Disappointed

We had a reservation for 3:50 pm and still had to wait 30 minutes for a table. Our server was very nice, but the food was not anything to brag about. We had better meals at other Disney restaurants. We will not be returning here in the future.

We made a reservation months in advance. The atmosphere is wonderful and the food is fantastic. We enjoyed the small desserts after our delicious meal. Wine was very good. We really enjoyed our waitress Christena. We would definitely return here the next time we are at the Studios.

We popped into the lounge for lunch since we didn't want to worry about reservations on our arrival day. In this lounge, you can order off of both the lounge menu as well as the full Hollywood Brown Derby menu (prices are all the same). I've eaten in the main restaurant before, but I really loved this outdoor lounge as... More

We had reservations at 3:45 and still waited one hour for a table. No apologies. The food was good and nice wine list. I think this is an adult place and not really for small children. The little girls turned from princesses to villans during dinner. We got the fantasmic package which was really convenient. Again I would NOT take... More

We had lunch at the Brown Derby on several other occasions and enjoyed another good meal on our recent trip. The selections are varied and the food is very good. It is not one of the cheaper options but we felt we the quality and quantity of the food the Brown Derby provides is well worth it.

A classic Hollywood setting, great service and an atmosphere that is authentic and exciting make the Brown Derby a must experience restaurant at Disney World. The food is good, however, I wish they would stick with the original Brown Derby menu and quit fussing with silly fancy dishes the don't reflect the authentic pallet of the original Brown Derby menu....

Just returned from Disney and attended the Lunch with an Imagineer at the Brown Derby in Hollywood Studios. We have always wanted to do this, but never were able to because we usually have two toddler grandchildren in tow. This trip was adults only---since this is limited to only 12 participants, it fills quickly--I booked it at the 180 day... More

Hollywood Brown Derby is NOT a restaurant for you if you are watching your money or have younger kids with you. The kids will hate its atmosphere and the sort of food is not what most kids love. But, for someone looking for an extremely high quality dinner and don't mind the cost, the place is terrific--much better than it... More

It is incredible place! Our waitress, Carol, was outstanding! Food was delicious and cooked to perfection! I highly recommend the Cobb Salad and the Margaritas are must try :) Pasta dishes are amazing too :) It is moderately priced and one of the best restaurants in Disney World!
