Entertaining Theme Restaurants You’ve Got to Eat At in Orlando!


Orlando might just be the most entertaining city in the entire country. It has the most theme parks and attractions by far, but the fun doesn’t stop there. Even eating in Orlando can be an entertaining experience. Here are 5 of the best theme restaurants that you’ve got to eat at in Orlando!

Hoop-Dee-Doo Musical Revue

Located at Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground, you’ll find this Western-themed place for dinner and a show. It’s an all-you-can-eat feast that features family-style food that even your pickiest kids will love. Crispy fried chicken, barbecue ribs, corn on the cob and other finger-licking favorites will make the whole family happy as you enjoy the show. Grownups can enjoy cocktails while the kids play games like horseshoes or even enjoy the playground before the show begins so you won’t have to hear any whining.

Medieval Times Dinner & Tournament

It was perhaps one of the original dinner-and-a-show restaurants in the Orlando area, with a medieval meal and a joust to entertain you. In true medieval form, there are no utensils. You must eat with your hands, which adds to the fun. This place has been around for over 30 years in Kissimmee, which is just outside of Orlando. While it now has other locations, this is the most famed of all the Medieval Times restaurants and is a hit with adults and children alike.

Sleuths Mystery Dinner Show

Want to go out without the kids? This mystery-fueled dinner show is more fun for adults, or even older kids. While little ones are welcome (there’s a kids’ menu for children ages 3 to 11), they likely won’t appreciate the show. Food is delicious though and includes beer, wine and soft drinks in the price. You can also opt to pay a little extra to get a juicy prime rib which is never a bad idea. The show lasts for about 2.5 hours and includes a one-hour long pre-show, dinner, and dessert. Plus, during holidays various show themes are offered, making it a new experience every time.

Pirate's Dinner Adventure

Ahoy there, mateys! This action-filled dinner show dazzles with swordplay, acrobatics and plenty of pyrotechnics. The cast interacts with diners randomly, though if you choose a VIP package, you’ll get guaranteed interaction, which is always good to make a birthday or special occasion even more memorable. You dine in a great big ship within a giant lagoon, making the entire experience a thrilling and realistic eating adventure. Kids can choose from the kids’ menu or eat the same food as adults, which is a nice option to have especially with bigger kids.

T-Rex Restaurant

In Disney Springs, you’ll travel back to the land before time truly began. Dinosaur-loving kids and adults will love this place, filled with prehistoric décor and animatronic dinosaurs. The menu features meaty meals like ribs and mammoth-sized burgers, plus indulgent desserts that carry out the restaurant’s theme. There are places to play and dig
