A Look Inside 'Bigfire' - Universal CityWalk's New Restaurant
You'll be hungry after reading this post...
'Fireside dining' is the latest concept of Universal Orlando Resort's newest restaurant.

Universal Orlando Resort’s newest restaurant, Bigfire, is now officially open. This new dining concept replaces the former Emeril’s Orlando, and takes its inspiration from the joy of cooking over an open fire. Let your mind drift back to garden BBQs, camping trips, and memorable summer holidays. This is the kind of ambience and food you can expect from Bigfire.

Why you should visit Bigfire:

  • The inside resembles a lakeside summer house - cozy, welcoming and a great place to dine with family and friends 

  • It’s decorated in a natural design - think wood, cast iron and camp lanterns. Bringing the great American outdoors, inside.

  • Chefs prepare food on a custom wood fire grill

  • The food and even some of the cocktails are expertly matched with different woods, including cherry, pecan and oak. 

  • You can make your own S’Mores right at your table!
