I think Giordanos Pizza is one of those must do experiences (if you like that sort of thing).

They make HUGE pizza pies, which are nothing like I've seen in the UK! Very filling too. They're a kind of deep filled, upside down pizza pie - toppings on the bottom, then TONS of cheese, then sauce on top. They're just yummy!

Cheesecake Factory was excellent. Mind you I could only cope with a starter as a main course...it was huge.
I also really like Johnny Rockets. The food is ok but I just like the whole 1950's Americana feeling to it. I feel like I am on the set of Grease!
On site at Disney I still really think Wolfgang Puck is excellent. Don't think I have ever had a bad meal in there and their Crème Caramel is to die for.
We really are not into lumps of meat or burgers/hot dogs etc are tend to go for salads and other items over anything that looks beige and brown...

Well you have Friendlys, which does family friendly cheap meals, speciality ice cream.
There's a Ben and Jerry's store over the road.
Tony Roma's a few doors up, good for ribs.
Olive Garden a few doors up nice - chain - Italian.
TGIs across the road, bar and cheap restaurant, mainly burgers etc.
Johnny Rockets over the road - burgers, shakes, fries.
Marlow's Tavern - nice bar with food.
Millers Ale House and Bahama Breeze over the road - not a fan but others rave.
There's also a Subway and a Dominoes over the road for fast food.

If you're looking for something a bit more special, try Capital Grille or Fogo de Chao.

All of these are within 5 minutes walk of your hotel.

Definitely Orlando ale house and tony romas near that location, there are a ton of places you can walk to, so you can have a drink without worrying how your going to get back. We've had a number of good nights at the Orlando ale house.
