Take Some Time to Dine with Hanna!

Oh, yes, we have been to Hurricane Hanna’s Waterside Bar and Grill many times before.  Why do we keep going back, you ask?  It’s a great place, of course!

To be more specific, however, the staff is friendly and fantastic.  The food is always delicious!  In fact, it was the first place that Mrs. All in WDW and I visited on our recent stay at Disney’s Yacht Club Resort.

Nestled on the edge of the resort’s 3-acre water wonderland – Stormalong Bay – I’d be remiss if I didn’t open with one of this vacation’s great “finds”.  If you’re a fan of IPA’s, folks, this local brew is a stand-out.  I highly recommend!

Aside from the beer, however, we dined on some of Hanna’s best.  I hope you’re hungry.  These morsels are bound to make your mouth water.  Take a look …

Served on a on a pretzel roll with smoked cheddar and whole-grain mustard, the bar’s Grilled Chicken Sandwich is Mrs. All in WDW’s favorite.  It is shown here without cheese and with apple slaw.  The mustard is on the side.

For me, I chose a new item (since our last visit, at least).  I ordered the Shipwreck Angus Bacon Cheeseburger.  Hey!  How can you turn down a burger that comes well-stocked with bacon, cheddar, and shrimp?!

Also presented with apple slaw, it is made of ground short-rib and brisket.  Draped in a cajun remoulade sauce and topped with a skewer of fried shrimp, it was outstanding!

Of course, if our choices don’t entice you, this bar and grill does offer a pretty full menu.  Think Barbecued Pulled Pork Sandwich, Seafood Roll, Buffalo Sauce Chicken Wrap and much more!  Nonetheless, we highly recommend you give Hanna a visit.  It’s well worth it!

Hello, my friends!  Here’s a question for you to consider … what “lost” gems hold a precious place in your personal annals of WDW history?

All in WDW “Hall of Fame”

“Food” & Garden ’19 – Beef Brisket Burnt Ends and Smoked Pork Belly Slider – THE SMOKEHOUSE: Barbecue and Brews (The American Adventure)

This item debuted last year, where I said … “Boy, does this have a lot going on!  Brisket burnt ends.  Pork belly.  All of that skewered by a tasty piece of sausage.  Wow!  You get an A+ for creativity, Smokehouse!”

Well, I’ll say this … it still has a lot going on.  It’s quite top-heavy, so it’s hard to keep upright as you walk to a table, but who cares?  It is fantastic!  The collection of tastes are phenomenal.  The portion is generous.  This dish was the All in WDW 2019 “Food” & Garden champion!

“Food” & Garden ’19 – Potato Pancakes with House-made Apple Sauce – Bauernmarkt: Farmer’s Market (Germany)

Back to Germany, you can’t argue with two pancakes, now, can you?  Although the ‘cakes, themselves, were very well-prepared, I felt that they needed a healthy pinch of salt … just to balance the sweetness of the apples.  Other than that, I’d recommend this dish.
