We ate there this past January right when they opened for the day.
Really enjoyed the clam chowder (we're not from NE ) and DD loves their Mac & Cheese. Like PPs said, it's a good option other than burgers.
DH had the fish and he liked it too.

With all these great reviews, I will make sure we try Columbia Harbor House when we go in two weeks

Columbia Harbour House is easily my favorite counter service location in the Magic Kingdom, and I go there for lunch just about every trip. I particularly like the tuna sandwich and hummus sandwich but will indulge in the fried items when I'm feeling particularly skinny.

I've tried almost everything on the menu and have never had a bad meal there. And like almost everybody else has mentioned, the upstairs section is a wonderful hidden gem. I love sitting by the window that looks out on The Haunted Mansion queue and watching people get in line!

We've always gotten the shrimp platter and love it!! We'd love to try the tuna though. Does the tuna salad have onion in it? We don't care for onion, so that has always held us back.

They added the shrimp sometime in '09. In Jan they didn't have it, but in Dec they did. Must have been summer, cause I anticipated it for months.

Speaking of CHH... I know that they often close early (which is why that's usually our lunch choice). In late July we are probably only going to arrive at MK for the afternoon/evening. Does anyone know if they typically stay open for dinner at that time of year?

I only have anecdotal evidence, but I have definitely seen Columbia Harbour House open at 9 p.m. and even later. It definitely serves dinner.

You asked this question right as I was making my last post! Columbia Harbour House does not have the hot melted cheese like at Pecos Bill. Sorry to disappoint!

My husband, daughter and I just ate there this past Friday. I thought the food was great! My husband got the fried fish basket and thought it was very good. I got the tuna sandwich, and it was delish. DD5 got the chicken nuggets and she really liked them. It was a great last meal at the World! I'm SOOOOO ready to go back!

The shrimp at Columbia Harbor House is amazing, and they give quite a lot. If you are a shrimp lover I suggest Cooke’s of Dublin at DTD.

Well, we just got back from another wonderful vacation (sniff, sniff, tear in my eye), and we had another lovely lunch at Columbia. I got the tuna, and no I really don't believe it had onion in it. I don't like onion in mine at all, and would have been able to tell. My husband had the fried shrimp this time and said it was great. Oh how I wish we were back to that day!
