4 great restaurants to enjoy at Disney Springs Orlando
Disney Springs is a great spot to visit when in Orlando, whether you plan to hit the theme parks or not. There are so many options on where to eat, it can be a little overwhelming and although much of it has to do with how much you are willing to spend and your overall mood, I do think some restaurants are better than others overall.
Here are 4 restaurants to enjoy at Disney Springs Orlando:
1. Wine Bar George - My favorite place to eat at Disney Springs. Restaurateur, George Miliotes, is a Master Sommelier and this whole concept is his creation from the ground up. He isn’t afraid to roll up his sleeves and I regularly see him serving on my visits there. Recently I visited to try the brunch menu and it was phenomenal, the attention to detail is there and the cocktails were also incredible and high-quality mixology drinks.
Of course, the wine is the star and you’ll find wines here that you cannot get anywhere else thanks to George’s relationships with vineyards around the planet. Prices are also flexible depending on your budget, you can stick to affordable wines or go up to extremely rare wines on small pours. I love the second floor balcony as well and the staff simply could not be friendlier. I highly recommend visiting here on any trip to Disney Springs or just Orlando. 1610 East Buena Vista Drive, Lake Buena Vista, FL 32830. (407) 490-1800
2. Morimoto Asia - Owned by the Food Network star, Morimoto Asia has excellent Asian food inspired by the journey of Iron Chef Morimoto. He is most famous for his Peking Duck and it is quite delicious, but many other items on the menu also deserve a look. The restaurant is beautiful inside, especially the second floor and the bar downstairs as well. The cocktail menu has lots of Japanese inspiration, including Calpico and green tea on different visits. You’ll spend a pretty penny here, but it will most definitely be worth it if you come with a plan to indulge. 1600 East Buena Vista Drive, Lake Buena Vista, FL 32830. (407) 939-6686
3. Raglan Road Irish Pub - I would usually be one of the last people I know to recommend Irish pubs as they are usually not my scene, but I love Raglan Road at Disney Springs. They have great music both inside and outside on the patio, it was one of my last happy experiences before the pandemic hit. It’s all about the drinks here and they have rare stouts and other beers from breweries both locally and abroad that you simply cannot find anywhere else.
I love their beer flights and it is just a really happy experience that I recommend to anyone. It gets busy so try to make reservations. Entrees will be about $20-30 per person. 1640 Buena Vista Drive, Orlando, FL 32830. (407) 938-0300
4. The Polite Pig - If you’re looking for a quick solution at Disney Springs, but willing to spend a little, I recommend The Polite Pig for delicious barbeque. I recommend getting a bunch of sides to share with friends and then they have plenty of sandwich options as well, my favorite is the brisket. 1536 Buena Vista Drive, Orlando, FL 32830. (407) 938-7444
