Shula’s 347 Grill Restaurant Review: Shula’s high-end steakhouse at the Walt Disney World’s Swan & Dolphin hotel is destination dining; Shula’s 347 is a more casual experience on the other end of town, in the white-collar world of Lake Mary’s office towers. Still, the food quality makes it worth a trip for the burger or a Shula steak. The restaurant has its own entrance at the front of the Westin, and serves breakfast, lunch and dinner for hotel guests. It’s most suitable for a business lunch, or for football-themed cocktails (with sports bar TVs in the otherwise chic dining room), but locals and hotel guests fill the dining room and bar most evenings. While the burgers are a hit, for lunch we were happy with the fresh fish sandwich and the Asian chicken salad. For dinner, nosh on appetizers such as crispy ravioli, sweet chili shrimp and spinach-artichoke dip before moving on to the steaks, seafood and other main dishes. We like the grilled shrimp or the filet mignon. The wine list is easy for novice sippers, with wines divided into categories: dry sparkling, sweet white/blush wine, dry light intensity reds, dry full intensity reds, and the like. Desserts are more of an afterthought, as this is a crowd that appears to shun carbs---Key lime pie, apple cobbler, bourbon-chocolate pecan pie.
