Liberty Tree Tavern Review

liberty tree tavern liberty-tree-tavern-00

On our most recent trip one of our goals was to try all new restaurants.  While at the magic kingdom the new (to us) table service location that we decided to try was the “Liberty Tree Tavern.”  We made lunch reservations there and man did we luck out, because just as we were sitting down to lunch it started POURING, and by the time we were done eating the rain had stopped!

The atmosphere of the restaurant was perfectly themed, like any other disney restaurant I’ve been in.  It’s located in the Liberty Square area of the Magic Kingdom and has a colonial feel.  When you walk in you feel like you’re in an old timey tavern (minus the beer flowing because other than Be Our Guest Restaurant at dinner time, the MK is completely dry).

The prices at lunch range from $12.99 for the veggie burger to $19.99 for the freedom pasta.  Most items hover in the $15.99 range.  Because of the lower entree prices, Liberty Tree Tavern is not necessarily the best use of a table service dining credit if you’re on the Disney Dining Plan.  If all the members of your party get the pasta, or the pot roast, you’ll do a little bit better as far as value with the plan, Craig and I did not though.

At dinner, which we didn’t experience, the menu changes from an ala carte style to a family style meal.  The table will be served the following as part of their family style meal-

Patriot’s Platter
Roasted Turkey Breast, Carved Beef and Sliced Pork with Mashed Potatoes, Seasonal Vegetables, Herb Bread Stuffing, and Macaroni & Cheese
I also believe this meal is all you can eat.
While the price for this experience is not listed on the website, I would guess it’s in the $30.00 per person range.  Most buffets at Disney are $37.99 per person.  I am not sure about the family style meals.
Even though I don’t think that lunch was the best use of a table service meal here, I do think that the restaurant is worth checking out!

He said it was one of the best burgers on Disney property.

Now my absolute favorite part of my meal at Liberty Tree Tavern was the dessert.  I ordered the Ooey Gooey Toffee Cake, and I can honestly say, I have never enjoyed a dessert at Disney as much as I enjoyed this one.  It was absolutely fabulous.  With that being said, I have been on the hunt for a copy cat recipe, and I found one, so I’m sharing it with you today!

Thank you disney food blog for sharing this recipe, because this is one you’ll want to pin.

My overall review- The theming is wonderful, the food is wonderful and will not break the bank if you’re not on the disney dining plan.  If you’re on the disney dining plan and not worried about if the meal is the best use of a dining credit check it out at lunch time, if you’re trying to get the most bang for your buck, go at dinner time.  Overall it’s totally worth the time.  Your tastebuds will thank you
