Steakhouse 71 has officially opened at Disney’s Contemporary Resort. This new restaurant has replaced The Wave, which closed earlier this year to reinvent itself as this new dining experience.
We already visited Steakhouse 71 yesterday for lunch and today for breakfast and now we consult the dinner service again.
We took a first look at the new restaurant when we went to lunch yesterday and the atmosphere is the same for dinner.
Located on the first floor of the resort, you will be transported back in time as you stroll down the hallways and see photos of Disney World’s past …
… and inside, the new style of decoration is what Disney calls “elegant but comfortable ” with subtle gestures towards Florida heritage and design elements inspired by the 70s.
We took you with us for one Full look at the new restaurant now, so be sure to check it out if you want to see more.

Dinner at Steakhouse 71 has a variety of options to choose from quite a few dishes that were included on the lunch menu, in addition to some novelties. And, everything is served (and ordered) a la carte.
Among eight different options a snacks, Fans of The Wave’s famous Bacon and Eggs will be delighted to know it’s on the snack menu at Steakhouse 71.
For dinner, we tried the Crab Cakes which are made with Old Bay Rémoulade, Corn Hash and Homemade Saltine Crackers for $ 15
Our server has shared with us that this appetizer is inspired by Walt Disney’s love for crab salad and salad dressings and that all crackers are homemade.

And, if you’re looking for something non-alcoholic, we’ve also ordered the EARidescent Sip-a-bration (which, yes, we’ve achieved before, but it’s so much fun!). This is a Minute Maid lemonade cup served in a souvenir glass of the 50th celebration with a brilliant Disney character on the side. At Steakhouse 71, the character is Mickey and not just meant to be the decoration of your glass.
Put it in the drink and mix everything to create a pink lemonade with strawberry fruit flavor.
