Disney Restaurant Review: Captain's Grille


When my dad & family came to Disney, they put me in charge of making the restaurant reservations for the entire trip. I tried to make it as diverse as possible, while making sure there would be something that everyone would eat on the menu. We decided to eat at the Captain's Grille in Disney's Yacht Club Resort. We're not really buffet people, and we wanted something near the parks so Captain's Grille was perfect. It's about a five minute walk from Epcot, which was good because we had spent the morning there and wanted to eat a late lunch before heading to our next park. 

We had reservations for around 4:30 (if I remember correctly), and the restaurant opened at 4. Since we got there early, we asked if we could be seated early and they obliged. Obviously, being in the Yacht Club, the restaurant is nautical themed - which I love. Another great thing: air conditioning. Granted, almost all of the restaurants in Disney are air conditioned, but when you're walking around Epcot and it's hot as sin a little A/C is very welcomed. 

The only "downside" that I would say is that it was kind of dark in there, so some people had to use the flashlight on the menu to be able to read everything. Funnily enough, between the five of us, we only ordered two different dishes: the short ribs, and the chef's pasta. Both were absolutely amazing. The service was great, especially since we were some of the only people in there. The pricing is kind of in the middle for a Disney restaurant, most dishes were about $20-30 - we were there for the dinner rush, technically. 

All in all, if you have the money, and want an option outside of the parks, I would say that the Captain's Grille is a very good option. The food is great, the service was amazing, and the atmosphere is cozy. We had an amazing experience, and it is a place that I would like to go back to try maybe breakfast or lunch. I've only ever heard great things about Captain's Grille, and the Yacht Club in general. 

I've eaten at a lot of Disney restaurants, and honestly I'd love to be able to eat at them all (or have the money to be able to eat at them all). Some previous restaurants are: Be Our Guest, Steakhouse 55 (in Disneyland), Via Napoli, 50's Prime Time Cafe, and Kouzzina by Cat Cora. I know I've eaten at others that I just haven't written about like Trails End, Yak & Yeti, and The Wave. So I guess that just means that I'll have to go back and get pictures & write a review ;).
