Tony's Town Square or Grand Floridian Cafe

Which would you choose for anniversary dinner?

I am gluten free if that makes a difference

If those are the only two options, Grand Floridian Café 10 times out of 10, and twice on Sunday.

Another vote for GF Cafe. Their steak and burger were both great.

Agree, agree! Tried Tony's once and if at all possible would avoid it!!! That leaves Grand Florida Cafe. Don't know why you narrowed it down to these two but I would look at other choices. Check into other options because we have seen the restaurants accomodate for special diets.

Happy Anniversary!

Wow - talk about polar opposites, lol!

For a special occasion, Tony's is not the place to dine. Even if were not a special occasion.......

I dont think i would ever eat at Tony's again unless something changed like the menu food and service. I ate there in once and there is a reason for it

Now the GF Cafe o the oher hand was there several times and i thought it was a very good choice.

Tony's is Crowded!

I didn't mind the food at Tony's, and the service was very good when we were there, but it was CROWDED....we waited several (30 i think) minutes even with an ADR. Lots of kids, too. Wouldn't be my choice for an anniversary dinner. I've never tried GFC, but just being at the Grand Floridian would be nice, and GFC gets great reviews! Whichever you decide....happy anniversary!!!!!!!

I agree GFC. It is really pretty inside and underrated in my opinion. I used to really like Tony's many years ago. Our first visit there was awesome as was our second. It seems like during the last 5 years or so, it has really gone downhill. Each visit has been worse. For some reason, the service we have received there has been really bad too.

Never been to GF cafe, but My celiac Dh loved the seafood pasta they made for him at Tony's and the bruschetta. I have always enjoyed the atmosphere there.

Another vote for GFC.

That's as much a vote for GFC as it is a vote against Tony's.

Let me add my vote for GFC. Hmmmm that's a full page FOR GFC, and one lonely vote for Tony's. I'm seeing a trend.
