Now that the weather is heating up in Southern California, so is the kitchen at Steakhouse 55, which is located at the Disneyland Hotel. One of our favorite high-end dining locations at the Disneyland Resort, we visit Steakhouse 55 several times each year, and also frequent their lounge/bar as well, which is easily accessible to all guests.
According to the Disney Parks Blog, Steakhouse 55 is sporting new eats, including a Fresh Pasta Tagliatelle appetizer, Seared Carpaccio of Beef, and a Moroccan-spiced King Salmon entree that sounds especially tasty!
If you’ve never been to Steakhouse 55, this summer is the perfect time to try it! The restaurant is located in the Disneyland Hotel, next to Goofy’s Kitchen, just s short walk from the pool area and Trader Sam’s Enchanted Tiki Bar. While certainly open to serving families, Steakhouse 55 is definite an adult venue with a quiet, upscale interior with dim, romantic ambiance. We find the restaurant perfect for special occasions and date nights at the Disneyland Resort. Dress can be casual, but we recommend at least business casual or semi-formal; T-shirts and shorts may stick out a bit as awkward, although the Disney staff certainly won’t hold it against you.
As stated before, we frequent the bar and lounge at Steakhouse 55; there is usually no problem finding a seat and the staff is always very attentive and friendly. While in close proximity to Goofy’s Kitchen, the bar/lounge is quiet usually and is a perfect social spot for adults, especially later in the evening. It is often much less crowded that other bars nearby, and we consider it somewhat of a “hidden gem” when trying to get away from the crazy hustle and bustle of Downtown Disney or even Trader Sam’s.
Give Steakhouse 55 a try this summer – and enjoy some fine dining and tasty cocktails! You’ll be glad you did!
