Anything in Orlando worth going out of my way for?

So, I was in Orlando last week.

I went to (sometimes due to circumstance):

4 Rivers (really good, but not exceptional)
Anthony's stone-fired pizza (mediocre at best - honestly)
Ravenous pig (quite good)
Charley's steakhouse (smoke was over-whelming)

Anyway - I didn't really get that satisfaction of feeling that the drive to any of them was worthwhile (no matter short or long). The only place that came close was 4Rivers. In any case - are there any places in Orlando that are absolutely worth the drive?

  1. Norman's at the Ritz.
    Millers Ale House..casual, cheap and really good.
    Ravenous Pig

    1. Compared to Toronto, probably not. You have already done Ravenous Pig.

        1. Victoria and Albert's on Disney property.
          Amura Sushi
          Ceviche Tapas Bar and Restaurant Church Street Station
          Norman's at the Ritz (I agree with Beach Chick.)
          Bull and Bear Steakhouse Waldorf Astoria in Orlando (but I will admit, this is a New York City offshoot.)
          Johnny's Fillin' Station Great hamburgers
          Le Coq au Vin

          Are you talking about flying from Toronto to go to a restaurant in Orlando? "Out of your way" from where? Victoria and Albert's and Norman's are the only ones that might merit a plane flight from Toronto (and are priced accordingly), but the others I have listed are all darn good.
