Liberty Inn

by josh on December 1, 2012

11/15/13 Update: Menu updated and items added.

Location: You’ll find it in the United States Pavilion to the left of The American Adventure.

Food Type: Mostly typical Disney burgers, nuggets, and salads, but some better new items too like the steak.

Dining Plan: One quick service credit and some items count as snacks.

Menu:


Unique Items: Steak, California Burger, Chik’n Breast,  Kosher Meals, and the Pasta/Grilled Chicken for Kids are unique or rare.

Advantages:

  • Tons of indoor, air-conditioned seating and plenty of outdoor tables and chairs.
  • Service is usually quick with short lines.
  • Menu has improved and expanded greatly – several of the items are very good and at least approach being healthy.
  • Apple Pie for dessert is very patriotic.

Disadvantages:

  • Can be very loud when it’s busy.
  • No longer has a toppings bar.

Value: Average to Above Average.  While still expensive, this is what you’re going to pay anywhere and the food is prepared better here than most other locations.

Reputation: Low, but it doesn’t necessarily deserve it anymore.  I think anyone visiting in the last year would have enjoyed the experience.

Food Choices:

6-ounce New York Strip Steak:

Unlike the Pecos Bill Pork Glop Platter, this “steak” at least appears to be the right kind of meat.  We’re at least not talking about old ground beef again!

And that’s a pretty substantial hunk of meat.  It’s advertised at six ounces, but looks to be more.

And I’m not sure how, but this was actually pretty good.  It’s (hopefully) not going to be the best steak you’ve ever had, obviously, but for $11 it was surprisingly tasty.  It was extremely tender and easy to cut with the plastic fork and knife.  The butter, despite being a sort of off-putting color, tasted heavenly.  And it’s grilled to order, though no one asked me how I wanted it prepared.  I’m thinking you can specify whether you want it well-done, but it came out a very nice medium.  The potatoes had obviously been plated long before the steak and were cold by the time the steak was ready.  The potatoes don’t have a ton of flavor, but they’re a little different than your usual Disney fries.  The broccoli was also warm, at best, by meal consumption time.

Grilled Chicken BLT:

With Monterey Jack, Bacon, Lettuce, Tomato, Red Pepper Aioli, and choice of grapes (yeah right) or fries.

I was impressed by the freshly grilled strips of bacon, ripe tomato slices, and large leaf lettuce on a fresh bun.

Unfortunately, the chicken was dry and the red pepper aioli was either missing or flavorless. I may still be trying to swallow the last few bites of the chicken, I really don’t know.

Seating:

Liberty Inn offers the only air-conditioned seating of any World Showcase quick service.  It is popular during peak meal times (12pm – 2pm and 6pm – 8pm), but there are almost always tables and it’s a great place to take a rest during less popular times of day.  There’s also plenty of outdoor seating should you choose to watch the Fife and Drum Corps during your meal or simply prefer the Florida heat.

You’ll also find plenty of tables out front.

Condiments:

Liberty Inn offers tubs of ketchup and honey mustard along with the usual assortment of goodies.

we ate here for lunch on the last day of our holiday before setting off for the airport. We ordered our food and were then picked out as VIP guests and taken to a set table and served by a cast member. As it was not busy this was a little awkward at first and we got some strange looks from other diners. However it was a very nice gesture and the cast member even crayoned with the kids whilst we finished our meal. The food was good, I had the flatbread, and it was a nice end to our visit.

The availability of indoor, air conditioned seating makes this place great!! We only stopped here for a beer while drinking around the world, but it was nice to sit and relax for a little bit without worry.

Noisiest chairs in WDW.

The steak was good, but only had 2 tiny pieces of broccoli and 2 small slices of potatoes. BTW, why was everyone moving around and talking/screaming in the seating area?? I’ve never seen and heard so much commotion before…
