Over the holiday, we spent some time at the Magic Kingdom. It was nearing lunch time, so our party of six decided to grab lunch at Columbia Harbour House. It’s one of Matt’s favorites in MK, and you can read about some of our favorite menu items here.
Matt ordered his Anchor’s Aweigh Sandwich, as he traditionally does with a bag of the Disney branded potato chips on the side. It was as good as it always is.
I decided to try something new, and bravely ordered the Lobster Roll. The menu picture looked acceptable; lightly dressed lobster meat and lettuce. What I received, however, did not.
I reluctantly brought it back to our table and grabbed a fork and scooped up a bite. Quite honestly, it was awful. It was a soupy mess of mayonnaise with bits of red pepper and red onion mixed in. I choked down the one bite and brought it back, requesting a the ability to change the order to something else. The cast member was very polite in handling my request, and even suggested the salmon instead. I declined as I don’t eat cooked salmon, and I ended up getting the fried fish basket after all.
The lobster roll was a disappointment, and while it’s nice that they’ve changed up the menu, it’s not worth it if an item is poorly executed. I wasn’t expecting New-England quality, but I did expect something a bit better. Nix the peppers and onions and scale back the mayonnaise, please. Then perhaps we can talk.
Have you tried the lobster roll? Do you have a favorite menu item at Columbia Harbour House, or do you stick to old favorites?
