Disney’s Yacht Club Resort has elegant dining options. Here are a few of our favorites:

  • Yachtsman Steakhouse: This upscale dinner option allows guests to indulge in 12-oz Prime New York Strip Steak with peppercorn-brandy sauce with a side of truffle macaroni and cheese!  This unforgettable restaurant has a dress code to make the upscale aesthetic of the dining experience.
  • Ale and Compass Restaurant: Serving breakfast, lunch, and dinner, this Eastern Seaboard cuisine restaurant is a comfortable place to enjoy delicious seafood and more. 
  • Beaches and Cream Soda Shop: Although this restaurant is technically located in Disney’s Beach Club Resort, Disney’s Beach Club Resort and Disney’s Yacht Club Resort are neighbors and even connect through a shared hallway.
