Tony Roma’s is known for their ribs, but they also do traditional dishes well. Case in point is the limited-time New Classics menu that serves up favorite dishes with a bit of a twist.
We were invited to sample the New Classics, and found them all incredibly tasty.
Paddlefish, a seafood-centric restaurant, is now open in The Landing at Disney Springs for your dining pleasure, and it’s definitely a don’t-miss place to eat.
Formerly known as Fulton’s Crab House, the restaurant has been completely revamped inside and out, taking on a contemporary interpretation of an elegant steamboat. The new design includes a variety of comfortable seating, large windows to enjoy the view of Disney Springs, and three floors for guests to enjoy, including a new rooftop deck on the third floor.
When Fulton’s Crab House reopens this fall at Disney Springs, after an extensive remodel, it will also bear a new name: Paddlefish.
The restaurant closed earlier this month for a renovation that will change both the exterior and interior from bow to stem.
Fulton’s Crab House is a favorite among diners headed to Disney Springs for dinner, but did you know they also have a wonderful lunch menu?
Carol and I were recently invited to try out Fulton’s for lunch, and we showed up as they were opening, at 11:30am. We were shown to a table on the second floor with a wonderful view of the lake and The Landing. We were also the only ones in there at first.

Earlier this week, we were invited to join other area bloggers to witness the grand opening ribbon cutting ceremony of the new Harry’s Poolside Bar & Grill at the Rosen Centre.
The event started with a soiree in the newly re-christened Sam and Bubbe’s, named after founder Harris Rosen’s maternal grandparents, Sam and Rose “Bubbe” Rosenhaus. In addition to drinks, this lounge located near the lobby also offers light bites.
Reflecting the family’s Lower Eastside of New York City upbringing, the menu has deli-style noshes like mini-Corned Beef or Pastrami sandwiches, Latkes, and Potato Pierogis.
We then moved out to the pool area, and after a few introductions, Harris Rosen himself took over and regaled us all with stories of his upbringing, including those of Sam and Bubbe, along with his paternal grandfather Harry Rosenofsky. Harry was another immigrant who settled in NYC’s Lower Eastside, and he is the namesake of the new poolside venue.
Earlier this week, we were invited to join several other local bloggers to try out the new incarnation of Tony Roma’s, the new Tony Roma’s Fire Grill & Lounge on Lee Vista by the Orlando Airport.
Not only does it have a new, warmer, decor, but the menu is new, as well, emphasizing comfort foods and dishes grilled over a wood fire grill.
We were prepared to sample the delicious new offerings created by Bob Gallagher, Vice President of Culinary and Purchasing, but we had no idea at how amazing this new menu is.
The evening started with a few drinks while we were waiting for everyone to show up. We tried a Wood Aged Margarita and a Swindler, which was a very tasty mix of apple pie moonshine, Fireball whiskey, and housemade sour, with a cinnamon stick for garnish. It tasted like the filling of an apple pie – so yummy!
