So, if you’re looking to switch it up and try something different on your trip to the area, here are ten guest-favorite restaurants within walking distance of Ramada Gateway!
There’s nothing better than a hot, delicious meal... except for when you don’t have to go far to get it! The Smokehouse Grill, located right here in our hotel, serves an “all you can eat” breakfast buffet in the morning and Florida-style barbecue for dinner. The ribs and steaks are rubbed with bold spices and smoked slowly over hickory wood for four hours to give them that juicy, tender flavor you crave. We also serve pasta, seafood, salad and more! The best part? We offer a children’s menu, and kids under 9 eat free with each paying adult!
Just 0.4 miles from our hotel, this Pan-Asian eatery is unlike any other Asian fusion restaurant in Kissimmee. In addition to their hibachi and sushi bar, they cook up unique udon dishes also known as Japanese noodles. Udon noodles can be served with seafood or vegetable tempura, or stir-fried with beef or chicken. Did we mention the Cajun spices that make it even more flavorful?
Hungry for some seafood on your tropical vacation in Florida? Bonefish Grill has a wide selection of fresh seafood and awesome specials (including happy hour) almost every night! Their specials on Tuesdays and Wednesdays are hard to beat! With a brunch, lunch, dinner and bar menu, there’s something for everyone to try, too! Is one family member not a fan of seafood? Bonefish Grill also serves burgers, chicken, steak and pork chops.
If you find yourself craving pizza while on your stay with us, Gill’s New York Style Pizza is a family-owned pizzeria just around the corner! Gill’s serves New York style pizza, calzones, wings and various desserts. You can choose to dine-in or take it back to your room. They’re also known in the Kissimmee area for their friendly staff.
A vacation wouldn’t be complete without trying food you don’t normally eat. Nipa Hut is located right on West Irlo Bronson Memorial Highway (the same road we’re on!), and specializes in native Filipino dishes! The restaurant is constructed of bamboo and a roof made of nipa, or anahaw leaves, which allows a cool, fresh breeze into the restaurant. Nipa Hut opens at 11:00 a.m. and serves breakfast, lunch and dinner, so you can stop in at the most convenient time for you and your family during your vacation.
If you’re in the mood for an extra kick of spices in your meal, Clay Oven Indian Cuisine is known for their expertise in combining all of the right spices to reflect a real authentic cuisine, and is just down the road from us!

Chuy’s is a popular Tex-Mex chain restaurant that hand rolls their tortillas from fresh dough made every morning and uses fresh green chiles from New Mexico! Although they refer to their food as “Tex-Mex,” their menu is made up of flavors, recipes and ingredients from all over, including Texas, New Mexico and Mexican border towns! Our guests love visiting Chuy’s while staying at Ramada Gateway because of the fun, casual atmosphere.
If you’re in the mood for family-style Italian food while in town, Giordano’s is right around the corner and is located only in Kissimmee and Orlando! Ramada guests always rave about their fresh, homemade sauce and deep dish pizza. If you’re not in the mood for pizza, they also serve classic Italian pasta dishes, salads and sandwiches.
