Recently, I was lucky to have Chef Scott Tosh at Shutters at Old Port Royale guide me through dinner at the beachy restaurant located at Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort.

The appetizers brought a taste of the islands: barbecue shrimp and grits, chicken wings, braised beef and pepper jack cheese empanada. Of course, I had to try Chef Scott’s favorite dish on the menu—pan-seared crab cakes. The mango mayo is one of his personal recipes.

The entrees I sampled were like a tropical getaway: Caribbean-spiced pork, osso buco, island pasta with shrimp, garlic-lime-seared chicken breast, today’s sustainable fish, and the char-crusted 10-oz New York strip. The outer crust of the New York strip seals in the juices and enhances the flavor with the chimmichurri sauce and smoked Gouda macaroni and cheese.

By now, you’re probably aware that I have quite the sweet tooth, so it should be no surprise to learn that I had to sample every dessert on the menu. The decadent Shutters chocolate cake served with a rich chocolate pate, the vanilla cheesecake topped with a banana brûlée, the tres leches cake topped with toasted coconut, and my favorite—the warm cinnamon white chocolate bread pudding.

  • We ate there on our last trip to WDW as a last minute dinner. We had missed our dining reservation that evening, and were able to get a table quickly without a reservation right at the hotel. Our family agreed it was the best meal of our entire 8 day trip!

  • We have been to Shutters three times while staying at Caribbean Beach. We LOVE it! The steak is always amazing and you can not go with out having the chocolate cake for dessert! It is one of our favorite places to eat!

    • I agree, Rebecca! 🙂

  • This was an excellent post. I’ve never been to Shutters and didn’t know much about it, but now that I’ve read this and seen all the pictures it is moving up on my list of places to try!

    • I’m glad you enjoyed the post, Julianne. I hope you give Shutters at Old Port Royal a try on your next visit – it’s delicious! 🙂

  • We just dined here for the first time on Valentine’s Day. Those crab cakes are phenomenal – I will definitely go back for those again!

    • I loved the crab cakes as well! They’re definitely worth the trip to Caribbean Beach Resort.
