[QUOTE=fjs08;1058555]>>his used to be home to an awesome steakouse, Steerman’s Quarters…loved that place!<,
I seem to remember 2 restaurants there???
One a steak and the other a seafood restaurant??
Or am I thinking of another “boat” type restaurant.
Used to go to one in San Diego literally decades ago.
I happen to have a 1982 Birnbaum’s WDW guide (boy is it thin!).
[B]Steerman’s Quarters[/B]: This ornate Main Deck salon, full of heavy red upholstery and turned mahogany spindles and paneling, is named for the steering gear that would have occupied this area in one of the original stern wheelers. Meat is the big deal-cold prime ribs with minced horseradish, ground steak in puff pastry, strip steak, beef tenderloin-though oysters on the half shell and shrimp cocktail are available, along with specialty crepes stuffed with seafood in a white wine sauce, or diced chicken in Mornay sauce. At dinner prime ribs and a half dozen grilled meats are orderable. While you’re waiting for your food, you can sit by a big glass window that seems only inches away from the paddle wheel’s gleaming sprays of water. No reservations are accepted, give your name to the hostess and wait in the Promenade Lounge or the Baton Rouge Lounge. L, D.
Back then they divided the Empress Lilly into 3 restaurants; The Fisherman’s Deck, The Empress Room, and The Steerman’s Quarters, and two bars; Baton Rouge Lounge and Promenade Lounge.
It looks like Steerman’s was the “steakhouse” while Fisherman’s Deck was the seafood spot. It looks like Empress Room was the upscale venue here.
