NOW OPEN: Turf Club Bar and Grill at Saratoga Springs
The Turf Club Bar and Grill, an incredible Table Service eatery at Saratoga Springs Resort has officially reopened at Walt Disney World and MickeyBlog is there!
A reservation at Turf Club is a great time to check out Saratoga Springs, one of Disney’s original DVC properties. We consider it a bit of hidden gem and a place we don’t get to nearly as often as we should!
We had a 5pm dining reservation. Guests can check in online using the My Disney Experience app. The app will alert you when your table is ready.
The dining room here is lovely and spacious!
The cast members were very welcoming and excited to be back!
As you can see from the image below there is both indoor and outdoor dining.
The patio, pictured above, is perfect for those sunny Florida evenings!
The dining room is opulent with gorgeous carpeting and dark wood.
Stained glass windows throughout add extra ambiance.
Our Mickeybloggers Greg and Elyssa were the very first people to be seated at dinner.
This meant some fantastic views of the dining areas.

The Chef came out to greet us and our servers are amazing!
Below is a look at the bar area. It definitely put us in the mood for a cocktail!
The staff at Turf told us that there have been some awesome changes to the menu but that the eatery has held on to some of the restaurant’s favorite dishes including the Prime Rib and French Onion Soup!
Now this is what we call dinner with a view!
First up is the bread course.
We were served a Parmesan-crusted baguette with lava salt black dusted butter.
All the plates at the restaurant were new and brought in especially for reopening!
Now its time for the appetizers! Since the menu is new we thought we’d share it above.
First up is the Grilled Artichokes.
It comes with Grilled Artichoke Hearts, Crispy Baby Artichokes, Roasted Garlic Tahini Sauce, Pickled Golden Raisins and Roasted Shallot Vinaigrette.
We also tried the French Onion Soup.
The soup is made with caramelized onions in a rich beef broth. Melted over the top are Fontina and Gruyere Cheese.
The dish also comes with a house-made brioche crouton!
Greg and Elyssa also tried the Fritto Misto. This dish is made up of Tempura Battered Calamari.
The dish also comes with broccolini, green beans and pepperoncini. It is served with a spicy marinara sauce and garlic aioli!
Fun Fact: We were told that the veggies served in this dish actually come from the greenhouses of The Land pavilion in EPCOT!
We decided to wash our appetizers down with a new drink called the Sip-Abration.
This drink is lemonade that is served with a Disney friend that dissolves and gives it an extra bit of flavor!
Here are a couple of videos we took for those curious about the process!
We’re sure that this is something that the kids would positively love!
Next up it’s time for the Entrees!
Greg got the Prime Rib which is one of the dishes the restaurant is known for.
It comes with crispy potatoes, roasted baby carrots, broccolini and a red wine jus!
Elyssa got the Carrot-Filled Agnolotti which is made up of house made pasta, carrot puree, Royal Trumpet and Maitake Mushrooms and a truffle onion cream.
Above is a closer look at the new main courses on offer!
While we waited for dessert, Chef Camilo came around to our able to ask us how the food was and our answer was delicious! All of the dishes we tried were spectacular and we’ll definitely be back!
Above is a first look at the dessert menu!
Greg opted for the Ricotta Basil Gelato. It comes with a Strawberry Consomme, Olive Oil Cake, Basil Oil and Crisp Meringue.
Below is a look at the New York-Style Cheesecake! It came with Berry Sauce, Chambord macerated berries, Brachetto cream and Swiss meringue.
