DH and I are going in December and we've decided to do the DDP.

I was hoping I'd be able to have Lobster for dinner one of the nights we're there.

I saw that Cap'n Jacks has twin lobster tails on the menu. Has anyone ordered that using the DDP? The only real reason I'd even bother to eat there is because of the lobster and I'd hate to go and learn that its excluded from the menu because of the price or something. Also, is it any good?

Are there any other places at WDW that are included in the DDP and serve lobster?

We ate at Captain Jack's in September and had the lobster tails. They were wonderful!! DH had the crab cakes app, I had the spinach dip, and both were great as well. We loved it and are planning on returning this September. Great deal on the DDP as the lobster tails are priced around $35. Captain Jack's is the only 1 TS restaurant with lobster on the menu.

She meant CJ - Captain Jack's.

Captain Jacks also has a Surf and Turf where you can have steak and lobster. I think when we return in September, I will have to try that one. Hubby ususally get ribs I think, but their food is really good and we like that it is only one TS.

I was hoping to find some lobster too! Since we added 2 days to our package by booking ASMo instead of Poly, that gives us 2 more nights of dining! So I was looking at CJ. I would love the lobster, but on allearsnet.com for the menu I dont see a steak dish on there. Is there one?

i see the steak is still listed on allears (Top Sirloin with Onion Ragout)

can't decide between the crab cakes (i'm not fond of the ones w/lots of bread crumb filler) and the shrimp cocktail...yum.

A CM from CJ's was posting on here about a month or so ago, and he posted the current menus in April -- no steak, the beef entree is now pot roast, and no more ribs. The menu posted on AllEars for dinner is old, from January 2006. The twin lobster tails is still an option on the Dining Plan, and very popular, obviously. Of course, menus can change any time, and they could have steak back on the menu in the future. Go to CJ's for the seafood -- it's their specialty ::yes:: DH and I don't eat seafood, but my sis and her DH loved the lobster. If you want steak, there's Le Cellier, Wolfgang Puck's Cafe, Grand Floridian Cafe, Concourse Steakhouse, Yachtsmen's, or many other places that specialize in that.

My Dh's tail is really wagging over the lobster. Surf and turf sounds good to me. :dance3:

Thanks much for this thread. Because of reading it, just booked an ADR for Cap'n Jack's for our November trip. The photo of the twin lobster tails looks like it is enough for two people. Too bad they don't have steak on the menu so we could share dinners and have steak & lobster each but we'll figure something out. ;)

Thanks :thumbsup2

We had the surf 'n turf(on menu as:Grilled Beef Filet Mignon and Butter-Poached Lobster Tail - potato gratin and green peppercorn brandy sauce) at Narcoossee's last year (2TS $52) and while the lobster was pretty good, the steak was better! We had a great meal and are returning there in September. (Everything was really nice-food, atmosphere, view of Wishes, etc). The best part of the meal, for me, was the almond crusted cheesecake-best dessert I ever had! (link to review below)

Our server was quick to point out as soon as we were handed menus that the surf 'n turf, as well as the whole Maine lobster ($52), were inc. on DDP:goodvibes
