Hi Guys. I just found this thread. I'm curious how close any of these restaurants are to the Poly? Orlando Ale? Sweet Tomatoes? Ponderosa Breakfast? If they aren't close....what restaurants are near the poly? Thanks.

Our favorite is Steak and Shake- can't beat the price or the food, breakfast and burgers. Yummy drinks too!

Sweet Tomatoes is near Universal Studios and Wet n Wild. It's located at the corner of International Drive and Kirkman Road.

I'm adding my 2 cents to this thread.

Giordanos is my favorite. I loved it when I lived outside Chicago years back and am glad to go there when I visit Orlando. It's must for me.

Perkins for breakfast or for the pies!!

Rainforest Cafe.. expensive but I love the atmosphere.

Out of the chains I like going to the Olive Garden.

I usually stay on I-Drive and I really like Bennigans (Jamesons glaze... mmm yummy!). Must have something to do with the Irish in me. I also like the Ponderosa for breakfast - stock up in the morning to prepare for the long day ahead!

For a good Breakfast Buffet, my family liked the Golden Corral. It isn't far from Cypress Pointe, and their selection & food quality, I thought was very good.
They have a coupon, available in the booklets which seem to be everywhere, that makes it a great deal.

Thumbs up

I can't believe that no one has listed Charley's (at least I didn't see it). One of the great steak houses in America (and I've eaten in lot's of them over the years). NEVER miss going here at LEAST once during a visit to Disney. It's not cheap, but not the Four Season's either.

Steaks are great, cooked the way you want, great garlic bread, super service, and even though I can't eat them anymore, TERRIFIC desserts.

They come around with raw cuts of beef (wrapped in plastic) to explain the meat, etc.. Just a nice place for dinner.

It's on the end of the shopping center corner of 192 and Palm Pkwy, across from Celebration.

If you go, Enjoy. Can't wait for May 27....

Bob

Smile Hemmingways, one to the best offsite.

Hemmingways, located in the Grand Hyatt, is a great restaurant.Also, the pool area is lovely to walk through after you dine.

The Ponderosa, Panera Bread and IHOP are all good favourites of ours.

Sweet Tomatoes was wonderful! We went back in 2002 when we stayed at HRH. We plan on making a stop there before we end our vacation. I think it was called the Tomato patch then, I may be wrong, but it was near Wet'n Wild. Great selections for even the pickiest eater!
