Good Looking Room

Quite a handsome place, we were seated within moments of our arrival. The waiter was good but didn't really go out of his way. The food was good but not exceptional.. Victoria thought the drinks were really well made. Then again we were in a amusement park.

This is the best restaurant at Hollywood Studios and one of the best restaurants on Disney property. The Cobb Salad and the filet are top notch, but you have to save some room for the mini-desserts. The ambiance is truly unique and offers a relaxing escape from the crowded park. The outdoor bar offers seating on a first come, first... More

We enjoyed both the Wagu and Koby fillet steaks that this restaurant offers together with the recommended red wine accompaniment. The vegetables were great too. Finally, the desert wine flight is an education in some delightful taste experiences. If you manage to get seated on the upper level, rather than in the lower body of the restaurant then you can...

We had the Brown Derby-Fantasmic package on our last night at Disney. Our dinner reservations were at 4, which ended up being about right. It was a long leisurely meal, but service was good and the food generally was too. The decor is old-school Hollywood like the original Brown Derby. It was a chilly night and we were seated near...

We had lunch reservations while visiting Hollywood Studios. My daughter loves their burger and from the look of things, it is a very popular item on the menu. I witnessed many, many being delivered out of the kitchen. The Cobb Salad was also a popular item and they mix it tableside. We both had the Grilled Wagyu Beef Burger with... More

We had lunch reservations on Thursday, February 4, 2016, at 1:05 pm for lunch. I made the reservations approximately one month out. We arrived for lunch 15 minutes earlier and only ended up waiting about 5 minutes before we were seated. The restaurant has a cool atmosphere. Hundreds of sketches of actors/actresses adorn the walls. The dining area is fairly... More

Booked this Restaurant as part of our Disney stay and I hate to leave a bad review as the food was great, but compelled by the attitude of the waiter. He was rude, abrupt and once he discovered we were on the dining plan he got even worse. No welcome just a "what do you want", dumped the drinks on... More

Modeled after the original Brown Derby in Hollywood, the food here is very good with good service as well. A welcome respite from a day in the park

We ate at the Lounge outside of the restaurant, which has an entirely different menu. While the waitstaff was terrifically friendly, the service was just as bad as it can get. We were seated at a little past 7pm and didn't get our meals for an hour. That also meant that we had to eat our meals while we missed... More
