This weeks review is of the Liberty Tree Tavern in the Liberty Square land of the
Magic Kingdom. This restaurant is themed to the founding fathers era of our country
and it is themed very well. The section my table was located in was themed to Betsy
Ross who helped design the Stars and Stripes.
The service was excellent in this restaurant and I never went without a drink. Our
waiter was very cheerful and knowledgeable about the menu. He informed us the most
popular dish on the menu is the Pot Roast, which is a very large portion.
To start the meal I ordered the pomegranate lemonade. This was the only portion of
the meal I completely disliked. This tastes like cough syrup and my waiter was far
from shocked when I sent it back.
“Cool cup... too bad the lemonade is awful”
“A refreshing Coke to wash it away”
The appetizer we went with was the Crab and Spinach Dip For Two. The menu describes
this as Blue Crab, Spinach and Cream Cheese with Warm Flatbread and was priced at
$10.99. This was an outstanding appetizer and to be honest with portion sizes in
this restaurant this was more like an appetizer for 3 or 4 people. There were large
chunks of crab in the dip and it was delicious as was the hot pita bread that was
served with it.
For an entrée my wife selected the Delmarva Chicken and Dumplings. The menu describes
this as Tender Chicken with Carrots, Celery, and “Slippery” Dumplings and is priced
at $14.99. My wife really loved this meal. She thought it was like eating home cooking
at her grandma’s house. Her only complaint was she thought there was a little too
much pepper on the chicken. The portion was so big she could not even finish it.
I took my server’s advice and went with the New England Pot Roast. The menu describes
this as Braised Beef in a Cabernet Wine and Mushroom Sauce served with Mashed Potatoes
and Garden Vegetables and is priced at $17.99. First I would like to say again the
portions at this restaurant are huge. I had a heaping portion of meat on this plate
and it was tender and melts in your mouth. My only complaint about this plate was
the gravy had an overwhelming wine flavor. For you wine drinkers out there you will
love this gravy. I however do not care for wine so I was happy that the gravy on
my plate was very limited and not poured over the meat.
Even though I was stuffed beyond measure and only for the purpose of this review.
I went with the Apple Tart for dessert. The menu describes this as Shortbread Crust,
Sugared Apples and Butterscotch Ice Cream and is priced at $6.49. This was my least
favorite part of the meal and I love dessert. It was not the greatest apple dessert
I have tasted. The apple tart itself was not very sweet and the ice cream was just
Overall this restaurant has moved in my top two places to eat in the Magic Kingdom.
The only downside is walking around Magic Kingdom after such a heavy meal in the
middle of the hot, humid Florida summer. I must say my experience at this restaurant
was a very pleasant one and was a very delicious meal in a very nice setting. Do
not overlook this restaurant if this is what you are looking for.
