Disneyland Resort Explores Options for Steakhouse 55 Location

Many dining locations and restaurants are reopening at the Disneyland Resort as things continue to return to the new normal. In previous weeks, DAPS MAGIC has reported on many of these dining locations being reopened. One restaurant that hasn’t received a reopening date is Steakhouse 55 at the Disneyland Hotel.

DAPS MAGIC has learned from Disney that options are being explored for this location. Disney also shared that they look forward to sharing more information about this at a future date.

Steakhouse 55 received its name in reference to the year that Disneyland opened. It opened on November 27, 2006. It replaced Granville’s Steak House, which had opened in 1983. The atmosphere in the restaurant harkened back to the era of Old Hollywood and Walt Disney. Black and white photos hung on the walls portraying Walt Disney, movie stars, and musical talent from the old days.

The restaurant had achieved acclaim with the Orange County Register awarding it four stars. It also received a Golden Bacchus from the Southern California Restaurant Writers Association. Zagat also described the restaurant as “amazing,” “a gem,” “elegant” and “the best rib eye in town.”

For many guests, this was a wonderful upscale restaurant to visit for an incredible meal. Depending on who you asked, some would say it offered the best food at the Disneyland Resort.

  1. Steakhouse 55 or Granvilles, as we first knew it, has been our favorite restaurant at Disneyland for 30 years. We knew we could count on a relaxed, excellent meal at this location. The service was always exceptional and we looked forward to dining there as the staff was welcoming . The only time we went to Napa Rose or Carthay Circle was if we could not get reservations at “55”. We also enjoyed the holiday specials to which they gave an extra touch. They had an excellent wine cellar and we enjoyed many wine paired meals to try new to us wines with wonderful food. 55 service was vastly superior to Napa Rose and Carthay Circle. 55 was a nice respite from the chaos of the parks and downtown disney. We also knew it was a favorite of the Disney management/executives. All the lands and restaurants we and others enjoyed, in addition to the recent closing of 55, like Big Thunder Ranch BarBQue, and the Japanese Restaurant, Disney keeps closing.

    It appears that Disney wants mobile orders (which don’t work) food service only, and you can have that anywhere.
