Best Sit Down Steak Restaurant for Families With Kids

Hello everyone..

We are visiting Disneyworld in December this year for Christmas / New Years. Our Anniversary is on January 1 so we are looking for ideas for a great sit down steak meal. I have read conflicting information on Yachtman's. We have the Dining Plan as well so $$ isn't really much of an influencing factor although we do understand that Yachtman's does take 2 Credits.

Anyone have advise? We don't do fish or seafood so that kind of limits our options as well. Hubby really doesn't want to be smelling fish / seafood while we are eating and I really feel the same.

We do have 3 kids going with us as well so that is a little bit of an influence.

My family LOVES Le Cellier! Haven't had a bad meal yet!!! It also takes 2 TS credits on the DDP, but it's worth it!

We are trying Yachtsman on our next trip though. Menu looks great!

Our boys are ages 5, 12 and 13 and we really enjoy both Le Cellier and Yachtsman. It's difficult to select a favorite between the two - we enjoy the food and atmosphere at both. And the CMs have been great with our kids at both locations.

Generally, when we need to choose between the two, it's a question of timing and park plans. If we want to be in the park for Illuminations and we're booking our trip far enough in advance to get a 7pm ADR, we go with Le Cellier. If we don't need to be in the park for Illuminations and/or we're planning the trip way past the 180 day mark, we'll go with Yachtman.

But for an anniversary dinner with kids, I'd probably choose Yachtsman just for the more relaxed atmosphere and pace. We like to stop in the Crews Cup for appetizers before dinner.

Have a great trip, and Happy Anniversary!

We didn't care for Le Cellier, but loved Yachtsman . The filet was so tender you could cut it with a butter knife. We also liked the atmosphere as it was relaxed and kind of quiet. We were seated close to a window which had a beautiful view of SAB at night. We can't wait to go back during our YC stay next summer. Have a great anniversary trip .

LeCellier is a pretty hard ressie to get, especially during the busiest time of year. The Yachtsman has excellent food and atmosphere.

We ate at YSH this past week and both had the ribeye. Both steaks were very good.

If you want a more affordablle

steak dinner with other options that are all good, try Captains Grille or Olivia's at the Old Key West resort. We are at Captains Grille last week and my wife thought the strip was very good and at $26.99 a bargain compared to other places
