Outdoor Dining

Fall 20/Winter 21

It’s the most wonderful time of year to enjoy the outdoor weather and sites in Florida.

If you want to enjoy good eats outside, you gotta check out the outdoor dining options at Universal CityWalk. They’ve got it all: Mexican street fare at Antojitos Authentic Mexican Food. Homemade pasta and piping hot pizza at Vivo Italian Kitchen. Sushi, burgers and one-of-a-kind Burgushi® at The Cowfish®. An all-day brunch and epic milkshakes at The Toothsome Chocolate Emporium & Savory Feast Kitchen. Burgers, nachos and over 100 bottles and drafts to choose from at NBC Sports Grill & Brew. You won’t leave hungry.

The cooling temperatures that come with fall make this the ideal season to enjoy dining al fresco at Disney Springs®. Outdoor dining abounds, and there’s an option to suit every taste and budget. Looking for a recommendation? Consider some standouts.

New at Disney Springs West Side, City Works Eatery & Pour House, with plenty of tables outside, is the perfect spot to indulge in one of 90+ draft beers alongside classic American fare with unexpected twists. Try the smoked chicken wings – you won’t be disappointed! Chef Art Smith’s Homecomin’ Florida Kitchen by James Beard Award winning celebrity chef Art Smith, beloved for Art’s Famous Fried Chicken, Shrimp & Grits and moonshine-based cocktails, now features an expanded covered patio that offers casual outdoor dining with easy access to water views. At Frontera Cocina, gorgeous views of the springs pair perfectly with the Mexican cuisine that has made Chef Rick Bayless a seven-time James Beard Award winner. Start with the Red Sangria and an order of Bacon Guacamole, then choose between Carne Asada, Shrimp Mojo de Ajo and Carnitas, among other fan-favorites.

Looking for a fun outdoor dining experience? Look no further than Rikki Tiki Tavern! Situated at the world-renowned Westgate Cocoa Beach Pier, the oceanfront escape is the best little hideaway this side of the island. Take the load off and indulge in fresh, delectable seafood like the Lobster Roll or Peel & Eat Shrimp and refreshing island drinks such as Watermelon Mint Lemonade or a Rum Flight. In this oasis you’ll be reminiscing about smooth tropical vibes for days.
