Fodor's Expert Review A Land Remembered

$$$$ South Orlando Dinner Fodor's Choice

The name of this award-winning steak house comes from the iconic novel about Florida by Patrick D. Smith. Notable menu choices include the 20-ounce chateaubriand for two carved tableside and the best seller, a 20-ounce Harris Ranch Prime bone-in rib eye, perhaps with a shared appetizer of collard greens braised in Gator Drool beer, or mac and cheese with big lobster chunks. Starters can be elegant (steak tartare) or Floridian (Cajun-spiced frog legs with mango-rum glaze). The Cataplana broiled seafood sampler of sea bass, shrimp, scallops, clams and Maine lobster tail is a fish lovers' delight.
