It’s time to sail over to Disney’s Yacht Club Resort for lunch a la Captain’s Grill. Here’s some photographs for what became one of the best lunches we’ve had at Disney World (food wise).
As much as I begged to be seated in the miniature dining room – they refused. Stating I was much, much to large to fit on the tiny chairs.
Nautical club flags can be found adorning chairs, and the walls of Captain’s Grill
SERVERS RISKY CLAIM ALERT: Captain’s Grill has better Fish and Chips than the Rose & Crown at Epcot. Okay, sir. Let’s do this.
Models ships. Always make classy decor. I should really get one. I say get instead of build – I’m sure if I built a model ship, it would look more like a tent.
Appetizers are here – Wasabi fries. Deep fried, spicy, and crisp – arguable the best french fry concoction at Walt Disney World
Chef Ron’s specialty – fried Florida rock shrimp, coleslaw, and a mayo-heavy duo of dips. Great seasoning, refreshing slaw. They did not last long.
Other crab cakes can take a lesson. The Captain’s Grill version is flawless. Very little filler here, which lets that beautiful crab meat to really shine. The salad is color, and nothing more. It does have a few scattered pieces of avocado, which add a silky, rich, and buttery kick to the cake.
Teagan says EAT! The child wondering why she is not allowed to eat shellfish yet. We learned, after stealing one from my side plate, that Teagan enjoys wasabi fries.
So, this is it, huh? Better than the Rose & Crown. *Takes Bite* Hmm. 1-0 Captains Grill. Hands down the best fish and chips on Disney property. And a portion large enough to feed 5. Or me.
Sam Adams Boston Lager with your fish and chips? Obviously. Is there a better pairing than the original Sam Adams brew and deep-fried fish? Nope, sure isn’t. The Boson Lager is malty, with hops and a slight sweet finish. A perfect balance, and likely the best beer brewed in the United States.
Ignore the side dish – check out the lobster sliders. They were jammed with meat, and a tangy, buttery dressing. I don’t use the word often, but these were divine.
Here’s your fish, sweetheart. In yellow cracker form. Enjoy. The Goldfish crackers lasted about 4 minutes. Teagan enjoyed Captain’s Grill, only whining once when Dad refused to give up more wasabi fries. She also noted the laminated tables make an interesting noise when banged on, but the crayon selection for the child’s menu is sub-par at best. Is it too much to ask to get a blue Crayola in a nautical themed restaurant? Oh, and Mom’s Orzo salad was rockin’.
