I really wanted to like this restaurant after Adriana, our fantastic server at Flying Fish recommended it to us a few months ago. We tried it right before the shut down. The food was good, but it was the worst service we ever had. Raymond...was our server, and upon realizing we both lived in Winter Garden, he told us we didn't look like we could afford his neighborhood. He then told us how much he hated children, and how they were building a school near his house and how he was upset about it. We have children, but left them at home, and we just felt so uncomfortable. We said we were recommended by Flying Fish, and he said there used to be a manager there named Amber, and "that b*** got him fired but he did something with the union so he got his job back". I couldn't believe he would say something like that. He made good recommendations, and the food and rest of the service was good, but we couldn't believe the audacity of him. Not the kind of service we'd ever want. At the end of the meal he pressured us to make sure to tip him extra becuase they'd be closed down for awhile, and it made the already uncomfortable evening that much more unpleasant.More

My husband and I had made reservations here as part of our 50th wedding anniversary trip to Disney World. I'm not sure how the restaurant found out it was a very special anniversary for us, but we were treated like royalty from the time we...walked in the door! Every staff member knew it was our 50th and congratulated us. The chef, the pastry chef and our waiter each sent us a complimentary food item during our meal, and when our meal was finished the bartender sent us 2 complimentary flutes of champagne! Our waiter David was wonderful and very knowledgeable. The steak and sides were delicious! All in all, it was a delightful evening, and we will definitely return to the Yachtsman Steakhouse on future trips to WDW!More

The Restaurant was not overly busy. We were a group of 6. Waiter was doing his best but the kitchen and food timing was extremely slow this past Saturday night. Our entrees took over an hour to come out. They were actually giving out mini...desserts. Then when the food finally came some of the appetizers and sides were not right. The manager gave a credit of 20% however, this was really the discount as annual pass holders we should have received anyways. Then I reviewed my receipt at home and realized I tipped $100.00 for the table but then realized that the manager added 18% or 98.64 already on the bill. That again voided the 20% credit by me not being told it was on there by someone on staff. This was on my husband's bucket list and it was his Birthday - he was very disappointed overall and embarrassed he convinced his friends to come celebrate with him.More

Ate myself into oblivion! Service and food never disappoints. The ambience is so lovely but not stuffy, at all. We had a table next to a window in the round part of restaurant, very nice.

We've been here before and I think perhaps even reviewed previously. I recall that the first time the food was great but the service was a bit lacking (a bit like it was forced or we were being served by someone that really didn't want...to be there). This time however, our server was great, the food was excellent, and with one side dish that wasn't quite right, they left it on the table (for us to eat if we wished), brought a replacement (which was perfect) and took the item off the bill (without telling us). All of it without a single bit of fuss. I cannot think of a better way to handle the situation. We were very well looked after and as a result I am sure we stayed a bit longer, had a second $100 bottle of champagne and had dessert, which we we not planning to.More

Good wine list not great by the glass...but ok. The service was nice but the meal took forever to get. The steak is the reason I gave it a 3More

So....it was not my dime. I was invited to dinner. Was told we had reservations at the Yacht Club Steakhouse. Check the dress code and looked forward to an awsome meal. The Guard at the gate built it up saying the longest walk for an...awesome meal. My highlight seeing my daughter. My disappointment, well. Let's start with dress code. Collared shirts for men. No swim suit attire. I chose coat and tie. But they still let in people with t shirts. If you are going to have up scale pricey atmosphere enforce your dress code. Fortunately the company I was with was great because 3 hours later we were able to cash out. I could even tell our server was frazzled that our meall took so long. I asked "did they find the cow???".For the price to expect a high level of service I feel we did not get it and I am easily pleased. the food.....could have gone to Longhorns and done just as well. Would not go back on my dime. I don't look a gift horse in the mouth but they could have should have done better. DisappointedMore

This is an actual steakhouse that should not be missed. The most legitimate restaurant on property. And plenty more than steak on the menu. I will not visit Disney without a visit here.

We were celebrating our 30th anniversary my parents 60th anniversary and our daughter’s engagement this restaurant made us feel so special. From personalized keepsake menus, celebration desserts and a champagne toast all unexpected. The food was to die for and our server Carrie was the...best. Highly recommend.More

We dined here a couple weeks ago as a party of 7. It was our arrival day at Disney and I knew we would be hungry so we booked an early 5:15 seating which is just after the restaurant opened. Our server Bev has been...at the Yachtsman for 24 years and it shows. She was amazing. 5 of the 7 of us ordered the filet and they were all cooked perfectly. The bread service was delicious with the garlic and we all were happy with our meals. I also really liked the quieter less chaotic atmosphere here.More

They were exceptionally accommodating. I would just discuss your concern with the waitress. The food is very wholesome so I don’t see why your needs could not be met. Enjoy!
