Emeril's Tchoup Chop (pronounced chop-chop) is the hottest table in Orlando, and Lagasse's second location at Universal Studios. The name offers a hint of New Orleans' famous Tchoupitoulas Street, home to Emeril's flagship restaurant, and the bold culinary term "chop". Located at Loews Royal Pacific Resort at Universal Orlando, Emeril's Tchoup Chop offers a dining experience unlike any other created by the famous master chef. In both atmosphere and menu, Emeril's Tchoup Chop offers diners a unique and exotic journey through the Pacific Seas with a delicious experience of Asian and Polynesian influences complemented by his signature bold flavors - a perfect complement for the Royal Pacific Resort. Although walk-ins can be accommodated, reservations are highly recommended. Our dress policy is casual with no tank tops for men. Ryan Vargas, Chef de Cuisine, and Andy Vaughn, General Manager, are dedicated to providing you with that memorable dining experience.

"Maybe we built it up too much in our minds but the food was just OK - problem being, it was hit or miss. Drinks were fantastic, the surroundings are beautiful... the food just lacked some punch - no big flavors. The bulgogi was basically little meat cubes on a stick with little flavor. The special raw scallops were terrific, so again, do your best to pick the 'hits' and not the misses."

The Christner family invites you to join them at Orlando's favorite for prime steak and lobster. <br><br> Opened in 1993, Christner's is truly a family business "we have very little turnover because our employees are part of the family"!!! Our customers are locals...business people... travelers...vacationers and sports stars... including many celebrities. Everyone agrees...outstanding menu...professional staff and America's Most Award Winning Steakhouse!! The Christners maintain an informal flavor of warm, hands-on, personal hospitality. As Russ said, "Hey, we're just a humble little steakhouse" Enter a guest, leave a friend. <br><br> The Bread: Baked fresh daily and served piping hot to your table. Rip it. Break it. Just don't cut it with a knife. The Beef: Prime, aged corn-fed straight from the Midwest never frozen and cut to order right off the loin. The Lobster: Cold Water Australian Tails. The Wine Room: 5500 bottles of selected wines to choose from.

"There's an old-school-rat-pack feel here and we loved it. (There's plenty of sleek and ultra-modern places you can go, nice to be somewhere with style and charm.) The service was outstanding- Kevin who apparently has been there quite sometime-was perfect and fits right in. Food was fantastic. Whether it's a birthday, business dinner, or you're just craving a great steak you can't go wrong here."

Situated a block south of Savannah's Forsyth Park, Local 11ten creates a nightly dining experience complete with intelligent cuisine, a welcoming personality and modern design. The restored 1950's era downtown bank houses the casual, elegant restaurant devoted to popular southern flavors using local, seasonal ingredients. With a contemporary atmosphere, foodies, tourists and locals alike gather to enjoy Executive Chef Brandy Williamson's unique spin on familiar southern flavors. Williamson leads the talented kitchen utilizing the area's natural resources and regional ingredients with many of the dishes incorporating day boat seafood caught from Georgia's coast and vegetables and herbs from Savannah's local farmers. A DiRōNA rated restaurant, Local 11ten offers guests a contemporary restaurant with elegant simplicity. Additionally, PERCH, Savannah's ultimate rooftop destination is nestled in the trees over the restaurant, adding an additional must-have experience while in Savannah.

"We rarely miss this place when we get to Savannah. Amazing food, would like a slightly broader wine selection but it is still pretty good. The service is fine, nothing that stood out."

"The food was pretty good. Little surprised at the portion size of the potatoes but we'll get over it. The location and atmosphere also great. Service was something you'd find at a quickie breakfast spot. No chit chat. No specials. No set up for a great experience. That was a shame because that would've made the whole experience rated higher."

"We've gone to Blue Point for years and it continues to never disappoint. Servers are great. Food is great. We ended up having dinner and went back our second night to have a drink and snack at the bar."
