Ole Red Orlando 

To say we are excited about the opening of Old Red Orlando in ICON Park this April would be an understatement! Blake Shelton’s Ole Red restaurant will bring with it delicious southern style cuisine, the signature Champagne of Fried Chicken, specialty cocktails, an extensive beer and wine selection and Orlando-only dishes among many other offerings. But that’s not all! The destination is also going to provide concert-quality lighting, up-to-date-acoustics and seating for about 500 people; offering a new live music experience on I-Drive that will draw many!

Walk-On’s I-Drive Bistreaux & Bar at I-Shops 

Also set to open is a new restaurant that will stand two stories high, offering guests a sports bar experience paired with tasty Louisiana-inspired cuisine! Walk-On’s operates with a mission of delivering a memorable game day experience with a taste of Louisiana created by an All-American team, and they’ve stayed true to this mission in their operations at over 100 locations across 15 different states!
 
Walk-On’s has officially become the go-to place for a good time and great food, and is known as the perfect sports bar to grab a bite or a beer, bring the family out for a good time, or catch a game with friends! Keep an eye out for this new spot, planned to open during the Spring/Summer of 2020.
 
 

Cheddar’s Scratch Kitchen 

Established in 1979, their name was proposed by a 5th grader when founders asked for restaurant name suggestions. They pride themselves on being a scratch kitchen, meaning that they make all of their food in-house and from fresh ingredients. And because this is how they operate, they are able to bring loads of delicious, made-from scratch food to your table for prices that you won’t believe!
 
Set to open in Spring/Summer of 2020, check out their menu now so you can decide what to order during your first visit, because with a menu boasting so many tasty options… it is going to take a while to decide on just one thing. Seriously, check out their menu!
 
 

The Hampton Social at Pointe Orlando 

The next new restaurant coming to I-Drive is The Hampton Social and they’ll be calling home one of your favorite I-Drive dining and entertainment complexes, Pointe Orlando!
 
The Hampton Social is set to open in May 2020, and it is a build-out of former Tommy Bahama’s Eatery, specializing in seafood options, pizza, and something we all love to indulge in here on I-Drive, brunch!
 
Hosting frequent events of live acoustic music, in a modern, clean and eclectic atmosphere, this restaurant may prove to be your new favorite go-to spot!
