    Going to Disney in December and we made reservations for the Clam Bake at Disney's Beach Club. Just want to know everyone's thought??? :confused3

    Every time we book a place to eat in Disney this is where I come to find out if DH, DD and myself will enjoy it.

    Thanks :goodvibes

    Dh and I love this place and make sure to go on every trip, we are headed back there next month. Now I do not do the clam and mussels but I eat just about every thing else, the food is always very good. They no longer serve lobster or crab legs for an extra price. Here is what I remember them having on the buffet:

    Steamed little necks and mussels in taragon herb butter or plain drawn butter
    Clam Chowder
    Tomato Bisque
    Corn on the Cob
    Boiled red skin potatoes
    Corn bread
    Assorted breads and rolls
    Salmon in Feb and fried talapia in April
    Mini hot dogs
    Chicken fingers
    French Fries
    Carved beef
    Mac and Cheese
    BBQ ribs
    Roasted Chicken pieces
    Sausage with peppers and onions
    Mashed garlic potatoes
    Beef with mushrooms in a rich brown sauce
    Fresh String beans with carrots
    Broccolini
    Baked ziti
    Peel and eat shrimp
    Caesar salad
    Regular salad with all the fixings
    Marinated mushrooms
    Tomato Salad
    Cuke salad
    Potato Salad
    Cole Slaw
    Ambrosia
    Fresh fruit, many different types

    DESSERT
    Oreo Bon Bons, flan, mini cheesecakes, german chocolate cake, tollhouse cookies, peanut butter and chocolate brownies, blondies, sugar cookies, some type of strawberry jello with whipped cream concoction, apple crisp and key lime tarts

    WOW!!! The menu did not list all that stuff, see this is why I ask all the food questions here. DH always wants me to check the DIS board to see what people think. Thanks

    We ate here in May for the first time and we all LOVED it. We booked it for our trip in November. It will be a MUST for all trips in the future. For DS8 and myself we loved the clams but DS11 didn't but he loved everything else on the buffet. Would definitely recommend it.

    DH and I went a few years ago and did not care for it much. It sounds much better now and I'm rethinking going there again .
    I will say I loved the atmosphere!!!
    Also I think our expectations were too high. My DH is from Maine and his expectations of what would be there etc.... were not very realistic for Fla.

    We also love the Clambake. My husband is not a big seafood fan either but he loves the ribs and the cornbread! It's definitely a favorite of ours!

    I am from Boston, just a short drive to Gloucester, Essex and Ipswich...while that is the best seafood you can get we still enjoy this place! DH actually prefers the clams here than in Boston, he is not a fan of the "pisser" clams

    We ate there in August and really did not like it. I thought for sure I would love it but it was all just so-so to me. I won't be going back.

    Have eaten there a number of times and really enjoyed our meals. There was enough choices for everyone in our party (adults and kids).

    They are steamed in tarragon garlic herb butter or steamed plain with drawn butter on the side. DH is from NJ/PA and he likes littlenecks the best! He can eat a bushel of them
