It was a tasty treat making out not so exciting Disney's Hollywood Studios visit. Our family took on a meal plan and it was honored so we enjoyed my husband's Roasted Rack Of Lamb and my Grouper with half a lobster tail and orzo. The dishes wee divine! The kids enjoyed their kiddie meals too... read more

The lounge area outside was a nice place to sit and have a drink while waiting for our table. Cocktails were very strong. Atmosphere inside the restaurant was unique, service was great and dinner was not rushed. The scallop and pork belly appetizer was culinarily exquisite! I had the entree portion of the Cobb Salad and it was more than... More

Came here years ago and was not impressed. Just proves you need to give places a 2nd chance. Went for a late lunch and ordered off the meal/show menu which is everything on the menu for a set price that includes the show. Well worth the price and no line waiting for the show that night. The meal this time... More

Booked a table, allowing us VIP seating to Fantastic show. Showed to our table within a few minutes of arriving and our server, Te Te, was excellent. We have eaten in many Disney restaurants and this was probably the best for service food, pricing and ambience. Will certainly return is we visit the Hollywood Studios in the future.

We dined at the Brown Derby several years ago and found it to be very pricey and not worth the money spent. We decided to give it another try and were so happy we did. The food was amazing (beef tips and grouper), the sides that accompanied the main course were very good and well worth the amount charged for... More

Loved this restaurant, especially the mashed potatoes they were awesome. This restaurant is more for grown ups than kids. My kids really didn't the food or atmosphere. Also the grapefruit dessert wasn't what they make it out to be.

The food is always good here, but the grapefruit cake is spectacular. I was really disappointed last year when they changed the dessert options for Fantasmic to be a trio of bite-sized nibbles, and I let our server Scott know. He walked out moments later with a large slice of Grapefruit cake - amazing. He also put up with two... More

Nice food, good waiter service but a bit pricey. The ambiance of the restaurant was good along with the décor.

It was an excellent meal, with a old Hollywood flair. The menu is small, but good selections. The food arrived quickly and we were on our way back to the park.

Worst dining at Disney---ever. Reservation snafu; no boosters (said the mgr was getting more but we had to ask some time after we were seated); abrupt, almost rude waiter; confusion over meal plan (even the mgr didn't know); entree served on top of appetizers; didn' t clear apps plates to serve entrees and acted insulted that we didn't make room....;...
