Hi Matt and Welcome to the Dis! We really enjoy your Sweet Tomatoes and try to get there every trip! As a matter of fact, we're going to try and get there next Saturday after we fly in! I'll be sure to ask for you.

Hi Matt! Welcome to the Dis

We (family of 4) love Sweet Tomatoes (and wish we had one closer to our home). You guys do a great job. My favorite item is the specialty salad with the mixed greens, pears, nuts and bleu cheese. It's delicious. We'll probably be down at Universal for a weekend in Feb. or March and will be sure to stop by and say hello.

I'm curious. How did you hear about the DisBoards? Did people come into the restaurant and say they had heard about Sweet Tomatoes here on the boards?

Curious thing....

Actually, at 3:30am it's amazing what a google search will turn up. The salad you speak of is Bartlett Pear which is on the bar right now. I will try to post some menu highlights for when you are coming and be sure to say hello when you come in.

My votes go for Pacino's on 192. Good food, nice atmosphere, good price. Also, The Ale House on 535. Good food for a great price. I also loved sweet tomatoes. I'm getting hungary already :D

we've had to many good meals to list but only 1 bad at the ponderosa and that was more our fault for going in to close to closing time in low season.
The buffet was nearly all gone and had been sitting out to long.
Being Brits we didn't complain, just won't go back.

DH and I ate at this seafood-ish restaurant right off of 535/Vineland last time we were down there...it was right by the Bahamas Breeze. I don't know the name of it, but it was good. In fact I think that's why DH wants to go to DW again Anyone know the name of this place? TIA

Laundry's Seafood

I believe you are talking about Laundry's Seafood. A bit pricey especially if you are not able to eat very much, like myself but I have heard good reports also. Glad you had a good time.

Thanks...I thought it started with an L, but for the life of me I couldn't remember! I thought it was a bit pricey too for an offsite restaurant, but it was pretty good

It's actually called Landry's Seafood, and it is pretty good.

My all time favorite restaurant in Orlando is Amuras! It is in Dr. Phillips near Seasons 52. They have great sushi and a really nice atmosphere! They also have really reasonable prices for lunch. Ale House on 535 is great, one order of Chicken Nachos could feed a family of 5! I am a big fan of Sweet Tomatoes too, I used to live close to there and I would say I ate there at least twice a week! Now I am craving chili and cornbread!! YUMMY!!

AOL has an interesting "city guide" listing for the Orlando area, if you are interested in non-chain restarants, or even more info about some of the places that were listed by others.

We went to Sweet Tomatoes and the Pac Man Cafe'. Both were really good, especially Sweet Tomatoes. I didn't like that Super PacMan wasn't working, but other than that it was fine.

Hubby and I have been to Sweet Tomatoes twice and plan to go back again!
