Disneyland seems to be opening more restaurants at a rapid-fire pace, even bringing back a number of breakfast options to the locations that have been open for a while. Dining reservations at numerous restaurants filled up within minutes of becoming available. However, there is one restaurant that will remain closed.
Steakhouse 55, a high-end restaurant located inside the Disneyland Hotel, is closing permanently. Instagrammer Felipe Disney (@disneyland_ap_engineer) confirmed the news, along with a short statement from Disney.
BREAKING🚨🚨🚨it seems Steakhouse 55 at the Disneyland Hotel will close permanently!!! Such sad news! Hope a new restaurant comes soon!
“At this time, there are no plans to reopen Steakhouse 55 at the Disneyland Hotel. We are exploring options for this location and will update you when we have news to share.”
Steakhouse 55 first opened in 2006, after it replaced what was once Granville’s Steak House, which had been at the location since 1983. Steakhouse 55 was known for its high-end offerings including Broiled Cold Water Lobster Tail and Garlic and Herb-crusted Lamb Chops.
Steak lovers will rave about the ample marbling of our premium beef, which ensures exceptional flavor in each juicy bite. The dry rub-seasoned bone-in rib eye is a Steakhouse 55 specialty, weighing in at a generous 18 ounces. We also feature Guest-favorite cuts like a 14-ounce New York strip steak and an 8-ounce filet mignon.
Other entrée choices include cold water lobster tail, prime rib, pan-roasted Mary’s Farm half-chicken and Moroccan-spiced king salmon. Add a finishing touch to any entrée with béarnaise sauce, “Steakhouse 55” butter or have it prepared Oscar-style.
Mix and match à la carte sides like the “loaded” baked potato, sautéed green beans and truffled macaroni & cheese. The children’s menu features a selection of healthy Disney Check meals.
To complement your dinner, our expert sommeliers can assist Guests 21 and over in selecting the perfect wine. You may even have the opportunity to enter the wine cellar and taste several vintages—cheers!
At this time, Disneyland Resort officials have made no comment on what will be replacing Steakhouse 55. In this writer’s opinion, the classic styling of the restaurant lends itself perfectly to bring in a restaurant like the Hollywood Brown Derby (Cobb salad please!).
Due to the limited space available at Disneyland, it will be interesting to see how long the Disneyland Resort keeps this space empty and available.
