The Tasting Room at the Chef's Table is the small plate concept brought to you by the same chefs that create food at the Chef's Table at the Edgewater. Since opening, we have won Best Appetizers in Orlando by the readers of Orlando Magazine. Our full bar offers some of the best creative, craft cocktails in Orlando. And we also serve craft beers and award winning wines.
Lovely cosy small restaurant in an old style hotel. Staff is very helpful and knowledgeable about the dishes being served. My partner had a problem with the duck dish as he felt it was too salty - apparently this is due to it being cooked in brine. They quickly offered to change the dish and brought it to him in a very short while. They also offered us a discount for the inconvenience.
Food and service was great and will definitely return! Also, it is not expensive compared to similar restaurants in this area.

Here at Ellie Lou's, we serve fresh, chopped to order BBQ and our sides are made from scratch.
Good selection of food with different meal types. Sandwiches and plates with sides. We had chicken, ribs and Turkey. Everyone enjoyed their meal. Another fabulous thing was the root beer that is caffeine free and uses pure cane sugar. Yum!

Harry's & Larry's is no frills, but just plain good food! Their platters and sandwiches are great. On this visit, I got a pulled pork sandwich with french fries, served on garlic toast and the combo includes a second side or a drink. There are several bbq sauces on the table to choose from - the sweet and the mustard are my two favorites, although there was also a hot sauce and original to choose from. Service is quick, food is good, and price is reasonable! Definitely one of Plant Street's staples that everyone should visit.

For happy hour, lunch, dinner and good drinks and wine bar with handmade beers, the Rusteak Restaurant and Wine Bar is a good option in Ocoee, near Colonial Dr and Maguire Rd. The menu is very good with appetizers and small plates. The price is high but the staff is awesome.

4 Rivers is a family-owned smokehouse specializing in 30-day aged brisket, homemade southern sides and fresh bakery items.
Drove to Winter Garden to have lunch with a client. We had the Black tip sandwiches. I added green beans and the barbecue beans. The sandwich was quite good. The barbecue beans were the best I have eaten ever. This place is busy so get there early. Service was good as well. Nothing fancy. Just great food.

The food was excellent. The layout of the business is the issue. No clear instructions on placing orders. The inside is cramped and all it takes is about five people to jam up the entrance. A varied menu, pleasant staff and the food was really well prepared. The inside is cramped. Outside is nice but not much of a view as it's right on the highway. Overall it is clean.

Real New Orleans style Home Cookin', featuring Crawfish Etouffee, Jambalaya, Gumbo,Red Beans and Rice and wide selections of Po-boys and full bar. We expanded 3000 sqft in November 2014 . Now we have a full bar with 1 large 102 inch TV and 20 50inch TV's to make the perfect sports hangout for everyone. We do still have our original family dining side and that will not change.
The only item on the menu that is even remotely close to okay are the wings. The decorations are cute, but nothing impressive. I have friends who have a more Mardi Gras themed living room than this establishment. The staff is unresponsive and inattentive, and when you're finally able to get the attention of one, it feels like you're speaking to a brick wall; they are simply unfriendly and not at all inviting or welcoming as staff should be. I've seen more smiles from high school cashiers. Furthermore, I don't understand what all the hubbub is about Desiree, as she's no better than the rest of the wait staff. It appears she's only kind to those she likes and if she doesn't know or like you, you'll receive service as nasty as her attitude. She was our bartender at the Windermere location and the time it took to receive our drinks was atrociously slow for an absurdly low volume day. I think the best thing I got from this place is the laughs from the responses of the owners Morgan and Misti. They don't appreciate honest reviews and would rather childishly mock you instead of acting professionally and respectfully to try and encourage your return. It's more on the lines of, "We don't want your business anyway, why did you even bother coming." Because we are fair to give you a chance? And just because we don't like it, that means we're unworthy of your business? I'm sorry, but please avoid this establishment at all costs.

First Watch specializes in delicious creations freshly-prepared to order. Their fresh, award-winning Breakfast, Brunch and Lunch dishes are made using only the best ingredients without the use of heat lamps or deep fryers. The best part is their creative menu features traditional favorites like omelets, pancakes, salads and sandwiches.
So delicious! First Watch has many fabulous choices to select! Wonderful fresh juice and plentiful portions. Love the Eggs Benedict and Seasonal Bacon and Grits!

My first restaurant that I planned on going to ended up being closed on Mondays. After looking on-line for another restaurant nearby I found Thai Blossom which offered gluten-free options. The restaurant is located in the Winter Garden Historic District near many other restaurants, stores and museums. Parking shouldn't be an issue, as there were spots along the street as well as around the corner in public lots.
I was greeted immediately and shown to a table. They have a lunch menu as well as the standard one that you can order from as well. The lunch options came with a soup, salad and a main dish (not sure about a drink). Given my limitations I didn't pay too much attention to the lunch menu itself. After informing the waitress that I needed something gluten-free, she mentioned that they had a gluten-free menu and came back with one. As one would expect, it was a lot more limited than the regular menu. However there were still plenty of options available.
I ordered the pineapple fried rice. It was prepared in such a way that it was safe for me to eat, as the server even mentioned that they used "skinny" soy sauce. The portion was enough for two meals and I was not able to finish it all. You definitely do not need to order any appetizers! The food was very good and a reason to come back again.
The restaurant's decor was simple but elegant. From the outside you don't get much of a first impression, however once inside you will find nice touches and comfortable seating. The restaurant shares bathrooms with the attached hotel next door. The hotel's lobby was rustic and the bathroom was unique in of itself. Another thing to consider is that you have to spend at least $9.5 (roughly) to use a credit card.
If you are in the Winter Garden area and looking for a place to eat and like Thai food, I would highly recommend Thai Blossom.

Moon Cricket Grill is one of the best hidden gems in Winter Garden. The food selection isn't grand, but the quality is very good. What they do boost, is a very wide variety of beers from all over the world. Their selection rivals that of "World of Beer".
The two times that I've been here, they service has been impeccable. And the wait time for the food is fairly good, even on a busy weekend.
They do have indoor and outdoor seating, as well as a bar area with multiple televisions.
Highly recommend this place for casual dining, sports watching, and after work happy hour times.
