On my last trip to Walt Disney World my family decided they wanted to eat at Le Cellier for lunch. Currently, Le Cellier is 1 table service for lunch but in January even the lunch menu will be bumped up to 2 Dining Credits. So this would be one of the last times we would eat there. I am not a known fan of Le Cellier for two reasons: 1. last time I ate there I was very very sick and honestly miserable and 2. I am not a huge steak fan. So can a person really eat there and not order a steak and still have a nice meal? Well the answer is Yes, you can!! The lunch menu has several options, it looks pretty much like the dinner menu only not as many fish selections I noticed. They also offer the Chefs pick menu and even on the dining plan you can enjoy an appetizer, entree and dessert. I opted to go with that menu.
For the started I had the Spicy Chicken and Chipotle Sausage with roasted corn polenta and sweet onion jam. Wow! It was amazing and big enough it really could have been a meal of its own. The chicken sausage is so good, but beware that it is spicy but not so hot it’ll burn your mouth. The roasted corn polenta was so creamy with just enough sweetness from the corn to balance out the flavors from the spicy sausage. I’m telling ya, skip the soup next time and give this a try! Yum!
For my entree I picked the Le Cellier House Burger. I know what you are thinking, what no steak?! But if you are not a steak lover, why choose one just because you are at a steak house. It is not a rule. The burger was topped with roasted mushrooms, smokey bacon, maple barbecue, cheddar cheese, crispy onions, and served with a side of french fries. They will cook your burger to order and I ordered mine well done and it was perfect. The burger is huge, I could barely put down half of it after the appetizer. I offered up samples to other people at my table and everyone enjoyed it. The burger is a winner in my book!
Of course even with the options you still get to enjoy the wonderful bread variety they serve you and still pick a dessert. Even if you don’t order a steak , I promise you will walk away from here full. When planning our Disney vacations it isn’t all about me and where I want to eat, so I was more than happy to go back to Le Cellier. I just don’t feel like I have to order a steak because that is what they are known for and I hope you don’t feel that way either. The other menu options are just as flavorful and satisfying! So if you don’t love love love steak, next time you visit Le Cellier branch out!
