Steakhouse 55 was originally a restaurant called Granville's Steakhouse. As you may or may not know, the Disneyland hotel was not originally owned by Disney. Walt brokered a deal with his friend Jack Wrather to build the hotel. Jack added the Granville Steakhouse and named it after his wife. She was a child star by the name of Bonita Granville. The hotel wasn't purchased by the Disney Corp until 4 years after Jack's death in 1988. The name of the restaurant was changed and the restaurant refurbished and re-opened in 2006.
But enough about the history of the place, I know you want to know how the food was right?
First, you are served some amazing bread! The bit of leftover bread is in the top corner. We ordered the berry Pina Coladas and they were very good!
For dinner, I ordered the Filet Mignon $32 and Mr. Diva ordered the Porterhouse $39. Much like Ruth's Chris, you have to order the sides separately. We ordered the Chef's Potato Stack Au Gratin $8, Sauteed Green Beans with Applewood-Smoked Bacon $8, Sauteed or Creamed Spinach$9, Sauteed Mushrooms $9. Way too much food!
Sorry that I don't have better pictures, but Mr. Diva and I were celebrating and it's a nice restaurant, so we didn't want to look like tourists. ;-D
After this HUGE dinner, we didn't have any room for the delectable desserts on their menu, but they knew we were celebrating our anniversary and brought us this sweet ending to our delicious dinner.
All in all, Steakhouse 55 is an excellent restaurant! I don't have a bad thing to say about it other than that it is very expensive. Because of that, we will only be eating there on very, very special occasions. But when we do, at least we will be assured of a great meal!
