We've only been to WDW twice (way back in 2002 and 2005) I feel that I am not picky AT ALL....

But sadly, Tony's at MK was nasty. I would rather open up a can of Chef Boyardee than eat there.

H&V is easily in first. The food was horrible multiple visits in a row. The staff was rude and the place was filthy.

Coral Reef didn't live up to expectations either. Service was mediocre. Food was barely serviceable.

I've only gotten one meal I didn't care for at WDW, at the Pop Century food court. But I had other meals there that were good.

I didn't care for the rowdy atmosphere at Cosmic Ray's, especially at the fixings bar. They should put up some kind of railing around it so that everybody has to go in one end, move in the same direction, and come out on the other end in a relatively orderly fashion. But the food was good.

Tony's in MK, by far. The food, atmosphere, wait (despite an ADR), servers----all horrible.

November 2012-
CRT. The food was horrible, and the service less than mediocre. To top it off, my husband found hair in his dessert. We told the waitress and she didn't seem to care. We also told the staff on the way out. They didn't seem to care either. The princesses hardly had time for us. The photograph with Cinderella was extremely rushed. We weren't even all posed before they snapped it. The photo CMs also tried to refuse our photopass +. Next time we will stick to Akershus. That was a great experience.

Not sure if I mentioned it here or on another thread, but neither me nor my fiance' would ever go back to Mama Melrose. We both had completely different meals, and couldn't find 1 thing to rave about.

If there was some kind of revamping of the place, we may revisit it again. Last time we were there was 2010.
Home for Christmas. POR December 10-17th PTR

Paradiso 37 at DTD. The service was ABYSMAL and the food was not nearly as exciting as the menu made it sound. I am just glad my toddler didn't have a meltdown or a fit at the table there.
First trip with DS1 10/27 - 11/2/12.

First trip with DS2 4/29 - 5/8/14.

With as often as menu's change and staff change, I would have a hard time saying "I will never go back" I have had great meals at Ohana, but it comes up time and time again. I loved Coral Reef the last time (March 2011) I went and can't wait to go back next month. I think people fail to understand that buffet meals are going to be just that, a buffet. Any place you go, including WDW, you are going to observe messy food areas, people being unsanitary, bland food etc...

I am going to Coral Reef, Ohana and Chef Mickey in about a month and cant wait !!!

Could not agree more. Last time I was there, I had an expensive strip steak that was a full one-third gristle. But that was OK because the 6 pieces of penne pasta that accompanied it sure filled me up.

That was our second and final try for MM.

We've also tried H&V (never again) and Sci-Fi, which was horrible and we've never been back. Strangely, we've eaten at Tony's 3-4 times and enjoyed it every time, but we never order dishes with red sauce, so that may be a factor.

Via Napoli was quite tasty but so outrageously overpriced that we joke about it still today. We'll eat elsewhere unless we have the dining plan, thank you very much.

We ate lunch at Akershus and I really hated my salmon burger. The restaurants where we live make a salmon burger with a whole piece of grilled salmon, but this was actually a ground, fried, patty. Just wasn't what I expected and was fishy. Everyone else was happy with their choices.

I know that Magic Kingdom doesn't have the best Counter Service Options, but Cosmic Rays was the worst even with the toppings bar. The burger was pretty much a Hockey puck and seemed to be under a heat lamp for a while even though I had to wait for it a few minutes.
Four trips when I was a kid.

I would not go to Chef Mickey's again, over hyped and mostly I agree with you.

Also a never again for me would be Tony's Town Square. And I'd be hard pressed to try ESPN again after getting food poisoning from the pulled pork.

However.... on my last trip I tried a place we'd had a bad service experience at many years ago and hadn't returned but this time around was perfect... Rose and Crown.

And we tried San Angel Inn which gets a lot of bad reviews but our food was really good.

So who really knows....

We are toward the end of our trip and there are two restaurants I won't return to.

Chef Mickey was awful, food wasn't so great - they got rid of the toppings for ice cream there use to be so now there are just two. It also took us 40 mins to be seated and our waitress was awful.

Kouzinna was nothing special, we had breakfast there and I didn't care for it.
