Dining Recon: Breakfast at Captain’s Grille

Good morning, my friends!  Is it time for some bacon and eggs?  Some coffee, at least?

When it comes to breakfast, the Yacht Club’s Captain’s Grille is best known for its “all-you-care-to-enjoy” breakfast buffet.  Just ask Dennis Conroy of the WDW Main Street Podcast.  He, and his family, are big fans!




Well, on our last visit to The World, we decided to tackle the Captain’s morning “feast”.  Then, we got distracted … by the skipper’s à la carte menu!  Eggs Benedict, Citrus-scented French Toast, Lemon-Ricotta Hotcakes.  How could we not?


Oh, the breakfast buffet looked grand, mind you.  Filled with fruit, yogurt, pastries, smoked salmon, bread pudding, oatmeal, cold cereals, bacon, sausage, hash browns, scrambled eggs and frittatas, it appeared to be delicious.

Mrs. All in WDW and I, however, were enticed by the prospect of dining in a more “deluxe” fashion.  Plus, with a long day in front of us, we didn’t want to fill ourselves up to the brim!  We just had to try their Lobster Omelet!


Let me tell you folks, made with butter-poached lobster, asparagus, and chive cream, this was no ordinary omelet.  Beautiful in presentation and delightful in taste, it delivered just what we needed for breakfast … without making us feel over-stuffed.

Unlike some venues in Walt Disney World, the Captain’s Grille doesn’t often get fully-booked with ADRs.  So, if you’re looking for an impromptu morning meal, it may just be your destination.  Whether the buffet or a somewhat lighter bite, the skipper wouldn’t steer you wrong!

  1. After reading such a positive review I think my husband and I will try the breakfast at Captain’s Grille when we visit WDW next month. It’s also nice to know that we may not have to make an ADR. Again, thank-you for the great information.
