Universal Orlando Resort


The food is surprisingly good, and surprisingly affordable. Be careful about ordering a Hurricane, the restaurant’s signature drink. Not only is it deceptively potent, but you are automatically charged for the souvenir glass, and if you don’t want it, you must turn it in at the bar for a refund.

Setting and Atmosphere

A fairly faithful rendition of the original Pat O’Brien’s in New Orleans, from the red brick facade right down to the fire-and-water fountain in the courtyard. The outdoor dining area is the most pleasant place to eat. Inside areas feature a noisy “locals” bar, and a dueling piano bar featuring some of Orlando's most talented musicians from 5 p.m. to 2 a.m. nightly; a cover charge is levied after 9 p.m., since it’s mostly a music venue that also serves food.

House Specialties

Shrimp gumbo; jambalaya; muffuletta; red beans and rice.
