For lunch -- highly recommended would be the blackened mahi mahi sandwich at the Orlando Ale House. Great place for eats, beer, and sports watching. Family oriented -- more so than your typical sports bar -- with a couple of locations in Orlando.

The French Onion Soup and Conch fritters at the Ale House are also great. The Ale House on 535 is a big hangout for Disney cast members.

I'm also a big fan of Hot Dog Heaven up on Colonial Dr.

If you're going to Disney...the food is hit and miss and miss. The futuristic burger place in the Magic Kingdom (counter service) was dreadful---and that was two burgers, fries and cokes for $25!!
A brownie and coffee breakfast for two also cost us nearly $20.

Elsewhere, it's better.

The Brown Derby at MGM Studios was a nice splurge---cobb salad is their specialty.

At Epcot, we had a very good Mexican lunch (San Angel Inn) with a truly magical atmosphere. Also, the food at Restaurant Marrakesh was authentic. I opted for the five course meal, with yummy baklava to cap it!

At Universal Studios, Bob Marley's was a disappointment, Emeril's was a splurge anniversary lunch that cost us $125 with tip (though the gumbo and bread pudding were worth it). The Cheeseburger at Jimmy Buffett's Margaritaville wasn't "the best I ever had", but worthwhile and the hurricanes at Pat O'Brien's just didn't compete with those they serve in New Orleans.

I guess you really don't schedule an Orlando "park trip" for the food, but hey---that's what I always go for!
