Summary

The menu is very similar to Thunder Falls Terrace in Jurassic Park, with which it shares the title of best counter-service restaurant in IOA. The ribs or chicken, or the combo plate, are your best bets, though the tartar sauce is a tasty side to the fish-and-chips (made from fresh cod). The Great Feast family platter includes ribs, chicken, corn, potatoes, and salad for four for $60.99 ($15.99 each additional portion); even a large family may have leftovers, so bring along doggie bags. As the only dining option in Hogsmeade, Three Broomsticks stays busy all day. Like the Leaky Cauldron, you can reserve breakfast at Three Broomsticks by booking through your travel agent or the Ticket Center at your Universal Resort hotel, and walk-ins for day guests are also usually available, but there are probably better uses of your morning touring time.

Setting and Atmosphere

Modeled after the Three Broomsticks inn in the Harry Potter books and films, this buffeteria is the most visually interesting eatery at IOA. Open beams, dark furniture, and the contiguous Hog’s Head pub (see page 234) make Three Broomsticks a place to linger and savor. The detail is incredible, and it’s one of the best-themed restaurants we’ve seen. The amazing thing about the decor, aside from the vaulted ceiling, is that Universal’s architects managed to hide virtually every modern convenience, such as air-conditioning vents, behind 18th-century facades. Alfresco dining is behind the restaurant.

House Specialties

Breakfast items include English bacon, black pudding, baked beans, and grilled tomato; pancakes with bacon; and porridge with fruit. Lunch and dinner offerings are fish-and-chips, rotisserie chicken, smoked spareribs, shepherd’s pie, Cornish pasty, turkey legs, and nonalcoholic Butterbeer. Children’s menu items include chicken, macaroni and cheese, fish-and-chips, and chicken fingers.
