In a city like Orlando, families on vacation have myriad options. Many are in town to visit the theme parks and while those looking to uber-capitalize on the Disney, SeaWorld or Universal experience do much of their dining in amid the attractions, many more want to branch out. For one thing, off-site dining can be far friendlier to the wallet. And it's nice to venture out into other areas of the city, even the more tourist-driven among them. It offers a break from the parks' frenetic pace. Familiar faces are always nice when you're in a strange place. You'll find a few on this list. Kobe Japanese Steakhouse, for example, serves up teppanyaki fun, its hibachi chefs with proffer surprisingly hearty fare along with some mealtime entertainment. Same goes for King's Bowl, although you'll supply your own fun as you strike-and-spare your way to 10-frame supremacy with a side of surprisingly sophisticated menu options for a bowling alley. Pointe Orlando has many options. One is Marlow's Tavern, where leveled-up pub food merges with copious kid selections and craft cocktails for moms, dads and the like. But Orlando, while chain laden, has far more than chicken nuggets and fries up its sleeve. You'll find more exotic selections in places like the Russian/Eastern Euro-infused Ararat and Mediterranean/Middle Eastern venue of Maraya at Sabrina's.
