Yachtsman or LeCellier?

Hi all!
Staying at the YC on our next trip. This will be our second time at the resort, and we have yet to try Yachtsman! But given the fact WS at Epcot is so close, I'm having a hard time picking steakhouses! We have never been to either and I myself leaning towards LeCellier because of the cheese soup! Any thoughts? Also we will have our son with us who will be 14 months, not sure if that makes a difference or not.

I preferred the steaks and atmosphere at Yachtsman much more than Le Cellier.
The beer cheese soup is good but for me after going to Yachtsman I will most likely never go to Le Cell again. If I am at EPCOT and want steak, the little extra trek to Yachtsman is well worth it.
Also being that you are staying at YC I think that will be nice with the toddler, no travelling at all to Yachtsman

It is really hard to pick, last trip we had lunch on our 1st day at YC at Le Cellier & towards end of trip had dinner at Yachtmans. DH said he preferred Yachtman, but this & Cape May at BC are DHs favorites anyways. I was very impressed with both steakhouses, so it's hard to choose. I had cheese soup & pretzel bread, the mushroom filet with risotto & cream brûlée at Le Cellier. It was really memorial lunch! We'd probably do both again!

Another Yachtsman fan here.....to me, LeCellier is too dark, the tables are too small, and they are too close together. When me & DH last ate there, we had a table for two and it barely fit our meals, appitizer, and drinks without knocking something off the table.

The Yachtsman has a wonderful, quite atmosphere and the tables are larger and well-spaced, and the food is WONDERFUL. It's always nice strolling around the Boardwalk after the meal too.

If all you want is Soup go with LeCellier.

If you want a decent steak and decent service go with Yatchman's.

LeCellier gets lots of hype, but I have no idea why.

As of our last trip, two months ago, we'd pick Le Cellier every time. Fantastic food, wonderful service in a unique, and very enjoyable atmosphere.

Have a great time!

Yachtsman would win by miles in my opinion. I do not like the food at Le Cellier but have had good meals at the Yachtsman - plus you can arrive early and have a drink or app in the Crew's Cup Lounge. Also, not to throw another option at you, but Shula's Steakhouse at Swan and Dolphin is fantastic (no DDP but they take TiW).

Shulas?!? Oh boy, another menu to analyze. Thanks for all the input! Given the close tables and dark atmosphere at LC I think we will go with Yachtsman! With a 14 month old, more space is def needed! Plus staying at YC now for the second timeI'm almost obligated to try their signature restaurant right?!?
Thanks again every one! :-)

Good choice on picking Yachstman! I was very disappointed with the steaks at LC. Plus the cheese soup was BLAH, i just didnt care for it. And to boot, the atmosphere wasnt that great. Way too cramped.

I had lunch at LeCellier Friday, March 1 ( even after I said I wouldn't go back.) I gave it one more try and this time I WILL NEVER GO BACK. REALLY. $44 + tax and $8 tip for fries and a strip steak that was terrible. Burned and too tough to even cut is not acceptable. I sent the first one back and got another which was a little better but still was only able to eat the very center. The entire outside was burned and covered in black charcoal bits and residue from uncleaned grill. The fries were good but NOT worth over $50 for LUNCH. I would definitely try Yatchman 's.

With the reviews of LC, I've never been tempted to go. I was debating Yachtsman and when I asked about it, everyone said Shula's! I looked at the menus of yachtsman and Shula's and they don't even compare so, we have decided on Shula's for our December trip. GL deciding!!!

I think you made a good choice. Yachtsman would be my choice without hesitation. Le Cellier was ok, but nothing I would go back for. I agree with the pp that I also don't see what all the hype is about. Yachtsman has a great atmosphere and the food is amazing, IMO.

Haven't tried LC but the rib eye and filet at the Yachtsman were fantastic. The sides are interesting... The rib eye comes with sweet onion jam, bone marrow, brioche, red wine butter. When I asked the sever about that, she simply said "you want something else, trust me".
I heard the porterhouse was great as well but it's 28oz. They wouldn't give us a smaller cut, it is what is is. And if you eat it all, you don't even get your meal free . They should at least give you a coupon for a free colonic.

Atmosphere/service was great.

If you haven't already made your ADR, I recommend doing Yachtmans on your last night of your trip. We always stay at BC/YC, and Yachtsmans is always our last night's dinner. Makes it easy and relaxing -- we always start packing up as we are getting ready to go to dinner, and then we finish up afterwards. So easy to be so close. But no matter which night you choose, I do think that you made the right choice of restaurant given all the practical considerations (we think the food is great at both places, but we'll only be doing Yachtsmans on our upcoming trip!).

Enjoy~~~
