Florida has thousands of great restaurants to choose from, but sometimes you need something extra special. If you’re looking for a unique way to celebrate a special occasion or have a fun night out, check out these unique themed restaurants.
1. Be Our Guest, Walt Disney World, Orlando
Whether you're a beauty or you have the appetite of a beast, this upscale restaurant in the Magic Kingdom is sure to impress you. The magnificent rooms are decorated to resemble Beast's enchanted castle, and the menu is full of hearty French and American cuisine. Bon Appetit!
2. Mai-Kai Restaurant, Fort Lauderdale
This local landmark is one of the few tiki-themed restaurants of 1950s fame still in operation today. It's kitschy to the core, with tropical drinks, entertainment, and lots of fun.
3. Medieval Times, Kissimmee
Think of it as extreme dinner theater. Jousting and sword fights accompanied by spectacular modern lighting and production. Pretty good food with no silverware provided (to keep things authentic). Maybe it's a little corny, but it's also irresistibly fun.
4. Clark's Fish Camp, Jacksonville
Clark's houses a huge menagerie of stuffed animals, but not just those native to Florida. You'll find lions, tigers and bears (oh my!), and even an exhibit with turtles, fish and a 5-foot live alligator.
5. The Wreck Bar, Fort Lauderdale
This unique bar was designed to look like a sunken ship. Weekend mermaid shows performed in the hotel pool complete the illusion and draw tons of visitors.
6. The Bubble Room, Captiva Island
One theme just wasn't enough for this colorful restaurant. The Bubble Room features antiques, stars of the silver screen, Christmas decorations, and moving trains on all three (yes, three!) floors.
7. Mythos, Islands of Adventure, Orlando
The atmosphere is incredible in this Ancient Greek-themed restaurant. You'll feel like you're dining inside a scenic cavern, complete with waterfalls and towering formations.
8. Sci-Fi Dine-In Theater, Walt Disney World, Orlando
If you love all things retro and long to experience a drive-in movie (without the heat of a Florida summer), check out this kitschy classic located in Disney's Hollywood Studios.
9. Ciro's Speakeasy & Supper Club, Tampa
It can be hard to find a themed restaurant that feels suitable for a date night without the kids, but Ciro's is just that. Guests must call ahead to get the day's password before stepping into this vintage hideaway.
10. Seminole Gulf Railroad, Fort Myers
Diners on this train enjoy a delicious five-course dinner and an exciting show, all during a three and a half hour train ride.
