We'll be at DL next week (yeah!!). We've made a reservation for Steakhouse 55 our last night but wondering, is there anywhere off the grounds that's not too hard to get to (ie; cheap cab ride) that we might be interested in instead? We're already doing Blue Bayou and the Japanese place (which name escapes me right now and I'll remember when I hit the submit button).
Also, will most places let you just get a plate for your kid or do you have to order off the kids menu? My daughter is 4 and I find there's too much food on the kids menu and too much food for me to eat anyway.
If you're interested in steak, there's a Morton's steak house and a Ruth's Criss on Harbor. They're past the convention center (too far to walk,) but I'd guess that a cab would be less than $10. In the same area there's also a Buca di Beppo, which I love. But, all of them are not unique to Disney (or California even) places. Given that, I'd probably stick with Steakhouse 55 unless something has particular appeal to you.

Napa Rose in the Grand Californian is great. Pricy but the food is absolutely fabulous. There are quite a few restaurants in the surrounding area outside of Disney. There is a Mimi's, Tony Roma's Ribs, I-Hop, Dennys, Tillys Cafe, and McDonalds. If you have a car - down the street there are more restaurants like Red Robin, Morton's Steakhouse etc. Also, Knotts Berry Farm is only 15-20 min away and they have a nice restaurant outside their park, plus there is a Claim Jumper, Po Folks and Red Lobster. Hope this helps.
