Our food was excellent and the service impeccable, with our linen tablecloth being decrumbed. I had the rack of lamb with spinach, and my husband had filet mignon, which he kept raving about. We finished with a Grand Marnier soufflé, which had to be preordered. We shared an expensive bottle of red wine and were very glad to have had a $50 off coupon as the bill came to well over $100.
The Buccaneer Bay Restaurant is a wonderful place for a romantic dinner, but not someplace one would take young children.

The waiter suggested that we place our dessert order with our dinner order (we were getting one of their signature souffles) so that it would be ready about the time we would be done eating.
The food was presented beautifully, and melted in our mouths it was so tender.
If you time your reservation just right, you also have an excellent view of the pirate battle, a vantage point that most people don't get to enjoy.

The tables are set along the windows overlooking the artificial lagoon where the nightly pirate ship battle takes place.
Like the rest of Treasure Island, the theme is pirates and the restaurant decor resembles the inside of a fancy pirate galleon but you don't have to worry about hard tack or gruel for dinner. The menu features lobster, prime rib, steaks, seafood, duck, etc. My husband loved the sea bass which was pan fried and served with rice and crisply steamed vegetables. I had chicken which was good, but the portion was small. Other members of our party had prime rib and lobster and said theirs was delicious.
Prices are not cheap but the quality of the food and the excellent service combine to make a memorable meal. One benefit to smaller size portions is that there is room for dessert and we were very pleased with the Grand Mariner souffle. There is a good selection of wine and liqueurs as well.
Don't come here expecting to get a front row seat for the nightly pirate battles. The restaurant is located behind the ship and most of the special effects happen in the front so there isn't a lot to see but do come here for an excellent meal with great service and ambience.
By the way, they don't make you walk the plank although one wonders what would happen if you couldn't pay for your meal?
