This is a great thread!

Personal favorite are Roy's...including the Aloha Hour!, D'Antonio's in Celebration, and Anidamo's at the Hilton in DtD. (We love Italian, but just have a hard time paying the prices inside Disney sometimes...)

I have read most of this thread...was curious, does anyone know of a good Korean restaurant in the area? THAT would be a major score for our next trip if one exists!

We're splitting our Easter stay this year between Windsor Hills (March 29-Apr 2) and Disney (Apr 2-6). Anyone have any opinions on Ale House on 192? We're definitely going to Giordano's, it's a must every trip, and I'd like to try Sweet Tomatoes but also looking for a good steak for the hubby. We'll have the kiddies with us so causal would be good and looking for somewhere new. We have Texas Roadhouse, Lonestar, Outback, Ruth Chris and Fogo at home. Any ideas would be great.

For steak in the Formosa Gardens area - Longhorn Steakhouse would get my vote. Very kid friendly. Its in the Rolling Oaks center off the 192 (the same place as the Super Target).

We love the Ale House at that location. We have been there 2-3 times. They have great lunch specials and we like to share the Zingers Mountain Melt (buffalo chicken on top of cheese fries...fatty but so good!) for dinner.

FirstWatch is a really good chain restaurant we don't have back home; offers breakfast/brunch/lunch and seems to be popular with the natives.

Are there any good Indian buffets down there? We'll be staying at Bonnet Creek, have never tried Indian food, but would like to. I'd like to have a variety to choose from though, in order to have the greatest chance of finding something we'll like. I'm not a picky eater and will try anything, but my mom will be with me and has gotten more picky as she gets older.

I stumbled across this on TripAdvisor: http://www.tripadvisor.com/Restauran...o_Florida.html

I am sure you can find more options on this website as well. Enjoy your Indian food. I am not traveling with adventurous eaters either. I feel your pain.

My own opinions:

Ale House: cheap and reasonable pub food and beer. Usually go once (sometimes more if I'm traveling alone on business).

Panera Bread: one on Vineland Ave. just south of the outlet mall at the south end of i-drive, and the other in the parking lot of the Florida Mall. REAL BAGUETTES alone make it worth the trip. Love the french onion soup and salads too. None where we live.

Macaroni Grill. We don't have one at home, the whole family loves it.

Also, there's a tint sushi joint up i-drive near the Holiday Inn or Wet'n'Wild in a strip mall. Great place, wished I could remember the name. I think it's right next to either Ponderosa or Sizzler or something like that.

Great thread! Subscribing! Anyone know of other places that offer coupons? I've already registered with Sweet Tomatoes.
We are staying off site this go-round, and not having the dining plan is stressing me out a little. 5 years ago when we stayed off site, we had a bad experience when it came to Orlando restaurants. First one was a terrible all you can eat buffet place, (not sure the name) and another was an IHOP which served us rotten milk. It was that, in addition to, not being able to find anywhere to eat near Lake Buena Vista. One night, we drove around for an hour, with no luck. This was probably due to hot weather and cranky kids, too.
We did, however, LOVE the dining plan when we stayed at Beach Club two years ago. It was worth every penny. We are opting for saving, and spreading out a little this time, so eating off site is necessary. This thread has already helped a ton, so thanks for all the responses!

We love Seasons, but I'm sad to say it's a chain restaurant as well. We've only eaten at the one here in the Chicago suburbs.

We discovered the Wood Grill Buffet on I-Drive this year. Lots of good food, reasonably priced. Not far from the South I-drive outlet mall. we ate there 3 times.
