Part Two - Restaurants as the 192 approaches Highway 27
In Part One of this guide I listed restaurants as you leave the Parks starting at Angels Seafood Bar and ending with the Clay Oven Indian restaurant. This guide details the other restaurants as the 192 leads directly onto Highway 27.
In the last few years Cici’s Pizza restaurant has opened at the foot of the Miniature golf arcade. This is a great place if you want to feed children quite cheaply. I am not a big fan of pizza but the girls love it.
Red Lobster which as the name suggest specialise in fish, is just as you approach Formosa Gardens We have not eaten at this one but have had good meals at a branch in Naples.
At Formosa Gardens the first restaurant is Outback Steak House where they do good steaks. There is plenty of outdoor seating as in busy holiday periods the wait is usually very long for a table.
TGI Fridays was one of the first restaurants to open at this end of the 192 they also have a nice undercover eating area. The bar can get quite busy during Happy Hour and there is usually a man making balloon animals for the children in the restaurant. You can call ahead here to put your name on the waiting list for a table.
Carrabas is a lovely Italian restaurant great food and atmospheres but again can be really busy. If there are only a few adults you can usually eat at the bar without having to wait too long.
A new development Rolling Oaks Commons opened about eighteen months ago. The Olive Garden here is similar to Carrabas but slightly cheaper, they do fantastic bread sticks. It is very popular with families.
In our opinion Longhorn Steak House does the best steaks, good service here as well as a great atmosphere. It can be quite noisy early in the evening as families head home from the Parks but you can have a lovely relaxing meal later on.
Bahama Breeze which serves Caribbean food is due to open at Rolling Oaks in spring 2011, this will be good for visitors to this area as the one off the I4 by Premium Outlets is always very busy and difficult to get a table.
At the end of 2010 Millers Ale House opened in the Orange Lake complex. Huge car park lots of TV screens, food and drinks offer every day, it is proving to be very popular.
Houlihans these days provides all you can eat breakfasts and it the first restaurant of this type you will come to if you are approaching the parks from highway 27. It has a good lunch and evening a la carte menu. There is a lovely outdoor cocktail bar area.
Finally as you are about to join the 27 you will find Dennys on your right in the Summer Bay Complex. I believe this restaurant has 24 hour opening and you can get a breakfast anytime of the day. Good service and menu gets very busy at weekends with families.
I hope you enjoy some of the restaurants on this end of the 192.
