Dining at Universal Orlando Resort

Go straight to the menus


While the main draw at Universal Orlando Resort is usually the parks, I think the resorts are the hidden gems. In these gems are even more hidden facets – the restaurants. Some of the best food on property is quieted away in the resort hotels. From a hand tossed pizza at Sal’s to the gourmet meals prepared at Emeril’s Tchoup Chop, there is always something to please every palate, craving and budget. While the theme park food is good (for theme park food) venture over to one of the resort hotels for a break and to really enjoy a meal. You do not have to be staying at one of the resorts in order to eat there! Just hop a water-taxi or take a slow leisurely walk to some really great food. Reservations are not always needed, but if you know ahead of time where you want to eat give them a call and set up a time, especially during busy seasons.
