About MOOR at Gaylord Palms Resort
At MOOR it all starts with fresh food procured from the land and sea. We work with local farmers and fishmongers to find sustainable and seasonal ingredients that simply taste delicious. Whenever possible, we make every effort to source our food responsibly. Our vision is to always think globally while sourcing locally. In essence, we are Mindful Of Our Resources.
There is more to MOOR than what we serve on the table. MOOR is a state of mind. It’s that time at sea when you’ve found your destination and all is right with the world. The boat is anchored and the drinks are in hand. Kick back and unwind aboard our reimagined dockside dining space. With the charm of a captain’s paradise and the class of an upscale yacht club, MOOR is everything you’ve imagined and more. But don’t let the sophistication scare you - we're all here to have a good time.
And always remember… there ’s MOOR to Life.

MOOR at Gaylord Palms Resort Ratings and Reviews
Decent meal but a bit pricey. Did not appreciate having to pay extra for an olive stuffed with blue cheese, when purchasing a $10-15 martini, was a bit put off, but resort has seen to be more Corporate America driven than being customer focused and family driven. More reasonable approach would drive more business through doors, but not everyone gets that. No fault of staff on the front line, rather 'dumb' management decision who never engage with customers.
Nice ambience. Gumbo was good. My grouper came out cold but then I spoke to my waitress, they made me another piece that was superb. My husband and son had a burger and fish sandwich. They enjoyed their sandwiches. My drink was good but not sure it was worth $14. Would recommend this place. The food was good with nice setting.
The Moor is a unique place because you can be "outdoors" and on "the water" while still being inside a grand, air conditioned hotel. The Atrium of the Gaylord Palms is extraordinary. We spent a whole hour before dinner and more time after dinner just looking around the hotel grounds. The seafood at the Moor was fantastic and the service was really good. Our server Janet was friendly, attentive and helpful when discussing menu options. While the Moor is a bit pricey, I recommend it for making a special occasion really special.
Our waitress, Ana, was wonderful. She knew the menu and told us about the food being locally sourced. Make excellent recommendations. I ordered the fresh mahi-mahi grilled. It was cooked well but with so seasoning of any sort and was pretty tasteless. It did not appear to be grilled. Looked more like it was plopped in a frying pan and flipped. It certainly needed some sort of seasoning. I hated psying for tasteless fish. My husband ordered fried grouper. It was lightly battered and crispy but the fish was was moist and delicious. The risotto was amazing as was the she-crab soup. The small desserts are delicious and just enough.
Moor, if you have to eat at the Gaylord Palms, was relaxing and the atmosphere was perfect for the first night at the resort. The food was good, not great and the service was adequate. We did not eat at any of the other restaurants so I have nothing to compare.
2nd time at Moor. Excellent well prepared local fresh fish. Service was very good. Simple preparation on quality fresh fish. Accompaniments were very good - fennel risotto and mixed veggies. Deserts were great. Love the atmosphere of this restaurant in the lovely atrium at Gaylord Palms. The cocktails were very good and nice selection of wines. Had golden tile fish and wife had mahi mahi both cooked very well though I would have preferred a little lighter cook on the golden tile...still excellent. Thanks!
I was not impressed with MOOR. A reservation was made prior two weeks prior to arrival however, when we arrived, they had to get out table ready so there was a wait. It was very crowded for 8 people at the table. The food (Mahi, Mahi) was overcooked and I think, the vegetables were just put in the pan long enough to get semi-warm. The vegetables were undercooked. For the quality of the food, MOOR is very high priced and the menu is very limited. The only good thing was dessert. Their desserts are AWESOME.
Setting is very cool and worth it just to see. The food was average at best. They kept bringing the wrong dishes. Seafood locally per the menu was already gone at 4:15 in the afternoon - change the menu. Seafood dishes we did get were bland at best. And when our ordered rare burger was brought well done, we sent it back, it came back again cooked properly but with nothing else, no condiments, lettuce, tomato (they forgot). But never before have 3 different wait staff dropped entire trays of plates, glass ware etc within a 90 minute period. Comical but sad. It was New Years Eve, and they were trying hard to Turn Tables - which was disappointing as there were lots of open tables. There needs to be a lot more training of the staff.
We were seated at a dirty table and the hostess never advised the server that we were seated. After a long delay before service started it was interesting. We had to advise that we had no napkins and cutlery, once we got through that things went smoothly. One meal was not good but it was taken off our bill. So the good that was good was very good but it was a mixed experience.
The SS Gaylord was a great place to have Christmas Dinner. The wait staff was excellent despite the hustle and bustle of a restaurant on Christmas Day. Steven and AJ were awesome and were very attentive to us. The food was excellent. The MOOR is definitely worth a visit.
