One room at Yachtsman Steakhouse features a curved wall of windows that look out at Stormalong Bay, the pool area shared by Disney’s Yacht Club Resort and Disney’s Beach Club Resort, the boardwalk, and Crescent Lake. The ceiling in this room is particularly beautiful with rounded windows reminiscent of portholes, a bright teal color, and intricate curved wooden pieces that come together to form a modern, yet classic, architectural feature above.
While the atmosphere at Yachtsman Steakhouse is wonderful, it is the menu that is the true star of any dining experience there. Being a steakhouse, the menu predominantly focuses on traditional butcher’s cuts including an 8-oz Filet Mignon, 16-oz Rib-Eye Steak, and 14-oz Roasted Prime Rib, all of which can be seen hanging in a dry aging room near the entrance of the restaurant.

Moving to the bottom tier of the Chilled Admiral’s Tower for Two, Guests can find a small, square dish that is filled with the charred octopus salad which also features bites of potato. Two additional square dishes feature the tuna tartare and scallop ceviche which are surrounded by a large portion of fresh mussels.

With such an indulgence, comes a hefty price tag and the Chilled Admiral’s Tower for Two is the most expensive item on the menu at Yachtsman Steakhouse and the most expensive seafood offering at the Walt Disney World Resort. The meal costs one hundred and forty dollars which is really not that bad considering the massive amount of fresh seafood that is offered.
The price also becomes more reasonable when Guests factor in that the meal can be shared between two Guests, making it equate to seventy dollars a person. While this is absolutely still an indulgent cost, it is very reasonable considering the amount of fresh seafood available to enjoy.
