Review: Captain’s Grille: Disney’s Yacht Club Resort

Captain’s Grille is located in the main building at Disney’s Yacht Club, on the right side as you enter the building. There is a nautical theme throughout, as there also is in the resort’s lobby. It’s a theme that is not overdone, it is more on the subtle side. My husband, daughter and I decided to grab a late lunch there on a Saturday afternoon. They stop serving lunch at 2:00 so I made a 1:50 reservation. It was the last reservation of the time period. The restaurant was not at all crowded, there were only a handful of diners still there. Since it was the day before Easter, when everything Disney is packed, it was nice to eat in a spacious restaurant that was not at all crowded.

Alba was a server. She went over the specials and a couple of items on the menu. We asked for ice water, which she brought to us right away. By then we were ready to order. My daughter and I each ordered the vegetarian option, the Tomato and Mozzarella Sandwich. We ordered it without the arugula vinaigrette that normally comes with it. Alba asked if we wanted a side of Vegetable Orzo Salad or fries. We both decided on the salad. My husband picked the Fish and Chips.

While we were waiting on our meals the staff was getting the dining area ready for dinner, which starts at 5:00. We did not wait long for our food. The sandwich was delicious, it was stuffed with large slices of fresh tomato, alternating with thick mozzarella slices. The focaccai bread that it was served on was covered in sea salt. The bread was quite good but they could have cut back a bit on the salt. The Vegetable Orzo Salad was just fair. There weren’t many vegetables in it and there was too much vinegar. My daughter and I agreed that we should have split the sandwich like we often do, it was incredibly filling. It was a very good vegetarian option.

My husband’s Fish and Chips were exactly what you would expect. Two large pieces of cod were covered with batter and deep fried. The accompanying fries were cut thick and served as a generous portion. Ketchup and tartar sauce were served on the side. His meal was filling as well so we all opted to skip dessert.

F.A.S.T. Review

F-Food- Very good. The vegetarian option was not overly fancy (which is the way to do it) and the traditional Fish and Chips were done the way that they should be done.

A-Atmosphere- Relaxed. I don’t know what it is like when it is busy but we were able to sit back and enjoy the nautical theme.

S-Service- Very good. Even though we were there right at the end of lunch we never felt rushed.

T-Tips- If this is a “must try” restaurant for you make a late lunch reservation or just walk up after 1:30 and ask for a table. It shouldn’t be crowded. FYI, the dinner menu is quite different from the lunch menu, so look over both before you decide when you want to eat.

About PaulaK

I grew up in Western Massachusetts. When I was nine my family went to Disneyland and I was hooked. I grew up, attended New England College in Henniker, NH and eventually moved to Virginia. I worked as a disc jockey, married and became a full time mom when our daughter was born. Fast forward several years. In 2010 we moved to Central Florida and my Disney obsession grew. I now work as a freelance writer and spend my spare time in the parks. Under the name Paula Brown I penned the novels Dream Wanderers and The Coffee Cruiser. I also am a co-author of Dining at Walt Disney World: The Definitive Guide. I'm obsessed with Star Wars, so this is a good time to live in Central Florida. I've been a vegetarian for well over a decade, a choice that my daughter eventually made as well. While my husband still hasn't joined us fully he has given up most meats except for seafood. I was relieved to find that vegetarian dining is not difficult at Walt Disney World.
