Seafood, Pastas, and Salads
Universal Studios Florida's San Francisco inspired seafood restaurant, where the emphasis is on deep-fried favorites and daily fresh fish specials. Originally an attempt at in-park fine-dining, with whole live lobsters formerly on the menu, Lombard’s Seafood Grille is now more casually focused. Unfortunately, so is the kitchen, but as one of only two full-service restaurants inside USF it's your best choice for a quiet meal off your feet.
On nights when Universal's Cinematic Spectacular is being shown (see page xref), prix fix dinner packages are available at Lombard's for $44.99 adults, $12.99 kids (tax and gratuity included, park admission required). Diners choose an appetizer and entree from a limited menu (no crab or lobster, but you can get mahi mahi), and later attend a dessert reception on the deck behind the restaurant with an up-close view of the Cinematic Spectacular – sometimes drenchingly so, depending on which way the wind blows). Dinner seating start at 4 p.m., and the dessert party starts 1 hour prior to showtime. After you purchase your dinner package online at universalorlando.com, you must call 407-224-7554 at least 24 hours before arrival to confirm your reservation.
With two floors of seating, it's generally easy to get a table, even during the busier times. Note that Lombard's is currently the only table service restaurant inside Universal's parks that doesn't accept reservations though opentable.com.

Setting and Atmosphere
Situated on the park’s main lagoon, Lombard’s looks like a converted wharfside warehouse. The centerpiece of the brick-walled room is a huge salt-water aquarium with bubble-glass windows, giving a distraction for the younger set. A fish-sculpture fountain greets guests, and there are private dining rooms upstairs with balconies overlooking the park.
Stuffed portobello mushrooms; crab cake sandwich; shrimp mac and cheese; lobster roll; fried shrimp; beef medallions; fresh fish selections.
