Butterbeer information: The butterbeer drink does contain a milk derivative(Sodium Caseinate -- same as in dole whips) but does not contain eggs.

The bartender at Hogs Head told me that the dairy is not in the topping but is in the actual liquid of the drink.

On Wednesday I finally got around to eating at Mythos! It was great! Another place in IOA I'm a fan of is Three Broomsticks, I love the fish and chips and atmosphere!

And in City Walk I love Bubba Gumps! My favorite is Cajun Shrimp wit a side of fries.


Can't really comment on the studios because we've never actually had a meal in there except at Mels. Mels wasn't that good...

IdesOmarch 03-18-2011 03:25 PM

You pretty much hit it. Mythos is my favorite restaurant period, not just on site.

But another good one is Tchoup Choup. I recommend a dinner there, very classy cool place, cool ambience, with a fairly interesting menu. For casual table dining Jakes is also great, also at the RP.

mesaboy2 03-18-2011 03:35 PM

Just when I started to go :rolleyes:, I realized this will be the sticky. :thumbsup2

City Walk: Bubba Gump Shrimp Company, for good theming and good food.
IoA: Three Broomsticks, for great theming and decent food. Haven't tried Mythos yet.
Studios: Defer to others, I can only say I was not impressed with Mel's Diner.

Bluer101 03-18-2011 03:41 PM

US: Finnegan's
IOA: Confisco's Grill
City Walk: Margaritaville
HRH: Beach Club
RPR: Jake's

Metro West 03-18-2011 04:47 PM

I will sticky this thread so people can come and offer recommendations and ask questions about dining at Universal Orlando.

patster734 03-18-2011 04:53 PM

My dining suggestions:

IOA - Mythos (lunch - table service) , Croissant Moon Bakery (breakfast - counter service)

US - Finnegan's (lunch - table service), Louie's (lunch - counter service), Nathan's Hotdog Stand in Amity (lunch/snack - counter service), Boulangerie (breakfast - counter service).

Citywalk - Margaritaville (lunch or dinner - table service), The Latin Quarter (dinner - table service), Hard Rock Cafe (lunch or dinner - table service), Bubba Gumps (lunch or dinner - table service), Emeril's (dinner - table service), Pastamore Market Cafe (breakfast only! - counter service), Pat O'Briens (alcoholic drinks in the Piano Bar in the evening).

RPR - Islands Dining Room (breakfast buffet), Emeril's TChoup Chop (dinner - table service), Jake's American Bar (dinner or late night snack - table service).

PBH - Sal's (lunch - counter service), Tratorria (breakfast buffet - inferior to RPR's bb imo).

HRH - The Kitchen (breakfast buffet - also inferior to RPR's bb imo)

Lots of these suggestions are counter service. Perhaps people can make sure to add if their choices are counter or full service.

B's Marie 03-18-2011 09:11 PM

Dinner: Emeril's Tchoup Chop definitely! RPR

Lunch: Mythos US-- haven't had dinner there, but we imagine it would be just as good!


Avoid the 2 for 1 churros special in the parks (it just means they need to unload the stale ones quickly:rolleyes1)

I would recommend:

Thunder Falls Terrace, Blondie's, Comic Strip Cafe and The Burger Digs for counter service.

Another vote for finnegan's at Universal Studios. Last time we went, I had the Tipperary Corned Beef Sandwich (fresh baked pretzel roll piled with warm corned beef. Topped with sauteed onions and Swiss Cheese. Served with wedge fries.) and it was delicious! :cool1::thumbsup2

LuvMickey36 03-19-2011 08:59 PM

have a few ? about restaurants in both parks and pastamore in CW. I have my mythos & confiscos character breakfast ressies along with the scooby doo ressie @ the kitchen. Most of what I have seen so far is mainly table service rest. My ds is 8 & I am interested in snack and counter service places that he will enjoy. Of course it would be nice if the food was great/good at all of them, but I am more interested in the "theme" and such. I really want him to enjoy himself and have fun. I hope that makes sense. I mean, Chef Mickey and Sci Fi have stinky food, but he loves them both so we go kwim? Any suggestions will be appreciated!!!! TIA!

Not a lot of the counter service restaurants are heavily themed like Disney but he would probably enjoy Thunder Falls Terrace (my favorite counter service at IOA), The Burger Digs (located in the JP Discovery Center) and Comic Strip Cafe. At the Studios, Mel's is themed after a 1950's drive-in but the food is hit or miss. I have to mention one other place that is often missed at the Studios. If your son likes hot dogs and can eat a lot, you've got to try The Midway Grille in the Amity section of the park. The dogs are huge and very good! Just thought I would mention it.

If you can catch it open, the Monsters Cafe in the Studios has mediocre food but amazing theming. The trouble is that it is usually only open during HHN or during extremely crowded periods. It's a pity.

As for the topic, our favorites are Margaritaville and the Nascar Cafe in Citywalk, Thunder Falls Terrace and the Three Broomsticks in IOA and the Boulangerie and Louie's in the Studios. We had a real nice lunch in the Confisco Grille last year but the service was sloooowwww.
