Yachtsman for us! The food and the service are just great.

LeCellier is just too crowed and noisy. The tables are crammed together.

You can't go wrong with either.

Yachtsman is quieter and the steaks are better, but its a little more stuffy.

I don't like stuffy.

I agree that the tables are too close together at Le Cellier.

While the food is good at Lc, I get claustrophic in there. It is in a cellar, no windows and the tables are so close together that the servers thought our party of 2 and the people next to us were together. She asked me what I wanted and then asked the women at the table next to us. (You know girls first). We had to tell her we were not together. YSh is great food and atmosphere. I don't get a stuffy feel. I never change from park clothes, tshirt and capris. I have never felt underdressed!

my cousins are disney people and I asked them about Le Cellier as well cause we tried to go there a few years ago and couldnt get in so we are going back and it was still one of our choices. They went there every trip there 2nd last trip they said it wasnt that great maybe it was just a bad day in there they had just recently gone back and went there again and said it was not that great again and told me they would never go back. So we have taken it off our list. We have eatin at Shula's steakhouse it was totally AMAZING but it is not covered on the DP and it is $$$$ but it was awesome would love to go back there but not until it is covered under the DP.....

They're about the same price, with vastly different atmospheres. Le Cellier is signature pricing without the signature atmosphere. For some, this is a negative, for others, it's a benefit.

OH and I had terribly rude, rushed service at Yachtsman and thus are hesitant to go back, but looking at others' reviews, our experience doesn't seem to be the norm. We have always had great service at Le Cellier.

For me personally, the food is the same quality and the same cost, and going to LC means I don't have to leave the park or worry about a dress code. So I prefer LC.

Folks who want the more sedate atmosphere that is typical of a signature (and that, let's face it, you're paying for at LC but not getting) will prefer Yachtsman.

We loooove Yachtsmen. But it is a more sedate, leisurely atmosphere than LC. We haven't been to LC in years, but are trying it again in April. We enjoyed the food there (back in the day) but the atmosphere was definitely more crowded, theme-park restaurant than YC. Depends, I think, on the atmosphere you are looking for, and how long your boys will want to sit still for dinner.

(We took my nephews to YC from the time they were small, but spent lots of time taking them out to run around between courses!)

Last 2 dinners at Yachtsman have been most disappointing....
Le Cellier gets my vote!

I didn't think Le Cellier was anything special, but Yachtsman was amazing and we will definitely go back.

Done both, would not do either ever again. Overrated, not very good for the price even on ddp. If you are firm on the two, le cell because yachtsman to me is not child friendly even if disney. If you were open to othersnthen i think the best steak on property is caligrill AND it is very kid friendly. if cali is closed during your trip, flying fish or artist point are decent and more friendly for kids.

If you don't mind leaving the park, definitely Yachtman's, by FAR.

Even though Yachtsman's is outside the park...it is a very short boat ride away from the International Gateway.

Restaurant.com

[QUOTE=dopeynme;47202703]Sounds like its a matter of personal preference! DH and my vote Shula's number 1, Yachtsman a very close number 2, and LeCellier a very distant third.......I don't know if Shula's is on the dining plan. When we went we found restaurant.com certificates, $3.00 for a $20.00 certificate![/QUOTE

Did you use the restauarant.com certificates at Shula's in WDW?
Are they good for all Shula's locations?
