Let's get this started!

ESPN Club:

One of our favorites.....super busy on a Saturday night but we finally got a seat in the bar area.

My appetizer was the chicken wings (I ordered them hot. They were hardly spicy-bring on the flame next time!). Joe had the chili. Pretty tasty, but not homemade.

Slider burger (whoops. sorry so big and blurry. I assure you the rest of the pics are better!)


Chili


Wings

No dessert-we were way too full!


House of Blues
There were numerous signs outside the door that said photography was not allowed. We probably could have snuck a few pictures of our food but didn't want to test the rules. The band that was performing was amazing. We were sat in the first row so it was quite loud, but still very enjoyable. We will definitely go back. The food had standard brunch items (eggs, sausage, bacon, biscuits, chicken wings, greens.) The desserts were a little less impressive with apple and cherry cobbler.

Up next!

Chef Mickey's Dinner:

We really like Chef Mickey's. The food isn't really anything special, but something about seeing Mickey and Friends in chef's clothes is really cute. We aren't planning on going back anytime soon, but we're not mad we went either.

This is Joe's plate: prime rib, mashed potatoes, ravioli, and broccoli. Again, nothing was spectacular but decent.



My plate was pretty similar:


Desserts! chocolate mousse atop an orea (yum!), carrot cake, and a lemon dessert:

And my plate: chocolate mousse atop an oreo, carrot cake, and apple cobbler:


Here's a couple of Joe and I with The Mouse:




Hollywood and Vine

Hollywood and Vine gets such bad reviews on the Dis Boards and it's really disappointing to me, as it's one of our favorites. All year long I think about those BBQ meatballs. This year, I consumed 6! lol

Here's Joe's plate....much of the same as usual. Prime rib, mashed potatoes, green beans, chicken nuggets, pasta, meatballs and salmon:


And my plate....prime rib, green beans, the first three meatballs , and a very tasty dinner roll with a big dallop of butter!


Joe's dessert plate....a chocolate chocolate cake, mousse cup (my favorite!!!), snickers cheesecake, and a funny looking little carrot cake.


And my dessert plate....sorry it's blurry I had the mousse cup, apple cobbler, and snickers cheesecake.

Alrighty, up next is Kona and Yachtsman. We had never been to either one!

Kona

What a great experience. Everything was top notch. The food was amazing and the service was outstanding. This is a new must do every trip!

Joe's appetizer was duck pot stickers. He thought they were pretty good. I asked if they tasted like chicken and his reply was, "Naw...just tastes like meat." Hahahaha!

Here's the pot stickers:


Joe's entree was filet. It was most tasty!


Dessert was the Kilauea Torte. The gooey inside was just too much for me to handle-it was mighty good!

and the inside....


My appetizer was the caesar salad. Very good!


My entree was the prime rib. Also very very good!


My dessert was the apple brown betty. I didn't care much for the apples but like the topping and ice cream:


Oh and here's the bread and butter brought out ahead of time. Very good and VERY easy to eat the whole loaf!!!

Yachtsman

Honestly, Yachtsman was a bit of a let down. With such a great time at Kona whichis only 1 table credit, we had high expectations for Yachtsman which is 2 table credits. The meal itself was satisfactory and while our server was very nice, the entire meal experience lasted around 2 1/2-3 hours.

Joe had arranged for a cake to be brought out but our waiter didn't know about it. The waiter was very apologetic which we appreciated but it took over 30 minutes for him to find the cake, another 15 to actually bring it out. We understood he was busy and appreciated his persistance in trying to help so we weren't mad or anything. In the end, they ended up comping the cake which was nice but unexpected.




Bread and butter-good, but not outstanding


Joe's appetizer was the cheese plate. As I said before, we're pretty plain and basic food folks. He was expecting jack, cheddar, american, and maybe swiss cheese. The only "normal" cheese on the plate was mozarella. lol


Entree was the 24oz Porterhouse:


My appetizer was the caesar salad. I must admit I was surprised that it came out like this...I wasn't anticipating needing to cut it up myself! lol


My entree was the filet.


This was the dessert the waiter brought out. Very thoughtful but we were expecting the chocolate-chocolate cake Joe had ordered.


Here's the cake. Like I said earlier, it's a chocolate cake with chocolate frosting. I wish I could rave about it, but the slice(s) I had were very dry and not too chocolatey. It would have been $12.50.

and the inside.....
