Just like shopping, when it comes to eating in Florida you are spoilt for choice. Everything from fast food to expensive restaurants are available to you. Whichever you choose you will usually find that the place is very clean, the service polite and friendly and the food of good quality.
Fast food restaurants such as McDonalds, Burger King, Wendy's etc. are plentiful. But for a more substantial menu is a cosier setting, Savannah Steak House, Penny's, Perkins, Red Lobster, Olive Garden, Darryl's and Bennigans are all very popular, and offer a wide range of good food. There are many places to eat in the main attractions such as Disney World. Again these range from the fast food to better class restaurants and are all very good, but a little pricey!
