Today, we have a real treat for you. It’s time to highlight a special dinner at Yachtsman Steakhouse.
This signature dining spot, located at Disney’s Yacht Club Resort, offers up a full array of classic steakhouse fare. But you’ll also find innovative dishes with an emphasis on using seasonal ingredients.
While we often find our favorites still on the menu during a visit, we can always count on some surprises. We had the pleasure of dining there with some friends on a recent trip, and I just had to share with you a glimpse of our special meal.
32 Ounce Porterhouse for Two at Yachtsman Steakhouse
I always enjoy a visit to Yachtsman Steakhouse. (Check out this dinner review of a full meal we enjoyed here recently.) While the atmosphere isn’t particularly inspired, we’ve had some truly amazing meals here!
A quick look at the menu will show you what I mean about the combination of steakhouse-classics-meets-seasonally-inspired fare. And notice the emphasis on Charcuterie — something we’re seeing in other signature restaurants like California Grill as well.
But even though it’s tough to make a choice from all of those steaks, we were after just one thing: the 32 Ounce Porterhouse for Two.
After we placed our order, we were surprised with an Amuse Bouche — this Savory Mickey Waffle! This had to be just about the most adorable started to a meal, ever. The Sweet Potato Waffle was delicious, and I loved all of the little touches on the plate.
Soon, however, we were ready to dig into the main course — that beautiful Porterhouse! It’s presented tableside already cut into pieces. I thought this was a great touch, and made sharing a much neater situation.
You can see that the meat was cooked to the medium rare temperature that we requested. In fact, it was a little on the rare side. The dry-aging process lends complexity and depth to the flavor and makes the meat very tender.
The steak comes with plenty more to share as well, including the Trio of Classic Steakhouse Sides: creamed spinach, mushrooms, and onions.
And I couldn’t help but order the killer Potato Gratin…because I super needed more food, right? Potatoes and a combination of Parmigiano-Reggiano and Gruyere Cheeses. You just can’t turn that down.
Basically, this is a family-style meal of the highest caliber for two people.
And the Garlic Butter! How have I not mentioned it yet? Of course, it lent incredible richness and flavor to the dish. This whole deal won’t likely do any favors for your cholesterol levels, but it sure will wow the rest of you.
With its steep price tag, it is a bit of a splurge…but I’d say it’s well in line with the other menu items here. And it’s a great way to go if you and your dining partner are of one mind when it comes to ordering! (On the other hand, ordering two different things means lots more variety…)
