*Sorry, I was so hungry that I forgot to take pictures!
I like eating at places off the beaten path, but have never wanted to venture to Olivia’s simply because I thought it would be too remote. During my sister’s recent visit, she requested Olivia’s because the menu sounded good and also because her daughter’s name is Olivia (and she would get a kick out of it). So, off to Old Key West we went. We decided on lunch because it seemed reasonably priced and had fairly good menu options.
Unfortunately, I’ve been having gallbladder problems (yep, it’s going to have to come out), so I need to eat not only gluten free/dairy free, but also low-fat. So, I’ve been more conscious when eating at WDW in the past month or so.
Upon arrival, the chef greeted us and asked what I would like. I think I could have had a lot of the menu options (modified, of course), but worrying about the fat content, I asked for something custom. I really wanted something light (i.e. not a heavy burger). I was interested in something seafood (which can have a higher fat content). We agreed on a seafood salad sandwich with the mayonnaise on the side and a fruit salad instead of fries.
What I received was quite good–crab salad with old bay in it (or some similar type of seasoning) and mayo on the side. I also had fresh fruit–strawberries and blueberries. The crab salad was on a udi’s bun (which I now love!); I ate it open face sandwich style–meaning I only ate 1 part of the bun.
The others eating with me liked their sandwiches; my mom got the Cuban sandwich (which she said was very good) and my sister had the shrimp po’boy (which she loved). Overall, I didn’t find the food to be amazing, but it was solid.
I would give this a 7 out of 10 for options, service, and general ambiance. I hope I get a chance to go back there sometime with less dietary restrictions (related to the gallbladder), and so I can post some pictures!
