many times. They sometimes serve a fried chicken that I love. I also love the little Key Lime tart for dessert. They used to have prime rib that was very good, but I haven't seen that the last few times we've eaten there. I agree - the place is a gem.

I have only eaten at Olivia's for breakfast (a few times). I've had the most amazing Eggs Benedict, Banana Bread French toast and Bloody Mary there. Amazing.

SSSHHHHH!!

Really, Olivia's is the best kept secret on all of property.
I have been preaching Olivia's on DIS for a year now.

The servers and Managers seem to really like their jobs and customers.
The food id great. We ate there Tuesday and I think I found an all new favorite dessert, The Mascarpone Cheesecake. I use to think the Ohana Bread Pudding was the king until Tuesday.

I wish I would have been able to try the bread pudding for dessert, I was just too full. I have also tried the banana bread french toast in the past. We were very happy overall with our stay at OKW.

Another vote for the Meatloaf Special..

And yes it is WDW's best kept secret, though maybe not anymore.

I believe I've seen that although Olivia's is an all-day menu, the Prime Rib is one of those "after-5-pm-only" dishes.

But what is the Meatloaf Special?

They were able to pack up dessert for us. Too much food and sooo good! So we opened our dessert later in our room for a late night snack. Yummy!

Posts like this are why it is becoming increasingly important to make ADRs there! . We always make them just to be safe.

We eat at Olivia's for breakfast at least twice on our trips. Love the Banana Bread French Toast!

If you haven't tried it yet

give the seafood omlet a try. I have had it three times this year and it was amazing. If you are into sharing it could easily be split between two people. We had dinner there two weeks ago and I had the red grouper which was delicious and my adventerous wife had the bacon cheeseburger. Their burgers are one of the best on property. The homemade chips are so good!!
