My wife and I have visited this Disney park many times in the past, but have never eaten at the Brown Derby restaurant. It always seemed to be elusive and sort of haut cuisine for our visits to Disney. We decided this time that it was time for us to stop in for lunch, and we were not disappointed. Being... More

We arrived at Hollywood Studios early (8.20am) to ensure that we could get a Fast Pass for 'Toy Story Midway Mania' (we missed it on our earlier visit the previous week). Once I had our Fast Passes in hand we then went back to Guest Relations to book 'Sci-fi diner' for lunch only to find out that it was already... More

I love love love this place!! Have the cobb salad. I guarantee you will not have had anything like it before. It is a little pricey, but honestly I think it is worth the splurge. The service is great and I really love the atmosphere. You can imagine yourself sitting around with the Hollywood elite! Make sure you read the... More

For a foodie family, finding great places to eat is a must. I had great trepidation about the food I would encounter at Disneyworld but hoping for the best I picked a range of pricier restaurants. I was not in any way disappointed and we loved the ambience and decor of this restaurant. The fish and steaks were superb and... More

We were so looking forward to eating here as it was our first experience at eating at a Disney park. I knew it was going to be costly but I thought as it was a treat we would eat well. To our disappointment after a long wait for food our warm rolls arrived with a scoop of margarine!! I don't... More

Wonderful food and service in this faux legendary iconic restaurant. The asparagus bisque was incredible, as were the crab cakes. Highly recommend the lamb, Cobb salad, and the cheese burger with pastrami and fried egg on top. Can't go wrong probably with anything there.

After going to a number of restaurants on our week long Disney World adventure, a lot of the restaraunts are pretty ordinary and leave a lot to be desired. This was a standout. The outdoor seating was great. Food was fresh with nice presentation. The waitstaff was really accomodating and went out of their way to make our dinner great.... More

We had a fantastic dinner at the Brown Derby last week. The menu offers great variety. Dishes were very well executed. Bar has great variety, especially for a Disney park (please, no more frozen, sweet drinks!) The atmosphere was awesome. The only demerit was the service. While our meal was served promptly our server was really lacking in personality and... More
