REVIEW: Lunch at Liberty Tree Tavern at the Magic Kingdom

This post may contain affiliate links; please read the disclosure for more information.

No than long ago, Nick LoCicero (of WDW News Tonight) and myself went to lunch at Liberty Tree Tavern at the Magic Kingdom. For those unaware, lunch does not offer the all-you-care-to-eat feast, but rather a menu quite different from the offerings at dinner. In year’s past, it had actually been my favorite lunch location in the park (I never enjoyed counter service in this park until some recent changes and additions). Our real reason for dining here was to acquire the swanky new metal souvenir mugs that had recently debuted, but for research purposes, we decided to try some appetizers and other items we had not had before:

I hadn’t been to lunch at Liberty Tree Tavern in quite a while, so the menu had some changes

The main reason we went was to get this souvenir mug

The sweet corn fritters were good, but not as flavorful as some I had had in the past at other places

The clam chowder is a must for me here. It’s nothing out of the ordinary, but a tradition of sorts for me.

The lobster and crab dip for 2 was surprisingly good. Honestly, this can feed 3-4 people for an appetizer. You get an entire loaf of buttered bread and big bowl of the dip which was honestly far beyond my expectations.

The “BLT” with pork belly was delicious. The multi-grain bread was fantastic and the pork cooked to tender perfection. The arugula tasted very fresh as well.

Pardon the blurry pic, but I ordered the hamburger with mushrooms and provolone. Again, this is kind of just a tradition for me. I LOVE their fries and the hamburger is usually the right portion following the clam chowder. They recentlt changed the bun, which I would say is a improvement over the former. One of the better burgers on property if you’re in the mood.

The wreckage…

While the new souvenir cups are great, the new plate-ware and plain glasses seem a bit out of place…

Overall, this is still my favorite lunch spot in the park. It’s quiet and nothing was really bad. With the serene setting and solid menu, you would be hard pressed to find a much better table-service lunch in this park (although Plaza is another one of my favorites).
