Pour Choice Taphouse
Root for your home team at Pour Choice Taphouse in the Mills 50 District, which hosts a weekly Football Sunday Funday throughout the NFL season.

Ivanhoe Park Brewing is an official partner of some of Orlando’s top sports teams, with dedicated brews inspired by the Orlando Guardians (XFL) and Orlando Solar Bears (hockey). There’s no NFL-specific brew yet, but that won’t stop you from celebrating a big football win in the Ivanhoe Village Main Street district.
Places to Watch NFL Football in Orlando’s Tourism Districts
Tucked inside Hilton Orlando on International Drive, FastBreak is Orlando’s newest sports bar and restaurant, with plenty of premium seating and food and drink inspired by your favorite sports. Dine inside or out in the biergarten — either option has plenty of big screen action in store — and order sports-inspired bites like the Wisconsin Cheese Curds, Prop & Peller Pretzel “for the team,” and Major League Waygu hot dog with foie gras, whiskey onion, and truffle mustard.
Catch all the game-day action at American Social, a modern gastropub moments from Universal Orlando Resort. You can even watch several games all at once thanks to multiple televisions throughout the bar, all while dining on elevated dishes like guavanero chicken wings, steak frites, and goat cheese croquettes.

Teak Neighborhood Grill
Also near Universal Orlando Resort, Teak Neighborhood Grill is a laid-back local eatery with inventive burgers, cocktails, draft beer, and plenty of TVs. Head out to the patio to catch all the raucous game day action or stay inside for a quieter vibe.

Try the Mike Bison or go with my personal favorite, The Drunken Monk, for a game-winning meal.
Tip: Teak has a second location in Maitland, and on non-game days, you can find even more flavorful fare from the Teak team at RusTeak Restaurant & Wine Bar, an elevated New American eatery with two Central Florida locations.
