ZAGAT SURVEYS

Vito’s Chop House
International Drive – Orlando, FL

An old-timer “in the heart of tourist land” near the convention center, this chophouse “blows away the other big-name” beef purveyors by “doing the classics well”, offering “succulent steaks” and seafood plus an “amazingly long”, “nicely priced” wine list to “make any connoisseur quiver”; meat-mavens maintain that “attentive”, “professional” service and a “cozy” setting are just two more reasons that “Vito’s has it all.”
 

MoonFish Restaurant
Sand Lake Road – Orlando, FL

Regulars rave about this “lively” Dr. Phillips surf ‘n’ turfer that turns out “excellent sushi” (“anything raw that’s legal!”), plus “mammoth portions” of “awesome” seafood and steaks; respondents report that “entertaining”, “inviting décor” – including “restrooms that defy description” – helps make it “a great place to bring out-of-towners.”


Charley’s Aged Steaks & Market Fresh Fish
Cypress Street – Tampa, FL

"An old-school throwback to traditional steakhouses", this Tampa old-timer (part of a mini-chain) pleases patrons with "smoky" steaks, seafood and poultry "cooked to perfection" over a wood fire; if a few suggest that the "club" look is "dated", most contend it's "comfortable without being stuffy", and besides, it's "run like a well-oiled machine" – "the staff always remembers who you are and what you drink"...


Charley’s Steak House
International Drive – Orlando, FL

“You won’t get a bum steer” at this trio of homegrown Orlando-area steakhouses, where a “wood-fire grill produces” “fabulous meat” that’s “cooked to perfection” (you can “cut it with a fork”); carnivores claim “this is a reason for coming to Central Florida”, with a “large wine list” and “huge servings” to make it “well worth the price”...


Charley’s Steak House & Seafood Grille
Parkway Blvd – Celebration, FL

"Come hungry" to this chophouse chainlet where "cooked-to-perfection" cuts are "as tender as butter" and served in portions so "huge" you'll leave "feeling stuffed"; "the staff delivers even when stretched thin", and "classy", white-tablecloth surrounds boost the "special-occasion" appeal.
