We have had dinner ressies for biergarten in Germany on two or three occasions and just always found an excuse to cancel. Well last week I was determined to go and daggonit, I LOVED IT! It was my favorite over chefs de France AND BOG! Now mind you my family doesn't agree with that last part but they DID like it a lot too.

I think the 2 places that were a nice surprise for me was also Olivia's at OKW and Cape May at the Beach Club. DH didn't like Cape May but I did. And the kids, who all 3 love Crab legs really enjoyed it.

We ate here in January (Crew's Cup) after the 1/2 Marathon and it was a total surprise! We both enjoyed it and we own at the BCV so you would have thought we would have been there before but we always walked on by. We'll definitely eat there again.

We have been very impressed by Raglan Road (DH still talks about the shepherd's pie!) and Teppan Edo (DH isn't an "Asian-food fan".....but this was his favorite meal from our honeymoon in 2009).

It was a hard sell using 2 meal points, but we were in a packed park with plans to see F!, so it seemed like a wise decision. Made reservations at 11 am for 5 pm same day. Much finer dining than we expected and all agreed that we would actually pay cash for a meal of that caliber. Also, came with the bonus of an appetizer on the F! package. We were a table of 7, all ordered different items and all very happy.

The Plaza- remarkably nice to get out of the chaos for an hour or so in the middle of the day

Grand Floridian Cafe - similar reason - a welcome break from character breakfasts

Earl of Sandwich - suprised by just how good they are - especially the Holiday sandwich

CRT breakfast - i know not many will agree with me on this one but I was so hesitant to try given the cost and the reviews that when we finally did I couldn't believe how much I loved the breakfast. Thinking of the stuffed french toast makes me smile every time.

The Plaza as a PP said it is a great break form the parks the service & the food was great. GF Cafe we have done Breakfast & Dinner. Cape May Breakfast when we took DS on his first trip we decided to take a day off from the parks, relax & swim. Went down to the Front Desk & asked where we should go to Breakfast & The CM looked and saw an opening at Cape May I took it but thought if we could get in short noticed must not be much. We loved it.

Boatwrights had a surprisingly good breakfast. I was sad that they discontinued it.

The big one that comes to mind is Jiko. We had it booked for our summer 2008 trip with SIL and her family. They selected it and I was NOT looking forward to it. I thought it would be a bit more adventuresome than I prefer. It was delish and is my fave TS place at WDW.

The place I always tell people to try is the Crews cup in the Yatch club. It is a nice little lounge/bar. The food is good, they have steak and burgers. They have truffle fries which are really great.

Its a very family friendly place, not really bright but a nice place to hit up at the end of the night, or for lunch etc.

For us it was Tony's in MK. I read alot of bad reviews & was worried, but the food was great! We plan on going back during our next trip; which will hopefully be soon.
