Very Nice

It was a moderately quiet Wednesday evening. Perfect for a first date. The waitstaff was attentive but didn't hover and also didn't rush us out. My grilled salmon salad was excellent. My date's steak was a bit overcooked, but he enjoyed it.

The Brown Derby is much like an Outback Steak house. The food was good but not great while the service was excellent.

You know that when you go to the Brown Derby, you will get some pretty good food and it didn't disappoint. The waitress was slow to come over and then pretty much disappeared. We asked if they had any happy hour specials and she said only in the bar...hmmm...I've been to others and they offer the drink specials in the... More

We arrived at our hotel rather late in the evening and found several places were already closed. The staff at the Brown Derby had just closed down for the night, but allowed my husband to come in and choose a dinner from the menu. He brought it back to me at the hotel and the food was divine. It was... More

Tried to make a reservation for 11 at noon on Saturday. Was advised that they would only take a reservation up to 4 people. What a stupid policy. Will never go there again

Once upon a time (nearly 40 yrs ago) my parents occasionally splurged & took the family out for dinner. It was a big deal back then, and sometimes we were forced to "dress nice" so we could go to The Brown Derby. Sometime between then and now The Brown Derby completely fell off my radar. I guess I assumed they'd... More

We make it a regular treat on a Monday it Tuesday night to go and get their T-Bone special! It's grilled to sizzling perfection with their wonderful fresh baked buns and salad! I love the loaded baked potato with it or treat myself to the sweet potato! Best steak deal in Cleveland!

We had dinner here while doing a driving trip of the states. The inside is attractive, and the food was great. My husband had a great steak. He was ordering a different one and the waitress said we have a special on a different one which is even better. She did not have to do that as we would not... More
