The resorts area is chain city. For you I might suggest Celebration where you could eat at either Columbia or the Tavern.

Otherwise you could choose from some of the many one off places int he resrts and DTD such as Fulton's. Or sone f the chains that are small and not countty wide such as bahama Breeze.

But, I would go to the sentinel website and check out the recent Foodie awards for local food.

My favorite non-chain restaurant in Kissimmee is Tarantino's. I have known the operators for several years.

I must say, most of our meals are at the big American chains, but, if you fancy Italian, we right love Pacino's on the 192!

The restaurants in the hotel are notable. If you want to head out, then, I agree, perhaps Celebration or Downtown Disney. We do enjoy Tarantinos also Broadway Pizza in Downtown Kissimmee, but not sure worth the additional cost of travel with other options close by, and, again, right in the hotel.
