Nice Restaurants on International Drive
May 22, 2015
If you want to enjoy a nice dinner while in Orlando, we have a few suggestions for you. Nice doesn’t necessarily mean highly expensive, but these will have a higher price point than your usual chain restaurant. Many people don’t mind splurging a little while on vacation, so hopefully you will think these are worth the price! We also took distance in consideration in case you don’t feel like driving and just want to take a walk to and from dinner to enjoy the touristic feel of I-Drive! Our hotel, staySkySuites I-Drive is located around one mile from all of these restaurants. Here are our picks:
Kobe’s Japanese Steakhouse: This is a restaurant that offers a Teppanyaki dining experience, which the food you order is cooked in an iron griddle table right in front of you. The chef is skilled with the tools and usually very entertaining, so the experience itself is worth checking out. But once you try the food, you will see exactly why we included this restaurant in this blog post. The food is absolutely delicious and the portions are huge. You can choose from succulent seafood, chicken or premium steaks and all entrees accompany a salad, soup, fried rice, veggies and noodles. Prices start at around $16 per plate. (Located at 0.8 miles from staysky Suites.)
Fogo de Chão Brazilian Steakhouse: If for you the word of order is steak, then Fogo is a must-visit restaurant. This is a true Brazilian churrascaria that offers prime cuts of delicious meats and a huge buffet of various foods such as rice, beans, potatoes, cheese bread, specialty cheeses, veggies, fruits and more. Meat selection include Top Sirloin, Filet Mignon, Beef Tenderloin, Rib Eye, Bottom Sirloin, Beef Ribs and more. Prices are a bit high, so we suggest going for lunch if you want to save some money. Lunch is served from Monday to Friday until 2:30 p.m. and costs $31.95, and $35.95 on the weekends. Dinner costs $49.95 any day of the week. (Located at 1 mile from staysky Suites.)
Joe’s Crab Shack: Now, if seafood is what floats your boat, this is the place for you! They have an amazing selection of the most delicious steampots with crawfish, crabs, lobster, shrimp and a variety of fish that will leave you on cloud nine! Prices vary depending on the fish market, but you sure won’t regret trying any of their fresh dishes! (Located at 1.1 miles from staysky Suites.)
