    I would have to say Tony's in the MK. We had ADRs and waited and waited and waited while other parties with ADRs after us were seated. My granddaughter who was a mere toddler at the time was really getting antsy. After we finally got seated the meal was just mediocre at best. The manager comped us our dessert.

    A close second would be O'hana. We had dinner there 2 times with the same results. Meal was rushed and the meat was tough and the service was really lacking (we did like the dessert). We found the breakfast was much better.

    I'm shocked to see Coral Reef on here - Hubby and I ate there on our honeymoon and it ended up being our favorite of the trip, and we ate at a different table service every night!

    My least favorite is Kouzzina service/atmosphere - not because of the food, but because of the service. They had a huge issue in charging it back to our DDP (long story, not going to go into it).

    Least favorite food/atmosphere - Sci-Fi diner

    While we were there, there was a disabled elderly man. The cast members let their family sit him on the bench and had a family member PUSH them all the way into the corner. It was such a horrific thing to witness that I was actually happy we left before I had to see them manhandle him out of the booth. There was disabled seating open where they would have been comfortable, but it was not the "best view" of the screen for his family to enjoy.

    Horrible

    I have 3: Garden Grill, 50's Prime Time and Liberty Tree Tavern. We did not care for the food at any of these.

    I think you're thinking about Backlot Express rather than ABC Commissary....This is right across from the Jedi Academy stage....There is nothing you can see (really) from the ABC Commissary but walkway....It's kind of like an alleyway.....

    Imagine my surprise when reading this post and thinking "holy cow this person must have been there the same time that I was I saw that same thing! Oh...wait. Starryice is my wife. Uh... yeah. Nevermind."

    Yeah watching that disabled gentleman get pushed around made me want to leave immediately. I have NO idea how they planned to get him out of that booth, but I just couldn't be around to see it in fear that I would end up breaking something over someone's head for being such a sorry excuse of a person.

    But aside from that, the food was bad. Not only was the food bad, but the lighting was so low I couldn't even see my food. So... is my steak done properly? I have no idea. Can't see it. Oh well, let's take a bite! BLEEEECH yeah that was pure grizzle I just bit into.

    The place advertises that you get to watch old sci fi movies. That's wrong. What you really get are commercials for old sci fi movies. Hey, you want to sit and watch a 35 minute commercial loop while eating? Wow sign me up!

    The server we had was quite possibly the most intrusive and annoying person I have ever encountered in a restaurant. He was CONSTANTLY telling everyone what was coming up on the screen in a minute, so that we could take a picture. Dude... GO. AWAY.

    Just a miserable place to try and enjoy a meal.

    Thumbs down

    My worst is La Cantina de San Angel ---- the newer take-out one. We were there at night. There was no place to sit and there were long lines and we did not enjoy the food. We had 2 young children with us and were finally able to crowd onto a bench and balance the trays so that they could eat.

    We had been there for the food festival and there were tables up around the Mexican Pyramid, but they took them down when the Food Festival ended. It would be nice if they left the tables there year-round, especially now that they've added this takeout location.

    Nine Dragon's or whatever it was called in '99. The food was very bland & the atmosphere was.....well there was none. It reminded me of being in a local Chinese food restaurant during off hours.

    Also in 05' we were disappointed with the Plaza Restaurant.

    No plans of returning to either.

    Coral Reef! It's the worst! We've had two very bad experiences ( service and food) there and now just can't bring ourselves to waste that kind of money on a terrible experience. Especially when there are many GOOD dining options at Epcot!

    (the ABC Commissary isn't good either)

    Like many have said, I'm not going to say never, but rather not likely about the Polynesian Luaua. Very disappointed in the food. Not worth the price.

    On a disheartening note, we ate at Ohana's last trip. My DW and DD8 kept saying, "It's a beautiful location," when I'd ask if they liked it here. That's code for: "We're not liking the food so we'll say something nice about the place." fresh slabs of meat on fire!! How do you not like that???!!! Sadly, that may end up on the never list.

    If you asked me before our most recent trip, Coral Reef would have been at the top. We hadn't been there since 2000 or 2001. Our experience was horrible. One hour wait WITH ADRs. Food was just so-so. However, on our last trip, we gave it another shot. Seated quickly. Our waiter was exemplary. The food was terrific. SBETigg, you may want to give them another chance.

    The Luau. The food was horrible and so was the show.
    We believed in our idea - a family park where parents and children could have fun- together

    Not

    quadstriker, that really is sad to hear about. it's so crazy how people's experiences vary so much from place to place. we have always enjoyed the atmosphere, and it always freaked me out how quiet it is sometimes.
    Next trip - Sep29-Oct4! Free QS dining at POP. First trip with both kids. (6th total visit)

    Crystal Palace for us. The place was dirty and the food was just awful. Our omelets didn't even look like omelets! Hubby and I were so disgusted there.
