While Dining has become as much a part of a vacation at the Walt Disney World Resort as many of the theme park attractions that they are known for, many of the Disney Resort Hotel restaurants don't get the attention that they deserve. Today, Only WDWorld will be reviewing one of the these under appreciated restaurants: The Captain's Grille at Disney's Yacht Club Resort.
Captain's GrilleFar from the over the top themed restaurants that you can find at Disney World, the Captain's Grille, located within Disney's Yacht Club Resort, provides a much more sedated, nautical atmosphere, that fits the theme and mood of the resort.
The appeal of this restaurant is the menu and the quality of the food. The prices are also much more reasonable than it's more well-known Disney Signature Restaurant neighbor The Yachtsman Steakhouse. The atmosphere is semi-casual and it can actually get rather noisy depending upon how many families are dining that evening.
The location of the restaurant is attraction in that it is walking (or Friendship Boat ride) distance from both Epcot and Disney's Hollywood Studios, making it a great choice if you are spending the day at either of these Disney Theme parks.
The MenuThe Captain's Grille cuisine includes a variety of dishes that embrace the New England coast that the Resort is based upon. The restaurant serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner, but we will only be re
viewing the dinner that we ate recently.
