    Are you looking for a fancy place? I'm trying to figure out what you mean by nice. Chilis is fine and we go here at home but I wouldn't call it nice. So I am wondering about your definition? Never been to Tony Roma's. Olive Garden is fine. They have an awesome chicken scampi dish that I always get when we go there.

    We liked Bahama Breeze, not posh just middle of the road price wise. Food & service were good. Cocktails to die for too :p

    The following are all lovely places to eat and certainly not too expensive :-

    Bahama Breeze
    Café Tu Tu Tango
    Olive Garden
    Kobé
    Red Lobster
    Capital Grille
    Tommy Bahama
    Tony Roma's
    UNO Chicago
    Sweet Tomatoes

    And there are some absolutely WONDERFUL restaurants not very far away on Sand Lake Road (west) - some of these are undoubtedly the best restaurants in Orlando -

    Seasons 52 (my favourite)
    The Melting Pot
    Ruth's Chris Steakhouse (quite expensive this one)
    Roy's
    Amura
    Bonefish Grill
    Moon Fish

    Texas de Brazil is a churrascaria (Brazilian barbecue with meat as the main feature) at the "end" of I Drive (near the outlet malls). If you can find a good coupon, it's a great place to dine. About $45 per person otherwise.

    There is an Ethiopian restaurant on I Drive now too. It's quite good. Not as wonderful as NY or DC, but better than what was available in Orlando prior... (nothing!).

    We had a nasty, disgusting meal in Aussie Steak House once. Never gave them a second chance. So bad we sent the food back and left.

    The Rosen Hotels on I Drive have a good variety of nice restaurants ranging from full service to buffet, to cafes.

    We personally avoid Sizzler, Ponderosa, and the Golden Corral in that area. Main reason? They are filthy. :(

    There is a new Whole Foods Market at the corner of Sand Lake and Turkey Lake (not far from I Drive at all) where you can get a very wide selection of nicely prepared foods to go. Soups, salads, ethnic foods, desserts... they have several serve yourself "buffet" style boards. They have an incredible selection of cheese too, and a nice deli. It's really a good place for visitors to check out, especially if they want something either very basic, or a little outside the norm. :yes:
