I guess now I know why you were too full. Anyway, it all looked quite delicious!

Oh, and thanks again for surprising me with the live updates from Disneyland. I love nice surprises like that.
It could very well have been that night! I know I was tipsy and I was definitely tipsy that night!! LOL!

It sure was good! I definitely recommend it if you are there at the same time of it again!

Liberty Tree Tavern

Lunch at Liberty Tree Tavern was interesting..

We weren't real hungry since we had a snack a few hours earlier and DH's stomach still wasn't feeling well.

We still arrived early though as I didn't want to skip it completely.

Pics of the waiting area.




One of the dining areas..





Cheese Sticks, yes just the Mozzarella ones but I love any Deep Fried Cheese so I still got them!


We then shared a BLT sandwich




The sandwich was served on a thick Whole Grain bread. Really TO much bread for the sandwich. I think a thinner bread would be much better.
Also the B part of the sandwich was really a Pork Belly type meat and it had too much of the fatty part so I ate most of it while DH had a few fries and just a few bites of the sandwich.

And of course... the Ooey Goey Toffee Cake


I tried.. I didn't succeed...


It was delicious but way too rich!!

LTT one of my favorites for the dessert!! I didn't know they had a BLT... I do like BLTs and I like that thick bread since it looks like the bread for my past favorite sandwich the tri-corner that they took off their menu. I'm still annoyed that they changed the fried cheese app and only serve the cheese logs.

My wife and I are pouring, page by page, over the live review thread and found you through there.

I can't wait to see the rest!

Really enjoying your TR. We are going in October and planning to have lunch at LTT. I am anxious to share the toffee cake with DH. I KNOW I will be unable to eat it by myself. Subbing

Hi Paula! I know you are working a TON right now! (like what 10 days in a row??) Hoping you have some free time to update OR just come back down to the OC and we'll play at D-land again!

Take care!

I still wonder why they got rid of the cheese nuggets, I never got to try any but I'm sure I would like them!

No way I could finish that dessert! Maybe a family of 4!

Yachtsman Steakhouse

Yachtsman Review

I had booked Yachtsman as a dinner choice as we had an ok meal in '09 but it wasn't top on our list of signature meals. It however gets good reviews on here so I thought we would give it another try.

Here is the menu.


That is readable right?!?! Sorry about that!

Since we were at a steakhouse we thought we would get a bottle of Red wine to go with out meal. I had Hunter check out the wine list and he located on of our favorite wines...


Fresh rolls and the famous Onion Pull-apart bread.


And of course the roasted garlic and butter with sea salt...


We decided to start with the Charcuterie Appetizer.


The Charcuterie was good. I don't remember anything truly special about it either good or bad.

And there is our Wine!


For our meal we decided to share the Ribeye but I subbed out the original side for the Truffle Fries. We also chose a couple of side.

We hadn't intended for them to split the meal for us but it came out on two plates.

This was my plate.


This was my Husbands.

Kind of sad looking isn't it?!?

My husband has a seafood allergy and we are careful about cross-contamination. They informed us after we placed the order that the Truffle Fries share oil with seafood. We didn't see any fried seafood on the menu but we took their word for it. He chose to have a baked potato in place of the truffle fries. However, they also didn't include the salad on his plate which made it look really empty and boring!

We also had an issue with how they cut the Ribeye for the share. They had cut in lengthwise instead of the short way across meaning I had the top of the steak and Hunter had the bottom. His piece had the fat layer and lots of flavor. However not much meat! Mine had all the meat but not as much flavor. It was just a really strange split of the steak. I didn't eat all my steak and he didn't get enough. However because we weren’t sure if anything contaminating had touched my half I couldn't share it with Hunter.

The missing salad from Hunters plate really didn't have much flavor to it so it wasn't much to be missed except some color on the plate. I enjoyed my truffle fries immensely but I was sad that I couldn't share them with Hunter as he loves them as well!

Truffle Mac' N Cheese


Hunter was though able to Indulge in the Mac N cheese. Sadly it really needed more cheese. It was truffle flavored pasta.

Corn! With BACON!

The corn was my choice of side. I love corn and mixed with Bacon makes it even better! The corn was delicious!

Us!


I asked if I could keep a copy of the menu and they tied it up nice and pretty for me!

However I seem to have forgotten the menu somewhere!

And Dessert!


When we had been to Yachtsman in '09 the dessert had been the best part of the meal. It appeared though as they may have a different Pastry Chef as the desserts just didn't hold as much appeal. I did select the caramel, chocolate pretzel one though as it seemed the most appealing. The dessert was good but nothing truly spectacular.

Overall our meal at Yachtsman was ok but except for the yummy rolls at the beginning of the meal I'm not sure we would return.
