    Definitely a place I would love to go to. I saw some of the photos yesterday and it looked very focused on steak. However, I didn't know about the fire pits for guests to use to roast marsh mellows. That sounds amazing!

    Looking forward to trying it - wondering if there will be a lot of outdoor seating as well

    As the OP mentioned it will be interesting how the theme works for the 7 or 8 hotter months

    It does say there will be outdoor seating as well. There certainly seems to be the space for it considering the location. Seems like a great place to sit outside and people watch, right in the middle of the City Walk atmosphere!

    Could be interesting. I rarely order steak however as I can grill a better steak than most restaurants.

    You could always have an app, or two instead? More than likely that's what I'll do, since the focus is on steak, I'd imagine it's going to be a pricey place. So, I'd either do something causal, or if I do order a steak, probably do it for a special occasion.

    If we can handle the snow topped roofs of Hogsmeade or a blizzard themed water park year round in Florida, I'm sure we can accept a lake lodge restaurant. ;)

    I'm thinking more about the fireplaces and such - not so much the decor

    Has anyone ever eaten at a restaurant in Florida? They're air conditioned. Why is everyone worried about a wood fire in the restaurant? Ohana has one.:confused3

    I hear you - I think it's just more something to talk about well we wait for more info.
    Seem like Fire will be a big part of this - hence the name - and there will be more than just a wood fire. I've seen reference to fire pits and fireplaces as well as the stove.
    So seems like a lot of fire and on those night where it gets cool - it will be appreciated.
    I'm sure they have it all figured out - the people designing this know it is in Florida and what the temperatures are like.

    Anyway - the photo's of the food look great - will be interesting to see what the real thing looks like.

    Did you read any of the articles? Some of them gave the impression that there would be fire pits outdoors, since there will be an abundance of patio seating.
