Best Restaurants Near I-Drive and the Convention Center

You've been in meetings. All. Day. Long. It's time to get out for some fresh air and a taste of the local scene. Lucky for the many business travelers to Orlando, the convention center district, known as I-Drive, is bustling with plenty of food and beverage options along the one-mile stretch up to Sand Lake Road. Whether it's cutting into a great steak or relaxing on an outdoor patio with a cold drink in hand, I-Drive has the venue for you. Several convention hotels like the Rosen, the Hyatt and the Hilton boast fabulous four-star restaurants while the nearby Pointe Orlando and I-Drive 360 complexes provide plenty of dining and entertainment in one spot. So take a much-needed break, refuel and refresh, so you can get back to your important meetings again tomorrow. 

Options below are listed by proximity to the Orange County Convention Center to one mile north along International Drive. Sidewalks and lighted crosswalks make walking easy, however taxis, pedi-cabs and Ubers are readily available along with the I-Ride Trolley for $2.
