Dining Out Around Lake Eola | Part 2

Relax Grill and Bar at Lake Eola

Relax Grill and Bar at Lake Eola is an open air dining spot on the north side of Lake Eola,  right by the swan boats. With a great view of the lake,  it is a nice little place to chill on a weekend or for happy hour while watching sports (they have multiple TV screens).  The prices  are fair,  particularly the drink specials,  so get the drunken Mickey (limit 2 per customer), which hits the spot. We also recommend the mediterranean platter, the house burger,  the grouper fish dinner, the shrimp stir fry or the shrimp po boy with piping hot onion rings!

Pizza at Lake Eola

Pizza at Lake Eola features the Chipotle-style assembly line where you choose your own toppings and watch your personal pizza pie masterpiece being made right before your eyes.  Choose from cool toppings like shrimp, arugula, sriracha, truffle oil (and all the regular pizza toppings) and many more before they fast-fire it thru the oven while you pay. Making your own pizza is so fun, and the decor is modern and casual. We highly suggest checking it out for a quick lunch or anytime you feel like the comfortable carbohydrates of pizza.

Eola Wine Company Downtown

Eola Wine Company Downtown is a great place to sip a wine (or beer) and people-watch near Lake Eola.  Come with some friends and share the popular mimosa flight, the bruschetta with multiple spreads, and maybe some tacos or a flatbread. If dairy is your thing their baked brie, their goat cheese and their cheesecake are amazing. The wine list is really nice, but the friendly staff is what is most inviting! It is very tranquil and great to relax. Try a glass of the Kiona Vineyards 2012 Cab/Merlot or maybe a Moscato from Oregon if you like the sweeter white wines.  Their Sauvignon Blanc Flight and Red-White Flight are seen a many tables.

Lake Eola Park is popular outdoor destination in Downtown Orlando, and if you are one of the many people taking advantage of the beautiful surroundings to walk, or to have  lunch, brunch, or dinner at restaurants near Lake Eola, we hope our seven super selections give you food for thought.
