Great service and fantastic decor, food was good

I had hoped to be wowed by the food here, and it was very nice, but I thought it expensive for the quality and menu on offer. The wine menu is OK but pricey.

We had dinner last week on the Fantasmic dining package that included VIP tickets for the show later. Our server was very nice and took our orders. The drink service was very slow and the appetizers actually arrived before the drinks. The salad was very good and the fish was nice, as well. The food was good but nothing special.... More

This restaurant did a better job of recreating the old Hollywood better than much of the Hollywood studios park. Our server made our meal experience incredible. She was very helpful with elections and recommendations. The Cobb salad was great. My steak was done very well. The Fantasmic dinner package was a great value. It was more of a value than... More

The food was outstanding, phenominal. The service was probably the best I have ever had at a WDW restaurant. We were celebrating our 35th wedding anniversary, and the waiter could not have been better. He went out of his way to make it a meal to remember.

The restaurant is beautiful and elegant, the food is excellent and the service is exceptional. We ate here during Star Wars weekends and forgot about the heat and crowds for a while. A must-do when touring DHS.

We have just come back from Disney and I have to tell you that the Brown Derby was by far the best meal and service we had on our trip. The staff were really accommodating, the food was to die for. Especially the lamb. If you get a chance, this (and bongos at downtown Disney) is definitely the place to... More

Food and wine here were fabulous. I tried the wine flight - which is three mini glasses of wine served with an information sheet (all three glasses add up to one normal sized glass) Leave a space for dessert it's a must to try the three mini desserts. The place was busy but the waiter attentive and food came out... More

We had a group of 6 and were very glad to have had a reservation! I think while we waited to be seated they turned away more than they invited in. The Brown Derby was full of Hollywood memorabilia. The staff was outstanding and the food was excellent all served in big beautiful dining areas. Enjoy the contemporary cuisine!
