Ale & Compass Restaurant at Disney’s Yacht Club Resort

I did a full review of Disney’s Yacht Club Resort on the last “magical” Monday, and I’m back today with details on the relatively new Ale & Compass Restaurant.

Yacht Club

Ale & Compass Restaurant features New England comfort food and classic seafood dishes in a coastal-inspired restaurant. The decor is lovely and charming, with a modern take on a cozy lighthouse. I loved it the minute I stepped inside.

I dined at Ale & Compass for lunch had had a wonderful meal. The Parker House rolls and spreads are a must for a starter.

I ordered the Lobster Roll and thoroughly enjoyed it. The house chips were a wonderful side. Since I was with a group, I got to try a bite of a few other things. Highlights were the Ale & Compass Salad, Bacon and Vermont Cheddar Burger and Grilled Cheese with Tomato Soup. Everyone was pleased with their meal!

Ale & Compass serves three meals a day!

Start the day with hearty breakfast dishes—including one-of-a-kind homemade hash, omelets, cornbread waffles, salted caramel-apple French toast or a protein bowl. Or, enjoy lighter fare, like fruit smoothies or a seasonal fruit plate with yogurt and granola.

Sail in for delicious lunch options, including Maine lobster rolls, fish & chips, sandwiches, signature burgers and salads.

Choose from a variety of dinner entrees to delight nearly every taste! Indulge in sumptuous seafood, like sustainable catch of the day, New England seafood pot pie or a coastal clambake. Heartier selections include cabernet-braised short ribs, slow-roasted barbeque pork chop, 10-oz New York angus strip and pappardelle pasta.

At lunch and dinner, satisfy your sweet tooth with decadent desserts, like lemon “curd” meringue pie, apple pie and 12-layer chocolate cake.

In addition to the restaurant, the Ale & Compass lounge is a MUST. I absolutely loved the cozy decor and we ended every night here on our trip. It was a much needed, wonderful addition to the Yacht Club Resort!

If you go…

  • Ale & Compass is one credit on the Disney Dining Plan.
  • Reservations are needed in advance, but not necessarily 6 months out. This is a great one to snap up for a last minute trip.
  • I always send my Yacht and Beach Club clients here, but wouldn’t trek across property to dine at Ale & Compass. It’s wonderful, but many places are.

Speaking of Yacht Club and Ale & Compass, I just booked four rooms here yesterday for clients on an August stay. The pricing was great with the summer discount and there is still plenty of availability for dining. I know August is HOT in Disney, but it’s nothing to fear with the amazing Stormalong Bay pool that is actually zoned as a water park!
