Seafood Restaurants in Orlando & Kissimmee
Orlando Visitor Guide
Orlando Seafood Restaurants
If you live in the USA you will already be familiar with most of the names of these businesses and how the system works, be patient with us as we try to explain them all to our international visitors.
As we indicated in our introduction to this section, categorizing these restaurants is not going to be easy. So please bear with us...
Though there are many Steak and Seafood restaurants throughout the area, in this section we will attempt just to focus on those restaurants that specialize in the Seafood side. This restaurant type is more likely to be privately owned than part of a national chain. The quality of service is often very high...
As you travel around the Orlando area you will probably see the roving landmark of the Boston Lobster Feasts - 'Larry' the Lobster, a 12-foot caricature who sits atop a Volkswagen Beetle and roams the tourist corridors. One of the few restaurants that specialize in 'Maine Lobsters', the Boston Lobster Feast is actually a wholesaler to many of the area restaurants.
Naturally there are other restaurants including Red Lobster - always
an American favorite. For something a little a more local there's
Shells Seafood Restaurants, which operates a chain of restaurants
from Daytona Beach all the way to both the West
Nearby you can also find Calico Jack's Oyster Bar and Seafood Restaurant, which is located in the La Ramada Plaza.
Sadly now closed was a hidden treasure in Kissimmee and housed in an unassuming location, Pounders Fresh Fish and Lobster House. Just off of West Vine Street on Central Avenue - Over 10,000 lobsters could be viewed here, which all added to the dining experience.
A little further east, and just down the road in the quaint community of St. Cloud you can find some additional favourites. Among these is a local gem called Evelyn's New England Seafood Restaurant, which features a décor to match their name not to mention great food at prices you can afford.
A personal favourite of our American editor, this place is so good - we will give it a recommendation. Evelyn's can be found as you enter St. Cloud. Look for the Checkers restaurant on the left, and the restaurant will be found approximately ˝ block off the highway, on the opposite side.
For another local landmark, there's also the Catfish Place Seafood Restaurant, which specializes in fresh caught catfish from Lake Okeechobee - Florida's largest lake (and the third largest in the USA). In addition to this, you'll also find local game specialties that include frogs legs, gator, turtle and fried lobster. All of which are part of their southern-style selections.
We must mention the Sea Queen Restaurant as you near the outskirts of St Cloud, as this restaurant has long been another area favourite of the local residents.
