Where to Eat at the Orlando International Airport

If you’ll be traveling through Orlando International Airport, there are a LOT of things to keep in mind.

Inside Terminal C

The new Terminal C is open with a variety of new restaurants, stores, and features. We’ve also shared our top tips for flying through the airport, advice to make your next experience here LESS stressful, and information bout how to get FREE puppy snuggles (when available) while there (it’s a real thing). But what about the FOOD? Where can (and where should) you eat while at the airport? We’ve got a full list here!

First, we’ll tackle some top spots to eat, but if you’re looking for a FULL list of everywhere to eat in the airport, you can click here (or scroll below).

Top Spots

Snacks & Sweets

Auntie Anne’s

Looking for some deliciously soft pretzels or pretzel nuggets (along with other snacks)? Auntie Anne’s is the place to go. It might not be shaped like a Mickey, but it could be a great way to satisfy that need for a pretzel even after you’ve left (or before you’ve arrived at) the Most Magical Place on Earth.

  • Gates 100-129
  • Gates 70-99
  • Terminals A & B – Food Court
  • Terminal C – Palm Court


Speaking of sweets, if you REALLY want to pile on the icing, head to Cinnabon and pick up a cinnamon roll (or two, or three, or six — who’s counting?!).



  • Terminals A & B – Food Court


City Pub

City Pub is a sports bar within the airport that is themed to Orlando City SC — the soccer team for the Orlando area. While there, you’ll find game day-inspired cuisine, a full-service restaurant and bar, and large TVs so you can watch your favorite games while waiting for your flight.

One of our team members has been here and shared that they had pretty good drinks at this spot. If you’re a sports fan, this might be a great place to sit down and relax for a little bit as you munch on some food and enjoy a game.

  • Terminals A & B – West Hall


Looking for more of a traditional meal? There are LOTS of options. Here are some of the top picks.


If you’ve ever wanted to pair your airport experience with some steak, then Outback Steakhouse is a place you might want to check out.

One of our team members shared that they had a fairly good meal here, but be warned — it is located over near gates 70-99 so if you won’t be by that area at all then it might not be worth the trek.



  • Gates 70-99
  • There is also an Outback Outpost for Gates 70-99 (Take-Away)

FarmAir Restaurant/Bar (and Market/To Go)

FarmAir Restaurant/Bar serves up “farm to terminal” cuisine, while FarmAir Market/To Go has grab-and-go items.

One of our team members shared that they ate there and enjoyed the experience because of the mix of the restaurant location plus the to-go snacks. They were able to split an appetizer (pizza!) and a drink with their partner, while the little ones enjoyed a few bags of snacks. Sounds like a win, win!



  • FarmAir Restaurant/Bar — Gates 100-109; Also Gates 120-129
  • FarmAir Market/To Go — Gates 100-109; Also Gates 120-129

Sunshine Diner (Coming soon)

Though it’s still marked as “coming soon” on the Orlando International Airport website, we had to mention Sunshine Diner on this list! This spot will be a Southern-Floridian restaurant & bar brought to you by the one and only Chef Art Smith (who you’ll recognize from Chef Art Smith’s Homecomin’ in Disney Springs)!

The spot is intended to be unique and part of Chef Art Smith’s “dream to revitalize the American diner.” But this will be a “modern-day diner” that’ll have a “full bar, fresh fruit and key lime pie” among other dishes.

There will be some healthier options and even plant-based dishes too. We’ll keep an eye out for more details about this spot!


  • (Terminal C) Gates 230-239

Wine Bar George

Also at Terminal C is Wine Bar George — yes, as in an airport location from the same folks behind the beloved Wine Bar George in Disney Springs! We’ve called Disney Springs’ Wine Bar George the “one Disney World restaurant that’s practically perfect according to just about everyone,” so it’s no wonder why this airport spot makes our top list of restaurants.

This spot has 75 wines available by the glass and ounce, as well as small plates, cheese, charcuterie, and entrees! One review of this spot on Tripadvisor notes that the food here was delicious and that the restaurant is “not to be missed.”

  • Terminal C – Palm Court

Cask & Larder

There are quite a few Cask & Larder spots within the Orlando International Airport, but one is the “main restaurant.” For those who are unfamiliar with them, these spots come from the folks who created The Polite Pig in Disney Springs.

The main Cask & Larder restaurant in the airport (Gates 100-129) is described as a “southern comfort eatery and brewhouse.” It comes from James Beard Award-nominated chefs and has some beautiful lighting and finishes.

More spots from Cask & Larder are coming soon, including a bar in Terminal C and a spot called “Cask & Larder Provisions” with grab-and-go items in Terminal C as well.

Given how tasty many of the items from The Polite Pig are, we’d say these are some spots worth checking out!

  • Cask & Larder Market — Gates 100-129

Fast Food

And finally, if all you need is a quick bite, these are some popular choices.


Qdoba is a Mexican grill that one of our team members really enjoys and finds to be BETTER than Chipotle. Another team member 100% agreed with that assessment. So if you’re a Chipotle fan, it might be time to try something new and see if it can really beat Chipotle flavors!

The menu at the airport includes burritos, bowls, quesadillas, and more.



  • Gates 30-59, Food Court


It really needs no explanation, but sometimes you can’t beat a good McDonald’s meal just before a flight. Grab some fries, a soda, and nuggets, and you could very well be one happy traveler.



  • Terminals A & B – Food Court
  • Gates 100-129

Shake Shack

And finally, if you’re in the mood for a burger, fries, and a shake, Shake Shack is calling your name. A burger, some ShackSauce, crinkle-cut fries, and frozen custard — how can your travel day go wrong?! (Don’t answer that 😂 )
