Steakhouse 71 is one of the newest dining experiences currently at Disney World. It’s also home to one of the most hyped, highly raved about burgers in all of Disney World.
But does it live up to the hype?
What is Steakhouse 71?
Steakhouse 71 is stylish yet casual, family-friendly steakhouse that offers breakfast, brunch, lunch, and dinner.
Steakhouse 71 is located inside Disney’s Contemporary Resort. The restaurant currently resides in the same spot as the previous occupant, The Wave, just to the right of the hotel check-in area.
Making a Reservation
Prior to becoming Steakhouse 71, getting a reservation at The Wave was by far the easiest restaurant to book across all of Disney World property.
Today, snagging a reservation at Steakhouse 71 has become a little tricky, especially during the holidays and busier months.
Thankfully I was able to grab one two days out at a reasonable time of 1:45 pm on the My Disney Experience app.
The dining room and overall vibe of the restaurant, much like the reimagine hotel lobby and rooms, harkens back to the design style of the 1970s with a hint of Florida flair.
It honestly just had a very casual vibe during brunch, which is what I always prefer.
Brunch at Steakhouse 71 did not disappoint.
Although we didn’t order any of the breakfast foods, we instead opted for some of their lunch options.
We ordered a fruit plate (which was good but not $9 good), the Steak Frites, and the Stack Burger.
I saw on TikTok that the burger was considered one of the best, if not the best on Disney World property, and I can confirm that it’s true.
I was truly shocked how good that burger was. Yes the burger and pork belly were great, but something about the bun just took the burger to the next level.
I used to consider the Lobster “Thermidor” Burger from the Grand Floridian Cafe to be the best in Disney World, but it has now been dethroned by the Stack Burger.
The Steak Frites were flavorful and tender and I really enjoyed the crunchy parmesan-garlic waffle fries with the truffle aioli dipping sauce.
To finish, we got both the creme brûlée and the Steakhouse 71 Chocolate Cake.
The creme brûlée was rich and creamy thanks to its layer of chocolate.
The chocolate cake, although massive and rich, was just okay. But to be honest, I can’t be a fair judge only because I’m not a huge fan of dark chocolate.
Overall, I was pleasantly surprised with our brunch at Steakhouse 71.
From the quick check in process, and attentive service to the surprisingly good lunch options and price, I will definitely need to add this spot to the brunch and lunch rotation going forward!
- Fresh Fruit Plate = $9
- Steak “Frites” = $26
- Stack Burger = $21
- Creme Brûlée = $10
- Steakhouse 71 Chocolate Cake = $11
- Soda = $5 (2x)
Total = $87
They also offer a 10% annual pass discount which I received, but I didn’t factor that into the total price above.
