Each week, we ask you, our readers, to vote for your favorite food, ride, land, or activities at theme parks around the world. This week, we’re at the Universal Orlando Resort, looking for your Top 5 table service (sit down) restaurants in a Universal Orlando Resort Hotel.
For the purpose of this poll, a restaurant that is considered ‘table service’ utilizes a server to bring out your meal and drinks to your table, as well as buffet-style sit-down dining. These are the official winners of the resorts at Universal Orlando:
