This place was HORRIBLE. Our meal took 3 hours and everything literally got worse as it went on.

Waitress was terrible. We sat there for 30 mins. before she took our drink order. Then she left and 20 mins later came back with everything wrong. Did nothing about it.

Took our order. 30 minutes later our apps came. They were not delivered by the waitress.

The shrimp was mushy - we complained, they did nothing. Salads were below average.

Our Steaks came out all wrong. One ordered the Porterhouse and got the Fillet. One got a steak that had been sitting out so long that the plate was even cold. One ordered Rare and got Medium Well. We sent back the cold steak. They put it on the grill and it came out Well Done and the side was now freezing cold. Pathetic.

The desert "log" was horrific. The creme brulee was the worst I have ever had on Disney property. And the ice cream was not even Dairy Queen quality.

I circled a tip and the waitress never came back with the change (I had no intention on tipping 35%!!!!) The manager told us that we should have complained earlier. (Come on! We did, the manager didn't come over until the end of the meal even after our we did complain.)

We never got a single drink refill. We watched two other tables get up and leave.

This place is HORRIBLE! Go elsewhere. It is a disaster.

Perfect evening!! My husband and I invited another couple to join us for our anniversary dinner and we were not disappointed. As soon as we arrived and met our waitress, we knew it was going to be a great evening. Our waitress was very friendly and knowledgeable with the chefs specials. The ladies had an 8 oz filet mignon which was out of this world. Us men had two different types of steaks and both were excellent. We were allowed to select from the side dishes and all were generous and out of this world. Portions were large enough that we did not feel the need for dessert. Since it was our anniversary we received 4 sweets on an anniversay plate as a final touch.

On our recent WDW Trip we had the great pleasure of eating at the Yachtsman and we can't rave enough about it. First, if you're lucky enough to get Darrick as your tour guide through the incredible menu experience, you're in for a treat and make sure to follow his suggestions...he knows the menu like the back of his hand. This was by leaps and bounds the best restaurant we found at Disney this go around. It was top-level service, food and drinks. Even our seven and thirteen year old were catered to enabling whole family really enjoyed the evening!!

Best part is the atmosphere and the roasted garlic cloves for the bread and butter.
Had to send back 2 of the 3 sides. The were simply inedible. Way better places to eat for half the price of our meal can be found not to far away. Skip it and know you made the right choice.
