    Shula vs Yachtsmans

    I have 2 ADR's for about the same time on a Friday coming up (I"ll cancel one). One for Shula's Staeakhouse and the other for Yachtsmans. I'm not part of any dinning plan.

    Anyone been to both, if so which do you prefer and why? I'm not concerened with cost, just looking for the better expereince & meal.

    Thanks

    Re: Shula vs Yachtsmans

    I have been to both and i have to say that if your wiling to pay a little extra money shula's definitly is a better quality but it also is a chain restaurant that you could eat at in other places. Yachtsman is almost just as good but i think it provides a better overall experience. The service is better and the enviroment is just much more friendlier. So i guess if i had to pick one id say yachtsman.

    I've been to both a number of times and would pick Shula's hands down. The Shula's menu is much more extensive, because it hasn't been whittled down due to the dining plan. The food at both is great, but the variety and size of the portions is what puts Shula's over the top for me.

    Shula's is the better restaurant. But there's something about the Yachtsman's atmosphere I like better. I just fee more Disney, know what I mean?

    I found out there's a Shula's nearby here in Baltimore. I may stick to going to Shula's here for special occasions, and do Yachtsman at WDW!

    Re: Shula vs Yachtsmans

    I have not been to either, but I'd pick Yachtsman. A common complaint about Shula's is the lighting, it's very dim in there. Also, the steaks at Shula's are huge. I just can't eat that much! It's also an a la carte menu, so you'd be paying for large sides. If you're going with just one other person, hope you can agree on what side to get. I'd try Shula's once, but I have Yachtsman higher on my list.

    Re: Shula vs Yachtsmans

    I had the best steak of my life at Shula's in Baltimore. I have been to the WDW location and it enjoyed it both times.

    Shula's is on the level with Morton's, Ruth Chris, etc.

    We went to both this past may...Here is our review:

    Yachtsman, the staff went out of their way to treat us great...I had a Disneyflorist delivery brought to Jessica during the meal, and they were awesome...The steaks were fabulous, and the appetizers, the pan seared scallops were out of this world!! Worth every penny of the $175 we spent..

    At Shulas, we got in with no reservations on a Saturday. Very plush inside, the staff was great...The food was also out of this world, and worth the $200.

    Bottom line, DO BOTH if you can They are both great restaurants!! Worth the money to dine there.....
