By law do restaurants have to display their prices in Orlando?

We were ushered to a table and then before we sat down to a buffet and at no point were prices displayed.

Most states, including Florida, have laws that require the owners of hotels, pubs, restaurants, caf?s, etc, to display a comprehensive price list of items. This can be on the menus, at the entrance to the premises or to the catering area.

How hard is it to ask your waitress/hostess? No it's not a law, that a restaurant
has to show their prices.

We were tired and hungry and by the time we were through the door they literally swept you to the service area with a very brief stop to point out a table. I accept we should have checked but it was quite slick how it was done. and there were no prices anywhere. Didn't think of it at the time and wondered if they should be displayed as had we known the cost we would never have stayed.

It really does sound unfair...even a buffet could have a sign stating their prices. Course, they probably count on tired and hungry people coming in...still isn't right & I'm sorry that happened to you.

You said it all when you said "buffet ". Most buffets use one price for their all you can eat, type of service. And even then the price of service doesn't require posting by law, as the cashier is able to state the pricing policy of the restaurant.

There was no cashier. You entered and were ushered quickly to the table/ buffet line.

Sadly all too many buffets use this technique to boost their bottom line. I always ask the prices of service BEFORE ever being seated. Most of these attempts you mention occur in our area at Chinese buffets. For some reason, they'll rush you in, seat you then shock you with their prices! A very poor business practice, to be sure. :(
