Help with where to eat one meal? (for a foodie- but in park attire)

Going to WDW for one day (disney cruise port of call)
We're planning on being there all day because ofcourse I can't even imagine spending only ONE day at WDW, so I'm certainly not going to cut it into a short day LOL
This means we won't be eating lunch/dinner on the ship.
We can do with one big meal and munching on other things throughout the day before or after that meal.

I was thinking maybe trying to get dinner at BOG but it appears you have to dress up- it says don your finery for a formal dinner, so I'm not sure park attire will be appropriate.

Likewise it appears that Cali Grill we might be a big under dressed (at least somewhat) - although that's something I'd love to do.

So where else could we eat a nice later lunch or dinner where the food is yummy (foodies in our bunch LOL) that it would be ok to attend in your park attire (meaning guys in long shorts- but probably not collared shirts, daughter in shorts or capris, me in capris/sandals but not a super dressy shirt for a park day that's going to be all day without a trip back to the resort that doesn't exist for us on this trip LOL)

This is our first time to go with Chris- so we don't want to cut it short to get back on the ship early enough to have dinner on the ship but I also don't want to just do walk up counter service food all day (in my experience it's not that good at all and way overpriced. We would prefer to pay more for a buffet or sit down lunch or dinner and for the atmosphere/service as well)

So any suggestions? I'm a bit behind on even what restaurants are even around anymore or anything new. Most likely we'll be hanging at Magic Kingdom the entire day but we could venture out to resort restaurants if necessary (similar to Cali Grill) but not something that might take hours to just get there and back by buses. What do you suggest?
