“Good food, okay service, loud atmosphere”
Reviewed October 10, 2012

We found a common theme with Disney park/property restaurants: they are loud. Once you get past that at the Yachtsman, the food is really very good. We had the heirloom tomato appetizer and it was delicious! I was a bit annoyed with our server who kept referring to my choice of Corn and Truffle Agnolotti as a "diet" meal. While I'm not a vegetarian, I could see someone taking offense at this, especially since it was the only meatless entree on the menu.

“Always a Magical Experience!”
Reviewed October 7, 2012

My wife, eight year old son and I have been dinning at the Yachtsman Steakhouse for years and look forward to it each and every time. We may go if we are lucky once every 9 months, last week twice, but Susan remembers my eight year old son's selection of a very rare Filet each time and provides us with with excellent service. We were fortunate to meet Oscar this time along with Susan for a wonderful (Magical ) experience. My son's enjoys walking by the open kitchen to compliment the Chef's on their food, they all wished him a Happy Birthday. My son came back to the table and wanted to buy the kitchen staff a round of cold beers, we told him next time. How could they say no? We are looking forward to a wonderful experience again in a couple of months..

“You can do better for a lot less”
Reviewed October 6, 2012

Food was OK. We have had comparable at Outback and Texas Roadhouse so absolutely not worth the money ($164 for two adults and one child with only one glass of wine). The service was POOR at best - the wait between salad, entree, and dessert was interminable. No refills on drinks or even water was noticed or offered. Don't bother!!! We had better service at supposedly lesser quality restaurants on the Disney properties such as Portebello, 50's Prime Time Diner and Nine Dragons. As a side note - had to take my little girl to the Ladies' Room. Three stalls - one missing a door and no toilet paper in any stall. Really?!!!

Best meal at Disney hands down. Service was wonderful, food was amazing, and it was in a wonderful setting. Worth the trip to the Yacht Club to find out for yourself!
