Universal CityWalk Restaurants and Dining

Dining | Shopping | Entertainment | Photos

While CityWalk is known for its clubs and party atmosphere, the dining opportunities here should not be overlooked. Whether it's a fresh pizza made in front of your eyes at Red Oven Pizza Bakery, a Cheeseburger in Paradise at Jimmy Buffett's Margaritaville, or a culinary tour de force at Emeril's, there's something here for every palate and budget.

If you're looking to catch a movie after your meal, the Movie & Meal Deal might be right up your alley. For only $21.95, you can order a select entrée including coffee, tea or soft drink at select CityWalk restaurants and be treated to a movie afterwards. If you're not interested in going to the movies, maybe the Meal & Mini-Golf Deal is a better alternative for only $23.95. The price of miniature golf at Hollywood Drive-In Golf is $13.99 plus tax for 18 holes making your meal less than $10 dollars.


 


Antojitos Authentic Mexican Food
Hours: 5pm - 12pm
Full Service


Universal wanted to replicate the authentic Mexican food that you would expect from a street cart, cantina or market in Mexico City and the end result is Antojitos Authentic Mexican Food. All items on the menu are prepared fresh daily using the finest ingredients. Two menus are available – classic Mexican food can be found in the downstairs main dining room, while more unique culinary creations are featured in the upstairs Antojitos Up. Two full service bars are available, one upstairs and one down, in case table seating is completely full. Bar seating also provides an opportunity to watch Antojitos’ bartenders mix up some authentic Mexican margaritas and other drinks using the best tequilas.

 


Red Oven Pizza Bakery

Hours: 11am - 2am
Quick Service



Red Oven Pizza Bakery is artisan-made pizza in a casual, yet fast-paced environment making it a mixture of sit-down and quick service. Guests can choose from a menu of 10 different oven-baked pizzas, and if you can't find exactly what you're looking for, you can create your own! Pizzas are made fresh to order in the giant red oven that's the centerpiece of the restaurant. Red oven isn’t an analogy, as the oven can get as hot as 1400 degrees to make the perfect crust. However, your pie will be cooked at 900-degrees to give it that perfect, crispy crust without burning it. Whole pizzas range from $12 to $14, salads from $11 to $13 and desserts, soda, beer and wine are also available. Take a seat outside while your pizza is being prepared and it will be served hot and fresh at your table.

Hard Rock Cafe Hours: 11am – 12am
Full Service

The most impressive aspect of Hard Rock Cafe Orlando is that it is the world’s largest Hard Rock Café. Like all Hard Rock Cafe’s, the menu features American cuisine, such as burgers, chicken tenders, ribs and sandwiches. Music videos are playing constantly no matter where you sit and if that isn’t distracting enough then there is plenty of rock memorabilia to do so. Look closely at the ceiling and you may even see the most bizarre mural or dead rock stars as angels. For a special experience – ask the host or hostess if it is possible to get a free tour.

Bob Marley - A Tribute to Freedom
Hours: Sunday – Thursday 3pm – 10pm, Friday & Saturday 3pm – 11pm
Full Service
Movie and Meal Deal Location

Bob Marley’s isn’t one of the most popular dining locations at Universal CityWalk, but it is definitely features one of the most creative menus showcasing Jamaican-influenced appetizers, entrees and desserts. Most dishes on the menu are very reasonably priced, making it one of the best value restaurants at CityWalk, but some of the unique menu items like the Oxtail Stew may scare off pickier eaters. Caribbean Fridays offers some of the best prices for appetizers and drinks, but be aware – Sunday nights after 9pm is Ladies Night and the restaurant can get hectic and noisy if you are having a later meal.

Pat O'Briens
Hours: 4pm – 2am
Full Service
Movie and Meal Deal Location

The easiest way to describe Pat O’Brien’s is Mardi Gras in New Orleans all year round. Pat O’Brien’s is an authentic reproduction of the location in New Orleans and features the famous Hurricane drink. The food is exactly what one would expect – New Orleans Cajun and Creole cooking, but there is a Lil’ Leprechaun Menu for children. One of the biggest draws of Pat O’Brien’s is the dueling pianos, but a fair warning - the musicians sing all types of songs including those with potentially offensive language. During Universal Mardi Gras, admission to Pat O’Brien’s is free on event nights.
