Orlando Ale House close to a decade ago while on a business trip. Located in the shadow of Disney, this is a good place to get some good food and watch your favorite sporting event. That first trip was my first time eating lobster out of the shell, and to this day the menu continues to have local favorites, although it has migrated to more bar fare.
The Ale House is a restaurant that is divided into halves by the central bar. On one side pool tables, dart boards, and video games are surrounded by high tables with bar stools. But the other half are private booths with a good view of the televisions.
The beer flows freely, and stays open late. But the best part is this family restaurant gives mom and dad to escape the Magic Kingdom. However the only time Iowa fans should be visiting the Orlando Ale House is on vacation, not for a potential bowl trip.
