Columbia Harbor House is one of my favorite quick service dining locations in Magic Kingdom.

It is located at the intersection of Fantasyland and Liberty Square and serves sandwiches, seafood, and salads from 10:30 am until park closing.

The menu is what I like best about Columbia Harbour House (though it also has a great location and nice theming).

It is different from the burgers and pizza you’d expect from counter service fare in the Magic Kingdom.

Seafood is the main attraction here, with everything from a broiled salmon plate (above) to a lobster roll. 

You’ll also find fried chicken breast nuggets, salads, and a few good vegetarian options.

I apologize for the blurry picture of the menu, but those back-lit screens are so hard to photograph! Head over to AllEars.net to check out the current full menu.

On my most recent trip, I had the Grilled Salmon with Couscous and Steamed Fresh Broccoli ($13.99).  

It included a large piece of salmon that was full of flavor (and not dried out). The couscous and broccoli were also cooked to perfection.

We were on the Dining Plan for this part of the trip (get my Disney dining plan tips and tricks here) so I also got a side of coleslaw and a lemonade slush to complete the meal.

And look who pirated the coleslaw and lemonade slush! She liked the coleslaw, though it had a little too much mayo for my tastes.

I’d never had a lemonade slush before and it was nice – not too sweet and very refreshing.

Here are a few tips for having the best experience at Columbia Harbour House.

First, there is a large upstairs seating area that is always less crowded than the ground floor.

The stairs are to the left of the ordering area. Grab a seat by the window for views of the Haunted Mansion and the Liberty Square Riverboat.

Also, plan to arrive early to avoid crowds.  We arrived at 11:30 am for lunch and only waited a few minutes for our food.

When we left at 12:15, there was a huge line heading out the door and down the sidewalk!

If you are looking for vegetarian or vegan fare, Columbia Harbour House is a good bet. The Harbor Salad can be ordered without meat, the Lighthouse Sandwich is vegetarian, and the chili is actually vegan.

One last tip – some of the sandwiches are served with a bag of potato chips. You can order the sandwich without chips and the price will be reduced by $2.00. I don’t know about you, but I’d rather put that $2 towards a Dole Whip!
