New food to review! We can’t wait!

    Gelato?! At Cosmic Ray’s?!? I have to see this to believe it…

  2. Lisa Pembleton says:

    Beef Salad… what is Beef Salad? Beet Salad?

    Interesting…

  3. James says:

    Salmon at a counter service restaurant should be interesting, and I’m glad to see the Angus burger come to Cosmic Ray’s.

  4. Lisa Pembleton says:

    Maybe the Beef Salad is a Steak Salad? that I will DEFINITELY try!

  5. Nancy says:

    how will i decide between the hummus sandwich and the lobster roll now? there are only so many days and so many meals on my vacation!! guess i’ll have to squeeze in two trips to the columbia harbor house in two weeks!

    hey, there could be worse things to worry about ;)

  6. Tricia says:

    Ah but is the lobster roll buttered the way God intended? ;)

  7. Aaron says:

    All of those additions sound great – and just in time for my free Quick-Serve Dining Plan trip next month. :-)

    YAY! Can’t wait to try the lobster roll. My family already loves Columbia Harbour House – on our last visit the CM let my girls order whatever they wanted off the menu as their meal on the DP! Their portions are generous and you can’t beat the roomy seating upstairs that always seems to be rather empty.
    Never ate at Cosmic Rays, but if the “beef salad” is in fact a steak salad I think it will be worth a try!

  9. Jean says:

    If it’s the same Lobster Roll served at Torrowland Terrace, which has been temporarily closed the past few days, it should be devine!

  10. Nate says:

    Lobster Roll!? That can’t be any good, can it…? :D

  11. Beth says:

    Guess I’ll be stopping in to the Harbor House when I’m at WDW next weekend!!

    I recently tried the salmon with couscous and broccoli for $10 and LOVED it! The portion was quite generous, moist, fresh, light and healthy. The salmon was not over-cooked or dry and the broccoli was steamed with a bit of butter. The couscous was very good too but there was no sauce with the dish so some may find the grain alone a bit dry. I can’t wait to try the lobster roll on my next trip!!

  13. Christina says:

    That lobster roll looks kinda scary to me. Way too much mayo. Now, gelato…hullo!

  14. George says:

    That lobster roll looks really mayonnaise-y.

  15. Amy Ross says:

    Columbia Harbour House is my favorite quick service in all of Disney World. Now I have 2 more reasons to love it! Cannot wait to hear how the Lobster Roll tastes! Sounds yummy!!!

  16. Sue says:

    They used to have salmon at Tusker House, when it was quick service. My mother got it all of the time and loved it. She is very happy to see it at Columbia House. I’m very curious about the lobster roll – looking forward to reviews of it.

  17. Julie says:

    Cosmic Rays is probably my favorite quick service. They have so many options and I always get the Rotisserie Chicken, it’s nice to have a break from Chicken Nuggets and Hamburgers as a quick service option! Interesting adds too!

  18. Alan says:

    It’s great news to hear that these two very popular CS places are willing to make additions and changes to their menus. They could just stand pat and rake in the money, but this shows someone is coloring outside the lines.

    The lobster roll looks interesting but I wish they would do one with just lobster and melted butter. I used to drive 100 miles each way to go to West Haven in Conn. to get one of those. Unless you are a mayo freak you can’t ever go back after having a Jimmie’s of Savin Rock lobster roll.

  19. Jill says:

    harbor house is my favorite counter service restaurant! love the additions to the menu!

    My family just visited a few days ago and I brought my parents in the Harbor house for lunch. Being a New Englander, my father had to try the lobster roll and it is much bigger than you think but don’t worry…it also wasn’t as mayonaisy as it looks in this picture:) My mother was very happy with her salmon with cous cous and fresh steamed broccoli. They felt like it was one of the healthies meals that they have had in Disney as far as a quick meal goes. We were pleased with the changes!

  21. NT3 says:

    Lobster Roll, eh? I may need to forgive them for taking the Starboard Deck off the menu a few years ago.

  22. Laura says:

    I love the new addition of the salmon at CHH (one of my fav QS places) but what happened to my Fish and chicken combo? I didn’t see it on the menu :( It has always been one of my go to meals for portion sizes and it was always really good. I however did see that they now have a fish and shrimp combo but for this non-seafood eating girl that ain’t gonna cut it!! Hope I will find my old trusty on the menu this spring!

  23. Kathy says:

    Laura, the fried fish and chicken combo is indeed gone. :( I always used to order it too. We were there on the 24th, the first day of the new menu items, and even on that very first day you couldn’t order the combo “off the menu”, there was already no way to ring it up. I got the salmon instead and enjoyed it, but I’ll miss sharing the fish/chicken combo with my daughter.

  24. Carolyn says:

    Those do seem to be healthier dining options. Good additions and nice to see veggie chili back on the menu.

  25. Rachel says:

    YESSSSSSSS LOBSTER ROLL!! omg I’m so excited haha

  26. Steph says:

    Hmmm..the lobster roll looks like it has too much mayo but 9.99 is a good price.

  27. I heard about the Lobster Roll but couldn’t figure out if it was breaded and fried lobster like a Po Boy or if it was more of a Lobster salad (like a chicken salad). Your pictures helped to clear everything up.
    By the way, do you know if there is any place in Magic Kingdom for counter/kiosk breakfast items other than the Main Street Bakery? My husband and I were just commenting on how long the line is in the AM at Main Street Bakery and realized that we had never paid attention as to whether or not there is another location for breakfast items such as sweet rolls or egg sandwich aside from the bakery.
    I enjoy your blog very much! Thank you.

    Lobster roll sounds delicious!!

    sorry for the ignorance. but from the uk. what is a lobster roll. you guys all seem to love them but i’ve never heard of it. there in a few weeks so may have to try

  31. AJ says:

    sammieb — A lobster roll is basically a bread roll filled with a creamy lobster “salad” of sorts. Chunks of lobster meat are mixed with mayonnaise, spices, and veggies, then scooped into the bread roll (usually they use “New England Style” hot dog buns, which are more like a folded piece of bread).
