Liberty Tree Tavern Review Is This the Best Family Restaurant at Disney?

Liberty Tree Tavern in Magic Kingdom is by far one of the best, dare we say THE best family restaurant at Walt Disney World. And while we definitely have other restaurants that can compete for this title, a recent visit has completely confirmed this belief. Here’s why…

If you’re traveling as a family, or a group or just visiting in town relatives, Liberty Tree Tavern may be exactly what you’re looking for in a restaurant. A family-style meal, all you care to enjoy at decent prices will have you sitting in a cozy, casual environment without immersive dining requirements or a menu filled with exotic cuisine.

Liberty Tree Tavern Atmosphere

The Liberty Tree Tavern restaurant can be found in Liberty Square in Magic Kingdom. Now we must admit, of all the locations in Magic Kingdom, Liberty Square has not been an area we hang out in much. In fact up until they introduced the show with the Muppets who sing about the greatest moments in history, but only the American parts, there really wasn’t anything there we loved. And now that they’ve taken that away again, why hand out here? True, we do love the Christmas Shoppe, but then we heard about the Oooey Gooey Toffee Cake. And that pretty much changed our minds completely. 

A throwback to Colonial Williamsburg this classic American fare restaurant with dark wood oak, fireplaces in every room, and the staff dressed in all things colonial just feels homey. We’ve seen large families, small families, young families, date nite, girls’ night out, you name it. And unlike the immersive dining experiences we sometimes love, you aren’t required to engage with the staff or visiting characters. You can just sit and enjoy your meal.

Liberty Tree Tavern Worth it?

Liberty Tree Tavern Restaurant Menu

The real reason this ends up being the best family restaurant at Walt Disney World in addition to the casual atmosphere and the budget-friendly price is the MENU. Got picky kids? No worries. This menu is Thanksgiving dinner. Got big eaters? No worries, this menu is all you can eat for Thanksgiving dinner. Tired of the restaurant meals during vacation? No worries, this menu feels homemade! So here’s the lineup.

The meal is served family-style. You receive rolls with sweet butter to start. No orders are necessary. Everything will come to your table in courses. Salad is next. The salad comes with a very light sweet vinaigrette. Even the pickiest eater should love this salad. Your side dishes are red-skinned mashed potatoes, green beans, and cheddar macaroni and cheese. All of these are amazing and taste wonderful. Perfect for even the vegetarians in your group. You also get sliced turkey, pork roast, and pot roast. We discovered a love of perfectly cooked meats while eating here. You’ll also get gravy and a tart cranberry sauce. And we feel like we can’t say this enough, the food here is amazing. Everything on this menu tasted wonderful and we find it consistently good every single time we go. 

And if you’re ready for a Plant-Based option at Liberty Tree Tavern, then the impossible meatloaf is right up your alley! Covered in gravy, this tastes like the real thing and adds a great flavor to the meal.

Oooey Gooey Toffee Cake is the real reason everyone comes here. We sometimes just order this cake by itself on cold afternoons and are anxiously awaiting the day that we can just mobile order the cake and pick it up at a window- no reservation required. If it was possible to get it sent to our room, we would. The cake is dense, sweet, and filled with toffee. Cover it with vanilla ice cream and more toffee bits while the cake is still warm, and it’s absolute heaven. And yes, you can order seconds. You will regret it if you don’t. The completely vegan option here is Warm Carrot Cake, which is also quite light and lovely.
