My 16 year old son had the surf and turf in June. When he saw it cost $65, he got psyched to order it.

No one had jeans on in June, but it was very hot out. My son wore khaki dress shorts with a nice colored T-shirt and button-up plaid over it. The other guys in our party (father- and brother-in-law, and nephew) wore khaki slacks with polo shirts. Mom-in-law and I wore nice crop pants and blouses. My sister-in-law was in a maxi dress while my niece was in a shorter dress.

We were celebrating my in-laws' 50th wedding anniversary, and let me tell that our dinner was positively grand. It was a very special occasion and the restaurant was perfect! We loved our food and our server and had a wonderful time.

Hope you have a great trip, OP!

We've gone there often for dinner & were last there in Nov/Dec 2011. There were so many people there who were dressed tacky. Please note that however they were dressed or undressed, they didn't bother us as long as they didn't reach for our food! Just answering your question regarding the dress code.

Many looked like they had just come from the park - shorts, tshirts, tshirts with slogans & designs, thongs, ball caps, sun visors, etc. From what I saw, I would think a pair of jeans would be an improvement. If I were you, I'd pack the jeans for Yachtsman's.

We eat at the Yachtsman every trip and I guess we have been lucky in that I have never seen anyone dressed inappropriately and never anyone in a thong.

That said, we have seen dress shorts with polo shirts, dress jeans, with a nice shirt, capris and we have seen men in coats with ties.

The men in our family wear Docker's slacks with polo collar shirts and the women wore, casual dresses, skirts with nice tops, or dress pants with appropriate tops.

I could never go into a restaurant that has flowers and white table cloths and be comfortable unless I was neatly dressed.

I would not wear jeans to Yachtsman or any Signature Restaurant. I don't believe you would be turned away, but we are not comfortable unless we dress up just a bit. It is part of the Signature experience for us.
MY DH and DS wear dress shorts and nice collared polo shirts. I usually wear nice linen capris and a dressy blouse and fancy sandals.
As others have said, everything on the menu is available on the DDP.

I wouldn't wear jeans either, you probably wouldn't be turned away but I'd still rather wear something a little "smarter'" like chinos.

Nothing wrong with jeans at all. I ate in all of the signatures, and the majority of all diners were dressed casually in jeans, shorts, etc. Obviously, you want to look neat and clean. With the exception of Victoria & Alberts, where jackets are required, all of the signature restaurants are on the casual side.

When I went in Nov 2010 my travel mates and I all wore nice shirts and jeans. This is also my plan at our Artisan Point dinner this trip since we'll be in MK that day.

I have an ADR ay Yachtsman on my birthday this year and since we'll be staying at the BC I might do a quick stop at our room to dress up a little but more so cause of the birthday (the big 3-0 ) than the restaurant

Yes, they way she talked it was for Yachtsman only. Why I do not know but I was bummed because I don't eat steak, I sacraficed and went for DH but it eas worth it As far as I know Narcoosee's still has lobster. The WDW dining app I have does still show it available but no longer shows Surf & Turf available at Yachtsman. Good luck!

Sorry to respond to an old thread, but I just had to respond to Sammie's hilarious response to my post which included that I saw people in Yachtsman in "thongs".

I'm assuming that Sammie knows that "thongs" are also sandals with straps between the toes. But I'll admit, it would be very interesting indeed to see a diner wearing a body thong - which I assume Sammie meant because of the Maybe not, but then it was a hilarious thought - or else I just have a weird sense of humor!

It used to be a classier place, but the DDP wrecked it in a hurry. Last time we were there, we saw no less than 4 men in tank tops (with the obligatory hat on backwards), kids running around everywhere.. may as well have been at the coconut races at Ohana..

I totally read the post to mean there were people dining in skimpy underwear. Then I remembered that my mom always calls flip flops "thongs." Whenever I tease her about it she says that everyone used to call them that. I'm glad to know you were referring to shoes

I had planned to get the surf and turf when we went last week, but it wasn't on the menu. I was quite happy with the Prime NY Strip though

How is the Dining Plan to blame for this?
