Affordably Orlando Dining Guide.
Our Personal Choices & Recommendations!

grandma-cinderellas-castle-restaurant-magic-kingdom-orlandoTo start our personal dining guide, what we recommend on this page are our own views and thoughts. If you would like to follow this guide during your stay in Orlando please feel free.

We choose to dine out around Orlando at the following restaurants, on the budgets we have set out before arriving in Central Florida. But, as you will find out below, Orlando dining is expanding at a fast rate, huge choices are available for all the family.

Being a family group of seven to eight people, and with an assortment of ages and tastes, the following Orlando dining guide is our own personal choice from restaurants and buffets to a touch of fine dining.

If you and your family or travel companions are food connoisseurs, and a particular style of dining is to your liking, we recommend this useful website, which we think promotes that personal Orlando dining guide you require to suit you.

If you have read previous pages on our website, you will have noticed that we always stay in Orlando villas when we come to Florida.

So, you might start thinking 'why go out to eat when you have your own facilities at the villa'...easy really, as much as we like the home from home touch, we are on holiday and its nice to wonder off some where for lunch or an evening meal on the odd occasion.

Our Favourites:


sizzler-orlando-logo-floridaYes, we know the buffet style menu...but I will speak for all the family here because they all read this page before it goes online...Very good value for money for the budget minded & healthy choices are available for everyone.

Select from a wide selection of food from the menu. Steaks, rice dishes, pasta dishes and other assorted meats and a huge salad bar, with kids choices to keep most young ones happy...with the under 11's eating free...Kids Eat Free Card.** PLEASE DESCRIBE THIS IMAGE **

What we like about Sizzler's as with most buffet style restaurants, you pay a set price for your meals then eat what you require, so when you leave you are 'well stuffed'...as voiced by my youngest. Waiters look after your table so remember to tip before you leave...we normally leave a $1 Dollar per family member on the table. If you want, you can pre-pay your tip when you order your food...but we like the personal touch and tip at the end.

Sizzlers are located in and around Orlando; we always use the restaurant located on the 192 between markers 5 & 6. Also, remember your discounted coupons, to save a few Dollars (Download & Print), worth adding to your Orlando dining guide.

Boston Lobster Feast & Seafood Buffet:

angels-buffet-orlando-floridaIf you love all kinds of seafood especially lobster, crab, and clams thrown in... again this is a place to add to your Orlando dining guide. Costs around $25 - $40 per person depending on ages...but like Sizzler's, you eat till your stuffed.

One drawback, it becomes very busy during peak hours! Early booking is recommended...Telephone: (407) 396-2606

Open between 4pm - 10pm Mon-Fri, 2pm - 10pm Sat-Sun - ...try to catch these times towards the end, its quieter by then...plus discounted tickets are available in coupon books all around Orlando and Kissimmee.

Two locations are available....we visit Boston Lobster along the 192 close to marker's 8 & 9 located in the Celebration area, a large car park is available in front of the building...the staff are friendly although worked off their feet and the restaurant is clean and tidy.

Steak n Shake:

steak-n-shake-logo-orlando-floridaWe have always called in to the restaurant opposite Pirates Cove mini golf venue, located along the 192 between markers 14 & 15... and for all the times we've been a nice choice of food has been available, from juicy steakburgers, salads, sandwiches and the lush milkshakes, choices for all the family.

Personally I love the soup of the day...very tasty. We would recommend you add Steak n Shake to your Orlando dining guide.

Sunkissed tip;

Steak n Shake is a handy restaurant to use before you visit the Flea market located next door. Click the link for further details on the market and directions.

Outback Steakhouse:

outback-steakhouse-logo-orlando-floridaAustralia comes to Orlando big style with this very popular outlet chain of restaurants.

If you like steaks, you will love the Outback.

Slighty more expensive but this does include waiter service. Around $160+ for seven people with drinks...well worth it though...pre book your table around 1hr before you arrive or you will not get in.

Choose from a wide selection menu, including most type of steaks...highly recommended. We visit the Outback located off the 192 at marker 4 in the Formosa Gardens Blvd area...large car parking area available.

Check this website for other locations, phone numbers, menus and opening times...Highly recommended on our Orlando dining guide!


shoneys-orlando-floridaRequire a great start to the day then pop into Shoney's.

Before you start your adventures at the theme parks or deciding to have a day away from Orlando, visit Shoney's for a full on breakfast

Many people including us, highly recommend you pop this onto your Orlando dining guide for a stopover. Keeps the stomachs full and the food prices down in the parks...You will not be disappointed!

Burger King:

If you're into the Burger outlets...out of all the popular named places we recommend Burger King. Nice juicy fresh beef burgers, healthy salads plus much more are on offer. We normally use Burger King when we arrive in Orlando for quickness and on departure day before we travel back to the airport. Loads of locations are available.
