Boxi Park

Restaurants with Outdoor Dining

We’re starting our list of restaurants with outdoor dining in Orlando off strong with an option that’s all about enjoying the Orlando—well technically Lake Nona—weather. Savor big flavors at this outdoor food hall.

This spot is so cute; each counter service resto has their own painted and decorated shipping container, but don’t let the metal exteriors confuse you. These chefs are the real deal—we’re talking world class chefs with Michelin-rated experience. There are tons of different options and on the weekends you can enjoy live music while you snack!

Wine Bar George

If you’re a fan of people watching, this is one of the restaurants with outdoor dining that makes for a  great hangout spot for you! Wine Bar George is located right in the heart of Disney Springs and has an amazing view of the water, the live music, and of course of everyone walking around.

This is one of our fave spots to grab a glass of wine and a cheeseboard. What’s more relaxing than that? With over 150 wines by the bottle, glass, and ounce this is the perfect spot for vino lovers. And the food is a 10/10. Order the burrata, you’ll thanks us later.

The Wellborn

restaurants with outdoor dining

Tucked away in a garden is a small bites restaurant that you won’t want to miss. The Wellborn is serving up delicious tapas and hand crafted cocktails in this historic and intimate setting. It’s an amazing escape from the hustle and bustle of Orlando. Their menu changes seasonally, but maintains the idea of a taste of vacation in Orlando so think exotic, tropical flavors.

Our current must orders are the lamb ribs with a guava bbq sauce and the grilled shrimp and of course you have to pair your meal with one of their craft cocktails. If you’re a gin lover, go for the best friends, it’s absolutely killer! It’s definitely one of out top go-to restaurants with outdoor dining in Orlando!

Hungry Pants

restaurants with outdoor dining

Calling all plant-based foodies! We’ve got an outdoor space for you! Hungry Pants is one of our favorite restaurants with outdoor dining in Orlando. This locally owned and operated restaurant for those who are a little plant-curious. It isn’t strictly plant based so this is a great spot for lunch when your group is a mix of diets. Their patio is a great spot for soaking up some sun while enjoying some bold flavors.

Our go to item is the CLT: curry lime tempeh, arugula, avocado, and cilantro aioli on grilled wheat bread. And don’t forget to order the cauli tots for the perfect nibble to kick off your meal.

The Whole Enchilada

Snack on chips and queso while you sip a marg on the rooftop of this Tex-Mex spot in Winter Garden. This rooftop is a great place for grabbing a meal (or a drink) with friends, closing out our list of top restaurants with outdoor dining in Orlando.

We’re a big fan of the burritos here, they’re so delicious and filling. We’re currently loving the Fah-Hee-Tah Burrita smothered. It combines everything you love about fajitas like the roasted peppers and onions and smothers it in queso. What’s not to love about that!
