Boatwrights or Olivia's?

Have never been to either, and want to try one for dinner. Which is better?

Ok, I'll be different.

I love Olivia's. They have a lot of items that appeal to me. I have eaten there several times over the years, including Nov. '13 and always enjoyed my meal.

I ate at Boatwright's in July '13. Most of the items on the menu are too spicy for my tastes although I must admit that the corn bread is wonderful.

We've only tried Olivia's for breakfast and loved it! Can't comment on the dinner there though, but the menu looks pretty good!

Olivia's for us. A must-do on every trip even when we don't stay at the resort. Great service and food. Eating outside in temperate weather is great fun.

Slight edge to Boatwright's for food and restaurant...

Definite edge to Boatwright's for proximity to post-dinner entertainment.

Olivia's! Go there for breakfast every trip!

Yes, I pay my respects to Mr. Toad every time I exit the Haunted Mansion. No, I won't go on Winnie the Pooh!...

We've eaten at and enjoyed both, but definitely prefer Boatwrights. I just wished Boatwrights still served breakfast. We used to love their sweet potato pancakes.
