SeaWorld Orlando's focus may be on marine life exhibits and world-class theme park rides, but the park also offers a variety of dining options that aim to satisfy the appetites of hungry guests. As with most theme parks, fast food is prevalent, but there are also a number of higher-end options.
Since we launched our theme park guides last year, we've kept a close eye on the ratings and reviews that our readers have given to restaurants at 90+ parks all over the globe. As we're focusing on SeaWorld Orlando as our "Park of the Month" for November, and to encourage more of our readers to rate the park's offerings, here's a rundown of the top 5 restaurants at the park.
5. Terrace Garden Buffet
This all-you-can-eat buffet located in a quaint plantation terracehouse serves up unlimited pizza, pasta, rolls, desserts and a variety of drinks. It's one of the park's most relaxed eateries, and you're likely to leave stuffed to the gills.

4. Voyager's Smokehouse
Similar to the Festhaus-style food courts at many other theme parks, Voyager's Smokehouse offers barbecue-style dishes including spare ribs, smoked chicken and baby back ribs. The hearty, thick, smoky flavour will meet the expectations of most visitors.
