Took friends with us to the Brown derby in Medina. (We go out of our way to go to this one because of the quality of the food and service.) We went on a Sunday for the prime rib. It was done right and delicious. My husband had the cod and it was also prepared just right. We will be... More

Went with my family for dinner one night and absolutely loved it. The staff were extremely nice and helpful- our waitress was great! The food was very good, comforting steakhouse classics with great sides. Very attentive and very good. Great atmosphere.

Our first visit to Brown Derby in over 10 years after many disappointing meals. The old Brown Derby quality and service are back. The restaurant was clean and appealing and the food (steaks) and service were first rate. We look forward to our next visit.

One word: Delicious! The interior design is so fancy and the dimmed lighting is gorgeous. It makes you feel like you eating at a 5 star restaurant. I am a vegetarian and they even have food for me! Their Mac n cheese is homemade and not the cheap kraft kind (you can tell by the price haha) My parents love... More

The atmosphere is very nice, that particular one in Medina didn't have a view but the filet most certainly made up for it.

I was staying at the hotel nearby and walked over for an early dinner, late lunch. Had a very leasing waitress and enjoyed a burger. Can recommend for the same.

We stop in Medina on our way to Indiana every year. This is the second time we have eaten here and it seems to be better than before. We were tired and the atmosphere here relaxes you. We ordered a tuna appetizer. I had never eaten tuna before but I look forward to having it again. If you ever go... More

Of course the steak was great but the baked sweet potato with cinnamon brown sugar butter was delectable. The family style salad was a great balance of lettuce and veggies. Our server was attentive and helpful as well as pleasant and cheerful. Severe weather came through that night and the staff made everyone comfortable. Thank you for a nice dining... More

We were very pleased with our stop at the Brown Derby after a day of driving. We stayed next door at the Hampton Inn and walked over. Our server was very friendly and helpful. The food and local craft beer were great. Being from NY we were shocked at how affordable such a fine dinner was. If you are in... More

This is a great place for a casual dinner. The service is good, the atmosphere is good, and all of their food is good. They are noted for their wood fired steaks, but the seafood is very good too.
