The Seafire Inn (or Seafire Grill... we've seen it both ways) features limited indoor and outdoor covered seating. There is a larger dining area in an enclosed room just to the side of the food preparation area, which may or may not be open for general seating depending of what time of day (or year) it is.

The larger seating area we're speaking of, is considered flex-space and is often used for special dining events, most of which are seasonal.

Food offerings in the cafe-style restaurant now include Tex-Mex flavors, mostly built around chicken or steak fajita stuffings. Tex-Mex isn't something that you can readily find at other SeaWorld dining locations, and so the new offerings are a welcome change to what had been there before.

Prior to this change (which happened in the late-spring of 2015), the Seafire Inn had been offering cafe-style entrées... Including a Hand Carved Roast Turkey Sandwich, Fish and Chips, a Mediterranean Veggie Wrap, and Chicken Stir Fry.

The recent change to Tex-Mex at SeaWorld Orlando's Seafire Grill seems to be agreeing with guests because the location is noticeably busier than it had been in the past. Although Tex-Mex isn't really my thing, I've found all the entries so far to be quite good and surprisingly full of flavor.

On a recent visit I tried the "Steak" version of their Fajita Sandwich (which can be made with chicken or beef), and for the price, it was piled high with decent quality grilled fajita steak. The spice notes were spot-on for a "street food" type of sandwich, and the grilled onions (which were actually placed on the sandwich first, so... they're under the pile of meat) added, texture, flavor and some juiciness to the entree.

It's said to be served on a Torpedo Roll, and while I have no idea what the culinary significance of that is… it did look like a torpedo, so thumbs up there! Paired with a pile of hot fresh thick-cut fries, and there's really not much to complain about here. A great sandwich that I would totally recommend to anyone looking to get away from the Burgers and BBQ that dominate SeaWorld's menu lineup these days.

As a street-food type of sandwich, that's prepared as you order it, this one gets high marks from me. The current price seems fair, as long as the meat stays lean.

Seafire Grill is still one of SeaWorld's least "themed" locations however, so you're not really going to find yourself immersed in any particular design style. There is a decent amount of outdoor seating that wraps around the building, but dedicated indoor seating is a bit limited.

Unless… the Off-Broadway Dinner Theater Stage-Room is open (because I frankly, don't know what else to call it)… then there's plenty of dark, (possibly quiet), air-conditioned seating. Actually, the room is quite nice and a bit out of the way. No, there's not going to be anything of interest happening on the stage, but it's still a pretty cool room. (If you're curious, this "stage room" is where Santa's Fireside Feast is usually located, along with a few other special events.)

If you're in the mood for Tex-Mex, any of The Seafire Grill's hot items (the Fajitas, the Fajita Sandwich, or the Tex-Mex Rice Bowl) would be a good choice!

Today we're stopping by the Seafire Grill, or Seafire Inn, or… well they're still in the process of changing all of the signs, so we'll just call it "The Seafire".

Not too long ago, the restaurant changed over from a rather nondescript menu, to more of a Tex-Mex affair (i.e. the name change from "Inn" to "Grill", and if just looking at the number of people eating here, it seems like it's been a good move.

While the environment hasn't changed much, the food is decent, if you like Tex-Mex. I have tried a couple of those entrees, but I'll save those for another review. Because not everyone is into the cuisine though, I picked up the "Baja Cobb Salad", to see how one of the Tex-Mex alternatives stacked up.

While not exactly being a "Cobb" salad, this new take on the California favorite includes black beans, crumbled hard boiled eggs, a couple kinds of graded cheese (both tasting about the same), a mild and chunky pico de gallo (which is basically diced tomatoes with a few onions and spices tossed in), and is served with a side cup of avocado ranch dressing.

The salad wasn't chopped to order, but it was fairly fresh. The key here (like most quick service locations at SeaWorld) is to get there when the place is busy. The likelihood that you'll get a fresh salad increases, because they're only brought out "on the line" for guests, in small batches. If they're constantly being eaten, the salads are constantly being made.

The only real issue I have with the Baja Cobb, is the same issue that I have with most (i.e. "all" so far) entree-level salads at SeaWorld… they're very deconstructed. It's great seeing all the stuff on top of the salad. You know exactly what you're getting, you can see how fresh it is, and it makes for great photos… but they're a little hard to eat.

If you just eat off the top, you'll be left with a lot of mid to dark green lettuce as you finish you're lunch… and no one wants the last bites of a great salad to be just lettuce and dressing.

My suggestion (and they're going to love me for this one), is to ask for an empty plate or bowl. When you get to your seat, put the empty bowl on top of your salad, and carefully turn the whole thing upside down. It's easier to pick out a few of the unruly, large-cut pieces of lettuce that way, and just set them aside for a moment. Then pour on the dressing (wherever you want), and mix-and-match lettuce with the rest of the stuff as you're eating. You'll get a better mix of flavors, and not risk dumping any of the toppings on the table if a giant piece of lettuce attaches itself to your fork.

All in all, the Baja Cobb Salad is a decent alternative to Tex-Mex, and a welcome addition to the menu at Seafire. I wish it were a bit easier to eat, (or came with a top, so I could shake the thing up a bit), but it is nice being able to find more health conscious alternatives on the menu boards. While I can't be 100% certain this would be certified "vegetarian", I can't imagine why it wouldn't be… there really was no meat anywhere in the salad, but if it's important to you, (as always), I would ask the staff, just to make sure.

I stopped in to try the new Tex-Mex Rice Bowl and it was a great little entree. All the components were kept separate, and had distinct flavors once assembled in the bowl. The sour cream was real, which isn't the case with some fast-casual Tex-Mex places. I'm looking forward to trying some of the other entrées on the menu. It was priced a little high for the amount of "stuff" in the bowl, even for a theme park.

The room is basically quiet to rest plus eat. Wish the food was better. The hot turkey sandwich in the pretty pretzel bread didn't taste like pretael bread. I ended up taking out the makings and eating them plain. Fish & chips were greasy. The fruit cup was good.
