I am sorry to hear you were disappointed in the Yachtsman ... it was easily our favorite meal of the trip. Funny though, we didn't find it loud at all (Flying Fish had the honor of our loudest signature) so it must just depend on the make up of the diners.

DH had the same steak as you and also didn't completely love the sauce but he liked the steak itself so much that it didn't matter.

Good for you on trying the escargot! I don't think I can get over the "mind over matter" part!

It is funny how different people have different experiences. I guess it's all just when you go and what your expectations are.

Subbing in!

I really want to try that boar appetizer at Jiko, it seems as though most people really love it! I must say I'm really jealous of all your sub places where you live - I can't find a good sandwich place that I really love here in Colorado (compared to where I grew up in Pennsylvania).

And I'm quite in awe of your decision to try escargot! I'm definitely not that brave. Dogfish is such a cool company. We watch Brew Masters every once in a while and it's neat to see what specialty beers they come up with.

The pumpkin ale that's out now is DH's favorite!

Thanks for reading!

Great reviews so far! And good job on trying the escargot - when DH and I were on a cruise he tried it, and I had a bite - like you, the idea repulsed me but I found that it actually tasted pretty good! It still seemed weird though.

Congratulations on your 1 year anniversary and enjoying your reviews!

Would definitely like to take a sans-kids trip at some point and hit up the signatures.

We haven't been to Jiko but it looks like something we would like.

Next trip the only signature we are doing is Cali Grille

Thanks! And, yes, it seemed weird to me, too.

The signatures are one of our favorite parts of D-World. Jiko is definitely one of my must-dos.

Congrats on getting married! Your reviews are great so far. I especially liked the Yachtsman as we were thinking of adding that to our list of restaurants to try next trip. My DH complained last time we went to Disney that he didnt get a steak the whole trip The peppercorn steak looks fantastic and you have made me want to go there even more.

Hello, I'm a little late, but joining in now!

I totally agree with you DH about the Wild Boar App at Jiko - it's amazing!!!!

Yachtsman looks pretty good...I will be trying it for the first time in about a month. Sorry it wasn't stellar for you..seems to get mixed reviews.

Thank you! And thanks for reading. I am definitely glad we ate at Yachtsman this time. I hope to go back again in the future. My DH and your DH sound like two peas in a pod!

I agree with you that Yachtsman seems to get mixed reviews. I try to remember that everyone has different tastes, but it is hard to overlook what people say about a particular restaurant or dish. I hope you enjoy it! We definitely are glad we went and hope to return someday.

Subbing!! Congrats on your anniversary, we are at almost 3 years and going to The World to celebrate in November. Love all of you reviews so far, we love Jiko and have had Michelle as a server twice, once on our honeymoon and last Christmas with extended family, she was wonderful both times. Like you said attentive with out being to pesky.

Haven't been back to Yachtsman for a while and am always on the fence about going back..

Can't wait to read more reviews!!
