Liberty Tree Tavern: dining in the Magic Kingdom

The Liberty Tree Tavern is located in Liberty Square - across from the Riverboat and near the Hall of Presidents.  
We visited this restaurant for the first time in May.  And I must admit that in the beginning, I was not that excited about eating here. I had read a few reviews of dinner - and well, as un-American as this might sound, I am not a fan of Thanksgiving type foods.  But.  As I read and researched further, I found that the lunch menu at the Liberty Tree tavern is quite different than the family style Thanksgiving meal at dinner.  There was a menu.  With lots of choices.  And ones that sounded really good.

I really like the theming of this restaurant as well.  It's located in an 18th century colonial style building - and then the dining room is composed of a series of rooms that are patriot themed: Betsy Ross, Paul Revere, John Paul Jones, Benjamin Franklin, George and Martha Washington, and Thomas Jefferson.  
And it's really fun when they call you from the waiting area to your table: "Welcome the Harris family from Georgia!"
We were seated in the John Paul Jones section right by a window.  
Do you see those stairs in the above photo?  If I have any quibble at all with this restaurant, it's the bathroom.  The bathroom is up those stairs (I am not sure how they handle accessible needs) - and it's really, really small.  
When you get your drinks, they are in these cute tavern mugs - and they are also available for purchase.


My mom and I decided to split the New England Pot Roast (the tavern keepers favorite).  And it was delicious.  Normally, I am not a big fan of pot roast.  It seems that almost everything made in my slow cooker tastes the same.  Obviously, the Liberty Tree Tavern did not use my slow cookers!  This was absolutely amazing.  The beef was fork tender and melt in your mouth.  And the potatoes with the gravy - I could eat it again right now.  Because we split a meal, we were each brought a plate with our half portions - so this picture is a half portion.
My girls decided to split the Pilgrim's feast.  They do not join me in my feelings for Thanksgiving food.  They thought it was all quite yummy - and even ate their green beans.  Again - this is a half portion on the plate. 
Our lunch was amazing - but what is going to make me go back is the dessert - the Ooey Gooey toffee cake. I wish we had gotten more than one to share!

So...what about you?  Have you tried Liberty Tree Tavern?  Do you like Thanksgiving food?
