Captain's Grille Allergy-Friendly Dinner Menu - Disney's Yacht Club Resort

Yesterday, I stopped by the Captain's Grille at Disney's Yacht Club Resort to see their new allergy-friendly menus, which list options for people with gluten/wheat, milk, egg, soy, peanut/tree nut, and fish/shellfish allergies.

The Captain's Grille is a table service restaurant that is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner.  You can view their allergy-friendly menus for breakfast and lunch in my breakfast and lunch reviews.

The Captain's Grille allergy-friendly dinner menu lists the following gluten free appetizers:

  • Wedged romaine salad with garlic-peppercorn cream, bacon lardons, confit tomatoes, and blue cheese
  • Seared scallops with cauliflower puree, golden raisins, and tree nut vinaigrette

Gluten free entrees:

  • Market fish with seasonal accompaniments
  • Snow crab legs with new potatoes and corn on the cob
  • New York strip with creme fraiche whipped potatoes, roasted mushrooms, oven-cured tomatoes, and cabernet reduction 
  • Cabernet-braised short rib with corn risotto, pan jus reduction, and corn cream
  • Rosemary-brined pork tenderloin with braised pork belly, white bean puree, cherry gastrique, ham jus, and braised brussel sprouts
  • Pan-seared chicken with brown butter potatoes, vegetables, lemon beurre blanc, and olives

Gluten free desserts:
  • Angel food cake - berry compote and shortbread croutons with white chocolate panna cotta (a no sugar added dessert)
  • House-made chocolate, strawberry, and vanilla gelato

The allergy-friendly kids' dinner menu lists the following gluten free options:

  • Appetizers - fruit cup
  • Mickey Check Meals - served with choice of small lowfat milk or small Dasani water, and a frozen yogurt and berry push-pop for dessert
    • Baked fish served with brown rice, corn, carrots, and green beans
    • Grilled chicken strips served with brown rice, corn, carrots, and green beans
    • Grilled shrimp skewer served with brown rice, corn, carrots, and green beans
  • Grilled Beef Kabobs
  • French fries
  • Desserts - ice cream sundae, frozen yogurt & berry push-pop

If you see something on the menu that you would like to try, but it is not listed as a gluten/wheat friendly option, be sure to talk to a chef, because they might be able to modify the dish for you to make it gluten free.

I hope to dine at the Captain's Grille for dinner soon, because the cabernet-braised short rib sounds amazing, and there are several other gluten free entrees that I would love to try.  Update - you can read my dinner review of the Captain's Grille here.
