Orlando's Top Sports Bars

Where to Watch the Big Game

By

Wondering where to go in the Orlando area to see the Magic play? How about the Florida Gators? Here is a listing of some of Orlando's top sports bars.

1. Miller's Ale House

With 11 locations in the Central Florida area, Miller's Ale House is one of the most popular sports bars around. Prices for Beer Buckets & Vodka drink specials can't be beat. Wednesday night is Ladies Night. Most locations have indoor and outdoor seating with a separate smoking section. Some of my favorites: Tossed Salad, simple and under $4 - one of the best deals in town. Ossobuco, this unexpected entree of tender marinated pork shank can be compared to what you will find in some of Orlando's top Italian restaurants - at a fraction of the cost. Late Night Dining, kitchen closes at 1:30am.

2. Gator's Dockside

Eight Orlando area locations including Kissimmee and Clermont. Open for lunch and dinner, Gator's Dockside is the place to meet with friends on game day to show your team spirit. Bar and table seating with state of the art TV screens to view you favorite sports event. Full menu, full bar. Try the namesake appetizer; Gator Tail, a marinated, hand-battered, bite size pieces of gator tail - let me know how it is.

3. Froggers

Meet friends, watch the game on their big screen TV's at their 5 locations in the Central Florida area. Great 'bar food' keeps the regulars coming back. Family friendly atmosphere. Daily food and drink specials and plenty of big screens to watch the game.
