Disney Dining Review Liberty Tree Tavern

Disney Dining Review Liberty Tree Tavern

If you find yourself craving some classic American fare that’s a little heartier than a hotdog or chicken nuggets while strolling through Magic Kingdom look no farther than Liberty Tree Tavern. Thanksgiving dinner is served family style throughout the year here for dinner. Lunch however is a la carte, but don’t worry, you can still get a Thanksgiving feast for lunch.

Colonial America is well represented in this restaurant, which features rooms devoted to Benjamin Franklin, George Washington, and Thomas Jefferson among others. The windows are even made to look like real colonial glass! The lobby is full of dark wood and brick, as well as fall colors to represent early America.

Liberty Tree Tavern can get pretty busy, but to keep kids entertained there is a coloring area in the lobby and there are usually games going on right outside the door.

On the day we visited the restaurant was not too busy, we only had to wait about five minutes for a table and we did not have a reservation. Upon being seated our drink orders were promptly taken and an order for the acclaimed clam chowder was placed. Our drinks arrived in cool mugs featuring Mickey, Donald, and Goofy.

The New England clam chowder was served piping hot with strips of clam and peeking out. The chowder was incredibly buttery and creamy with a nice mixture of veggies to clam. My dining companion proclaimed that is was some of the best clam chowder he had ever had!

For my entrée I ordered the Colony Salad, which included apples, pecans, cheddar, dried cranberries, and grilled chicken all tossed in a honey shallot vinaigrette. The salad was just okay to me, there weren’t many apples, the vinaigrette wasn’t as sweet as I was expecting, and the chicken was a little dry. That being said, all of the flavors go very well together, with the cranberries being the star for me.

Next up was the New England pot roast. This pot roast is absolutely delicious! I’ve had several pot roasts around Disney World and this one is a strong contender for being the best pot roast on property. The roast is braised in a Cabernet and mushroom sauce until the meat is fork tender. The meat is moist and the gravy is rich and delicious. Mashed potatoes, carrots, onions, and celery accompany the huge piece of meat and are cooked to perfection.

We had heard that Liberty Tree Tavern had one of the best burgers on property so we knew we needed to order one…or three! My dining companions just could not turn down this burger! Two ordered it with bacon and cheddar while another got it with mushrooms and provolone. All of them agreed that it was a delicious and filling burger. Just look at how thick and juicy that patty is!

While all of us were pretty full at this point we knew we had to order the Ooey Gooey Toffee Cake. This dessert is the stuff of legends, right up there with O’hana’s bread pudding. The warm vanilla cake bottom has a toffee filled chocolaty top that is crisp on the outside and super buttery and soft on the inside, much like a fresh chocolate chip cookie. On top of that is a heaping scoop of vanilla ice cream that is drizzled with caramel and chocolate sauce and topped with even chocolate and toffee pieces. Liberty Tree Tavern is worth dining at just for this dessert!

Liberty Tree Tavern is a fan favorite, and with good reason. I highly suggest making a reservation here on your next Disney vacation, and don’t forget to get an Ooey Gooey Toffee Cake…or two!

F.A.S.T. Review

Food – Reliable and delicious. This was the third time some people in my party had dined here and they said the food was just as good this time as it had ever been. Where else can you get a Thanksgiving meal and Ooey Gooey Toffee Cake?!

Atmosphere – Imagineers have done it again. Liberty Tree Tavern makes you feel like it’s fall in Colonial America giving guests a way to escape the sweltering Florida heat.

Service – Our waitress was timely and helpful.

Tips – Don’t book your reservation with plans to watch the 3 o’clock parade from inside. The colonial glass makes it very difficult to see outside.
