        I ate at BB King's once (for my bachelor party, actually), and it wasn't bad. Overpriced, sure, but decent enough Southern-style food and barbecue. It would be the most convenient option for you, and you might be pleasantly surprised.

            Capitol Grille is too rich for my blood, and I was repulsed once when I saw a bunch of people dancing on top of the tables at Taverna Opa (where people eat their food). It seemed more like a rowdy "meat market" for wannabe players and hard-drinking cougars than a decent Greek restaurant.

          i love maggiano's at pointe orlando - great italian food with portions big enough to share, so you won't go broke. awesome dessert! fun atmosphere inside and great service too. just went last week, and it didn't disappoint

            Except the heavy pasta with red sauce choices make me VERY SLEEPY :) Might not be the best choice for a night out with a concert, but I agree the food isn't bad

            If you're not looking for something "vibrant", I think the Funky Monkey is the clear choice from a food perspective, but it is pretty mellow. Opa is fun, food is pretty standard but not bad and if you have the right attitude and friends then it can be a blast. Capital Grille are great steaks but very expensive and really just another version of Ruth Chris', Morton's. Fleming's etc. Same with Oceanaire but for seafood. Another option is if you don't mind a short walk (like 10 minutes) is to go to Cafe Tu Tu Tango - we always have fun there and the recent menu additions are quite tasty

              Ended up having yummy crab and mozzarella bites at Miller's. Great..i mean really good octopus (think char grilled with olive oil,lemon and salt) at Taverna Opa and decent late night naked wings at BB's. The pulpo was f...ing great.
