NBC Sports Grill & Brew is the latest addition in the continuing facelift of Universal CityWalk. It is a sports-focused dining experience with nearly 100 HD TV screens, an expansive 75+ item menu, open-fire grills in the middle of the restaurant, and more than 100 unique beer selections.
Oh, and we almost forgot the more-than-120-foot-wide HD stadium screen that towers over the entrance of the building. The restaurant is located on your right just before you reach the entrance of Universal Studios Florida.
Hours: Now through October 29 the restaurant is open 4pm – 1am. October 30 – indefinitely: 11am – 1am.

NBC Sports Grill & Brew boasts more than 100 unique beer selections, ranging from craft beers to regional brews. However, our recommendation is the house 862 Orlando – an exclusive draft you can only find at the restaurant. NBC Sports Grill & Brew also has a seasonal brew. Both of these are brewed by Florida Beer Company, the same brewer of the Duff beer found in Springfield.
