MommyCon :: Family Friendly Restaurants in Orlando

Family Friendly Restaurants in Orlando

One of my favorite things to do when I travel is try different foods. Orlando has so many dining options and different cuisines to try out; it has something for the entire family. There are plenty of great options near Caribe Royale Orlando. Most of them are just a short drive away so you don’t miss a thing at MommyCon Orlando.

For those that don’t want to leave the convention center, no worries there will also be concessions on site open from 9 am to 3 pm. Breakfast will be from 9 am to 11 am, offering foods such as cereal muffins, assorted yogurt, granola bars, fruits, water, Powerade, soft drinks, bottled juice, coffee, hot tea, and iced tea. Lunch will be offered from 11 am to 3 pm, offering items like chicken tenders, tater tots, check salad, deli sandwiches, veggie pita, cookies, candy bars, and chips. For those that don’t mind taking a short drive, below are some delicious nearby options.

Pal Campo Restaurant

Pal Campo Restaurant is a modern and traditional restaurant, specializing in Puerto Rican Cuisine. It is a unique dining experience displaying deeply rooted traditions from Puerto Rico offering delicious dishes like Mofongo and Chuletas Can Can.

Hurricane Grill & Wings

Hurricane Grill & Wings offers an island themed menu in a laid back tropical vibe. It serves more than 30 signature sauces and rubs. It has been named one the “10 greatest places to wing it” by USA Today. They have other varieties of foods such as tacos and burgers and a great selection of drinks.

BJ’s Restaurant & Brewhouse

This is one of my favorites because of the variety of food. I can order a pizza for the entire pizza or just get my own entrée.  They also have amazing appetizers not to miss out on and their famous Pizookie dessert. With this Florida heat, you may even enjoy their award-winning handcrafted beer.

Mellow Mushroom

For pizza lovers, here you will find an art-filled chain pizzeria that also offers craft beer, calzones & creative stone-baked pizzas. You will enjoy this eclectic, art filled, and family-friendly environment.


Benihana is a Sushi & Japanese Steakhouse.  They prepare your meal right in front of you so you can enjoy intricate knife work, theatrics, and fire across the table top.  Benihana not only offers a delicious meal but a great fun night out for anyone, especially for kids. You can’t go wrong with delicious food and a unique dining experience.

Around Mommycon Orlando, you also have fast food chains such as Mcdonalds, Wendys, and my favorite Chick-fil-A. It all depends if you’re looking for something quick or want the sit down experience. After the sessions are over and you have more time on your hands, I suggest the Dr Phillips area for a greater variety of restaurants with a relaxed and even romantic atmosphere.  International drive and Disney Springs also offer unique dining experiences for the whole family for the evening hours. Comment below of any dining experiences you look forward to trying out in Orlando or if you’ve visited what have been some of your favorites?
