ICON Park is ready to welcome Ole Red Orlando, Blake Shelton’s Southern food restaurant.

Ready to turn up the volume on flavor? Ole Red Orlando is ready to open its doors. The Blake Shelton Southern food inspired restaurant and live music venue is set to open on June 19. If you are ready for a little laid back, good times with friends, the new restaurant at ICON Park is ready to welcome you.

Given that Orlando is the theme park capital of the world, the tourist district attracts tons of visitors. In addition, locals are wanting tasty, innovative restaurant options that entice them to eat out. At ICON Park, the food and entertainment spot is always bustling.

With the addition of Ole Red Orlando, more foodies will get a taste of the popular Blake Shelton venue. Joining locations in Oklahoma, Nashville and Tennessee, the Orlando location will quickly become a popular destination.

While the live music will keep people entertained, the Southern-inspired food menu will have people coming back time and again. Although the initial opening might have a slightly limited menu, all the scratch made food sounds quite impressive. Just like Shelton’s personality, these menu items have a touch of misbehaving but will keep people coming back for more.

Looking at the Orlando menu, the dishes are bold in both creativity and flavor. Not to mention, the dishes have a little fun in each bite. The volume is definitely cranked up to high levels.

For example, the Champagne of Chicken features “Miller High Life® Brined Chicken, White Gravy, Buttermilk Biscuits — Nashville Hot or Not.” While many menus have a chicken dish, this version adds a fun twist. Why not pop open a beer why enjoying this dish? Again, it is an example of the vibe that the restaurant is trying to create.

Overall, the menu embraces bold flavors. From the Hot Groupie to the Southern Tater Tot Poutine, these dishes take the familiar and turn up the volume. In some ways, it is like the classic favorites that you remember, but with a downhome makeover.


Whether you are looking to celebrate Father’s Day weekend, a birthday or just wanting to experience some tasty Southern inspired food, Ole Red Orlando will be ready to welcome guests on June 19.
