Among the hundreds of eating spots in Walt Disney Worlds culinary universe, only a few could be described as full-fledged steakhouses. Of those, Yachtsman Steakhouse at Disneys Yacht Club Resort is arguably the best. The meat is of high quality, and the portions are generous.
Did I say generous?
Let me tell you about the prime rib. My friend ordered the admirals cut, thinking that the captains cut wouldnt, well, cut it. This piece of meat was large enough to have its own Zip Code. I was surprised it took only one person to carry it to the table.
But not only was it a massive mound of meat, it was tender, too. The medium-rare cut was a juicy red and took no effort to cut. It was served au jus, along with straight horseradish and a horseradish cream sauce. Absolutely marvelous.
I also enjoyed the mixed grill, which featured smaller cuts of a filet, lamb chop and chicken breast. The steak was cooked exactly the way I ordered it and had a terrific charred outside with a warm red center. The lamb chop was dusted with rosemary and a bit of garlic, perfect accompaniments for the mild flavor of the lamb. And the chicken breast was thick and moist, if a little boring next to the other two.
As you enter the restaurant, you have the opportunity to say hello to your meal. Just to one side of the hostess stand is a large, glassed, refrigerated room where huge slabs of beef are aging. A sample tray with the various cuts of meat is also on display here.
