It's our favorite CS meal in MK. Personally, I like the Anchor's Aweigh sandwich (tuna) and DH likes the fish and shrimp combo. They have a newer fried shrimp platter that looks interesting.

One of my favorites too. I love the Anchors Aweigh sandwich and the apple dessert is GOOD!

Yes, it is my favorite CS at the MK because they have something other than burgers and it is quieter. I never even knew it was a counter service place for many years ... always walked by thinking it was a TS. LOL!

Have fun on the tour!

Add me to the list of CHH fans! :thumbsup2

I like the shrimp platter which is the same one they have at Mara. The fish/chicken combo is pretty good, too.

I like the Lighthouse Sandwich. I must get there at least once per trip.

Columbia Harbour House is probably my favorite counter service location on property. I particularly enjoy the Lighthouse sandwich, which includes hummus, tomato and broccoli slaw.

They save a nice area on the 2nd floor of Harbor House reserved for the tour people and you order ahead and the food is ready when you get there. I got the fish basket and DW got the Anchors Aweigh tuna Sandwich which is think the best tuna sandwich I have evrer eaten, Here are some other meals offered at Coulmbia House.

Lighthouse Sandwich

Chicken Breast Nuggets and Fish

Fried Shrimp Basket

Chicken Breast Nuggets

BLT Salad

Garden Harvest Salad


Strawberry Yogurt

I'm a huge fan of tuna sandwiches, and the Anchors Aweigh is one of my favorites.

We took the tour in February - it was excellent. When you check in for the tour, a CM will take your lunch order then (so it will be ready when you get there int he afternoon.) I don't recall if they gave us the whole menu to choose from or not. (The tuna sandwich was on it though.) Have a great trip!

I usually just get the chicken tenders. DH loves the fried fish there and our friend really like the tuna sandwich.

I have read some reports where people on the KTTK tour picked from the whole menu (that was how it was for our tour in September 2009) and others where there were limited options (even from other people who went around the same time as we did).

All the portions are of a good size, you could split with someone getting something else, the tuna sand is 2 pretty big halfs I split that with DW gave her one of the fish from the fish basket.

I have never had the tuna sandwich at CHH but after all the positive reviews here on the DIS I'm definitely going to be getting one during our upcoming trip. I can't wait to try it!!! :thumbsup2

The BLT salad is one of our favorites! It is a fresh salad with fried chicken strips (all white meat) on top with cheese, crumbled bacon and onions and some other salad items. Choose your own dressing for it, and it is a great change from the same old.

One day when we go back, the Lighthouse sandwich is on the top of my list!:)

CHH is pretty much the only CS we do at WDW. It was once better, but we still include it on some of our trips. :earsboy:

After reading this thread, I just have to try this place next trip.

The tuna salad sandwich, BLT salad and shrimp basket all sound fabulous.

I liked it. It has a really nice atmosphere. We did the KTTK tour before. It's great. Have fun!

We ate at CHH for the first time in March and LOVED :love: it. I had the fish basket which was really good and my DH had the shrimp basket which was really really good. We went upstairs to eat our food and that was great because there was hardly anyone up there. We are definitely going to be eating here again :goodvibes

I don't think I've heard an ill word about CHH ever. I stop there every trip for a lunch.

I rarely eat burgers so this is my favorite CS restaurant at MK. It very large with lots of rooms, a cool place on a hot day to grab a quick lunch.

Weird, but I love the tuna sald at Pop Century resort. Is this sandwich similar? Does anyone have a pic?

Thanks!

Love them all!! Tuna sad being my favorite, with the Clam chowder and Chix strips/fish in a close second. Enjoy! They use to ask you what you wanted when you checkin for your tour. Not sure if they still do that, but just be prepared incase they do. IMO, It is hard to choose your lunch 4 hours before you are actually ready to eat it and just after eating breakfast!

We have lunch there at least once every trip. I like the tuna sandwich and also the shrimp platter. I have done KTTK twice and seem to recall that we had a more limited menu the second time. We love the atmosphere at Columbia. Really miss the monte cristo sandwiches, but I guess I'm aging myself!! HA HA!!

Enjoy The Magic!!

I really liked the fried shrimp, they were plentiful and delicious. DH liked the BLT salad 'cause he's not much of a fish kinda guy. The apple thingy for dessert was pretty good too. Get away from the crowds and eat upstairs, if it weren't for the DIS, we'd have been downstairs with the rest of the diners. :eek:

The one big problem I have with CHH is that the place needs more ventilation. When you enter, there alwasy seems to be a strong odor of fried fish in the air. I second going to the upstairs if you can, it' snot quie as bad up there in my experience.

Oh - and I don't what you are allowed to do, but teh restroom inside the restaurant is TINY. A better bet is to use the one just outside - before Peter Pan.

I love it there! I had the fish n' chips but it was dang good! It's definitely my favorite QS in the MK!

I agree, get the tuna sandwhich. Best tuna sandwhich I ever had. I could go for one right now! Not heavy on the mayo and the bread was a delicious multi-grain. The only thing I didn't care was it was served with chips, which I don't like, and there was no substitutes. It was fine though, I just had some of DS's fries and he had my chips.

It wasn't as crowded for seating either as Peco's Bills is. Definately on our must do list. (my kids had the nuggets and they looked good as well)

The fried shrimp basket was very good and it had a good number of shrimp - maybe 10?

Columbia Harbour House is probably my favorite counter service location on property. I particularly enjoy the Lighthouse sandwich, which includes hummus, tomato and broccoli slaw.

Does that broccoli slaw have mayonnaise on it?

TIA

Yes, but not a lot. This is my favorite meal at CHH and I'm not a big fan of mayo.

One of my favorites too. I love the Anchors Aweigh sandwich and the apple dessert is GOOD!

YUM! Go upstairs and you'll likely find it much less crowded. I really enjoyed this last year!

I like this sandwich too!

When we go there, we like to eat in the dining room upstairs. It's cozier and you get a pretty view :)

Can you get the BLT salad on the dining plan or is considered an appetizer even though it is a "chicken salad" . I always get this as an entree but this is the first time we will be on the dining plan so I am wondering if I will be out of luck??? :(

We finally tried CHH for the first time this past Dec and LOVED:lovestruc it. We ate there twice during the week. Both times we had the fried shimp platter and loved it. DH tried the chili once as well and enjoyed it. I love the apple tart things for dessert. I ate mine and dh's. :blush:

Love it there ate twice during our stay. The smell alone is awesome. I had the fried chicken salad w/choco cake, my daughter had the chicken strip & fried shrimp basket and they were both great!! Cant wait to eat here again.

I haven't eaten at CHH personally, but I'm certain you can get the BLT salad with a beverage and a dessert for a CS credit.

The appetizer rule applies only to ala carte menus at table service restaurants (i.e., places where a waiter/waitress serve you).

The BLT salad is an entree using the dining plan, just add your drink and dessert and you're good to go.

ok so happy now about the BLT salad being an entree!!!:cool1:Thanks for clarifying. I guess I don't have all the "rules" down yet about the dining plan. Love the salad, husband loves the fish and my kids love the clam chowder!

I got the clam chowder and used a TS credit on the dining plan last time, no problem! It wasn't listed as such on the menu, but I asked and I am glad I did! This is making me hungry :)
