Not if you want to get out of the touristy areas...which is why this list was posted in the first place.

Mythos reservation

I'm trying to get a reservation to Mythos on Labor Day, but nothing is available according to opentable. What are the chances of a walk up ressie that day, or should I even bother?

Even during slow seasons (we have always gone in November), Mythos gets awfully busy. Is it possible that they just haven't opened up the reservations for that weekend yet on OpenTable?

Maybe try calling directly? I believe there is a number you can call to access reservations for Universal restaurants...? Or call one of the on-site hotels and ask to speak with the concierge, who would have access to the reservation system?

Yeah, the date is available because I can reserve up to Sept 4th, but will only be at IOA on Labor Day.

I tried calling this weekend, and left a vm, but no one has returned my call.

Perhaps you can go during an off time and just get dessert? Better than nothing, I suppose. We actually plan to have dessert there in August just to check the place out.

Hummmm.... that is strange because there are tables the day before and after.

Do they ever close for a private event?

We were there 6/24 to 7/1 and ate there twice. Once we had a ressie and waited about 5 minutes. The other day we did not. The wait time was 45 minutes. We were onsite guests so they told us about 25 minutes. We requested a booth and were seated 20 minutes later.

We love eating there. The food is great and very reasonable.

I wouldn't give up on eating there even is you do not have a reservation.

We have eaten there several times without a reservation. Twice, we have had 7 people in our party. We have always gotten to the restaurant about 10 minutes before it opens. As soon as the doors are opened, we go to the desk and give our name. We waited maybe 15 minutes at the most. We have never been on an actual holiday so I am not sure if your wait would be longer.

This happened to me when trying to make a reservation at a local restaurant at home. They were closed for a private party which might be the case for Mythos that day. I would try calling again or email them.

We all picked a restaurant we wanted to try and we agreed on adding Mythos and Hard Rock. Any suggestions?

Are your choices for both lunch and dinner, or just dinner?

We were impressed with Latin Quarter when we were there a few years ago. You should try adding it to your list if possible. As for your list, I haven't eaten at either Bob Marley of Pat O'Briens so I can't comment on those two restaurants, but your other choices are fine.

Finnegan's at USF is also a good choice for lunch.

Hard Rock is the only lunch. Thanks for your input. I wonder if we are missing out by not eating at The Kitchen since we are staying at HRH. What about restaurants at the other on site resorts. I didn't really. Think about them but. Y hubby LOVES Italian food so I wondered about the restaurant at Portofino. Hmm?

We really liked The Kitchen both times that we ate there. My son and his friend (both 16) chose to eat there and loved it. One evening while we were at The Kitchen for supper, there was a roaming magician who did slight of hand tricks at each table (for tips). It was super cool and I would not skip it, especially as you are staying at the HRH. The other restaurants on your list (except for Mythos which I would not miss) are chains that you could find anywhere, The Kitchen is unique to HRH. I would say do the things unique to UO that you cannot find elsewhere.
