First of all - kudos on such an interesting topic. I don’t think this question has ever been asked before…
I think my list of Restaurants I hate, but everyone likes is probably longer.
Ohana - I do not get it - it’s meat on a stick. Too MUCH meat on a stick - and it’s pretty dry too. The sides used to be pretty good, but even they have gone downhill. Although, the wait staff is usually very nice.
California Grill - ok - “Fusion” is over, it’s done, it’s passe. Why this restaurant thinks it has the right to be pretentious is beyond me. And some of the combinations are just plain dumb. And it’s noisy.
Whispering Canyon - again with the meat! And it’s not even good meat!!
Restaurants I love, but everyone hates.
Chefs de France - The portions are reasonable, the setting is lovely and the creme brulee is just about perfect. OK, I admit it helps if you speak French.
Flying Fish - Beautiful restaurant. Very nice staff. They know how to cook fish.
Columbia Harbour House - I’m surprised so many dislike it. We only go there for one thing - the tuna salad sandwich. It’s just plain yummy. And it’s always quiet upstairs.
Now, don’t start throwing Mickey Bars at me, but the truth is that ever since the DDP came into being, the quality of the food at Disney restaurants has gone downhill. Honestly, I’d rather pay out of pocket for one good meal, instead of eating three bad meals a day.
