I stayed at the Saratoga Springs resort last week on vacation and had dinner at the Turf Club the first night we stayed there (we arrived on a Sunday afternoon and were happy to have a low-key evening after traveling all day). We ordered the pasta with chicken and the prime rib - both were wonderful! Rachel was our server and was very personable and attentive - we liked her a lot. We went back to the Turf Club on our last night to finish off vacation the way we started. While this is not one of Disney's more popular dining options, we thought it was great and felt that it should be getting more recognition than it does. Pricing was reasonable for the quality and portions that you get.

We arrived at Saratoga Springs to stay overnight before flying back to the UK and made a reservation for 8.10pm. We arrived early at the restaurant (7.35pm) and said we would have a drink in the bar area and that we weren't in a rush. The front of house lady said that wasn't a problem and gave us a bleeper. The bleeper went off at 08:25pm we went to the desk and it took them another 10 minutes to seat us! What is the point in making a reservation when they take walk in's and you don't get seated until 25 minutes later and the fact that the front of house and manager couldn't get their story straight just added insult to injury!
When we were seated the waitress was very good and the food could not be faulted but the management and front of house let this reastaurant down badly. These things shouldn't happen when you are paying top dollar, it's not the Disney way. This is the second time we've had problems at this place and we won't be back!

We went for a family dinner at the Turf Club during a previous visit to WDW and had promised ourselves a return visit during our next vacation. On this occasion the food was very disappointing. My son had a pasta meal and the pasta was swimming in oil and the other meals were quite bland and very dry. Overall a very disappointing meal. As regular WDW visitors who frequently dine in the Resort hotels we are of the opinion that the overall quality of the meals have significantly deteriorated in recent years and are no longer the 'special' dining experiences of old. Possibly the introduction of the Disney Dining Plan has been at the expense of the quality of food prepared. Will not be returning to the Turf Club again.

Like the rest of the Saratoga Springs resort, Turf Club has a refined horse racing theme. It isn't overdone in the restaurant, and there are the usual options for an American style restaurant. Being Disney, the food prices are probably higher than you would expect elsewhere but the convenience can't be beat if you are staying in this resort.

The atmosphere is adult-friendly and "clubby" - the bar outside the dining room had a pool table. But of course, there were kids sitting near to us.

Although we made reservations the same day, I suspect we needn't have bothered. There seemed to be plenty of room on this Thursday night before the Memorial Day weekend.

Good location, chilled out lounge feel. My wife and I were seated after 2 sips of our drinks. The service for us was exceptional. Then menu is full of great things. I had the NY strip AMAZING. Can't say enough about how great this place is. GO TONIGHT
