As we do with each trip to Disney, we had an delicious meal- I had the duck while my aunt and mother had the steak. Our dining experience was made even better with our server- John (from Baltimore) who was not only attentive and knew the menu like the back of his hand, but also funny and even told us... More

We had a lovely meal and our waiter miguel from Brazil was fantastic. Would recommend dining here, you would never know you are in a theme... More

As in the past , Brown Derby is a welcome relaxation from the hustle and bustle of the park. Excellent wine list , great service and tasty food . In fact I haven't seen some if the wines they offer since my honeymoon in Napa Valley such as Rosenblum Desiree dessert wine . The flights are also fantastic and fairly... More

We have been coming to Disney for several years and always wanted to give this place a try, so I'm a little disappointed that I can't give this place a better review. First, the positives: the decor is really interesting, caricatures of famous people are everywhere and the furnishings are spectacular. We were able to get a table for four... More

We took our son to a lunch with an Imagineer and was so impressed the food that we booked another meal and were not disappointed. The lamb was presliced not my choice, but was delicious. The filets were tender and perfect taste. Cobb Salad is like none other - if you think you had Cobb salad before you need to... More

The waiter was really good and very funny. The food was outstanding. We had a great time. This place is really expensive though. <That's why I didn't give it a 5 star> I would go back in the future.

We walked into the restaurant mid-day without a reservation. When we were told there would be a 40 minute wait, we almost left. The only reason we stayed is that one in our group needed to use the restroom. In the 5 minutes that she was gone, our table was ready. Had that not happened, we would have cancelled our... More

We had been looking forward to a return trip for the famous Cobb Salad and Grapefruit Cake and we were not disappointed! Staff is very friendly and the restaurant feel is casual but up scale. Loved our server Brett from Selena, Kansas, the most! He was great to talk with, very professional and seemed to love being at Disney as... More

We visit Hollywood Studios each year for my birthday and we always have lunch here - have never been disappointed. Service is excellent, food is excellent and it's a nice break from the busy-ness of the park.

I really wanted to give this a prefect score but I'm all fairness I just couldn't. We made our reservation as part of the Fantasmic package with Disney. We were on time for our 3:35 reservation and were handed a beeper for our wait???? What the heck? We waited 40 minutes for a table and we weren't the only ones... More
