Shula's serves "Prime" grade meat. Yachtsman advertises one single cut of steak that is Prime. The rest is "Choice". All the steaks at Le Cellier are "Choice". Prime is as good as it gets (though Shula's claims that their "Shula's Cut" is a "higher grade of Prime" but I haven't noticed any difference.) So if you are looking for the best quality meat, there can be no debate. It is at Shula's. Whether you will like Yachtsman just as much can only be determined by you. But when in doubt, a good rule of thumb is to judge a steakhouse by the quality of meat realizing that you pay more for Prime. That said, Yachtsman is every bit as expensive as Shula's, though they do throw in the sides for the price of their meals if that matters. At Shula's, sides are all ordered a la carte.

Shula's by a wide margin. Besides using higher quality meat, I've found them to be more consistent with their preparation as well.

Prime indeed!

Thanks for the great explanation and helping us to understand the "Prime" distinction! It's worth every penny to go to Shula's. We have gone 3 years in a row and look forward to going again this summer. We have 3 young boys and the service has always been open/kind to them. Although the sides are a la carte like at typical great steakhouses, they are good portions. We enjoy the crab mac and cheese, caesar salad, and garlic mashed potatoes to go with our awesome filets!

After reading this I am getting nervous. I have booked our anniversary dinner at Nacoossee. I never even heard of Shula's until this thread

Agree 100% with good steaks at Coral Reef. One of the best I've had in Disney and better than many of the more expensive places.

I didn't think my steak at Yachtsman was any better than what I had at BOG but my son thought it was the best he'd had (except what I cook on the grill at home). Never had Shula's but have heard good things. If you are on the dining plan Shula's isn't included -- not a Disney restaurant -- so you'll pay out of pocket at somewhere around $100 a person after you add in sides, drinks and tip (lobster alone is $130).

Thank you everyone for the Great reviews! As much as I would love to try Shula's; we are on the Dining plan & Shula's doesn't accept it .
