Anyone who knows me knows I'm a picky eater. I don't eat fancy, and I'm definitely a steak and potatoes kind of girl. So when we were looking for ADRs to make for our January trip, I knew I wanted a great steak. Enter Yachtsman Steakhouse. I knew it was a signature restaurant, but we had the dining credits to spare. Also, it was our birthday trip, and I wanted it to be as special as possible. It so was.
It's not always easy getting to the Yacht Club from another resort if you don't have a car. We chose to take the bus to Hollywood Studios and then the Friendship Boat to the Yacht Club. If my knee was feeling better, we might have walked. It's quite a nice walk along the water if your legs aren't tired or in pain. I love the Friendship Boats, but they are SLOW. After what seemed like forever, we finally made it to the Yacht Club and found our way to the restaurant.
When we were seated, we were surprised and happy to find that we had special menus that said "Happy Birthday!" And we were encouraged to keep them! I was also excited when our waiter told us that since we were on the dining plan, virgin strawberry daiquiris were included as a nonalcoholic beverage. Naturally, I ordered one. For dinner, James ordered a Lobster Bisque appetizer and the 24 ounce Porterhouse steak. I decided to skip an appetizer, and I went with the 8 ounce filet mignon. Our waiter called it the "lady steak." Which was very true in my case.

Overall, we really liked Yachtsman Steakhouse, and I would definitely go back. I think it's worth two dining credits, especially if you get the 24 ounce steak. No matter how much you can eat, you won't leave hungry! And get the creme brulee! For the current dinner menu, click here.
