This is THE place to eat in Hollywood Studios UNLESS you are looking for kid-friendly or vegan menus. It's pricey but if you squint a little you can imagine yourself seated in the real thing vack when and just maybe Flynn or Power or Lombard or Gable will come strolling in.

Everything from the staff to the food was top rate. I had the lamb for dinner and it came with some very yummy veggies. Fantastic meal. As all things Disney, it was on the pricey side but well worth it. Our waitress was extremely friendly and on top of everything.

Well, we waited a long time to visit this restaurant. We tried many times to get a reservation. Well finally, last summer we did. It was WAY overpriced, and very loud and packed inside. You need to know that it has a very limited menu and is not truly kid friendly. I did have a big salad, but what I... More

We had a nice lunch there. The Cobb Salad was the best Cobb I have ever had. The service was great and we enjoyed our time there. It was great having a convenient place to eat during our visit to the park. It was one the more expensive restaurants we ate at during our stay at the resort, but they... More

We booked a reservation at the last minute and were glad that we did! We had travelled all day and started our vacation at Hollywood Studios. We were hungry and tried and the early dinner we had at the Brown Derby was just the pick me up we needed. We all had the Osso Buco and enjoyed every last bite.... More

I dined here Nov. 2014 as part of a dinner/Fantasmic dining package. I expected this to be a bit ritzier than it was but then again, it's in the middle of a theme park. So it's a bit disappointing to look around and guests are in Mickey Mouse t shirts, tank tops, shorts and flip flops or tennis shoes and... More

NOT IMPRESSED and I'd be less than happy if I used 2 dining credits for that meal but we paid out of pocket. My mom and I had the Cobb salad and my daughter had the fettuccini Alfredo and they were both SUPER salty! All 3 of us were wondering what's up with the chef and his salt shaker... Yuk...... More

Hollywood Brown Derby in Disney's Hollywood Studio is a wonderful place to eat. Our favorite dish is the Cobb Salad. The atmosphere is not typical Disney. It is fashion after the Brown Derby in California, with black and white celebrity photos and caricatures filling the walls. So it might not be your small child's favorite place to eat, it will...

One of my favorite restaurants at Walt Disney World resort.You can't get a better meal at Hollywood Studios. Great atmosphere in a re-creation of the original Brown Derby in L.A. For such a busy place, the service is perfect and the food delicious. Although there are many steak places at WDW, the Brown Derby's is one of the best. But... More
