Dolphin at Walt Disney World

Entree range

$26-$130 (for the Australian lobster tail). Sides not included in entree cost.


This is part of the chain owned by former Miami Dolphins football coach Don Shula. It's classier than it is kitschy, though printing the menu on the side of a football and placing it on a kickoff tee in the center of the table is a bit much. They could also do without the rehearsed spiel from the waiters, who sound completely bored as they present raw examples of the beef selections and a live lobster at each table. But if you've got deep pockets and you're in the mood for red meat, Shula's fits the bill.

Setting and Atmosphere

Clubby and masculine with dark woods and even darker lighting. Large, gilt-framed black-and-white photographs of football players in action offer the only decoration. A favorite of conventioneers on expense accounts (although, based on the lower reader-survey scores, we think some guests are balking at the platinum-card prices and the uninspired service).

House Specialties

In a word, meat - really expensive but very high-quality meat. Only certified Angus beef is served: filet mignon, porterhouse (including a 48-ounce cut), and prime rib.

Other Recommendations

The steak-tartare appetizer is special, and the split-lobster cocktail appetizer is excellent.
