Take the kids to eat at "Circus McGurkus" under the big tent. It's fast food but the entire area is for the visitors ten and under and they will enjoy it. Have some Moose Juice! It's cool.
When you have a day at Islands of Adventure, the little ones will enjoy it all. In the warmer months there is a little water park where they can play and get wet. Great fun for them.

Eat indoors or outside on the "Porch of Indecision" and enjoy the entertainment. At 10:00 pm there is a cover charge as the place magically becomes a night club and select bands play some great music till 2:00 am.
Always a great time. Sandwiches start at about $9.99 and dinner range from about $12 to about $29. You can be comfortable with your family or with all your rowdy pirate friends

Featuring outdoor cooking by Tony Roma's, Cecil's Texas Style BBQ, and Sonny's Real Pit BBQ, this party, which runs from February 9th through March 17th, is more like a football tailgate party at the Super Bowl or the Daytona 500. It takes advantage of our Florida weather and southern style cooking to produce a fun, family-oriented good time. While everybody up north is still walking through slush, you can enjoy a combination of good food, music, and Sea World entertainment all in the same day.
The concert series is a great lineup featuring acts like Merle Haggard, the Beach Boys, Third Eye Blind, and Florida's own Darius Rucker. Cheryl Crow performs on March 17th, so the shows are lined up. Come out and see what everyone else is enjoying.
Always a good time, Bands, Brew, and BBQ is a great time in the sun and under the lights in the heart of the capital of Southern Rock.

Owned and operated by John and Mary Nolan, Nolan's Pub is a beautiful full service bar with pub-style dining. Prices are very reasonable and the food is delicious. For example, the Guinness Stew is as good as I've ever eaten and the Shepherd's Pie is carefully prepared in a casserole dish served with marble rye.
