A Look at the Lunch Menu at STK Orlando in Disney Springs

It’s been just over four months since STK Orlando opened its doors in Disney Springs.

We visited STK for dinner on opening night in late May. It gave us the chance to try a few signature dishes that STK restaurants around the country are known for along with offerings unique to STK Orlando. (For those unfamiliar with STK, this high-end steakhouse has locations in New York, Atlanta, Chicago, London, and San Diego, among others.)

In its earliest days, the restaurant opened for dinner only at 5:00 pm daily. However, lunch service kicked off about a week after opening, and we thought we’d take a little time today to show you what’s on the menu for lunch at STK, in case you’re interested in trying out this signature restaurant with a more casual, daytime vibe.

If you read our first review of STK, then much about the first page of the Lunch menu will look familiar to you.
