This restaurant which is located on the 192 has been recommended to us by one of our friends who works at WDW.
Has anyone tried it yet?...apparently it has only been open a short while.
Looks like you may have to try it our for us Terry

MY TRIP REPORT INDEX
We've not been to that one, Slowhand but have been to another one (different state). As I recall it was pretty good! (It was years ago though, now).
I remember sharing a dinner with Herself and we couldn't finish!
Thanks for that Tink.Originally Posted by Tink, post: 235368
It used to be a regular thing for us to go to Key W. Kools for dinner on the first night of our vacations....this place was recommended to me by Ricardo and we always had a great meal and we got to know the servers there very well.
Sadly on our last visit the place had been remodelled and had turned into a more down market sports type diner [in line with their other restaurant in Orlando] with tv screens all around the place and it seemed very noisy.
Ricky suggested we try the Colorado [giving me the name of his friend who is a server there ], so we`ll give it a go on our forthcoming trip and if it`s up to scratch I`ll make sure to get a menu for the site.
I don`t think that the Colorado will be in the same league as Charley`s Keith, but it`s always good to have somewhere near to where our villa is located, especially for our first night`s dinner.Originally Posted by Keith, post: 235384
You MUST give the Old Hickory a try....I`m sure that you won`t be disappointed, just remember though that you would need to give then a call and make a reservation...unlike the Gaylord`s buffet at Villa de Florez where you would be more than likely to be able to just walk in.
Herself and I were just talking about Key W Cool's, Slowhand. We know that you and Mrs. Slowhand liked going there on your first night in town and wondered if the remodel/remaking of the place had changed that. Apparently it has, eh?
We`re in no rush to go back there Tink as it has really changed since the refurbishment.Originally Posted by Tink, post: 235395
Don`t get me wrong, the food is just as good but it`s the atmoshphere which has changed.
I used to love being there when someone was celebrating their birthday. One of the servers had an amazing opera voice and always received rapturous applause.
We only had dinner there a couple of times, and the last time it wasn't so great. We had a very severe server (think she may have just defected from Siberia) who was completely put out at our not wanting any bread, potato, starch. It was funny truly, but we don't go out to dinner to be made uncomfortable so that was our last time there.
I know you both enjoyed it though, and it's too bad they changed it to a sports bar. That's the last thing the Orlando area needs, another junky place to eat.
