The restaurant’s exterior resembles an old colonial mansion, complete with white clapboard siding, black shutters, and a red roof. An enormous, sprawling oak tree stands in front of the building, giving the restaurant its name and serving as a symbol of the freedom and independence for which America’s founding fathers fought.

You’ll notice 13 lamps hanging from the branches of the oak tree. This understated touch represents the 13 original colonies and is another example of Disney’s attention to detail. This is a beautiful photo spot to visit before or after a meal at Liberty Tree Tavern.

The interior of Liberty Tree Tavern is just as impressive, with rooms decorated to evoke the feeling of colonial America. Guests enter a cozy lobby area, complete with a fireplace, wooden beams, and colonial-style furniture. The main dining room features windows overlooking Liberty Square, New England-style wooden walls, and a fireplace.

There are several smaller rooms as well, each with its unique style and décor, perfect for families or small groups. As a classic Disney movie lover, I get Ichabod Crane vibes every time I eat here. The design of the dining area is reminiscent of Farmer Van Tassel’s New England-style home in the classic 1949 movie The Many Adventures of Ichabod and Mr. Toad.

The turkey is slow-roasted and served with stuffing, mashed potatoes, green beans, and cranberry sauce, making it the perfect hearty meal for families or anyone looking for classic comfort. Another traditional dish, the pot roast, is slow-cooked to perfection and served with carrots, potatoes, and gravy. It’s the perfect choice for a warm and filling meal.

Plant-based options are offered at Liberty Tree Tavern. The fresh and crunchy Declaration Salad and the Impossible Meatloaf are excellent choices for plant-based eaters. Johnny Appleseed’s Warm Apple Cake makes a sweet ending to the plant-based menu with a caramel drizzle and whipped topping dolloped atop this yummy dessert. You’ll also find a solid beer, wine, and cocktail menu if you want to enjoy libations with your meal. My choice of cocktail on the menu is the Gold Rush or the Liberty Sangria, which are both delicious options!

About Katie Chapman

Hey There! I am a Georgia native with a passion for writing, traveling, cooking, decorating, pugs and of course all things Disney. Growing up in South Georgia just a few hours from Walt Disney World made for a magical childhood. Some of my best memories were made on Main Street U.S.A. with my sister watching SpectroMagic nighttime parade or beside my grandparents, parents and extended family at Chef Mickey’s celebrating on a family vacation. Epcot was my favorite park from a young age and I credit it with my interest in and love for international travel. As a kid I loved meeting characters and watching films around World Showcase and could spend hours exploring each of the countries in Epcot. These days, my husband and I get away to explore a new country whenever we can and even incorporate trips to The Disney Store and Disney Parks around the world in our travels. One of our travel goals is to visit every Disney Park in the world. I love writing about Disney restaurants, park tips, Disney outfit inspiration and Disney history. Pocahontas is my favorite Disney Princess (90s kid here!) but Mr. Toad is my spirit animal. When I’m not at Disney I’m reading about park history, watching Disney documentaries and shopping vintage Disney merch for park outfits. I never pass up a reservation to Ohana, an empty seat on Living with the Land or a Violet Sake.
