Fed up with steak?
After a while the endless steaks in the restaurants can become tedious, even though they are the most tender and tastiest steaks I have ever eaten, I know, I should get out more! Here are a few suggestions to liven up your diet.
Try the Red Lobster for excellent fish dishes and the hot biscuits (cheese scones) they give you to start the meal, are amazing and it is easy to fill up on them before your main course arrives.
Then there are two very good Italian restaurants; The Olive Garden, which I consider to be one of the very best especially the salads and garlic rolls that come before the main course (again – I have yet to eat in a restaurant here that does not include bread and salad). Carrabas is another Italian restaurant though, in my opinion, not as good as The Olive Garden but good food.
There are three Bahama Breeze restaurants which serve a much more European varied menu – it can take most of the evening to read the menu, there is so much choice. There is one on Highway 192, one at Lake Buena Vista and one on International drive. The Lake Buena Vista probably has the nicest setting with an outside bar.
There are many Chinese Restaurants but they are quite pricy as are the Indian Restaurants. However on Highway 192 near the junction with Highway 27, there is the Ace Chinese Buffet. They have an all you can eat lay out of Chinese favourites plus Sushi, English fare, salads and desserts. And all this for $10. 99 per person, plus drinks. (It is a couple of dollars more on Fridays and Saturdays.
Sonny’s Ribs is on Highway 50 at Clermont is very downmarket, BUT the food is great and the restaurant is clean. They serve ribs, pulled pork – shredded, plus chicken and beef. They come with garlic bread, plus a choice of two other side dishes. They have a good salad bar which includes a few dessert dishes. This is by no means fine dining but good wholesome food and drinks served by the gallon! (Well litre glasses anyway).
There are two Joe’s Crab Shacks on Highway 192, one at Celebration and one further up towards the junction of Highway 27. Most of the above do serve steaks as well but this is one of the exceptions.
One to avoid is Boston Lobster, their restaurants are a disgrace! Filthy dirty and I have never stayed long enough to try the food.
