Restaurants near Marriott's Grande Vista and ESPN

We are headed to ESPN World of sports this weekend for a wrestling tournament. Looking for restaurant suggestions. I am not a fan of chains....I can visit those at home. John is a big steak guy and i love fish! He also really likes wings, pizza and italian. We will have car. Thanks!

In the complex is the ESPN Sports Grill that has what you'd expect from a sports bar, burgers - wings - beer.

Unfortunately where the ESPN field house is, is near Hwy 192 that is like the chain restaurant capital of Orange County.

How far are you willing to drive to avoid chains and what is your price range? Where are you staying?

Oh duh.... Marriott's Grande Vista... unfortunately also along International Drive where the Grande Vista is are more chain restaurants. The non-chain spots tend to be closer to the city of Orlando, Winter Park and places like that.

Up in Dr Phillips are some good restaurants, but also on the expensive side, so budget would still help.

Antonio's in Celebration has truly wonderful Italian food. Very nice, and has alfresco dining as well with a nice view of the lake. Celebration is a hop from Disney's Wide World of Sports!

Thank you! Dinner like to stay under $40 range per person. Our biggest issue is timing due to the wrestling tournament

Orlando is the chain capital of the world.

Non-chains is limiting, but in Celebration good spots are Columbia, Celebration Town Tavern and the Market Street Cafe.

The best I can do for you close to the Grande Vista is point you to the "good" chains, since there are not a lot of independent restaurants in that area.

Look at the Pointe Orlando, just north.
