Chances are when you visit Universal Studios Islands of Adventure in Orlando you will make your way through The Wizarding World of Harry Potter. This is such an incredible part of the park especially for die-hard Harry Potter fans because it’s like your actually walking through Hogsmeade from the movies. There is so much to see in do in this part of Islands of Adventure but after your done riding all the rides, walking through the shops and taking photos I highly recommend you check out the Three Broomsticks Restaurant and have a bite to eat. Not only is the food really good but the atmosphere is so much fun and really brings the whole Harry Potter experience to life.
Since this is such a popular restaurant in the park I recommend eating before 11:00am or after 2:00pm so that your not hitting the lunch hour rush. We ate at about 1:00pm and it wasn’t too bad we ended up waiting in line for about 20 minutes but there is so much to look at while your in line the time goes by pretty fast.
Three Broomsticks is a counter-service restaurant so you will order your food at the counter and take it to your table. There are many different food options to choose from including the Great Feast which includes chicken, ribs, salad, corn on the cob and more! It runs around $50 and feeds a family of four. I ended up choosing the Chicken Platter which came with 1/4 of a chicken breast, roasted potatoes and a corn on the cob. My meal was around $11 which wasn’t too bad considering the amount of food.
The kids meals on the other hand are a bit pricey and don’t come with very much food so if your kids are really hungry I would go ahead and spend the few extra dollars for the adult meal. My son ordered the Fish and Chips which was about $8 and only came with one piece of fish so he ended up eating off of our plates to get full. Now a visit to The Wizarding World of Harry Potter wouldn’t be complete without a ice cold glass of Butterbeer which you can get at Three Broomsticks. We each had a glass and I can tell you it was way better than I expected. Butterbeer to me is a cross between crème soda and butterscotch. It’s really sweet and also comes in frozen which was my favorite.
